  • poll: Having 2 wedding dresses, is it over the top?

    Yes, over the top for your wedding

    It's acceptable but people may think it's odd

    It's a good choice

    Not sure

    I said it’s acceptable-  I really love both gowns. I think the second is perfect for a garden affair!!!  It’s your day…I say go for it.

    both of those dresses are gorgeous. i will be honest, i am not really a fan the 2 dress movement. many ladies here have done it well and it worked for them, but since youre asking for opinions, that is mine. it seems a bit wasteful to me, regardless of budget. i keep thinking of this one episode of friends about christmas trees, and it applies to wedding dresses too. they have destiny to be displayed and bring joy to all, and with such a brief window of time to be displayed, switching half way through you arent letting either fulfill its destiny 🙂

     

    that being said, if you have and love both dresses then do what you like. if any of your guests have an issue with it, thats really their problem.

    I would just wear your 2nd dress.  You won’t get to fully enjoy both dresses, so just pick one and run with it.  It sounds like the 2nd one is really what you have envisioned, and it happens to be my personal style too, so I am biased towards that one!

    I like the idea of it as a “going away dress”

    @EnglishWifey:  I think it’s a great idea! I can’t imagine having a garden party and hoping to have some fun while still wearing dress #1 (although it is gorgeous!) I really think it’s a great decision and I have seen a lot of brides change into something that is more suitable for their reception (a going away dress…worn earlier than going away)

    I don’t see the point in a woman needing two dresses for her wedding. If her first dress was very over the top, ballgowny or just difficult to move around in, sure. But both dresses look uncomfortable. To me it would be a waste of money and I’d probably shake my head, however if it’s something you’re into, then my opinion doesn’t really matter.

    I think it’s a bit over the top – but who cares?  Do what you like.  What I don’t get is why you want to wear two dresses.  Is one too uncomfotable for dancing or something?

    @EnglishWifey:  Well they strike me as very different dresses, especially if you do your hair like these models. The first one is all churchy and formal and the one is a hair down and dancing dress.

    It would be very unusual in my circle to have two dresses and I would think it is odd – we get such a short time in our dresses as it is. But, if it makes you happy, go for it.
