I had two dresses because my first one was heavy. It was a big wedding dress that literally weighed 10 pounds. I got a sheath wedding gown for my reception dress, which I changed into after the toasts. It was great for me to be able to change into something light weight that I could move around in, and most importantly, fit between the tables to make rounds in.

I would wait until you are closer to your wedding date to pick a dress. Maybe take a few weeks off. You don’t want to have dress regret later. If you take a break you might find yourself thinking less about one of the dresses and more about the other one.

I have two dresses, though only one was a purchase. My first dress is the Enzoani Elista; the second is my grandma’s wedding dress. Having my grandma’s dress to wear definitely made choosing the Elista easier. Tulle is surprisingly heavy! I wanted another option and I’m thrilled to get to wear my grandma’s gown.

If you can afford it then get both. No regrets!

My first dress (which is for the reception) is beautiful, makes me feel glamorous and sexy.

My second dress, is the dress that I have always been in love with, even before I knew my fiance. When we got engaged the dress of my dreams had been discontinued for about two years. I scoured the DB website trying to find it to totally no avail, so I went ahead shoved it out of my head and purchased the first dress. Well eight months later the dress started haunting me and I started searching for it. I called my nearest (US) DB location to see if it was even feasible to find the dress. Low and behold the dress I wanted was there, by mistake, in the colour I wanted and in just one size too large. I put it on hold, drove four hours to just try it on, and it came home with me. The dress was origionally $1050 I paid $243 AFTER taxes.

I feel your dilemma girl! I purchased the Enzoani Elista dress, and I absolutely love it, but the only problem is I don’t believe I will be able to dance all night in it! I am currently weighing the options of having a “cut the cake dress”, to change into after all the important dances and toasts, and dinner, garter removal, etc., so we can at least enjoy the last hour or two of our reception, Since the future hubby loves to dance! I have decided to go cocktail length, so I can show off the legs! It’s your day, do what makes you happy and don’t worry what anyone else thinks! I thought my mother was going to kill me when I brought up the idea, but she loved it!
