    Default Two dresses

    I'm in the middle of planning my wedding and I'm procrastinating over the idea of two dresses(after falling in love with two different dresses!) one for the ceremony/photos and another for reception.
    Would you, wouldn't you?

    For me it would depend on the style of the dress I was wearing for the ceremony.
    Is it comfortable? Am I able to dance in it? If I liked something that was quite bulky and didn't feel like I could wear it all night then I'd look at a second one.
    I personally won't be getting a second one for my wedding though.

    No, my dress was amazing I wanted to wear it for as long as possible. I actually feel really sad when the bride changes at the reception, it makes me feel like the wedding is over or something ?

    I had 2 different dresses.

    1 traditional dress for ceremony because I loved it and another party dress for the reception because I'm the type that when getting married and having a party likes to drink, smoke, boogie and generally not have to worry about a long dress holding me back.

    The original dress I had chosen was a figure hugging satin. It's quite simple but very elegant and fits in with our theme (old hollywood glam) but other peoples opinions started making me second guess whether it was "enough". I went back out over the weekend and found a second dress that I love equally as much which has all the glitz and glam but it's alot more traditional and restrictive and not sure I would last a full day and night in it. Both are affordable dresses so I was thinking of just getting both

    If I get married again, I'll be changing my dress for the reception.

    Honestly, my wedding dress was gorgeous but the amount of ppl who stepped on it on the dance floor was unreal! I'd probably keep the big dress on for the first dance and speeches etc but then change after the official part of the evening is over.

    A party dress is easier for your new husband to get you out of than a full on wedding dress too

    Default Re: Two dresses

    I had a big dress and I wish that I had changed into something after the meals and formalities. It was quite restrictive when it came to dancing and I couldn't even get drunk because I was sore and uncomfortable towards the end of the night.
    If my dress was lighter, I would have stayed in it all night.

    I had a dress made that was suitable for the occasion and easy to get around in.

    I wanted to stay in it as long as possible so I wouldn't have two.
