Every bride wants to feel special, elegant, and beautiful in her wedding dress. Generally, when you go dress shopping, you’re looking for “THE ONE”. Would you want to change out of that wedding dress into a second? Some brides claim that it’s a good idea to wear a longer dress for the ceremony and a shorter dress for the reception. Others say one amazing dress is expensive enough and brides should get their moneys worth by wearing it the entire day.
We asked, “What do you think of multiple dresses for the wedding day rather than that ONE dress? Tell us why you would do one or the other!” Here are some answers that may help you decide:
“It’s fun; can be a little over the top – but fun. It’s the one day that can be completely over the top – have fun with it! 🙂 I had 2 dresses, but 1 was a get-away dress (shorter) because it took multiple people to get me in and out of my princess dress and that didn’t seem fair to my husband! Lol” -Sara C.
“Just because you are princess doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your own comfort on your wedding day. Have the beautiful dress to walk down the aisle and the cute playful number to dance your first night as a Mrs. away. :)” -Trina M.
“I believe in 1 dress! You paid a pretty penny for it and after fittings you develop a relationship with you dress! The way it fits, the color, the way it makes you feel! No other dress can do that for you! I do believe in more than one shoe! I had pink heels for the ceremony and sequenced pink converse sneakers for the reception!” -Veronica R.
“I think you should only have 1 dress. Weddings are so hectic as it is I can’t imagine having to deal with a wardrobe change. I also think is nice to have that one special dress to remember that one special moment in your life.” -Jamie B.
“I only want one dress. I want to enjoy every possible minute of that day & feel like wardrobe changes would take away precious moments that could be spent with my new husband, our family & friends celebrating our special day. Plus, other areas of the budget would benefit from the extra money not spent on a second dress.” -Anne W.
“I’m personally doing just ONE dress. If I’m going to spend that much money on a dress, I want to wear it for as long as possible!” -Kristal B.
“I think the only wardrobe change I would make would be to take off something from the dress. like the tail that would make the dress easier to dance in. Nothing that will take a lot of time!” -Kenia P.
“I prefer only one dress. It has to be the dress and anything else would pale in comparison. If that is the case, why would you ever want to take it off. You only get one day to wear it!” -Patricia A.
“Your perfect dress is like your one true mate, you only need just one.” -Vee O.
“Good I personally had two dresses for my wedding day & loved it this was helped me since my mom wanted me to wear her dress & my mother in law also wanted me to wear hers too (since she only had sons) no one’s feeling were hurt & that caused me less stress on my wedding day ;-).” -Chris S.
