Dedicated December 2021

New Dress?

Jaclyn, on July 2, 2020 at 12:16 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 7

We are currently scheduled to get married on December 12 but are leaning towards postponing the wedding to next year and just having a small backyard ceremony with immediate family this year. My wedding dress was not crazy expensive but its a beautiful satin ballgown. I don't know if I want to wear it twice though. I feel like if I wear it twice it won't be as special when I wear it next year for the big wedding. That and I don't want to wear this ballgown for just a couple of hours and risk it getting dirty or something happening to it. So I'm thinking about getting a more casual dress for the ceremony this year. IDK. For brides who have or are going to postpone are you wearing your wedding dress twice or getting a second dress?

    I totally agree with pp ! if i had more than one chance to wear my gown, i would!

    but i've been seeing a lot of brides here who when they elope or have their ceremony first, they wear a slimmer or less formal dress. and then save their gowns for the big celebration later

    I’m not wearing my wedding dress for my backyard wedding this year because your right I didn’t want it to get dirty but I will wear it twice next year for a party and I’m renewing my vows on my honey moon so I’m gonna wear it again but I really think it’s up to you if your afraid of it getting dirty then you can hold off on it til next year.

    Hi Jaclyn! It's a totally personal call! Smiley heart

    A lot of brides weighed in on this dress decision in this discussion: Still getting married on your date? Will you wear your wedding dress?, and several people shared their dresses and inspiration here: Show me your micro wedding/elopement dresses!

    I did a different white dress for courthouse wedding and saving the special dress on wedding day. Since I live with husband, I want it to be a surprise for him on that day. It’s really your call. Plenty of brides are planning to wear their gowns 2x, especially this year.
