I wore a second, and third dress. Certainly not the norm, and from what I've heard, not a popular option among other brides. I got my second dress at David's Bridal and my third was from Rent the Runway.
I have never really considered two dresses, but I am keeping in mind that I want one formal enough to get married in but fun enough for the party. Afterwards, or the following day, I'll probably wear a cute white dress, but not spend another few hundred on a formal one.
I understand wanting multiple dresses, I just don't want it for myself.
I had dress regret about my original dress so I bought a new one. I'll be wearing the new one to the ceremony, but I started to fall back in love with my original one. I may end up wearing that one to the reception.
I'm changing for me and my dad's dance (it's choreographed and would be impossible in my gown) and also for our afterparty (will probably put my gown back on between the two.) This is mine, it's easy to move in but still classy and bridal...currently on sale for $100!
I've have a couple friends who are competitive ballroom dancers, and they did this because they fell in love with ballgown dresses and couldn't possibly dance in them. That being said, their original dresses were actually wedding dresses and their second dresses were floor length white dresses that were fractions of the cost.
I am wearing my dress all day. I have modified mine quite a bit (dyed it, and added a beaded belt), so it is very unique. I might change for the after party, but only if I find something I love and the price is right.
I'm wearing a second dress simply because I can't move in the ceremony dress. I plan to dance all night so I'm changing. I haven't found the second dress yet but it won't be nearly as expensive as the first.
My hubby also changed too, but just once. (He's the fashionista in our family). I also thought the price wasn't bad for the three. My rent the runway dress was $80 (but I had to return it the next day). My second David's Bridal dress was $1500, and the one I wore for the ceremony was $3200. So true, less than many brides spend on one.
@brooklynbride love his second look! Where'd he get the tux from?
