I would like to wear 3 dresses on my wedding day which is literally going to be an all day and night affair. Some of my friends and my mother think that its either a waste of money (I'm paying for them, no one else) and/or a waste of time to keep changing. I have two venues. The ceremony will be in an ornate church which would be my dress with a cathedral train, lots of lace, very formal, then the reception venue where I would change into a less cumbersome mermaid style, floor length for eating, dancing, interacting with guests, and then the 'get-away-' dress which is short simple white lace dress. Do you think this is "doing too much?" I love my first dress, and picked it specifically with the church in mind, but I don't want to have to wear it all day because its super heavy nor do I want to have to leave the venue in the second dress and then five seconds later change again anyway. Has anyone done the mutliple dress thing?
Wear whatever you want, it's your day
Maybe scale it back to just 2 dresses
You should really only wear the one dress
And you are? I'm a GirlGuys can not vote on this poll
I personally wouldn't wear more than one dress, but your wedding day is all about you and your partner. If you really want to wear three dresses, then wear three dresses, as long as you're able to afford it. The third sounds like you could find a white lace dress from an upscale store rather than going bridal shopping for it though, to cut back on some costs.
Can you not get your first dress to be something where you can remove the train etc? Or maybe just get a 2 piece and change in to a more wearable skirt? I get ehy you want to do it (I was ready to wear my jeans for my evening do with my corset top because the train was so annoying)...
on the day my sister married her husband she wore two. one for the ceremony that i am sure she could not breath in. the second for the reception, it was short and had straps making it easy for her to dance in. but it is your wedding day and those pictures are forever so do what you want.
If I had had the huge wedding I dreamt about as a teenager I would have had my huge lacy mermaid dress for the ceremony and change into a sparkly silver/white dress for the reception. Then again, the idea of the 3rd dress isn't all that bad for leaving rather then staying in a long dress to go back to the hotel.
Have you ever thought of a reception dress where you could take off the bottom part and have a short dress anyways?
Are you ridiculously rich that you don't know what else to spend your money on OR Where are you buying your dresses? At a Buy 2 get one free store? or what?
Wedding dresses are expensive!!! and really, you can't and you won't wear them ever again.. unless you plan to stay the same size for 25 years and then again for another 25 years... Silver and gold wedding... D:
