Two Bridal Dresses Better Than One
Dreamed of walking down the aisle in the perfect wedding gown? First you have to sift through the latest bridal gowns of the season, but narrowing down the selection to just one “perfect” dress is no easy feat. White and ivory are classics that are hard to beat, but wouldn’t you look stunning in one of the colorful wedding dresses that have been making a splash lately?
You can make your job of selecting the perfect dress easier by taking part in a trend that has been growing across the country — having two wedding dresses instead of just one! Sound strange? It may not be the perfect scenario for every wedding out there, but having two bridal dresses can actually help brides enjoy their special day even more!
Have your (wedding) cake and eat it, too, when you pick that gorgeous gown you’ve always wanted to get married in but isn’t comfortable or practical enough to wear through the reception. Traditional and intricately detailed dresses are perfect during the ceremony, especially if you plan to hand it down later in life, and a quick costume change later you can be in one of the more comfortable wedding gowns that still give you that “just-married” look.
If you’ve always wanted to add a splash of color to your big day, having a second dress to wear to your reception after donning a white gown for the ceremony can be a lifesaver — keeping many family members satisfied that traditions have been upheld while still allowing you the luxury of wearing colors you love.
One other reason that women choose to go with two bridal dresses instead of one is when the locations of their ceremony and their reception are very different. The wedding gowns that are perfect for an outdoor ceremony aren’t necessarily ideal for a ballroom reception (especially if the bottom seam or train gets dirty).
