I know celebs like Kim Kardashian often rock multiple wedding dresses on their big day, but can real girls like us pull it off?
When my friend Kaila got married, she chose a gorgeous wedding gown, but it was super heavy. She bought a (much cheaper) backup gown to use during the reception, in case she got tired of lugging her big one around. Not surprisingly, she didn’t change into gown #2. Who wants to leave their rockin’ wedding reception to do a costume change?
I’m definitely a one-wedding-dress kind of girl. In my opinion, this new phenomenon of buying multiple dresses is a great way for the bridal industry to bring in more money, but other than that it seems silly. I do understand why Kaila bought a second dress, and she was smart about it: she bought it off the rack, left the tags on, didn’t get it altered, and was able to return it since she never put it on.
I’m all for buying another outift/dress to leave the reception in (so you’re not driving away in a full-on wedding gown), but you won’t see me wearing more than one wedding dress on my big day!
That’s just my opinion… what do you think?
Would you wear more than one wedding dress on your big day? If you’re into the idea, is there a certain number of dresses that are “acceptable” before it becomes too much? Or are you into keeping it simple and sticking with one dress? I’d love to know what you all think!
