One of the most difficult decisions brides have to make during wedding planning is what they want to wear on a day when all eyes will be on them. Should you opt for the crystal beaded lace or the delicate chiffon? Would you rather look like a sexy siren in a fitted mermaid cut or like the belle of the ball in organza? It’s not easy to narrow down the thousands of wedding dress options to that one perfect dress that fits all your needs. That’s why the trend has recently become not to limit yourself to just one dress, but buy two instead. So if you’re trying to choose between two dresses, we’d like to encourage you to think in pairs because, much like a marriage, two really is just better than one. Here are four reasons why.
1. For comfort. Wedding dresses that are dazzling during the ceremony aren’t always functional during the reception. That’s why many brides are now choosing a shorter dress for the reception. Style 6733 from Mori Lee’s Voyage collection allows you to work the room during cocktail hour, without limiting your mobility.
2. To create an impact. If there ever was a day in your life when you should be the center of attention, it’s your wedding day. And nothing creates a greater buzz than wearing not just one wedding dress stunner, but two. Recreate the impact you made when you walked down the aisle when you walk into your reception with this crystal beaded lace cocktail dress and its removable tulle overskirt.
3. If your wedding ceremony takes place at a different venue than your reception. When selecting your wedding dress, it’s always important to keep your location in mind. If you’re getting married on the beach, but your reception is in a ballroom, each location has its own unique ambiance – and your dress should blend well with the setting. Having two dresses ensures a seamless transition, and Style 6707 could be the perfect fit for the party.
4. To keep white … white. There’s nothing more beautiful than the contrast of a white or ivory dress against the lush, green backdrop of trees on a quiet lake, or a garden with roses in full bloom. But there’s nothing worse than an expensive white or ivory wedding dress getting ruined in a matter of hours from it dragging on the ground behind you. Keep white looking bright by transitioning to a short wedding dress for your reception, like this floral organza dress, with its matching satin tie sash and flower.
