Anyone having 2 dresses?

Is anyone having 2 dresses?

My dress has quite a long train, I love dancing and Im thinking of getting another dress maybe below the knee still like a wedding dress though so I can dance in.

Do you think this would be Ok and does anyone know where to start looking all the dresses Ive seen are full length?

    Also, if you don't want to spend a fortune on the second dress for the evening check out ebay and you can get a ball gown / wedding dress for around £80 from china. They are usually copies of designer dresses and obviously not as fantastic as the real thing but still nice.

    I bought one for my registry wedding in two weeks time, and after a few minor alterations by my mum it looks lovely on and only cost £85.


  • Hi I am hainv two, both full length one pink and quite big for the day and one ivory from monsoon which was great value for our private evening meal. I also like coast for shorter occasion dresses. I think its a great idea and a fab excuse to buy more shoes and accessories! I think quite a few of us are having two!
  • Me me me!!

    We're having 2 celebrations (a couple of weeks apart) so i'll be having a dress for the civil ceremony celebration and then another, most likely a Candy Anthony, for the second celebration.

    If i could think of a way to have more then i would!!

    Im having two- one big white ivory number(Alan Hannah) for our official wedding at home(ie church followed by reception) and then one for wedding part 2 in Italy with our family over there(and anyone else who wants to come!)

    Haven't picked a dress for the second part...yet!!

    H2B says I don't really need another dress but I think I do...y'know purely for the good of my

    I'm having two also. A long dress for the wedding and a short for in the evening. We are getting married abroad and i dont really want to wear a long dress out for the meal. I change my mind daily on the style of the long one, current fav is Pronovias Dango andt think i am going to get a Candy Anthony or Stephanie James for the evening (both tea length 50's style). But as someone else has said i think i will get the short dress made in China from Milly Bridal. And im also going to get the long dress from America as its so much cheaper. That way i can justify two pairs of shoes ;o)

    I have 2.

    My day dress is the full works, long train, heavy, etc and I just adore adore adore dancing. There is no way I want to be dragging that thing round a dance floor and not being able to enjoy the biggest party I've ever hosted because of a dress lol!

    I picked up a cheap bridal dress off the high street (I know, not very BBB but it fits like a glove and doesn't look it), took it up to just above the knee and added a big sash in the same colour as my bridesmaids will have and off we go. Big traditional dress for day, slinky little number for night and now I get to cast my funky shapes on the floorimage
  • Haven't really thought of having two dresses but reading everyones messages it make sense!

    I am getting married in Cyprus with a long Ivory dress and now i am thinking of getting another one in a shorter lengh for the evening.

    Thankyou all i'll be busy this weekend trying to find another dress, don't know what my fiance will say. :0)

    I went to Monsoon the other day for a dress for the races and their bridal section is great for a shorter (and cheaper) but beautiful dress. I think they start about £200.

    I wore two dresses and I was very glad to be able to change after our photographer left at 9.30. To put it very bluntly I was sweating like a b!tch! I was so hot even in March and it was nice to get changed and put on my sparkly maggie sottero number to get down to some serious dancing!
  • Hi dawnshaun,

    I had to post on here even though it it a bit off subject. You are the first person I have ever heard mention the Pronovias Dango dress! I spotted it on their website and really like it. After phoning about 20 different stockists, I have finally located one to try on. I have an appointment tomorrow. My dad is taking me because it is 2 and a half hours away. Bless! I hope I like it! Have you tried it on? I am getting married in Italy in July 2009 so I didn't want anything too big. At only 5'2'' I think that something in this style would suit me much more. I wonder if my budget would stretch to two dresses though lol? If I really love the main one though I won't want to take it off. Do you happen to know how much it costs approximately?
