Two- In- One Wedding Dresses

Ladies! How do we feel about wedding gowns with larger, more dramatic trains, and would you ever purchase one?

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here... my dress has a train but I plan to bustle it in the evening. Is that what you mean by 2 in 1? 

    I do love a dramatic train though, and veil!

    Not exactly; I'm referring to styles which feature a completely detachable train. Ines di Santo's Barcelona gown springs to mind in particular.

    I was looking at an Eddy K one online, I never ended up trying it on though. I think they are a great idea if you want something more traditional for the ceremony then something more slinky for the reception.

    There is a lady on here with a planning thread whose dress has a detachable train, think it might be David Tutera?

    Wed2Be sell detachable overskirts so I assume they are a thing - I believe some ladies wear the overskirt for the ceremony then the slinkier gown for the reception.

    I'm too big for slinky gowns anyhow so they aren't for me!

    I have opted for one...

     

    Personally I think it's pretty useful, as nice to have the drama of the big dress and then have something more manageable for the party.

     

    I have bought this one from Pronovias

    Ah ok! I think they’re a nice idea. Personally, I wouldn’t pick one as I wouldnt want to detach it, but I don’t see why not if that’s your style, and you want a change in the evening! 

  • I tried on a Tara Keeley one with a detachable train.  I loved it but it wasn't suitable for my beach wedding.

  • You have shared a nice post!

    N111 your dress is stunning!

    I think this is a great idea - I personally am to lazy to even have a train for any of the day, so got a ballet length dress! Loving that I can go to the toilet unassisted!

    I agree N111 your dress is truly beautiful, I think they are a good idea, the drama of the bigger dress for the ceremony then a slinkier number for the evening. So 2 looks, and also a lot of ladies like the idea of a bigger dress but are put off by the thought of wearing it all day.

  • How about one like Sophie, Countess of Wessex? It had a medieval style tulle overlay, but you could tell that there was a strappy, slimmer dress underneath. I expect she only wore the outer bit for the ceremony and wore the strappy dress to the reception.
