Multiple Wedding Gowns: Pros and Cons


Nicole Richie, Chelsea Clinton, and Carrie Underwood wore multiple wedding reception dresses, so why shouldn’t you? Here are some pros and cons on both sides of the subject.


  • It’s fun to play different roles, and slip into multiple outfit changes, especially when it’s your time to shine.
  • Your mother insisted that you wear her wedding gown, so you opt to wear it in the ceremony and then change into a gown of your choosing for the reception.
  • You can’t decide! There are so many amazing bridal gowns to choose from, how could you possibly choose just one?
  • Your ceremony gown is too difficult to dance in.

Why Not:

  • The first reason you should reconsider wearing more than one dress lies in your answer to this question: Why do you think you need multiple bridal dresses? Perhaps the dress you’ve already purchased isn’t the one. Maybe you jumped the gun and bought a dress when you knew in your heart of hearts that your search for the perfect gown was not quite over.
  • If your reason is that you simply want the best of both worlds; one in which you are a princess in a full ball gown, and another where you are the sexy seductress in a white cocktail dress, think of your wedding dress this way: How often do you get the opportunity to be the belle of the ball, and prance around in a full length wedding gown? Not often.
  • Your wedding gown is expensive, so why not get your money’s worth?
