We know the struggle – We want to walk down the aisle in an elegant, figure-hugging showstopper, yet want to have fun, dance, and move like there is no tomorrow at our reception. So, how can we have the best of both worlds, and what are the pros and cons of having multiple outfits on my big day?
Let’s talk cons
Time And Effort
Changing your wedding outfit throughout the day requires more coordination and, in turn, more helpers and time to create the style you desire.
Unfortunately, most dresses come with a price tag! If you are wanting to keep your budget below a certain price, you will have to get creative to create multiple looks (keep reading for more inspo).
Less Time Wearing Your Ceremony Dress
You looked at it for weeks. Months even. Then you put it on and after a few short and sweet moments, it’s time to let go again. Wearing a second dress for your reception means that you won’t get to wear your ceremony dress for as long.
We’ve had enough of the negatives, let’s talk positives!
Impress your husband/wife during your ceremony and AGAIN during your reception. Two dresses mean that you get two completely different looks that will swipe your loved one off their feet.
More Versatile Photos
Changing your outfit throughout the day means that you won’t look the same in each photo. We know that you will look at these photos for the rest of your life, so why not make the most out of them, right?!
You Don’t Have To Choose Between Your Favourites
Having to pick two dresses for your wedding day means that you won’t have to choose between your two favourites. You might like a simple crepe gown but also love the beaded showstopper that just looks so good on you – You simply get to keep them both. YAY!
Twice The Fun
Although you might love the thought of walking down the aisle in a fitted crepe gown, dancing in a tight dress is a completely different story. Picking another dress for your reception will allow you to wear a sexy, and fitted gown at your ceremony, and then change into a more comfortable (but obviously still sexy) ball gown or less fitted option during your reception. That way you don’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable and you can just focus on dancing into the night…
Traditional But Modern
“I’m a pant kinda girl, but still want to wear a dress during my ceremony.” Buying two outfits for your special day means that you get to wear a dress during your ceremony, which you can then dump for a jumpsuit or other dress alternatives, right after. Nothing is worse than not feeling yourself on your big day. That way you still get to keep that traditional element of wearing a wedding dress,
I am on a low budget, how can I still create two looks for my wedding day?
Wedding dresses have come a long way. Designers are constantly trying to make their dresses as unique and versatile as possible. Thanks to designers like Pronovias and Zavana Couture, you can now easily get two looks in one, by purchasing only one gown. Adding an overskirt or jacket will give your dress or jumpsuit a completely different look.
Split your budget in half
There are AMAZING dresses, that don’t break the bank. Instead of going all out for your ceremony dress, why don’t you pick two dresses, that still fit in your budget? Designers like Stella York and Zavana Couture make amazing couture dresses, which do not only look glamorous but also provide that high quality feel. On top of that, you should always keep an eye out for our Sale Rail dresses and Trunk Shows to save even more.
Moral of the story: Although buying a second dress, can add a little more time and effort to your wedding planning, we absolutely think that you can never go wrong with multiple looks on your special day. It is a ‘Once In A Lifetime Experience’ – go all out!

For Charmaine & Daniel, their love shared is spoken immeasurably louder in actions, than words. It is these grand gestures that now form the fabric of their love story and the romance of their breathtaking Winter wedding.
The pair met casually one evening in West End, and when they realised they shared a mutual love of travelling, celebrating every occasion and fairy lights, the two really hit it off! Charmaine’s ‘I just knew’ moment came during a conference trip overseas.
“Dan was in FIFO work, which meant that when I had to travel to Japan for a conference (and holiday) he wasn’t going to be able to join me. But he actually quit his job to come and surprise me in Japan! And that was when I knew that what we had was legit.” Recalls Charmaine.
