Brides, we know the struggle is real when it comes to wedding dress shopping. There are so many gorgeous options, so many you'd love to see yourself in. This one is perfect for the ceremony. That one would look amazing on the dance floor. But oh, what about this one with the sequins?! What is a bride-to-be to do?
Two words: second look. Maybe you've heard about brides purchasing two dresses for the big day: one for the ceremony and one for the reception. This option is great for brides who just can't pick one and for those who want to surprise their guests with a stunning second bridal outfit.
Convertible Wedding Dresses
The main thing to keep in mind when choosing two wedding outfits is to keep them different enough from each other that people actually notice you've changed. An easy way to do that is to pick out a convertible wedding gown, like our backless mermaid lace wedding dress with detachable skirt or the convertible long sleeve lace wedding dress with open back. Or you might prefer dressing up with our two piece convertible ball gown for the ceremony, which then transforms into a more minimalist sheath dress for the reception.
Colored Wedding Dresses
Another easy way to create a stunning second look is to wear color. Slip into something in a sweet blush or blue, like this vintage inspired blue tea length dress with sleeves or this pretty pink strapless tea length dress. If you're feeling particularly bold, how about making your reception entrance in a classic Hollywood gown in siren red or in a sexy little number like this blue dress with plunging neckline and open T-back. Ooh la la!
Festive and Fun Wedding Dresses
If you want to surprise your guests with a fun and festive second look, consider a dress with feathers, fringe, ruffles, or sequins. You'll want to twirl in a ruffle ball gown adorned with beads and sparkle in a jeweled ballerina-inspired tea length dress.
If you weren't convinced before that you should go for a second bridal look, we bet you're feeling it more now. And the great thing about finding both your looks here at ieie Bridal is that all of our dresses are so affordable that you won't break your wedding budget. It's a win-win!
