Why Have Two Wedding Dresses?!

Haha! But really... Why do an outfit change at your wedding?

Changing wedding ensembles may seem like a recent trend, but it actually has a long history. As early as the 1930s, brides would change at the close of their reception into a “going away dress” for their grand exit.

Typically their going away dress would be some sort of chic bridal-inspired skirt and jacket suit set. I personally had an outfit change. Mine was so cool! All of the lace from my ceremony dress slipped off so just the silk was left.

It made it so much easier to move around in for my reception. And honestly, I love the way I looked and felt in it a little more than my traditional dress 😂

Are you doing an outfit change? Why?
