And Isn’t this fashion too costly for our bride? Chanfashion will review the “two wedding dress” trend to help you decide if it’s right for you.
The story of two wedding dresses
Bride changing bridal ensembles may seem like a recent trend, but it actually has a history that begins in America. Back in the 1930s, the concept «Going Away Dress» — This is an outfit in which the bride appeared in front of the guests to accept congratulations and hear best wishes, and then go on a honeymoon with the groom. As a rule, the Going Away Dress was a chic wedding suit of a skirt and bomber. For a modern continuation of this concept, many wedding designers today create “Cake Cutting Dresses”. Such dresses are most often short, light and playful, they are intended for the second half of the banquet, when the cake is cut and the dancing begins until morning. The typical cake-cutting dress is often much less expensive than the second wedding dress.
The bonus of the cake-cutting dress or the Going Away dress is that the names themselves tell you when it’s time for the bride to change her look.
But still, the ideal opportunity to change the wedding attire is the time before the banquet. After the ceremony — a small photo session with parents and loved ones, and then your guests are sent instead ofwhere beautiful tables, music, snacks and drinks await them. At this time, you can touch up your makeup and hair. Using the opportunity to freshen up and change into your second dress, you will turn your appearance at the banquet with your fiancé into an even brighter event and get a second portion of admiration, delight and incredible photos!
Why do brides choose two wedding dresses?
