The History of Two Wedding Dresses
Changing wedding ensembles may seem like a recent trend, but it actually has a long history in the modern American wedding. As early as the 1930’s, brides would change at the close of their reception into a “Going Away Dress” for their grand exit, where guests would wish them well as they headed off to their honeymoon. Typically their Going Away Dress would be some sort of chic bridal-inspired skirt and jacket suit set. For a modern take on this concept, many bridal designers today are creating ”Cake Cutting Dresses” for brides who want to switch things up. Cake Cutting Dresses tend to be fun, shorter frocks which are meant to be worn towards the close of the reception when you cut the cake and dance until the end of the night. The typical Cake Cutting Dress is often much less expensive than a second wedding gown and could even be something you consider actually wearing again!
The bonus of the Cake Cutting Dress or the Going Away Dress is that the names themselves clue you into when you should change from your formal wedding dress to the other. Otherwise, it could be less obvious, leaving brides uncertain of the best time to switch looks. A good rule of thumb for when to change from your wedding dress to your second dress is during the cocktail hour, assuming you’ve had some time for portraits in your ceremony gown. While your guests are mixing and mingling, you can take time to change, touch up your makeup, and possibly even get your hair restyled before reappearing at the reception. Taking this time to refresh and change into your second dress gives you a second opportunity to WOW your guests when you reemerge to have your first dance at the reception. It’s your moment, might as well make it count, right? Discover more exciting bridal trends, compliments of The Spruce

Maybe you grew up fantasizing over your dream wedding dress, but as you’ve grown older and seen the wonders a jumpsuit can do for your legs, you know a one-piece will make you feel like a rockstar. Still, take the chance to step back for a second to ask yourself, “Ten years from now, will I look back at my wedding photos and wish I’d worn a dress?” Or, “Will I miss the experience of trying on glamorous ball gowns and slinky sheaths?” The good news is you can try on as many dresses as you want and still choose a jumpsuit. Plus, plenty of jumpsuits and pantsuits come with trains, capes and lace to give you the same bridal vibes as their dress counterparts. But it’s probably still worth asking yourself if you’ll feel like something’s missing if you don’t say your vows in a wedding dress. It’s possible you wear jumpsuits so often wearing another one on your day won’t feel extra special—but then again, maybe only a sleek pantsuit can give you that wow factor. There’s no right or wrong answer—do what feels right for you. Discover more bridal fashion tips and tricks, compliments of The Knot
