Here's Why Brides Buy a Second Wedding Dress
If you’ve gone through the process of finding the perfect wedding dress, then you probably know the feeling of when that dress simply speaks to you. However, what happens if you’re looking not for one, but two dresses that give you that feeling? Today, many brides are looking for multiple dresses for their big day.
Why? Just ask Lily Kaizer, the owner of luxury vintage bridal boutique Happy Isles in Los Angeles, who has clients asking for dresses in addition to their wedding gowns. “My number one request at the salon is a fabulous after-party dress. Anything short with feathers, sequins, fringe, or beads is in demand at the moment,” she says.
If you’re considering choosing a second dress for your wedding but need a little extra convincing, see what Kaizer has to say about why stylish brides are buying second dresses. Then shop our favorite reception-worthy dresses to get yourself in the mood to celebrate your big day.

It's a Necessity
Kaizer feels that a second dress is becoming more of a necessity these days. “So often brides are choosing designs for the main event that are gorgeous but cumbersome,” she explains
You'll Be More Comfortable
“Brides want to be able to ‘get down’ all night long. So something shorter and more comfortable is a must,” she says.
Get Yourself Into a Party Mood
“I always say that changing into a second party look sets the tone for the rest of the night,” Kaizer mentions. It lets your guests know that you’re ready to celebrate!
