And where to get them in Chattanooga and Surrounding Areas
Finding “the dress” has been something many brides have been dreaming of since before they were even engaged. There are so many options of style, designer and fit so how do you decide what dress is “the one”? What if you can’t decide? At CTC, we encourage you to do whatever you feel is best for you- even if that means having two dresses or outfits- or even more!
Why would I need two Dresses/Outfits?
Although it is not a requirement, having a ceremony outfit and different reception outfit is becoming more and more popular. Typically, the more detailed and extravagant gown is worn for the ceremony and the bride changes into a party approved outfit or gown for the reception to follow. The change of outfits can be something a bride does for comfort, for additional photos or just because she fell in love with multiple styles! If your wedding budget has room for an additional dress or reception outfit, we say go for it!
What are some common Second Dress/Outfit Styles?
If you decide to get a second outfit or dress, you are obviously free to decide what exactly you want personally. However, there are a few common styles that are gorgeous and make perfect sense for brides to choose.
We love a good jumpsuit and there are so many stylish options of various fabrics and cuts. You can opt for a two piece set, a satin one piece or anything in between! You can find plenty of options at local boutiques, online shops like Lulus or even some at local bridal shops!
Short Wedding Dress
If you are a bride who is planning to party the night away after your more traditional ceremony, a short wedding dress would be a perfect outfit change for you! You will be much less constricted and not have to worry at all about being able to get down as low as the DJ tells you to! Again, you can find these options in the same places as the beloved jumpsuits.
