Why have outfit changes?

As the bride walks down the aisle, it's the first and last time most brides will get married, so taking advantage of that spotlight is a must.

Timed perfectly

One of the newest wedding trends is for brides to incorporate dress changes into their wedding day and wedding weekend festivities. Dress changes allow the bride to express her personal style and let her personality shine through. What's the perfect timing for a dress change, you ask? Here are just a few considerations:

  • Change out of your picture-perfect princess gown into a classic dress of your favorite color for the first dance or cake cutting.
  • At the after party, an outfit change into a short sequin dress signifies to guests that it is time to pop the bubbly and let the celebration continue.
  • A final change into a get-away dress for your grand exit gives you a fresh photo opportunity and makes leaving your wedding more eventful and memorable.

Weekend wedding

There are many other dress opportunities besides on the wedding day itself. The rehearsal dinner and day after brunch should not be forgotten. Wearing white dresses for each lets the bride sit on her bridal throne the entire weekend. Consider incorporating more creative and colorful styles such as sequins, suede and silk for your weekend ensembles. From backless and sexy to short and fun, finding a few dresses to change into during the festivities will keep your guests' heads turning and leave them remembering your impeccable style long after the wedding is over.
