Be Oscar-worthy at Your Wedding with a Wardrobe Change

January 20, 2010 at 4:02 pm 3 comments


“Dumpy economy. Schmumpy economy.”  Not even an economic crisis can prevent this dual dress, wedding trend from booming.  With a growing number of brides saying “Yes!” to not one, but two (sometimes even three) dresses, it seems as though future Mrs. everywhere deserve a pat on the back for causing the most fashionable, most fabulous, economic stimulus ever!

But who’s to thank for this diva-riffic duality??  You guessed it… celebutantes.  Like so many trends, we have our famed sisters to thank for trickling this treat down to the rest of us.  Everyone from Britney and Christina to Avril and most recently, Khloe Kardashian-Odom pulled the  showed off  but they aren’t the only ones.  This trend can be seen everywhere!

And it didn’t begin, nor will it end with celebrities.  In fact, it’s been a part of many bridal cultures for centuries.  Having multiple dresses has been associated with a number of different cultures and ethnic groups around the world.  Especially enriched in East Indian and Asian cultures, many brides of certain heritages will wear traditional garb during the ceremony and switch it up at the reception to really let loose… which I consider the main reason behind any girl’s decision to bait ‘n’ switch.

It’s about being young and having fun!  While many wedding ceremonies are viewed as traditional and sacred, their accompanying receptions are a time to PARRRTAAAY!  Hence why so many wardrobe changing brides tend to wear more formal, fairy tale or traditional gowns during the ceremony, and jazz it up at the reception!

While this wasn’t in my budget, I soooo encourage any bride-to-be who can afford it, to be like Nike and “just do it!”  I mean seriously, it’s like having the most fun dress up day… twice!

And finally, for your viewing pleasure… by merging photos from Google Images, I’m proud to present some of my favorite celebrity, wedding wardrobe switches!

From Vera to Velour, Khloe Kardashian was all kinds of FaBuLoUs!!

Christina Aguilera transformed from "Oh Wow!" to "Ow Ow!" on her wedding day!

Even though she didn't find her "happily ever after," Britney still rocked out both her wedding dresses!

Our favorite Bachelorette, Trista, also pulled the 'ole switch-a-roo!

Avril went from glowing bride to ready to rock'n'roll!

    LOVE this trend! There are beautiful ‘little white dresses’ from Alfred Angelo and more that are perfect for the reception. It can be difficult grooving with a ball gown on!
