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.

Then shop our favorite reception-worthy dresses to get yourself in the mood to celebrate your big day.
