There are two types of modern day brides out there; well, there are many types of brides but we are choosing to wrap their characteristics into, conventional and unconventional. However, what most modern brides, especially in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa and other parts of the world, have in common is the two or more dress culture. That means having a wedding ceremony dress as well as a reception dress.
Having a second dress is a fabulous idea! It is usually lighter and freer than your main wedding dress, allowing you the freedom to dance and move about with ease – but remember it is your wedding day, so try to be graceful through it all.
Functionality aside, other than your wedding day, what other moments in your life are you allowed to be as extravagant as you want, except you are a celebrity? A second dress allows you to show off your personality and style, just in case your wedding dress fails to drive home your panache.
If you are currently hunting for your second dress, you’re in luck as we’ve curated some stunning second dress options for your inspiration.
Here are 2019 approved second dress ideas for the two types of brides…
For the conventional bride
Once a bride makes a personal choice of having another dress, she needs to make sure that while the second outfit doesn’t totally usurp the first, it must also stand its own ground and going with something elegant is a sure way to slay. Your second dress can be in white, ivory or your favourite colour.
For the non-conforming bride
Non-conforming brides do things differently so for the bride who loves to be
a little extra, nothing predictable will work. You’d think that the second dress should simply be less formal than the first but for this bride, a second dress is a way to remind her spouse, in-laws and guests that she’s unconventional in more ways than one. From sexy to sophisticated to ethereal, here are 7 looks for the daring bride.
Style warning: the see-through dresses above are just for commercial purposes. They should be properly lined if you pick such a look for your second dress.
