For such a long time, brides chose one dress that they basically wore from sunup to sundown on their wedding day. Then the second dress came along, and everything changed. Suddenly, they didn’t have to wear the same big puffy gown that worked strolling down an aisle to get down with their friends. There was freedom in a little white dress—or jumpsuit—that meant comfort and expression. The first dress could be traditional—with a veil and a train. And the second dress could be whimsical and stylish. And both could co-exist in the same wedding. The perfect marriage.
The Second Act
Short wedding dresses and jumpsuits for party-ready second looks, intimate weddings, and free-spirited elopements are all the rage.
