New York Bride & Co. is the premier bridal shop in Syracuse and the surrounding region. We are a full-service bridal salon committed to helping you find the perfect dress to wear on your special day. On occassion, we may even do too good of a job. A dilemma some brides are faced with in our store — due to the wide selection of gorgeous gowns we stock — is what to do when two different dresses both seem perfect.
With gowns like the one highlighted above, it’s an easy problem to have. Here are the details on that gorgeous ballgown:

Brides.com has some advice for ladies who are torn between two ideal wedding dress options.
What do you do when you have a “that’s the one” wedding dress moment…with more than one dress? For an increasing number of brides, the answer is, buy them both! The two wedding dress trend isn’t going away anytime soon, and we can understand why. (The chance to wear multiplegorgeous, sparkly dresses in the same evening? Yes, please!) But pulling off even one wedding look requires lots of planning. Going for two may double your fun, but does it also double the work — and your budget? We asked Cassandra Quinn, Corporate Manager of New York-based bridal salon Lovely Bride, for her tips on buying and wearing two wedding dresses.
Brides: Let’s talk money: How should you divvy up your budget when you want two dresses? Split your dress budget down the middle? Spend less on the reception dress?
Cassandra Quinn: Budget is so personal, there’s not a right answer to this question. It really just depends what you are looking for. I think people choose to have two dresses for a few different reasons: They may want to shoot the moon in terms of fullness or structure or have the longest train in the world, but they don’t want to haul around a major dress for their whole event; or the bride may be wearing her mother’s dress for the sentiment but also want to express her own unique take on bridal fashion; or there may just be two gowns she can’t decide between.
The reason a bride is buying her second dress will guide the budget. If she’s wearing her mom’s dress down the isle, she’s lucky because her first dress is essentially free (except for the tailoring) and she can spend her entire dress budget on the second look. Read more at Brides.com
Sottero and Midgley, style Cecilia: Layers of embroidered lace appliqués cascade over a layer of allover lace in this luxe A-line, featuring an illusion V-neck and V-back trimmed with beading. A scalloped hemline and accents of shimmering beads, pearls, and sequins evoke opulent glamour. Finished with crystal buttons and zipper closure. Available in sizes 0-28. Available colors: Ivory/Pewter Accent, Light Champagne/Pewter Accent (pictured).
Here’s another perspective on wearing multiple gowns on your wedding day. It takes a more cautious approach, warning against getting too carried away. Give it a read and see what you think.
Most brides who have two dresses will tell you that they wanted one big traditional poofy dress for the wedding ceremony, and something shorter and more manageable for partying all night long at their reception. Makes sense, I guess (I have trouble relating because I truly loved my gown and wouldn’t have wanted to switch). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having more than one wedding dress if you can afford to pay for it. But when I have brides that do three dress changes, I really start to wonder what they’re thinking and if they have any idea how much time changing dresses will suck out of their time enjoying their actual wedding reception.
