While all of Bachelor Nation's eyes are still trained on Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell to see if they're for real or not, former Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried's wedding planning is in full swing! With Des set to walk down the aisle this coming summer, of course her wedding dresses are in the works!
Yup, plural. What, you didn't see that coming? She is a bridal stylist, after all. And one of the biggest trends in the wedding industry as of late has been saying yes to more than one dress.
Des recently shared the details with Us ...
She is reportedly codesigning two dresses with label Maggie Sottero (known for feminine, figure-flattering gowns -- mine was a Maggie, love them!) for her big day. One will be a "timeless yet surprising" silhouette for the vows, and the other, for the reception, will be "1920s-inspired." J'adore!
Des gushes of the two unique styles:
I can't wait for Chris to see me in all the dresses!
Hmm, all? Not both? Maybe there's a surprise third or fourth in there somewhere!? Ha, wouldn't be surprising. And I would completely understand if that's the route Des wanted to go. While it may seem hard enough to pick just ONE dress, it can actually make perfect sense to build in a wardrobe change (or two!), depending on how your day flows. Maybe she's referring to a more casual dress she's designing for their rehearsal dinner -- or an outfit she'll change into as they head off on their honeymoon?

But even if it is just a ceremony dress and reception frock, I'm still a little jealous. The weight of the train on my wedding gown, even when bustled, was definitely noticeable and a bit restrictive on the dance floor. Thus, if I were to do it all again, I might have considered a second dress for the reception that was more dance floor-friendly.
In the end, though, it's all about how you feel and how much you love your dress -- or dresses. Sounds like Des is enamored by hers, and that's already a sign that her big day is shaping up to be a complete success!
How do you feel about the multiple-dress trend? Do you think it makes sense for Des to have two dresses?
