Hung Le and Tam Nguyen
Wedding date: July 27, 2013.
Venue: Carlson Towers Rotunda, Minnetonka.

The only thing better than finding your perfect wedding dress is finding four. The trend of wearing multiple dresses to tie the knot has been growing for years. But Tam Nguyen, 31, took it to a new level last summer when she changed into four — count them, four — dresses during her wedding day with Hung Le, 32. Even the bridesmaids and groomsmen had an outfit change.

“I love dresses, so my wedding was the perfect opportunity to wear as many as I had time to change,” Nguyen said. The bride wore a traditional white wedding gown from Macy’s, but changed into others in shades of blue to reflect her love of the ocean. “I had five dresses, but I only had time to wear four,” she said. “And I wore a total of four pairs of shoes — another one of my passions!”
