Transcript for I Do, Again: More Couples Opting for Multiple Ceremonies
Well, I don't think I'm going to be eating this before a wedding story, right? We have the whole workout for weddings. Now, you're on wedding beat, linsey. One of the hottest trends when it comes to weddings -- I'm acting like this is my microphone. I can't notice that. I'm sorry. We're talking about multiple ceremonies. More and more couples are deciding to tie the knot, not just two or three times, to the same person. Linsey with more on this story. Reporter: They will be saying I do, I do, I still do. Whether it's to accommodate religions or ceremony styles. Increasing number of couples are saying more than one set of i do. For nearly-weds, planning for their one, big day, it's difficult enough from picking the perfect dress, to finding a venue to balancing a budget. Imagine planning for three. This is the dress that I wore to the catholic ceremony. Reporter: This woman needed four wedding dresses for three, different wedding ceremonies at three different venues. Two in california. And one in new jersey. We're doing three wedding dresses? We are. Reporter: With a dress budget of $15,000, she said yes to three of the four dresses on tlc's show "say yes to the dress." Are you saying yes to dress number one? Yes. Are you saying yes to dress number two? Yes. Are you saying yes to dress number three? Yes. Reporter: And as it turns out, ringing in your marriage more than once is a growing phenomenon. Often times, families with very different ideas of what a wedding should look like, a couple has to decide should I do it my way or do another wedding? Reporter: Chris popped the question last march. But they quickly learned weddings aren't just about what the bride and groom want. I never thought it was going to be three ceremonies. Bucause of all the different wants of people, it ended up just naturally occurring like that. Reporter: Were you overwhelmed of the idea of three weddings? Oh, yeah. I just went withit. Reporter: With different cultural and religious backgrounds, their east meets west tri wedding included a traditional hindu ceremony, a church wedding and an intimate wedding at a vineyard. For a lot of bride and grooms, doubling or tripling the planning can mean double or triple the headache. There's a lot of pressure. You have to have the ability to handle stress. Reporter: Something to consider for those thinking about making multiple trips down the aisle. If you have more than one wedding, no matter how you slice and dice it, you're going to end up spending more money. You're going to want to budget for that. Reporter: As for chris and monisha, they managed to tie the knot three time, while staying weddings is a bit much. It's an extravagant thing to do. But it was done to make everybody in our family happy. And we accomplished that. Reporter: Giving a whole new meaning to three times is a charm. More than 50% of all -- so, having multiple weddings, especially to accommodate different cultural backgrounds is a trend likely to continue. But just one is exhausting and expensive. Those with means can if they like. But that's a lot of celebrations. We ait, linsey. Coming up next, salma hayek
