3 Way switch question

Wiring up sconce lighting with a pair of 3 way switches. Since i want to be able to "dim" the lights, do i have to use (2) switches that have the dimmer feature or do i simply use (1) switch with the dimmer feature and the other switch without the dimmer feature?

1 3-way dimmer switch with 1 normal 3-way will work

If you want to be able to dim (or more importantly, undim!) from either switch, you can buy special dimmer switches that can be dimmed from either switch, but they cost more.

Thanks for your response. The single dimmer switch will work just fine for my application.
