Choosing the perfect wedding dress is not always an easy task and brides who can’t decide which dress to choose are opting to buy two dresses. The first dress for the ceremony and the second dress for the reception. The first is typically more classic in silhouette and more conservative in style and the second “party” dress is for dancing the night away.
Buying two dresses can get expensive so why not buy one dress and get two looks? You may have seen the convertible bridesmaid dresses but what about a convertible wedding dress?
Many convertible wedding dresses have a removable skirts. That way you can have a more traditional length and silhouette for the ceremony and instead of bustling the dress you remove the bottom part of the dress to make it short!
Other convertible dresses have overskirts that can be removed at the waist to reveal a shorter dress!
Or the over skirt is attached at the waist and when removed reveals a tighter more slim version of the original dress.
As much as I like this idea I would warn you to be careful that the dress doesn’t look like it is convertible. No one should realize that you can remove the skirt or change the look of the dress until you show up to the reception and show everyone your new look!
What do you think about convertible wedding dresses? Would you wear one?
Happy Dress Hunting!
