Many brides today choose two wedding dresses: one for the ceremony and the second for the reception and party – we all know that not every dress allows to dance comfortably but having two gowns may be too expensive. Some of the brides just can’t choose between various bridal styles because they are damn beautiful and don’t know what to do. Don’t worry, girls, I have a brilliant solution – a convertible wedding dress! This is a dress that features two different styles, usually a sheath or a short wedding dress with an overskirt that turns it into a ballgown or just an A-line dress. Buying such a dress will save your budget and you’ll have two different gowns for the best day of your life. Ready to see the examples? Here they are!
Sheath/Mermaid Wedding Dresses With An Overskirt
A sheath or a mermaid wedding dress will highlight your curves, and an overskirt or a detachable skirt is a nice idea for a ceremony, especially a church one. It may be a lace or plain dress, an embroidered or beaded one, or both, with different types or necklines. As for the skirt – it’s often a tulle overskirt that makes the real one not seen, so everyone thinks that you are wearing a ballgown or an A-line gown. One more idea is to use the original skirt as a part and add a detachable skirt, so the dress looks more impressive and layered. Sometimes the overskirt or a detachable skirt is made matching to the dress, so nobody will understand that it’s a detachable piece. After the ceremony you can remove it and strike everyone in your new dress. There are even options to cover the whole dress – not only the skirt, so you’ll really have two different gowns!
Short Wedding Dresses With An Overskirt
If you like short wedding dresses but want something more formal for the ceremony, opt for a short wedding gown with an overskirt. These are usually chic lace dresses with different necklines and a tulle or just flowing detachable skirt – it may cover you so that nobody will guess that the dress is short. Another way to do it is to rock an overskirt with a slit, which will show off your legs and maybe partly the real skirt. Modern designers also offer sheer overskirts that show off your legs and your short dress but become a fashionable touch with pockets, beading and so on and fit a modest ceremony.
