This Year’s Wedding Dresses with Multiple Looks

One of bridal’s hottest trends for the upcoming season is the convertible wedding dress! With brides opting for multiple wedding day looks, convertible two-in-one wedding dresses make their vision a reality that can be achieved with ease and style. Continue reading to learn more about designer wedding dresses with multiple looks available at True Society. 

What is a Convertible Wedding Dress? 

Convertible wedding dresses offer two looks in one, for the bride who wants the option to have multiple looks on their big day. This change may involve detachable wedding dress overskirts, jackets, capes, sleeves and so much more. 

What are the Benefits of Wearing a Convertible Wedding Dress? 

There are so many wonderful reasons to wear a convertible wedding dress! They offer brides the option of multiple looks without the fuss of completely changing into a brand-new dress. Your wedding day will fly by, so you won’t want to waste precious time!  

Convertible wedding dresses can be cost-effective, as well. Detachable elements or accessories may cost less than buying an entirely new dress; for example, if a bride wants to be more modest during their ceremony—pieces like jackets, overskirts and capes can provide coverage that can be removed later for the reception. 

What Dresses Have Different Looks for the Reception and the Ceremony? 

All wedding dress silhouettes can transform from the ceremony to the reception, but there are common combinations. One of the most popular options is a fitted wedding dress paired with a detachable skirt. This gives the bride both a regal ballgown and a sexy fitted look. Another common combination is a strapless gown paired with a jacket or detachable sleeves.

How Should Brides Style the Different Looks of Detachable Wedding Dresses? 

Styling a convertible wedding dress is similar to styling any other wedding gown. The key is to consider your gown’s details, silhouette and fabric when choosing your wedding dress accessories. Pieces like capes and jackets will affect the type of jewelry you wear, as a necklace may not work.  

You can always change your accessories as you transform your look from the ceremony to the reception. The good news is that True Society offers a wide range of bridal accessories that can help complement your bridal gown! Our True Crew can’t wait to help you accessorize your dream wedding dress

Which Wedding Dress Silhouettes Pair Best with Overskirts?

Whether you want a subtle change in your look or a grand reveal, a convertible wedding dress may be the right option for you!
