Many brides struggle when it comes time to choose a silhouette. They want to look sweet and angelic during the ceremony but want to be a bombshell at the reception. Choosing two dresses to achieve these different looks may seem tempting but it can be a pricy option. So how do you find a gown that embodies both your sweet and sexy sides while still staying on budget? Keep reading to discover our favorite ways!
The answer is simple: overskirts. We saw this trend hit the runways recently and ever since we’ve been in love. Dresses that typically work best with overskirts are sheaths and fitted gowns, like fit and flares.
Designers like Catherine Deane, Jenny Yoo, and Theia have taken this trend and perfected it. Catherine Deane has a beautiful line of overskirts in an array of fabrics from whimsical tulle to dreamy chiffon. These gorgeous skirts can be added to many of her gowns!
Jenny Yoo’s London dress is one that is particularly swoon worthy. The subtle fit and flare style is ideal for a bride wanting to give off a classic sexy vibe. This gown pairs with the romantic London overskirt which is constructed from soft tulle and adorned with delicate lace appliqués. Together, the London dress and overskirt create a sweet and feminine look. This overskirt would also be a stunning addition to a modern sheath dress. It’s the perfect option for a bride seeking a contemporary look with a touch of whimsy.
Theia also showcases this trend with a show stopping dress by the name of Elsa. This fully beaded gown is truly the definition of glamour. Elsa’s beaded art nouveau inspired design is strategically placed to enhance a woman’s curves. The silk organza Elsa overskirt pairs with it to create a romantic A-line silhouette.
Another option for brides wanting to change up their look between the ceremony and reception is accessories. Brides can opt to go from veil or floral crown for the ceremony to sparkly sash or large drop earring for the reception. Accessories are a fun and easy way to customize your look.
When it come to wedding day style every bride has their own. There are endless ways to make your dress uniquely you and to have it show off all aspects of your one of a kind personality. Comment below your favorite way to change up a bridal look!
