Two Looks in One - Wedding Dresses to take you from Ceremony to Reception

We are love-loving the trend in wedding dresses offering you the ultimate in versatility and personality - two looks in one! Thanks to overskirts, detachable sleeves, and textured jackets, these modern bridal accessories can easily be added or removed to create a completely different look.

Imagine starting your day with a simple, elegant gown with a full skirt and then switch it revealing a slinky, fitted number when its time to dance the night away. Optional sleeves for the ceremony are a great option offering modesty and coverage but remove them later in the day and your look is fresh and minimal. The possibilities are endless! 

  • Add an overskirt and transform a fitted gown to a ballgown 
  • Try adding a little more coverage with a detachable sleeve 
  • Add drama with a cape
  • Dial up the personality with a jacket or shrug
  • Slip on a sultry pair of gloves
  • Consider a detachable belt, bow or wrap for a subtle change to your look

Here are just a few of our favorite two-in-one wedding dresses here at White Lily. Many of the accessories are available to style separately giving you creating freedom to mix and match a look that feels 100% you. To try these looks on and create your own dream wedding day look schedule your appointment today!
