Two Bridal Dresses or Two Bridal Looks?

by | Mar 31, 2021 | Bridal

Meghan Markle had two looks on her wedding day!  So did Kate Upton and Serena Williams! Having two wedding day looks is a dream of many brides.  Does that mean a bride needs to buy two dresses??  Have two separate fittings? Spend twice as much as budgeted? Absolutely not! 

With the guidance of one of our professional bridal consultants, you can pull off two completely different looks with a single dress along with a few fresh and creative accessories. Transform a sexy, figure hugging dress into a princess fairytale gown! A flowing overskirt, removable sleeves, a cape or cathedral veil can create a classic look for your vows. Then, removing these layers of accessories and adding some jewelry pieces, a sash and maybe a new pair of shoes can convert you from romantic to modern, evening elegance!

An example of this type of transformation from traditional romance to sleek sheath is in the versatility of Hellena from couture designer, Abella. The straps can slide from a sweet off the shoulder look to an alluring soft portrait design. The detachable full skirt can be removed to reveal a fitted gown that flatters your curves.

Have twice as much fun with the two looks with your fiance! Mix it up! Have your “first look” in the sexy, modern version! Then, save your full “classic vow ensemble” for the walk down the aisle. Imagine his tears and delight when he realizes you are walking down the aisle as a traditional romantic bride. We call this unexpected surprise the Two First Looks! Who deserves to enjoy your two looks more than your new husband?
