Versatile Dresses from Ceremony to Reception

Versatile Dresses from Ceremony to Reception

If you’ve been daydreaming about having two distinct bridal looks for your ceremony and your reception, you don’t necessarily have to find two different dresses to achieve your style goals. From overskirts to detachable sleeves and removable dramatic bow accessories, there are so many different ways to achieve the perfect versatile look within one bridal gown. To give you a little inspo, we’ve put together four of our favorite versatile wedding dresses to help you curate two unique looks for your special day below: 




Made for the bride that wears her heart on her sleeve, this dreamy and ethereal fit-to-flare wedding dress features detachable lace off-the-shoulder sleeves for the perfect two-in-one style. Leave them breathless as you walk down the aisle with the stunning sleeves, and then show off that flirty sweetheart neckline at your reception sans sleeves.





Got a penchant for the dramatic? This stunner of a bridal gown features a dramatic detachable cascading ball gown skirt perfect for making your grand entrance at your ceremony. When removed, the Chelsea gown is revealed to be sleek, smooth, and minimal —a great option if you’re craving a more minimal and modern look for your reception.





If you’re planning a wedding for the cooler months, this versatile ball gown wedding dress is a great option. We love how the high neckline and long sleeves exude a sense of timeless elegance and are completely detachable if you’d like to go sleeveless for your reception. Classic, dreamy, and romantic, this ethereal A-Line bridal gown is sure to make your loved one fall in love with you all over again.





Chic, minimal, and with the perfect touch of drama, the Sullivan gown is a match made in heaven for the bride with modern and minimal style sensibilities. Turn heads as you walk down the aisle with the stunning statement bow on the back of the skirt, and easily remove it to twirl the night away at your reception.
