Are you torn between a gorgeous full length wedding gown for your ceremony and a fun shorter style for your reception? Or perhaps you love the two dress trend but cannot afford to purchase two special wedding gowns for your big day? Then the convertible wedding gown might be perfect for you!It is certainly a great way to have your cake and eat it too!
Recently looking at a study, I found that weddings cost on average $20,000. Now that is bit of an investment! Is it worth investing this kind of money on a wedding? You bet you that it is!
However, even though weddings can cost $20,000 on average to put together, why not find savings?
All in all, the convertible wedding gown has a lot of potential. They are not yet widely available, but a few designers are starting to offer them in their collections (I first learned of them when I saw a David Tutera breakaway gown on "My Fair Wedding"). If you are looking for a bridal gown that offers two looks for the price of one, the convertible gown might be exactly what you desire.
The convertible gown is the updated version of the detachable train gowns which were so popular in the 1960s. The '60s gowns were generally column or A-line silhouettes which featured long trains flowing from either the waist or just below the shoulder (otherwise known as a Watteau train). After the ceremony, instead of bustling the train, it was simply unhooked from the gown, leaving a floor length dress which was the same length all the way around. The difference with the modern take on this older style is that when the lower portion of the skirt is removed, it leaves a dress which is shorter than floor length, usually tea length or to the knee.
