Convertible wedding dresses are becoming increasingly popular – after all, who doesn’t love the idea of getting two looks for the price of one? Today on Style this Gown, we’ll be taking a look at a strapless Amsale wedding dress with a detachable bow connected to a flowing train, available in ivory or Rosewater (as pictured).
Because the removable train allows for a reception change, we’ll be creating two different looks – a black tie style and a more casual reception outfit, allowing you to switch it up during the wedding day.
Now Styling: Marland by Amsale
Take a walk down the aisle in the Ariel Taub Aira Veil. This 30-inch veil will leave the dress’s bow and train on display as you walk down the aisle, the Swarovski detailing at the bottom of the veil catching light and adding a bit of sparkle to your look.
If you plan to keep the train detached for your walk down the aisle, go for a longer veil that will cascade down your back like the Jessica Veil from Ever by Happily Ever Borrowed.
Once the ceremony’s over and you’re officially a Mrs, clip your hair back and hit the dance floor with the Ever by Happily Ever Borrowed Mrs. Rhinestone Hair Clip.
For a traditional look for your walk down the aisle, adorn your neck with the Champagne Necklace by Haute Bride. This pendant is designed with clear and champagne color crystals, making it an ideal accessory whether you choose the Rosewater or ivory Amsale wedding dress.
Pair your Haute Bride necklace with their Golden Filigree Bracelet for a complimenting color palette of bling.
Round out your look with Haute Bride’s Moonlight Drop Earrings.
Because the Marland dress by Amsale can be converted into a cocktail dress, you can create an entirely new look with your jewelry for your reception (or shower, or wherever you choose to wear your dress). Put in some statement studs for a visual change guests will notice like these Universe Earrings by Maison Sabben.
Will you be out on the dance floor and waving your hands in the air like you just don’t care? Choose a bracelet that securely latches closed like the Meyer Bracelet from Sara Gabriel (or go for no bracelet at all) to avoid anything loose-hanging from getting caught on something or someone while dancing, hugging or moving through the crowd.
Wearing a knee-length dress means your shoes are on display for all to see. What we’re saying is, multiple shoe changes are an option, and they’re highly encouraged, especially if you’re looking for an excuse to buy new shoes. Dress it up with Kate Spade bridal bow sandals in pale vellum to accentuate the bow on the Amsale wedding dress train.
Hit the cocktail reception in Sanoura Heeled Sandals from JustFab, available in a variety of hues and patterns that allow you to match the Rosewater shade of the dress or go for a bold color statement.
We’re a sucker for a bridal jacket, and the Marland Amsale wedding dress is just begging to be paired with one. A cropped jacket look will pair well, especially if the back bow train is attached and can therefore stay on display. Rock a hand-painted bridal leather jacket for your wedding day and every day after.
