49 Awesome Mermaid Wedding Dress With Detachable Skirt

While convertible wedding dresses are nothing new, more and more designers are considering them when creating their spring and fall collections.

With the second dress becoming a serious “must have” for so many brides, it may be hard to justify the additional cost of purchasing two gowns. Brides that want to stay on budget should consider a wedding dress that either is 2 pieces or perhaps even a short to long gown that will look fabulous during both parts of her big day.

There are many different wedding gowns that can change from long to short, or short to long with a few snaps, pins, or even a zipper. The trick is knowing which type is right for you.

First, there is the all in one changeable wedding gown. This is a one piece gown that has a short hemline in the front and then flows into a longer length in the back.. Some of these silhouettes can actually have a formal look while others are more casual and would work very well as a beach wedding dress, garden wedding gown or casual wedding dress.

Next you have the 2 piece wedding gown that has a detachable skirt. This is usually accomplished when the skirt is designed as a wrap. Often times this is a ball gown that has a sash and then the skirt is attached to that right at the waist.

This is perhaps the easiest convertible wedding dress to wear as the bride simply ties and unties the skirt as she pleases. What lies underneath is a shorter version of the dress or sometimes a floor length sheath.

Following this style would be a skirt that detaches with snaps or a zipper at mid thigh or the knee. These are for fit and flare or mermaid silhouettes. When the skirt is attached the gown looks a bit more formal and is usually floor length. The train varies from a sweep to a semi-chapel length but is rarely longer than that.

Finally the last type would be a detachable train. This type of 2 piece ensemble can be found on many silhouettes from sheath to ball gown. Depending on the style, the train either snaps, hooks or is pinned onto the dress. The result is either a floor length dress underneath the train or a shorter gown that is more appropriate for the reception.

If you are a bride on a budget, consider a convertible wedding dress, you will have two looks for the price of one.
