As an extension of ourÂ âAsk the ExpertsâÂ
blog series, we have created a new blog category called âAsk Bethâ.Â Â The White Dress by the shore owner and stylist,Â Beth ChapmanÂ
will answer any weddingÂ fashion related questions you may have.
For our third installment of this series we choose to answer a question that is quite common amongst the modern bride relating to choosing between two shapes of gowns.
I can't decide between a classic A-Line style (that I know my family will love) and a sleeker fit to flare style (that I know my fiancÃ© will adore), which one should I choose?! Thank you for your help! -Lauren"
Here is Bethâs response:
Why not wear both!? Now, I don'tÂ necessarilyÂ mean choosing two separate gowns, but rather utilizing the addition of a detachable tulle skirt. Below we have paired a handful of beautiful fitted styles from Connecticut based designer, Modern Trousseau with the separate tulle skirt from the same designer.Â With the addition of the skirt, the look is totally transformed. As the skirt is tulle, it pairs beautifully with so many different fabrications. Whether you want lace, beading or another interesting texture, this simple addition makes your look only that much more stunning. You get the best of both worlds- a beautiful and classic A-line to wear at the ceremony to please your family and a sophisticated fit-to-flare style for the reception to WOW your husband, all without having toÂ change out of your wedding gown!
