Have you already thought of what you’d do with your bridal gown after the wedding? Some brides opt to keep their gowns as special mementos and maybe even pass them on for their future daughters to wear or repurpose someday. On the other hand, there are brides who want to make the most out of their dresses for more than just one day just like Jackie. When Jackie was thinking about what she wanted her bridal attire to be like, her first priority was functionality–a piece she can wear again and again for formal events.
“There was no specific wedding dress design that I particularly liked. I just knew what cut and fabric would work with my body type, and more importantly, I just knew how I wanted it to look and feel–elegant, simple, and modern,” says Jackie. This bride was open to the idea of wearing separates to achieve her goal of getting to wear the attire again. During her search, Jackie fell in love with an elegant white top with a train and a serpentine skirt in a beige shade from her designer’s collection. To make the outfit even more special, Jackie’s designer added a few more drapes to the top for an extra wow factor! Practical, modern, and gorgeous! How about you? Would you consider wearing separates for your big day? Get some inspiration from Jackie and Luigi’s wedding through these photos by Carlo Acetre Photography.
