Swapping your ceremony gown for a more dance-floor friendly option later in the evening, is becoming more common. However, if your budget won’t allow for a second dress then consider a dress with detachable elements to change up the look for late into the night. A removable skirt or train takes a bride from daytime princess to dancing queen. Other elements that can be easily changed or lost for an easy update
include sleeves, belts and bows.
