When planning a wedding, brides are always looking for ways to make their special day more original and out of the box. A convertible dress such as this is a fun twist to add to your bridal party. Your bridesmaids can wear the dress as a halter, one shoulder, strapless, or half sleeve, and more. Each bridesmaid can wear the same color convertible dress, or switch it up to match your wedding colors. The material varies form satin or to your traditional taffeta dress.
