Consider Capes

For brides not into wedding veils, a bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative.The sleek modern look of full length capes or capelets is grand yet understated. Plus you can whisk it away mid-way through your wedding as a reception outfit change.

Pant Suits and Jumpsuits 

New York wedding dresses don't all have to be dresses. Pantsuits and jumpsuits are sweet, elegant and chic, plus they are comfortable too. Perfect for after parties, rehearsal dinners, dress changes and naturally even for walking down the aisle.

Mini Frocks

Short and flirty yet sophisticated party frocks are going nowhere for the reception. Show some leg on your wedding day while still looking definitely bridal. Enter the after party mini gown for a fashion forward aesthetic. Rather than creating dresses brides can wear only once, bridal designers offering options that can be worn long after the big day.
