One bride. Two looks. One dress.
Inspired by celebrities such as Poppy Delevingne, Ellie Goulding and Meghan Markle, having two wedding dress reveals, white for the ceremony and off-white for the reception, was one of this year's big wedding trends.
It makes sense given the incredible selection on offer these days: Sweetheart, princess, mermaid, fit-and-flair, modern, beaded, backless, pockets! The decisions are endless.
New Zealander luxury wedding dress designer, Trish Peng, would meet brides every day that couldn't settle on a singluar design. To combat this issue, she has created the world's first collection of reversible wedding dresses. The revolutionary collection debuted at New York Bridal Fashion Week earlier this month.

"The reversible dress idea came to life after one of my custom brides couldn't decide between a lace or plain dress, but she knew exactly what silhouette she wanted," said Trish.
There are 11 pieces in the line, each can be worn two unique ways - white on one side and a pastel pink lace overlay on the other. The dresses are easily switched between looks by hand-stiched side zip closures on both coloured sides.

"You simply flip it and reverse it, one for the ceremony, the other for the reception."
The innovative design is also a benefit to wedding boutiques, as they can show a bride many possible options in a single dress sample - plain, pink or the whole reversible structure.
