Sofia Vergara's Overskirt Wedding Gown Is A Gorgeous Trend Brides Should Follow — PHOTOS
Basically the biggest news over the weekend — other than the craziness at the American Music Awards — was Sofia Vergara's wedding. From the sheer amount of florals to the incredible cake, the big day was spectacular, and the wedding dress stole the show. Sofia Vergara's overskirt wedding gown is on trend, and the look doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.
Every year, trends emerge when it comes to wedding gowns, and depending on which Hollywood celebs are engaged and planning to marry, you may see them. For those who don't attend a ton of weddings or write about them — like yours truly — spotting a wedding dress trend isn't something that typically happens, but trust me when I tell you that overskirt wedding gowns are a big deal in wedding world. For good reason, too! The idea of an overskirt is that they allow a bride to essentially have two dress in one. The design is exactly what it sounds like it would be — a skirt that goes over a wedding gown. Whether they're tulle or satin, these babies are a big deal because a bride is able to embrace a long gown or even voluminous skirt and rock a short of fitted bottom underneath. Basically, they're chic and functional — like pockets but even better.
So fab, it needed it's own team.
Brides are no longer required to bustle their gowns in order to dance the night away at their receptions. There has been quite a boom of overskirt gowns with them appearing in crazy numbers during the 2015 bridal runway shows. Not all overskirts are removable, but regardless of whether or not they can be taken off, they do add an extra level of drama to a design without being overpowering. So what are some of the best overskirt designs out there? Other than Sofia Vergara's gorgeous overskirt gown, that is.
