Now- On your wedding day, opt out of the traditional long dress and wear a short organza dress with matching jacket by Kelsey Genna.
Later- The suit can still be worn with just a simple change of accessories. Or use the pieces separately- the jacket with a pair of denim jeans and the dress with sandals and straw hat.
Showcasing bridal dresses under $700.
