Feel confident in your wedding day look with this timeless and effortless tank dress. The simple & flattering design lets you add your own unique touch. Our favorite part? This dress comes with a removable jacket, perfect if you’re looking for options. Wear the dress alone with minimal accessories for a foolproof casual style. Or, add the textured metallic jacket for some added warmth, coverage, and detail.

Every blushing bride needs a matching mom by her side. We love this blush-colored dress & jacket set. The timeless lace pattern of both pieces is adorned with scattered sequins that shine beautifully with every turn you take on the dance floor. Wear this knee-length dress with or without the jacket for two looks in one. Both styles also feature a scalloped hem to add interest to an otherwise simple design. Also available in the shades Wine & Mystic, perfect options to pair with any bridal party color palette.
