The beauty of Reem Acra's Spring 2013 collection is that she designed this group of wedding dresses with the idea that brides would transform the gowns to make them their own. (She even told us so, in our behind-the-runway interview during Bridal Fashion Week.) This embroidered tulle minidress is the perfect example of how—the style can be worn with or without the tulle peplum skirt embellished with a constellation of pearls and crystals. We say wear the skirt during your ceremony for maximum demurity, then whip it off at the reception to get things started out on the dance floor. But, hey, it's really up to you!
