Did you see former Miss USA, Nia Sanchez on 'Say Yes to the Dress
'? Or the 'Style Me Pretty
' blog featuring her amazing convertible gown? We did. And so did lots of local Brides looking to capture Nia Sanchez's stunning look.
We might not be able to offer you the exact same Pnina Tornai
gown that the former Miss USA wore, but Michelle's Bridal and Tuxedo
now offers other mix and match and convertible gowns by designers Allure Bridals
and Maggie Sottero
that will give our Brides unlimited options for a create-your-own-adventure style wedding gown.
Let's take a look at Nia's famous gown and similar options available from Michelle's Bridal and Tuxedo:

This gorgeous tulle skirt and low-cut, lacey bodice with a swooping back was the perfect combination for the former Miss USA's wedding ceremony.

Our Option #1:
Michelle's Bridal and Tuxedo is proud to now offer customizable gown options to help create those once-in-a-lifetime, personalized looks for our Brides. Like Nia Sanchez's gown, this Allure Bridal
gown is a two-piece, mix and match, bodice and skirt combo. The bodice features a nude illusion fabric with lace giving it that low-cut, see-through look on the front and back. The skirt shown here (above) is a tulle ballgown, with a satin trimmed waistband, which could easily be made fuller with a crinoline skirt, and jazzed up with a beaded belt to complete your Miss USA look-alike style.

Nia made a quick change for the reception and completely changed her style by simply switching to a different skirt.

Our Option #2:
Change it up! Allure's new mix and match bodice and skirt options means you can have it all. Want a full skirt for the wedding, but something more simple for the reception? Why not a ball gown for the wedding and a short skirt for the party? Many Brides are choosing a slimmer skirt for the reception, or choosing to switch up accessories, like adding a beaded belt, to make it a completely different party dress. Creating a custom wedding gown just became so easy!
