When it comes to choosing your wedding dress, you usually have to order months in advance and what if you change your mind?

Well, now you can as a designer as created a reversible wedding dress to give you a choice of looks.

New Zealand based Trish Peng has made gowns with a single-coloured fabric on one side and a delicate lace pattern on the other.

There are 11 styles to choose from including a flowing strapless gown and a fitted v-neck dress.

It gives brides the option of waiting until the big day to decide on the final look or she can switch it up between the ceremony and the reception.

The styles are named after brides Trish has worked with and the whole idea came from a conversation with one client who was stuck between lace or a minimalist design.

It’s thought to be the first reversible wedding dress in the world – which created a few problems.

The only zipper she could find was a clunky one usually added to a sleeping bag so to make it fit in with a wedding dress, she had to hand stitch two zippers on each side of the gown.

Trish debuted the collection at New York Bridal Fashion Week earlier this month.

It’s not the first time her designs have made headlines – in 2016, she made a dress with a record-breaking 25m long train and in 2017, she made a dress out of flowers that only lived for three hours.
