Change up your look from ceremony to reception by getting a second dress for your wedding, comfortable enough for the night of dancing. Wedding reception dresses are an increasingly popular option for brides if a ceremony is held in a very traditional conservative setting, or if they just want to wear something more party-ready after the formal part is over. Madame Bridal introduces a selection of little white dresses and bridal after party looks, hoping to make shopping for a bride reception dress that perfectly showcases your personal style easy and enjoyable experience.
For every bride wedding is a unique opportunity to go all out on her style and wear a dress that lives up to all she has ever dreamed it would be. Whether it is an exquisite ball gown, or a tightly fitting mermaid dress, it should be the look that will leave everyone attending your wedding speechless. But let’s be honest, even though they are gorgeous, wedding dresses are not the most comfortable outfit in the world. And if you are a bride that would like to dance the night away (it’s your party after all) that might be the problem. That doesn’t mean you should compromise on your dream dress. After the ceremony you can just slip into a reception dress that is lighter, cooler, shorter and movable for all the mingling.
The trend of switching up atraditional wedding gown for a second, more relaxed look has become a mainstay in the wardrobe of a modern bride. There is more than a few good reasons for buying a second dress for your wedding. Maybe your ceremony venue has got a strict dress code, but you plan to change into something sexier for the reception. Maybe you have envisioned an extravagant look for exchanging vows, such as a long chapel train, or layers on layers of tulle in your skirt and you need something more comfortable for greeting your guests afterwards. If you plan to spend a lot of time on the dancefloor, a shorter or lighter dress will allow you to move comfortably throughout the night. And of course, you wouldn’t risk messing up your pretty wedding gown or staining it with all the food and wine around.
