Lovely Dresses to Wear to the Reception or After party

Choosing a beautiful wedding gown is a top priority on every bride’s list of to-do’s.

What happens when you can’t settle on one gown only? Or even more, when you just want to make sure you have a second dress on your Big Day (one that’s more comfortable, more casual, or plain and simple, different)?

You can wear a second wedding dress, of course – and a lot of brides settle on this idea. For instance, you could wear a long and elegant wedding dress for your wedding ceremony and for the main pictures, but you could wear something more casual for the reception – or even for the after party.

What are some of the dresses you could wear for your reception or after party? We have some inspiring suggestions for you – so read on and find out more.

  • A mini dress. Sexy and feminine, playful and yet still very much pretty, a white mini dress can take so many shapes! The little white dress can be made out of lace (if you want a romantic look), it can be a sexy camisole (very much in style right now), or it can simply be a simple, basic white dress, accessorized with statement jewelry.
  • A modern mid-calf dress. Looking for something a little classier, yet still very modern and sexy? A body-hugging dress can be a real statement in its own right! Depending on how daring you want to be, you can even opt for an off-the-shoulder design and/or a slit design to look sexy and confident. This kind of outfit is perfect for an after party held in an elegant location.
  • A pantsuit or a jumpsuit. Want to feel extra comfortable and emanate power and self-confidence? There’s no better way to do it than through a pantsuit or jumpsuit. There is a wide range of bridal pantsuits and jumpsuits available – and they look absolutely amazing! Just perfect for a modern woman who wants to feel empowered and comfy at the same time.
