2 Looks Are Better Than 1: Reception Dress Changes We Love!
We get it, wedding dresses are uncomfortable. They can be tight and heavy, so it makes sense why you would want to change into something a bit more comfortable so you can dance the night away at your reception. There are so many different types of dresses to change into for your reception so we compiled a list of some our favorite ideas for reception dresses.
Long Dress to Short Dress
This is a classic example of a beautiful transition from ceremony into reception. Having a short dress makes it easy to dance and move around your party without having to worry about your long dress getting in your way. This is also a great way to stay cool throughout the night. Some dresses, like the one shown in the photo above, have a short dress hidden under a detachable skirt to make the change quick and easy.
However, you can also find dresses such as this one to match your long dress, just simply in a shorter version.
Form Fitting Dresses
Form fitting dresses are an amazing way to show your figure and your personality. This style of reception dress is great if you like many different types of dress cuts since you can wear a more traditional ball gown for your ceremony and a tighter, more revealing dress for reception. These dresses are more lightweight making dancing a bit easier.
A lot of brides change their shoes during the reception, and this is a great way to be more comfortable while still enjoying your wedding dress. There are so many options for changing shoes as well! You can change into flats, flip-flops, or sneakers, whatever makes you most comfortable. If you are nervous about your dress being too long when you change your shoes, there are sneakers that have a small heel hidden in them so you can be comfortable while keeping the bottom of your dress clean.
Whatever option you choose for your reception change, the most important thing to remember is that it has to match you! Your personality and taste should be reflected in your look, just like everything else on your wedding day; otherwise, you might feel like you are living out someone else’s fantasy instead of your own.
