You’ve found the perfect dress to walk down the aisle, and take the perfect photos in, but what about the rest of the night? Can you wobble, cupid shuffle, and drop it like it’s hot in your wedding dress? Many wedding dresses might make some of these moves a little uncomfortable which is why lots of brides are opting for a change in attire during the reception. You can choose to be introduced in a new dress at the beginning of the reception or you can change after dinner, the first dance, and cake cutting have all taken place.
Take a look at some reception dress inspiration below!

There are so many gorgeous dresses out there for any budget that could easily be a reception dress! The reception dress also gives you the opportunity to shop for another dress, so if you couldn’t bring your bridal party wedding dress shopping then consider taking them to help you say yes to a reception dress. Another trendy idea for switching from wedding dress to reception look is wedding dresses with detachable skirts, but that is a blog post for another time.
