Short Dresses For Your Wedding Reception
November 16, 2015 Wedding IDEAS, INSPIRATION AND INSIDER TIPS
Some brides choose to stay in the same dress throughout the duration of their ceremony and reception, but we love idea of choosing a short reception dressto change into once the party gets started!
Some concerns you may have are:
You won't get enough photos in your first wedding gown if you switch into another so quickly. However, there is no doubt in our minds that you will get enough photos in your first gown! The main photo opportunities of the day are your ceremony, wedding pictures after the ceremony (or before), and the first dance! If you are in your first gown for these moments then your first dress will be in majority of your wedding photos when you receive them from your photographer.
"You have one day to wear your wedding dress, and that's it", many brides express themselves in this way and that is quite accurate. Your wedding is only one day and your attire for that day usually adds up to be pretty expensive. This day is something that you are going to remember for the rest of your life and a day that you should feel completely comfortable at and enjoy to the fullest extent. That is why when brides say they don't want to buy a second dress for the sake of "getting good use out of" their first dress we believe any amount of time you wear your dress is great use! You can also not have to worry about additional costs of bustling your train if you do a quick change into a second dress. Not to mention, having a second dress is so much fun and will make you feel like a celebrity when you go into the dressing room to do your outfit change.
For that reason, there is no way you will not stand out at your reception even if you decide to change into a short/less formal dress for the duration of your wedding. You must not forget that this is your day, and all eyes will be on you no matter what you are wearing. The options for a second reception wedding dress are endless and can be just as extravagant as a first wedding dress.

This short dress even features a satin couture band at the waist with a bow, something unique and flirty! Oh, and we can't forget the pockets at the side seams. Who doesn't love the idea of having pockets on their wedding night?

For a more formal approach to a reception wedding dress, style T703 combines edgy with traditional.
