Let’s Talk About The Reception Dress: Choosing A Fitting Option + 15 Inspiring Samples

There’s no clear history on what started the reception dress frenzy but if we could take a guess, it was more about comfort than glam. However, the reverse is the case right now. As a modern bride, one of the high points of your wedding day is no doubt the outfit changes.

The average bride can go anywhere from 1-2 changes, while celebrities usually pull off as many as they choose. This major trend has certainly been accepted as the norm and many attendees look forward to the moment where the bride has to change.

If you happen to be a contemporary bride looking for the right reception dress ideas then you are in luck. We’ve curated a good amount of dress inspirations that covers some of the major personalities. The looks here are displayed based on character and preference.

Check out 15 reception dress ideas to fit your unique personality…

#1. The shimmering bride

There are many brides who want to try something with a little more sparkle, but they don’t want to sacrifice their comfort. We’ve found that beaded lace and shimmers make for the perfect choice. The fabrics aren’t extremely lightweight and that’s why the majority of the styles are created in such a way that the bride finds it easy to walk in. In all, you can never go wrong with a little shimmer and a lot of shine, especially on your wedding day. So, if you are the kind of bride who loves attention, this has your name on it.

#2. The spunk-y bride

Moving on from all that sparkle, we bring you a collection that offers just the right amount of glam and edge. This look is perfect for you if you’re the kind of bride that enjoys an unexpected style statement. High fashion, beaded work, exaggerated layering, voluminous gowns, high 3D lace, 3D flower features and others separate this number from the pack. These looks are to inspire that bride who wants to make sure that she makes a big splash on her big day.

#3. The daring bride

This is where unconventional brides get off. It’s common practice to wear a long voluminous dress, or at least stick to a dress, but that’s not what you want right? As a non-conformist bride, it is important that your selection represents you whether you choose to wear sneakers or you’d rather do a jumpsuit as a reception “dress”. Length is also an important part since going short is an option you don’t see every day.
