The Reception Dress

luxeBrides today have so many options when it comes to choosing a gown, that some brides opt for two. A more formal wedding dress and the relatively new phenomenon of a reception dress.

What is a reception dress? Well, it can be anything that you want it to be. Some brides can’t decide on two completely different dream gowns. Maybe she is in love with a flowing tulle ball gown and a slinky fitted lace dress. The ball gown would be perfect for a church service and then she can change into the lace one for a more relaxed feel at the reception.


A reception dress is a great way to add some color into your wedding. Every bride dreams of a white dress on her special day but there are many amazing colors to choose from when it comes to bridal fashions. Changing into a stunning blue or blush dress for the dance is a fun way to show more of your personality on your wedding day.

The obvious choice for a reception dress is going from a long gown to a short one. This gives you more freedom to show off all those fancy dance moves you and your man have been practicing for the last few months. One slightly less thought of reason for a reception dress, but no less important is the inevitable bathroom break. You need an army of bridesmaids to help with all the layers and crinoline and corsets but with the freedom of a reception dress you can have a 5 minute break from all the revelry, alone!


At Luxe Bridal we have a selection of dresses that would be perfect! Little white dresses, gold sparkly sequined dresses and a few tea length gowns that would make you feel like the most beautiful bride at your reception, albeit a more comfortable one.
