Different Wedding Dresses for Your Ceremony and Reception

Different Wedding Dresses for Your Ceremony and Reception

In recent years, many brides have been gravitating towards the practice of buying two separate wedding dresses for their special day: one to wear at the ceremony, and then another for the reception. This started as a way for brides to change into a more comfortable dress following the formalities of their ceremony so that they could dance the night away at their reception more freely. Whether this sounds like you, or if you just love a good costume change, here are some of our favorite second wedding dresses perfect for your reception:

44080 by Justin Alexander



This gorgeous bridal ball gown by Justin Alexander offers just the right amount of support with its thick straps, plenty of mobility in its full skirt, and features quite a rare find in wedding dresses: pockets! With this gown, you can keep your favorite lip gloss handy to reapply when needed, as well as your phone readily available for selfies throughout your reception.


Wanda by Rebecca Ingram



This lovely A-line wedding dress by Rebecca Ingram features a fluttering skirt and tiny cap sleeves joined together by a sheer, illusion mesh neckline. This design discreetly saves you from your dress shimmying out of place, and creates an absolutely gorgeous frame around your bust!


Gibson by Sottero and Midgley



This bridal pantsuit by Sottero and Midgley offers two looks in one: a detachable tulle skirt maintains the classic bridal dress aesthetic, but can be removed to reveal floor-length pants. Stylish, comfortable, and gives you a second look without needing to actually buy two dresses.
