The attire for the wedding reception is in some cases different from the one worn at the ceremony, for both the couple and their attendants. Although it’s more customary for the invitees to change into something fancier for the nigh party, many newlyweds of today decide to wear two attires at their wedding. The bride usually chooses two dresses for her big day: one for the religious ceremony and one for the reception party. It may seem only natural for a bride to want something more decent and serious for the church and then change into something a bit more attractive or comfy.
Those who are having a cathedral wedding and a pompous gown with a long train and veil might want to wear something a bit more simplistic and ‘realistic” at the party. You won’t be able to move, dance and enjoy the wedding in an elaborated gown. This is the primary reason for choosing a second bridal dress for the reception. Only those who have a big wedding budget can afford to make this move. Nevertheless, we think that any woman can save some extra cash for an extra gown for the wedding party.
Giving the fact that this effect will only happen once in your life, you need to compromise on other wedding items and make everything in your power to give you the ideal attire of your dreams. It’s fun to juggle with two outfits as a bride. We know that women love this opportunity and they won’t miss it. If the wedding has two themes or two styles, the bride has more reasons to change into something different for the party. She can make her grand entrance at the reception wearing the ball gown dress she worn at the ceremony and after the first dance with her husband and a few guests’ visits at their tables she can change into her second outfit. This will offer you a lot of satisfaction.
Your invitees will get the chance to see you once again in your fabulous white church wedding dress. You can now out on the new outfit, one that is more commodious and practical. If you’re planning on dancing all night long, choose something simpler or at least smoother. The reception dress should be in the same tonality of the wedding. It must be formal and elegant, no matter how comfy the design it may be. You can change into a colorful gown if you want more diversity for your wedding. Choose a party cocktail dress, or go for a beauty contest dress. As for the wedding guests, they should be able to read the dress code for their attire in the wedding invitations.
