The stuff of which fairy tales are made! One of the most memorable elements of a wedding is the bride’s wedding gown. For many centuries, bridal gowns have been the subject of most little girl’s dreams and fantasies. Wedding dresses are usually opulent, grand and exquisitely elegant since ceremonies are set to be calm and dreamy. Receptions, on the other hand, are a whole different story. This is where the couple and their guests let loose and have a ball!
Brides have the opportunity to let their hair down, kick their heels off and enjoy their first night as a missus. Therefore, you have the option to have a quick transformation and change gowns. Depending on your bridal palette and preference, here are some examples of reception dresses you can go for:
Dainty and Sparkly
If you love embellished wedding dresses, you can take all the glitz to the after-party with this Jolie Bridal sparkle tulle dress. The bows and the slit make it a dainty piece without overpowering the silhouette, putting your feminine side on a pedestal. You can also go for something more eye-catching, like an A-line flow skirt Jolie Bridal gown, which features a plunging neckline and a high slit that might not pass for your ceremony gown, but ticks all the boxes of the perfect reception dress. Either way, the sparkling details make it an exciting piece for the evening’s festivities!
Sexy and Modern
Show some skin and curves with a modern take on your bridal dress. This ivory Berta Privee dress screams a modern queen who’s ready to party. It comes with a gorgeous V-plunge front neckline and is finished with the scallop lace edge. Berta’s signature illusion mesh is complemented with a soft falling fishtail skirt. The medium size train creates a striking entrance right after the quick dress change!
Boho and Fun
When you plan to dance the night away during the reception, take advantage of the music with a dress that flows with it! The flowy train and off the shoulder sleeves will move beautifully with every step you take, making it a glamorous dress fit to impress! If you have a beach, garden, or outdoor wedding, a dress like the Gigi Muse by Berta gown will give off festival vibes.
Romantic & Dreamy
Delicate and intricate details matter as much as your comfortability. Especially since you have booze and bites planned for the after-party, having a dress you can eat, drink, dance and simply move freely in makes all the difference. You can still keep it comfy without sacrificing the fairytale-like moment.
A romantic dress like the Berta Como or the Germaine Muse, both by Berta, stun with soft feminine details of mesh and lace, whilst giving off sultry elements. Any of these pieces will leave everyone starry-eyed. And as for you, the bride, you’ll be delighted at how the sheer and skin-baring details will feel smooth and easy to move in as you interact with your guests.
Sleek and Minimalist
Simple and straightforward brides will appreciate this elegant Jolie bridal dress. The backless feature and sleek silhouette make up for the minimal embellishments. With a pencil shape that flares at the bottom and a V-shape top with sleeves, your body becomes the highlight. The subtle details make the strongest impact with a glimmering belt, and a peek of tulle underneath the slit. This is a perfect second dress for indoor or classic weddings.
Sultry and Dramatic
Just because the vows have been uttered doesn’t mean the most memorable moments are over. Bring more surprises to your guests by changing from a theatrical bridal gown to an equally dramatically detailed one. The feathers on one shoulder and scattered over the hemline of this Berta evening dress will remind attendees that the party has just, in fact, begun. This lovely piece features narrow straps with a low scoop back neckline and medium-size train.
