Whilst some brides like to wear their wedding dress for the whole wedding day, other brides may prefer to change into a secondary gown for the reception. This is a common theme at royal weddings, as Kate Middleton, Megan Markle and Princess Eugenie all changed into another dress. If you’re looking for a reception dress, here are a few ideas to consider:

Comfort

Wedding dresses are stunning, but your dream dress may not be the most comfortable item of clothing to wear for a full day. You might like to opt for a looser fabric for your reception gown, such as a flowing bohemian style. Alternatively, jumpsuits are ultimate comfort, and look great when teamed with strappy sandals.

Colour

Switching gowns for your wedding reception is the perfect opportunity to inject a splash of colour into your day. Dare to be bold with your shades, and you may even like to throw a nod to your cultural background with your choice of patterns and prints.

Style

Some brides use the chance to change dresses to showcase a second traditional wedding dress in a very different style. If you were torn between a tea length dress and a full skirt, ballgown-style dress, why choose between them? There’s nothing stopping you from wearing one at the ceremony and the other at the reception.
