So you have finally decided on your wedding dress and now you are thinking about your wedding reception and what will be the best dress to wear.

Maybe you want to keep wearing your wedding dress or you might want to wear something that will be great for dancing. What about the color? Here are some tips to help you look stunning…

Consider If You Need a Separate Dress for The Wedding Reception.

You like dancing and want to feel comfortable but this is your big day and the time will go so quickly. You have the rest of your life to wear things more comfortable and casual. If you are worried about your dress dragging on the dance floor then have the train of the wedding dress in a bustle. The cost of having a bustle will depend on your dress fabric and the length of the train. If you can’t have a bustle then another option would be to consider a wedding dress with a removable train.

A Short or Slim Dress will Flatter Your Figure as You Dance With Style.

A slim or short reception dress can be perfect to dress down when your wedding ceremony has finished. Get ready for a night of dancing, dining and fun in a short dress. Simple silhouettes will add a touch of glamour while you chat with your wedding guests and enjoy the party. If you want to keep wearing your wedding dress then a “convertible” could be what you are looking for. Convertible wedding dresses are designed with zippers in them so they are long for your ceremony and then the lower part unzips to make them into a short party dress. The ruffles in the dress will conceal the zipper.

Sexy white dresses are guaranteed to make you look good and for a summer wedding, wearing a breezy satin white dress will be comfortable and really soft on your skin.
