Reception dresses, and even an after-reception dress, is a trend that many brides are embracing. It’s fun to look back at pictures and see yourself in different outfits, and having more than one dress is a great way to pace out your day and give yourself a little break. A second, more casual look also gives you some options to wear while away on your honeymoon.
For the practical bride, a versatile two-piece reception outfit not only lets you mix and match your own look, but gives you two lovely new pieces to add to your closet. Several dress designers are now featuring separates, tops and skirts, pant suits, jackets and other pieces that are made with the same quality and attention to detail you’d expect from wedding wear.
If you’re feeling whimsical and glamorous try Watters’ extraordinary ostrich feather vest. Like something right out of Scream Queens this fabulous Merapi vest is totally touchable and also a clever way to add a little extra warmth when the reception goes long into the night.
Make your look extra special by adding an accessory, like one of the collection’s crystal beaded belts. Every girl needs a little sparkler like this in her wardrobe, perfect for dressing up a little black dress, or adding some instant glam to a colorful pair of cigarette pants.
The Watters Willowby line has a number of skirts, tops, and crop tops that they sell separately. See them paired with coordinating pieces from the collection by clicking on the photos.
Who says it has to be a dress? After wearing a dress all day, you might be ready for a change of pace. This Mary’s Bridal three-piece pants has all the pieces you need in one chic package. It’s also a great look for spring events. Re-wear, don’t care.
If you think your reception might get a little wild, a chic jumpsuit or romper is ideal for dancing the night away.
