If you are a bride planning your wedding, shopping for and selecting your wedding dress is probably one item on the wedding planning checklist you are most looking forward to. A popular trend for brides today is to have a second wedding dress or bridal outfit to change into for the wedding reception. Many brides like to change up their look and surprise their wedding guests at the wedding reception with a new bridal fashion look that is different than what they wore for the wedding ceremony. Opting for two wedding dresses or bridal outfits on a wedding day gives brides the chance to have fun with their wedding day looks and bridal style. Many brides want a more traditional feeling wedding gown for the wedding ceremony, but often then want to show off a bit and have a fun party dress for dancing late into the night at the reception or into the after party.
If you are considering a second bridal dress for your wedding reception, be sure to check out our recent post about all the things to consider with reception bridal dresses.
