25 wedding after party dresses for your evening reception
Why just have one wedding dress when you can have two? A wedding after party dress for your evening reception is a great opportunity to showcase a totally different look and change into an outfit that's fun, comfortable and stylish to dance the night away. While a second look might feel like an extravagance, there are plenty of gorgeous wedding after party dresses that have the look and feel of couture for a fraction of the cost. Looking for the perfect bride evening dress? Here's our pick of 25 super stylish wedding after party dresses to wow at your wedding reception.
Bridal jumpsuits and playsuits
Jumpsuits are a popular wedding after party look choice as they are sleek, modern and comfortable. They're much easier to move around in than a full skirted gown, making it a cinch to work the room and strut your stuff on the dance floor.
Feather shift dresses
Fun, flirty and tactile, a feathery mini dress is the perfect choice to make a dramatic entrance into your wedding reception, and you're sure to fine another excuse to wear it again in future.
Tulle wedding reception dresses
Equal parts sweet and playful, frothy tulle dresses are a gorgeous romantic option for your second look and light enough to keep cool while dancing late into the night.
Metallic mini dresses
Shimmer like a disco ball with a chic metallic dress in silver, gold, rose gold, copper or pewter. Whether you go for structured or slinky, you're sure to feel like a million dollars!
Sequin mini dresses
Nothing says party time quite like an allover sequin mini. This sparkly number was born for the dance floor and made for an afterparty that goes late into the night (and morning!)
Slinky slip dresses
A silky slip dress is perfect for showing that toned wedding bod you've been working on for months, plus they're super light and comfortable, and ideal for a summer wedding.
Dramatic wedding after party dresses
Imagine sweeping down the staircase into your wedding reception like a Hollywood starlet in a daring dramatic gown. If you've gone demure and understated for your main wedding dress, now is your chance to go all out drama.
Printed wedding reception dresses
There are no rules when it comes to second looks so feel free to express your personal style with different colors, prints and hem lengths. It's nice to choose a dress that doesn't shout 'wedding' so you can wear it again, perhaps on honeymoon or for a special birthday.
