The Second Dress

Can't decide on which wedding dress you want to wear? Why not wear two? More and more brides are choosing to wear a completely different dress for the reception and we love this trend! It could be that she has her mom's wedding dress for the ceremony, but wants something more modern for the reception. Or it could be that the ceremony is very formal and traditional, but the reception is more of a casual party. Whatever the reason, we've got the "second dress" for you!

Our favorites are a little more flirty and fun and definitely short. This Jovani ruffle dress is so fun and funky! Pair it with an amazing pair of heels and super sparkly accessories:


If you're looking for something a little more sleek, why not wear this brand-new, super sexy Nicole Miller one-shoulder shift dress:


Of course, we also understand that the expense of having a second dress might not be manageable for everyone. In that case, consider a dress that's convertible! We have an amazing Martina Liana dress here in our store that is two separate pieces. Beneath the amazing silk ballgown skirt is a fitted sheath dress! (The jacket pictured is sold separately.) You're essentially getting two dresses for the price of one!

Another more economical "second dress" option is to consider purchasing a bridemaid dress in white or ivory. We loved this one by Bill Levkoff because it's got such a fabulous sparkly top:


It's pictured above with a silver bodice and ivory skirt, but the color combinations are a lot more varied. We've had a quite a few brides order this dress for their reception look.

We're huge fans of all of these "second dress" looks and if you are, too, then why not book an appointment to come in and try them on? You can book online or call us during our business hours.
