Reception dresses/short wedding dresses on etsy.com

If you’re lucky enough (or good enough at saving) to have the money, it’s a great idea to have a separate reception dress. Inevitably your long wedding dress will end up getting stepped on while on the dance floor! These dresses would also make great short wedding dresses too – not everyone wants a full-length gown on their wedding day 🙂

Reception dresses

SO GORGEOUS! If you can afford a reception dress, you should definitely consider getting one. It makes dancing so much easier, and you don’t have to worry about people stepping on your wedding dress train all night! Have a look at these beautiful reception dresses for sale on etsy.com.

More lovely random goodies that I’ve spotted on etsy.com this week. How cute is the customised map postcard? I love the rattan heart fairy lights too 🙂

Random wedding things I like on etsy.com

I’ve decided this will become a fairly regular post, as I always see so many gorgeous items on etsy.com that wouldn’t necessarily slot into any of the colour schemes I’m working on or have done in the past. So standby for a giant inspiration board full of beautiful wedding-related things I’ve seen on Etsy recently!

Reception dresses

The ‘reception dress’, a simpler, easier-to-move-in, often shorter dress for the bride to wear to the reception, is becoming more popular these days.

After all, what girl doesn’t want two dresses, right?! Bridal gowns can be very heavy, and long trains aren’t exactly practical at a reception, when you run the risk of your dressed being stepped on or caught under chairs…plus, they’re quite difficult to dance in! So a reception dress, if your budget allows, is a great idea. Have a look at some options I found online.
