The 5 Best Short Wedding Reception Dresses From Bridal Fashion Week
We’ve been waxing poetic about gorgeous red wedding gowns from Vera Wang for so long, it’s possible our coverage of reception dresses from Bridal Fashion Week has uh, come up short. But we’ll be rectifying that toute de suite! A good reception dress should be distinctive, un-fussy, and extremely photogenic – and these designer picks certainly fit the bill! Here are a few of our favorites…
This sweet little number from Marchesa features a sweetheart neckline, floral belt, and a tulle-trimmed high-low hem. There’s no reason it has to be resigned to reception dress status – it would also make a perfect choice for a casual spring ceremony! See the rest of Marchesa’s Spring 2013 bridal collection here!
Lace was all over the runways this season. We love how this Amsale dress seamlessly extends a floral lace illusion neckline into a full lace overlay. This dress screams “Garden Party Wedding!” See more of Amsale’s Spring 2013 bridal collection here!
Think your big day needs a little more bling? This sparkling Reem Acra style is mini to the max. This would be a great choice if your reception is taking place in an artsy, urban loft-style space. See the rest of Reem Acra’s Spring 2013 bridal collection here!
Ostrich feathers are an ever-popular reception dress trend, it seems. This empire -waisted style from Rivini is a fab choice for the bride who plans to spend most of the reception shaking it on the dance floor. Get acquainted with the rest of Rivini’s Spring 2013 bridal collection here!
Looking for something a little more traditional? The silhouette of this Junko Yoshioka is conservative, but the raw-edged ruffles give it a playful edge. The rest of Junko Yoshioka’s Spring 2013 bridal collection can be viewed here!
