While brides will spend most of their time and money purchasing their dream wedding gown, some choose to get a short and sweet reception dress on the side.

Maybe your wedding dress is too formal and would constrict you from dancing the night away. Or maybe your reception will be outdoors on a hot summer afternoon and you just want to stay cool. Whatever the reason, these reception dresses are both pretty and full of charm… you will still feel like a bride!
