Reception Dresses

Recently, brides have been opting to change into a second dress for their receptions. The key is to find something bridal but more conducive to your celebratory needs. Nordstrom's wedding department has some great options.

This Kate Spade dress is a silk blend and would be lovely for an afternoon garden reception. You can also re-wear by adding some colorful accessories, making it perfect for Easter or a party. This dress is a bit more expensive but it is so versatile that you will definitely find many occasions for wearing it.

This Eliza J dress has lovely embroidery and beading. You could switch out your champagne wedding dress for this one and the color scheme would still match. The price is great, too!

If you are going for a more glamorous look for dancing, this Betsy and Adam dress is definitely a show stopper. With an interesting front and back, you need minimal accessories which will leave you free to dance the night away.


The Nordstrom online wedding department has a great selection of white reception dresses either for purchasing or inspiration. And always remember, a well fitting dress is a great dress so make sure to visit a seamstress at least a month in advance!
