Exclusive Wedding Reception dresses Your Can’t Ignore

Reception dresses have become a part of wedding culture, and with good reason. Maybe your dress had to conform to certain requirements to be allowed in the church. Maybe your mom prevailed over you and got to pick your dress. Maybe you even got your dream dress- the one that made all your bridesmaids and even ‘Bae’ wipe a few tears because oh gosh, a princess (or angel, as you please); but now you are ready to slay in a different way. You want eyes popping and mouths in O’s. Okay, maybe it’s not that deep, maybe you just want to ‘scatter’ the dance floor and your first dress won’t let you be great. Enter the reception dress, the one that checks any boxes left unchecked by your first dress.

You can even have a third and a fourth; as long as you can afford it, why not? It’s your day ‘sistuh’. Let’s look at some of the most stunning dresses we’ve seen lately that are sure to inspire you.


Jaws will drop, speech will disappear when you saunter in wearing this red reception dress from Elisha Red Label.

This stunning silver creation is by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad and was seen on the red carpet at the Cannes festival. Any bride will be the belle of the ball in this dress. We imagine the train will keep all eyes trained as you waltz in, and then it can be detached when it’s time to get down.
