We firmly believe that when it comes to weddings (and budget, right?) more is more! Why have a two tiered cake when it can be three? Why have just one wedding dress, when you can have two? 🙂 The reception dress trend over the last few years is one we stand behind whole heartedly. Not only for fashion reasons, but for practical ones. For your ceremony, go with THE dress. The wedding dress that’s regal, flowing and undoubtedly bridal. (Side note, the best advice I got while dress shopping was this: pick a dress that is a wedding gown, not something that you could wear to a formal event if it was in another color.)

Certainly, you want that bridal moment. Likewise, you want that glamorous dress for the photos. At the same time, you want to be able to dance the night away and perhaps show a little bit more of your sexy side for the reception. That’s where the second dress comes in. But, sexy and extra doesn’t mean you have to break the bank! One of our favorite sites to shop online is Lulus, and they have an amazing selection of white dresses at seriously affordable prices.
