Although not mandatory in any way, many brides choose to wear a second gown to their wedding. The reasons for doing this range from “not being able to decide on one dress” to simply spicing things up and feeling more comfortable in the second part of the Big Day (the reception, that is).

Provided that your ceremony wedding dress is an elegant, traditional piece, what kind of dress could you buy as a second wedding gown to add a little uniqueness to the entire wedding day?

We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

· A short camisole. Yes, camisoles are coming back in full force (together with a myriad of other late 90s and early 2000s trends). This kind of dress is perfect for the bride who wants to feel feminine and girly, and who wants to make sure she has plenty of freedom to move around on the dance floor. If you want to, you can stay in your ceremony wedding dress during the reception too and change in this (clearly more relaxed) camisole for the after party!

· A classy one-shoulder gown. A simple, long gown with one shoulder and a long sleeve on the other arm, showing just a little bit of leg – now, this is sophistication at its finest! This kind of dress is perfect for the daring bride who wants to have a little bit of both worlds: a traditional princess look for the ceremony and a modern feminine look for the reception.

· A deep-V jumpsuit. You don’t have to wear an actual dress if you don’t want to! Bridal jumpsuits have been growing in popularity and for obvious reasons: they can make you feel empowered, modern, and sexy in an effortless and comfortable way. A deep-V jumpsuit made from quality fabrics and accessorized in a stylish way can make a real statement at your wedding reception and it can help you feel comfortable moving around and dancing too. Not to mention, this attire will definitely make you feel like the strong, modern woman you are!
