The Perfect Reception Look, Based On Your ~Bridal Vibe~

In partnership with Dolce Vita.

If there’s one newer wedding trend that I love, it’s the reception outfit change. I mean, think about it — wedding dresses aren’t the most comfortable things. They can be cumbersome and overly formal, especially when the dance party portion of the evening kicks up. And the shoes!! Don’t even get me started on the need to change your shoes after being in the same pair all day.

A reception look fixes all of the above. They tend to be a little more comfortable, easier to move in, and also allow you to express yourself through a second outfit. And who doesn’t want the opportunity to change things up? It’s your day after all!

But if you’re not sure where to start in terms of your second look, I’ve got you covered. I’ve put together a bunch of looks based on your bridal vibe, just below. They’re complete with gorgeous shoes from Dolce Vita — perfect for dancing all night long.

Disco Diva

If your centerpieces are more disco balls than florals, you need a cute little number for your boogie down reception. I love the idea of a jumpsuit and some spangly earrings for a disco vibe. Plus, a pair of platform sandals, like Dolce Vita’s Bobby Pearl Heels, are the most comfortable things to dance in long into the night.

‘90s Supermodel

Minimalist brides, this look is for you. There is nothing sleeker or more chic than a satin-y slip dress paired with some embellished heels, like the Dolce Vita Nandy Pearl Heels. The slip-on mule design makes them incredibly comfortable, while the pearl detailing makes them perfect for your big day. Pair with minimal accessories and a slicked-back bun, and you’ll look like the supermodel of the world.

Bow, Betch

For the girly girls of the world, I ask you this — have you considered just layering on the bows? I mean, in what other situation in your life would you be able to just be able to lean fully into your frothiest, girliest, most hearts-and-bows self? Pair your bow-embellished dress with some Dolce Vita Kayli Heels to really up the ante. Some pink lipstick pulls it all together.

Well Suited

I don’t know about you, but I *love* the idea of a wedding suit. So if you’re doing the dress thing for the ceremony, why not embrace your city hall dreams for the reception? These Dolce Vita Ivory Satin kitten heels are so adorable, and the low heel makes them perfect for dancing. Pair them with a suit jacket mini dress for a sexy little twist.

Pearl, Please

What is it about pearls that make them so perfect for a bride? I love the whimsy of just piling on the pearls for your reception — especially if your wedding had a lot of white flowers and feminine touches. The Dolce Vita Katik Pearl Heels have so much embellishment on them that you can go a bit more simple with your dress. Just play up the pearls in the accessories, like Dolce Vita’s Linzy Pearl Bag. Hey, you can always use a little extra…
