One Bride, 3 Dresses

Why have one dress when you can have three? Modern brides are choosing dress options for each part of her big day. A classic ball gown for the ceremony, a sheath dress for the reception and then a short, minidress for the after-party. Brides, if you love fashion and can’t choose just one dress, here are the best looks for your upcoming nuptials.

For the Ceremony:

A princess ball gown is perfect for a ceremony that takes place in a church or a very formal venue. Traditional doesn’t mean that you can’t incorporate trends into your look. Give dresses with a hint of blush or sheer sleeves a try for a twist on the classics.

For the Reception

Turn heads at your wedding after-party by changing from a gown to a short dress that is playful and just begs for a serious dance party. Another option is to wear separates like the Naeem Khan suit above.
