As a wedding photographer, one of my favorite things to photograph is a wedding reception. Receptions are full of so many fun and emotional moments, and I truly love seeing my couples let loose on the dance floor and party the night away with their family and friends. One of my favorite things that I’ve seen brides embrace in recent years is the reception “wardrobe change”. This is such a fun surprise for your guests, and it also gives you more variety in your wedding photos, plus you can be more comfortable while you’re dancing!

I know finding yet another outfit to wear on your wedding day is no easy task though, so I’ve put together a list of some of our absolute favorite wedding reception dresses for you to check out! Today we’re sharing dresses that fit every style and budget. We hope this gives you some ideas for your own wedding reception! Happy planning!

I love everything about this dress! From the pearls, to the puff sleeves, and the fun twirly skirt. This reception dress would be perfect for those fun dancing moments!
Tulle is a huge trend in bridal right now and I am absolutely here for it! This dress from Revolve is perfect for a fun, modern bride!
Not gonna lie, I could never pull off a slim figured dress like this. But for those brides who want to show off their figure, this would be perfect!
Another huge bridal trend right now is BOWS! I’m loving all of the big statement bows lately! So many fun things that weren’t around when I got married (sigh!)
Not only is this dress beautiful and sleek, but it is also super budget friendly! At under $60, this would be perfect for any wedding reception!
This dress is sleek and modest, so you don’t have to worry about being covered while you dance!
Another dress that is more on the modern side, but also super fun with the light flowy skirt and the tulle straps!
