Reception-Ready Wedding Dresses (PHOTOS)

Torn over which wedding dress to make your own? You could try the trend some brides are taking on and switch into a different dress for your reception. This option lets you show off your personal style, or just let your hair down (and raise your hemline up) after a conservative ceremony.

We love the way these dresses can immediately set the tone for a fun party and the forgiving silhouettes are often great for dancing and enjoying an extra slice of cake.

Would you change into a second dress for your reception? Let us know in the comments!
