30 Little White Dresses for Your Wedding Reception

    A bride’s dress can set the tone for an entire wedding, but, for many fashion-loving ladies, the best part about a gown is taking it off and trading it in for a second, more party-ready frock. After all, with shorter hemlines and fewer layers to contend with, reception and party dresses mean you can dance the night away without fear of tripping or getting tangled in your gown. (Exhibit A: the adorable bride below, who went from a soft and fluttery full-length gown to a sparkly, long-sleeve dress for dancing.)

    We scoured the racks at a few of our favorite shops to find 30 perfect LWDs (that’s little white dresses—plus a few with sheen, sparkle, and off-white hues) to suit most any bride’s style, from laid-back, to luxe, to girly and glamorous. Just add the perfect pair of dancing shoes and your newly minted Mister.
