Dresses for Wedding Reception

When the formality of the ceremony is over and everyone’s ready to celebrate, a bride or other guests can slip into one of these dresses for wedding reception.

The popular trend these days is favoring little white dresses for wedding reception. They’re stylish and have a sort of charming austerity, that gets livened up, especially if the dress is sleeveless, with a low neckline, and a short skirt. Other good looks for reception dresses are lustrous satin with a large ornamental bow around the waist and a bubble skirt for a chic 1950’s vibe. Knee-length dresses with a-frame silhouettes cut from delicate lace or crocheted cotton carry a retro 1960’s appeal that works great on the dance floor. A more formal look would be made from something sleek and lustrous, like satin. The important thing is to find a dress that isn’t a traditional ball gown.

    Cindy is an absolutely incredible designer! She is so sweet and so attentive to detail. She emailed me several times to ask me for measurements and was so understanding when I told her I was losing weight, so I wanted to be able to adjust the dress later if I needed to. She literally sewed the dress so that I would be able to adjust it as I lose weight. And the dress looks AMAZING. When I got it, I put it on, twirled around...I couldn't believe how wonderful it looked. Exactly like the photo. She is so talented and I'm so grateful she agreed to make this dress for me. I'm going to have her make another dress for me later this summer. THANKS CHARLENE!!!

    Item was just as described and fit perfectly! I love it! Only slight downside is that the length is a little long which it was my fault with measurement. But other than that which really isn't a big deal it is great :)

    Unexpectedly innovative dress & very comfortable! The ruffle can be adjusted to create slightly different looks. It's just a tad too long but looks amazingly well when I change to higher heels! Really beautiful dress and feels very comfortable. and i do like the sweethear neckline a lot. Thanks so much!

    Thank you for this elegant chiffon wedding dress! It is just how I imagined. I don't have any shoes to wear with it yet so I don't know if the length is a little bit too long, but I don't think that would be a problem that a pair of heels couldn't fix! :)

    I cannot say enough great things about dorriswedding. I was hesitant to order my wedding dress online. Alex was extremely patient with me for over two and half months before I ordered the dress. She sent me samples of the material (which took a little while to arrive but that is to be expected) and even gave me suggestions for a similar dress she thought I might like better. I ended up ordering her suggestion (with a few edits) instead of the one I had picked out originally. The dress is BEAUTIFUL! it fit me perfectly and is exactly as presented in the pictures

    Beautiful dress. Arrived within a few weeks and fits like a glove. While the lace is delicate and at the same time relatively sturdy. Cannot wait to wear it on the wedding.

    This dress is absolutely perfect for my wedding! It looks exactly like the pictures. The fit is perfect.... I usually am a size 4 or 6 and the small size fit like a glove. Asides from the dress being perfect the quick shipping was amazing. Thank you so much for making this the easiest wedding dress shopping experience ever! I'll post photos soon after our wedding this upcoming fall.

    I was very nervous about buying my wedding dress online but there was nothing I liked as much as this dress. David was very reassuring and when I ordered the dress he told me everything I needed to know. I was told how to do the measurements and what information to send him. he kept good communication to me on the progress of the dress and when it would be ready. I now have the dress and cannot believe how perfectly it fits from the measurements we took ourselves at home! It is absolutely perfect and the sewing is flawless. I am so happy I went for it as I now have an unusual fairy dress, perfect for the style of my beach wedding. Thank you David for making it so easy and creating a dress I am thrilled to wear on my wedding day.

    I'm flabbergasted with this dress because I was initially a little bit nervous when I ordered it. The main thing was that of the quality I was not sure that the quality would be great for such a price. But I was wrong. The dress is wonderful and the quality is also exceeding expectations. The size of the dress was spot on and it does not feel like a cheap dress, but a designer made wedding dress which I have always dreamed of wearing on my wedding day.

    Fast shipping! The lace is GORGEOUS and soooo soft. I had to make a return because the dress did not fit me quite right and she was very accommodating and helpful and even offered to make adjustments. I highly recommend.

    So I almost rates this four stars. I really like the dress but the straps aren't very flattering on my shoulders. I have broad shoulders, but I think if you didn't this dress would be great! Everything besides the shoulders is very flattering. It is very comfortable and well made. It was also shipped very quickly. Great customer service. I will probably be ordering more from this shop.

However, The dress arrived today and is really well done and amazingly full Of details.
    I Just love it.. I can't wait to wear it ? highly recommended!
