Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her special day. You want to feel like a princess, but you also want to be comfortable enough to enjoy both your wedding and your reception. Many brides make the mistake of sacrificing the ultimate wedding dresses they want to wear for their ceremony for the sake of comfort during the after party. The best solution to this dilemma is to wear the most beautiful gown during the ceremony, and to also wear the most stylish wedding dress that won’t prevent you from dancing the night away.
Full-length wedding dresses help brides capture the essence of a princess-like gown. Christina Wu carries a wide selection of gowns with full and detailed skirts that exude your ultimate style. Our wedding dresses also come in a variety of fabrics, such as silk, that make you feel your best. To make your waist look smaller, many styles also feature corset-style enclosures in the back. The possibilities of wedding gowns are endless, as some styles dramatic styles envelope you in layers of fabric, while others are beautiful with sweet details.
Finding your wedding dress is one of the most important parts of planning your ceremony. However, is your perfect gown appropriate for the fun and eventful reception you have found? You may be afraid that your feet will get caught in your dress during your first dance with your groom, or maybe the waist-defining corset you wanted for the ceremony might be too restricting to wear all night.
The solution to this problem was addressed during Kate Middleton’s own wedding, when she traded in her elegant ceremony gown for a full-length satin dress that did not feature a train. The second dress was equally as beautiful, but had different features so that it was comfortable to wear during the whole reception.
When searching through our beautiful wedding dresses to wear during your reception, consider a short option with unique detailing. An example of this type of style is this fun bubble hem dress by Dere Kiang. The choker neckline and flower details create a twist on the ordinary short dress, and it is still comfortable enough to wear throughout the evening.
As a typical bride, you are likely on a tight budget. If having a second dress to wear on your special day doesn’t seem to work within your budget, focus instead on one dress to wear during and after the ceremony. The wedding gown you choose should be of both high quality and fashion, as well as comfortable enough for you to dance in at your reception.
Consider a shorter version of a drop-waist gown if you prefer full-length wedding dresses, but desire a style that is comfortable to move around in after the ceremony. If you are not picky about the length of your dress, consider a shorter gown. Short wedding dresses are especially appropriate for outdoor weddings.
