While choosing a wedding gown is so much fun, for those who want to go a little extra, are fashion lovers, or are looking for something a little more comfortable while they dance the night away, a reception dress might just be the answer.

Whether you choose to change outfits as soon as your wedding party photos are complete, or wait til the party starts and you’re ready to hit the dance floor, reception dresses can be fun, fabulous and bring a little flair.

Scroll on for some ultimate second look inspiration we’ve compiled just for you.
