When it comes to planning your wedding, the ceremony and the reception typically have two very different feels. The ceremony is typically a more traditional event, perhaps a bit more subdued. Your reception, on the other hand, is all about celebrating—livelier and certainly festive. This is reflected in everything from the decor to the music—and your wedding-day look, as well. If you’re not interested in purchasing two wedding dresses to switch up your look between the ceremony and reception, there are other, equally stunning, options.

The Allure Bridals Capsule Collection features tops and skirts that you can mix and match to transform your look from a more traditional ensemble to an outfit that’s totally ready to party! We’re here to show you how.

The Look: Classic Beauty

A lace bodice with a sweetheart neckline is the ultimate feminine classic. For your ceremony, pair it with a traditional A-line skirt, with a lace-adorned hem to match. When you’re ready to party, a tulle skirt will turn the look into a girly-girl, vintage-inspired party dress, perfect for dancing all night long.

The Look: Glam Goddess

If you’re all about Hollywood glitz and glamour, a sparkly bodice embellished with crystals and metallic embroidery is an absolute must. If you’re hosting your ceremony in a large space, pair the glittery top with a ruffled and tiered skirt that will match your venue’s grandeur. For the reception, switch out the skirt in favor of a more form-fitting style.

The Look: Modern Maven

If ruffles and lace aren’t your thing, not to worry. Choose a simple yet stunning top with a curved strapless neckline and flattering ruched details. For the ceremony, a clean and elegant long skirt is just right, while a fitted pencil skirt is ideal for a contemporary reception.

The Look: Oh-So-Romantic

Remember, switching your skirt isn’t the only way to change up your look from ceremony to reception—you can swap your top, too! A boho-chic tulle skirt is versatile enough to take you from ceremony to reception—it’s classic and ethereal enough for the ceremony, but moves beautifully so it’s easy to dance in. In terms of the tops, a bit more coverage in the form of lace sleeves is ideal for the ceremony, whereas going sleeveless with illusion details turns the heat up a notch for the reception.

The Look: Sexy Siren

If your goal is to show off your shape, a trumpet-style satin skirt is an absolute must. We love the idea of keeping your guests guessing by choosing a classic and feminine lace bodice for the ceremony and then switching into a va-va-voom beaded bodice for the reception. If you’re all about turning heads and causing jaws to drop, this is an ideal look.
