Picture this: It's your wedding day and you've said your "I do"s, listened to the toasts, and torn up the dance floor. The night is winding down and it feels like the end of your special day is (sadly) coming to a close. But not so fast—it's time to change into a wedding after-party outfit and keep the celebration going for a little while longer. Take it from us when we say that after parties are always a good idea, especially if you've got a killer outfit to change into.

Below, we've rounded up 22 wedding after-party looks that are totally worth a late-night wardrobe change.
