Need fresh dress inspiration, as in the loveliest sheer neckline wedding dress ever? I know that’s a tall order, but we’ve found it! This dress is handmade by Grace Loves Lace and is an ideal style for the bohemian bride. It features an invisible mesh neckline, stretch French lace bodice, hand cut appliquéd lace, and a sheer lace back. We adore the tulle wraps that fall from the back and cross-cross to tie around your waist; it’s such a unique touch! You can leave the tulle wraps loose to make a train, too, if you prefer (or for just the ceremony). Don’t just take our word for it… take a look for yourself!
We’ve been seeing a lot of blush wedding finds lately, but this dress sash is one of our favorites! We spotted it over at Floral Jewellery where Vaida is crafting up floral pretties like this one. And while I used to not be one for a dress sash (I always thought it took away from the gown), it’s finds like these that have really changed my mind! Take a look, it’s stunning!

Are you changing into a reception dress after the ceremony? Or perhaps at the end of the night, right before your grand exit? You’ve come to the right place! A reception dress isn’t a requirement, but there are a few tips to consider before you pick the perfect one. Here are seven essential reception dress tips PLUS a few hand-picked dresses from Etsy we know you’ll love as much as we do. Enjoy!
A reception dress shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Most reception dresses cost anywhere from $100 to $300, but it really depends on what you’re comfortable spending. There’s no right or wrong here, as long as you love the dress you pick!
3. Get the most out of your reception dress.
We recommend buying your reception dress well ahead of time so you can wear it to other wedding events, like your bridal shower or bachelorette bash. It’s one thing to wear your wedding gown one time, but having two dresses you’ll never wear again? Not necessary. :)
Make sure you enjoy your bridal gown as long as possible. When you’re ready to change, you’ll know it– you’ll be ready to get into something comfortable and go all out on the dance floor. We recommend you wait until then. If you change into your reception dress too early, you’ll miss out on some crucial gown time. After all, you won’t be able to wear it again, so enjoy it!
