Party-Ready Dresses For Wedding Season

With Wedding Season currently in full swing, it’s time for a story on party dresses! Okay, so you’re probably thinking, “but if it’s wedding season, why not a post on wedding dresses?” Well, that’s because I wanted this to be a more inclusive kind of post that’s relevant to not just brides, but also those of you attending as a wedding guest. 😉

Besides, if you’re a bride-to-be, I’m pretty sure that you already have your wedding dress all sorted out. I’ve seen enough of my friends who’ve gotten married, or who are getting married, to know that the wedding dress is something the they devote most thought and energy to, and invest the most time scouting for. Believe me, I’ve had friends who are based in Asia who have gone to the painstaking extent of sourcing of spending over 24 hours travelling all the way to the northern hemisphere to source for a wedding dress in the US, particularly, to find mermaid wedding dresses, that were, in her eyes, perfection. #perseverance, don’t you think?

But, because so much time is spent on the unending quest for the “perfect wedding dress”, the party dresses for both the rehearsal dinner and actual post-reception dinner, are left to the very last minute, almost as if it were an afterthought. And, when this happens, the bride (or, for the majority of my friends, at least) finds herself having to settle for okay-ish party dresses (some change into 2 different dresses during the dinner itself) – which pales in comparison to her bridal gown which accentuates all her curves in the right places – just because she simply ran out of time. I mean, believe me, what you dress yourself in for the dinner, is equally important! After all, your wedding is one of the biggest life events you will ever experience, and there’ll certainly be lots of photographic evidence of the occasion. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to look back at the photos regretting what you wore. Yep, I’m talking about that “OMG why did I wear that?!”, which is totally worse than the buyer’s remorse you felt for that impulse purchase. So, if you have a wedding coming up, and you still haven’t found your evening gown or party dress for the dinner, I hope that this comes timely enough to give you some ideas that may point you in the right direction.


For those of us attending as wedding guests (or perhaps you could just be looking for party dresses for the annual end-of-year parties), I’ve also picked out some glamorous dresses for you, so that you’ll look equally fabulous – without upstaging the bride, of course!  – along with some evening bags right here to elevate your look even further 😉 Oh, my selections are mostly full-length dresses including a jumpsuit or two, because I’ve noticed that trends have changed. While short dresses may have been considered wedding-appropriate a couple of years back, nowadays, it’s all about long dresses.


So, whether you’re a bride-to-be, or a wedding guest, I hope this helps you on your way to finding that perfect party dress so that you can be on your way to looking your absolute best!
