6/21 {Can’t Afford It/Get Over It} Flapper-Style Reception Dress

This week’s CAI/GOI request is all about finding a wedding gown you can really shake it in, aka “The Reception Dress”.  Many brides choose a gown that is a bit more elegant (errr, constrictive?) to wear during the ceremony.  But when it comes time to bust a move on the dance floor, many of these elegant ceremony gowns do not allow for maximum bust-age. And coming from a bride who lives to dance, there is no chance in H-E-double hockey sticks that I would let myself be constricted during a dance party entirely dedicated to ME. So when bride Sarah sent me her plea to find help find her a flapper style reception dress, I just knew I had to help a fellow mover n’ shaker out.  Read what she had to say:

Love these ruffled flapper dresses, but don’t want to go overboard spending on a reception dress. Any help is appreciated!

All the best –

    I love them all…especially #8. Unique Vintage has the most beautiful dresses…I think I'm going to order my wedding dress from there!

  • Ooh the #7 Unique Vintage and the Sue Wong are SOO cute!!!

  • Courtney

    When I started reading this post, #7 and #9 were the first dresses that came to mind for me. I love both these dresses so much. If we were doing 20s rather than 40s, those would be my picks. 😀

  • I guess I will look good on dress # 9. Really fascinating and stunning!

    Luckily, I already found a wedding dress that I love…but it’s fun to see what other brides are looking for. Also, there have been quite a few awesome websites I’ve been linked to through you. So THANK YOU & keep it rollin’ BABs!!
