Dancing the night away has never been so chic. Brides are wearing multiple looks on their wedding days and opting for the ultimate bridal afterparty look for their receptions, and we couldn’t be more here for it.

Feather detail, refined embellishment, sleek silhouettes, swaying fringe, dramatic capes, and all interpretations of afterparty looks have been gracing the runways, perfect for a night of dancing. An afterparty look is another opportunity for the bride to express her style on her wedding day, as well as opt for a silhouette better suited for dancing than the voluminous gowns and veils often seen at the wedding ceremony.

From mini dresses to separates, your options are infinite. There are a variety of options both off-the-rack and made-to-measure. For wow-worthy photos on the dance floor, consider embellishment that will reflect light and the flash of the camera, or playful fringe with plenty of movement. Cascading capes are a must for drama, and sometimes removable, if desired.

Looking for touches of color? Consider a floral dress by Monique Lhuillier or your favorite designer’s non-bridal collections. Wanting something a little more sultry? Try barely there sheer gowns, cut-outs, shorter hems, or slip silhouettes.

Whether you’re looking for a flirty mini dress, a cool girl matching set, or all-out drama, scroll to discover our favorite bridal afterparty looks of the moment.
