Rehearsal Dinner

or Second Dress Options

It's no secret that wedding dresses have evolved from one-size-fits-all to one-of-a-kind. While trends of the time still influence the design of a wedding dress, a dress speaks more about a bride's unique style than about the current era. A dress's fabric, pattern, neckline, and hemline are all customizable. Those seeking a more feminine look may prefer ball gowns and tulle skirts, while those seeking a more bohemian look may favor sheath silhouettes and lace panels. However, you are not limited to one style. Recent years have seen an increase in the popularity of reception dresses or second dresses in general to show off your personal style! 


It can be both fun and logical to wear a second dress for your wedding reception when budget and time permit. With it, you can easily leave the train behind and move around the reception as you please. And you can play with fun prints and textures to elevate your second look. Here are a few of the short gowns we feature at Sareh Nouri:
