To Have a Reception Dress....or Not to Have a Reception Dress?

I have been thinking about a costume change for the reception. I haven't really worked all the details out, but I think it would be so fun to change into a party dress to maximize my rug cutting potential! I'm thinking something Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, or the cast from Mad Men inspired. Below are some potential looks. Any thoughts?

yes! I did, though it wasn't as great as what you have there. I wore another wedding type dress which was just more comfortable. I had worn my grandma's vintage 1954 wedding gown and when it was at the cleaners, they SHRUNK it. So I was EXTREMELY corseted and just couldn't wear the dress longer than the ceremony. If I had it to do over instead of wearing another wedding styled dress (it was my junior year prom dress which my mom had made me and was very brideish) I would have worn a 50s style cocktail dress.

1950s cocktail dresses are really IN.
