The best evening wedding reception dress ideas in 2022 from Olivia Bottega

21 Feb 2022

Switch up your bridal look with these evening wedding reception dresses from Olivia Bottega 

2022 has just started, yet weddings are well underway. If you are planning to get married this year and don't know where to start with your bridal gown, we are here to help. And what would a wedding be without the perfect evening wedding reception dress

Reception dresses are a very fun and convenient way for the bride to slip into something different and perhaps more comfortable after the ceremony. While a church wedding may be very formal, the real party happens afterwards and you will like to make sure that you’re wearing a dazzling party dress for the occasion. 

Classic dresses without too much extra detail would be a perfect choice for a wedding reception dress. Here are 11 stunning options from Olivia Bottega. 

1. Satin Midi Wedding & Evening Dress Cameron 


This elegant satin dress with an off-the-shoulder top is very pretty. The midi length will allow you to dance, while the classic silhouette is very appropriate and showstopping for your evening extravaganza. 

2. Sparkly Midi Wedding Dress Ramona


If you don’t want to shine but wish to sparkle, the 'Ramona' midi dress will fit the bill just perfectly. The plunging V-neckline is covered with sheer tulle, and the lush skirt is very playful and romantic. Sheer long sleeves and a dazzling rhinestone belt finish the look in style. 

3. Crepe Wedding Dress Jessica 


Wedding reception dresses don’t have to be midi length or covered in sparkle. This budget-friendly, elegant and sophisticated floor-length crepe dress is a fine option too. The fit and flare silhouette will stun everyone with a square décolleté and skin-tight soft fabric. 

4. Sequin Evening Dress Monro


Reception dresses don’t have to be white though, you can absolutely go for nude and even mosaic patterns if you wish. This dress is decorated with sequin fractals all around, the semi-sweetheart top is strapless and adorned with a rhinestone belt.

5. Crepe Midi Wedding Dress Nora


There is also no need to be wear a long dress if you don't want to; a mini dress is stylish and sexy too. The V-neck and skin tight sheath silhouette in this design emphasises the bride's hourglass shape and shows off her beautiful legs. 

6. 2 in 1 Midi Wedding Dress Monika 



This sheath style and midi length combination is dazzling. A sleek, satin fabric is stunning and minimalist yet very daring, while the sexy front slit adds a little bit of spice. The best thing about this dress is the detachable tulle skirt; add it on and by a simple move, your sheath dress turns into a lush, sparkly midi gown.

7. Tea Length Crepe Wedding Dress Emma


This charming and very delicate midi dress features slightly puffed shoulders and long sleeves. The square décolleté neckline and flare at the bottom of the skirt add a chic and sophisticated element. 

8. Midi Sparkling Wedding Dress Milli


If you still feel like you need more sparkles, we hear you loud and clear. Cascading into a plunging V-neck, the whole top of the Milli dress is covered with rhinestones and beads. Long sleeves add class to your reception look, while the sparkly skirt with a front slit exudes romance. 

9. Sparkly Midi Wedding Dress Fly


Of course, a reception dress can even be a mermaid silhouette or a trumpet style. The gorgeous Fly dress with short puff sleeves and a plunging V-neck creates a very playful and desirable look, bearing a skin-tight shape in sparkly fabric.

10. Minimalist Satin Wedding Dress Bess


The bateau neckline and exposed arms give way to a loose and airy skirt for a classic finish. Timeless through and through, clean minimalism is a sure-fire way to ensure all eyes are on you. 

11. Minimalist Mermaid Wedding Dress Selena


Taking the minimalist look one step further, this flirtatious variation is an all-time bridal favourite. A flattering skin-tight skirt hugs to the wearer's hips, and a sparkly sweetheart top and delicate spaghetti straps add further femininity.  

A wedding reception dress can change the mood of your special day in a heartbeat, so why not choose to switch up your wedding wear, if you can? Relax, slip into something more comfortable and earn extra style points while looking stunning in all the pictures as you enjoy the best night of your life.

With dresses to fit every budget, Olivia Bottega has something for every bride – from satin jumpsuits and daring mini dresses, to embroidered corsets and thigh-high slit skirts. Visit the website for more:
