Wedding dress styles to go from day to night

Many brides are now wearing more than one wedding dress, one for the ceremony and the day, and one for the evening part of their wedding. However, this is only an option if you have a budget that allows for more than one wedding dress – a luxury many brides can’t afford. The best solution? Find a dress style that will take you from day to night effortlessly, allowing you to wear it the entire day and evening without having to pay for two dresses.

If you want a wedding dress style to go from day to night, here are our top picks:



A strapless dress is ideal for taking you from day to night. You can mix it up by adding a bolero or a cape during the day for a demurer style, and then take it off for the evening part of your wedding. A strapless dress will flatter most shapes, and provides an elegant yet understated look. Add a statement necklace to mix it up during the evening too.




A Line

One of the most popular wedding dress styles, an A line dress will take you from day to night easily. This style is narrow at the top and gets wider from the waist to the hemline to create that ‘A’ shape. This simple style is perfect for a classy look at the ceremony, while still being flattering and elegant for your evening do.




Column dress

A column dress is elegant and simple, the perfect style to take you from day to night. This style is characterised by its slim and fitted shape which flows from the neckline down to the hem. They emphasise the figure well without being too risqué, so it works well for your ceremony as well as your evening party.




Tea Length

If you’re looking for a shorter style, a tea length dress is more suitable than a mini dress if you want to go from day to night. This length will show off your legs without being too short, so you can still wear it during the daytime. This length is feminine and girly while still being a little flirty – making it the perfect style to go from day to night.
