11 Accessories for your Reception Outfit Change

While we love a gorgeous wedding gown, we also love the trend of brides switching up their look during the reception.  An outfit change can be an extra opportunity for you to show off your personal style and have different fun photos on your big day!  The is *your* day after all, why not take the time to capture everyone’s attention all over again with a surprise switch up?!  You don’t have to stop at just a second dress, though – you can show off your style in every way with fun accessories, too.  We compiled a list of 11 cute (most of them sparkly!) accessories to help you make a bold statement at the end of the night!

1. Cady Boots – Betsy Johnson

We’re starting the list strong, because these might be our favorite shoes EVER.  We love these sparkly boots so much we can’t pick which color would be better for your party.  Choose the rhinestone boots for an extra sparkly exit, or opt for the ivory ones to stay a little more “bridal”!

Betsy Johnson: Rhinestone | Ivory

2. Fingerless Gloves – Lulus

Gloves are such a chic fashion statement, and these fingerless beaded gloves from Lulu’s would pair perfectly with a strapless mini dress for your second look!

3. Ivory Rancher Hat – Gigi Pip

So many of our Rocky Mountain Brides are rocking the western wear lately, so why not rock it on your wedding day!  We think a cute white cowboy hat would help you channel the wild, wild West for a wildly fun reception.

4. Pearl Hair Bow – Shoe Me Your Mumu

The small details can make a statement, too!  If you want to put your hair into a little more of an up-do for the dance party portion of the night, this bow would make it even cuter!

5. Faux Fur Shawl – Lulus

If you’re having a winter wedding, this fuzzy little accessory would be the perfect fun addition to your outfit – especially for those grand exit photos in the cold!

6. Star Earrings – REVOLVE

An outfit isn’t complete without earrings – and you’re the star of the night!   Depending on which jewelry metal you’re choosing for the big day, we love both pairs of these star earrings from REVOLVE.

REVOLVE: Silver | Gold

7. Feather Slippers – Le Reve Boutique

You can be comfy for your reception and still be cute!  Slip into some slippers before you dance the night away.

10. Life of the Party Earrings – Uncommon James

If you want to be the life of the party, these sparkle dangling earrings might do the (party) trick!

11.  White Cowboy Boots – Jeffrey Campbell

We can’t have an accessory list without cowboy boots, can we?!  These tall white boots would complete a mini dress for your western bride look while you boot-scoot the night away!

If the best-night-ever has to end, at least end it in style!  For some inspo on a little white dress to wear these accessories with, check out our blog “6 Little White Dresses To Recreate From Instagram”.
