A wedding is when a girl gets to play dress up and live out her sartorial fantasies. And if you watched way too many Disney movies as a child (guilty!) and always wanted a proper princess gown, you can fulfill that fantasy too. Gowns are the latest trend for a cocktail reception, and these brides are giving us real cocktail gown goals!

1. Princess pink

Off-shoulder, full tulle skirt and a liberal sprinkling of sequins - no wonder this glowing bride is twirling in happiness!

This is our ideal of a chic cocktail gown. The massive tulle skirt and the gold, embroidered bodice let this bride just glow. Also, how delicious does that wedding cake look? (Yum!)

Who says only your shaadi ka joda needs to be red. This deep red cocktail gown really stands out from the usual pinks and ivories.

4. Lace it up!

We’ve seen net, we’ve seen tulle but what about lace? Especially if it’s hand-crafted chantilly lace? This bride departs in so many ways from the usual cocktail gowns - the mermaid-style skirt which doesn’t flare, the bareback trompe l'oeil netting at the back and the minimalist pearl accents.

5. All corseted up!

The corset-bodice and full, flared skirt reminds us of 18th century European fashions - especially the French court! The wide neckline gives the jewels a chance to shine!

6. Cummerband style

It’s rare to see a proper cummerband on a cocktail gown, which is why we love this bride’s off-shoulder pink gown! The heavy broock at the shoulder means you need no wear anything else!

Now that’s what we call a skirt! If you’re style is completely super-sized, you need a gown that everyone will be talking about after the reception. And this Gaurav Gupta number delivers the drama!
