Oh, the reception dress.  Should I wear one, or shouldn’t I?  Should it be long, or should it be short?  How much should I spend on it?  Undoubtedly, these are all questions that have crossed your minds.  For me, I didn’t decide to spring for a reception dress until the last few weeks before the big day.  My two musts – that it be fun, and that I be able to dance in it.  Here are a couple of my picks of great dresses that you can dance the night away in.  Get inspired!  – Tram @Phi-Style.com

Phi-Style: Met Ball 2011 Inspiration

1. Sarah Jessica Parker, Alexander McQueen | 2. Freida Pinto, Chanel | 3.  Jessica Stam, Tommy Hilfiger | 4. Ashley Greene, Donna Karan | 5. Emma Roberts, Michael Kors | 6. Naomi Watts, Stella McCartney

I love gathering wedding gown inspiration from celebrity red carpet looks.  The Costume Institute Gala, held last Monday at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is arguably the most fashion-conscious event of the year – a perfect event to snag some ideas!  This year’s ball honored the work of the late Alexander McQueen, but the event did not fail to showcase a multitude of other beautiful designer gowns.  From sheaths, to a-lines, to fit-and-flare, these looks could easily be developed into a bridal look.   My personal favorite?  Jessica Stam in Tommy Hilfiger.  What a great way to showcase a pair of fabulous wedding shoes!  – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
