Reformation is betting that one of its wedding dresses is clearly not enough for the modern bride. The beloved eco-friendly brand launches its fall bridal collection today — its biggest collection to date — and it’s offering “second wedding dresses for post-nuptial partying.”

Beyond floor-length lace dresses, your after-party gown options at Reformation include a tiny silk slipdress and a silk two-piece number with a racerback crop top. The long and short slip dresses are made using Blue Sign Eco Silk, which Reformation says is made using safe dyes so workers aren’t exposed to harsh chemicals.

The second wedding dress trend has been around for awhile, but it’s not going anywhere, especially for brides who want a dance floor-ready little white dress as a counterpart to a giant ballgown. Almost all of the Reformation dresses ring in at under $500, so adding a second dress to your cart might not bust a wedding budget.

Here’s the line, as modeled by Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk and accessorized with pillbox hats.

Seleste dress, $448

Thea dress, $428

Gemini two-piece gown, $588

Ariel slip mini-dress, $198

The new Reformation bridal collection also includes bridesmaid dresses in off-the-shoulder, backless, and two-piece silhouettes, all in new fall colors like poinsettia, saffron, stone, and blackberry.
