Evening Dress Vs. Dinner Dress

As we have classified our coloured long gowns into Evening Dress and Dinner Dress Categories as published on our website at, we are going to talk about the fundamental difference in determining our categorization. To ease the shopping experience of our clients, this article will assist to determine what kind of event is suitable for an evening dress and likewise, for a dinner dress.

Evening Dress

If you have browsed through our evening dress collection, you will notice that most of these evening dresses are heavily beaded, more classy on its outlook and some even comes with a train. Thus, an evening dress is very much suitable if you are a Bride needing a coloured gown for your second march in during your wedding dinner banquet.

Having said that, Evening Dress is not constrain to just for Brides. If you are contesting for pageants or you are attending a gala dinner, an evening dress will be an appropriate choice to bring out more elegance in your look.

Dinner Dress

Coming back to Dinner Dress, these are more down-to-earth dress that you can wear for just any occasion like attending a wedding dinner of a friend or relative. These dinner dresses are more simple in terms of design and less bead works. Yet, with appropriate dress accessories to match, a dinner dress can also be an elegant piece to wear.

For instance, some of our clients asked; I am a mother-of-bride and my daughter’s wedding dinner banquet is going to be held at a grand ballroom in Singapore. In this situation, Cupido Gowns advise you to wear an Evening Dress as it is good for hosts to dress up a little more so that they won’t blend in with their other guests.

How to Choose an Evening Gown

Many times we were posted with this question of How to Choose an Evening Gown.  Before you decide on an Evening Gown, always ask yourself this very first question: What kind of event I am going to attend? Why is this so important that it has to be the first question of all. This will ensure that you will not be over-dressed for a casual lunch or under-dressed for a formal event.

If you are going to wear the Evening Gown for your wedding banquet, you would need a piece that is extravagant. And so, how do you find that piece? In the olden days, Brides are usually seen wearing full coloured ball gown for the evening banquet. The gowns then were usually fully beaded. Modern times, Brides deemed these type of evening gowns being too vintage to march in to the wedding hall.

At Cupido Gowns, our in-store experts would recommend an evening gown that is flowy on the outlook and adequately beaded. The flowy look will add a touch of feminine when Brides march in to the wedding hall, whilst the glitter from the bead works of the Evening Gown adds to the overall elegance. Hence, Brides will not look like a Plain Jane and will definitely stand out from the crowd.

And if you are attending a mere wedding banquet, you may do away with less bead works on the Evening Gown to ensure that you do not steal away the Bride’s limelight. Some may even ask us, what if I am attending a Black Tie Event and do you have Black Evening Gowns to offer? We always share with our clients that a Black Tie Event does not mean that you must wear Black Evening Gown.

At Cupido Gowns, we always believe that only Plain Jane wears Black. As all ladies love to doll themselves and since you will be getting an Evening Gown anyway, why do with a colour that you will blend in with other guests? Be confident and go for coloured Evening Gowns that will bring out the best in you and that’s what we would forever advise our clients.
