As has become something of a royal tradition, both Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank changed for their wedding reception following their royal wedding ceremony last month. For the evening celebration, which was held at Royal Lodge, Princess Eugenie swapped her gorgeous wedding gown for a blush tone draped gown designed by Zac Posen.

This week, the designer shared behind-the-scenes photos of Eugenie's reception dress, giving fans a first glimpse of the back of the gorgeous gown. The photos reveal the gown's plunging back, in addition to showing the romantic draping and train. The low cut on the back of the dress was similar to the style of Eugenie's first wedding dress, a choice the bride made to show off her scoliosis scar.

The Palace revealed the gown was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the countryside. The color of the dress reflects the blush shade of an English rose. Posen was specifically inspired by the White Rose of York. “It was an incredible honor to create this dress for HRH Princess Eugenie on her wedding day," Posen said of the design in a press release. "Her grace, elegance and strength perfectly embody everything I could hope for in a woman wearing our design." Posen was also a guest at Eugenie and Jack's wedding ceremony.

The dress wasn't the only change for the bride on her royal wedding day. Eugenie also took off her tiara for the evening event, and redid her hair in sleek blowout with soft waves. Eugenie did add a piece of jewelry to her hair for the evening reception: a hair slide that belongs to the Queen. The bride wore one of Queen Victoria’s wheat-ear Brooches, which were originally commissioned by William IV in 1830 for Queen Adelaide. They've been worn by the Queen on a number of occasions.

Much like his bride, Jack Brooksbank has also put on something new. He ditched his traditional morning suit in favor of a sleek tuxedo. In the portrait released by the Palace, which was taken by Alex Bramall at Royal Lodge, Eugenie is beaming at her new husband.

Eugenie and Jack's royal wedding ceremony and afternoon lunch, which was hosted by the Queen, were quite formal, but the evening reception was a much more relaxed affair. Hosted by Eugenie's parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, at her childhood home, Royal Lodge, the party reportedly had a "festival and funfair" theme, complete with rides, food stalls, and "a festival vibe" according to the Sunday Times.
