Bridal Outfit Ideas: Reception

The reception ceremony is celebrated just after the main wedding day of the couple. It is the first ever public appearance of the newlywed’s after their marriage. The wedding reception is usually organized by the family of the groom and is a grand entrance for both the couples. The friends and family members mainly from the bridegroom side attend this awe-inspiring ceremony. From the bride side, only close family members are invited to be the part of this happy moments. Lavish food, good music, and ambiance will add more excitement to the party zest. Unlike all other ceremonies, the reception does not include any rituals and customs. The celebration of this reception ceremony will totally depend upon the whims and fancies of the groom’s side.

Here are a few outfits that can be worn for reception

Half Saree
This is worn the most by girls in south India. But for the wedding reception why not wear it in a glam way. The bride can wear mustard and pink embroidered lehenga set which is high in trend. The silk fabric adds vibrant ness to the outfit. You could accessorize this look with kundan jewellery. Proper fit will make the fabric look exquisite.

Ethnic gown
Empire line dress/ gown silhouettes with ethnic impressions are what brides these days are willing to go for. The runway designers such as Anita dongre, Anamika Khanna and Sabyasachi are all putting these ideas in their looks and thus creating magical dress with indian weaves. Of Course, you don’t have to always choose designer stuff if you don’t want to, but why not get a custom-made design. All you will need is inspirations and a trusted tailor. Because of the heavy work on the dress you can go subtle with the accessories.

So while you don the traditional kanjeevaram silk for the muhurtham, why not have a little fun in eclectic designer saree for the reception? Zardozi and heavy work border saree worn with sheer sleeved blouses is the modern form of the traditional saree which is very popular with brides this season. Minimal jewels and makeup will make the clothes stand out.
