The wedding reception is one of the most important functions, after a marriage. As a married couple, the newlyweds meet and greet family and friends, for the first time, on this gala event.
Naturally, the new bride has impressions to make and friendships to forge. It is her first formal outing in her in-laws’ home. There are guests who she may be meeting for the very first time – before she properly embarks on her wedded life’s life-long journey.
So many firsts! Indeed, a lot goes into planning for reception – clothes included.
And, all said and done, the wedding reception is the bride’s day. She has to sparkle, scintillate and shimmer – and also look demure, classy and impressive. Looking over-the-top, or out of tune with the groom’s style and the reception theme is not an option too!
Given all these requirements, the wonder ensemble - sarees are the most picked and loved choice of Indian brides for their wedding reception. The reception saree they choose should have all the aforementioned attributes, besides being comfortable, easy to carry/ drape and latest in fashion.
Can a new bride afford to wear an old style? Classy and traditional, yes, but outdated, no!
