Reception Fashion For The Family


Those who know Indian weddings know the whole gamut of ceremonies and the whole bustle around the multiple-day extravaganza. While we all know what we’d like to wear for all the traditional ceremonies, not so for the reception party. Marked in flamboyance, the reception is usually the last wedding function. The fashion apt for this function is western or indo-western gowns or flowy, flirty Georgette Sarees. Read more as we take this topic further.

Titles are changed and this is your first function post-wedding. This is the time to channel your inner maharani and let them know the fashionable side of you. From Low-key dressing to flamboyance, you pick your take depending on the kind of function and what you’d like to wear. 

The bride has ample room to choose between wearing a saree or lehenga. The versatility of a Sarees as a drape lies in the imagination of the wearer. It is one attire that fits any mood and occasion. Lehengas are the best bet for the new bride, and No I am not talking about the traditional ones. Designer ones with a modern twist will do the trick. You can also opt for really dressy floor-length gowns or kurtas to things minimal while still at the center of focus. Find a pair of heeled footwear (preferably wedges) that goes easy on your feet as you’d be standing for the longest hours. 

Dulhe ki saaliyon and Dulhan ki nanadon (now officially you are!) hara dupatta is no more a must. You could experiment between lehengas, sarees, and floor-length Kurta sets as well. Sequin sarees are an easy way to assert your important position as JiJaji ki SIL. A soft georgette or net embroidered monochrome lehenga is yet another way to get the effect. Pastels and blush colors are trending this shaadi season so are printed lehengas. Make the most of it by investing in one. Another investment worth every dime is a good and comfortable pair of stilettos under these and a Potli bag or a metal bag to accompany.

Well, bhabhi (from both sides) you are being noticed too. And it is the time for you to slay being the important link. Look elegant in a banarasi saree with a designer blouse or a fashionista in this slinky, strappy leheriya lehenga, that’s so ethnic while having the contemporary touch. If you are fond of sequins or prints we have lehenga options for you in that too. And interestingly embroidered lehenga with contrast blouse is worth trying too. Slay. Coz you cannot underplay the style game.

Dulhan ki saheliyon, you secretly know that the spotlight is upon you. Go, prepared girl! Embroidered designer salwar suitsgeorgette lehengas, and the mirror work lehenga all-over, worn with maangteeka will mark you out of the crowd. Do not over-depend on the maangteeka alone and sport a nice Batwa bag along to complete the look.

Mothers from both sides who are welcoming a member in their household with this function, we have you covered too. You may want to wear a lehenga or a saree that drips elegance. A kanjeewaram saree or a banarasi would do the trick, while an embroidered sequence saree is a safe bet too. The mom’s fashion scene is increasingly evolving, as a lot of moms are ready to try new looks.

With all the celebrations an Indian wedding is fun to attend. Dressing right for the occasion is the key to being able to enjoy each moment. Dresses should be comfortable and allow movement as it is common to burst into impromptu dancing and a lot of running around if you are the immediate family.
