Your wedding reception look needs to be given as much importance as your wedding look. Wedding receptions are generally the last event of your wedding celebrations and are equally important. The bride’s look should be stunning and elegant to steal the attention of everyone when she steps into the wedding hall.
Every bride aspires to look the best and tries to wear as unique as possible. Sarees have always been the preference of the majority of the Indian brides at their wedding or reception parties. While some opt for traditional banarasi or kanjeevaram sarees, others prefer designer sarees.
Some saree designs resurface every season, while fresh designs are added to the wedding collection.
This season we have seen a drastic change in prints, color palette, and embellishments. Celebrating the elegance of a six-yard saree, we present to you a list of 10 reception saree ideas for your upcoming wedding reception.
