Wedding season is upon us and that means one thing: Royal Glamour! Your wedding day is the one day where you get to be a princess – or a prince – for a day. But what does that mean for your wardrobe?
For many of us, weddings are the one time of year when we get to dress up and feel like a princess. Whether it’s a friend’s wedding or a family member’s, we all want to look our best. The key to nailing wedding guest style is to find the right balance between formal and fun. You want to look like you’re ready to celebrate, but not like you’re trying to upstage the bride.
As important as the wedding might be, the events before and after a wedding are equally important too. They could make or break your look. A reception cocktail could be a big deal and kind of hard to dress up for. You may want to go trendy, or you may want to take the traditional route.
Whatever you decide, we’re here to cheer you and tell you you’d look stunning. To help you through the process of finding a cocktail dress for you easier, we have curated some of the best bridal wedding dresses for the reception!

The Fairy-Tale Ballgown
Now going the dreamy way and getting yourself a lehenga that will make you stand apart from the crowd is the way to go. For the princess at heart, there’s nothing dreamier than a fairy-tale ballgown. If you want to make a grand entrance, this is the style for you. Go wild with all your detailing to make your entrance grand and dreamlike.
Going the Traditional Route
Now, if you’re someone that loves your ethnic look and want to rock an outfit then adding in some traditional zaris and prints on your lehenga can be your true hero. This will make you sport a look that will make you look out of this world.
The Sleek and Sexy Gown
For our bridezillas that don’t want to go with anything close to lehenga but instead sport a sleek and sexy gown. Kudos! Because Satin has just entered the trend. A silky gown can not only add that sass but also make your evening more glamorous.
Peacock Pen Down
The Peacock pattern is one of the most infamous designs that has been adopted by brides time and again. This one is an absolute no-brainer for those not sure about what kind of bridal lehenga to opt for their reception wedding dress.
Now pairing your lehenga with some ruffles can take you a long way. This will add some character to your dress and also give you the Hollywood 90s look with some Marilyn Monroe vibes.
Embellishments can be a big thing and a cute add-on to your lehenga design. This dress can make you look out of this world. Pairing a wine-colored embroidered lehenga with cute diamond jewelry is all you need for that evening.
For a bride that does not want to settle for any pre-designed lehengas, sarees, or even blouses. Customizing it yourself can be the new norm. Getting your hands dirty and designing a lehenga from scratch can be quite an adventure. Here, you’re the boss of all the details and so there’s no room for any errors. Go Wild with this option!
Bold and Ballistic
This one is for the adventurous. If you’re someone that does not want to follow the norm and do something unique out there, then this trend is for you. Color blocking simply means wearing two bold colors to create a completely contrasting look. This could sometimes steal the show or sometimes backfire. So being mindful while designing this is essential.
