Reception Attire - Flamboyant Lehenga or Rich designer saree?

              When it comes to the reception attire , the modern South Indian brides prefer a Lehenga or a heavy worked designer saree.This dress brightens the stage along with the decors.The important part in a lehenga is draping of the dupatta.There are many styles of draping, but please make sure that you have 2 to 3 trials of your Lehenga dress.

Before the reception , take ample time to get ready. As the draping of the dupatta requires some skills, (Lehengas for the reception are only being used in the south during recent years) be sure that you take a trial along with your stylist. Sufficient time to dress up will make you feel confident and also give you a tension free smile on the stage.

There are different types of Lehenga which fits different type of  body.

1.A-line Lehenga

2.Fish style or Mermaid cut Lehanga

3.Panel Lehenga

4.Straight Cut Lehenga

5.Circular or Flared Lehenga

1.A Line Lehenga :

In this style, the skirt flares from the waist to the hem resembling the alphabet A. It has a little flare and will fit thin as well as pear shaped brides

2.Fish style or Mermaid cut Lehanga

This style is fitted till the knee and then flares out to the bottom. It fits well on the hips and is hence recommended for women with a curvaceous or an hourglass figure. It is also known as a mermaid lehenga as it resembles the tail of a mermaid

 3.Panel Lehenga

Whether it’s a fishtail or an A-Line cut lehenga, organized panel designs elongate the body for a structured, refined look. Classic contrasting colors like green and red accentuate the simple elegance of the panelled embroidered paisley and floral motifs.A panel-styled lehenga is flattering, providing the right amount of flare.


Straight Cut Lehenga:

The straight cut lehenga is very body fitting in nature. The silhouette has a narrow shape that flows straight down with little to no flare. The straight cut lehenga is most suitable for lean and petite body types, as it tends to hug the body, showing off every curve.A ruler-shaped woman is someone who has an upper and lower torso that is equal in width with an average bust, an undefined waist, a flat buttock and slender legs. A straight cut lehenga that resembles a wrap-around skirt is advisable for straight-figured women.  Choose a choli with a neckline that falls below the collarbone so as to give your upper torso an elongated look.

5.Circular or Flared Lehenga:

Circular Lehenga Cholis are ankle length long pleated lehenga held around the waist. The lehenga is graceful and flares around the wearer.Traditionally, all Circular lehengas were lehenga type umbrella shaped. 

This type of Lehenga best suits a cone-shaped woman (exactly opposite of a pear-shaped one, with a broader top and a narrower bottom)  Hence, balancing both the parts in the right way is the trick. Choosing a flared or a circular lehenga which has a large circumference along with lots of pleats near the waist is the best option. Keep the choli not too ornate with preferably a plunging neckline.


           Getting the right look on your Big -day depends on a lot of factors. Choosing the right lehenga is just one of them... yeah, one of the most important ones! Understand your body type and make your choice wisely.

Heavily Embellished Designer Sarees:

      An alternative outfit for the reception attire is the heavily embellished designer saree. If you are not too comfortable with a Lehenga, you can try one of those Lehenga sarees or a heavily embellished designer saree.

  There are a lot of choices when it comes to the bridal designer saress.They come in all
fabrics from silk,net,satin,crape,brocade heavily embellished with Kundan,Zari,Stones,Aari 
and Resham work.These sarees can also be worn in future when you attend family weddings 
or functions. 
Designer sarees can suit women of any shape and can accentuate their beauty.


               You can buy the bridal Lehengas either through online or from a physical store.

For online shopping , try 

1.Seasons India (www.seasonsindia.com) - Wide variety and choice of exclusive bridal lehengas and sarees , Mumbai

2.Aishwarya Design Studio (www.aishwaryadesignstudio.com) , Mumbai

3.Samyakk (www.samyakk.com) , Bangalore

4.Utsav Fashion (www.utsavfashion.com

5.Cbazaar (www.cbazaar.com) , Chennai , USA 

    If you are living abroad and dont have enough time before wedding in India , you can prefer ordering online. Normally it takes anywhere between 4 to 8 weeks for making the Lehenga for an online order.But you can choose from ready to ship options also.But give yourself sufficient time for deciding and ordering the outfit.Slight variation in colours is possible, so please clarify the colour before ordering .Make sure you give correct measurements  and delivery  of the dress atleast before a month. Remember to take 2 or 3 trials before the wedding day.

    However  I prefer  buying saree or Lehenga in store where you can physically feel the warmth and style of the fabric embellished with beautiful stones.

Wedding shopping is the best part of your life and  you can choose whatever you want and tend to re discover the diva in yourself.

Few shops in chennai where you can find Bridal lehangas and sarees are ,

1.Moksha world  (http://www.mokshaaworld.com)

2.Anita Dongre (www.andindia.com)

3.Studio saks (http://www.studiosaks.com) , you can find most of the designer wear here.

The above shops are high street designers store and may be expensive and consuming major part of  your budget on clothing alone.

   But if you are looking for a stylish lehenga within  budget , then you can try NVY studio(you can custom make one ) , Sri Krishna collections,Sri Kumaran silks and Pothys boutique , all in T nagar , Chennai
