10 celebrity-inspired receptionlooks for the Indian bride
1. Anushka Sharma’s red and gold Benarasi saree
Embracing the traditional bridal reception look, Anushka Sharma looked like a million bucks in a vermilion Benarasi saree by ace designer Sabyasachi. A celebrity reception look that wrapped tradition, elegance, and power in one single outfit, Anushka was a new-age bride grounded in her roots. If you decide to go the traditional route like Anushka, the bold red bindi, dainty mogras in her hair, and a classic drape for your Indian reception look are a potent choice.
2. Deepika Padukone’s dramatic red gown
Not your everyday celebrity reception look, Deepika Padukone's Zuhair Murad red gown gives all kinds of modern bride goals. A statement silhouette with a sheer veil, matching red heels that you can later swap for comfortable kicks, and a trail so long that you’ll have your very own red carpet.

3. Soha Ali Khan’s pretty pink lehenga
Soha Ali Khan’s pink brocade lehenga with a matching dupatta and gold blouse reflects the star’s bubbly personality. Paired with a ruby set including necklace, earrings and a statement maang tikka, Soha’s simple yet stylish reception look is a solid ten.
4. Sagarika Ghatge’s subtle gold lehenga
When actress Sagarika Ghatge married cricketer Zaheer Khan, like Virat-Anushka they had two receptions. For her Mumbai reception look, the star chose a soft ivory Banarasi silk lehenga by Sabyasachi and heavy jadau jewellery. A grandeur of a reception look often lies in the simplicity yet complexity of the fabric and colour. If you love all things minimal, Sagarika’s subtle makeup and neat bun are ones to take cues from.
5. Mira Rajput Kapoor floral lehenga
Are you on the hunt for a modern look for wedding party? Mira Rajput Kapoor’s ivory and blue Manish Malhotra lehenga are perfect for summer reception parties. Embellished with hand-woven embroidery, and a pearl-studded crop top for a blouse, the lehenga is every minimalistic lover’s top choice.
6. Asin Thottumkal's simple but classy reception look
Asin’s elegant Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga is an ideal wedding reception look for brides who like to keep things simple and classy. With just the perfect amount of bling and flair, Asin’s easy reception look is something we would love to try. Paired with statement diamond jewellery, slick side-parted hair, and rosy lips, this versatile pastel look from 2016 is an evergreen choice for Indian brides.
7. Priyanka Chopra in lovey lilac
A celebrity reception look that left us drooling was Priyanka Chopra’s Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla embroidered ensemble in lilac. After donning a vibrant red bridal look, this refreshingly soft hue for the reception was feminine but bold. The intricately embroidered full-sleeve blouse glistened under her net dupatta as she gracefully glided through the night.
8. Bipasha Basu’s gold look
Another Sabyasachi celebrity reception look that won hearts was Bipasha Basu’s ivory and gold number. Featuring delicate embellishments and an embroidered sheer jacket over the blouse and skirt, Bipasha’s muted gold look is a classic reception look. The emerald layered necklace, big red bindi, and sindoor add a pop of colour to her nude look.
9. Hazel Keech Singh in navy
When actor Hazel Keech married Indian cricketer Yuvraaj Singh it made headlines. Unlike other newly married women, Hazel opted for a stunning peacock-inspired gottapatti hand-embroidered lehenga by designer JJ Valaya. She swapped her traditional jewellery with statement earrings and kept a nude makeup look with loose voluminous curls.
