The Indian culture is an absolutely stupendous one with rituals and traditions that are beautiful and heartfelt. And, one such tradition that is close to every newly-wedded wife’s heart is “pagphera”. The tradition is where the newly wedded bride is invited back to her parent's home after the wedding. This event is a celebration of love, togetherness, and the beginning of a new journey for the ethereal bride.

So, it is natural that the bride needs to choose an immaculate outfit because this is the first time she will present herself as a newly wedded wife. Scroll below to get major outfit inspiration for this special occasion!
