We think reception parties are the most fun when it comes to dressing up if you are the bride because you get a chance to get your creative juices flowing and get versatile with your ensemble. You’ve looked your traditional best for other wedding functions like roka, mehndi, sangeet and of course the wedding day, but now is the opportunity to move over those heavy-duty lehengas and look vogue in ravishing gowns for your reception night. So much less hassle with so much more oomph. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect concoction?

We spotted scores of brides carrying some of the most beautiful gowns, both on the more conservative and bold sides, that didn’t fail to make them look like anything less than a beautiful Disney princess. You’ll be wowed!
