Kickstarted in 2017 by Anushka Sharma, a saree reception look is one of the most elegant trends our wedding industry has been blessed with. The sheer grace of a saree meeting with the gorgeousness of a newly wedded bride is something else. Without a doubt, a woman never really looks as beautiful as in the days followed by her marriage. That’s when she finally yields to her traditional side by donning bouts of Indian wear and adorning herself with ‘solah shringar’. A saree is one of the winsome attire of all Indian outfits and a combination of saree + a newly wed always has us floored.
This killer merger has been used by many brides on their reception day! And for any other beauties looking forward to carrying this saree reception look in their own style – here are 8 real brides to draw inspiration from!
Real Brides In Saree Reception Look!
#1 Bhavna’s Charming Saree Reception Look!
One of our absolute favorite brides looked like a million bucks on her reception. Right from when we first came across her wedding on Instagram, all her bridal looks have us crushing over her. We have done a full blog of her wedding as well as the reception look because that’s how much we loved her style game and we think a lot of brides-to-be can draw inspiration from her!
For her reception, Bhavna was seen frolicking around in a maroon saree with golden beads and teamed it up with a golden zero neck blouse that had an evergreen deep round cut. She styled it with a dainty gold set and her wedding choora. For the makeup, she opted for soft smokey eyes, highlighted cheeks, and a red lip!

#2 Sadhana’s Elegant Sabyasachi Benarasi Saree Reception Look!
One of the brides who went crazy viral on Instagram last year also wore a ravishing saree on her reception. Here is her bridal pic to ring some bells:
She was an absolute vision in her bridal avatar and looked every bit flawless on her reception as well. Yes, that’s the same saree as Anushka’s wedding reception. This benarasi saree is really a work of art. It took 60 days to complete and each motif was worked on separately. Considering how gracious this saree, no wonder it took so much of hard work to complete. Sadhana teamed her saree with a chunky choker set and a sleek low bun.

#3 Rutuja’s Plush Wedding Reception look in a Manish Malhotra Saree
Bride Rutuja wore an all red Manish Malhotra saree for her Mumbai reception. Like all of her other wedding looks, this one was one of a kind as well! She brought a fresh breeze to the trend by opting for a plain red saree with exquisite sequin embroidered work and a sleeveless deep neck blouse. She styled it with a beauteous braided bun done superbly by @ritikahairstylist and a diamond choker necklace.

We are crushing over her fashion game so she had to be a part of this list. For her reception, Tanya wore a silver and golden zari work handwoven saree created by her artisans at Desidhaga.
#5 Mansha Kaur’s Sophisticated Saree Reception Look!
Mansha is one of the most iconic brides ever! Her wedding images still circulate on Instagram after 2 years of the big day. And every time we see her, our hearts skip a beat. We know we have raised your expectations with these words but she truly deserves them all! After having us all floored with her sangeet and wedding outfits, she wore a ravishing red saree for her reception. It was apparently gifted to her by her MIL. And boy, can’t we see the traditional touches in this contemporary saree! We also love how she styled her saree with minimal jewellery, open hair and dewy makeup look.
#6 Bride Yuktee’s Captivating Reception Look in a Sabya Saree!
Carrying forward the charm of Sabya’s benarasi saree, bride Yuktee slipped herself into this 6 yards of elegance for her wedding reception. However, she opted for a layered rani haar kundan necklace instead of the usual choker. Giving out absolute stylish queen goals!

#7 Bride Mehak’s Enchanting Saree Reception Look & Scenic Couple Pictures!
One of the most recent brides who carried a saree flawlessly for her wedding reception, Mehak’s look is an epitome of simplicity with grace. She wore a banarasi red saree for the shenanigans and styled it with the usual floral bun and choker set. Her makeup was also fairly simple with a natural base, nude lips, and a maroon bindi. We are also in awe of the couple pictures shot with Mumbai’s scenic backdrop as the background.
