Importance of Reception Party in Indian Weddings

The Reception ceremony is primarily an adaptation from the western culture where the bride and groom celebrate their marriage along with their families. Unlike other ceremonies in Indian weddings, the reception party doesn’t involve any traditional ritual. The Indian wedding reception party is the first ceremony the groom’s family arranges for the bride and groom post their wedding. Since this is their first public appearance together as a newlywed. This ceremony brings an end to the long festive celebrations of the Indian wedding. 

The Reception Feast

Elaborate decoration based on different colour themes, gorgeous floral decoration, cake cutting, photo sessions, dance and music make this ceremony a grand affair. As the DJ plays some romantic music for the couple, the bride and groom take over the dance floor. Following this, friends and family dance together in celebration. Nowadays, some families celebrate this get-together with all pomp and show, while some give a miss to this post-wedding celebration.
