India is a country of rich culture, heritage and customs where Marriage celebrates like a ceremony. Every Indian wedding is unique in style, rituals, and customs. The traditional Bengali Wedding is one of the exemplary parts of them. Bengalis are well known for their numerous lovely wedding rituals that are covering the major portion of the wedding day. After the gloomy Bidaai of the bride, some set of rituals is done by the Groom’s family followed by a dazzling evening party which is popularly known as Reception or Bou-Vaat.
Bengali Brides always mesmerize us with their charming traditional looks, typical red Banarasi saree, stunning gold jewelry, simple forehead Kalka, a prominent red bindi, and a sweet elegant smile. On the day of her Reception, every bride wants to look like a real apsara and we, the team of TSW, the best wedding photographers in Kolkata, take all the responsibilities of making your day memorable. We are here to provide a list of stunning Bengali Bride Reception looks that can surely help you to choose your best fit.
1. Real Bengali Diva in Typical Red Banarasi Saree
The traditional Bengali bride with a typical red Banarasi saree is the most common bridal attire we have ever seen. But we have to understand a thin line between the main wedding day and the reception. A reception or Bou-Vaat is just like a grand party which is completely different from the ritualistic wedding day. So, you can try a lightly gorgeous red or maroon Banarasi with simple gold jewelry, dewy makeup looks with a small red bindi, and a pair of jasmine-garland that enhances your bridal hairstyle.
