After the wedding, the newbie bride has to prep herself for the reception. Unlike the wedding day where the bride is supposed to be decked in heavy ethnic attire, she can give those bulky outfits a miss and opt for something a bit more comfortable. Gowns are gaining favour from young brides who want to experiment with their trousseau and yet look nothing less than a vision. With designers shifting their focus on the same, the long elegant dress is catching up fast with the mainstream lehenga to become the hot favourite among brides. Gowns give you plenty of scope to experiment and choose from. You can either opt for classic ones or edgy ones, depending on what suits your tastes.
