A gown that rounds up beautifully when you twirl is all of our dreams come true. This gown fulfils just that part and with a soft colour like baby pink, it gives an appearance that is light and breathable.

Styled in modern sensibilities, with sheer sleeves and layers of fabric as welll as an embroidered bust, this inspiration amid Indian evening gowns for wedding reception, moves with a life of its own. You can style such a set with diamond jewellery, though we think you may also try a set of floral jewellery with this piece, just to get some fairy vibes.

As Indian evening gowns for wedding reception go, this one is both tantalizing and Indian enough with a Kanjivaram/brocade backdrop and golden thread work as well as elaborate borders at the end. We love the corset-style bust and the addition of a dupatta to complete a classic, Indo-fusion look (simply take that off once you get into a dance mode though).

The piece has its formal ethos in place, which are suited for the occasion but can become playful indeed, once you want it to be so. Pair it with an elaborate bridal jewellery set, like Priyanka has done with this Polki jewellery set and shine on, baby.

3. The Velvet Wonder
