Indian weddings have a charm of their own. As per the tradition the wedding is primarily organized by the bride’s family, however, the reception might be an exception. Reception ceremony is celebrated just after the main wedding day. It is the first public appearance of the newly wed couple after their marriage. The reception is usually organized by the family of the groom and is a sort of a grand party. The friends and associates mainly from the groom side attend this ceremony. From the bride side, only the close members are invited.

Hosts provide their choice of food and drink, although a wedding cake is popular.
