Most Sri Lankan cultural and religious traditions include a second reception following the wedded couple's honeymoon, and given by the groom's family. This is called a Homecoming, and signifies that the groom is "bringing home" a new bride. Long ago, this is what literally happened, as brides went from their homes to their groom's home when they got married. This is still done in many Sri Lankan villages and rural areas (as it also is in many parts of India, including cities), but nowadays, newly-married couples in Sri Lanka most often choose to build and live in homes of their own, even though they may reside with the groom's family until they can save enough money to do so. Grooms might also move in with their bride's family. Whatever the case might be, the Homecoming is as much a Sri Lankan wedding tradition as anything else.
Traditionally, Homecoming celebrations were held in the groom's home, but nowadays some have become as formal as weddings, themselves, and are held in hotels or reception halls. Nevertheless, Homecomings still usually have smaller guest lists than do weddings, and are just not as huge and fancy.
