Every bride-to-be is obsessed with her bridal attire. She leaves no stone unturned to get her dream wedding outfit.
Everything from the choice of garment to colour and silhouette is pre-decided in her mind, all thanks to the myriad of ideas one gets from the internet, movies and social media platforms.
A bride-to-be makes sure she conducts market surveys, checks online retail portals and even looks at customised designer bridal wear as per her desire. And why not, as every bride dreams about getting married in her princess-like attire since her childhood days.
What affects a bride's decision the most though is the cost of bridal wear. Everyone knows Indian bridal dresses have a starting range but the cost can go as high as your pocket allows. There is no price bar when it comes to Indian bridal wear. The heavier the embroidery work, the higher its price. Also factors like quality of fabric and craftsmanship play vital role in cost estimation of the garment. So, let’s jot down some pointers that can be helpful while deciding on the expense of Indian wedding clothes.
Before you start hunting for your bridal wear, make sure you have a particular budget. Once you decide on your budget, just stick to it and find suitable garment that matches your budget. Chances are that you might be tempted by a dress which is beyond your pre-decided expenditure limit but you have to make sure you don’t burn a hole in your pocket by falling for it. Even if you are going for customised designer wear, don’t forget to inform your designer beforehand about your expense limit. Ask your designer or store, to make adjustments in terms of fabric and workmanship to suit your requirements.
Once you are done with the budget, next step is to choose your bridal outfit. Indian brides have ample choices to pick from. Whether you opt for a stunning lehenga-choli, bridal anarkali or a gorgeous bridal saree, don’t forget that you have a budget to stick to. A good designer lehenga would cost you between INR 200000-600000. If your budget lies between this range, you can choose a bridal lehenga by none other than Manish Malhotra, couture master Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Anita Dongre and many other talented designers.
If you are opting for a designer wedding saree, keep your options open within the price range of INR 100000-500000. For other functions like the sangeet ceremony, and reception, you have a variety of outfits like anarkali, Indo-western dresses and formal evening gowns. As far as your trousseau is concerned, you can have a mix-match of both designer and non-designer outfits. This will not only help you to stay in your prescribed budget but also open up avenues of having a huge variety in your closet.
Once you are sorted with your budget and choice of garment, you are all set to rock your big fat Indian wedding with oomph and grace.
