Choosing Best Bridal Designer

Choosing the right bridal dress designer and a dress style are two of the most difficult decisions that a girl ever makes. So here are some simple tips to help you make the right call.

  • Start by deciding on a budget and be open when discussing it with the chosen designer.
  • Keep an eye out for sales and designer discounts. Some designers even let you bring your own fabrics so if you can find your fabric of choice at a good price, it can make your dress more affordable.
  • When it comes to choosing the dress designer, make sure that you do your research and short-list the designers whose work is in line with what you’re looking for.
  • If you’re going for a new and affordable designer, make sure to check with their previous clients and get to know their reputation.
  • When going for the wedding dress appointment, make sure that you go early as this is the time when you and your designer will both be most fresh and energetic to come up with some great ideas.
  • When choosing a wedding dress silhouette, always keep your body shape in mind instead of blindly going for something that’s trending or looks good on a model.

How to Buy Indian Bridal Dress If You Do Not Live In India?

We can all agree on the fact that Indian designers do a tremendous job when it comes to bridal dresses. The lehenga cholis are their heritage and the way they design and stitch the outfits, it is impossible to be done in any other part of the world. Unfortunately, not all of us can visit the designers’ showrooms to witness their masterpieces and some of you might even be wondering how can you get your hands on these beautiful dresses. Well, as the task might be difficult, it is not entirely impossible. A lot of Indian designers showcase their creations in exhibitions all around the world. That is one way you can get to see their bridal dresses and pick the ones you like and place your orders. Otherwise, a number of Indian designers are very helpful and enjoy doing business with customers that live abroad. For such customers, they also take orders online.

Everything You Need to Know About Buying an Indian Wedding Dress

Before we tell you where to shop some of the best Indian wedding dresses, it’s important to understand a bit about how to shop for them in the first place. If you’ve attended more than one wedding, you’ll know nuptials can vary from couple to couple. Whether that’s due to cultural, personal or religious differences, every wedding is unique. Some cultures opt for white wedding dresses, for example, while other cultures get a bit more colourful. I spoke to Sejal Kapadia Pocha, Flare magazine’s social media editor, about her Hindu wedding, and she told me everything you’d ever need to know about shopping for an Indian wedding dress, as well as where to find the best designs. Keep scrolling for more.

First up, I wanted to know how many looks you’d wear for an Asian wedding. “It can vary depending on the religion and South Asian region you originate from,” says Sejal. “Typically you’d require two evening outfits (one pre-wedding event and one reception), one for the wedding, and perhaps two simpler options for pre-wedding rituals/events at home. So I guess that makes a total of five. I actually had six at mine.”

Sejal also talked me through the traditional colours. “On their wedding day, Hindu brides usually wear any shade of red, red and white, or red with touches of green. But many brides I know are changing this up by wearing blush pink, dark pink or maroon. Sikh wedding attire is similar to Hindu attire, but Muslim weddings are quite different, so I can’t speak for those events.”

COURTESY OF SEJAL KAPADIA POCHA

So where do you start looking for Indian wedding dresses? “Most women start looking at their local Indian stores, magazines and Indian designers online for inspiration,” says Sejal. “Designers like Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra are leaders in the wedding-outfit game, with many wholesalers creating copycat designs. Some brides choose to get their main bridal outfits in the country, whether it’s a store that imports ready-to-wear outfits from India or a local couture designer. Others decide they’d rather just go to India for a week and get their shopping done there (which is what I did).”

When it comes to preparation, Sejal recommends a least a year. “I had a long engagement, so I was planning for about a year and a half, which I felt like I needed. But most of my friends have planned theirs in nine to 12 months. A lot of venues and popular Asian wedding suppliers are booked up to a year in advance during peak times.”
