Your Guide to Purchasing Mid-Budget Lehengas in Mumbai

By Prakruti Jhaveri

Picking a lehenga or saree for your wedding day can be a joyous yet stressful project. It requires intensive research, planning and visualization, and sometimes all this has to be worked around a budget. While India’s top designers and multi-designer stores have the most exquisite bridal collections, we often get emails from brides wanting us to recommend stores where they can buy an exquisite lehengas to suit their budget. Here, Prakruti Jhaveri, Senior Fashion and Beauty Writer at InOnIt.in, writes about thestores in Mumbai that offer interesting collections at price tags to fit different budgets.

South Mumbai

If you live in South Mumbai or are planning to make a day’s visit for wedding shopping check out the stores at Marine Lines, Kemps Corner, Kalbadevi, Colaba and Breach Candy.

For a traditional and classic style lehenga-choli you can visit stores like Roopkala, Indrani (also in Borivali) and Millionaire (also in Juhu and Malad). These stores have a huge range of apparel and accessories for the entire bridal party. Next to Indrani Silks (in Kalbadevi), there are a host of boutiques which offer lehengas in the range of Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 50,000. Most of these stores offer customization options too. At Millionaire, you may find the range going higher than Rs 30,000.

If you are looking at something more than the blushing-bride look, check out stores like Ogaan, Aza, Kimaya, Jade, Ensemble, and RE Fashion Boutique. Many of these stores have collections that start from Rs 40,000 and above, but they do offer one-of-a-kind pieces too. Lighter lehengas for the bridesmaids can be purchased here as well. While Ogaan has quirky and kitschy outfits, Kimaya and Ensemble offer a Bollywood bride look. Jade has a distinct collection of bridal outfits that reflect Indian heritage. Take a look at authentic zardosi, jamwar and other styles here.

Also, look out for their end of season sales when some of them offer discounts up to 70 per cent, and you might just find your dream outfit for a steal.

Tip: Try to look for bridal couture on sale at Ensemble and Ogaan, and you might land up with a runway outfit, which you can reuse in many different ways after your wedding.

Lower Parel

High Street Phoenix and Palladium are a shopper’s paradise; however, they offer little for the busy bride’s needs. If you are in the area, the must-visit stores include Chamomile, Anita Dongre and Mogra boutique at Phoenix mills.


Lehengas by Anita Dongre

Chamomile and Mogra offer Indian apparel for modern women who adore fashion. So, be ready to find distinct, minimalistic styles of lehengas here starting from Rs 40,000 onwards.

Tip: Visit these stores when you are out shopping for western outfits, salwaar suits or other items for your wedding trousseau, so you save time.

Juhu–Irla

The hub of designer stores, Juhu, has a plethora of alternatives for your dream wedding apparel. The forerunners amongst them all are Sushma Designs and Kimaya. These two stores are known for their unmatched designs and up-to-date trends. The latter houses niche couture designers as well as popular Bollywood designers. You might find an exquisite piece that resembles Deepika Padukone or Kareena Kapoor’s look in a film for a price starting Rs40,000 onwards.

In addition to these, you can visit Paaneri, Libas and Kala Niketan, which are comparatively less expensive than the above mentioned stores. You can also take a glimpse of rich bridal wear at individual designer stores like Manasvi Pillai and Archana Kochhar.

Round the corner from Juhu, another area that is heaven for wedding shoppers is Irla, located between Andheri and Vile Parle (West). Here, you can first visit Aishwarya Design Studios and Ella. You may then look at various other boutiques in the area. What we love about the stores here is that they have lots of options in the range of Rs.20,000 to Rs. 70,000. This area also has a host of wedding accessories and costume jewellery shops.

Tip: Visit the stores in Irla before you move to Juhu.

Santacruz and Khar

A wedding shopper’s hub, Santacruz has everything from designer wear to street side heels and more. Your top picks for THE wedding outfit should be Seasons and Kalki where you can get bridal wear at a price range of Rs 40,000 onwards. Kalki also houses the works of Sabyasachi, Neeta Lulla, Gaurav Gupta and the likes, so if you’re lucky, you might be able to get an exquisite designer piece too.


Bridal ensembles by Seasons

Along the entire market, you can also visit stores like Bawree, Pagli, Shagun, and Friendship. These stores have lehengas starting from Rs 20,000 onwards. Sagar Couture in Bandra also houses some of the finest net ghaghra-choli sets. Their designs and fabric integration is worth a look.


Bridal ensembles by Kalki

A boutique that is a must-see for the experimental bride (with a reasonably good budget) is designer Masaba’s Store. They offer quirky and creative twists to regular wedding outfits.


Quirky outfits by Masaba Gupta

Tip: Before you visit Santacruz, keep in mind a general idea of what you want. The number of options there may leave you confused.

The mentioned areas/locations cover more or less the entire range of mid-budget bridal wear options in Mumbai. Feel free to write to us, if you know of a unique, niche store that other brides may try. Also, we love the Lehenga LookBook on www.facebook.com/weddingsutra, regardless of whether or not you are getting married, this is one album all Indian fashion lovers would always love to see!

Love Actually- Akanksha Shrivastava and Adhiraj Sarmah’s Platinum Day of Love

Our new initiative- ‘Love Actually’ is a photo series featuring engaged couples who actively seek ideas and inspiration from WeddingSutra. The series celebrates the beautiful people in love as they start their lives together. Because real love can only begin, never end. Over coffee, a makeover and a photo shoot we get to-be-weds to tell us how they met, show us their platinum love bands and talk about their day of love.

Most people who are close to Akanksha and Adhiraj will agree that the couple is a classic example of the cliché – ‘opposites attract’. While Akanksha fell for his serene ways, Adhiraj was enamored by her bubbly charm. Adhiraj, a Business Development professional and Akanksha, a Strategy Consultant, met during a fellowship program in Delhi, “and we got to know each other really well while working together on classroom projects, chit-chatting for hours in the hostel corridors and practicing Tango moves in our leisure time”, says Akanksha.

Post their graduation, they moved to Gurgaon to take up their respective jobs. However, that left them with little time for each other due to their hectic schedules, so they decided to tie the knot to get more time and space in each other’s lives. Says Akanksha: “The most romantic moment for me was when he proposed to me at the Lotus Temple in Delhi. I found the spiritual ambience of the place extremely romantic and thoughtful.” Adhiraj recalls “Akanksha was really moved and couldn’t hold back her tears, while I was secretly smiling as I knew it was her way of saying ‘Yes’.”

“My parents were always fond of Adhiraj and used to drop hints of their approval every time the topic of marriage was initiated”, says Akanksha, “though it took some time for Adhiraj to convince his parents.’ However, once the families met at his native place in Assam, there was no looking back.”

Initially, there was a lot of back and forth while narrowing down on wedding dates, time and venues as there were only few dates that were auspicious for both sides. “One day the wedding date would be decided for May, and the next day the date would be shifted to June” recalls Akanksha. Finally the date was decided, 25th June and the venue, next to a beautiful lake in Bhopal.

The couple is currently busy with their wedding planning, which they feel is as exciting as is stressful. “The most exciting part of wedding planning thus far has been staying up a whole night to design our wacky invitation card, which is inspired by Bollywood and Indian kitsch art”, says Adhiraj. Adds Akanksha: “What I enjoy most is getting updated on the latest bridal fashion and wedding décor trends, I equally enjoy watching wedding films which are no less than works of art and a great source for interesting ideas”, says Akanksha. Adhiraj concludes: “Funnily enough, we have been discussing and trying to finalize our honeymoon for weeks now but we’ve been unable to freeze on one destination because every location has something unique to offer.”

If you’re getting married in 2014 and would like to be a part of ‘Love Actually’ write to us (weddingsutra@gmail.com) with the link to your FB profiles, wedding date and ‘how you met’ story. Selected couples will be invited for the shoots in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai.

Seven Couples. Seven Vows. Paromita and Dinesh

Every relationship is unique. Every marriage is special. And so are the promises that two people in love made to each other. In this series, WeddingSutra meets seven beautiful couples and discovers the promises they made to each other for the lifetime.

Paromita Kundu, a Communications Professional and Dinesh Navani, a Banker got married in December 2013 in Mumbai, here the couple talk about their union and ‘how we met’ story.

“If it’s meant to be, it will; Everything happens for a reason, and at the right time; Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans… Like every other teen, I grew up listening to these phrases, and thought they were just another set of fancy words added to the vast pool of English Literature; without realizing that one day all of this will make complete sense”…… Paromita

How we met
“I had joined a trekking group while on a sabbatical to satiate my urge to see new places and meet new people. It was during one such impromptu trip that I met my husband, Dinesh. The initial impressions were not too good for either of us, but eventually during the trip we got talking, exchanged numbers, discovered common friends, common interests and before we knew it, we were seeing each other; and eventually the romantic in him managed to bowl me over! ”

What we love and appreciate about each other
Paromita says, “I love the fact that nothing really has changed much since our marriage, we are still the ‘blissfully in love’ dating couple who now also stay together! In fact, it’s nearly four months now since we got married and it still seems like a never-ending vacation for me; so much so that I forget at times that I am actually married! It’s like the best of all worlds, I get to share my life with the one I love, without any undue pressures or obligations; it’s all the same with an added assurance and constant support. It’s this undying support and unconditional love which I appreciate the most! I’m a daddy’s girl who grew up idolizing my dad and believed that no one could love me, pamper me and support me as much as him. Though my dad will always be my first hero, my husband is almost at par! It takes a very secure man to let his woman be the way she is, without altering anything about her. The fact that he understands every small thing about me and does everything possible to make me feel special, always, is something which I love and appreciate the most! I sometimes feel he has had a sneak peek at the list of things I had in my mind for my soul-mate!”

Dinesh being a man of few words, adds few profound words for his partner. “I have always admired her honesty. She won’t shy from calling a spade a spade, which eventually is difficult for some people to digest initially, but it was something I loved from the very start. I always wanted my partner to be honest to me about everything, someone with whom I could share everything and expect an honest feedback and I’m glad to have found that in her. Also her caring nature is something that always leaves me amazed. No matter how tired or angry she may be, she will do her best to ensure the comfort of people around her. She will do small things to ensure the little joys of life, something which I love the most!”

Love, Life and Marriage
Paromita says, “Marriage to us was always about companionship. Our families got extended with our alliance and I got a lifelong companion; with whom I can chat forever, annoy every day, act silly with, speak about everything under the sun, travel with, laugh with, cry with and fall back on every time I goof up!”

Dinesh says: “Marriage is about love, trust, togetherness and happiness. We have simple expectations from each other and from our marriage. We are friends first and a spouse later; and both of us always ensure that come what may, we keep the bond of friendship alive. Marriage was just another step together to deepen our bond, to strengthen our friendship and seal it for a lifetime”

What we look forward to
We look forward to each new day and most of all we look forward to growing old in each other’s company. Life’s too short to be anything but happy and we want to cherish each moment of our lives together.

With WeddingSutra on Location- Prachi Patil

As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Tarun Tahiliani’s couture studio in Colaba, Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.

Here in the last of the four-part series, bride-to-be Prachi Patil, blogs about her experience with WeddingSutra on Location.

“I had visited the WeddingSutra Facebook page last year when one of my closest friends was getting married so I knew this would be my go-to guide too, I got engaged recently and since the last few weeks I have been visiting the page almost every day. I was talking about WeddingSutra on Location with Photographer Seema Choubey who photographed my Engagement. She motivated me to write to WeddingSutra and to my pleasant surprise I received an invitation to WeddingSutra on Location.

On the day of the shoot I walked in to the studio with mixed emotions- I was excited yet a little nervous. But as soon as I entered the studio, I saw happy and smiling faces, and my nervousness disappeared. I was first shown the bridal lehenga options, and with Team WeddingSutra’s help I chose a red color bridal lehenga. After which we paired it with a heavy jewellery set.

Next, came the most important thing- my makeup & hairdo. I have long and very straight hair and always thought that styling my hair is just impossible. I told Ojas’s team the same, and they took it up as a challenge to give me a completely different look. As I saw the final result, and Ojas’s finishing touch to my hair and makeup, it was like a miracle! The makeup was classy and subtle and my hair was styled with soft curls, which actually stayed much longer than I expected! Hats off to Ojas and her team!

Finally, it was time to get clicked by Photographer Shreya Sen. I am really moody when it comes to clicking pictures, but Shreya made me feel comfortable and special with her talk and comments which actually made it fun. She showed me some of the pictures, and seeing them motivated me to continue posing.

I am so glad WeddingSutra on Location happened to me! Everyone I met that day made me feel special, thank you team WeddingSutra!”

Wedding Venue Hot Spots: Swati Recommends Shutters (Santa Monica) and Tote on the Turf (Mumbai)

Swati and Adam live and work in Dubai. Swati grew up in Dubai, and Adam moved there four years ago from California. Swati is a Lawyer, and a mutual friend from work introduced both of them when Adam needed legal advice. A couple of months later they met again, and since then they’ve never looked back.

Swati writes about about their wedding festivities in California, Dubai and Mumbai:

Wedding Venue
We wanted to get married outside Dubai so we decided to host it in California, where Adam grew up. We chose a beautiful boutique hotel called Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. The place was perfect, as the hotel was right on the beach of the Santa Monica pier. We held a Reception dinner at Shutters immediately after.

After this, we had two post-wedding receptions, one was held in Dubai where my family resides, and the second and our finale event was in Mumbai, so I could celebrate with my cousins, relatives and friends who live in Mumbai and within India.

Post Wedding Celebration in Mumbai
In Mumbai, we hosted our Reception in Tote on the Turf. I had been to Tote on previous visits to Mumbai, and absolutely loved it, so I didn’t consider any other venue. Adam had never been to Mumbai, but he too loved the venue when he saw it a few days prior to the event.

My friend Hemal Solanki Bhagwat who runs Mumbai-based Weddings by Mercury helped by pointing me towards the right photographer and getting the initial venue information, and that bit of early planning helped a lot.

Wedding Planning
In the US, the hotel needed me to have an on-the-day planner. I picked Dianne Greenberg who used to work for Shutters and retired from there. She was invaluable. While I was picking and talking to vendors myself, I did it all from Dubai, and it was very useful to have someone on the ground to make a phone call or clarify something if required. Amy Sparks and Imelda, who both work together, did my make-up & hair. The cake was from Jamica’s Cakes, and the flowers from Ninfa’s Flowers. The DJ was Red Con from Scratch Weddings. I had two photographers- Salvatore Soria of Soria Weddings for the main event and Christina Lopez who covered the Wedding and Reception too.

Overall, I found it very easy to find and manage all the vendors in the US. Responses were usually quick, and all questions were answered. Planning a wedding from so far away and arriving in LA the week before was daunting but things were extremely smooth.

We didn’t hire a planner in Mumbai, because we were hosting one function only. However, coordinating with the venue in Mumbai wasn’t as smooth as it was in the US. Luckily, my friends helped by stepping in, but it was a lot of back and forth. I would recommend having a good planner for a wedding in India, even if it is a small celebration.

Advice for To-Be-Weds
- Don’t believe all the hype. Your wedding doesn’t have to be like everyone else’s. Be true to what you want and like, and that will go a long way in making it the happiest day of your life.
- Ask your friends and family who are in the same city, it makes things easier.
- Most importantly, have fun! And eat!

Natasha and Tom’s Long Distance Wedding- held in Bangalore

Natasha, an Indian American and Tom from England first met at a bus stop when they were travelling from London to Oxford. Natasha was a graduate student at Oxford University and Tom was working as a Technical Director for a Digital Security Company. They started chatting at the bus stop and got to know each other well during their hour long journey from home to Oxford. They kept in touch thereafter and one year after they first met, Tom proposed to Natasha.

Natasha shares her journey in planning her multi-cultural wedding in Bangalore.

Why Bangalore
Our wedding was celebrated over a period of three days, from January 3 through January 5, 2014. We decided to host the wedding in India because most of our family lives in India and it was difficult for them to travel to the West. We chose Bangalore for various reasons- it is a cosmopolitan city with a lot of history, architecture and culture, it is also the greenest city with a very pleasant climate and easy to get to by air, train and road. We had guests coming from all parts of world- Hawaii, North America, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East as well as within India from New Delhi to Chennai and in between.

The Wedding Planner
Me and Tom traveled to Bangalore three times during the course of our wedding planning- we had to coordinate the wedding between three continents so a wedding planner was a must. We made a decision on the planner a five months before the wedding date, but unfortunately our experience with the planner was not okay, and when we realized things were not working out we decided to terminate the contract and look for another planner. In December i.e. one month before our big day, we hired Bangalore-based wedding planners Divya and Vithika. It was incredible how quickly they understood our needs and put all the logistics together including classical music for the ceremony, band baaja and ghodi, safawalas, henna artists, make-up artists, videographer, welcome bags etc. Though we were having a traditional Indian wedding, there were many Western elements like an assigned seated dinner that Divya and Vithika helped us plan. They did an amazing job in making the planning process as easy and painless as possible.

Wedding Festivities
The wedding celebrations kicked off with a very English style Hi-Tea reception by the pool side of ITC Windsor. This was a great opportunity for us to introduce the guests to our families. This was followed by Sangeet in the evening – at the Regency Hall of the same hotel. The theme for the Sangeet was Rajputana. The decor was in bright colors of Rajasthan. The girls wore bandhini lehengas and the men had pink and bandhini safas.

The next day, the Mehendi ceremony took place on the Prince of Wales lawn at the Taj West End. The lawns were decorated with Moroccan lamps, carpets and poufs. While me and some of our other guests were getting our henna done in the morning, Tom and his friends, and my family played a bride’s side versus groom’s side cricket match on the Bangalore University grounds. The same evening we had a Rehearsal Dinner at the Bangalore Club.

Next was the Wedding day. All our guests gathered at the Taj West End on a beautiful Sunday afternoon for the baraat, which came from the back entrance of the Taj to the Prince of Wales Lawn. The focal point of the ceremony was the mandap adorned with abundant fresh flowers, crystals and pearls. The aisle created for our entrance to the mandap was draped with champagne color fabric accentuated with abundant orchids, hydrangeas and crystals to match my ivory and purple lehenga. Background music with live sitar, tabla and flute complimented the ambiance.

The Nikkah ceremony on the Prince of Wales Lawn was followed by a seated dinner in the Queen Victoria Ballroom, which was completely transformed from the original purple color to traditional red and gold. The entrance to the ballroom was lined with rose petals and traditional Urlis. Upon arrival, the guests received metal handicraft Bidri boxes filled with nuts and sweets, a reminder of their time in India and the memorable celebration which they were a part of.

Advice for couples getting married in India
- If you’ve always lived in the West, and are getting married in India, getting things done might seem difficult or different. We realized it when we started talking to vendors– we felt they were giving an answer they’d like us to hear rather than the truth. So try to make atleast two trips, talk to the vendors freely so you are able to get some clear responses.
- Organize detailed itineraries for the events so everyone knows what is happening when.
- Delegate tasks to others. You do not want to be stressed with superfluous stuff on your wedding day!

Veyobox- Capture Memories, Together. Create the most Comprehensive Wedding Album.

Veyobox, a new iOS app/website that has just been launched last month, is an easy and user-friendly platform that allows you to collaboratively capture, find, re-live, and share special moments and wedding memories with your family and friends. With adding your selected people as collaborators, they can access the shared data from their iPhone or their computer using the Veyobox website. They can also upload their own pictures, videos and more, helping you to create the most comprehensive wedding album.

The Veyobox collection can also be a live stream where someone who couldn’t make it to the wedding can look at it as the wedding is going on. Instead of having islands of moments scattered in various places, Veyobox lets you manage them in one single product.

K.Anand, a groom-to-be who’s tying the knot soon, is all set to use Veyobox for his wedding. He says, “As you think about the special moments in life, the first thing that comes to mind are the pictures of those occasions. However, as we search our computers or online sources, we realize that finding the picture we are looking for and sharing it with relevant people requires rummaging through hundreds of files. I loved Veyobox because it addresses this specific need- allowing photos to be tagged on different parameters and making them easy to sort, identify, share, collaborate and access on multiple devices.”

To try the Veyobox app on an iPhone (also installs on iPads):
1. Download the FREE app from iTunes
2. Login: ‘demowedding@veyobox.com’. Password: demo123. Or you can create your own account

The web version of the app offers all the same functionalities. To use the web version:
