Where to go for wedding shopping in Mumbai?

Confused?

Start with setting a realistic budget for your main wedding clothes and other trousseau items and draw up a list of things that you want to purchase so you can allocate your shopping budget accordingly. One of the most important things you will purchase is your bridal outfit like the wedding sari, lehenga, gown etc. which might be a part of your trousseau. Brides to be also buy a collection of other Indian and Western outfits like salwar kameezes, dresses, saris etc. for the wedding events and other parties.

Jewellery is another important aspect of the trousseau. Brides pick up traditional wedding jewellery as well as other precious and semiprecious baubles. Accessories like shoes and bags, both matching to your wedding outfits and otherwise also form part of the collection. With so many bridal wear designers, couture stores and boutiques the choices are endless and can be confusing for a novice shopper who already has tons of things on her mind.

Whether you like your things high street or haute couture, custom made or pret, it's important to have a good mix of clothes and accessories that work well together as well as some fun items just for you.
