The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Shopping in Meherchand Market

23 Dec Meherchand Market Wedding Shopping Guide | thedelhibride.com

Ever so often, I will stumble upon a fascinating new store online, and what do I find? It’s located in Meherchand Market. Bang next to Lodhi Colony, this market has been around for a long time, but it’s only over the last few years that designer boutiques, both big and small, have cropped up alongside cute hangout cafes. Suddenly, it’s a nice spot to shop for your wedding, minus the crowds of more popular markets such as South Ex.

But no one really knows too much about Meherchand market. Ask a Delhi-ite what are the best stores to shop at, and they are likely to wrinkle their foreheads trying to remember that one name someone told them about recently. So, of course, I knew I had to put all the brides’ questions to rest. This is an all you need to know guide to wedding shopping in Delhi’s Meherchand market.  Continue reading

Where to Buy Floral Jewellery in Delhi

10 Dec Where to buy floral jewellery in Delhi - floral jewelry for the bride on her Mehendi

Floral jewellery has been around for a couple of years. It has been many a brides’ go-to-accessory for the Mehendi ceremony, and I’ve been wondering lately what sparked the trend. Did brides want something unique to adorn themselves with, or was it a matter of finding a lower budget accessory?

Either way, it’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, and considering how popular it is, it’s surprising how little is known about where to find it and whom to get it made from. Continue reading

The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Shopping in South Ex

Everything you needed to know about Wedding Shopping in Delhi’s famous South Ex market

Ask anyone in Delhi - which are the best markets in Delhi to do some bridal shopping - and South Extension is guaranteed to be in their top 3 list. But if you’re not familiar with the market, shopping at South Ex for the first time as a bride can be an overwhelming experience.

Aunties and relatives will give you their own version of “beta you must shop at this store” and suddenly you have a list of 20 stores to visit, and no clue about what the specialty of each store is. You will head into the market on Day 1 expecting to get everything done in a single visit, and realise after 7 visits that there are still a dozen more shops on your list and you’re nowhere near completing your trousseau shopping!

Well, calm down already. I have lost count of how many times I’ve been to South Ex for bridal shopping - either for myself or a friend or a cousin, and after years of “wedding research”, I’ve put together the most extensive list I could possibly put together in a single post.

TDB Loves: Shahpur Jat’s Abhinav Mishra & His New Collection

9 Sep Abhinav Mishra 2015 new collection at AZRA

I spotted a lehenga online last year, and it stopped me in my (digital) tracks. It was everything I always look for in a lehenga - light, pretty, and reasonably priced. And it was marked as an Abhinav Mishra design. Who is Abhinav Mishra? And why hadn’t I heard of him?

A quick Google check showed his store was located at Shahpur Jat. Interesting, I thought, that there are still stores in Shahpur Jat I don’t know about. I’ve kept track of his work for over a year now, and watched him produce outfit after outfit that I’ve loved. Consistently. I wasn’t surprised when Pernia’s Pop Up Shop introduced his designs to their online store in June this year. In fact, it gave me the confidence to start recommending him to brides. Getting listed on Pernia’s, after all, is a mark of approval on a designer’s quality.

Last Friday, I finally made my way into his Shahpur Jat store to look at the clothes in person, and see if it lives up to the hype that has had a whole year to build up in my head.

thedelhibride on the four coolest markets in Delhi for your bridal fix

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.

So just calm down, women. I’m not going anywhere! I’m just gathering enough “data” to give you better and better posts!

Delhi’s Hottest Bridal Makeup Artists

I’m back!

Pukka. Permanently. Properly.

I’ve missed you guys!!! Yes, I know you’ve sent me many emails, left comments here and Facebook-ed me. Will get through all of it slowly but surely over the course of the next week.

While I was gone, one of the posts I wrote for eStylista got published. And it’s something you’ll hopefully find really useful -  a list of the best MUAs in Delhi! My opinion, obviously.

I’m helping someone out with their roka preparation at the moment (how many of you are getting engaged/married this April?! Seems like it’s going to be heavy wedding month!) and we actually referred to this list to finalise her MUA! So it’s officially been tried and tested, and will hopefully help you find your bridal MUA!

Here’s the link to the post -
