Wedding Wardrobe: thedelhibride

Where did I get my wedding outfits from?

I’ve been asked this question many times, and I thought I’d answer it all in one go (thanks Apurva, for the idea!)

Pre-Wedding Shoot
Pre-Wedding Shoot

This pre-wedding shoot dress was from Akshar Bhan – he has a studio in Defence Colony (not the main market, the one under the Def Col flyover which has the popular store Shagun). He keeps really simple outfits – from dresses to plain lehengas and suits.

For more pictures of the pre-wedding shoot, go here.

Mehendi
Mehendi

I wore this crushed skirt with a corset on my Mehendi ceremony – both pieces are from Goldy’s Nest in M-block market, GK1. This entire outfit was super reasonable (I didn’t want to spend much because it was a home function) – just under INR 2,000. Yes, I’m sure nobody else inside my home that day was wearing an outfit as cheap as mine 🙂

To see more pictures of this outfit, go here.

Sangeet
Sangeet

I got this lehenga designed from Aumbre at Hauz Khas Village – by A&S (Astha & Siddharth). The whole outfit cost me somewhere around INR 20-22,000 (see, I’m turning out to be such a money-saving bride!) Again, I didn’t want to spend too much on an outfit that will not be re-used. I still did try to ensure it was light enough to be re-used atleast a few times. Like for when I’m a guest at a wedding. And it’s definitely appropriate for that – Astha has already re-made similar versions of this outfit for two people I know who will be wearing it to weddings they’re attending as guests.

You can read the story of how I found my sangeet lehenga here, and see more pictures of it in the posts about my Sagan and Sangeet.

I bought my wedding lehenga from Om Prakash Jawahar Lal at Chandni Chowk.

You can read about the whole tamasha that went into getting my wedding lehenga here, and if you’re more interested in just pictures and wedding day story, go here.

Reception
Reception

The reception jacket lehenga was from Rakhi & Vandana, a store in South Extension. The story of how I managed to find this spans over two posts – part 1 and part 2. You can also see more pictures from the Reception (including the crazy Photo Booth!) if you go here.

  1. This is really helpful:)

    Love the reception lehenga best. Where is Rakhi & Vandana located and around how much did this cost you? I’m yet to do my reception dress and this one is inspiring me.

    BTW, I’m a fellow-bride-to-be-blogger:)

  6. Hey! My mehendi outfit was a shorter skirt version of your sangeet outfit from Astha and Sidharth in purple and pink. Unfortunately all my mehendi photos are lost except a really hilarious one taken with a bad phone cam, but will post it soon… So happy that we had a similar something, since your blog led me to Aumbre.
    And gorgeous post wedding pics of yours on the Photo Tantra Facebook page!

  14. Hi! I love your reception and wedding lehengas. Could you please tell me the cost for the both pieces? Also, I’m thinking of getting my mother’s beautiful pink wedding lehenga restored. Any ideas where i could get that done from in Chandni Chowk?

    1. Hi Tanvi, will email the prices to you. As for getting it restored, don’t know of a place that will do that, but one thing is for sure – don’t try it from Chandni Chowk. Find an established designer who you trust to take care of your mom’s ensemble!
