    1. Don’t be nervous. It’s going to be the BEST day of your life – enjoy every moment from today. Take a deep breath every time it seems overwhelming, you’ll be able to feel the happiness a lot more if you just breathe. Otherwise it will pass by in a blur. Seriously, remember to breathe deep and take it all in 🙂 Btw, I can’t find your blog?

    1. Hi Bhawna, thank u! Yes, Shahpur Jat is a good place to start. You should check out Lyra there for sure. They have pretty anarkalis and specially lehengas that are light – good for reception and Sangeet/engagement days. You can also try Aumbre and Dolly J at Hauz Khas. What’s your budget for the lehengas?

            1. I have been hearing a lot of people say that OPJL have a starting range of 60K. Having been to that store recently, I can say that isn’t so. I just got back from India and went to a lot of different stores in search for my outfits but in the end I thought that I got the best value for my money at OPJL. I ended up getting my sangeet, wedding, and reception outfit from that store. I think they have some snobby salesmen that are telling people that they only sell lehengas over 60K but I was shown some very decent options for 32K, 36K, 38K, and 45K.

              When I was in Delhi, I finalized my wedding lehenga on day 1 of shopping (strange I know but I only had 10 days in Delhi). The next day I headed to Frontier Raas in South Ex and I totally fell in love with an outfit there but it was way out of my budget. After negotiating and taking some of the work away, it was starting to sound more reasonable. However, right at that moment when my mom and I were thinking of placing the order, we saw another salesman pull out the EXACT same lehenga that I got for my wedding from OPJL. It was priced at over 1L more than what I paid. I looked at my mom and said to her that we really need to get the hell out of here haha.
              Having said this, if you in a rush and need something fabulous, head to Frontier Raas. You will find something very nice there but you will have to pay through your nose.

  15. I have been reading your blog for the last few months so I can be prepared for my big shopping trip to India this year. As most readers, I come here for inspiration, ideas, and simply being in-the-know about all things wedding. This is my first comment here and honestly it is not because of your lehenga, jewellery or makeup that I am writing here (although I must say you look amazing!) but it is because you are an exceptional storyteller. Thanks for calming me down and getting me really excited about my Big day. Keep up the good work here.

  16. Hi TDB,
    Well I am trying to help out my fiancee in her search for that perfect wedding lehenga and fortunately, while I was googling for some tips, l found this blog. Must say, u hav explained everything exceptionally well. The moment i read the post i sent the link to my fiancee.
    We’ve just started with the lehenga search and hav visited few shops like Rati Ram Ram Vinod and Apsara in chandni chowk . (lot of ppl recommended them) bt couldnt find something of my fiancee’s choice. Hav read ur post and we’re definitely gonna visit OPJ. Would be great if u could tell us some good lehenga shops in kamla nagar. Also, would appreciate if u could share the price of ur lehenga.
    Thanks and keep up the good work.

  17. Really enjoyed reading about your wedding. I’m a Sri Lankan marrying a Punjabi and we are having a Christian ceremony in Sri Lanka followed by a North Indian wedding in Delhi. I’ll be coming to Delhi to pick out my wedding outfit and I just wanted to know where you got your jewellery from and how much should I typically budget (at a reasonable level) for a chain and ear ring set? Needless to say I am very confused about the Indian ceremony 🙂

  23. Hi Doll, you looked absolutely gorgeous in the lehenga.. I am getting married in April 2015 and was planning to come over to Delhi for the wedding shopping (I am from Malaysia) . Would appreciate it much if you could let me know how much you got your lehenga for. Also I was thinking of wearing a Bridal Anarkali for the gurdwara ceremony, but am unsure if i can find a nice one. People have said that they can actually turn a lehnga into an anarkali..How long do they take to custom make a piece? I will only be there for about 5 days! What are your thoughts? Would you have any advice for me?? Thanks 🙂

    1. ASIANA COUTURE Relatively new kids on the block but already making a ton of waves in the Chandni Chowk bridal scene (LOL- i make it sound like Chandni Chowk has a ‘scene’) . I hadnt actually heard of them when i went shopping for my lehenga, but over time i have seen brides wear some lovely pieces from here. Then i actually visited them and absolutely loved some of their stuff- a lot of new , current styles and very like high quality pieces which if you follow Indian designers, you will know! Prices are not super cheap again, but because they are lesser known than OPJL, you will get a better price for sure ! Again, stay far away from custom.

  25. I don’t know whether to thank you, be angry at you or to simply appreciate you for painting a marvelous picture with words (and your lovely photos of course)… For the first time and in an intense way, you made me feel the pangs of ‘leaving’ my home. However logically we try to arrange things, there is suddenly a gust of emotions that throws everything around and a feeling of longing is all that remains… You brought it about for me.
