On your dream day, you want to look like the queen. You may have spent hours on Pinterest and Instagram finding your perfect outfit, or you may be starting your search from scratch. Finding your wedding outfits can be stressful, especially given how many events South Asian weddings can have plus all of the outfits for your parents and siblings. A common question that comes up is should I travel across the world and go wedding shopping in India?
You’ll find couples who say absolutely, it’s worth it to travel to India, and other couples who say that they found everything they wanted in the US or Canada and are glad they didn’t make the long haul trip. I chose to go to India and purchase several of my outfits, but I also found several of my outfits in the US. Wedding shopping in India can be insane and exhilarating as Sheila Marikar described in From Ride Share to Rickshaw: Adventures of Wedding Shopping in India. I’ll start this piece by including the pros and cons I’ve heard from couples about wedding shopping in India and then end with tips and top stores to visit in Delhi if you end up visiting the wedding capital of India.
