#1. Bridal trousseau shopping

Wedding lehengas, no doubt, have to be most exclusive and perfect, but that does not mean that you have to pay an exorbitant amount for them. Many brides, often, end up buying heavily embellished lehengas, which cannot be worn anywhere else.

For your lehengas, here are a few tips you should keep in mind:

  • Start by setting a budget, keeping a little margin. Then, stick to your budget, come what may!
  • Do not be fooled by shopkeepers quoting unnecessarily high prices for a lehenga, just because it is bridal wear.
  • Do not blindly go for designer names that will automatically shoot up the cost of your outfits. Look for little known designers and showrooms, which can offer you amazing designs at lesser prices.

  • Do not go for an over-the-top lehenga that weighs 20 kilograms, just because it is a designer label or because your sister-in-law wore something similar on her D-day. Opt for something that looks good on you, and suits your taste and budget.
  • Look at online stores and shopping websites. Many good designers and major brands prefer online shopping websites to showcase and sell their designs at affordable prices.

Also, do not just stop at lehengas; make your trousseau shopping less stressful, and more affordable by buying your sarees and suits online too.

Smart tip for busy brides: For all the workaholic brides-to-be, who might not get enough time to go out for shopping, online shopping can be a great idea. With just one click, online stores bring together the best brands and amazing discounts for you.

What's more? You can also make use of these options to buy clothes in bulk that you wish to gift to your in-laws or guests.

Styles from the past can get popular any day. If you look through your closet, you will come across various such clothes that you have not worn even once, or that you do not like otherwise but can go very well when combined with something else.

So, before going to the market and splurging out on new garments, try to mix and match within your already existing wardrobe, and who knows, you might just end-up creating a smashing new look with your existing clothes.

#3. Buy stuff online

Sale seasons always collide with the wedding season, so make the best use of this to spend less. Sales come as a boon for the soon-to-be married, given the amount of shopping that Indian weddings involve.

Before the sale season starts, do visit your favourite stores, and see what all you want and which items are going to be on sale.

Smart tip: Malls and markets, especially when the sales and discounts are on, are super-crowded during weekends. So, if you want to look through everything at your own pace, go for shopping on weekdays.

This one might raise a few eyebrows but, it is an affordable option that is catching up fast, and the budget-conscious brides-to-be must think about this as well. Given the fact that not many girls are too happy about repeating an outfit more than once, there is a growing demand of dresses and jewellery on hire.

There are a number of shops that rent out designer wedding outfits at minimal charges. You can check them out for some good options.

Smart Tip: Do check for marks, stains, quality, and other such related issues while taking a lehenga on rent.
