We all know that India is known for its big fat weddings! Indian weddings are full of colour, happiness, and love because of so many functions that are involved. However, these functions can get quite tiring and what’s even more hectic and flustering at times is shopping for each function. At least that’s how I feel.

The last wedding I went to had a guest from abroad attending it. While she wore a gorgeous lehenga and choli for the reception, I began to wonder what it must be like for her, and several others, to shop for an Indian outfit when they fly down here for their friend’s or relative’s wedding. Wearing the right attire for the right function is so important so that you don’t feel out of place or as if you aren’t a part of the celebration. Keeping this in mind, here’s a whole list of all the stores in Mumbai for finding wedding outfits, be it custom-made or readymade!
