Before I share the list of online vendors, I do want to share some pros and cons with buying online versus buying in person.
When it comes to buying in person, the main disadvantage I experienced was that outfits generally cost a lot more money. For example, my wedding sherwani (shoes and turban were purchased separately) was about $700 USD. Getting something similar at a physical store would cost me at least $1500. However, in exchange for a higher price rag at the store, you have the benefit of trying outfits on and being able to speak with the vendors face-to-face.
When it came to buying our outfits online, yes, we were happy with the pricing. However, we had to spend a lot of effort taking and gathering measurements (I suck at taking measurements), and we had to make sure we left enough time to do alterations before the wedding.
Personally, my outfit was a little too tight, so I had to get it loosened. My alterations cost less than $50, and took about a week to complete. So there was some extra time and work involved with getting adjustments done, after receiving my outfit. If you’re considering buying your outfits (or outfits for your family+friends), these types of inconveniences are something to keep in mind. Personally, I felt the inconveniences were worth the cost savings.
Anyways, I’ll stop talking. Below is a list of online vendors, along with some reviews about them.
Review: “I did my whole wedding shopping virtually with Frontier Phagwara and I have zero complaints! I asked for samples to be sent and they did! Even numbered them and duplicated them for their records for when I chose the one I liked! With Covid and all, they were very honest with the timelines and I have all my clothes for my August wedding! Overall, if you’re willing to stay up late to do the virtual shopping, it’s well worth it!”
Review: “I ordered my bridal outfit and fiancé’s groom outfit for our ceremony, from Latest Punjabi Suits. I was scared that the outfits wouldn’t meet my expectations and/or wouldn’t fit correctly. I was totally wrong. The outfits were amazing, and fit perfectly. The vendor was very helpful with guiding me through the measurement process, all over WhatsApp. I would recommend this vendor to anyone thinking about buying their outfits from India.
For context, I had my outfits shipped to Washington state.”
Alright – that is all I’ve got for today. If you have questions about anything related to buying Indian wedding outfits online, drop us a comment at the bottom of this post.
