2. Fizzy Goblet

This brand is also Bollywood's favourite. Be it traditional juttis or modern flats, they have an ample amount of options for every bride. Their collection of lively colours will make your ant outfit smashing. Our personal favourite is the collection where they have used dainty pearls to make the sandals look surreal.

4. The CAI Store

If you are someone who doesn't like high heels, they have the finest picks for you. The main purpose behind this brand is to provide you all with footwear that isn't made of leather. They have very comfortable flats and block heels, at an affordable price range. Our favourite is their latest collection (Hues of Bliss), where they have used gerahe knots, palti takka and some dori work.
