If you're a bride from Delhi who has grown up listening to chachi's and massi's saying that South Ex is one of the best places for bridal shopping - Hi Five!
We've all been in the same situation.
So, recently when my best friend got hitched, we started her bridal shopping in South Ex as per the recommendations and stumbled upon this extraordinary and massive store named, "Ghungat by Shaveta & Anuj".
The store is a heaven for brides who're looking for stunning wedding lehengas, gowns, anarkalis and even outfits for wedding trousseau. They've beautifully blended the traditional attire with contemporary style that brings opulence all the way through fabrics, liveliness from the shades and hues and intricate detailing owing to embroideries and work. They're happy to customise your outfits according to your preference (although, you'd not want to change anything about their gorgeous pieces). And I can bet your mom will instantly be attracted as well - because they even have mother-of-the-bride outfits. How lovely and thoughtful? <3
The designer duo, Shaveta and Anuj were luckily at the store on my visit and were exceptionally warm and welcoming. While we were glancing through the wedding outfits, the designers explained how far they've come from a one-room designer studio in Jammu in 1993 to now having an international presence in cities like Dubai (UAE) and Houston (USA).
So, to give you a quick look of their store and how their collection looks like, I picked my favourite pieces that are perfect for every wedding occasion of yours:
We're loving this yellow and green combination lehenga for mehendi because of its bright and warm colours!
After the lively and vibrant mehendi comes the sparkly sangeet night, which is why we think this cape lehenga is an ideal option. You're free to dance and drink all night without having to worry about your dupatta.
If you're a bride who is up for experimenting, pastel colours are a great choice. This pastel blue lehenga with peach zardosi motifs will definitely earn you brownie points!
But if you're someone who likes to go traditional, you can opt for warm tone colours such as this maroon lehenga paired with a light pink dupatta.
After wearing lehengas for mostly on your wedding functions, go for a gown for the reception night. This one has a long long long train but it's not clear in the picture! :(
As I mentioned earlier, the store has a huge variety of wedding outfits even for the mothers. Here's one saree that we couldn't stop swooning over.
