Weddings create so much excitement for the family,friends and most of all the spouses to be! Among all the excitement there is a hell lot of confusion. From dresses to jewellery, makeup to accessories, the list goes on. Everyone wants to lend in their opinion creating more confusion. But at the end of the day what matters most is what YOU as the bride like and enjoy.

Note down all the things that you definitely wouldn’t want to miss during the wedding shopping.

The most loved wedding dress for indian girls remains to be the LEHENGA or the SAREE.Some also prefer gowns and half sarees. Choose the look that YOU prefer and get your designer to recreate it for you. You can use the shawl of lehenga to cover your head or customise one to match your look. Often times brides allow themselves to be discouraged by the opinions of family and friends. If you feel like the queen you are when you slip into the dress, that’s all that matters!

Before the big day, give a thorough check to find any blisters or missing sequins in the dress.

#2. Jewelry

Indians love jewelry. There is no fact that can deny it. Choosing the correct type of jewelry can save you a lot of money. Gold is the most desired form of  wedding jewelry. But today’s young women are more interested in antique jewelry rather than just gold. If you are looking for ways to save, opt for the imitation or fancy jewelry for maang tika(nethi chuti) , hip chain and hand chain which cannot be used again.When buying gold jewelry make sure there is less wastage of gold in the form of stones if you plan to save. However, the amount and type of jewellery you chose is up to you. Also make sure you get chain adjustment ropes at the jeweller for attaching to the chains for arranging them without looking cramped.
