Indian Brides Say ‘Yes’ to Lehengas Near and Far (Very Far)

A visit along the aisle calls for regular flier kilometers and a passport for a lot of brides searching for conventional wedding clothes.

NEW DELHI — After a 18-hour journey from nyc to New Delhi in December sandwiched between my moms and dads, i needed nothing but to just just take an extended bath and plunge beneath the covers. But we had been here on a objective and time had been scarce.

Therefore, one brief pit stop at our resort later on, we had been yawning in a vehicle on the road to Chandni Chowk, a famously crowded market hawking sets from textbooks to hardware supplies. The maze of stalls is really so sinuous that automobiles can simply far travel so, from which point we clambered into an automobile rickshaw and told the motorist to check out Asiana Couture. We nervously hoped it wsince as good a shop as my cousins that are distant advertised on our WhatsApp group chat.

Finally, at the conclusion of a candle lit street lined with heaps of vibrant saris as well as the periodic stray dog, we discovered the shop. So started a frantic week of shopping for my bridal lehenga, a.k.a. My wedding gown.
