Mumbai is said to be the fashion capital of India. Hence, wedding lehengas available here cater not only to every taste but also to every pocket. From hopping from one shop to another, one boutique to another, wedding shopping in Mumbai is as exciting as the event itself.
Mumbai is a metro city and thus has numerous shops dealing in bridal lehengas. From designer lehengas to exclusive creations by well-known designers like Ritu Kumar, Vikram Phadnis etc. and even non-designer boutiques, Mumbai has it all. Without proper planning or having a roadmap in place, bridal lehenga shopping in Mumbai could turn out to be a waste of time.
Shop as per your BUDGET
The budget is the most important aspect as it defines the type of bridal lehenga a person should buy. People with unlimited budget can, thus, visit flagship stores of designers like Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra, Anamika Khanna etc. On the other hand, someone who wants to opt for multiple options under the same roof can visit multi-designer boutiques like Atosa, Ensemble, Aza, Samsaara, SVA etc.

The presence of a number of lesser-known designer boutiques ensures the availability of exclusive bridal lehengas within a decided budget. Shruti Sheth, Chamee and Palak, Saan.She, The Little Black Bow etc., are boutiques which offer a perfect mix of traditionally contemporary bridal lehengas absolutely within the budget. Other local favourites include Sushma Sarees, Sagar Couture, Kalki Couture, Roop Kala etc. which cater to the demands of bridal lehengas from non-designer stores. These stores keep an eclectic collection of bridal lehengas and are ideal for people who want to get value for money.
PLAN it out well

Planning on the basis of the place of residence would divide Mumbai into the following:
- South Mumbai with Marine Lines, Colaba, Kalbadevi, Breach Candy and Kemps Corner as the most popular destinations,
- Lower Parel is a shopper’s paradise with stores like Chamomile, Palladium, Phoenix, Mogra and Anita Dongre boutiques,
- Juhu-Irla offers a plethora of alternatives in the form of Sushma Designs, Paaneri, Kimaya, Kalaniketan, Libas etc., to name a few. Irla which is situated just around the corner from Juhu is a haven for people shopping for wedding finery and
- Santa Cruz and Khar offer so many options in the form of Kalki, Bawree, Friendship, Shagun etc., that it is very easy to be delightfully confused.
So now that you know how to shop for your wedding lehenga in Mumbai, you can easily let off the stress and go shopping with a clear mind.
