Where am I going to find my dream lehenga?

Brides-to-be, whether in India or abroad, have to figure this one out first in their wedding planning process. But while the galaxy of star Indian bridal designers is easy to access for brides-to-be in the country, NRI brides find it a little harder. Not every bride will be able to visit India for the repeated fittings and intricate discussions you need to create a stunning bridal trousseau.

So, WeddingSutra to the rescue. Here is a list of the top bridal stores to visit in the UK where you will find your dream lehenga this wedding season.

1. Aashni + Co
Aashni + Co opened its flagship store in London's charming Notting Hill and suddenly NRI brides in the United Kingdom had access to visionary South Asian bridal wear designers. With offerings ranging from haute couture, ready-to-wear, jewelry and accessories, our favorite picks from the store are these creations by Varun Bahl and Astha Narang.

Varun Bahl Lehenga: INR 525,000
Astha Narang Lehenga: INR 88,000

Store Address:
47 Ledbury Rd, London W11 2AA, UK

2. Soltee by Sulakshana Monga
The London Studio for Indian couture designer Sulakshana Monga’s luxe label, Soltee, opened for retail in July 2017. Currently in the spotlight are Head Designer Sulakshana Monga’s beautiful masterpieces. Each has a fresh perspective on design, form, and patterns inspired by nature. Our favorite aesthetic from this store is the luxurious fluidity of each beautiful creation and the cleverly controlled structure of the drapes.
