Top Wedding Lehenga Stores in the US
Shopping for bridal lehengas in the US? Check out these designer stores.
Up until a few years ago, it was very difficult for NRI brides, especially those in the US, to get their hands on traditional ensembles if they could not travel to India. Long-distance shopping and shipping done by relatives in India was usually a case of trial and error which left brides feeling frustrated. Thankfully, savvy entrepreneurs saw the demand and set up stores to cater to modern, style-savvy Indian brides. Here, we present some of the top brick-and-mortar as well as online stores for traditional Indian wedding wear in the US.
