You know what would make wedding budgeting easier? Understanding up front how much things cost.
Take, for instance, shopping for your wedding clothes. How do you plan a shopping trip and prioritize certain designers if you don’t know whether they fit within your budget?
Your days of shopping in the dark end today. I’ve divvied up the most famous South Asian bridal designers – from household names like Sabyasachi to new favorites like Siddhartha Bansal – into 4 different pricing tiers.
Hopefully this breakdown will make it easy for you to decide who to shop, where to do your shopping, and reduce the risk for a sticker shock-induced cardiac event.
Whether you’re looking for your ceremony wear or a sangeet or mehndi outfit, you can find something from world famous South Asian bridal designers within these 4 price ranges.
Designers that fall into this pricing tier are Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahiliani. Some of their designs can go for a whopping $20-30k per piece. You can also find lesser pieces from their collections hovering right around the $5,000 range.
