If shopping for South Asian clothes is foreign to you (see what I did there), here’s something important you should know:


Outfits aren’t made until you order them. 


It takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks for stores to produce and ship your purchase (maybe longer these days #supplychainproblems). Tack on a couple of weeks or more for alterations after it arrives, and that puts you at around 3 months before you’re wedding ready.

Who thinks that far ahead?! Post-pandemic me is all about living in the now. And the only wedding I’ve ever thought about *that* far in advance is my own.

Sometimes, we need outfits fast. Like for the wedding that’s happening a few weeks from now, fast. This list is for those situations. Here are some of my favorite online shops with ready to ship sections.
