VISION: Being raised in Australia, I had always wanted to walk down the aisle and have a seated wedding ceremony where the focus was on the bride & the groom. In this regard, I really wanted a “fusion” of both western and Indian cultures.
SHOPPING: We did all our wedding shopping in Delhi. I did a bit of research online before I went, looking at designers and had a color scheme and rough designs in mind for what I wanted. I was really lucky as I managed to find everything I wanted at Frontier Raas in South Ex II. My Reception and Sangeet lehengas were based on other outfits they had in stock but were in the wrong colors. They were really good at understanding what I wanted, made these pieces to order and shipped it all to Australia with no hassles.
TIPS: Best advice would be to listen to everyone, but be really clear in your mind with exactly what you want. Especially in India, family or shopkeepers and even people off the street will tell you their opinion so you really need to stand firm with what you want and what your vision is.
