“Selecting a wedding dress is more than just a fitting. It’s a process- a memory in the making”- Olivelli Cape Town.

While there are endless options for bridal shopping in Bangalore, we understand it can be a lot to pick. So, we’ve made it easy for you and picked out a few hidden gems that offer you unique and exquisite bridal finds. Read on to know the city’s best-kept secrets.

Before you begin your wedding shopping, keep these handy tips in mind that will make shopping easier.

List ‘em Out

This is a question that often lingers in a bride’s mind- What should I shop for before marriage and will I be able to shop everything that I have thought of? Well, it is ideal to make a list. Going by the dates of the ceremonies will make sure nothing is missed. The list must have things that you will need before, during, and after.
After-ceremony essentials are the most ignored but you will do yourself a big favor if you pack them well in advance.

Like they say “Double-check to prevent a wreck”, go through the checklist again at least 2 weeks before the big day to prevent any last-minute hiccups.

This also avoids the procrastination trap and alleviates the last-minute preparation stress. And if it is a destination wedding, early shopping is non-negotiable. So, get on that shopping spree ASAP!
