Now it was nothing short of a big fat Indian wedding. My maternal uncle and aunty had left no stone unturned for their daughter’s wedding to remain memorable for as long. From Bollywood-inspired dresses, traditions, singing, and dancing to mehndi, dhol, shehnai, and what not!
However, all my dearest cousin sister and I would remember was the pre-wedding shopping. It was indeed fun, enjoyable and our gang of crazy girls made the most of it!
Kinari Bazaar was one of our first wedding shopping destinations. At first, it didn’t appeal to me too much but as and when we immersed in traditional shopping there, it turned out to be quite pleasing.
Thankfully, we were carrying our Bankcards otherwise; we surely would be facing the music. The variety of wedding essentials featured in this market is unmatchable. There is everything from dresses to jewellery, accessories, bangles, anklets and so much more.
The shopkeepers there generally quote higher prices but they sweetly offer you heavy bargains too. Tip - Bargain with them like there’s no tomorrow!
What I was surprised to see was the immense variations available there. Like you can easily get a regular churidar as well as evening gowns and bridal Sarees as well. Isn’t that great? So apart from shopping for both the bride and the groom, the rest of us also picked up tons of clothing stuffs.
It was jaw dropping to find such a huge variety of embroidery work, stone work, thread work, gold/silver work etc., from across various regions in India. We got exclusive dresses with beautiful embroidery work within our budget! In addition, it is worth noticing that the quality is very not compromised upon.
So, I would advise that whether you are on a tight budget or not, whether it is wedding or any other family function, do make sure you get your stuffs from Kinari Bazaar, Delhi and experience best quality products at affordable prices! Enjoy!
