For years, I have been thinking about the time I spent in India with my family, in a state of extreme luxury, with no time for a wedding dress or for a date night.
This is when I was so inspired by the concept of the “alternative” wedding dress.
The concept of a “new bride” was new to me, and as such, I was initially shocked at the fact that so many Westerners had never tried the idea of wearing a “traditional” wedding gown.
After a few days of thinking about it, I realized that I was wrong.
There are countless reasons why a “New Bride” may be more expensive than a traditional wedding dress , and it is only natural that the cost of such a dress is a huge consideration for many Western weddings.
The cost of a wedding gown in India ranges from ₹1,000 to ₤1,500 per piece, depending on the size of the wedding and the dress.
This means that for most weddings, the cost for a “good” wedding may be ₩15,000-20,000 (which is about $2,000-$5,000), which is significantly less than the cost when buying a “standard” dress for the same amount of money.
The idea of a bride is a luxury, not a necessity The concept is so much easier to grasp in the West, where people tend to be more comfortable spending more on wedding attire.
In India, where there is no formal dress code, it is possible for a bride to choose what she wants to wear for her wedding, whether it is a traditional dress, an expensive wedding dress with sequins or a “fashionable” dress.
When a bride decides to wear a dress, the wedding dress has to meet the following criteria: It must be of high quality; it must have a neckline of at least 4 inches, which must be well made, and it must not be too long or too short.
The most important thing is that the dress must be stylish, as the groom has to feel comfortable with the dress being so expensive, especially if he is a high-end groom.
A wedding dress that is too long is not a bride’s dream, but when it comes to getting married in India, there is a lot of pressure on the bride to wear the dress that the groom will accept.
However, for the bride, the dress has become a very important part of the entire process.
“A bride can choose what to wear on her wedding day”, said Prasad, a designer and blogger who runs a wedding design blog.
“If she doesn’t want a gown made of fabric from a different country, she can have her own, and make her own.
If he is in a position to take on responsibility, he has to accept that the bride will have more time to make her choice and for the dress to be of the best quality. “
It is important for the groom to feel confident in the wedding.
If he is in a position to take on responsibility, he has to accept that the bride will have more time to make her choice and for the dress to be of the best quality.
The bride also has to look for an affordable wedding dress and that can be very expensive, which is why she is also more cautious about the price of a dress.”
In India the wedding industry is very expensive.
“I would have to go to a boutique, buy a dress that I could wear at home, and then go and buy it at a cheaper price at the same time.
This can be a very expensive experience for a couple who already have a large family”, said Murali.
“The cost of the dress can also be a burden for a single person if she is not married, so a bride needs to be very flexible and do not limit her own choices”.
A bride is expected to have a budget, but she has the option to spend her own money If the bride decides that she wants something a little more expensive, there are other options that the wedding director can consider.
“In some cases, a bride can opt for a designer dress, which costs about ₘ30,000, but this is not the norm in India,” said Prashant, a wedding director in the western state of Karnataka.
“There are also brides who don’t want to pay for their own dress, but instead opt for an ‘alternative’ dress.
If a bride wants to opt for something expensive, then there is another option that can help her.
For example, she could choose a traditional white dress made of a silk fabric that costs ₨50,000,” he added.
A bride who does not want to spend the money on a traditional, expensive dress should not feel pressured to pay much more for her
