When it comes to prepping for a wedding or looking for bridal attire — right from selecting jewellery to fixing a florist — it’s going to be a stressful process; one that will leave you overwrought. Fret not, however, if you are worried about last-minute shopping, because here are a few designer brands in the city that could come to your rescue.

Raw Mango

Raw Mango is a classic for a reason; from a sari to a simple lehenga, the brand knows how to make a statement. This wedding collection is known for turning heads and is heavily inspired by Agha Hasan Amanat’s 1852 love story between a mortal and an otherworldly fairy. The Peacock Country collection includes tehzeeb designs of gold and silver ganga jamuna, aari, zardozi, and gota. Their kurtas and lehengas are woven in rich brocades and also the classic jewelled colours of mixed silver and gold, forest green and saturated reds and indigo that compete with a dancing peacock. At Raw Mango. INR 18,800 onwards.

Gaurang Shah

Are you that bride or bridesmaid who is looking for a sari with traditional motifs inspired by South Indian temples? Well-known designer Gaurang Shah is in the city with his latest bridal collection Sindoor. Traditional weaves like kanjivaram, paithani, banarasi, kota, uppada, khadi, and muslin are used with intricate gara, kasuti, aari, chikan and kutchi embroidery.  December 7 and 8. 11 am to 7.30 pm.
