The bride who shops for her wedding trousseau in Mumbai is spoiled for choice. This cosmopolitan city is laden with nuptial riches, as top fashion designers catering to the bridal market have set up boutiques across the city. Where once the traditional sari ruled, updated incarnations of the classic attire, variations on the Indian three-piece lehenga—a cropped choli (blouse), ankle-length skirt and voluminous dupatta (scarf)—and even cocktail gowns are now favoured by modern Indian brides. The colour palette has also expanded, as traditional red has made way for shades of pink, saffron and coral; and metallic and white hues have found their way onto the wedding stage.

Whether you’re inclined towards these modern looks, want to invest in a traditional sari or jewellery, or would just like to incorporate a touch of Indian glamour into your Western-style wedding, here are 10 must-visit boutiques for stylish brides-to-be.

Sabyasachi

Ador House, 6 K Dubash Marg
In July, India’s favourite designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, opened an 8,500-square-foot (790-square-metre) store, just a stone’s throw away from the previous Mumbai flagship. Spanning two storeys, his new space is a visual delight, with no surface left untouched—the store boasts 22 hand-painted chandeliers, 52 antique rugs and more than 400 ittar bottles, all carefully curated by the designer himself. In addition to stunning attire for men and women, the store also showcases bespoke bridal jewellery, curated by Sabyasachi and created by Kishan Das and Co.

Jaipur Gems

2, Dharam Palace, Hughes Road
A family-run business on Mumbai’s bustling Hughes Road, Jaipur Gems is a treasure trove of 22-karat gold, traditional jadau pieces and uncut diamonds, and for many people it’s synonymous with Indian jewellery. Plan to spend hours browsing through the limited-edition designs. We suggest investing in the classic lines of uncut diamonds, and in the jeweller’s bold gold cuffs, best worn stacked.

Rose

3rd Floor, Hormuz Mansion, 72, B. Desai Road
Statement stones, flexible designs and serious diamonds—Rose creates jewellery that can be worn around the world. From engagement rings to diamond cufflinks, diamond chokers to chandelier earrings, the brand’s pieces cover the spectrum for brides- and grooms-to-be. Don’t forget to stop by the watch bar for a choice array of international timepieces.

Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla

1 and 2, Om Chambers, Kemps Corner
This resplendent ivory and gold salon, one of two Mumbai locations, is indicative of Jani’s and Khosla’s love of the classic. Predominantly known for their exquisite chikankari (delicate thread work) and couture, they also dabble in event design. It’s little wonder that India’s leading families flock to them for all aspects of their big day.

Nirav Modi

Trade Point Building (2nd floor), Kamala Mills, Lower Parel
Don’t expect traditional Indian jewellery at Nirav Modi’s luxe, art-filled, appointment-only gallery in Mumbai (or at the designer’s new boutique in Delhi). Modi is the man India’s elite turn to when they are looking for the rarest of stones. His pieces, which have been a part of multiple auctions at Christie’s and Sotheby’s, are appreciated for their unparalleled settings, patented cuts and minimal use of metal.

Manish Malhotra

Showroom No. 3/4/5 Vishnudham CHS, corner of 14th Road and Linking Road
The designer, the personal favourite of India’s top stars, is also known for translating many of his cinematic bridal looks to women off-screen. Adding to the appeal: his trademark use of colour, which includes dreamy pastels and alluring ivory and red combinations, as well as his voluminous anarkali-lehenga hybrids and beautiful blouses.

Christian Louboutin Wedding Suite

Second Floor, Sir H.C. Dinshaw Building, 16 Horniman Circle
The shoe maestro may have stores across the world, but only one boasts its very own Wedding Suite. At the brand’s Horniman Circle boutique, brides can create the perfect bespoke shoe, customized to match their wedding sari or lehenga.

Ensemble

Great Western Building, 130/132 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road
Pressed for time? Ensemble is the one-stop shop for Indian designer wear, from bold-faced names like Kolkata-based Anamika Khanna and Delhi’s Varun Bahl to younger designers like Rahul Mishra and Pankaj and Nidhi. The store devotes significant space to bridal wear, including creations and customizations by the in-house Ensemble Design Studio.

Tarun Tahiliani

Villar Ville, Ground Floor, Ramchandani Marg, Apollo Bunder
Investigate the Delhi couturier’s detailed textiles, intricate embroidery and sophisticated colour palette at his sea-fronting store in Colaba. Keeping in line with his trademark style of merging Indian crafts with European tailoring, his most popular looks include Grecian-draped sari dresses and sharply tailored men’s sherwanis.

Monisha Jaising

Ground Floor No. 3, Shailja Apartments Pali Hill Road, Bandra West
For most of her career, Monisha Jaising has successfully focused on resort wear. So with her recent foray into bridal, it’s not surprising that the designer decided to create looks for the destination bride. From her mix of sporty glamour and street edge have emerged many innovations, including sexy sari gowns, leather lehenga skirts and sequinned churidar pants.

    Hi,

    I’ve been looking high and low for a Bengali bridal saree for myself. Am very keen on sticking to the traditional Banarasi silk saree with conventional motifs & weaving, however with a touch of glam. Would be grateful if I can be pointed in the right direction.

    Many thanks,
