Every girl dreams about being beautifully dressed with the most perfect outfit on her wedding day. And going by the number of celebrity weddings – from Anushka & Prinaka Chopra wearing a stunning Sabhyasachi lehenga to Sonam’s Anarkali Salwar at her mehendi – we know you really want to wear a designer wedding lehenga.
Well, well, here is the little secret – we at Shopkhoj went scouting for these styles, and yes – like everyone else we landed up in Chandni Chowk. However, when we went scouting for lehengas we found that you can actually hire a beautiful bridal lehenga in Lajpat Nagar for a fraction of the cost. Yes, you heard that right – you don’t have to buy it, you can simple rent it!!
Bridal Lehengas on rent? Therefore, you spend less and enjoy the most beautiful lehenga for any occasion.Isn’t that so much more fun and convenient? Forget visiting several stores before your wedding and having to make the tough decision. It is tricky when you are spending a fortune buying your lehenga.
