Questions to address while planning for your big day :

  • What style of wedding do you plan to have? Is there a theme?
  • Will the wedding ceremony be held at a house of worship?
  • Do you have an affinity to culture and tradition?
  • Is it possible to incorporate both contemporary and traditional elements into your wedding celebrations?

Other considerations to be made :

  • What is the budget you have set aside for wedding attire?
  • Do you prefer the rental route or the custom-made option?
  • If you are renting, what are the terms and conditions of rental?
  • How much lead time do you have for the custom-made route?
  • Does your wedding photography package include attire?

A few more suggestions :

  • If you are unsure of the significance of traditional wedding attire, be sure to find out from your elders or experienced wedding culture consultants.
  • If you decide on a custom-made contemporary or avant-garde creation, ensure that it is appropriate, especially if your wedding is to be held in a house of worship.
