Okay, so you have probably read about a dozen articles about how Chandni Chowk is this treasure trove of the most amazing bridal lehengas. It’s when you actually land there that you come across the shiny, blingy attires alongside smelly, crowded streets—not exactly what you had in mind, right?

Chances are that you haven’t gone to the right store in Chandni Chowk till now. Take it from us at WedMeGood; a bunch of folks who are pretty obsessed with finding nooks and corners that sell bridal lehengas, which are probably the only places in Chandni Chowk worth knowing.

Om Prakash Jawahar Lal

Compared to the rest of the riff-raff, these guys have nice, elegant pieces in styles similar to Sabyasachi, Manish Arora, and the likes. The downside—they compromise on the flare, at least according to us. Not that you won’t get a full flared lehenga here—you will, but we found that the level of flare was slightly lesser than what you’d get in some other shops. Also, we suggest you don’t get anything customised from here; just check out the sample and get it made in your size.

Where: 354, Naya Katra, 1st Floor, Chandni Chowk

Contact: 011 23273312

Price: Starting at INR 35,000 for light lehengas

These guys are the relatively-new kids on the block, but are already making tonnes of waves in the Chandni Chowk bridal scene. We absolutely loved some of their stuff—they have a lot of new, current styles and very high quality pieces, which you’d already know if you follow Indian designers.

Prices are not super cheap, but because they are lesser known than OPJL, you will get a better price for sure! Again, stay far away from customisation.

Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam

Another hidden gem that nobody really knows about, Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam sells styles similar to Om Prakash, but at a cheaper rate. However, the variety is kind of limited, so it may be a hit or miss kind of situation. We saw a deep red lehenga with gorgeous soft gold work which we had also seen at Frontier Raas as well as Roop Sarees, but for half the price!

We’ve also seen some gorgeous customised pieces, and while they turn out nice, the finishing never ends up being like the sample they’d shown you. Prices are just a tad cheaper than OPJL, but not much more expensive than everyone else, either.

Where: 291, Katra Pyarelal Gali, Chandni Chowk

Price: Starting at INR 30,000 for light lehengas

Tucked away in a corner near Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam, this small store is a hidden gem. The lehengas offered here are all stunning; the prices can range from 40 k to 1.5 lakh for a lehenga. The styles are very current and inspired by designers such as Sabyasachi. We also spotted lovely gota patti anarkalis and floor length jackets for engagements and smaller functions.

Where: Shop No. 259, Katra Pyare Lal, Chandni Chowk

Contact: +91 9818087331

Price: Starting at INR 35,000 for light lehengas

Sudhir Bhai

Sudhir Bhai is another well known shop in Chandni Chowk and is located right next to OPJL. They have some nice stuff, and for cheaper, too. But because the variety keeps changing, it may be a hit or a miss.

Where: 485, Katra Asharfi, Chandni Chowk

Contact: 011 23269347

Price: Starting at INR 30,000 for light lehengas

You will have to hunt, but sometimes, you can score some major drool-worthy stuff here {‘sometimes’ being the key word here}. Still worth a visit as it’s cheaper than the big names and has quite a bit of variety.

Where: 297, Near Katra Pyare Lal, Main Road, Chandni Chowk

Contact: 011 23260067

Price: Starting at INR 35,000 for light lehengas

A friend of ours got a wedding lehenga from here and we feel these guys are definitely more affordable than the rest. You’ll get better prices here then the others; you could score some heavy lehengas for about INR 60,000, but you would have to hunt to find a good piece. Also, this is a good place for trousseau saris.

Where: V-397, Main Road, Outside Katra Naya, Chandni Chowk

Contact: 011 23275488

Price: Starting at INR 25,000 for light lehengas

#LBBTip: Smaller shops like Tek Chand Arjit Goel, Chetan Saris, Shringar Saris, and Kalakriti are nice for sarees, too {Kalakriti is especially great for anarkalis, and Shringar for some nice sarees} but the variety of lehengas at these is pretty limited.
