Buying a lehenga online has become a breeze, thanks to designers going online and even small labels. Like you would ensure that your lehenga shopping offline is perfect and you know all the hacks before you step into the store, there are some rules that you need to follow while buying a lehenga online. Want to know which ones? Keep reading!
Go Through A Trusted Platform
While there are scores of platforms that sell you lehengas, you don’t want to end up with a first copy or a bad rip-off! So going through a trusted platform is essential. WedMeGood Bridal Shopping is your one-stop shop for all things lehenga. From your mehendi to your bridal lehenga, you can find them all here. If you hunting for offbeat labels, you can also contact the brand directly on their social media platforms and they will guide you to their official page!
Always Request For A Video Session Before Buying Your Lehenga
Everything looks pretty in edited and perfectly posed pictures. And that is why you need a video session where you can see the lehenga and the work details on video. This will ensure that you can be 100% sure of what you are buying without having to step in the store. Keep an eye out for our WedMeGood Live Shopping Fests, where we have live video sessions for you to check out various designer wear!
Check With The Designer About Colour and Fabric Swatches
Since your buying process is completely online, check with the designer if they will be sending colour and fabric swatches before they finalise the outfit for you.
Keep A Track Of The Payment Procedure
Check with the designer or the manager of the store regarding payment procedures and mode of payment. This will help to avoid fraudulent transactions and also have clarity on payment cycle as a lot of designers offer EMI payments too!

Do Your Research And Ask Questions
Before you schedule a video session for your lehenga, do a little research on what work you are looking at and ask relevant questions. This is the one time to collate all your information before you shortlist your wedding lehenga. For instance, if you stay abroad and are not going to be available for trials and fittings, ask them if that would work for them.
If you are getting a custom made piece or buying off the rack, ensure you have delivery timelines all on email. Check with the designer on how would the process work if there are any delays due to the pandemic and lockdown across different states and cities beforehand to avoid any confusion later.
Check The Lehenga Under Different Lights
Not all lights are equal! That is why once you have finalised your lehenga, make sure you check it under different lights over a video call or check for images under natural light. This is crucial as the colour and shade of the lehenga can look drastically different in nature light vs yellow light so it’s always better to be sure before you buy the product!
Talk To The Designer
While not many platforms offer this, WedMeGood Bridal Shopping does! All you need to do is pick the lehenga you love and click on it on our bridal shopping catalogue and you can opt for the option to ‘chat with the designer’ on it! As simple as that.
Ask about customisation BEFORE buying the lehenga!
Want a different blouse or want a second dupatta added in? Ask about all these changes before you purchase the final product, that way the designer or store can tell you all about the charges and way forward.
