Sure, the engagement ceremony marks the beginning of a new chapter, but so does its announcement! It comes with a barrage of new emotions for a bride - from pure giddy happiness, utter bewilderment to intense, emotionally-crushing feels. And trust me when I say this, because I felt every ounce of it when the tables turned around from me being a wedding blogger to a bride-to-be! However, it would be safe to say that it has its perks too.
My job at WMG involves skimming through an array of designers & labels on a daily basis. And of course, I wanted to make the most of my scouting skills to find an engagement outfit that was not only pretty but affordable too. Well guess what, I rightfully did! Not one, not two, I managed to scout as many as 10 designer outfits, each under a budget of 50K & help my fellow brideys alongside. If you're a brides-to-be who's planning to get engaged anytime soon, make the most of this compilation & slay on your big day without breaking a bank!
PS. Don't forget to scroll until the end to see what I eventually picked!
Starting off my list with this fully mirror-work lehenga & ruffled top that makes for such an uber-chic pick for an intimate engagement celebration. Top it off with the right pair of earrings & one can bedazzle like the utliamte star of the night!
