Recently some brides-to-be and bridesmaids asked us to recommend some gowns for their cocktail, and asked us where to buy them. So, we went out in the market with INR 80k to explore some unique gowns for cocktail. And, to showcase the best cocktail gowns we bumped to Shahpur Jat, which is one stop destination for all types of wedding outfits. While we were out exploring these labels and popular designers, they told us about the recent trends that brides are looking for. They said brides these days prefer gowns over any other outfit for cocktails. The reason was quite simple that brides want to use them later as well.
But, before we provide you with the exclusive list, we would like to tell you that these designer labels don’t just do gowns, but have lovely bridal lehengas and other wedding outfits also. In the hope that you haven’t started your wedding shopping yet, we have got the unique and trendy designs of these designers that you can shop and add in your wedding trousseau. Let’s get started:
