Do you also go all gaga, each time our bridal couturiers share their latest bridal collections? But then also suffice with just taking screenshots of your favorite designs because selling your kidney for that Sabyasachi lehenga doesn’t seem like a great plan? If yes, you’ve landed on the right page!

We know how buying ready-made designer outfits can save you a lot of time and effort, but they definitely do burn a big hole in your pockets. This is why getting some of your wedding outfits customized from a local boutique is always a great option. Outfits that are made to fit your size not only look more flattery on your body but also leave you with the freedom to pick suitable fabrics of your choice. 

And to make the process a little easier for all the Delhi brides out there, we’ve lined up the best local markets of the city from where they can get good quality fabrics, latkans & other stuff for their wedding dresses.  Bookmark the list now, and get your bridal shopping right!

Shankar Market, Connaught Place

Located in the heart of the city, this local market is definitely a haven for quality fabrics and exceptional designs. You'll find all sorts of royal weaves and brand new colors here. The prices are relatively higher, but your negotiation skills can definitely help you get the shopkeeper come down to a fairly good price. However, if you don't mind going a little high on budget, it's even better because it's one place where you can dig out some extremely rich & timeless handloom pieces to add to your trousseau. So without second thoughts, you must include it in your shopping spree list.

When planning to source fabrics from Chandni Chowk, The Katra Neel market and the Kinari Bazaar are your two major spots.

Tucked in the by lanes of Seelampur, is this hidden marvel which houses fabrics of all types and textures. Feathers, ruffles, shimmer or silk, name it and you’ll get it all here. The prices too are quite reasonable, and you can easily get traditional handloom pieces at a great deal.

Nehru Place Market

One of the best wholesale cloth markets to source handloom and cotton fabric for your wedding. You can easily find offbeat hues of banarasi, jazzy sequinned raw material, faux fur for gowns & impressive geometric patterns for your mehndi in Nehru Place. The shopkeepers here have direct mill-access, so it is suggested that one can get freshest of designs at wholesale prices. Even though the prices of fabrics are fixed here, it can range from as low as 150 per metre to as high as 2500 per metre. 

If you happen to visit this market during your bridal shopping, do visit the HP Singh store. It’s the most prominent one (with widest range of fabrics) out there!

Where: Nehru Place, Lala Lajpat Rai Road, Delhi

Nearest Metro Station: Nehru Place (Violet Line)

Closed on: Sundays

Inderlok Street Market

Last on the list is this lesser known wholesale cloth market in northwest Delhi. Unlike other markets, this isn’t a permanent one, and is only set up on Thursdays. But it is definitely worth a visit for your shaadi shopping. Especially if you’re looking for some colorful fabrics, banarasi dupattas or semi-stitched suits in budget. You won’t believe, but you can mostly find fabrics and raw material for your lehenga in prices as low as 2k bucks. And you don’t even have to worry about the quality! 

While the market is put up just below the Inderlok metro station (across the road from Mc Donald’s), people often get confused. So, be careful. Also, most shopkeepers disperse by 4 pm, so it’s always better to visit it somewhere around 1.
