So your wedding is scheduled for November / December/ January and you want to buy the best for your Trousseau. Then You must be planning a shopping excursion to Jaipur and wondering when to go, what to buy and from where?

Sensibly just before Rakhi, sometime in August is a great time. All the stores have great SALE on at that point of time and you can get KILLER DEALS!!

If August is not Possible and you still have about a year to your Wedding then February to March is also a great time and there are plenty of SALE.

LEHENGA: For picking your wedding Lehenga- first stop should be SARAOGI MANSION. Here you can look at Nikhar Fashions, Pratapsons, Utsav, Parineeta, Roopmilan. From here you can go to RANA's at Ganpati Plaza. Then check out ZARI & SATTVA at Narayan Singh Circle and VASANSI at Takht E Shahi Road.Now if you want something absolutely exclusive then there are many wonderful designers like Pallavi Jaipur, Nidhi Tholia, Monish Tharyamal and many many more...

SHERWANI: For picking a sherwani you can go to RAM NARAYAN SAFEWALE at walled city, RAJA SAHEB at Raja Park, Visit Munnu Khan the oldest masterji of sherwani in Jiapur for a custom made one. Or Manyavar at Crytal Plam Mall, Sardar Patel Marg 'C' Scheme. Well again there are some good designers that you may visit like Rohit Abhishek, Kirti Rathore, Himmat Singh to name a few.

CHOORA & BANGLES: Go to BAPU BAZAAR or one of the many bangle stores at the basement of SARAOGI MANSION and find yourself the most gorgeous choora.

FOOTWEAR: There is Metro in M.I. Road. Reliance Footprint at Sardar Patel Marg. Then there are  many many stores in the basement of SARAOGI MANSION where you get beautiful glitzy non branded bridal footwear. There is also LIFESTYLE at 22 Godam Circle and Central at PINK SQUARE MALL, Adarsh Nagar RAJA PARK.

Trousseau packing for a wedding in the family can be a very tedious thing. All the gifts and giveaways aren’t any good till they are packaged well. So if you come trousseau shopping in jaipur or come for hosting a wedding in jaipur or are interested in hassle free and gorgeous trousseau packing there are 2 places that are great. There is Vandana Fancy & Craft Centre in BAPU BAZAAR and there is The Modern Paper House opp SARGA SOOLI in Old Jaipur.

SAFA: This
should not cost you more than 200 to 500 INR and about 45 minutes of your time. Right in the heart of Old CITY- Just as you are at the end of JOHRI BAZAAR, look up on the roofs of both right and left and what you have there are assorted turbans in all hues and colors! Turbans known as safa in Rajasthan is a traditional headgear- still worn in the rural parts of the state and worn during weddings by grooms.Get a safa (turban/ Headgear) made for you. You can choose from the many fabrics that are available or take your own cloth.
EXCLUSIVE BANGLES: There is no place like the MANIHARON KA RAASTA in the old city to go bangle shopping. There are over 50/60 stores stocking up very very exclusive bangles. Try the ones made of LAAC.

WEDDING CARDS: The most sought after is JOHRI BAZAAR. I also like DHARTI DHAN near shaheed circle, just after you turn towards Narayan Singh Circle look on the side where there are loads of diagnostic centers and you will find dharti dhan. They specialize in Handmade paper.

JEWELLERY: There are no dearth of showrooms to go to. There is Birdhichand, Motisons, Tatiwala, Gem Palace, Amrapali to name a few.
