Shocked? Initially, I was too. If you too had the impression that Anita Dongre does only premium bridal wear. Guess, what you’re not entirely wrong. The Anita Dongre bridal lehengas worn by Indian Brides are usually on the higher end. But recently, there are quite a few Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre lehengas that have caught my eye.
What All Can You Get Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre outfits?
- Stoles for INR 3000 a piece
- Casual Wear Short Kurta Tops for INR 6990
- Dresses starting at INR 7990
- Long Kurtas at INR 9990
- Tunics starting at INR 10,000
- Ethnic wear sarees starting at INR 19,990

P.S. These two lehengas are not Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre outfits. These are merely to beautify the blog post.
If you are someone with a budget of 1-1.5 Lakhs, then this post is a must-read for you. I should tell you upfront that Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre lehengas are more towards the simple design, basic lehengas. There are a couple of lehengas which are slightly on the higher end. But are amazing lehengas to stretch your budget just a tad bit. But first, we focus on Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre lehengas.
I am going to divide this blog post into two parts:
- Anita Dongre Lehengas under 50k
- Anita Dongre Lehengas for 1 Lakh
You didn’t know you could get Anita Dongre Lehengas under 50k, did you? See that’s why Frugal2Fab exists. Long ago, when I was doing my wedding shopping, I was pretty clueless about what would fit within my budget. Often it turned out I was too shy to walk into a designers store for fear that their starting range would be much higher than my max budget. Happens to the best of us.
The point being, I want you to know that you can easily walk into an Anita Dongre store if you have a budget of anything above INR 30k. Yes, 30k. Not 3 Lakhs, INR 30k. Here’s why:
Anita Dongre Lehengas under 50k
Yellow Brocade Anita Dongre Lehenga Cost: INR 33,000
One of the basic lehengas from Anita Dongre collection. I mean, you know you can get really heavy bridal wear in the same range. But the idea is having to own that first amazing premium designer wear. If that is your dream, then this beautiful lemon yellow lehenga is the perfect designer starter lehenga. You can get the same lehenga in a blush Pink as well.
Blush Pink Anita Dongre Lehenga Cost: INR 35,000
The lehenga skirt is beautiful and you don’t need to particularly wear it with the same blouse or dupatta. Be creative and jazz it up with a heavy work blouse. You can easily get those made or buy a readymade one from the market at a steal price.
In the end, you still get to flaunt your very own Anita Dongre lehenga and get away with not just one outfit but multiple outfit styles. Win-win I say.
Wine Chanderi Silk Anita Dongre Crop Top Lehenga Cost: INR 36,990
Now, wouldn’t this make for a beautiful sister of the bride outfit? That blouse is amazing and the rich colour makes the outfit stand. I do wish the outfit did come with that gorgeous embroidered juttis. Hopeful much? You can also get the same outfit in another colour as well.
Blue Embroidered Anita Dongre Crop Top Lehenga Cost: INR 37,000
I personally prefer how the wine crop top skirt looks. But hey, if you love it, you now know you can buy this Anita Dongre crop top skirt set. I definitely see an approach from her side to have a mass appeal. The price range makes it possible for us budget brides to dream.
How is it that Anita Dongre is doing Budget Lehengas all of a sudden?
A key reason for seeing these budget prices is because these lehengas are from the older Anita Dongre collections. The five lehengas shared below are from the Love Notes Spring Summer 2016 collection. I think these might be some of the last pieces in stock. The recent year’s outfit collections obviously cost an extra zero at that end of the price tag.

This is a peach, cotton silk, brocade lehenga paired a silk choli with extended sleeves and a U-neck, along with a net dupatta with border detailing.

The dupatta is simple enough to be paired with any other ethnic wear that you may have.

You also have the same lehenga option in a beautiful sage green. Both these colours are wildly trending in the wedding fashion circuit. So take your pick.
P.S. I totally did not know what a sage green looks like if not told. Thank God, designers write the exact colour shade on their lehenga descriptions. I mean, even a wedding blogger can be at times colourblind, you know.
Ruby Embroidered Anita Dongre Lehenga Cost: INR 1,00,000
A ruby chanderi silk, printed lehenga with an embroidered net dupatta with border detailing and a ruby printed crop top with extended sleeves, is beautifully embroidered with gotta, dori, pearl and zardosi handwork and reflects the rich flora and fauna of Rajasthan.

I think this is absolutely budget worthy. Maybe check with the designer if it can be replicated in other traditional colours for the same price range? The sheer detailing of the embroidery on the lehenga is worth the price. I mean just imagine twirling in this beauty with all those floral work spread out. Love it right?

Now, these are not Under 1 Lakh Anita Dongre lehengas. But around the same budget figure. So I thought no harm in including these as well in the blog post.
Remember Mira Kapoor’s beautiful Anita Dongre Lehenga? The one she wore when walking the ramp with husband Shahid Kapoor? Well, that one is at a steal deal budget price. It looks great for a mehendi function, very very cutesy.
Embroidered Brocade Mira Kapoor Anita Dongre Lehenga Cost – INR 1,29,000

So you thought the blog post is now over? Absolutely not. It’s not just the lehengas that you can get in Under 1 Lakh. Anita Dongre has multiple outfit styles befitting different occasions. I would highly recommend checking these out as well. It’s always good to try out different styles from time to time.
I’ve noticed that the price you pay for a lehenga is always going to be higher than what you pay for a say crop top skirt, or a Laccha (lehenga-Anarkali) or a floor length Anarkali. Sometimes you can get a heavier design for a lesser price than what you’d pay for the same thing if it were a lehenga.
