Did I just say ‘MY’ Bride? I totally did. For all the randomness I post on Frugal2Fab, it’s always nice to hear when a bride gets something meaningful out of it. This time, my bride got her dream Sabyasachi lehenga because of Frugal2Fab blog posts. Woo-hoo.
Let me take a moment to pat my back. Ok just kidding.
Harman, a neurologist based in the US connected with me a couple of months back. She was getting married in October 2018 and was looking for her bridal lehenga. Her budget for her lehenga was pretty good, but she was not sure which designers would fit in her price range. Especially if she could get a Sabyasachi.
Relate to this problem? I guess you’ll all agree that we all think we cannot afford a Sabyasachi. 99% of the times it’s true. We always think his designs are going to be damn expensive. Which they are.
But what you should also know is Sabyasachi lehenga prices start from INR 1.8 Lakhs all the way to INR 20 Lakhs. If your budget is anywhere around 2-4 Lakhs, you should definitely visit a Sabyasachi store.
Which Blog Posts Helped Bride Harman Find Her Sabyasachi Lehenga?
Remember, how I keep harping about Sabyasachi Lehenga Prices? I have shared quite a few blog posts on Sabyasachi Saree & Lehenga prices. If you are new to the blog, you should check them out too.
- Sabyasachi Mens Wear Sherwani Cost
- Bridal Sabyasachi Saree Prices
- Sabyasachi Wedding Lehenga Prices (older collection)
- Sabyasachi Budget Bridal Lehenga Cost
Here’s how I’d like to break down the prices. The pre-wedding Lehengas that you see on Sabyasachi brides, typically range from INR 1.7 Lakhs to INR 3 Lakhs. You can easily get a mehendi or day time lehenga in that price range. A good one that is from his recent collections.
The bridal lehengas – that’s a black hole. It really depends on the design, collection and a whole lot of other things. I’ve seen Sabyasachi brides in wedding lehengas which cost less than 2 Lakhs to Sabyasachi brides wearing Deepika Padukone Lehenga which costs 16 Lakhs. So one really can’t pinpoint on a specific price range.

But what I can tell you is that magic number where you can find lots of designs to choose from without burning a hole in your pocket.
Bride Harman’s Sabyasachi Wedding Lehenga Price – INR 3.95 Lakhs
Harman initially thought no Sabyasachi lehenga comes below INR 8-9 Lakhs! Honestly, even I thought that first. But clearly that’s not true. Now you know. While most of the other premium designers also have bridal lehengas in the INR 5-8 Lakh price range. Finding something under 4 is actually a good deal come to think of it.
It’s no wonder that you see more of Sabyasachi brides than any other lehenga designer. Think about it.
Harman coordinated her wedding lehenga from Pia Ka Ghar. For those of you unaware, Pia Ka Ghar is a destination store for Exclusive Bridal and Couture Clothing from Sabyasachi. They also sell a wide range of Sabyasachi’s sarees and outfits.
Harman directly picked her lehenga from the Delhi Sabyasachi store. Pia Ka Ghar made sure everything was perfect and the bride didn’t have to pack her wedding outfit all the way from the US. Pretty awesome,
Love Harman’s Wedding? Here’s Some More Details That Are Super Interesting
The Wedding Stage was done entirely by the bride and her sister-in-law
I spoke to Harman this morning. The one thing that caught my eye besides her lehenga and her beautiful wedding was the well-coordinated groomsmen outfits. She told me they were all local tailor made? Can you believe it?
They look so good. The reason why I’m sharing this is, a lot of you ask me where to find budget bridesmaid and groomsmen outfits. This is a good hack to use. You can play with colours and keep the designs simple
You know what you’re wearing, you know what your wedding decor and venue looks like. You’re the best person to figure out what will look best. Having multiple outfits tailor stitched is not only easy on the pocket, but it’s also easier to design these than go searching for the perfect pieces. Know what I mean?
