Are you travelling to India sometime this year to finalise your wedding outfit? Can’t afford high designer tags, but want something equally fantastic on a budget? Then maybe attending some of the 2019 Wedding Exhibitions India is the right way for you.
Wedding exhibitions usually have tons of existing designer labels, new work-from-home designers, and other boutiques showcasing their stuff all in one place. These exhibitions will give you everything from trousseau to bridal outfits, jewellery and other wedding related items.
Whether you are a bride on a budget, or someone who wants unique designs (never seen before on anyone else), then 2019 Wedding Exhibitions India is perfect for you. In this post, I will list down all the wedding exhibitions happening in various cities across India and some abroad as well.

Most of these wedding exhibitions are happening sometime between August and September. So if your travelling during these months, you should be able to attend multiple bridal shows.
Now, keep in mind, some of these 2019 Wedding Exhibitions India are good, some are so-so. You need to carefully look through the participant list before going. Most of these wedding exhibitions have their website and online page on Facebook, Instagram. So it’s fairly easy to know who is coming and exhibiting.
2019 Wedding Exhibitions India – June to December
Malika Fashion And Lifestyle Exhibition – Patna – 18th and 19th
You might not find anything bridal here as such. But from the pictures, I see lots of jewellery and accessory stalls. If you are looking for ethnic wear and indo-fusion casual wear or gifting items then this exhibition is a decent one to attend.

- Mobile: 09373102754
Boutiques Of India Exhibitions – Patna (22nd, 23rd) and Raanchi (25th, 26th)
List of participants include:
- Onaaya, Kolkata
- Avama Jewellers
- Soup – Sougat Paul, Mumbai
- Anshu Jain, Kolkata
- Rahul & Anushka, Delhi
- Motifs by Surabhi Didwaniya
I am not sure if these brands are all going to be exhibiting this year as well. But they have been mentioned on the exhibition site. From what I know about these brands, they are more to do with pret than bridal-bridal. But nonetheless, this is a more wedding-y exhibition to attend than the previous one.
- Location: Hotel Maurya, Patna (22nd and 23rd)
- Location: Hotel Chanakya BNR Raanchi (25th and 26th)
|New Delhi||July||5,6,7||Hotel Ashok|
|Ludhiana||July||24,25||Majestic Park Plaza|
|New Delhi||October||11,12,13||Hyatt Regency|
|New Delhi||November||8,9,10||Hotel Ashok|
Long long back I had attended Celebrating Vivaha wedding exhibition in Mumbai. It was amazing. Probably one of the first ones I had attended, but even so, the labels, outfits, new brands, it was all incredible.
I would personally highly recommend checking out this particular wedding exhibition. They have a good mix of both budget and high end for bridal and non-bridal wear. If you are a bit clueless about new trends, and new labels in wedding fashion, and want to see it all in one place, this exhibition is a good place to start.

Luxury 2019 Wedding Exhibitions India
If you are looking for high end designer labels that are ultra luxurious, then you need to attend these two wedding exhibitions.
- Vogue Wedding Show
- Bridal Asia
- Dhoom Dhaam Wedding Trunk Show
Vogue Wedding Show – Delhi, 2nd to 4th August
Lehengas by Jade by Monica and Karishma
If you are looking for ultra luxury for your wedding wear, jewellery and all other things, then you need to register for the invitation-only Vogue Wedding Show. I attended the show last year, and there were quite a few things that were surprising, did-not-expect-that kind of moments. You might want to read that post before just walking into this exhibition.

All things aside, the one thing that sets this wedding exhibition is the fact that all the premium designers showcase their latest work under one roof. It’s a fairly small space with big names crammed in together. So it’s a good place to hop skip and jump designers and get an idea of what you like the most.
- Location: The Taj Palace, New Delhi
|Jakarta||July||20th||Function Hall, Plaza, Indonesia, Level II|
|New Delhi||August||2,3,4||Hotel Ashok|
|New Delhi||October||6||Hotel Shangrila, Janpath|
The problem with publishing this blog post right now is, I don’t have the participant list with me. I am pretty sure even the wedding exhibitions do not have the list yet. The list only gets finalised a few weeks, if not months prior to the wedding exhibition date.
So while these wedding exhibition dates are good to know, you might want to research a bit more just before going for these events in your city.
Wedding Asia is pretty special to me, as it was my first Delhi Wedding Exhibition. I attended the show back to back for two years and both the times it was fantastic. Whether you are a budget bride or a mid-budget bride, wedding asia has tons of options for you.
The last time I was there, I remember I found a fantastic Chandni Chowk lehenga store that was doing such amazing work in under INR 50k. You wouldn’t find it in any of the names mentioned online, but it was such a find.

If you are around on the exhibition dates, I highly recommend checking out this one. You won’t be disappointed.
|New Delhi||July||19th to 21st||The Ashok|

Parineeti – Rakhi And Wedding Special – 8th August, Mumbai
I have attended this wedding exhibition in the past. It’s pretty good. They don’t keep heavy bridal lehenga designer stalls, but all other things are very good. You will find gota-patti sarees, and anarkalis, everything for your trousseau and other wedding accessories as well. It’s one of the more affordable wedding exhibitions in the city.
If you want to take a look at the review of this wedding exhibition, check the link below. It’s way back from 2015, but it’ll give you some idea at least.
- Location: Hotel Novotel, Balraj Sahni Rd, Juhu Beach, Mumbai
Jewellery by Khurana Jewellers
While Vogue Wedding Show is like super premium in wedding exhibitions, Bridal Asia comes a close second. Bridal Asia gives you a good mix of luxury and mid-range luxury. So if you are looking to buy high end pre-wedding outfits and also want to look at some bridal options, then this wedding exhibition is perfect for you.
Lehenga 1 – Anushree Reddy, Sarees 2 – Abha Dalmia, Lehenga 3 – Shyamal & Bhumika and Lehenga 4 – Pallavi Jaikishan
I wrote a blog post on Bridal Asia couple of years back. It has all of their participant list with collection photos. You can have a look. It will give you an idea of the kind of range of designers you will find at this exhibition.
- Location: Mumbai, 17th to 19th August
- Location: Delhi, 5th to 7th October
The Dhoom Dhaam Weddings
Dhoom Dhaam Weddings Campaign with Love & Other Bugs
|Mumbai||August||2nd, 3rd||St. Regis|
|New Delhi||August||28th||Hotel Ashok|
The Dhoom Dhaam Wedding Exhibition is curated by celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri. It’s the perfect place to find what’s in trend in luxury wedding fashion.
Runway Bridal Wedding Show – 30th, 31st, August, Delhi
What’s good about this wedding exhibition is you will find tons of new designer names. If you are interested in mid-affordable budget to somewhat high end ethnic wear, then this exhibition is good to visit.
I especially lookout for Rajasthani labels who do gota-patti and other bandhani work. You might find small labels doing amazing work in the INR 10k to INR 30k price point.
