As the world is trying to adapt to the new normal, the Indian wedding scene is also witnessing some fresh developments. To begin with, big fat weddings have been toned down to intimate gatherings with only 50 guests allowed. Wedding guests are now welcomed with sanitizers and designer face masks are the newest addition to wedding accessories. And let’s not forget how wedding revelries have also gone digital. Several couples have said ‘I do’ on video calls during the pandemic, while many others have attended wedding functions on Zoom calls. And now, it is lehenga shopping which has got a digital makeover in the time of coronavirus. Yes, you read that right.

In order to get accustomed to the new normal, Indian fashion designers have introduced virtual bridal consultancy services. Instead of visiting the store, brides-to-be and their entourage can shop the lehenga of their dreams from the comfort of their home. And it is not merely checking out lehengas on a website and seeing their pictures. A team of people takes you through the entire store and show you ensembles of your choice. In many cases, the designers are also part of the virtual consultancy to help bring the wedding ensemble to life.

Speaking about the virtual bridal consultancy service, designer Monica Shah of the label Jade by Monica and Karishma said, “We’re entering a new era of digital living. The beauty of ecommerce is that it breaks geographical barriers and brings you closer to your audience across the country and globe. We are very excited to launch bespoke consultancy services to couture lovers, wherever in the world they may be. That keeps intimacy and personalisation alive, albeit in the virtual format.”

To avail the virtual consultancy services for lehenga shopping, the brides-to-be are first supposed to fill up an online registration form. The time and date are then decided mutually. The registration process, however, may vary from designer to designer.

  1. Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
