      well i am on such a fast survey of bridal dress shops in lahore as im getting married in oct. i want to order the dresses in may. here is my opinion on different shops the famous one i came across

      i went to palki in liberty... a big NO... all typical stone/diamonties work..no safai in kaam and no style at all...
      i went to zardozi,think pink, ali bridal gallery...they have the starting prices of 1 lac for bridals but i didnot find any calibre in the work..too much gluing of neeley peele laal harey stones ,no nafasat in kaam...and the kaam didnot justify the higher prices SERIOUSLY...

      went to KOMAL CREATIONS in defence..there is an auntie in defence lahore who does work from her home..heard of her so went there... akhhhhhhh the random cut daana work ajeeb paindoo kaam she had.. wen u try to explain ur creativities ,she charges like in lakhs for that...she charged 26000 for a frok which just had a gala of kam primarily stones to a client in fron of me..and believe u me i got more or less the same gala done in 5000 at liberty and geting the rates of shafoon,dyes and stitchings ,patches it would make no more than 10 k or 11k...so check out...being rational is not bad..or is it?

      so i am all disappointed at the moment dont know where to goo..what to do... as i told in the previous thread..i want a long flared frok on walima and a gown on it...its not traditional..not every one can get the style done...i am planning to visit karma in a day or too... and there is a mall in liberty back where there is WEDDING ASIA... i will survey that too shortly... my budget is maximum 1 lac to 1 10 to 1 20.... MAXIMUM...

      share ur options and good placesss and economical as well and jaldiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

      find out makkah towers just off mm alam road in gulberg area. i got my walima dress from a place called zebaish in your upper range, and it was well worth the price.

      makkah towers has a lot of bridal shops, it has a jewellery shop called zahid jewelers, you cannot miss it. u will find a lot of stuff.
      I'm sarcastic because it is the body's natural defense against stupid.

      Seriously I did my research before I came here. And I did not know tht this is the new collection with all the swarovski/crystals. I have found a good karigar in Lahr,but I find it easier to see lehnghas readymade/stichted.the karigar in lhr has good kaam,but it was unstichted.i have got 5 wks for my lehngha to get ready. But I need to decide till Friday.ill have a look at that mall ur talking abt. Thnx guys.
      Ps I know I had faults in my spelling in my post before. I was typing it. Very fast.so don't mind

      Wedding Asia is too disappointing, they do have nice pieces too but i doubt their honestly, different prices for different ppl.

      I went there in search of my engagement dress, was with friends, they looked for and picked a dress, and asked the price, he told us it was in 40k range. it was a very heavy tailed dress, with more kaam on back then on front. they negotiated while i was quite, and asked him to remove all the kaam from back and reduce the size of the border of duppata. Finalized at under 35k range.
      Then they turned to me and handed it to me to check in front of the mirror, i nodded my head.
      Asked the guy again the final price with the pajama and a lining of silk to finalize the order, the price suddenly turned to 75k!!!!
      well.... not cause he suddenly decided to use gold thread, just cause he suddenly figured out the buyer is a foreigner not the Pakistani company...

      Such a sham!!

      I know exactly what you mean about the bling!
      I don't live in Lahore, or Pakistan for that matter, but when I was there in feb I went wedding dress shopping with my cousin from Jeddah. She had a similar budget to yours and only 2 days to do our looking and choosing!

      I know you tried zardozi, and initially we weren't too impressed with their designs but then the last one they brought out was a maxi/gown in the most gorgeous colours and really elegant kaam - no big stones or tacky bling at all! and really reasonably priced in that it was under 1 lakh. My cousin chose this for her walima dress.

      Otherwise we liked a few at the plaza behind dupatta gali, I think it's called wedding Asia or something? Downstairs 'faisal' had a couple of really nice designs, and his kaam is always done really well. We've gotten stuff from him and his darzi brother for years.

      My cousin actually decided on her wedding dress from libas e khas in liberty. You may have to keep asking them to show you different or 'lighter' kaam, but they did also have some pretty ones that didn't look paindu or too blingy. And they are happy to negotiate price, we got my cousins for less than half the price of what he originally asked for!

      Hope that helps, and good luck!

      Well I have been yesterday to weddingasia and Makkah towers.im dissapointed. It was all Mota Mota kaam and all full of crystal Swarovski.i didn't thought I would face many difficulties.i went to Libas e khas saw a lengha there.i liked the design but not a fan of that whole full crystals.he quoted me 2lakhs 75.he handed me a book over to place an order and I was like wht the hell.i need time to think abt u can't do zabardasti to me.and then he said take a token of 5000rps and think abt it.or agar nah order karna to paise refund ho jaaega. Itni chor bazaari hain yahan par.and wht if a make the same design by a karigar, the kaam will be good,but for me is the fitting important,the flaws.the banawat is important.sooo guys any other places/boutique in lahr?? I'm desperate

      saaaniya .. since u cant find a decent boutique in lahore and u cant order online and dont want to go out from the regions of lahore .. why dont u go for designer .. like proper designer .. if i had a budget like yours i wud go to mehdi/ali xeeshan/fahad hussyn/nikkie/nayna etc etc and buy if not a lehnga then a heavily embroidered shirt and dupatta and get my bottom lehnga made myself ... in case they dont entertain my budget .. otherwise i think some of them might even settle for your money ...

      no not many designers would

      saniya you need to put in your own input and bargaining skills as well
      u dont have much time left.

      if you dont want to be left with no option whatsoever, then i suggest u get more proactive, warna off the rack is all ull get in five weeks. a month is enough (if u realllllly press the karigar/shop wala) to make a custom made outfit. I got mine done at leisure in six weeks and then another week cos I wanted more in it
