Wedding Hues Hyderabad

Hello again!

So, I'm back again after a long time blogging.. This time it's time to relive the wedding shopping experience!!

Wedding preparations can turn out to be very difficult, daunting and more importantly time consuming. Thanks to the internet it has been made easy. But, during my wedding shopping I realized that most of the good stuff is hidden in the beautiful lanes of India which are don't have a strong online presence.

So, with the posts coming I will share the details of all the vendors/stores/budgets/pricing etc., for all the wedding stuff. Wedding is the important step in our life. And every bride deserves to enjoy the wedding preparations. You need not necessarily have to spend big bucks to enjoy your wedding or to make it memorable. The beauty is to find everything perfect economically.

To begin with, we see an emerging trend of bridal lehengas even in the south Indian weddings. Most us of follow trendy designer wear Facebook pages. Online shopping give us a great idea as to what we want. But shopping in-person is always a great idea! (trust me on this) What I did was to save the  images/ideas and explore Hyderabad with my iPad full of pricey lehengas from the designers of Delhi, Kolkata, Lucknow or even Hyderabad. After a lot of research, enquiries and personal visits I came up with a list of reasonable stores in Hyderabad with bridal lehengas.

1. Nav Kala Kendra, Old City.
    They will see you only by appointment and you can find awesome bridal wear within your price         range.
    Address: Mitti Ka Sher, Char Kaman, Jumla Pathak

2. Kalakunj
    Kalakunj has 2 branches I have personally been to. One at Himayatnagar and the other at              Ameerpet. Himayatnagar store being a small one, you can extensively look at their collection with personal interest and sales girls helping you dress up in the bridal lehengas/sarees for you to have a better personal look and feeel of the attire. Ameerpet store being a bigger branch tends to have more variety. But both are incredible in their own way. Prices are very reasonable.(from 3000/- to 20,000/-)

3. Kalanjali
    Kalanjali has a wide range of classy stuff. To find a heavy yet elegant lehenga or saree model lehenga you need to spend between 10,000 to 20,000 rupees. But you won't be disappointed.

Also, follow some designers on Facebook like Taania Kandpal, Anushree Reddy to dwell into the idea of bridal lehengas. This will help you better understand what you want and what suites you!!

There are many more posts on the bridal shopping, bridal care etc I can't wait to post :)
Hope this helps




  1. Hi Anusha,

    Just read your blog about the Wedding hues! Great writing.
    I saw the last part of your blog talks about a Taania Kandpal. Would you happen to have her studio address or anything? Have you checked it out? What are your thoughts on her work? Thanks

  2. Hi Seerat,

    Thank you for the comment!
    I know that she is based out of Lucknow, India. She has facebook and instagram pages on which she keeps posting her designs.
    I did contact her a few times. She is prompt in her replies and her designs are appealing. I htink she is open to customize designs for you as well.


  3. Hey anusha
    I saw your blog about taania kandpal..i had sent taania 15000 in october 2015. .since then she hasnt been able to send me my order nor she contacted me back! Being frustrated had to threaten her for a police she finally replied n agreed on giving what ever outfit was ready at that moment that i can have my money back in any form..n since then she hasnt replied to my messages n no sign of her again! You are blogging about her. .what do you think is the best way to contact her?

  4. Taania is a fraud and u r blogging about her. How do u know her.Can u share her exact address with us.

  5. Hey Itasha and Subhadra!

    Thanks so much for letting me know. I do not know her personally. I came across her designs through Facebook and contacted her for a few lehengas/suits. SHe responded promptly and seemed very accomodating. But I did nor purchase from her as I did not need it anymore.

    Please elaborate your experiences. It will help others from unpleasant experiences.

    Thanks again

  6. Hey ladies
    Thank eso much for your feedback. I just did the same thing and has been in touch with Taania Kandpal for some outfits and was trying to find out her location and authenticity and I came across this blog. I thank my lucky starts to have come across this forum���� Thanks once again

  7. Taania is such a big fraud. She took around 23,000 INR from me and hasn't delivered the products. She never replies and even when she does.. she lies that the product is shipped or I am shipping it today. She is a scam but sadly she is still running her business because nobody lodges a complaint against her.

  8. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.

  11. Hello! I want to bring to everyone's attention that Taania Kanpal is the worst person one can deal with while doing their wedding preparations. If I could negative stars to her I would! She posts all these photos on instagram/whatsapp/fb and claims she has designed/made them. I paid INR 10K to her and got one simple salwaar kameez after my wedding and after several thousands calls. I live in the US and I cannot wear my clothes during the wedding time and they are packed away as is now! I in fact sent her photos of how I wanted my dresses and there were suppose to be two dresses for 10K but I only got one! She started asking for 6K additional and said she'll give me the next dress only if I give her more money. I got no use of the additional dress after my wedding! I have whole chats/calls/emails, etc with her saved and I'll be posting those on as many forums as possible. Thanks, Anu

  12. Hi There, js happened to come across these reviews. Wish I wud have seen it bit earlier.. I had recently placed an order with Taania Kandpal designs luking at her facebook page and since then, its been super frustrating dealing with her. I have paid her full amount and till now I have no clue where my parcel is.. She has been highly reluctant to share the tracking information whenever i asked for it and is absolutely irresponsive.. Now my money is stuck.. Doubt if my dress has been really shipped..but i do have all msgs/chats/payment proof.its definitely a spam.. How can we report it for a stern action. . Thnx

    1. Omg I just happened to order something from her and made an advance payment of 4000. im freaking out now!

  13. Have you received it? can you please update us about it? @anx
