A Modish Reception

(ft. Monisha Jaising)
Sat | September 30, 2017

I hope to make this an especially helpful review for brides/clients living in countries other than India. The reason is the luxury that the clients living in India have, which the foreign clients don't necessarily have - a physical Monisha Jaising boutique, face-to-face consultations, and fitting/alteration services. If you're a foreign client, I bet an element of


hesitation to order gowns online was the risk of improper fitting, delivery costs, and poor workmanship; at least those were my reasons to contemplate ordering a couture gown online. But, all of these hesitations were put to rest during my first conversation with a Monisha Jaising store manager, Saniya Ali.

I immediately connected with Saniya and if you ever get a chance to experience her politeness, I'm certain you would too. She first explored my likings and then suggested a few pictures from the website. Once I had selected the gown, we talked in great lengths about the color options. What I found especially pleasing was the involvement of Ms. Jaising herself in this entire process. She had valuable advise to offer about what color I should choose, the type of embroidery I should opt for and the fit. Before finalizing the purchase, Saniya offered to video call with me to show me a live sample in addition to sending a few professional sketches of the gown. I was highly impressed with their involvement and finalized the order. 

What followed after a day or two was a contract addressing the delivery date and some common terms and conditions along with my measurement request. Considering I've had some misfortunes with other designers going back on the delivery date, I found the delivery date in writing especially convenient. Saniya was quick to return my calls and kept me upto date with the progress of the gown. I was worried about every other wedding outfit order except Monisha Jaising because their customer service made me feel well taken care of. It was one less thing for me to be worried about; one less outfit to go mad over. 

And, finally, my gown was delivered to me by the promised date and boy, was it exquisite! Everything about it was luxurious and the measurements were on point. It was a happy ending and I loved every moment of it.

I'm thrilled to be sharing more of my wedding on my blog, so please stay tuned.
