Here is the list of places of Mumbai where you can buy everything to make your wedding special and memorable.
Mangaldas Market, Bhuleshwar, and Zaveri Bazaar
These three markets are situated not far from each other but have everything you may need to create a really special atmosphere on your wedding. The first one on our road is Mangaldas. There you can find every possible fabric for decorating the interior of the wedding hall and different festive attributes to fit in the general wedding stylistics. Bhuleshwar is a little bit more crowded place, but the choice of goods is wider there. In Bhuleshwar, you can find traditional Indian wedding apparels, such as saris and lehengas, of any color, shape, and design. What is more, the market is famous for the variety of shoes offered in the Bhuleshwar shops. Thus, you can create your entire wedding look with no problems at a single location. Costume jewelry starts from Rs 150. Already-made traditional costumes and lehengas will cost you from Rs 3 500, and for the meter of unstitched fabric, you will pay at least Rs 200. The most famous shops of the market are Swati Raj with its fake but qualitative jewelry and Ruchika Enterprises with its Indrani silks. What’s good about Bhuleshwar is that the market is open on Sundays unlike with other locations that are closed at the end of the week.
As for the third wedding market, it will take you about five minutes to get to Zaveri Bazaar, which is the biggest diamond and jewelry market in the entire city. Big discounts and possibilities to bargain are always waiting for the customers there. However, it is better not to shop alone if you want to get a really big discount. So we strongly advise you to take your fiancé along with you for the wedding shopping.
This is the biggest wholesale market of Mumbai that has been functioning since 1871. It occupies the whole neighborhood. Here, it better to buy everything for the party, interior decorations and gifts for your guests. Such shops as Success Corner, The House of Cane, and New Bombay Bag Corner store gifts, cane and bamboo products, and bags. Some people give this advice: it is better not to buy ready-made pooja thalis, but to but empty thalis and stuff them with incense stick holders, vermilion boxes, and prayer bells. Owing to the wholesale prices on the Crawford market, you can save money on the wedding stuff and plan your wedding budget in a smart way. However, note that this market is also closed on Sundays. So we strongly advise you to plan your “trip” to the market in advance.

Mumbai “Wedding” Markets – Shopping Tips
If you are on the Mumbai market, do not be shy to bargain. For salesmen on Mumbai markets, bargaining is a kind of ritual; in such a way, they enjoy the communication when haggling over the price with the client. We recommend you to start bargaining from the price that is three times less than the one offered by the salesmen. If he does not decrease the price, pretend that you leave; almost always, seeing that the client is going to leave forces the salesman to reduce the cost considerably. So if you want to save a bomb, learn how to haggle over the price with Indian salesmen and do not be shy.
