So, brand ki dukaan, take some gyaan –
Once you are married then you’ll have to let go of your pink pyjama with holes & coffee stains & also other ugly-fugly clothes you’ve been wearing since ages simply because they fit & are soft. Sad but true…
Remember – Not all expensive things are good and not all good things are expensive. Scroll down your screen to know how you can stay in style on a budget after your shaadi.
