Saris, lehengas, salwar kameez, kurta pujami and other items can run costs upwards of £200 + each. And with so many parties in all Asian cultures, you need a lot of outfits to avoid wearing the same thing all the time and what’s worse people noticing!
At Asian weddings there is a lot of giving and taking of Asian wear as gifts, a personal experience of the founder of AsianBay Limited was after her wedding (which lasted only 5 months) she had received a lot of Indian clothing that she could not bear to look at again let alone wear again. Some items hadn’t even been worn but she threw the whole lot out all 27 of them. Ouch!
She often regretted this decision and thought that wouldn’t it be nice if I could have sold these items to somebody who would have appreciated them more than me?? They all cost a fortune, so it would be nice to get some money back!
As time went on the founder met a lot of other men and women who were in the same situation as her, she also had a lot of friends from other cultural backgrounds that were invited to an Indian wedding but faced the dilemma of what to wear at these weddings, what was expected of them and what exactly happened. She spent years educating her friends and borrowing them her outfits so that they could also take part in these weddings that they were invited too.
AsianBay was then set up with these people in mind, AsianBay offers a free ask aunty advise service for people from other cultural backgrounds who want guidance and help.
How expensive is it for people from other cultural backgrounds who want to be part of an Asian wedding to purchase an Indian outfit only ever to be worn once, with AsianBay you have the opportunity to either buy or hire an outfit at very affordable prices.

AsianBay has recently launched its Wedding Hire range for both the Bride & Groom, stunning clothing at very affordable prices, “why do we cripple ourselves financially when we get married” they say??
AsianBay’s thoughts behind the pricing of the bridal wear is that couples should be able to enjoy there Wedding Day and not have to cut costs elsewhere because they paid £2,000+ for a Bridal Lengha for 1 day!
