Exclusively.In Launches Online Boutique for S. Asian Brides in U.S.

New York, N.Y. Exclusively.In, the members-only private sale site for Indian fashion, jewelry, and home decor, is now also every South Asian bride’s one-stop-shop for the wedding of her dreams.   On Saturday, June 25th at New York’s iconic Pierre Hotel, Exclusively.In will launch its new wedding web site, Exclusively.In Weddings, by hosting ”˜The Bridal Show at the Pierre’ from noon to 6 p.m., in collaboration with The Pierre Hotel and celebrity wedding planner Sonal Shah.

Featuring bridal designs, jewelry, and accessories by some of the U.S. and India’s leading fashion designers such as Ritu Kumar, Payal Singhal, Satya Paul, Amrita Singh, Art Karat, and many more, this indulgent, one-day shopping experience will offer everything from that perfect wedding sari to bridesmaids’ outfits to grooms’ sherwanis to exquisite bangle sets that complete any Indian ensemble.

“The Indian wedding market is well-recognized as one of the fastest growing niches in the wedding industry, generating a growth rate of 100% year-on-year,” says Anu Duggal, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Exclusively.in Weddings.

“From the moment a South Asian girl gets engaged anywhere in the world, we want her to consider Exclusively.In Weddings as her ultimate resource for everything wedding related – both for herself, as well as for her family, friends, and wedding guests.”

Between the outfits, jewelry, flowers, food, and hundreds of guests, an Indian wedding in the U.S. costs between $75,000 and $100,000 – three times more than your average American wedding, according to Forbes.

“It’s like having a professional, totally connected Maid of Honor. There is no way I would be able to get access to wedding designers like Shyamal and Bhumika, Ritu Kumar and Manish Arora, and especially to make little tweaks like shalwars instead of churidars, even if I traveled to India myself. I highly recommend Exclusively.In’s wedding services,” posted an exuberant Exclusively.In bride on the company’s Facebook page.

Tickets to ”˜The Bridal Show at The Pierre’ are $25 each (the amount is redeemable toward any online or offline purchase made at the event or afterwards) and can be purchased online at www.exclusively.in.

In addition to the June 25th bridal event, Exclusively.In Weddings, in partnership with Indian Wedding Site, is also offering a “Win a Trip to NYC” wedding contest for a special bride and groom.   For more information, please visit the website.

Founded by four Indian-American entrepreneurs in June 2010, Exclusively.In is the first fashion e-commerce site of its kind to market eclectic, high-end offerings sourced mostly from Delhi and Mumbai.

Last month, the company announced its acquisition of $16 million USD of Series B funding for its official launch into the U.K. market, one of the largest consumer markets for Indian fashion outside of India. Exclusively.In will roll out into additional markets, including Canada and India, in the upcoming months.
