Bridal FAQ

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! We're thrilled you are considering KYNAH for your trousseau.
 

The KYNAH Bridal Process

Step 1: Virtual Consult Call This is a great option for brides who are ready to finalize their KYNAH look but need help narrowing down options or customizing it! This is a 30 minute zoom call so that we can explain our process to you as well as get an understanding of what you're looking for. We will show you some samples we have in house. Please note, not all samples are available to show.

Step 2: Style Book + Narrowing Down Options  After the call, we will send over a personalized look book with pieces discussed and some others based on the conversation. 

Optional - USA ONLY: We are now offering at-home trials for sample pieces we have in LA. This includes blouses, dupattas, and swatches. You must book a bridal consult first to be eligible for this service.

Step 3: Customizations, Measurements, Finalization & Payment  We then work together to finalize any customizations and colors. Based on this, we give you a guide on how to provide the appropriate measurements. Please note that no changes can be made to your outfit once your design has been finalized and we do not put the outfit into production until all details - color, cut, and measurements - are provided.

Optional Swatches: If you are settled on a piece but want to change the color, we can create a swatch. Please note this is an additional cost and we require 4-5 weeks so your delivery time for the final product will increase accordingly. This is only after the order has been placed for the piece.

Step 4: Production  We will be quiet during this phase but rest assured that we are working hard on your vision! Most bridal outfits take 3 months and you will receive some updates once it is ready.

Step 5: Alterations   While your outfit is in production we recommend doing some research on a tailor prior. Although we will be making our outfit to your current measurements, you should anticipate needing minor alterations to get the perfect fit. This is a standard part of the bridal outfit process across the industry that most women aren’t aware of when they are purchasing their product. Please note KYNAH does not pay for alterations so when figuring out your budget it is best to keep this in mind. 

How far in advance should I begin wedding shopping? 

In order to ensure you leave enough time for decision making and accessorizing, we recommend that you begin browsing 9-12 months in advance of your wedding date, purchasing 8-10 months in advance of your wedding date. 5 months prior to your wedding is the latest we recommend placing your order. 

What is the difference between shopping designer collections from KYNAH and directly from the designer?

Our HQ is in LA so not only can we be in your time zone but also understand your preferences and can help you get to your dream look. Also, we have our own quality check team in India that helps triple check everything to ensure it is exactly what you ordered. See more details about this here.

How long do your bridal pieces take? 

Most bridal pieces take at least 2-3 months to produce. We recommend having them in your hands at least 2 months before your wedding to allow you ample time to accessorize and tailor if needed. 

Do you offer payment plans?

We partner with Affirm to provide payment plans for our customers to best suit their needs.

Where are you located? Can I come in to try on the outfit?  

Our offices are in Los Angeles. We do not have a storefront at this time but we serve our brides via phone, zoom, and email. Schedule a consult here.

Do you customize?

Yes! We are able to customize the color, cut, and measurements of most of our bridal range. We do not do fully custom styles.

Who designs the outfits? 

KYNAH is a collective of 10 different designers around India. Which means we have access to all 10 designers full range for bridal pieces. 

Can you make a replica of another designer? 

We do not create replicas of other designers. 

How does KYNAH ensure my outfit will fit? 

We make all bridal outfits to your measurements provided to avoid major alterations. That being said, you should still anticipate needing alterations to get the perfect fit. This is standard in the wedding outfit process.
