A brides story with B Anu Designs
I found Anu initially via Google when I was looking for wedding outfit designers in the Bay Area. When I was taking a look at her website, I found a bridal lehenga that I absolutely fell in love with. It reminded me of a Sabyasachi lehenga but with a twist. The catch was that I would need to set up a call to learn more about it and pricing. I'm not a fan of video calls, but I still signed up since I loved it that much. From the first moment, we interacted, I was impressed by Anu's professionalism, passion, and straightforwardness. During this initial call, she told me a bit about herself and asked me about myself. We discussed the lehenga I had in mind and my budget. At that time, I told her that I would get back to her as I had a few personal challenges going on at that time and we were unsure of the wedding date.

Fast forward a few months and we had a date, but it was 3 months out. My husband and I immediately reached out to Anu and she asked us to come in to take a look at her collection. She spent quite a bit of time speaking with us, explaining the process, and getting a better idea of our vision. We didn't purchase that day as we wanted my parents to take a look. The moment my mom walked in, she was pleased with Anu's collection. My mom pulled out a lehenga that I hadn't even considered initially (it was a yellow one, but I was looking for something in the pink/red family). We spoke with Anu and Anu suggested some customizations to the lehenga in terms of the color, design, and style. I called my dad and he helped us finalize the wedding lehenga. During the same visit, we also finalized my husband's full outfit (head to toe) so that the colors would match mine. Anu took our measurements and we were ready to go. It was a seamless experience and my parents enjoyed it as well.

A few weeks later, Anu asked me to come in as my outfit's swatch had come in. I was so impressed as I wasn't expecting this. It looked beautiful and I gave her my go-ahead. During this visit, I also asked Anu if she could help with the jewelry, bangles, kaleera, and the payals. Although she didn't carry bangles, kaleera, and the payals, she asked that I send her some inspiration photos and that she would take care of it. We also tried out the jewelry at her shop and put aside a set that I loved. We ended the appointment by popping the Rose with a cute "say yes to the dress" moment.

With COVID, there were some delays in the delivery date, but Anu went above and beyond to fulfill our delivery. She also had my blouse altered to the current measurements (lost some weight) and even brought the completed blouse to my house. She also steamed the outfits and packaged everything so well for my husband and I. This was literally a one-stop shop!


We both received many compliments on our outfits during the wedding! I reluctantly took mine off after 15 hours of wear I will definitely be coming back to Anu's for other events! I highly recommend BAnu, you will not be disappointed.

Bridal review for Indian designer wedding wear for B ANU DESIGNS
Amazing amazing amazing! I first came to Anu for an last-minute outfit for my pre-wedding shoot. She helped me find a gorgeous Punjabi suit that worked perfectly for the photoshoot. The photos came out so beautiful and it was all thanks to Anu's expertise and I really appreciated all of her help, especially it being so last minute.

Fast forward to my wedding month: I had ordered a Sangeet outfit from a different place and it was a disaster. I knew exactly who to come to. Anu helped me right away with a custom, rush ordered lengha just 2-3 weeks before my Sangeet! To say I was panicking was an understatement. Anu helped me design a custom blue-green lengha with a short velvet blouse and gold ghoti style work. She always communicated with me even if it was super late at night so that we could finalize the rush order.

My Sangeet outfit arrived right before my event and it was BEAUTIFUL. It was so unique and fit perfectly. I got many compliments and it was definitely a favorite look among my family/friends. Not only did Anu make me feel beautiful on the outside but she really changed my whole demeanor the week of my wedding since my Sangeet was the very first event. There aren't enough words to thank her for doing that.

I also got my haldi ceremony outfit from her which was a cute yellow lengha with an interesting blouse style and a pretty pink border. It was perfect to wear during the daytime.
Since the wedding, Anu has designed a gorgeous sharara mauve suit for me with heavy embroidery on the pants. I definitely plan on getting my future outfits from her for all the events I have to attend. Can't thank you enough Anu! Highly recommend everyone to shop here for all your Indian outfits!

B Anu Designs is a bridal dream review by bride
I was certain that for my wedding, my family and I would go to India to find our clothes. When the pandemic hit, I knew that was no longer an option and it worried me to no end, that was until we learned about B Anu Designs. My sister and I immediately fell in love with Anu’s work and her beautiful showroom, so much so that we purchased 8 outfits from her for various wedding-related events, in addition to a number of accessories (jewelry, bags, jute, etc).
My sister went into Anu’s showroom and found two beautiful outfits, which she ultimately selected as her Sangeet and Reception dresses (w/ a few modifications that Anu happily customized). Both dresses (pictured) were unique and showstoppers.
My approach was to start from scratch. I had an idea, but wasn’t sure how to articulate the vision. Anu patiently worked with me to understand what I wanted, provided honest and critical feedback on what she thought would work and would not work from a design perspective, and then sketched pieces that aligned with my vision. Along the way, she would update me on the progress her team was making, shared swatches for my approval, and delivered beautiful pieces that I will cherish for years to come. On top of that, Anu designed beautiful jewelry that accompanied all of my bridal outfits for the Sangeet, Wedding and Reception. I’ve already worn a few of those pieces for other events since my wedding (I love them). Anu proved time and again that she was trustworthy, reliable and responsive to my questions or concerns.
Anu’s passion for her work and commitment to delivering the best for her clients is undeniable. Beyond that, Anu is a genuinely good person who remains humble about her craft and skills, which is rare in this business. I’m excited for the next family wedding, so I have an excuse to work with Anu again!

Bridal review for B Anu Designs
Thank you Anu and team for all your help in designing, fixing, and coordinating my wedding outfits!! They took me on as a bride when they were already at full capacity and made me feel right after home. They saw my visions and brought them to life. Anu and her team helped put together jewelry pieces, color combinations, and the most perfect fittings for all my wedding events. They even gave us cute accessories and alternate pieces to all our outfits so we could wear them a second time with a different look. More importantly, she saved outfits that weren’t even hers so I could look my best of my big day. I wish we had met sooner!! I recommend any new bride to start with B Anu Designs for all their wedding needs.. outfits, events, jewelry… Anu is your girl! I promise you will not be disappointed!

Review by Bride for Indian designer dress by B Anu Designs
Anu and her team are the best at what they do, designing elegant and fashionable clothes. They are really easy to work with and cater to your needs. Anu took the time to work with us to design our wedding outfits and delivered the master pieces, all while with a short deadline. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She understands the task and delivers every single time.

I had my Mehndi outfit customized by Anu and it turned out beautiful! I received numerous compliments! The process was super easy and felt very assuring throughout, and nonetheless Anu is amazing at what she does, therefore it was easy to trust that she would deliver exactly what I was going for and more! I would definitely recommend to any bride to visit BAnuDesigns if you’re looking for unique customized bridal outfits!

Wedding dream review at B Anu Designs USA
I was planning to wait until professional pictures came back, but can't help myself... Anu is so great to work with and her designer taste and expertise is amazing! My husband and I came in to see Anu's selection at the shop in early March. She was so sweet to let us just walk in after hours on a Friday night at like 8pm, that meant a lot to us. We were having a rush wedding in under 2 months, so we assumed we would only have time to buy outfits off the rack and not get anything custom made - but Anu made it happen! She worked so hard and got our outfits to us by mid-April!
I walked in with barely any vision of how I wanted my lengha, I just knew I wanted it simple and light pink and in my tight budget, and Anu really took it from there. She took this simple lengha design that I liked and turned it into a full on bridal lengha! At first I was just going along with whatever she liked, but it really was a "trust the process" experience. She made my entire bridal piece look incredible. I especially cannot rave enough about how gorgeous my dupattas were.
Anu also created my husband's sherwani, shawl, pagh, and juttis. She dyed all the fabric together so there wasn't a hint of difference in the pink between our outfits. Everyone loved how well our outfits complimented and matched each other. Preet's sherwani fit like a gem and he looked so handsome!
Anu is really great to work with, very nice and always helpful. She really knows what she's doing and if you have the time she can create awesome pieces for you.
Anu - Preet and I appreciate you and your hard work so much! Thank you for making us look so great on our special day

Bridal lehenga review for B Anu Designs
B Anu Designs is your one stop shop for EVERYTHING. She has the best customer service, goes above and beyond to create your vision, and is so incredibly sweet. She worked with me on my bridal vision and customized and created my bridesmaids outfits. In addition, I've ordered multiple pieces of jewelry and outfits from her and she never disappoints. If you want high end fashion at an affordable price, this place is perfect for you. She has earned a loyal customer! Thank you for making my vision come true and always delivering! Shoutout to Anu and her fantastic team!

Review for B Anu Designs California

 

Anu is the MOST amazing designer to work with!! Not only did she save my wedding dress, she made it better than I could have imagined! I was unhappy after working with a very non responsive designer who ended giving me a poorly put together lehenga 6 weeks before my wedding. I freaked and contacted Anu who called me immediately. She worked with me to figure out what I was envisioning and reassured me I'd have it before my wedding. The lehenga was absolutely the most stunning thing I have ever worn! I felt like royalty and I couldn't believe the intricacy and care it was crafted with. She worked with me about any concerns I had and talked me through her thought process for design decisions which was awesome.
I had bought earrings to match the previous lehenga which were okay, and Anu showed me these absolutely gorgeous earrings (that matched perfectly and made my outfit look so good!) And did not pressure me at all to buy any jewelry as I had bought jewelry somewhere else already. Im glad I did though because the earrings and the bracelet were perfection!
The proof is in the pictures, impeccable quality and work on the lehenga and the jewelry is just so eye catching.
100000% recommend going to Anu for any outfit! You will not be disappointed and your vision will be elevated!

Thank you SO much for the outfit you made for my wedding. It looked absolutely stunning and fit perfectly. I got a billion compliments and felt like a queen! Some even said it was the most beautiful wedding dress they had ever seen! It was obvious that your team put in hours upon hours of work for months on the dress. The work on the lace was so intricate and every inch was worked on by hand. I super appreciated your attention to detail, attentiveness and availability at any time of the day all the way from understanding my vision, creatively collaborating on ideas, designing the dress and communicating with your team. Seeing the progress along the way was a major bonus and although stressful at times, you always were able to reassure me that I will be ecstatic with the end result and I definitely was! I can't wait to work with you again!

Words can’t express how blessed I am to have found you all those months ago. Your designs are truely beautiful, a testament to the passion you have for your work. Working together to design my engagement lehenga you weren’t just a designer you became my friend. This quality is what sets you apart from the rest, you genuinely care about your clients as though they were family.
When I received my lehenga I was so pleased with the results and received so many compliments. People commented not just on the overall look of the lehenga but the quality of the fabric, the intricate work, the the neat stitching and the unique design. I can’t thank your guys enough for taking the care to make me feel like a princess on my engagement. 
Anu, I wish you all the success and happiness in the as you so deserve it. Your beautiful inside and out. So much love for you
xoxo

Anu, I don't have words to express on how to THANK YOU!!! You were a blessing to me and my family. The day you walked in to our house, you took over the stress of all the wedding clothes for not just me but the entire family. You made sure I looked different in all my occasions from cocktail dinner, mehndi, sangeet, wedding and the reception. You created a different look keeping in mind how my hair and make up should be done. You custom designed all my outfits along with the jewelry that I wore for all my wedding events. You went over and beyond by making sure you were by my side the entire 4 days to guide the make up artist. You were "The Stylist" I was looking for and you did the job well done. Couldn't have done it without you.

Love,
Neha 


Where do I begin! Anu was able to make my DREAM wedding reception dress for me in less than 3 weeks. I had originally purchased a custom designed dress in India and it turned out to be horrible. In panic, I asked my sister to help me find another dress and she found bAnuDESIgns on Instagram. She contacted Anu and asked her if she could help given the short notice. Anu agreed and took the time to understand my vision from the very beginning. My dress turned out exactly how I wanted it and Anu also paired it with the perfect jewelry. Anu was very patient with me throughout the whole process. During the same time, Anu was busy working on other projects and yet, she still made the time to take on another. I know she lost a lot of sleep during those weeks, which speaks to her work ethic and passion for fashion design. Anu and her team were determined to have my dress completed on time and they did! In fact, when I received the dress, it fit perfectly - I didn't have to worry about taking it to the tailor for last minute alterations and I cannot emphasize how precise it was to what I had envisioned. I am certain I will be using her services in the future and will always be grateful for her!

Thank you for such a stunning dress! Everyone is asking about the dress. "Is that the Manpreet toor dress?" "Where did you get it?" Have given your Instagram to all people asking me ❤❤ Please make my wedding outfits of the same fitting.

Thank you so much for my outfit! I am always hesitant when I order Indian outfits for special events due to bad experiences. However, you killed it! Not only did I get my outfit two weeks before the actual event but also it fits like a glove! Will most definitely be ordering again for future events!

I came to bAnuDesigns with a vision in my mind that I didn't know was possible to create within my budget. Anu was such a delight to speak with and I instantly knew that she had a lot of knowledge about the craft. She was straight forward with me about what she could create within my budget and created a whimsical piece for me for my best friend's engagement! I couldn't have imagined anything better and got so many compliments. It's hard to predict how a custom design will come out but with her expert input and vision, it was so easy to trust the process!

Gurpreet Bhasin 

It fitted like a glove when I tried it and I just can't thank you enough for creating it just like I asked. Couldn't have anything better for my baby's first birthday. I'll remember this. Thank yo so much!

I absolutely loved my experience working with Anu. I’ve had some pretty negative experiences working with Indian Designers and I am SO SO happy I found Anu with B Anu Designs. I last minute needed an outfit for a Sri Lankan wedding and I only had two weeks to get a custom design made. Anu was so attentive in listening to what I wanted and assured me I would get it in time for the wedding. Not only did I get my new outfit in time but the quality of the pieces are impeccable! I love my new Indo Contemporary Palazzo Sari and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future! I highly highly recommend Anu if you’re looking for someone reliable and quality work!

After my family and I lost our house in the fires, one of our many losses were the collection of indian clothes that my mother and I had shared - all connected to so many beautiful memories and stories written over the years. Having to go to 3 weddings this summer, I was so overwhelmed with how much I would have to spend and search for new outfits to start my collection again. I found Anu on Instagram and she immediately made it a point to call me and get to know me personally. During which, I feel we shared an immediate bond. I told her about my needs, she shared her input and after weeks of interacting my outfits were in production. She did her best to accommodate my budget and suggested jewelry that would pose as great starter pieces for my new wardrobe. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have met Anu and have gained a friend in the process. She is kind, caring and extremely talented in her work. I will forever recommend her to all my friends and those I meet along the way because the kind of customer service she provides is so rare. She puts her heart into her work and treats others the way she would want to be treated. She designs masterpieces that are unique and one of a kind and I truly believe this is what will always set her apart from the rest. Thank you for everything Anu ❤
