As a wedding planner I always come prepared with a small sewing kit / safety pins etc to help our brides with the slip-ups and pin ups. A bride recently asked me whether she should hire a Professional Sari Stylist (drape artist) or ask an aunt / cousin? Here is what I told her:

Professional sari stylists can get the job done in 15 minutes or less!
  •  They know the amount of movement you need on that day and therefore they know where to pin-up strategically.
  • They know how to divide the weight especially on those heavy saris so that your shoulder doesn't look weigh down, or the pleats don't create a bulge around your waist.
  • They can also pin-up the dupatta / veil over your head professionally without all the bobby pins showing up in your pictures! 
 Having said that, I also like you to know that most artists charge anywhere from $35 to $50 and some require a minimum draping service fee or min. gtd., plus a travel fee!

CONTACT us today so that we can help you find the artist just right for you!
No matter whom you decide to get help from – have a Trial – trial – trial!
(Can’t emphasize enough)

CONS for asking someone else
  •  What if this person is running late that morning? 
  • What if you don't like what they did, but you are too shy to express? 
  • What if they didn’t bring the right size safety pins? 
  • What if they require additional hands to help them put a sari on you? 
Before you know it, you will be surrounded by five people giving five opinions on how it should be pinned – Do you really need that stress?
