The shop itself is on Belgrave Road, which is a road full of asian clothes shops (a list of all the shops on Belgrave Road can be found here)
After finding the shop, we went in and mentioned we'd see an outfit at the Asiana Show, and the next thing you know there it was in front of us. I tried it on even though it was a size 14 and far too big for me! The sales assistant pinned it in place though, gave me a pair of heels to try it on with and then (as cheesy as this may sound) I had that moment where you think "wow...this IS the outfit".
I tried a few other outfits on, in different colours and styles but I'd already decided which one I liked best.
So I'd picked the outfit, what next??
The assistant called "aunty" over to take my measurements and discuss technical details. Did I want sleeves? How long did I want the top? Did I want a netted underskirt?
It was all pretty standard although one major change I made was to have more embroidery on the dupatta. Most of the outfits from Arinder Bhullar tend to have quite light/plain dupattas (you can see for youself by checking out photos I took from Arinder Bhullar catwalk show)
After my order had been written up, they took my contact details and I paid a 50% deposit. I was told the outfit would be ready in 4 weeks, but if there was any delay they'd contact me to let me know.
2 weeks later I got a phone call from the store to let me know the outfit would be delayed by 2 weeks. Luckily I wasn't on a tight time schedule, so the extra 2 weeks didn't cause a problem.
When the outfit was ready I made an appointment to go in on a day when the instore tailor was available to make any tiny adjustments.
I must admit I was a bit nervous about how the outfit would turn out, I hadn't made too many changes compared to the original version but there was that little worry that it wouldn't be as amazing.
Thankfully there was no need to worry :) the outfit looked every bit as amazing as the one I'd initially tried on. It fitted almost perfectly and there was only one tiny adjustment to the sleeves which was done in store there and then for me.
My only complaint was that they hadn't ordered a netted skirt for me. I could probably easily have ordered one from any English bridal shop, but as Arinder Bhullar had my measurements and could get me one in the exact same shade as my bridal outfit, I ordered it from them and had it posted it out to me.
All in all, I was pretty pleased with the service I received, they were professional every step of the way - ringing me with important updates, they even rang to let me know when they'd posted out the netted skirt :)
I didn't get a chance to check out the non-bridal outfits in store, but they had some great accessories (my sister ended up buying a handbag too)
