@cmbr:  Could you ask the bride or someone in her family to choose (and get) one for you? They would probably be pleased to be asked especially since they have invited you to take part in their culture.

Maybe google or yelp can help! Depending on where you live there may be shops nearby you can walk into. I’m not sure if eBay or amazon has any? It would be worth a look!

@cmbr:  Definately get measured. I am assuming you would also need someone to show you how to warp the sari properly? I would still contact the bride. She might have a cousin or friend that she could put you in touch with. Let her know it is important to you to get it right and respect her culture.

If they are bad at communication unfortunately I think you will need to take control of the communication for things that involve your FI and yourself.

Do you live near any major metros?

I’m from Boston, and the Goodwills here ALWAYS have saris for sale!

@cmbr:  does the fiance have an extra sari that you could wear, if you’re the same size? I was brought as a date to a wedding before, and one of the other guests offered to track down a sari in my size for me to wear.

This is kind of late but utsav is a good site.

You can rent saris online as well. borrowitbindaas.com
