Recommended Posts

i ever attended some weddings whereby some of the guests gave bad remarks. eg, food isnt nice la, inconvenient venue la, the bridegroom and bride so and so la etc. :dancingqueen:

LadyLuck - gd luck in ur choices after CNY! Hee... Hmm usually the BS will not make identical gowns... thats what my designer told me... If really don't have anything you like, would be nice to make MTM? Maybe you cn start sourcing for certain designs you like online or in magazines... then bring it along when choosing gowns... the designer will tell you if the style suits you or not... i lurve empire cut but it makes me look pregs.. haha and i cnt wear tube becos it jus emphasizes at the wrong regions... its best to let the designer "decide" what style suits you becos they r the experts...

My advise is if really cnt find then do mtm strt away because it takes awhile for them to actually make it... you have to choose colours... then they have to see if have the material and the colour you want.. then they will do the main gown first without the details.. then you go try and see okie or not... then they will do the details... then go try again... and all this must be done before your photoshoot! if not very rush and kan chiong to get it all done! which was what happened for our case... photoshoot was supposed to be in sept... but we only went to choose the gowns early august.. so not enough time... then push to oct... then stil not ready cos dun have the colour i initially wanted... then takes time to sew on the lace and beads... then our ps push to Nov... still have to wait to select photos.. print for us.. etc etc...

usually photo selection to getting photos takes ard 4-6weeks.. depends if they are busy or not.. so you must knw hw to pace yourselves bah... most impt is that you enjoy the process and let no one burst your happy Bubble!:P heee

but sometimes too many people follow you to the BS and there'll be a lot of different opinions/comments until you may get confused yourself. as long you like the design and feel comfortable when you wear them then ok liao mah. :dunno:

when i chose the gowns only my hb followed me to the BS so that i could slowly choose until the ones i liked most. :unsure:
