Actively searching for BS now - Thread for sharing


New Member
Hi Jaq,
your fren are correct.. some of my fren sign during the roadshows but only realize their gowns are limited or can't find their dream gown..and could be quite different with your expectation when you visit their shop. for myself , i make a wrong choise of signing wz one of the BS with a very good price but end up i had to forfeited my deposit to go for another BS, i am now taking Julia Wedding News..tho abit expensive but i love their Gowns so much, and service is very good as well.. most impt...their photo album very close to what i want( cuz i am super fussy with photo one
... you have to know what is your concern...price/ gown / photo ? once you make up your mind..will be easy for you to choose... i had shop for almost 20 BS for the pass 2 mth..maybe can give some advise for you...

Hi can anyone email me the package or any wedding shoot pics at [email protected] if you had previously signed up with Precious Moments? seems like there are so many good reviews they have a website cos i cant seem to find any...


New Member
hi yangjiexiang,
Yes she did. Dress delivered was as it looked on the web, and so was the prices. Looked really good! It's a pity that they do not custom-make, but seriously, even with the alterations, it was very very good buy. Quality wise was just as what you get from all bridal shops, nothing shortfall at all. And it's a new dress too!

Hi Blessing In Disguise,

I saw Vaughn Tan design on the website. I love his gown. Have u sign up yr BS package with him? How much would his basic BS package cost?


New Member
hi gals... just something to share.. i am a bride to be whom has signed up for U-Style as my BS. Its owned by a taiwanese couple whom are now PR and they are really nice.

When i was there for my gown fitting.. the photographer even offered to help me to take pics so that i can go home and reference. most BS will not allow you to..


New Member
Hi Ally,

I'm a PMB bride and a happy PMB bride thou
Apart from their photos and gowns, I signed with them for their reasonable price and good reviews too. Recently Just completed choosing my gowns and I must say I had enjoyed myself then very much. Most of their gowns are really really nice. Ever since I experience myself, it's true that their service is commendable as the staff were so patience and helpful with a fussy bride like me for so many hours without rushing the entire process. Thumbs up for their good after sales attitude

Btw, don think there is precious moment bridal website. Hope this helps.

Hi Lushvelvet

I am actually YJX BTB.

Thanks for your reply.
Have already checked with them, hope what I am looking at is still available.

Hi Tango Bride
I may also want to opt for DIY bec i dont want many of the items in a traditional BS package. Can you advise me on which photographer you choose and where you made you WG etc? I am new in this forum and still busily reading all the threads here. Basically, I just need a good photographer, MUA, WG.. Hmmm that's all! Anyone else can advise on DIY packages?


New Member
Dear all

I've finally decided on my BS - Flamingo, and my photographer - Avenue 8.

But let me just share my experiences at the following BS:
1. Kelvin Seah
(Good service but too pricey. Gowns start from $4K which is way off my budget. Tried my first gown there.. not bad.)
2. Viva Weddings
(Typical taiwanese style BS. The sales person very pushy. The MUA also quite fierce. The photography is too posey! Very obiang!)
3. Precious Moment Bridal
(Also taiwanese style BS. Similar to Viva Weddings although the package they offered quite cheap. Gowns also rather new.)
4. Ted Collection
(Nice gowns. Good service. But beyond my budget. Only MTM here..)
5. Flamingo
(Great service. Gowns not too bad.)

My two cents worth
All the best to those still deciding for a suitable BS.

Hi SG KLCC, I think I will most probably go ala carte but sometimes when you look at the package, you realise its much cheaper to take the basic package because they charge sky high prices for ala carte dresses. And going ala carte just means like deducting 50 per make up session from the photography or 600 for the photography. Which is so not true. I've been to about 10 bridal designers already and saw some photographers also. You're looking for actual day or pre wedding photgrapher? Must also see your budget, the good ones are really pricey.

And CYC, I also went to Kevin Seah... His gowns not bad, but yes very out of budget.

Annabelle, I went to Vaughn Tan and saw his gowns. He's a very nice person who will offer you loads of advice. I can't remember his package but its about 3-5K, I think.


New Member
I just sign up with J&C Bridal. I also intend to be a ala carte BTB, but some bridal shop they say not worth it, ala carte pricing can be almost the same as package. Cos the gown if we wa to bring out for PS, some shop they charge a fee. I went to see J&C, saw an album there which is wa I wa... but nt too sure I will get the same product ma.... start worry now.


New Member

hi all
i went back to PJ recently to check out the BS, photographers etc What I saw re: photos shocked me in that I didn't know their standard is so high. I have checkout all famous ones here when i go around BS - Margarets'; Julia; Amanda Lee etc

there is one particular good one who has photos of msian celebrities in his studio.

as for BS, i think their SS2 is similar to Tg Pagar here. i went to mont kiara, a high class reseidential area there with lots of expats (something like Holland Rd here)Only 2 shops opened - one of them seem pretty good, there's a copy of Vera Wang gown for RM3000.

let me know if anyone interested. i may be driving up again soon,


New Member
hi all,

went to PMB juz nw
the Guy Mr roland is very friendly n nice..
the basic pckg is v Basic n covers photos, gowns but all 1pc, hmmm...

add on photos may sum up to another $2000, but i guess overall q ok, cept no car de, lucky i dun need to get the ar, else better get car rental service ba, haa

i tink i will opt for their ala carte services such as AD PHOTOGRAPHY, MUA, etc...

Hi All, I am a BTB in June 2008 and just like to share my experience with hotels and BS. It is important that you list down what you need, want and your budget before any hunting takes place.

For BS, it is adviseable that you compare not only the price, but also the contents of the package as well as the gowns. If possible try them on before signing up with the BS. Be specific when it comes down to details. Like do you get MTM or OTR? Corsages included? (Dun be surprised but some dun include corsages enough for bridesmaids and brothers!) What about deco for following cars? Are they included? How many photos? What kind of sizes and styles? What will your album be like? Magazine? Digital layout? Any editing? What are the extra costs? It may seem minor but its a prevention to misunderstandings further down the road!

As for hotel, the first and foremost is of course your guest list and budget. Which is more impt to you. The food or the atmosphere? Or keeping within the budget? Its almost impossible to breakeven these days, so how much extra are you willing to put in? Are you having it on a weekday or weekend? Some places have different rates for Fridays and Sundays. One may consider Friday a weekend and Sunday a weekday...

I realised through my prep as well as a fren who's getting married in March that alot of minor details overlooked at the beginning can lead to alot of unnecessary works and misunderstandings. Guess if you get it right the first time, you get it right all the time!

Have fun!

Hi Fellow Brides

I agree with Janet...i m a bride of The Aisle.

u can refer to this thread to view comment on Aisle..

tHE Aisle is located at Hotel Winsor, off Macperson is a big bridal studio..they even produced wedding music alblum..u can see it selling @ e music stores..

Thumbs up for their wonderful service, reasonable package n beautiful photos..

They also offer me 30 photos for $2988 package..
i m impressed by their photos n gowns..they r very nice..they allow me to try more than 10 gowns even b4 they start to discuss with me their package..

Allow me to share the BS i visited
1) Seletar/HK Broadway/French Bridal/White Link - their photos(Taiwanese Style) n gowns r quite normal to me..did not impress me cos they don't really allow me to try e gowns..which makes me rather disapointed.

2) Vaughn Tan - Very professional designer..i love his service n design..but i can't afford his is $3k w/o photos..$3k only consists of just the gowns n suit for me n my hubby..i need to spend extra $2000 to source for photographer..

3) Precious Moment - I heard fr the forum tat they r e cheapest i m on tight budget, i went to try them..but it was very disappointing ..when i call them several times for appt, they keep telling them they r busy n ask me call them back later..they do not bother to return my e end i m very frustated n decide no pt going when e start was so unpleasant..

This is my wedding photos from friends all commented it is very unique n beautiful..

Just my 3 cents worth ..

Most impt find a BS tat u r comfortable with n e photos is up 2 yr expectation..


New Member
Hi Faith,
I think I know your hubby. He looks very familiar. He used to be from Bizad (NUS)? Hehe... Well... I click on your link to look at your photos. They are very pretty indeed.


New Member
Hi Space Girl

thk for e compliment..

yes my hubby is Billy..he is frm Bizad(NUS).
so u know him? u also from same faculty?


New Member
Hi Faith,

Yup! Same fac. But he is actually a friend's friend. Ask him about Lilian, he should remember. Hehe... small world.

Tell me more about Vaughn Tan? I am quite keen after reading your comments. I am also considering The Wedding Present and Flamingo. Any dealings with them? My big day is Dec 09, so I have not really gone down yet. But these are my short listed BS.

Any advice for me? Will appreciate it! =)


New Member
Hi Space girl

yes..billy remember lilian..they r gd friends..
do billy know u? can give me yr name n i ask him..

Vaughn is a NTU enginering grad who went to chase his passion for fashion designing..tat why i quite admire him.. he provide MTM/OTR gowns ..however his package consist only of 1)rental of gown 2) make up 3)hair accessories..this alone already cost $3k..
no bedhead photo/no wedding alblum/no father jacket or sis dress,etc..tat is e bad part...i calculate if i need to hire a freelance photographer e package is just photo alblum n cost $2k..u need to top up extra for bedhead photo/8r photo frame i stil need to source Father jacket, in e end i find it is more troublesome..
unless u have e budget n time 2 coordinate or else it is not advisable.However Vaugh is a nice person..even i did not sign up with him he stil provide very good service..

Flamingo.i find it very expensive too..they r not like Aisle to just let u try e gowns ...these high end boutique ...u can't really try e gowns which is putting me in size is not very slim i want to find suitable gowns b4 i commit to any BS..Wedding present-never ask b4..

i suggest for BS, GOWNS & Photography is e most impt..if yr BS dun allow u to try, u better dun sign.i have few friends who signed up at rdshow,then to regret as they can't find suitable gowns...then some BS will take e chance to make more $..if u can't find suitable one, they wil recommend u take those "special series" and u top up another few hundred dollar lor...

hope this helps..

hello all...
i am new here. i am a Nov08 BTB. would like to find out more about:-
1) The Aisle
2) Precious Moments
Would anyone share their package and pic with me? Also, since Precious Moments has no website, anyone know their address + contacts? TIA! =)

p.s. Faith!!...your pic is really v.well taken. v.pretty! =)


New Member
Hi Poppy Gal

thk for yr compliment..hehe..gald tat u like e photos..

1) the aisle - u can refer to this thread to find more on their service..

when i sign up with them , e package cost $2988..6 gowns(OTR) ,30 photos in 22 pg,in digital style. 2 Suit n pants for groom, 6 corages, father jacket*2, sister gown *1, 4 make up & hairdo, 3 in 1 portriat, 1 bedside photo frame,a small alblum, 60 give aways photo & all e stardard stuff ..tat is all i can remember now..u can go aisle ,,find Vicky n see whether u can offer u my same package ..
Aisle is located at Hotel Winsor,tel - 62896888

2) Precious Moment - i already delete e no.i know they located at upper thomson..near e LONGHOUSE..they have no website..u call yellow pg to find their no ..that is what i do..

i know for precious moment , their package is one of e cheapest ard..i tink $1988..

most impt , u need to compare e package cos i read on e forum b4 they only offer 15 photos for their $1988 package..when i calculate, 15 photos is not really enough for me to make a nice alblum..

n also whether e alblum have "white break line in b/w e alblum " ..usually for $3k n below package , they give u normal type alblum where there is this white line in b/w e it may affect e photo as a whole..

when u see my photo , it is actually 2 pages into one(right n left, landscape) white line in b/w..but for normal bridal shop i ask ard, u need to top up if u dun want e white line..

when i calcuate although aisle is 1k more exp than precious moment they r giving me 15 MORE pic in digital format..normal TOP UP per photo is $100 i calculate back it is still worth it ..esp for e quality in e photography..

i been to several BS seems tat e stardard package is ard $2888/3988/4988..depend on no of i think e key is to find a BS tat u r comfortable with their environment,e gowns, e pple..

Although my experience in Precious Moment wasn't gd i would encourage u to make a trip down to both BS n compare for yrself cos everyone experience can b different..most impt ask them to let u try e gowns to see whether u can find suitable one..n look at their photo alblum ( of real life couples,not model) ..there is where u can really compare n see which one u like more..
enjoy e is tiring but FUN since it is once in a life time


New Member
thanks faith for your advice.

i showed my bf your PS and he is full of praises & said we should really go down to take a look.

i saw that your pic comes with design n layout. (is it call montage?) is it that the softcopy provided by The Aisle is exactly the same as that seen on the actual album? meaning, it include all the design + special effect, instead of the normal pic by pic?

i am deciding btw Sophia n The Aisle.
