It seems that most bridal package includes actual day photography. Are there options that cost much lesser if we opt for a package without the AD photography as we have already have a photographer we will like to engage.
I will suggest to go wedding fair more often and know what is the basic package may include. To call BS for details is not very advisable as sometime the way they talk may give wrong impression. Know what budget you have/willing to spend 1st, of course to bargain more things at lower price is always favourable. Girls easy to get implusive (me too)... but actually some of my friends they regret to spend too much for bridal package after few yrs of marriage, they will say rather to use the $ for a better honeymoon trip or house renovation, etc.

i have on hand a comprehensive bridal package to let go of due to last min intention to take overseas PS instead of local PS... if you are keen, perhaps you can email me at [email protected] for more details.. im open for any reasonably offer for the take over...
Visited some wedding fairs & got mobbed like streets of India. Imagine walking along Tanjong Pagar to look for a particular BS and we were mobbed so many times I had to tell them "married alr" so that the uncles standing outside will give up
I do have a bridal package on hand with Bridal Concept which I am giving up due to personal reasons.
The original package consists of the actual day wedding arrangements, accessories and local or overseas bridal photo session. It also includes different gown choices, tea dress, father's coat, 2 made to measure suits and 1 pants to keep, and many other throw ins.
The good news is that your partner and you will be able to choose your own customised wedding package from the many that they offer if you intend to save a considerable amount of money through this offered package.
A deposit of $1588 has been made and I am intending to release it at $1000.
Anyone has My Dream Wedding or Thompson wedding package to share? Any feedback or things that I should note when I make a trip down? How do you find the service, gown selection, photography? Pls advice. Thks!!!
my email is [email protected]
Hi Angelia, did u managed to try the gowns at Thompson? The 3288, 40pcs image is of what size n album type? The album in between got any lines/separator? Managed to c other bs? Let me know yea. Cheers!
I have an awful experience with one of the bridal shops which located at Raffles Hotel Arcade.
Been signed up a wedding package with them but last minute called me and asked me to top up for certain amount although I have paid my deposit. Reason being given? They calculate the price wrongly. OMG!!! And they insisted I have to pay the extra if I want to get everything listed in the invoice. Is that something commonly happen in this industry? Can I fight with them and get what they have listed in the invoice without paying them extra? I am so confuse now.
Hi Wentan81, I went to Sophia Collection when I am looking around for BS. I find that their service is quite good as their respective disciplines will come to talk to you personally. They also won't force you to buy. However their price is quite expensive so in the end, I chose Rico-A-Mona instead of them.
As for Divine Couture, I read the reviews from the forum and it seems pretty good so far.
What I suggest is to for you to go down personally to the BS and talk to the people over there. The most important thing is that you are comfortable with the coordinator as she will be the one who will be liaising with you most of the time!
In terms of hidden costs, look out for any limited selection of gowns such as new gowns or latest collections as some BS will charge more and are not inclusive of the bridal package.
Also check with them whether there are any extra charges if the day of your PS is raining. Check whether there's any transport provided for your PS as sometimes they charge extra for it.
Nia Nia (nianiani) > I dont think it is common. If you dont think they are honest, ask for all refund and choose another BS. You should have the right for ask for 100% refund as they failed to deliver the svc with the prev agreed price. They are considered breach of contract.
There is 1st time, hard to say if there is no 2nd time, what if next time they calculate wrongly again while you are waiting for album collection?
jingying (jingying) > Yes, coordinator is very impt, you must be comfortable with him/her. I am sad as my coordinator left after my PS, so everytime when I make appointment for selecting photos/viewing layout/etc has to deal with diff ppl, sometimes get postponed/delay also dont know whom to complain to >.<
Candy, thanks for the advice. I was sort of run our of time to start everything all over again. Guess you know why
At first, I was wondering how come there are so little of their discussion here and now I know why, cause alot of people already know their poor service and don't even bother to use their service. Anybody know why they move from Orchard to Raffles Hotel?
Hi, I have shortlist 3 bridal studio.
2)My Dream wedding
3)My bridal room
please share with me the latest wedding package with no hidden cost. Are their shooting professional? How is their service, are they able to throw in lots of things? Budget 3k.
Hi Luvine,for my suggestion is u should going to their boutique before u make your payment,for me started i went to BS to do my research also then also sortlisted a few to compared but in Bs was this story then went to boutique was anothe story,not flexible at all,anyway mine already over,finally i choosen Graceful Image at Tan Quee Lan St,i like their gown and services,they allow me tried before i commit.
Hi Luvine, I agree with Liow Way Ting. It also depends on your preferences. You can try to look in the forums of those BS you have selected and take a look at their comments.
Also set your budget beforehand so you will know which ones are not suitable for you. Remember to also check for hidden costs such as transportation and the selection of gowns, whether you can choose new or latest gowns without further costs.
Thanks alot for all yr advises guys! I went down to these 3 BS, they have pros n cons.. But i'm still deciding, anyone took package with the above 3 Bs can yr share yr packages n photos with me? Thanks! Appreciate! [email protected]
hi everyone i'm new here. am looking around for a good boutique too. have just started planning and heard some reivews on Julia's wedding news and LaBelle couture - any tips or advice which is better in terms of quality and service?? TIA!!
i was driving pass commonwealth and saw this bridal studio along main road facing the MRT track. Didnt know there's a bridal studio there. i went to took a look, their service is very good and prices are very reasonable, giving alot of stuff and kinda different and their show room is big compare to those BS in tg pagar. Maybe the brides-to-be can go check it out. It's called Venlis,The Wedding Planner.
I didnt signed as my wedding is next year april but i will put them into consideration.
i got my package with 600+ pictures and a journalistic photographer cos the company rents gowns and partners journalistic photographer, so i got the best of both worlds. PM me if you want to see my package from Bridal Affairs.
