    Hi,
    Amanda's Shop is Amanda Lee Weddings.
    Address: 17 Cantonment Road Singapore 089740
    Tel: 62231366
    I've visited her shop but it's still very new, so not many gowns to view. If I remember correctly, her package is $4790. Think better visit her personally to talk to her.

    Hi Sue,

    do you know what does her package of $4790 consists of??

    Yes, Amanda is very friendly & I'm sure you'll have no problem telling her what you want.

    She din return me the form I filled up during my visit. It should be the fllwing:
    MTM WG
    MTM EG (to keep)
    4 make-up sessions
    2 hand bouquets (photoshoot & actual day)
    6 corsages
    accessories to go with WG & EG (Opening promotion is that you get to keep the accessories, not sure if it still on)MTM Suit for the groom
    Photography with Robin
    If you need a tea dress, you will have to rent from her. This is not in the package.
    There is also a dry cleaning fee for the gown after yr photoshoot. I can't remember if the $50 is included in the package already.

    That's all I can remember, hope it helps! [​IMG]

    Hi Sue

    Met up with Amanda on Fri... Agreed wif you, Amanda is friendly..... the service rendered also very good [​IMG]...... We were offered the same package (S$4790)..... my FH & I find the package px quite reasonable..... but still considering....

    How abt u?? Ve you decided??

    hi Carmen, Sue,

    Could check if we do not want Robin's photography, could it be deducted off the package price?

    And do you know which make up artists do she tie up with??

    Thanks!!!

    Hi Carmen,
    I was deciding between Amanda & Bridal Veil's package. Eventually, I took up the package from BV @ $4980 because it includes the tea dress, bridal shoes (from Leaping Lizard, to keep) and they also provide one more off-the-rack suit for the groom besides the MTM one.

    Hi LT, very sorry. I won't be able to answer both yr question. I think Amanda works with another photographer and if you choose the other photographer, the package will be a different price.

    Hello Carmen,
    I've actually gone down to BV twice before I decide to sign up with them. I was pretty lucky becos when I was there the 1st time, I spoke to Colin (Michelle's husband) and he got Michelle to pick two gowns for me to try. One mth later, I went back again with my FH becos he wasn't with me during my 1st visit.
    After some discussion, we decided to take up their package. Find them very friendly & service focus and Michelle really takes pride in the gowns that she designed.

    I've choosen Chris Ling. My FH & me visited Kim & don't have a gd impression.

    I sent an email to Amanda to request that she sends me a list of wedding packages. She replied by just saying how much it cost and when I emailed her back to ask what the package includes, there was no reply. Undaunted, I sent her another email to ask her what the package includes...still no reply! It's been 3 days!
    Does she think I can't afford to pay her?
    What kind of service is that?

    Probably she is very busy...... I had met her in person.... she is very nice and friendly... why dun you make an appt with her to find out more abt her packages... can also get to see her gowns......

    Really she is very nice... she will let you try her gowns and do a mock up for you.... can see how you look in gown with tiara and veil.... she even make an effort to draw designs that suit me during my visit...

    Hi flowee

    Had shortlisted Amanda..... probably will sign up with her.... to me lah, the px is quite reasonable... most imptly, i m very comfortable with her....

    Lyn

    I think it will be good to make an appt with any bridal shop to find out the various bridal packages offered... some bridal shops may "alter" the package item or px to meet your needs... it wld also be good that you speak with the designer, you will be able to know how comfortable you are working with him/her.... That's my opinion... pardon me for being kpo....

    naturally New Member

    Hi Lyn,

    Pardon mind me for interrupting... i just feel that u need not be upset, u see, it's a very competitive market out there, and Amanda just newly set up her own shop, naturally she's worried abt sabotages! Perhaps competitors have previously also emailed/phoned to get her prices??? So can't blame her, okie? Or put it another way, she prob feels that it's not fair for brides-to-be to judge her gowns by price alone, u may say that u need to see if she's within our budget, but then again some bridal shops can be quite flexible.... so best is to give her a visit if u're interested.

    Cannot sulk okie? Else how to be a pretty bride? [​IMG]

    Hi all

    I guess I'd just like to add a word here.

    My designer was Amanda before she left Silhouette. No doubt she's nice but frankly I've always felt a little uncomfortable with her. Even my FH felt that way too. SHe kept her opinion to herself and there was once when I told her I wanted to try the gown again, she didn't hesitate to show her mild displeasure. All I can say is she isn't very frank with her opinion and this is something which is what I don't like.

    I think she's rather temperamental. On the whole she's okay lah

    Advice

    How do you find her designs?? Do you like your gown?? Can share with us??

    Just curious [​IMG]... Did you meet or talk to her before you signed up with Silhouette?? Wat had made you always feel a little uncomfortable with her??
     
  39. advice

    advice Guest

    hi carmen

    I find her design so-so, but she's rather accomodating. My gowns now handed by Miah of silhouette.

    Like many here, I read about her from the forum and I quite like silhouette so I made an appmt wuth her. Like I said, she was rather temperamental, and can be quite glum some times. So frankly I was quite shocked by her mannerism having read so much good things about her in this forum.

    But still, dun let me hold you back. She's fine. Maybe She's just not the outspoken type. Or Maybe I'm a bit too sensitive. Perhaps, I went there with too high expectations of her (based on what I read in the silhouette thread).

    Hello,

    I have to say I agree with Advice, about feeling uncomfortable with Amanda. I haven't signed up with Amanda, but I visited her at her new premises.

    I was disappointed in her ability to pick gowns that suited my figure, and I am a petite size. Her dresses made me feel and look fat, and she didn't understand at all what I was looking for, even though I clearly explained to her what style of dress I was looking for eg princess cut, and I even showed her pictures. I have been to several other bridal boutiques where I didn't have this problem, so I know its not my communication skills.
     
  42. advice

    advice Guest

    Hi flowee

    I enjoy working with Miah. I'm not sure if he's the boss of silhouette but he's quite funny and candid. Maybe that's why I prefer working with him.

    as for your qns on whether i know amanda b4 hand, the thing is I've heard of her in the forum. Hence I made an apptmt with her. like I said, sometimes, she was bubbly and chirpy and some days, she was glum.

    Maybe it's me, abit picky also lah. My rationale is if I'm paying so much, it's only natural I should expect good service. I remember I once stepped into BV and was so put off by the service. even though the gowns are nice, I feel that we should not be subjected to some lousy service.

    et Guest

    Advice,

    I totally agree with u.

    Gals,

    In fact, the most impt consideration is that u muz feel really comfortable with the designer. My wedding is in dec this yr and it's only mid tis yr that i went ard looking (coz i had a really bad experience with the one i signed up with earlier). The lesson learnt: is the designer muz really understand and know what u want... so it's up to individual and maybe good/ bad comments about some we read/ hear shld be taken with a pinch of salt [​IMG]

    Juz sharing my experience and don't rush urself into getting someone u r not comfortable with. Happy shopping!

    Hi Flowee [​IMG]

    Its good to try a range of bridal boutiques so you can compare good and bad. My favourite suggestions are Kevin Seah, followed by Ted Wu. I picked these two for good service(very important to me) and quality of workmanship.
    Good luck!

    hi flowee

    have u tried silhouette? i met up with one of the designers there (heath) and he was very professional and friendly. not sure if silhouette is above your budget though. i found silhouette to be quite versatile and they have both nice evening and wedding gowns.

    hi flowee

    haven't signed up yet with anyone. wedding is late next year. i love kevin seah, but not within our budget. considering ted wu or silhouette.

    unfortunately i don't have any other recommendations for you. i've been to other bridal with cheaper packages but didn't like what they had to offer. i am still shopping around.
