I've been silently reading this forum for a few months now and not saying a thing. Now that my wedding is over, I thought I'd come in a share a bit.
My wife and I had a really good experience with Graceful Image. We spent about $4-5k there on a (rented) bridal gown, 2 (rented) bridesmaids' gowns, AD photographer, 2 suits, a tux and a few other things like flowers, make-up and car decoration. It was a fair bit more than I was thinking of spending, but Judy and co. made it a truly pleasant and hassle-free experience. On a few occasions, I arrived at GI angry and frustrated from work and traffic... but the folks at GI always turned things around. Nice folks...
So, here's wishing all brides and grooms the very best for your weddings... and for your marriages.
Me too have a great time with GI (1 yr ago) and i agree very much with this statement "On a few occasions, I arrived at GI angry and frustrated from work and traffic... but the folks at GI always turned things around." cos i went thru the same.

hey ladies who have collected your album...the softcopy pictures you got back. does it come with the art work thats being done for your album? i only got back the raw photos in softcopy without the layout and artwork effect leh.
Hi I juz went to GI today and I am quite interested in their package. Can anyone share their experience?
After paying got change of attitude or not?
Any hard-selling after PS?
Hidden costs to take note of?
The folks at GI were very pleasant and helpful all the way to the end. If you find the price okay, then go for it.
I didn't do the photo-shoot though, so I'm not sure about that part.
After signing up for the package, the folks will sometimes recommend more accessories (like a cumberband and cravette for the groom) or a different kind of flower etc. These will usually cost you extra, so do ask about the cost before agreeing.
i was a GI bride. i'm very happy with them. to me, there wasn't a change in attitude even after we sign up. they are very helpful throughout. like wong yy mention, they help you to plan when to take ps, fitting etc. however, there will extra charges to little things that they recommend. however, its up to you on whether you want to accept it or not. fyi, i actually top up 3k for my ps photo. very satisfied with them. we signed up with them on our very 1st visit.
if you are comfortable with them and their package why not. all the best. just my little comments.
This afternoon, i went GI to browse the gowns & asked abt the photography package. Was served by Megan...I like the gowns very much, haha...but she nv offer me to try wor...I dun dare to ask & also no time too...She told me there is 2 photographers & 8 MUAs. Anyone here to share which photographer & MUA u all prefer?
I've just went for my 1st fitting few days ago. Was very satisfied wif my MTM gown. Did a trial make-up too. But wasn't too happy with the MUA though.. Who's ur MUA? Can anyone share with me? I want to change her if I can.. Can PM me or drop me an email @ [email protected]
Hi Alicia, the wedding gowns in GI are aplenty and all, ok almost all lah, very nice leh. no problem choosing off the rack. in fact, the problem is too many to choose from. As for Evening gown, more limited. but if you're ok medium range figure. quite a lot to choose from lah. most BS are more limited in their evening gowns. unless MTM. as for kua, they only have 1 or 2. and its dragon kind wan. i rented one outside and brought it for photoshoot. =)
my photographer was tian sheng. very good and skillful! like his works.
didnt really like my MUA tho. but her hairstyling is very good. every hairdo was nice. but dont quite like th make up lah
Status: Just had our photoshoot yesterday. (you probably saw us at the Merlion)
Package: Everything from ROM to actual wedding day. (includes car... )
I was facinated when I first stepped into the shop. Looking at the gowns, there were just too many to choose from, most of them are sooo princess-like (my type).
Prior to signing up, we visited about 2 BS in IMM, about 7 or 8 BS along Tanjong Pagar, the road show in Suntec, about 3 BS in Marina Square.... ... till my FH complains non-stop and went hysterical. Still I couldn't decide until I got off the MRT at Bugis....
I entered the Tan Quee Lan outlet of GI and decied almost immediately after looking at the gowns. My hubby was hesistent because for a similar package it costs a little more and slightly above our budget. But I had already set my mind, so he had to replan the budget.
So far, it was well worth buying a lesser washing machine and dryer for. Judy had been very detailed and helpful to ensure that fittings were perfect. The MTM evening gown was simply pretty. She gladly accepted our comments and suggestions and provided very professional feedback. The final product was just great! (not going to describe more to make this [posting longer)
I went to their show yest @ bugis, just to share some of my feedback. Gowns were indeed gorgeous and photos were good. However, bad news for man as they might be nothing close to smart from OTR. i just felt their man's suit kindaf dull and it sure looks a bit over-sized, even in some pictures i've seen.
I must admit that they did well to explain alot of details, adopting a 'nothing to hide' approach with customer but i did felt a bit of 'hard selling' along the way by the co-ordinator who kept on harping us to sign on the dotted line before and after the show... perhaps the stress to meet selling quota...i guess its common in all bS.
Service wise, i felt easy in the studio, friendly atmosphere. No doubt a bit of hardselling experienced, there were no empty promises and expectation were laid out clearly to customer on how low can they go on the package and how high they can value add on them. We have designer and other co-ordinators chatting up with us in a friendly and pleasing manner that we will be taken good care of and not to worry...
In the end, we did not sign up as we still want to look around and compare given that there are still some minus pts that we take away from the show like the man's suit and we thought they could futher entice us with more stuff thrown in (like more photos, i mean seriously, come'on, you r gonna take 150-200 photos and 25 to choose from to do potrait, mini, CD what have you, is just too little!!)
My wife got her gown from GI, so I decided to have my suit made there too. Honestly speaking though, I didn't like the jacket and pants very much. Something about them just didn't fit too well. I had better luck before with a suit from Far East Plaza, and a few pairs of pants from Queensway Tailor.
The gowns are great though, and so is the service. But watch out for additional items along the way. They always recommend more stuff, like different flowers, a special tie/ cumberband etc. These will cost you extra.
Sorry for the late reply. Had been busy with the renovation of our flat and with work lately... I had not collected my photos yet as GI is working on the layout. we had seen and chosen the pics, finalised the layout and is currently waiting for the photos to be developed. The photos are well taken and we had a hard time choosing the pics... so we ended up purchasing more pics... but it was worth it...=)
