I made an appointment and went down to Silhouette yesterday.
I was served by Minda who in my opinion is very professional and she made me feel very comfortable. Also while there, another bride was having her trial makeup session with Freddy(ie??). And when it was my turn to try on my gowns, he did make a few comments which was very assuring. And he's funny too.
However, my main concern now is with the cost. My FH is not happy with the pricing. In fact, after calculated, we find that Ted Wu is a tad (ha ha) cheaper than Silhouette. That is, if we take into account the photography. We're shortlisting Utopia and Photo Language. And perhaps Picture Box which I have mixed feelings about. Andrew Choi and Chris Ling are way beyond our budget.
I've been to 7 boutiques and both my FH and I are both tired. Also, I've to decide my choices very soon as my wedding is on the 30th May next year and every boutique we went to told me we've not much time.
Now, my FH is not even considering Silhouette (too ex) and his list includes Wedding Present, Divine Couture and Ted Wu. Whereas my list includes Silhouette (I have such a good feeling with this one), Wedding Present and Ted Wu. Reason I didn't go with Divine although the gowns are gorgeous was because on my first visit, the designer who served me (not Jessica I know but rather a Malay looking one) gave me the impression that I'm not good enough for the gowns. Without even letting me try the gowns, she made so many bad comments about my body (in all its subtlety). I don't think I will trust her to design something to make me beautiful.
Anyway, though I'm not (yet) a Silhouette bride, I just thought that I'll add in something.
