yeh...know what u mean abt wanting something different. when i went, i also got to try 4 gowns only...kinda of troubled me then that there isn't much choice and u dun get to see the whole range.
anyway, if u are going for the MTM, it shouldn't be a prob rite?
Pinkapple, which package are u taking up? when is yr wedding?
Dun worry abt having unique gowns ... I'm sure they'll deliver it well. The purpose of trying the gowns is really to see your preference and also what type of gowns and cutting is suitable for you.
Once you book with them ... they'll arrange for a 1st appt. In between that, they'll ask you to collect pics (from mags) of what you like etc. During the first session, you'll be able to try gowns and also show your selected pics to them and they show you fabrics etc and design yr gown. Once that's confirmed ... 2nd appt is fixed up and that will be for the first fitting and also trial makeup. Then it comes to the 3rd fitting which is just before the photpgraphy. And finally 4th fitting just before your wedding.
Even if a very common cut is selected eg. bustier gown etc ... there are still many ways to give it your unique taste ... it can be done thru diff patterns of embroidery, laces, unique colour fabric etc.
i asked abt if i take out the MTM men's suit from my package, how much can they reduce the price but it was only by $400. Since a suit costs abt $500 to tailor make, i decided to stick with it.
Actually, Freddie will tailor your make-up to suit the occasion. For example, he knows I like natural make-up - I told him so during our trail session but for the photoshoot, he had it make it more "drama" 'cos it's for the cameras. You actually can't tell on the photos ! So I will suggest that you tell him what you want or do not want. For example, I didn't like the double eyelid sticker thingy so I told him and he didn't do it on my actual day. I don't think it is appropriate for me to post Freddie's H/P No. here so why don't you give me your email address and I will send it to you. I can also share my wedding photos with you and you can see the all the make-up he did for me. The make-up he did for me was really pretty and natural. Don't worry, I am sure Freddie will be able to do your make-up the way you want to look.
I also paid a visit to Silhouette recently, Amanda's great, but I was not too wild about their fabrics though, but their prices are the most attractive for me. Can anyone email me pics of the WG so that I can see the final product ?
Hi Pinkapple / Sheepy,
Thanks for the tip. Do u know if there is a variety of tiaras to choose from or just 1 design? I'm looking for something simple. Sheepy, can u send me the link for yr wedding pics?
I think they have a variety of tiaras. Minda told me that they have a set of accessories to go the gown. so I just let her do the matching. I'm not into accessories so I think it's better to let her choose and match for me....although there this range of Israeli accessories that I like.
If u're v concerned abt the tiara, u can ask them to show u some on ya visit to them.
I'm a Silhouette bride too. Would need some advice from you on the make up artist tied with them.
As Freddy would not be available on my day and Amanda would be assigning Jasmine to do my make up. I'm quite worried, as I'm not so sure about her skill. Have anyone have any experience working with her and could you share your experiences??
I've booked the wedding dinner venue, but haven't settled the details. Have bought a flat but haven't started the renovations. Have booked a package with Silh but haven't had my first fitting.....u get the picture....
Cream: I think Jasmine has a website but i can't remember where i saw it. Anyone to the rescue?
just worry that the makkup artist will put something on my hair to keep it in shape. then difficult to change.
minda ask me to but from outside. if can't find then she'll see if there any that fits me in Silhouette.
I'm thinking of asking Kevin Seah to rent one of his gowns to me. I saw this one that really fits my fort canning setting. just dunno what much he'll change me. heard that the one I set my eyes on is his couture range. n it's kinda big so he'll have to alter if I wanta wear it cos I'm v skinny.
sorry to ask again. have u gone for ya fitting. who's doing ya fotos?
