HI,

THanks for your advice.

I don't know whether to go for big gowns for EG or a straight cut one. Lace or embroidery...headache man...

pinkapple,

Is yours an off-white WG? I chose ivory but scared people think my gown turns yellow..Hee..hee..

Hi Fish

Talk to your designer abt what suits you. Think they'll have the eye to see which style complements you best. Lace or embroidery ... have a look at the gowns they bring out then you decide which ones you have a stronger liking to.

Is ivory off-white or even slightly more cream? I chose off white for my gown coz I'm rather tan. Thot it still looked really white on me.

white

ivory

Mine is off-white. I just look funny in white - like too white. and I looked abit old in ivory & cream.

Hi Cherubies,

U have lots of time!!
You can come with a schedule (eg. by what month confirm what item), and stick to it.
I did that and planning for my wedding was a breeze.

Silhouette doesn't really "tie up" with any of the photographers. they recommend some, but you'll need to speak to the actual photographer for price & package. One that they recommend is Wesley Loh of Memphiswest Pictures : http://www.memphiswest.com

For the packages... see various responses above.

but most bridal studios that i went to eg Irene; Margaret; Ivory Aisle etc don't recommend corset. and i tried their gowns, din feel like they are slipping off. I did ask them whether i need to wear corset, and they say there's no need to coz they make the bones hold up the gown. I'm just wondering if Silhoutte can make the bustier gown stay without the corset.

I just saw Citibank's brochure... they didn't have Silhouette as part of the 0% interest thing. but I saw their ad in another brochure few months ago. Maybe it's a promotional thing. best if you can check with silhouette directly.

HI ladies,

How much does a packgage that inclu WG, EG & photography cost usually?
 

orchid

New Member
Delannie,

Silhouette's WG alone is abt $1.8 - $2K
EG is abt $600.
Photography can cost $1,500 (not incl day photography)

So you should be prepared with about $4-5K.

Hi pinkapple,

met miah...
he's so nice...
he let me try 3 gowns...and a kwa...
i love the second one... he even let me put on the accessories and a veil plus tiara...
this is the first boutique which gave me an overall look...

even my FH got to try on two suits, one chinese collar and one morning coat...tis is also his first time trying on the suits...

miah drew a sketch of my WG on the spot for me..
he's real good.
however,
sad.gif
the quote was too high for our budget (even aft without EG and photography).

pinkapple, thanks for your help!!!

Hi Orchid,

What style of WG is Silhouette good at? Who should i contact if im interested to try out their gowns? How many designer are there?

Thanks...sorry so many questions

Delannie,

there's 3 designers at Silhouette: Minda, Miah, and Amanda. u can contact any1 of them. Or simply call n see who picks up the fone... heehee...

I just walked in and Minda attended to me so she's my designer loh.

as for what style... erm... I should use the word "grand". They do embroidery, lace and beads. all very nice. If u're having a grad wedding, this the place to go.

what says u, Orchid?

Just go down n try try. don't needa worry, they're not pushy at all. n the best thing is, like Cherubies said, they'll give u the overall look so u know what suits u n not. so in the end even if u don't choose them, u benefit from the seesion. ;)

Delannie,

sorry that u didn't get a nice fone call.

yah. they do have lotsa off-the-rack ones. new n grand. mine's off-the-rack.

Hi Pinkapple,

Do i need to fix an appointment first before going down? Is it cheaper to get OTR. Who attended to you?
 

pinkapple

New Member
Hi delannie,

erm.. u dont have to fix an apptm I guess. I walked in the other time. but it'll b bette if u fix one... cos they might b v bz at time. so u'll have to wait a looooong time if u don't fix an apptm.

Minda attended to me. u might like to try the other 2 designers: Amanda + Miah (guy). They're less busy.
 

cherubies

Hi Delannie,

am surprised u got such a cold answer..
uhoh.gif

i called and miah picked up..
so he "entertained" me on my visit last sat...
lol.gif


wat pinkapple said is right, i was there on sat, they r very busy...there were abt 3 couples... then one couple sat down to wait... making an appt helps as they will be more accomodating.

i got to try OTR gowns... and they are lovely...
have fun...

Hi flowy

Hi flowy & fish,

hey don't worry. everything will try out find. since they're using the same mat'l n all. n ya design oso done liao rite? workmanship-wise I think no prob... cos I believe quite a bit of the sewing oso done by the other pp.

flowy, did u ask Amanda where she's going?

delannie

Guest
Hi flowy, i didn't ask for her name cos she sound impatient...i was surprised to got this cold call too as i always have the impression that Silhouette is really professional & helpful ...maybe i just called at the wrong time!
Don't worry, things will be fine...maybe this new gal can give more creative ideas to you

Hi all,

For those who are having Miah as their designer, can share your experience???

Reason being he's now my designer with Amanda's departure. Want to know if he's easy to work with.

Hi flowy,

Have you found out who;s your designer? I think we reserve the right to choose who we want rather than to leave them to pick a designer for us.

Just a thot.

Hi Fish

called today but Amanda was on leave...hehe... guess clearing her leave...

happened tt Miah pick my call..after reassuring me, he told me he will take over...not sure it he's being assigned to take over or decided tt he take over when he pick my call

ya...like to know how's Miah like...anybody using Miah out there??

no leh, pinkapple, din get to find out..

actually, not worry on the mat'l and workmanship...the thing is not sure if the design can be put across...(not sure if u noe wat i meant) afterall, Amanda is the one who design ma..

Hi Flowy & Fish,

Miah's my designer and so far he has been rather patient and helpful. Not to worry.

Hi girls,

went to Silhouette to collect my gown on Wednesday.

saw Miah working on this turqiouse (howta spell?) evening gown... so beautiful... i wish they had this gown when I was selecting my evening gown..
=p

fish and flowy,

I think Miah's a nice chap. so far each time when Minda's bz, he always come over to help me with little things like the length of my gown, then can-can size, etc.

so don't worry lah.
