Why I chose to visit: Recommended by forumers for cheap prices and great quality.
My Experience: After reading comments from other brides about this place, I had high hopes. The owner pleasantly welcomed us into her shop, but in my opinion, do not have the professional knowledge on what gowns would best suit my body shape. The most disappointing experience is to put on the first gown and another 3 gowns after that - it did not feel comfortable at all, and I felt itchy wearing their lace gowns. It felt like it's "made in China" fabric. Although the price is fairly cheap compared to other bridal shops, I wouldn't want to be uncomfortable throughout my wedding day! A big NO-NO for me :(

Why I chose to visit: Curiosity
|My actual wedding dress|
My Experience: I had my reservations when it comes to custom made wedding gowns - they are expensive! But I wouldn't want to miss a chance to at least TRY one of their gowns. Louisa Michael, one of the designer attended to me on that day. She voiced out her opinion on what should be taken into consideration, when choosing a gown for my body shape. Their rental prices starts from RMXXXX, and their custom made gowns can double/triple that amount! But their quality and workmanship is Exquisite!! Their lace feels so soft and not itchy, and the pattern on the lace is beautifully designed. Be warned, however, they do not have a wide range of dresses for you to browse - but it's enough for me to make my decision.
In the end, I've decided to custom made my gown, which is a modified version from one of the dresses in their collection. I've got no regrets, despite spending a little bit more, but I just couldn't compromise on the quality that other shops had to offer. Moreover, this is my ONE and ONLY wedding gown, which makes it even more special. When my handsome saw me in my wedding dress for the first time on our wedding day, it blew his mind!
