Generally, I've not heard of any good comments about Malaysian bridal houses, except for XT's bridal house, which is a Taiwanese company so that doesn't count. Most of the time it's all about the nightmares dealing with them, especially those who would force you to pay extra to choose more photos when you can't decide which to take out from the bunch of selections.I wouldn't say the bridal house I choose is damn bad because one of the reasons we chose them was because of the very good service we got from the salesgirl who handled us compared to other bridal houses we've visited. Read here.
Things changed when we met her the second time. Unlike you lucky ones who either can afford to pay for a damn good freelance photographer and rent gowns separately or those who get to use bridal houses overseas, in Malaysian bridal houses this is how it works... They give you a time limit for your shoot, say 5 hours or so. Mine was 8 hours including time for the make-up and hair-styling. So according to the amount of time you have, you choose locations for the photo shoot. We originally had 3 ideal places to go, but then the salesgirl gave us possibly the BIGGEST NO I've ever heard in my entire life. Oh like this you have to cut down on your gowns and styles you get because it is time consuming to travel, blah blah blah... Her bitchy face kinda shows a bit and Deardo was especially very annoyed that he commented that things really changed as soon as we made the payment.
|No prize for guessing did I chose this gown! :p|
Come to think of it, I feel stupid about myself. It's like we are the customers paying for your service and I'm supposed to be scared of you? WTF?! You know what it sounds like? It sounds like taking a taxi ride in KL. You as a customer, have to open the door and freaking
|Deardo putting make-up on his face for the first time... Or did he have other experience in kindergarten?|
|I call the hair the 'Adele's hair' and no wig included! All my own short hair! Amazing isn't it?|
|Sneak Peek: I love how the gown made me look slimmer and the hair-do was so pretty!|
|Sneak peek of my tailor-made gown which I'm totally in love with! :)|
Here's a true story I would like to share, which is quite cute... *wink~*
Before we went to choose the gowns for the photo shoot, Deardo and I had this conversation...
Me: You know how in Hong Kong or even Korean dramas, they always have this magical moments at the bridal house as they open the 'curtain' and the bride appears with the gown and the guy will have a jaw-dropping look on his face and goes 'nei hou leng ah' or 'ye po yo' (you are so pretty in Cantonese and Korean) even though you may actually think it's just so-so. I think you won't be like that, right?
Deardo: *with a 'that's bullshit' smile* yeah... I don't think so... That's sooo cheesy! Hahahahaha...
Me: *sharp stare~*
Then at the bridal house after trying out and choosing the gowns I want in less than 30 minutes (I know what I want full stop), I sat next to Deardo as the girl went to return the gowns to their original places.
Deardo: You know the first gown you tried just now, I really had the magical Hong Kong drama moment! You look really nice in it (plus some other obscene stuff he said which I shall not mention here)!
Me: Really? *sweet smile~*
So here's the gown that I DID choose for our photo shoot...:)
