L+F Wedding: Picking out my wedding gowns from The Gown Warehouse.

Friday, April 18, 2014

Funny how that one particular white dress can cause butterflies in a girl's tummy, and when the curtains falls and the boy is left gaping and touched seeing the girl in that white dress for the very first time. *blush*

I'm never that girl who spend all her life dreaming about how her wedding would be like, not to mention dreaming about that white dress, but i assumed that i wouldn't like a big fluffy wedding dress but would prefer a dress that is sleek and sexy and shows off curves like a mermaid cut.

We're 7 months away from the wedding and we've booked our hotel, booked our actual day photographers, videographers, photobooths and what nots ( blogged about the wedding preparation here ) and the next most important thing is to do our pre-wedding photoshoot! 

I was looking around online for a bridal studio and I saw this article about The Gown Warehouse being voted as one of the more wallet friendly bridal boutiques and i went to check out their website 
( ) and was mersmerized by their gowns so i went ahead to email them for an appointment which they replied shortly and confirmed the appointment! (:

On our way to The Gown Warehouse and truth be told I was feeling quite nervous! heh

When Leon + I held hands and walked into The Gown Warehouse, I was like jaw dropped WOW.. (yah i'm very sua ku ok lol) and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the gowns and picking out my favorites to try them out to see how i'd look in everyone of them! This place is like "Say Yes To The Dress" in real life, in Singapore!!!
Hahahahah I love watching that show, it's always so dramatic and absolutely hilarious.

The bride will be walking out to the platform with all the judge-y family/relatives lounging on the damn couch commenting on the wedding dress and some of the brides even get angry or whatever because their family would comment thing like "YOU LOOK LIKE A HOOKER/SLUT IN THAT DRESS" ...or like for example the bride walks in wearing a mermaid cut wedding dress, the mum or a clingy aunt  would be like crying and asking shit like "omg what is that CRAP? You should be wearing a wedding dress that makes you look like a princess!" 
*points at the poufy ass horrorville of a wedding dress* 

hahahah SO DRAMATIC but i love it.

If you don't want people judging you and clouding your judgement, why have so many freaking relatives go to a gown fitting with you?! As long as you like the dress and you think you look great it in that's the most important isn't it!

I've never imagine that I'd be so into this but to be honest I was totally "jumping out of my skin" excited but obviously still trying to keep myself composed. (hehe)

TGW's gorgeous selection of evening gowns.

Sat down with Eunice from The Gown Warehouse and briefly went thru the packages available, I can choose to rent the gown a-la carte, like if i only want a specific gown for the pre-wedding shoot or a wedding lunch (price ranging between $380- $1280), they are even able to customize a piece for purchase if you don't want to simply rent your wedding dress! 

They also have some really value for money packages that we can choose from which includes wedding gowns, Men's suits, Make-up Artist services, florals like your car decor/corsages/bouquets, Photography services etc.

Because Leon has already bought his own suits, The Gown Warehouse was able to customized the package to exclude the men's suit in our package for us. *thumbs up!*
Leon is so vain! He bought 4 suits already, 4 SUITS OK! hahahah high maintainence vainpot fiance.

For the pre-wedding photoshoot, The Gown Warehouse has 2 photographers and 2 makeup artist to choose from for the package, it was a tough decision because all their works are so impressive but after going back and browsing their portfolio, we decided to go with Jeremy from AlvinAdelineWedding ( They did a wonderful job for Leon's sister wedding videography! ) and Rosalyn as our Makeup Artist and Premium Orchids for our bouquet + boutonniere, can't wait for the pre-wed photo shoot  in May, woooots!

Time to "shop" for my dresses!

I'm really impressed with the quality and designs of the gowns from The Gown Warehouse! 

Before I went for the appointment, I did not know that they design their wedding gowns in-house, whatever on the racks is designed by The Gown Warehouse's designer and new gowns are brought in every season to keep up with the latest bridal trends! 0.0 AMAZING!!!

I'm just really glad that Leon is so into this as I am! I'd be disappointed if he was very disinterested and like, do this own thing while i check out the wedding dresses but he was very involved and went thru all the gowns with me and showed me his favorite pieces, together we picked out a couple that we fancied to try for the pre-wedding photoshoot + the actual wedding day. (:

For the pre-wedding photoshoot, I was going to choose 2 wedding dresses and 1 evening gown.

For the actual wedding day, 2 wedding dresses - 1 for the poolside wedding ceremony in the evening, the other for the dinner banquet and 1 evening gown as well!

Previously I actually thought of ordering my wedding dress online, but maaaaaan I'm so glad i didn't! You know with online shopping alot of times we can just close one eye and buy without trying and you know you will definitely look great in it?

Well, i guess your wedding dress just ain't the same!

The pieces that i thought in my head would suit me to the T, after trying them on- turns out to be totally no-go and the ones that I've never ever though I'd like, turned out to be fantastic! Hahaha

When i stepped out from behind the changing curtains in my 1st wedding dress, Leon and I kind of had a moment when he just stared and was just speechless while i thought i'd die from blushing too hard. haha snapped a shot of him when he was more composed! 

I love how glamourous this place is! Haha the multi mirror fitting area is so awesome and i can see how i look in the dress in every single angle. Here are some sneak-peeks of some of the gowns I've tried, some of them are from their previous collection and some are just in from their latest collection!

Pretty flattering A-line dress with sweetheart neckline and a beautiful rosette train!

This beautiful french lace with beaded off shoulder piece from their latest collection is totally adorable and it make me feel like a disney princess! One fine example of the kind of wedding dress I didn't think I'd like but turns out looking pretty fab!

The sweetheart neckline, peekaboo mesh cutouts and crystal details on this simple flowy piece, soooo gorgeous! This makes a great piece for the photoshoot cos for once i feel so mobile and super comfortable in it.

This is such a fun piece! hehe it was designed to be a slight hi-low dress so.. better wear a fabulous pair of heels to go with this one!

I call this one "the cake" haha, the sweetheart neckline and mermaid cut top makes me feel oh-so-sexy but yet the layered "cake" portion and the short train gives it the princessy touch!

This super flattering bling studded A-line will definitely catch the attention of everyone with that super long train. Heard that this piece is so popular with the brides that booking has been made all the way to end of 2015!

Gorgeous french lace piece with the really beautiful train which looks almost like it's floating, isn't it?

There are so many gowns that is suitable for those tall and super slim brides, super envious! But from the pieces I've tried and love I'm already having such a hard time picking the ones for the photo shoot and actual day ahhh~ hahaha but i guess it's a good kind of dilemma.

Cannot wait for the pre-wedding photo shoot next month, we've thought of some ideas and sourced for some photoshoot locations and ordered some props as well (hehe).

Indeed a very nice share.

I must say that it is also immensely helpful if you do a little research online and in bridal magazines to get an idea of what styles are out there and what appeals to you.

Before you start looking online at all the beautiful modest wedding dresses available, it's important to take the location, season and time of your wedding into consideration.

If you intend having a summer wedding at a seaside location in the afternoon, then you want a simpler dress that isn't going to weigh heavily on you throughout the day and let you feel comfortable and special for hours.

Thanks buddy for sharing this.

Keep doing good work.

God bless U!:)
