Wedding Gowns Selection

As Featured On Ezine Articles

I’m not going to describe how beautiful the gowns are. I think you can see for yourself.

Perhaps you may have different opinion.

Anyway, this post is about the gown selection process.

I remembered a female friend of mine told us that her boyfriend specifically mentioned to her NOT TO ask him along during gown selection.


Because it is a lengthy process.

Last year around this time, my wife went for her first selection phase.

Normally there are two phases.

The second one will be the trying of the altered pieces.

My wife took two days to find the gowns she really loved.

For the first time, it started at 6pm and ended at about 10pm.

She didn’t really see one that she really like.

On the second day, she went back to the Bridal Studio and stayed from 2pm till 8pm.

I was with her on two days after working hours.

For the ladies, the gown selection is a tedious process.

As much as they wanted to look perfect, at the same time, they may be seeking approval from others especially her husband-to-be.

How to Choose Your Wedding Gown?

As Featured On Ezine Articles

Many people emailed me, telling me that they are clueless of how to choose their wedding gowns.

When I first went to the Bridal Studio with my wife in February last year, we were clueless too.

For guys, it was really easy to choose. I just took 10 to 15 minutes to choose my suit and coat.

For ladies, my wife took 2 whole day to choose her gowns. The assistant who was also our studio coordinator took out at least 10 gowns for her to wear and she liked none of them. Gowns include wedding gown, evening gown plus tea dress and Chinese Kua

Her sister accompanied her on day one and her friends accompanied her on day 2. Her friend, who had some experience of helping her other gal friends to choose, told my wife that she must have this “WOW” when she looked at herself in the mirror.

She must literally fall in love with the gown and like it so much that she doesn’t want to take it down.

There were some occasions that certain gowns look terrific as an art piece but looked otherwise when on some body.

The coordinator was very patient assisting my wife during her trying and gave constructive remarks such as how she can look better or how they can add on some more beads and laces to make the gown look more glamourous, especially during our photoshoot in June 06.

As for husband’s feedback, I think it is also really important. We can honestly thell the ladies they don’t look good in some gowns. If they look fabulous in others, genuinely praise them and tell them that they look superd and gorgeous.

Husbands’ remarks and comments are improtant for wives’ reassurance and encouragement.

I have heard of situations that the husband finds it a waste of time to accompany the wife during the fitting. I’m not sure if you have heard of it or it had even occured to you.

Get them to accompany you and the process of gown-fitting can be so much pleasant and enjoyable.

Another useful tip is before gown-fitting, please cut out any pictures or photos of gowns with the prefered designs. Bring them for gown-fitting and show the coordinator and state your requirement. This can make finding the right gown for you so much easier and faster. >.<

One more thing – bring your wedding shoes along to see if they really match your gowns.

Example of Bridal Studio Package

Just to share with you what the bridal studios’ packages consist of, these are some scanned copies. Different contracts will differ; largely dependant on the bargaining power of the couples as well as flexibility of the sales person attending to the couples. (and also what is the power of the sales person (a normal sales coordinator vs a manager vs the boss)? Can he/ she make the decision to give you a better deal?)
