"A bride should think about the pic picture when creating her wedding look. The gown she picks should emphasise her natural beauty, the colour compliments her skin, and she feels that she never wants to take it off. Don't choose a style just because it's the season's trend." - Jesline Ong and Jessie Wong, Rico-A-Mona Bridal

 

"Choose something that you feel happy and beautiful in. It's unfortunate but we've seen girls end up with something they don't love because they listened to what someone else liked instead." - Designer Qinwen Zhang, Digio Bridal

 

"Keep an open mind when choosing your gown. Opt for silhouettes that suit you instead of creations that may look nice, but are not really flattering. Also, listen to what others have to say, but make the final decision yourself." - Yvonne Creative

"Each fabric produces a distinct effect. The same dress can look and feel different in a variety of fabrics. For a structured look, choose fabrics like organza or taffeta. Fabrics like tulle and silk evoke a softer, dreamier look. Being comfortable on your special day is very important. Witth our hot weather, strapless numbers or low-backed options are great. You can also go for unique details like detachable skirts and lace boleros." - Designer Jolene Tan Li Wen, Love Story Wedding Boutique

“Stay true to yourself, but keep your options open. Designers are there to assist in helping you look your absolute best on your wedding, so don’t settle for anything less.” - Amanda Lee, Amanda Lee Weddings 

 

"You should have a rough idea of the kind of wedding you want instead of starting with a blank slate when it comes to conceptualising outfits and the reception. I always meet with a couple first and try to understand what they like before starting on the design of their gowns and suit." - Rachel Ho, White Weddings
