One of the first things a bride-to-be (BTB) would do is to go "gown hunting". I must say it is not an easy task knowing, searching for the suitable cut, material and where to get it. For made-to-measure gowns (MTM) gowns, the preferred choice is PrettyInWhite located in Desa Sri Hartamas.
PrettyInWhite has been catering to clients all over the world; from Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, England, USA, Middle East and at home in Malaysia. This has provided them with an opportunity to service numerous types of body shapes and sizes throughout the course of designing and fitting wedding or bridal gowns. Their gowns are produced by a team of dedicated specialists comprising experienced designers, cutters, seamstresses, providing you control over the processes in making every PrettyInWhite Gown, unique. It comes with a good price comparatively.
The gowns for rental are beautiful as well. However the selection is not very wide and some of them have seen many alterations. Starting from RM350 onwards, though slightly pricey, PrettyInWhite can custom-design your very own shoes that will perfectly fit you. It also gives you that much needed comfort and support, which is what you will need for your big day. Though expensive, their quality and workmanship is Exquisite! Their lace feels so soft and not itchy, and the pattern on the lace is beautifully designed.
Pretty in White provides services such as:
Rental: You can buy the wedding gowns off-the-rack from RM950.
Made to Measure: You can custom make your wedding gown according to the design of your preference with charges from RM2500.
Buy back option: You can also sell your custom made dress back. Buy back percentage ranges from 20%-50%.

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! *photo taking is allowed in bridal shop*
The dresses at Pretty in White are beautiful. Many of them are variations on just the one theme, and that theme is decidedly princess. Everything features delicate floral embroidery, tulle of some variety and big poufy skirts. Some were mermaid, some were A-line and some were trumpet, but all of them had volume. And all of them were strapless.
I tried on four dresses, one of which wouldn’t go past my hips, two of which didn’t do up and one of which, mercifully, fit. (This is not to cast aspersions on the sizing, as I hardly expect them to offer sizes zero to 16, but I did feel a bit of a whale.) They were all lovely, but very similar, and both Aim and I were surprised at actually how narrow the selection was, given that there were probably a hundred gowns in there. I’m determined to have sleeves on my gown, and there was nothing in Pretty in White that I could consider, except a few gratuitous boleros and a bizarre mermaid-tailed ivory cheongsam.
It was also plain that some of the gowns had seen many alterations – par for the course for a rental facility, but the sewing work shouldn’t be that obvious. I asked about the possibility of adding sleeves, which prompted the other Emma to rummage around in the store room for ages to look for a recalcitrant set of sleeves that never surfaced. That would be a no, then. It is a beautiful store, I’m just incredibly fussy.
Personally, I like Pretty In White.
Pretty In White ni buat tempahan kasut jugak, kasut dia comfy, stylish. cuma pricey sikit lah, their price starting from RM350 onwards. Tapi bak kata org, alah membeli, menang memakai kan, he3 ;)
It's finally time to decide on the Wedding Dress! After visiting numerous Made to Measure (MTM) shops in Sri Hartamas such as That Special Occasion, The Wedding Isle, and Pretty in White, I finally decided to go with Pretty in White as their prices are quite reasonable. The gown that we've designed is inspired mainly by 2 Vera Wang dresses that I've fallen in love with and our theme of the wedding night which is Shanghai Tang! I've been fully measured and the actual making of the gown will probably take 2 months, so lets hope the dress turns out well when I go for the fitting. FYI, pretty in white also has a buy-back option and for the dress which is measured for me, they are buying it back at 30% of the price which is savings for me, and also, lack of clutter... Some say I should keep it for memory.
