Fables Bridal Couture | Johor

FABLES BRIDAL COUTURE was started by a group of award-winning photographers in 2007. Their photography skills and impeccable services have impressed many customers, hence the bridal shop became famous and grew in a short period of time. Their ART & PHOTOGRAPHY concept is uniquely beautiful. They have produced some very artistic images. 

SA Joe is a good consultant and she will explain to you all the price you need to pay. June is nice, she is able to give you a good package. However customer was disappointed with her planning. Alice is a great consultant. She is not pushy, provides good advice on gown selection, explains everything and lets you make the decision. Overall, all the SAs are friendly.

MUA Eva is a very lovely girl and efficient in hairstyling. Customer was quite amazed by the different looks she created within a short time for the indoor and outdoor shoot.

Photographer (PG), the boss Mark is a stylish guy who really makes you laugh and smile. PG Wei Hong, a young chap, is not bad too. Overall customers love the photos taken by the skilled PGs very much, and had a hard time choosing! The BS does a good job in the album and layout as well.

It has limited choices of wedding gown selection and they look old, though it was not visible on photos.

June is a nice girl, she gave me a good package but was disappointed with her planning. There was some confusion during gown selection where she told us to choose from one section but another person said another thing.  On photo-shoot day there were 4 couples doing pre-wedding shooting. A lot of time was wasted on waiting for the other couples to complete their session. Communication was bad.

Sep 2012
Package RM4000 which includes :-
-1 Crystal cover of 15x24 or 12 x 30 Ablum(24 pages, 35 poses)
-1 8R album(21 pages)
-20 x 40 in frame (1x)
-12 x 30 in frame (1x)
- 11 x 14 in frame (2x)
- poster (1x)
-4R x 200pcs (20 poses)- which i am consideering to change to either a poster or 8R frame
-CD Rom (35 poses)
-7 sets of gown for bride and groom (excluding a set of casual,self supply)
June is my wedding planner, is quite blur. However, she is softer in a sense that you can manages to bargain for a better deal compare to other planner at Fables. They are not that really customer orentated as no drinks will be offered during my serveral visits. overall, working staffs are friendly. Make up artist Eva is good.
I was attracted to Fables as I hv seen some of d samples wedding photo taken by their photographers. Another main reasons was they introduced themself as the bridal shop is created by a group of award winning n skilled photographer.
Anyway, the photography i hv was only with Fables for barely 1 year and he is very young. Maybe around 25-26. I was quite disappoined with this as I expected my photographer to be 1 of some award winning photographer.
Surprisly, the young photographer was pretty skilled and I think everyone should be given a chance to prove themself.
Another minus points is that they have lesser choice in their wedding gown selections as i believe they reserve those very good ones for their exibition purposes.

For me, it has been great so far! My consultant was Alice...a short stout lady who looks unfriendly if not smiling. She has been not bad with her service and the best thing about fables is no hard selling or even the slightest pushing. They always tell u what u wanna know and leave u alone to decide yourself. My package cost rm 5500 as I top up photos to 45 poses in advance when signing the package.
And inclusive of quite a lot of things...wedding shoot 7gowns and actual day 5gowns (need to request for it tho)
1st appt was selection of wedding shoot gown. Although limited and old rugged, but it won't be visible in the photos, and me a fussy person actually took less than 2hrs? To finish selecting the 7gowns...partly bcos Alice is able to pick and choose and give advises. Then after we were done and hanging are the shop, I browse a sample album and saw a gown I like but didn't get to try, Alice note down that gown and oredi took measurement, said will alter and let me try on the wedding shoot day itself since the gown wasn't in that day. Indeed I get to try that gown that day and take away the other gown initially chosen.
We also had 2 days of shoot and usually there will be 3 couples taking for the day as they have 3photographers. From both days, I can see that they are very organised as a dedicated photographer and dedicated asst boy will do the logistic including matching groom's wear with the gowns. They are very aware of which gown the bride has chosen and select the suitable indoor setting etc. Mua Eva is also a very lovely girl and quick minded in hairstyling. Quite amazed by the diff looks she create for me within a short time  my indoor plus jb area ( we chose building the art gallery) was taken by the boss Mark...the stylish guy and who really make u laugh and smile  and our outdoor was taken by wei hong a young chap who is not bad too! We went desaru and unfortunately halfway downpour...he speed us to another part of desaru which is not raining (he called his contacts to find out) to continue our lallang shoot  overall we love the photos very much, hard time choosing!
Den our album and layout selection was quite a breeze too, they have done a very satisfactory job.

walked-in and signed the bridal package with them with no regrets! Best is they are not aggressive, and willing to answer tons of questions you have, very patient with you throughout from the day we signed the package till now that we have selected our photos :)

Actual Bride Reviews - Indian/ Christian Wedding

Reviews were sent in from Miss C. in Oct 2013. BTBs go online to research for their wedding preparation because there are people who're willing to share their experience and there's information you need, not a detailed report, but good enough to get things started. Kudos to Miss C for doing her part in enlightening us about her views on the vendors she hired. I hope there will be more people like that who don't just read-and-run.

Reception Venue: Crystal Crown Hotel, Klang

Review: Chose the cheaper option and food was awesome! Free food tasting. Presentation was good and portions were alright. Attendants were a bit too quick to take food off the table. The PIC Mr Azree was quite helpful and friendly. Pillars at the side of the ballroom, so its good, doesn't really block view. Reno done last year so hall looks nice. 2 projectors but gotta pay. Stage is ok for view from the whole hall. We took sound guys from outside so with 2 speakers at the front, it was good; the sound. Per pax was RM550, which is considered cheap these days, there are more expensive options as well. Free parking, they give a suite to the wedding couple.

Review: San diego photographer was ok. The outdoor guy was better. Make up was good and hair styling good too. Accessories lovely. Just was unhappy that the options they gave for rental was very limited. Service was good before and after payment. Pricing negotiable and you should request for more things to be thrown in.

Hotel Grand Paragon JB

Situated in the heart of the Johor Bahru city, Grand Paragon Hotel is approximately 5 minutes' drive to the causeway and 45 minutes' to Changi International Airport and Sultan Ismail Airport (SENAI). It is located beside the Tebrau Highway, the main thoroughfare that connects the city with Singapore in the South, the North-South Expressway and the Pasir Gudang Highway. A great location.

The person in charge Ms Hee did a great job in managing the entire wedding event and made sure everything runs smoothly. Mr Yazid who takes care of wedding dinner had made the occasion a very good experience for all the guests. Kudos to the Grand Paragon Hotel wedding team.
