Venues for Small Wedding

More couples now prefer a small wedding because they want to celebrate that special day with people that they care about instead of distant relatives, friends whom they barely know. Moreover small weddings are more cost effective. You can go for a venue of your dreams, whether it is a place with an exotic view, a romantic resort tucked away on a remote island, or the restaurant with the most mouth watering dishes. There are more options because there is a huge difference in paying for a party of 30 compared to say 500 people. You can do so much organizing a small scale wedding, it is so much more personal. Having a small number of close friends and relative means you can design a menu that include their collective favorites. Invite them to participate in the fun, games, dance...

Here is a list of venues each with its own uniqueness. What you want is a private place for your guests to enjoy not only the food but the company of others. Hence big halls which require you to share the space are not ideal. Besides having the banquet indoor you can choose the outdoor venue such as poolside, terrace, garden, beach, deck and so on. Usually complimentary items/ banquet benefits come with 10 or 20 tables or more. With fewer tables, you have to arrange the additional stuff yourself or discuss with the person-in-charge about bundling them with extra cost.

May 2014
Duchess Place has been on tv for so many times which usually featured a wedding of celebrities. It was a right choice when we choose Duchess Place since they not only provided venue but also catering, dais, main table decoration and cake to make our arrangement easier. With all these beautiful set up, i couldn't ask anymore better than this. We are so satisfied and got nothing to complaint during our big day. GOOD

It was a house with a huge covered canopy extended on the lawn.  The layout of the house was just what I imagined. It had the English/British garden-themed feel to it and I was mesmerised. The tables and the chairs are all in white, nicely placed with a gorgeous pelamin at the back.
I WANT THIS PLACE. I WANT IT!!! “It’s RM55 per guest with a minimum of 600 guests for lunch and RM90 per guest for minimum of 400 guests for dinner. That includes the deco, the pelamin, the food and etc etc.”

White & Lacy, Damansara Jaya

Paulynn is an experienced designer (20+ years of dress making) who specializes in lace dresses and details. She would take a good look at her clients' body type before working on the design. White & Lacy's services include one-off creations, made to measure dressmaking and off the rack gowns for rental or purchase. Additional services include jewelry, custom made shoes, hair and makeup. They also have bridesmaids, evening gowns and traditional Chinese dresses.

Paulynn is vocal about her recommendations which would fit her clients better based on her experience. Of course you can disagree or add some of your own ideas. There is only a small collection of dresses to try on from her boutique. Custom made dresses cost at least RM800 depending on material and workmanship. Cheaper options are simple chiffon, full lace from RM2.2K onwards. With her attention to details, experience and genuine advice, you will leave the shop satisfied.

Feb 2014
Paulynn's feedback stood out among the rest. Spotting my natural asymmetrical posture due to nasty sculiosis almost immediately after I tried on one of her dresses, she honestly rebuffed my idea of considering a halter neckline. Instead, she recommended boat neck for me and rather loose-fitting waistline to cover-up the deformity. On top of that, she even urged me to decide by October to avoid last minute panic (based on her past experience with many frantic brides who lost excessive weight or indecisive ones who requested her to make major amendment just 2 months before the wedding). WOW. After some chat on the cost, I left the boutique rather impressed.
My overall experience with her has been very positive from the beginning til end. My dress was ready by December except for the hem where she explained that an accurate continuous stretch of lace is required so that the train would look seamless. She allowed me to have my dress kept at her boutique until a week before the big day to 'preserve' so as to speak.
Custom made wedding dress by Paulynn cost at least RM800, depending on the materials selected and workmanship required. Some of the cheaper options were simple chiffon while some which would cost more were full lace (expect from RM2.2k onwards). Any fancy add-ons such as beads, hand- stitches crotchets, transformative gown / 2 piece dress cost nothing below RM3k.
Mar 2013
I am proud to say that i am one of the satisfied clients of White & Lacy BS. Got married 2 years ago and had my gown made by Paulynn. This woman is an incredible designer. Actually, i didn't know about White & Lacy but my friend recommended me to Paulynn because it was her that have her gown made. Since she was my bestfriend i trusted her taste and i'm so glad with the results. For my wedding gown, Paulynn made me a replica of pronovia gown as per my instructions because pronovia is my favorite since i was very young.
Feb 2011
after checking various boutiques' portfolios, I have decided to make White & Lacy my preferred boutique for my made to measure wedding dress. The handwork is exquisite and they specialize in lace dresses, and I want a lacy wedding dress, with sleeves since it's a church wedding. Then we left for W&L. The area is very unassuming and a bit run down, but at closer look you can see the signboard for the boutique. Going up the stairs I had to smile because the walls were painted lavender (my favourite colour). We went in and met Paulynn and she is amazing with 20+ years of experience under her belt. She sat down to business, took a good look at my body type and started drawing designs. Since she is mostly custom making dresses, she didnt really have a selection of dresses to try on. The figure she quoted us was much higher than my budget (then again, on hindsight I really underestimated my custom made dress budget), but we went for it. My mom also picked out for me the off-white vintage, French lace (I love it too, but much more expensive T.T).
Bottom line, I don't regret going zeroing in on White & Lacy.
Jan 2011
I ended up at Paulynn Chan's White and Lacy boutique. Just the day before, I commissioned her to make dresses for my mum and my three bridesmaids. She made my wedding planner's wedding dress as well as another friend's wedding dress. Unfortunately, there wasn't anything for me to try on in her boutique but I had a conversation with her about how I wanted the cheongsam to look like and she quickly drew the design on the spot. The corresponding price that was quoted was more than reasonable. Most importantly, I felt Paulynn had an expert opinion and wasn't afraid to share it. I knew she wasn't going to dress me in something that looked hideous on me. We discussed colours and materials and the type of lace for the cheongsam. Once I left, I felt at reassured that I've made the right choice and that my cheongsam is going to look nice!
