My Dream Wedding Penang

My Dream Wedding is a bridal house brand based in Hong Kong. They have branches in KL, Penang and Singapore. This bridal shop is gaining popularity in recent years due to the gorgeous dresses they have in their store, particularly the ones with Swarovski crystal. The atmosphere of the shop gives out a high-endish vibe, with the packages offered one would immediately think that it is a great catch. Overall customers are fairly satisfied with the photography, makeup, styling and gowns. However here are a few things to take note. Having a huge number of customers who have signed up, the gorgeous gown you want may not be available as it might be booked already by another bride. Remember the things you have in your package, sometimes they forget to include them.

Overall, the service from My Dream Wedding, from the sales staff, makeup artist, photographer (Alan), assistant (Tiger), manager, tailor auntie, is satisfactory. Any special requirements have to be communicated in advance before signing the contract to be included in the package. Cost not included in the package are ampoule: RM35x5=RM175, eye lashes: RM38, sponge: RM12x2=RM24, body foundation: RM100.

I think they have accepted too many clients that they should because their dresses seems to always be very limited due to the reason 'someone else have booked it'. Just a look at their shops and you will feel like this bridal company confirm is well-to-do and with the price that they offer, you will feel like it's a good catch. They won my vote (in the beginning) because they took us to their shop and showed us all the fancy dresses and their 'quite-glamour' looking shop. Their swarovski gowns are nice. We actually have to fetch their crews around for the photoshoot. It wasn't difficult for us to choose only 40 photos because most of them were not of our preference. 

It is the most common thing that people shared with us and that would be on the extra expenses that you will find yourself having to pay, that ranges from a higher category of dress that you want or the more photos that you would want to have. Be very careful with all the extra charges because before you know it, it could mount up to the same cost with the package original price. However, we were told by Bennie on some of the things that is not given and will be charged if you choose to have it.
  • Extra soft-copy with touch up (RM100 per pose)
  • Request to change gown after confirmation (RM300 per piece)
  • Photo-shooting on Saturday, Sunday or Public Holiday (RM250) - waived for us yay!
  • Extra poses into album and soft-copy with touch up (RM160 per pose).
  • Early collection of photos in advance (RM500)
TOTAL DAMAGE: RM4,988 (GST included)

We went down on Saturday morning and met with the photographer on Sunday morning. It was at that time only he told us that RMAF Museum is closed for good and that they are in the process of relocating to Malacca. We were shocked to the core. IT SUCKS BIG TIME. Apparently they found out about this a month ago, yet we did not receive any phone calls to this news. That same night, Bennie texted me with a long explanation of what happened and apologized. They gave us a free upgrade of album size, arranged for us to have the Penang photo-shoot that same week and have their Chief Photographer, Marcus to do it for us. That and we got ourselves an assistant, Boy to help us with everything else.

First of all i wan to thank you for Candice. She really did well on my make up and hair do. She is humble and friendly as well. I really like her make up and hair do. She make me feel really beautiful. Second i wan to thank you for our photographer on duty. His name is Chris. He is funny and professional at the same time. By not wasting time, he teach us how to post correctly and snap our picture perfectly. The result is very natural and we both are very satisfy. And about the assistant-Yang. He is very helpful throughout the process. He did his very best to help us and photographer.

Thanks to Sammi for helping us to choose our dress & suit in KL. Thanks to Grace for such professional hair & makeup that is elegant yet still natural for each different look, very talented! Thanks to Forest and Tiger (Hor) who are so dedicated in helping us find the best spots and really helped us to be comfortable & natural eventhough we are so kaku!

1)For a cute and friendly girl who served me very nice, during my gown testing for actual day, her name is Agnes..
2) Make up artist Sharon, photographer Marcus and helper Tiger, enjoy the time with U guys during my shooting
However I am dissatisfied with some of their staff servicing.

Five stars rating to pretty makeup artist and professional photographer as I like my hairdo and photo shooting. Nice interior design for indoor shooting as well.
Two stars rating for service provided due to:
1) incomplete accessories provided such as missing ribbon to tie up wedding car and miss out envelopes when collect the 4R photos which need us to wait for 1.5 hours and given old style envelop as replacement.
2) 8R photo frame not assembled properly which cause it fallen when hang up for one day only. I used super glue to stick back.
3) limited photo templete design. We forced to select the wedding photos to fulfill the photo album template designer but not really meet our requirement.
4) not allow to view wedding gowns during fitting time as told that the store room is messy. Very limited wedding grown published in shop.
Hopefully My Dream Wedding will upgrade overall service.
