have been researching about bridal shops (BS) in Malaysia and found numerous
constructive advices from fellow BTBs. Collectively, you will be able to
filter out the non-appealing ones and focus on the aspects you care
about the most. Hereby I give you the research outcome and two cents
worth of my review.
customer satisfaction in terms of service, quality of gowns
photography. Recently, brides have recommended photographer Covan. His
work has been described as awesome. PG Edwin Tan’s work has always been impressive. Comments
have it that you have to pay a hefty amount for their wedding packages
but they are worth every penny.
slightly looser budget, this is a good bargain. The wedding gowns are gorgeous
but the collection of evening gown is limited. They have gowns from designer
Carven Ong (http://www.carvenong.com.my/) , Keith Kee
(http://www.keithkee.com/) and their own in-house designers. The Armadale brides have been saying how they loved their gown collection and you can choose any gowns. In term of service, the sales assistants (SA) in this bridal house have shown very promising customer orientation. There are also no hidden charges. The owner of Armadale, Joanne has a good eye for gown selection and you don’t have to worry that you can’t find the wedding dress that fits you. You are in safe hands.
The differences are Armadale:
1. Includes ampoule and fake eye lashes (which the regular wedding packages don’t) – ~RM100
2. Gives you back all photo soft copies without extra charge – This usually costs ~RM1.5 – 2K
Depending on what you want, this may be a more reasonably priced option for you.
Armadale Weddings service is very good and professional. Jasmine Hue was our wedding consultant and she was very helpful when I was picking gowns for my pre-wedding photoshoot and for my AD. She allows time and space for me to make up my mind and was not pushy. They have some variety of bridal gowns to choose from. Agnes Yip was our make-up artist during our pre-wedding photoshoot, her make-up style was good in the sense that it suited for photography purpose, hair-do was done well. Edwin Tan was our chosen photographer who works for Armadale Weddings and we enjoyed working with him. He is a very patient photographer. He guided us on how to pose and was also very open to our ideas. He is also creative, funny and makes us feel relax and comfortable during the photo shoot.
adopts a very brilliant business model which impresses me personally.
By partnering with above-average/reputable photographers &
videographer while offering the rental of limited collection of
designer’s apparels at flat rate, i.e. no hidden cost for extra photo or
so-called V.I.P. dresses as all hi-res photos are returned and all
dresses as just as exclusive.
Not only clients get the best of both
worlds but the peace of mind on the quality and straight-forward
service, i.e. no extra headache on top of worrying about ‘what props to
use’, ‘what to wear’, ‘where to shoot’ etc.
Also, another very
commendable attitude that we really like about the team was their
outstanding dedication and hospitality in giving their best to their
clients. When our session actually exceeded 5 hours, we expected to get
slapped with an extra bill for overtime (which is typical of many other
‘award-winning / high profile’ photographers). Instead, Edwin Tan
offered to buy us lunch. Joanne, the owner of Armadale, has very good
eye for gown selection. In fact, she took the trouble to call me up just
to try out a new dress which she believed was a better choice for me
and indeed it was!
i took my package with Armadale Weddings during 2011 (RM3888). They provide great service and advise. You definitely don need to worry about add money becos they wont push you to add this add that, this is what i like about Armadale
jus received our album yesterday. it was fantastic end to end service (PS to final delivery)
all well done from 13 Dec 12 til 26 Feb 13… slightly more than 2 mths.
the owner Joanne actually called me up last week to notify me that new dresses are arrived and let me have a 2nd go of gown selection despite having selected my AD dresses a week before.
excellent service from Armadale =)
I’m one of Armadale bride, and so far i’m very happy with their services, even though I have settled the full payment for pre-wed photography months before I collect my album and etc. My photographer is Covan and I did engaged him for my AD photography as well. I’m really satisfied with the outcome of the photos, the album layout design and their services so far. Judy and Jasmine have been really helpful during the whole process and when choosing gown too. Their gowns are lovely too.
I found out abt Armadale Weddings. They r located at Damansara Heights, quite secluded area, but very cosy and private in a way. Not very commercialized kind like those BS at ss2. Since my actual day is ard d corner, they make arrangement efficiently n I managed to hv my pre-wedding shoot taken again within short period of time. Not only they do not categorized their gowns, they dont practise hidden charges too. I got all my photos back in high resolutions :wub: N they r all fantastic!!! My fiance n I were super pleased. Their staff r all very helpful n friendly even after we settled d balance payment. Although I’ve paid for d other BS for my actual day services, I rather let it forfeited n go for Armadale Weddings. Their professionalism were indeed very impressive.
During my actual wedding day, I’ve shown both pics n albums from d other BS n Armadale. All my guests love d one from Armadale. Which I felt truly worth it :cheers:
So for all d brides-to-be out there, pls pls pls do not waste your time on those extremely commercialized BS out there. Go directly to Armadale Weddings. I can assure all of u that u wouldn’t b regret!
