1) Photoshoot
I visited Keep Gallery & Very Taipei mainly cos 2 of my friend had it done on each one of the shop. But as i mainly looking for button back wedding dress which i am very keen on. Therefore, any bridal shop having such dress is my top pick, which unfortunately not many. I tried on one button back dress in WeddingAisle, which is the first shop i went before visiting KeepGallery/Very Taipei, i like it a lot, or so i thought, and after that went to Keep Gallery SS2 later of the day, which coincidently they have ONE button back dress, i tried it and love it, so did my fiance. The WeddingAisle one paled in comparison. Actually we wanted to visit Very Taipei after that, on that same day, but the Keep Gallery sales personnel keep on pushing me to sign with them, their package includes all the necessary <only exclude nude bra & body foundation> is only RM3999. Not the cheapest, but i think it is reasonable price, and plus they have the dress i wanted… End of talking till closing time – 8pm and as i am not comfortable to sign package on the same day of visiting the shop, and with the first bridal shop i visited, so we left the shop without signing, i think the sales person is very tired and frustrated on us not signing on the day itself, and i can sense myself having physical headache from being “pressured” like that as well. So we told them, we will look around next day which is a Sunday, if we can’t find anything better, we will sign with them. Long story short, i went to a few other bridal shop, NONE of the shop have button back, they may have some fake button back, ie the button are decorative, and not those which and button/unbutton kind, NONE! So, i ended up signing with Keep Gallery and booking this particular button back dress, the ONLY ONE which they are having. I had a peek at the label, it is designed by Alice Ngoo, a local Malaysia designer, do look her up as i find her dresses, those shown her FB/Insta are quite nice.

Overall, i am satisfy with Keep Gallery, there is no extra charges, no topping up to get so called premium/new dress. I think it all depends. My friend bought the package 1 or 2 years back with them, and she say don’t have many dress selection in Keep Gallery, which i am not quite sure what she means cos i not really went to other bridal shop… Anyway, she suspect it is due to her height, which she say is short, but she is not that short, should be above 160cm, so i think it is how you negotiate with the sales person, best is maybe look and pick the actual day dress <which is most often what you need to pay extra for> even before you sign the package. For me, it is quite easy, i want a button back dress, i will most probably sign with the particular bridal shop if they have it for me. It is good this way as well, as bridal shop normally will only let u pick the actual day dress 2 months before, could due bride’s weight fluctuate quite a bit and it is better that you don’t choose too earlier. For me, i choose it before i sign the package, which is 6 months before actual day, so one less thing to do nearing the wedding date. Yeah

For those who haven’t sign any wedding package, you may try checking out Alice Ngoo, as they do rent out gown, their shop is at 85-1 Jalan Metro Perdana 1, Taman Usahawan Kepong 52100 KL. I find my dress from Keep Gallery which is labelled Alice Ngoo, so you might find something you like from her shop…

2) Invitation card DIY design

I used gogoprint, 100 pcs 5×7 inches card only RM85. The trouble is getting the colored envelope which i want, gogoprint don’t provide envelope. So who knows envelope can be tat expensive, and hard to find. We got our envelope coincidently in one stationery shop in Ipoh: magnum stationery book store.

We design our 5 x 7 inch postcard style wedding invitation using this site: JukeBoxPrint Free Flyer/Postcard creator.

Gogoprint has since raised their price, the original RM85 has increased to RM94 – for 100pc 5×7 310g art card material, but i still go back to it, as i can’t find any other reputable printing site with better price.

3) Wedding backdrop DIY design

We design our 8 x 8 feet banner using online site: Gravit Designer. Once you get the hang of it, this site is very easy to use. In designing our backdrop, we also use http://www.online-image-editor.com/ to make the floral clipart <which we use as backdrop’s border decoration> to have transparent background. We get the free floral clipart through Google image search.
