Finding the right bridal studio is tough but not impossible. This is due to the ever rising number of bridal houses everywhere especially in hotspots such as Petaling Jaya’s SS2, Kuala Lumpur’s Jalan Loke Yew and Jalan Ipoh. The Bridal Studio will be a huge contributing factor to your whole wedding event. So how does one assure that the big day wouldn’t be ruined by some unprofessional bridal studio?
Decide your budget or have a rough idea of what you are willing to pay or can afford before you go into any bridal houses. If you are not prepared, you may end up paying much more than you bargained for. Do some research to avoid spending unnecessary money.
If you have the time, try not to sign a package at the first studio you enter. Go to bridal streets where many Bridal Studios are lined up there. You can enter one shop after another to select the best one. But of course, you must be serious in looking and wanting the best, not merely wasting the poor sales assistant’s time. This studio might offer better promotions than the one before, or even the one after, therefore ask around before you decide. Choose wisely!
Ask to take a look at the wedding or evening gowns when you are surveying around. Some bridal shops are kind enough to let you try some on without any charges to see how it fits you. Look at their designs and sizes to see whether they are to your liking and can be altered. Also see whether there are additional charges for brand new gowns.
The most important person dealing with you is the sales assistant from the bridal studio. Therefore, observing the sales assistant is also a must do. Some sales assistant are so friendly and courteous till it intimidates the customers. Certain people places profit as their first priority hence neglecting what is best for you and your groom.
A great sales assistant will place your needs and wants ahead of anything else and treat you with honesty. She has to have some knowledge of what suits you and your body shape instead of just saying yes to everything you tried on.
The most important point here is that you must be able to communicate with the sales assistant. Observe the salesperson before you decide.
Ask for the photos of previous wedding albums to see their photography skills. See whether you would be able to choose photographers and make-up artist based on their work. If you have decided to choose that bridal studio, seek to meet its photographer beforehand and ask if you are not happy with him or her, will you be able to change to another person. A photographer has to make the couple feel at ease and happy to capture the moment.
