    Big or Small Bridal Boutiques?

    Hi dearies, I was looking at bridal boutiques and wondering whether there is any difference in engaging boutiques which are larger in establishment or smaller ones?

    My thoughts are that larger boutiques may have too many customers that they neglect my wedding, while if i go with smaller boutiques, I'm afraid that quality may be compromised. Is there any difference in going to bridal boutiques of different sizes?

    it really depends on the boutique that you go to. some big ones can be pretty good as well, as they have alot more experience. For big or small boutiques, basically when you meet their reps, must see if you can connect well with them and whether they are attentive to your needs.

    For smaller boutiques, why don't you ask to take a look at their portfolio and decide from there? If you like what they have done for other couples, then you can seriously consider signing a package with them. What I think is that perhaps smaller boutiques will be more careful with their customers because they will not want to risk losing their customer base.

    There are also small bridal shops that offer great service. you just have to spend a lot of time looking for them and reading reviews about them. remember that price does not equal to quality.

    Honestly I've been through that part, contemplating between the many options out there.
    For me and my hubby, we couldn't stand the pushy sales of some bridal. Therefore, it makes us feel a barrier in between. There are recommendations given by friends, going to fairs and all, but in the end I'm glad I made the right choice to follow our heart and selected our bridal based on the flexibility and more like friends helping us for the wedding.

    I have completed my photoshoot and now preparing for the album. so far so happy!
    So it really depends on what you ultimately want for yourself.

    i think it's not all about the size of the boutique but the kind of service and the quality of the gowns that they make. there are some small boutiques that offer a good service as well as quality gowns.

    it does not really depend on the size of the bridal shop or its popularity, it all depends on the service and quality of the products.

    for me it doesn't matter as long as they have good service.

    people choose to sing up for bigger boutiques because they have already established a good reputation.

    I prefer small boutiques that still offer great service that can compare to big boutiques... doesn't cost a lot of money but you still have great service.

    I feel as long as we like the gowns, photos and of course price, big or small in size doesn't matter. Big ones might not as attentive to our requests sometimes.

    I think that big or small boutiques don't really make a difference. Big boutiques do not necessarily mean neglected service and small ones do not necessarily mean compromised quality. What's more important is taking time to pick the dress you like as well as the planner/assistant that you feel more comfortable with

    if a small bridal studio can offer you the same good service as big bridal studios, then why not choose them instead? you can save more money..
