    they have good packages and the price is really worth it because there are a lot of freebies available.

    I also just signed a package with them early this month.
    They just opened a shop call Chantal wedding in Tiong Bahru.
    Have visited their SG shop. Gowns are limited and according to them, they will import more new ones coming.
    So i'm waiting to see if they have more new arrivals before i visit them again

    MY PS will be in end April.

    Hello all France Paris BTBs! I just came back from my photoshoot in March 2015 and would like to share my experience. I was initially very apprehensive as I signed up and paid in full (I know, I did not do any research and it was the first shop that approached us right after we got engaged us). I'd like to spare future brides of any feelings of dread or worries like what I went through.

    Firstly, I hope that all brides would consider their photoshoot a separate expense from the wedding, because it TRULY is an investment for future keepsake. Once you've set your own expectations right, it wouldn't bother you that much that your package is $x00 more expensive than another BTB, because for all you know, you will be getting a better photographer/MUA for that $x00 more that you are paying.

    PRICE
    Despite that, I must say I was very upset to find out that our package was pretty overpriced (but I still think it was a worthwhile investment!). From what I heard from other BTBs, what I paid could have bought an entire bridal package (pre-wedding + actual gowns + photography). I've not even factored in flights and accommodation! We just took this as an opportunity for a pre-honeymoon. By the way, this is coming from someone who went through 2 photoshoots! I had my first photoshoot in Sanya, Hainan in January 2015 this year. So please, don't beat yourself up for something which you will earn back eventually okay!

    OTHER COSTS
    It is true that they have many hidden costs - such as MUA onsite (~S$250), transport (10h but we only used him twice?! TWD4100), and entrance fees (~TWD3000/couple) to certain photography studios. I also got an unhappy shock from the VISA charges (3-5%) arising from our credit card fees. I don't think any credit card offers enough rebate for that, so I'll highly encourage all BTBs to pay in cash instead. And also to pay just a deposit instead =P

    PHOTOGRAPHER/ PHOTOGRAPHY ASSISTANT/ MUA
    We encountered freak weather (it is supposed to be a drought these few months but it rained non-stop in the entire week we were there) but our photos really turned out amazing! Our photographer was a pretty funny/eccentric gentleman called Ah Lu/ Lu Sir. Lu Sir had a scuffle with his new assistant though, a young chap called Kelvin who was still learning the ropes. And my MUA was Yayi. All of us were speechless when she was done!

    COORDINATOR
    I guess we were blessed with a really nice coordinator called Sammy/ Yixun who arranged the best photographer/MUA even though we did not request for anyone in specific. It took me a while to translate everything to Traditional Chinese during our correspondence though, as I wanted to be as polite to them as they were (or would) to me. I must also give due credit to the lady (Candy) who picked out my white gown - it was stunning! A pity they don't sell it anymore.. I would have bought it for my actual day.


    PRE-WEDDING SHOOT or ALL-IN BRIDAL PACKAGE?
    I've actually given some thought if getting an entire package will be worthwhile, and my answer is - Yes. Unfortunately, I did not get it as France Paris didn't have a local office in Singapore when I bought my package in July/August 2015. I didn't even know the different then LOL. Why I say so is because the prices will definitely be more attractive. Your pre-wedding shots are actually what gives you more bargaining power. Most shops will quote it cheap because they expect couples to top up the photos, which can bring in significant income. Because I overlooked this, I had to top up another S$2.5k for an actual day wedding package.

    I might be doing further updates on my livejournal, but till then!

    All prices stated above are valid as of March 2015.

    They do have a local office in Singapore. I bought my Actual Day package from them in Sep 2015 and the name card that was given to me stated a local office address. The local office is now relocated to somewhere in Ubi I think. Yet to go down for my gown fitting as wedding is next year.
