    Sneaky

    I went to Bugis+ yesterday with HTB just to have a look at the bridal packages that the booths there have to offer. Our main aim is to find a bridal shop which can provides gowns, MUA and AD photography in Sin (we have another wedding dinner at overseas). This is the 1st time we went to a bridal show. VC is the first shop that we sat down and spoke to and to my horror, HTB started negotiating on the prices and the package after talking to the saleslady Cindy for 1.5 hours (HTB is 30% into signing up).

    All these while, I already had in mind of the photographer (named him AT) whom I want him to take my pre-wedding pictures but I have yet to sign up with him. Still in the midst of negotiations as AT only provides photography shoots, no MUA, no gowns. In addition, AT photography will be at overseas which add on to my to-do-list of having to sort out my own MUA & gowns. HTB feels that the package VC offered is worth the money as VC did offered us some gowns & suits to bring overseas for AT photography shootings and our AD wedding in overseas on top of pre-wedding & AD photography in Sin incl MUA & gowns/suits (HTB is now 80% into signing up). I did a quick check on VC reviews on my phone while at their booth and saw lotsa ppl comment that their gowns selection is very limited. Being the straightforward (and fussy) me, I told the saleslady on the spot bout the feedback of other BTBs.

    However, I was impressed that she offered to bring us to their shop to have a look at their selection even though we have yet to sign up with them. So we just walked over as the shop is just nearby Bugis+. Selection wise I must say, not much for evening gowns, but I saw a few white gowns and their style which I kinda like. They also have a small cramped room to store all their gowns but I'm unable to see better because each gown was hanged with a cover. They even asked me to try on their gowns which I refused (in case we decided NOT to sign up later). However, Cindy convinced us that they have new gowns coming in now and then even though not much.

    They showed us their studio room and prop for indoor shoots which I think is quite ok (anyway, the end result will depends on the photographer skills). While chatting and looking around, Eric asked us to watch with him and the rest of the shop staffs a videography which they just finished editting for a couple which I think it's quite nice. (HTB is now 90% convinced to sign up incl their videography as well). I did asked Cindy whether I can select Eric as my photography and she said yes. When talking to Eric, he said he normally does overseas photography but if insist for his service, there will be extra charge. This is the point I was quite disappointed about as when I asked Cindy, she mentioned no extra charge

    While talking and chatting with them, I must say Eric is not that hard sell compared to Cindy who attended us. However, she did made the extra effort to service us and give us what we want which we are grateful for. I finally give up and followed HTB's decision to sign up with VC as HTB promised I can still take up AT package for overseas shot!

    I hope everything turns out as per discussed yesterday and not empty promises. I will post again when I go for gown selections and hope their service is still as good as yesterday.

    I just signed up with them and I'm quite happy and contented with their service so far. They have new gowns too which I really like because it's just simple and elegant. Their crew is also very flexible, accomodating and easy-going. They're approachable too but I suggest that you look for Eric and Elbson. They're really good at assisting us. For the ps, we chose not to go overseas and would be having our shoot just a few weeks from now. Anyway, who's the photographer that you chose guys? Still thinking about it.

    they have new designs for their gowns so i was able to choose my gown without any difficulty. the people are helpful and easy-going. you can choose what style of photography you want so you won't need to worry about not liking the outcome of the photos.

    I can really connect with the coordinators in volans. They ask for some ideas and suggestions from me and they just pitch in some of their ideas. The photography is also very good because the photographer will adjust to the style of photography you want.

    Just did my photoshoot with them. We signed up with them last year at a fair in Suntec. We actually did not do any research! During the fair, the first shop we sat down at was My Dream Wedding.. we were with them, hearing the sales person talk for 45 min... Kinda hard sell.. i don't like!! In the end, i signalled to my bf to leave... and we just suddenly said we need to look around, and left their booth.

    Next to MDW is Volans Couture.. we asked to see photo samples.. well, we were satisfied with what we saw.. thus we enquired about packages. The lady who tended to us did not kept talking to us or probe the usual questions when we were looking at the samples. I like this.

    Anyway while at the Volans booth, one question led to another, and my bf even went on to bargain about the package! Details like ampoules, eyelash, extra photo etc etc etc all came up. In the end, we just signed up cos already bargain and we really liked the lady and Eric (i think is the boss) attitude. Friendly, and never hard sell.

    Ok, so fast forward to last month we went to choose gowns etc. A girl called Showine serviced us. I really like her! She is not the talkative kind, very polite and friendly. She was the one suggesting the gowns i try, zip/unzip for me...

    Next came the actual photoshoot day. Wow very tiring..... luckily rained only in the morning and when it was time for outdoor shoot, rain stopped! Prior to my shoot, i was researching for AD makeup artist, cos my thinking is.. bridal shop not specialised. maybe their make up so-so.. I wanna look my best on my AD!! So even though my package includes AD makeup, I still looking around.

    However, during my photoshoot day, my hairstyles and makeup all very nice! Esp love my hair. The makeup lady really made my hair very nice! i feel i looked like a doll. Brides, do colour your hair prior to the photoshoot. I did and i feel the hairstyles made my hair colour pop (or vice versa?)

    I have yet to see the pictures.. so i cannot comment on the end product. I will update here when view them. I especially took time to review Volans as i feel they really service us from the heart. As i read so many reviews on bridal shops, and read so many horror stories on hard sell or bad service after signing, good bridal shops really need to be praised!

    The only thing I can pick on is maybe their evening gown selection not alot. To me not an issue though, as I am into those simple white gowns.

    P.S. I am not working for Volans definitely! I will update should my perception of them change though. for eg, if when choosing photos they keep pressure me to choose many many many photos that sort of nonsense. Anyone who is interested to know more about my package can PM me. Cheers!

    Hello ! would you mind sharing your package with me ? felicia-koo@hotmail.com

    Hi (:

    I have recently signed up with them at a bridal fair. However, I feel a bit worried because there were many reviews saying that the gowns are quite limited. Have you gone for the local or taiwan wedding shoot? Just like to find out more about their gowns selection and service.

    Thank you!

    Can I check whether their evening gown selection is limited? Glad to hear good reviews because there are really very few reviews on Volans.

    Thanks!
