Malay weddings in Singapore are extravagant affairs and arguably one of the grandest celebrations in the Malay culture. Some ceremonies can even last for several days with the highlight of the wedding being the Bersanding (or Enthronement), where the bride and groom are treated as royalty and seated upon “thrones” placed on the pelamin (dias). The bridal couple will be in their wedding finery with the bride dressed in the elaborate traditional baju kurung or the more modern baju kebaya. Take a look at the latest Malay Bridal Fashion in Singapore and be captivated by their beautiful, intricate and elaborate embroidery and handiwork.
With more than 10 years of experience in the bridal industry, Signature Bridal makes every bride’s dream come true with their exquisite styles, and a whole collection of bridal dresses ranging from traditional to a mix of traditional and modern.

The deep violet and golden daffodil-coloured baju kebayas are two dresses that take on a more modern style of the traditional bridal dressing. The classic floral pattern embroidery of the kebayas are complemented by the rich and bold colours while the sheer high neckline and a V-neckline with insert give the respective dresses a contemporary twist.
Classy, timeless and exquisite – these dresses are stunning pieces that would suit anyone, from the more conservative brides to the young contemporary brides, with their modest designs contrasted by figure complimenting silhouettes, vibrant colours and astonishing embroidered details.
