Any good recommendation for bridal house in Penang (Island/Mainland). I heard a lot of people choosing StarEast as there are lots of package to choose. Hope you can share with me your experience and comment. smile.gif

Hi, i am new here also..Anyway, i will share info which i know la...Stareast i do agree that the design of the gowns are old already not so fashionable anymore. Kuang yee better dun go as the service was lousy. At one time i went w my mom, imagine we walked in to the shop browsing the gown till we went out also nobody serve us and the gown worst than stareast. If you guys looking for simple and good wedding photograher then can try out shalom and paisano..both wedding photograher take very good quality pic...
Btw, i am looking for good actual day photograher, can anyone recommend??? coz some wedding photograher they are only good in taking wedding shot not actual day pic le..Need suggestion..Thanks

Agree with you, Kwang Yee has a lot of people there, went there last year during a weekend and it was filled with people and no one seemed interested to show us anything.

I like Shalom a lot, the gowns are a bit limited but the photography style is very nice.

Ideal Wedding (opposite Pesta) is quite nice too.

I agree with Ashandrea. Shalom & Ideal wedding is nice. The most important thing to me is photography and make up must be good and excellent. France Taipei is not bad too but the make up artist there really does a good job. I like Shalom photography a lot...very natural. However I strongly wouldn't recommend Aspial cos it's expensive and the make up artists aren't good. They applied for you one make up and it last for the whole photo session without changing. I'm very dissappointed with the service I obtained from aspial too. The package is very costly compare to other bridal house and the service given is not good. Eventhough they have more choices in terms of gowns but the makeup is really bad. Really regret going to that place. :( Not value for money.

Hi girls,

I went to Ideal brides like the style of the photographer but the selection of gowns are limited.
Also went to Star East like Kuang Yee they are also quite bz

I sign up with Kuang Yee. I agree that they are usually very bz that is why their service is so so only. However their pricing is reasonable and they allow you to customize your own package meaning they flexible with the number of pose in the album, the number of day for photo shoot and also the type of FOC items. I like their wide selection of gowns ( can also choose from their other branch in Nibong Tebal) and also their photographer is accomodating.

But most importantly I think you need to get a good sales assistant regardless to which ever bridal house you sign up with because if they are not responsible then many things can go wrong.

Just had my photo shoot. I haven't finish selecting my photos yet... but so far so good, keeping my fingers cross hopefully the album will be up to my expectation.

Best regards,
PauPei

I do agree with Pau Pei... the most important is the SA that you got no matter which BS...

I'm a Stareast bride... I deal with the SA in Prai branch and Sunway branch... but bcos of my file is signed up in Sunway Branch, so everything have to comes back to Sunway branch whereby my SA from Sunway is not responsible at all... it's very far different compare to the SA in Prai branch although it's the same BS...

Where is Shalom?


I'm really lousy with road names but Shalom (Chinese name is Lao3 Huang2) is near Kelawei Road area.
Do you know where UOB near Gurney area is? If you continue using that road to drive to Pulau Tikus, you will see it on your left.
It's a white pre-war house. Next to Shalom is a shop that sells furniture and off topic but it's near Jones Road where the roti canai/malay kuih is really nice tongue.gif

As far as I know, Shalom price is very reasonable. They charged extra 5 set (10 photos) for $400plus. However France Taipei charge 1 set for around $230. Aspial charge 5 extra sets (10 photos) for $1400. Can you believe the price difference on extra photos you required? Better make a survey on this and decide carefully before sign up.

Blissful just opened mid/end last year, so the gowns there are quite new.
Aspial has one of the largest range of gowns & also a lot of suits for guys.

As for pricing, I didn't check out Blissful. Some girls on the forum commented that Aspial can be expensive but I know last year 1 of the cheapest packages I saw was RM1888 for super basic (can't remember what it includes)

Only other thing I can remember about Aspial is that they have this black lace cheong sam that they use to promote their "antique/vintage" package which I love! My friend wore it for her pre-wedding photos and it looked so nice on her. Haha, feel like asking a tailor to copy the design for me as it's one of the gowns I really like there. laugh.gif

I dun recommend Aspial..bad service after u sign up and current makeup artist lousy. Somemore very expensive. You'll definately regret after sign up. I strongly recommend Shalom or Ideal wedding. Paisano also good.

I had view throught Shalom and Kwang Yee website. Seem like there are not much choices on gown from Shalom. Kwang Yee from the photo seem to be not bad. Any one is bride from either this two bridal house? Any comment on their gown selection or services? Is the gown selection differ by each package?

I was pressured by Aspial to sign up with them when I first visited the shop. The salesperson kept telling me the RM1k discount which they're offering for first 100 packages sign up will end soon and gave me a lots of additional freebies which i will not get it next time when i walk in. In the end I signed up and later when I opt for additional photos to be developed, they charged me at a very expensive for one set(1 page for RM280plus) and on the receipt they wrote the price is inclusive of the extra photos and all the freebies they initially offered me. I was so pissed off. So in the end this mean I didn't get any freebies from Aspial at all (since I was paying at a high price for extra photos)and I was tricked into signing up the package with them without the surveying other BS. :( My advise is do survey all BS before signing up and choose those with good makeup artist and photographer. Selection of gown is secondary as no matter how fabulous the gowns are if they do not have a good photographer or makeup artist you'll definately regret it.

From my colleagues/friend's feedback, France Taipei is offering extra one set/page (2 photos) at RM200 while the most reasonable ones are Shalom - 5 extra sets/pages (10 photos) for only RM400 plus.
So pls carefully think about it.

Hi, sure can share with all of you.
The package featuring France-Taipei 10th anniversary and new year of 2009. The promotion is Fax/Email=Free celebration.
They have 3 packages come with this promotion and it has to depend on your luck of your lucky draw of which packages is for you.
1st (FREE): FREE for pre-wedding photo shooting and you have to pay RM1600+ for AD gowns and coats rental.
2nd (Special Discount): RM2009 for the ordinary package (20 poses) come with 4-selected gown for pre-wedding photo shooting and plus AD (2 gowns). If you sign up on the spot with deposit, free 20 poses pre-making on your album. If you sign up on the spot with 30% deposit, I can't remember what they offer. If you sign up on the spot with 50% deposit, you are entitled with DVD photo making. Total all you will only have one album and one big frame photo.
3rd (Special Discount): RM3996 for the package (total all got 80 poses including 20 pre-making photo poses). It comes with 7-selected gown for pre-wedding photo shooting and plus AD (2 gowns).It comes with another 6 free gifts you can select from the list (AD day/dinner make-up,family photo shooting,extra coat rental). If you sign up on the spot with deposit, free one album. Forgot what is the size. If you sign up on the spot with 30% deposit, instant cash rebate RM1000. If you sign up on the spot with 50% deposit, you are entitled with DVD photo making and plus another album if not mistaken. Total all you will have 1 big, 1 medium and 1 small albums and one big frame photo.
My luck was the the special discount and my FW decided to take the 3rd package because is more worth of money. This package original price (80 poses) is nearly RM7000 and now only RM3000. We paid 50% deposit on the spot to sign up the package.
