Hi gals,

Would like to share the experience on our pre-wedding photo at Ivory Romance Bridal House, hope this will help for those who are looking for reliable bridal house.

Me and hubby have signed up with Ivory romance for pre-wedding photo in year 2008 during bridal fair in Mid Valley.
There are so many nice and competitive bridal house, and after a few survey, we have decided to sign with Ivory Romance.
The validity of the package was 3 years. Therefore, we have just had our photo shooting in January 2010. To avoid any dispute, please understand the package before paying any deposit and get everything to be written on paper black & white. Understand in detail what does the package include and what is the measurement you are taking. Take for example, 21 posts meaning your album consists of 21 photos but not necessary in 21 pages.

During trial of gowns, there are new designer dress and 90% new dress condition. Of course, the brand new designer dresses will be the most ideal choice as always.
I have my budget, and planned not to take up the brand new designer dress due there are plenty choice of 90% new dresses.
However, I have changed my mind and of course with hubby's agreement, I have taken up 1 designer dress for my outdoor shooting (which still within budget) after a few trial :)
The sales coordinators are helpful during the trial and give constructive feedback.

Days before shooting day, they will make gentle reminder on photo shooting preparation and stuff required to bring / you can purchase at their studio as well. For convenience, we have purchased from studio.

On photo shooting day, will have professional make up artist to do make up for us and will ask if we like the make up she put. There were many accessories in their studio which can easily match with the dresses and make up. We can request to change if we do not like the design or matching.

There are professional photographer and assistant will guide us how to post, smile and look good in the photos. The quantity of the photos are not many for the same design as they focused on 'quality' shot but not quantity.

During the photo selection day, the sales person will suggest on different type of upgrade package to us which is more value added.
Anyway, bear in mind, as a customer, we have the right not to buy the suggestion from the sales person as long as we find it uncomfortable.

After photo selection when we discussed with friends, surprisingly, 2 couples of my friends who have also signed with Ivory Romance and satisfy with their profession and result too.

susanne: Thanks for the greeting. The post is just for reference. Have you taken your wedding photos yet?

Lovelyjean: I really feel sorry for the super bad experiences (the link that you paste) that they had.

But this is what I have gone thru with Ivory Romance. This post is just for sharing to those who would like to get some reference. I believe all bridal shops have their ways of doing business, its just the communication and understanding of your package. My friend told me that she went to bridal fair for survey and bridal shop told her must pay RM3k as deposit as what she requested in the package. rclxub.gif

I would say, different requirement. If you are the person who prefer to have all designers dresses and special accessories that different with others (not wanting all dresses similar with your friends who signed with the same bridal shop). Then you should communicate wisely "before" you sign. Or, you would prefer to have a big nice album with more photos, please communicate and agree with the price before you top-up. E.g. budget how many photos that you would like to add on-top of your package. Sometimes we will confuse on the package that they suggest, however, we will clarify until we fully understand.

Sorry to say this but I personally believe a good bridal house is one that gets good review from basic packages customers (below RM3k), not from those who pay above 5k..

Yes, I kinda agree with mermyz after my experience with their sister company, Romantic Bridal House. Customers who pay abv RM5k tend to have it easy with the bridal house than those who chose to limit their budgets to below RM3k ++

Hi Cherylw,
I was took up the Cameron Highland package as well. The ori price is same as you said. But you may get SA to custom made based on your own budget.To me, 29 poses are not enough as it is included 2 design pages which may take up about 4 poses.So total 21 pages only for 29 poses.Cameron highland is a very nice place to take photo, so 29 poses absolutely insufficient. Try to talk to SA about your expectation, everything still can fix before full payment is made.
