In KK, may be u can check it out one quite reputable one called EverBest.

I was there last year, just browsing, and it has nice collection of gown.

A friends used EverBest for a wedding few years ago, and it was superb!

I therefore got to know the owner, and I think they are professional and quite proper when it comes to good customer service...

Evie,

You going Sabah for holiday or you are from Sabah?

I have the similar thoughts as you do... I wanna have OD at KK, Sabah... but my friend there told me, if i were to engage with a BS just for OD... I've to take the minimum package which is Rm3k - 4k... if i just take OD there for 3-4k, i think it's better to get a freelance PG & MUA there for 1 makeup session on your own gown...

just my own opinion :)

Hi,

My future sis-in-law took her wedding package there last year.

this is what she encounter:

She n her hubby took the rm2000 package as they only want 1 album. During the gown selection day, the SA told them that they can pick any gown (4 gowns). So they just pick any gown that they were interested in.

Then the PS came, and everything was smooth.

It was during the gown selection day that problem started to arise. During photo selection, their SA told them that one of the gown that they chose were not in their package and they hav to pay another RM300 for it if they want their pics. They were furious as the SA should hav let them know earlier if the gown that they chose were not in the package.After a heated arguement, they decided not add those rm300 and they ended up with only 3gowns in the album.

The make up that EverBest did for her on their wedding day was a disaster too.everyone commented how bad her make up was. even the hairstyle is not so good. She has a curly hair, so the hairstylist made her a half-updo,meaning the hair is partly down. but the hairstylist didn't even bother to make her curls look nicer.she should hav set her hair to make the curls neater. the hairstyle didn't last for even 3 hours n she looked so messy by the time the church wedding was over.

Another friend of mine who took her pictures there had the same experience too. after the photo session, then they were told that 1 of the gown hav to pay another rm300.this is so absurb, how could they do this to their costumer?when my friend returned her gown, the SA said there's a loose thread on the gown and demanded her to pay rm50 for it. according to my friend, she didn't even notice the loose thread,mayb the gown was already spoilt before she got the gown.

if anyone decided to hav PS at EverBest, then you better watch out for these tricks. i hav to admit that the PG skills are quite good,but the album quality not good. after few people browsing through my fiancee's sis album, the gum like peeled off a bit, and you can see bloating pages of the album.but then again, depends on your luck too. mayb she was just unfortunate customer.

Dear rosayee,

i surveyed 3 bridal studios in kk,life studio, paris and eternity.but hav to say after you saw the gowns at life studio,you won't want to go other bridal shops oredi. thats how i felt la. even my future hubby said the same thing. initially we planned to hav our photo shots there, but after we went to bridal fair in centre point, future hubby prefers the PG styles from KL.So took our PS in KL. Hav to admit that even though the PG styles from KL is great,but my mind stil cannot get over the gowns in Tanjung Aru.So we cancelled our gowns in KL and rent my wedding gown at LifeStudio.

The package that was offered to me before was RM2588, consist of 2 outdoor (2 gowns) and 6 indoor gowns (8 gowns in all). Wedding day 1 wedding gown, 2 evening gown. just that they dun provide bridesmaid dresses la.

so i think if you just want the outdoor PS, it shouldn't b that expensive.

But still, you better check out the gowns first la, different people,different taste.

But if any of you still prefer EverBest, its up to you. Just want to share what i kno,so hope that i dun hurt anyone's feeling ya..

Dear rosayee,

What i told you earlier was the price they quote me last time. but as i said, we took our photo session in KL so i didn't hav my photo session at life studio.i only rent their wedding gown for my wedding next week. they called me earlier to inform that they hav new arrival gowns and ask me to go hav a look. so kind of very excited now,coz my 1st body fitting is this sat.Mayb i will change my gown if the new arrivals are nicer(though the one i picked was fabulous too).the shop is in Tanjung Aru Plaza. the plaza is not far from Terminal 2 airport. u won't get lost,its easy to find.

The package that they offer me got 2 albums,but duno if the price stil the same coz it was October when they gav me the price.

The lady boss is very friendly,easy to negotiate.

well, im a sabahan and will be having my brideside banquet there soon. about sabah's wedding prep, i think only one or 2 threads found in the forum, not much infos but some comments about MUA..etc . but its already been a great help for me who only have very short stays while went back there to sort things out..i managed to have trial/confirmed the MUA, visit to few restaurants/hotels & finally get the venue confirmed & paid the deposit just right before we came back to KL.
