10 Questions to Think About Before Saying “I Do” to Your Wedding Dress.

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress1) Have you weighed your dream gown with your wedding expenditure?
We all know that the wedding day is every girl’s dream to shine and look her most glamorous.  It is always wise to set your budget and decide if you would prefer a custom made gown or an off-the-shelf gown. Creating bespoke gowns is always a dream come true for every bride. However, selecting from a wide range of versatile available designs is also advantageous in saving time and cost. As alteration is inclusive, brides can be assured with getting the best fit too.

2) Are there any new wedding dress designs?
Keep yourself up-to-date with what’s buzzing around the bridal neighborhood.  Flip through pages of magazines, find images on bridal websites or even Facebook albums or instagram accounts!  Browsing through blogs will also give you greater knowledge to see what suits you best!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress23) Perhaps try something else?
So we know we’ve just told you to ‘keep your eye on your favourite dress’. However, as the saying goes, never put all your eggs in the same basket. Try playing around with various types and lengths of dresses. Who knows? That dress on the hanger may look 10 times more gorgeous on your body! Always keep an open mind to try new styles and always be open to the stylist’s advice.

4) What’s your silhouette?
A great helping tool in choosing your perfect dress, is understanding the right cut for your body shape.  Whether you’re petite, curvy or an hourglass, there’s always a silhouette to fit your body shape! If you’re unsure, try checking it up on the net or asking the boutique’s stylist for help!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress35) Are you focusing on your flaws instead of the fit?
This is a huge no, no! Every bride has their concerns and would usually stick to one type of dress. However, it’s your special day, be confident and listen to what the gown designers or the image stylist has in store for you before making your own conclusion. For all you know, you may surprise yourself!

6) Should you listen to your entourage’s opinions?
Everyone has their opinion and sometimes the more the merrier may mean the more the messier.  As each friend gives an advice, it leaves you confused and you may even end up with a gown which was not your choice. Trust your instincts because only you know what you want!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress47) Have you kept a location in mind?
Planning a dress code with a location or shoot in mind will help smoothen things out for you in the later part. For example, if you were to choose an apple green or breezy blue dress for an outdoor garden shoot, you may appear camouflaged in the background.

8) Forgotten about the icing on the cake?
Just like cakes are beautifully decorated with the icing, your dress too needs the right accessories to make your look go from “nice” to “wow!” It is important to bring out the whole look and feel as the right image styling helps enhance your wedding gown and bring out your charisma. Listen to the tips your stylist provides and be ready to look va-va-voom!

The-Louvre-Bridal-_-Dress69) Is your dress good to go?
Always plan time to have more than one fitting session! As the first fitting is for you the select your gown and get the right measurements, the second fitting will ensure that the desired wedding dress has been altered to fit your physique.

10) Who is the most beautiful bride?
You are!  Although you look absolutely stunning from a third person’s perspective, you too need to have a sense of self confidence and be happily comfortable in your own skin. After all, happiest girls are the prettiest!

It’s about confidence, charisma and character.” Styling from vintage lace to chantilly tulles, each dress is distinctive. Every bride has something to fit them, determined by personality traits along with body shape, skin tone and hair color.

This year’s trend places the focus on alluring back designs. From deep dips to embellished illusions and sexy slits, these backs will make sure the bride look just as good receding from the aisle as they are walking down it.

The Louvre Bridal

Rejoicing with Qiaowei & Liyan // Korea Travel Journal Theme Wedding

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_pre-wedding-photography-korea-seoul

“A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.” – By Max Muller

At The Louvre Bridal, every couple could check-in at their destination wedding. And Qiaowei & Liyan first stepped into The Louvre Bridal with a dream of going to Korea for their overseas pre-wedding photoshoot.

Just like every newly engaged couple,  they are spoilt with many choices and ideas for their wedding. During their first visit to our boutique back in 2012, the couple sat down with our experienced wedding advisor, Fion to share their initial ideas. Through the brainstorming session, the couple shared on how they wished to capture the of Korea landscapes and scenery.

Working on the ideas they had in mind, our team have developed it into an unique travel journal theme. “Let’s head to Korea for a 2-days photoshoot to capture the various popular Korea cultural places and cityscapes! Your wedding album will be personalized into a travel journal with special stamps designs.” says Fion. And with the couples’ trust in The Louvre Bridal to fulfill their dream for them, we are on our way to embark an overseas photoshoot adventure!

As compared to planning for a local pre-wedding photoshoot, an overseas pre-wedding photoshoot has so much more details to plan and take care. Thus, many research have been done to find out on best season to travel, the various photoshoot venues, and we also value added with some transportation and leisure research to help the couple! We believe that having a well-planned overseas photoshoot trip not only allows for a smooth photoshoot, it also allows couple and the team to enjoy the trip fully!

It was the early Spring period in Korea, and full of excitement, our team set off to Korea together!
Day 1 of the photoshoot, we set off for the photoshoot in the chilly morning! It’s as cold as 10 degrees in Seoul, Korea! And our brave bride made a great sacrific for her picture-perfect shots with our “Fleur Designer collection” with leaves peplum and a sexy bare back! We have one sweet groom with us here, taking care of his bride-to-be with hot drinks and coats, not letting her catch a cold. What a sweet sight!

As it is springtime, the budding cherry blossoms greeted us with a lovely sight to complement the photoshoot.

On Day 2, it was more light-hearted and casual dating snap at Everland and the heart of Seoul, Myeongdong streets.  Therefore we have picked a fun and fluffy cocktail gown to match the colorful theme park! Look at all the fun and candid moments captured. Trust us when we say that the mood when taking your pre-wedding photos is very different as compared to back in Singapore, because of the holiday moods. And that’s why all of us had so much fun throughout the photoshoot journey.

Everyone was drenched out of energy after the two consecutive days of shoot, but after the end of the photoshoot, it was time to say “Yummy Korean food and the shopping craze, here we come!!”

If you’re curious to take a peek on how our team works behind-the-scenes, we have some photos of the trip to share! In case you are wondering why Qiaowei & Liyan are surrounded by students and the passer-by just like they are K-pop celebrities, it is because it is not a common sight to see people taking outdoor wedding photos in Korea. No wonder the Koreans are so excited!

The Korea trip was so much fun and we are glad to bring back such great fun memories, and the close bond created with our lovely couple.

Having such a successful trip and having their Korea dream fulfilled, Qiaowei and Liyan continued to entrust their actual day bridal and wedding photography to The Louvre Bridal for a one-stop hassle free planning, knowing our background of 10 years experiences in wedding planning!

We are glad to be able to doll up Liyan into a gorgeous bride and capturing the happy and touching moments of their big day.

Creative Singapore Pre-wedding Photoshoot Ideas

The pre-wedding photoshoot is a great opportunity for brides and grooms-to-be to enjoy some fun planning and exercising some creativity. It is one of the first few fun adventures that you both embark on as an engaged couple. It is never easy to plan for a unique pre-wedding photoshoot, and it sure takes you some effort and to crack your heads for a special photoshoot theme to call your own.

Here at The Louvre Bridal, we strongly believe that each couple has their own unique love story, their unique personalities and ideas. Therefore, no couples would have the awkward situations of having repetitive or template photoshoots just like any others. This is your once-in-a-lifetime afterall. 😉

Feeling lost or scratching your heads for your upcoming pre-wedding photoshoot? Get inspired by some interesting concepts and unique ideas from our couples!

 

1. Eternal Knot
For fun & bubbly couple, Chong Meng & Yee Rae, they came to us with the idea of wanting a fun and wacky photoshoot as they “tie the knot”. Our team suggested them for a journey through the dating times and their common hobbies together. As we understood both of them and their love journey through the chats,  the discussions turned out to be a great photoshoot theme! It was never about posing in-front of the camera. It was something that the couple’s friends and families could share the joy with. For the photoshoot locations, we planned the fun adventure amid the natural landscapes and the contrasting urban cityscape.  To personalize it to the couple, we planned the photoshoot back to the place where they first met.

Tips: To achieve fun and wacky expressions, practice with your partner before the photoshoot and work out those muscles on your face for the perfect smiles, so you’d feel more confident with the camera on the day. The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Fun-Loving-theme2 The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Fun-Loving-theme

It sure brought back lots of memories for the dating times. As the sunset painted the sky with purple streaks, the couple was styled with a bold black gown and a charming white suit. Being back to places that hold special meanings, and doing something you both like (in this example, eating the local delights along Esplanade) makes the photoshoot extra heartwarming and memorable.

2. Maple Love Story
All gamers gather! Don’t you think Wei Rong & Jing Xian’s theme of Maple Love Story is one-of-its-kind? When the couple first came to The Louvre Bridal, they were pretty clueless about planning for their own wedding photoshoot. Through more chatting, we found out that the two had met each other through an online game, Maple Story. That was where we evolved the idea into their very own photoshoot theme!

The chapters of their pre-wedding photoshoot began with going to the movies, which was their dating hobby. Stepping into the theatre with popcorn and drinks, the movie unfolded into the Maple Story chapter.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Cinema-Theme-01 The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Cinema-Theme-02It wasn’t easy to remake the Maple Story world come alive, taking note the little details of styling the couple into their game characters and all the props preparation. We styled the couple up in a sweet pink cocktail gown, to mimic her game character and some DIY weapon props, not forgetting the monsters characters.

It sure took a lot of effort in planning the photoshoot schedule, as our team researched and proposed the suitable locations as the perfect backdrops for the Maple story world. Couples could leave the itinerary planning up to our team of dedicated coordinators to plan out. Check out the photos; don’t you agree that the pictures came alive with the  magical touch of the digital effects.

We styled the bride with a chiffon turquoise gown to bring out her candid personality, and it flowed perfectly to the evening sea breeze.

Tips: Finding the common interests and hobbies create the most memorable pre-wedding photoshoot theme that is solely yours to cherish.

3. Retro Fashion
The retro fever is running high on Kae & Heyzel. The couple came with the idea of sealing the remaining retro places before they disappear with the city’s fast developments. The modern duo added a zesty twist to their retrolicious photoshoot theme. We’ve planned out the old school places in Singapore, and a modern style for the bride and groom in contrast. Finding the last remaining places of Singapore with the retro and old school memories wasn’t easy. We cracked our heads and finally put together the best contrasting venues, each with a distinctive charm.

The shophouses with rich colours were definitely shortlisted at one of the photoshoot venue. We even had a trishaw rented to evoke the retro ambience from the 60’s! The bride, styled with an eye catching yellow and black laced ballgown,  matched with the groom in a modern checkered black suit stood out from the brightly colored backdrops.  The makeup was kept clean with bold red lips and hair bun up in a low pony tail.

No, we didn’t travel to Pulau Ubin for the kampong scenes. We found the last kampong in Singapore, and it’s called Kampong Buangkok. For such a unique photoshoot location, Heyzel put on an ombre gown with pastel streaks that flow into a soft tulle train. Kae had a contemporary blue suit styled with a black cross tie to match. Our team also prepared some handmade props like the tin can telephone and chalkboards.
