OttersBigDay: The best Bridal in Kuching?


I’m sure some of you are already saying “Enough already with the wedding stuff! We know you are getting married!”

But hey, don’t like what I write, go-lah elsewhere til its all over. My blog bah. I should have a say, or rather all the say with what goes in it.

So here’s the story about the Bridal, as promised. Bet some of you stumbled here because of the key words ‘Best Bridal in Kuching’. SEO doing its magic right there! – But thank you for dropping by nonetheless, do read on =)

This was the deal when my ‘significant otter’ and I were doing the initial planning of our big day. We wanted to find a bridal, a photographer, a wedding card maker, a decoration expert and so many more.

We were already dreading the cost because all of those little little things combined would spell not less than RM7K. Don’t believe me? Do the math below:

  • Bridal (to rent the wedding gown and tux, and do make-up) = RM3,000
  • Photography (Pre-wedding and actual day with touch up of images) = RM3,000
  • Cards for 300 guest = RM350
  • Door gift for 300 guest = RM400
  • Decoration = RM1000

Well, we got all those above at a fraction of the assumed price, and it wasn’t even a promotional price.

But that was beside the point. The thing that made us go for this particular bridal I shall not name was because it was simply convenient because they did everything needed from A-Z.

This means, when we needed to address any of our concerns, we could just refer to a single point, without worrying much about coordination with the rest. It was just so easy, and less stressful if compared to us going to different wedding service providers.

To top it all, the owners were indeed super nice and always gracious during the whole fitting, make-up and photography sessions, and they were not pushy or pressing to get their most expensive sales off. Instead, I was somewhat amazed they were more concerned about how everything would go, including ensuring that we were happy with the choices made.  Sometimes, they would ask us to go for cheaper choices saying that some of those more expensive ones are ‘just not worth it’.  Cool eyh?

When it comes to timing, they were always punctual, with ample time given for any eventualities. For the wedding day itself, they were willing to come extra early (at no extra cost) as per requested by my ‘otter half’, despite them reassuring us that everything could be done in a more shorter time.

For the actual day, they also threw in some extra rentals no cost, which will be worn by the best man.

So yeah, am I satisfied with the bridal? Well, so far, they have been simply perfect. =)

  1. The trend of “One Stop” have it all bridal house is not encouraging creative growth in each segment, eg make up artists, photographers, gown designers, etc. Since the mass market (mainly Asian market) go to one stop for the sake of convenience, it leaves little room for independent designers, artists and photographers to stand out and make a name. It is as if whoever offers the best value wins, and who cares if the quality is not as good as that other independent provider.

    Of course that is just me ranting out loud. I also believe for the to-be-weds, the most important thing is to be happy! And I am so happy for you and Dinah. I initially wanted to offer my photography services (at a hugely discounted price) but I knew I was getting into this new job, and my schedule is very unpredictable. Fortunately I did not make the offer or else I will be eating myself up now! Remember to share more photos on your wedding day, though I cannot make it I do wish in every way I am there.

    • Actually, I agree with you on this bro. I realized that bridals doing this does give advantage to the to-be-weds.

      However, it also does come at a disadvantage as both to-be-weds sometimes do not get the best service, unless those working with the bridal are the best of course.

      Photos will be shared soon, and thank you for your ‘angpau’ bro. Very significant number I must say. Thank you bro.

  2. Bridal today have to be competitive. You are indeed blessed to be married at this era. During my time, good package was hard to find because they all “Jual Mahal”. They know we didn’t have much choices.

    RM7 K is considered cheap when compared to Rozita Che Wan’s wedding. Hahaha! Just kidding bro. But know this bro. It’s worth all the money when you are married to someone who is RIGHT.

    You can always earn the money back in time.

    Adios Amigos!
