Review: Wedding Dress

My wedding dress is actually a very cheap version from an infamous international bridal house, Pronovias. Here's the actual design...

Mermaid tube dress with 3/4 sleeve bolero. Lace patches, sequins and beads. 

The actual dress costs thousands of dollars and of course I cannot afford such price. I don't really like the usual Malay wedding dress ala long kebaya and yes, I don't really like lace and heavy beadworks. It's just not me. The simpler the better without all the fuss but still stunning and stands out on its own. So I browsed online and found cheaper option for the dress in Ebay. I bought my wedding dress at Ebay ok! It was custom-made. I gave them my exact measurements, my choice of color and just pray that everything turns out ok.

3 weeks after that I received the parcel for my wedding dress. It's not exactly made based on the picture that I requested but similar. And I cannot complained much given the fact that I paid so very little for it. Everything was completely ok and I was satisfied. The beads are not too heavy but still adequate. The length is just like what I've imagined. Long and flowy and yes, the dress is heavy. Most importantly, it fits me well. But I did send it to Nik for a little alteration on the bolero and the hips area because I seemed to lost weight prior to the wedding. Hehe. And here's the actual dress that I wore during my wedding day...

Full view of the dress.

Veil is cheap too. RM30 only from Ebay. A total bargain! It's quite long sehingga menyapu lantai and Lova fold it into two for the tier which I heart so much!

elly, i so feel you! haha. i also dont like the typical long kebaya dress that most malay bride don nowadays as every bride looks almost the same to each other. and it seems like lace and beading are the only two materials and style that are available. finally someone who share the same thought as mine! hehe.

it never occurred to me that the dress was bought from ebay! i tot nik made it for u!
