*continuing from Wedding 101: Wedding Planners (Kuching/Sibu)*
I came home. Dad greeted 'Where have you been?'
'Bridal Studio Hunting' I said.
'HARRR?!' he exclaimed 'You surveyed all the Kuching Bridal Studios liao har?!'
Oh my cute Papa! Of course NOT!!! I laughed for a moment and a thought stroke in.
Hang on, dad has his point too, I don't have to spend almost every weekend being physically in one of the Bridal studios ehh! There must be a more efficient/ convenient way~
Then, *wink* I got an idea!
TIP #1: Why not survey them online (Fb, website)! It'll save a lot of time and you can still narrow down the list!
Read their REVIEWS.
Check out their photos for their PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS.
Message them if you wish!
This will save you a lot of time (and petrol too)!
TIP #2: Well, in case you are clueless about the Bridal Studios available in Kuching, I've compiled the list below. Some are pulled out from forums (in Black), some from my visits (Red).
It's a good place to start really!
You'll easily shortlist them in front of your computer screen.
Happy surveying! =)
(more tips at the bottom)
1) The list gives a broad overview about the available Bridal Studios in Kuching, it doesn't represent the Whole Bridal Studios in Kuching.
2) The list contains some Bridal Studios with some negative comments, however, judging that the comments were made a while ago, it would only be fair to evaluate them yourself.
So please, dear pretty Bride-to-be, do do your homework!

Hahahahaha!!! Dad's right! That's a lot of Bridal Studios I've visited! LOL!!
After you have figured out what you like and what you don't.
Your next step is to visit the Bridal Studio to learn more about their packages (next post - but for now in short, what is included and what is not) and not to forget their services!!!
|Image from fotolia.com|
TIP #3: Max of 3 Bridal Studios visits per day!! Anything more than that you'll get things mixed up.
TIP #4: Plan your journey!
As you can see, some of them are close by so you can hit them one go!
Bliss & Co (#1), Crown Bridal (#3), Mick Long (#13), The Bridal (#20)
CS Mondore (#4), The veil (#21), Jacky (#10)
M-style (# 14), France Taipei (#5), Scott (#19), Prince (#18)
Hollywood (#8), Very Taipei (#23), Mushroom King (#15)
Pearl (#16), LB Photography (#12), Phil Art (#17)
Okay, that's more than enough homework to do here.
