Solemnization #8 - ROM Dress Tryout with Bestie! :)

Went down to Vivagown, Jess Couture and Bridal Closet last week,
in search of my ROM dress with my artistically talented bestie JL.

JL is also the appointed Creative Director for my ROM event!
Hehe... i thought of that title just for her. Thanks dear!
JL's already quite pressured by my nonchalent-till-last-minute style. hehe... Sorry!

Oh ya, I also have a brilliant Royal Music & Food Director! Ha... 
Will disclose the identity soon. :)
She hasn't give me any updates since i last sent her the tentative program schedule *hint hint*.
Same style as me...hehe ;p

Vivagown operates in a HDB unit at CCK. The lady boss LiMay is SUPER friendly and agrees to almost all our requests such as to add beads etc. She does the sewing, alteration, makeup herself. She used to be an interior designer, then decides to opt for a change. Loves her house decor too, designed by herself. On a side note, the lady boss is pretty! :) One thing to note is the variety of dresses are rather limited.

Jess Couture operates in a shophouse at North Bridge Rd. Hmm... first thing we were introduced to were the various ROM and Wedding packages, unlike other shops which showed us the dresses first. The lady persisted that the wedding package is a good deal, coz it includes a trial makeup and free rental of mini dress which can be used during ROM. Hmm... too long for me to commit. The dresses are ok. We are not given the opportunity to get to choose the dresses ourselves though. hmm...

The moment we reach there... SUPER crowded lah! There's a big room with many dresses and accessories to rent. There's a rather sizable changing room which was partitioned into 3 section using cloth. Halfway into changing, I was asked to come out to give way to another customer. Hmm... weird?!? But the lady boss Elsie is really friendly and has brilliant concepts about what to wear to match with what etc. We didn't finish trying coz waiting for the changing room took too much time, thus we booked another appointment for next weekend. The girl there Felicia said it will be less crowded in early afternoon. We went in the evening this time.

Till then :)
