Editor’s Note: The following post is by a Singaporean couple whom opted to have their Bridal/ Wedding Photoshoot done in Johor Bahru. See their related post here.
11 Jan 2009 9.30am. It has arrived. NO, I don’t mean my wedding day because that would be The BIGGEST Day in my life!! I have been hitting the gym more often, since signing on the dotted line, in my last dash to tone up my slightly plump physique and in a bid to make my last attempts to look more photogenic for the Photo Shoot.
Venus Bridal actually called us twice to:
1) Remind us of the appointment date and time
2) Remind us to be punctual (you know typical human beings are simply not punctual!!)
3) Remind us of the items we are supposed to bring. Read on…

Never in my sanest mind have I ever imagined that I would even think about taking up a wedding bridal package across the causeway in Johor Bahru (Johor Baru, Johore Bahru, Johor Baharu), Malaysia. Stories of words spelt wrongly imprinted in bridal albums, stories of couples risking their lives and wallets at the mercy of robbers and snatch thieves, all in a bid to save a few thousand, but ended up losing more. Stories after stories that do nothing except to reinforce my impression that it is a trip that is not worth even a thought in my mind.
I was (as you would have probably guessed) WRONG.
Firstly, I was proven wrong by the beautiful album layouts and designs that I saw with my OWN EYES. My own brother and my best pal, both had their wedding/bridal photo shoot taken with Johor Bahru Bridal studios and the album design was so awesome and captivating, that it gave me a little second thought of pursuing an album in Johor Bahru. And hence, this second thought catapulted me into my first investigative action of prying for insights and valuable information in the internet realm. I went into several online forums with still, a cynical mindset. It was a battle of words between satisfied couples and couples who felt that they were ‘conned’ into signing, given utterly bad service by the bridal studio after paying the initial deposit. I also learned what to negotiate for, which bridal shops to look out for, etc.
Equipped with weeks of ‘information download’ into my brain memory space from the internet, I embarked on my maiden journey across ‘THE BRIDGE’ totally prepared to tussle and wrestle with every breathe that I have, with any sales person from the bridal studio in a quest for my most “Value-For-Money” PLUS top quality album package. Kiasuism at work!!
I had already shortlisted 7 bridal studios, namely:
Superstar Wedding @ CitySquare
Printemps Wedding @ CitySquare
Dawn’s Wedding @ CitySquare
Mona Lisa Bridal Palace @ CitySquare
Fables Bridal Couture @ Taman Sri Tebrau (near Taman Sentosa)
Venus Bridal Selection @ Taman Sri Tebrau (near Taman Sentosa)
Inspiration @ Taman Sentosa
