Chronology - Julia Wedding News (JWN)

[The chronology of events is simply acts as a reference to give brides a rough idea of the flow of events. Remember to always communicate with your bridal coordinator. No one will know what you desire until you voice them out.] - original text from SB

My journey with a bridal studio is pretty straight forward and simple. Right from the start I knew that I wanted off the rack gowns as I was too lazy to go through the hassle of made to measure gowns and I did see the horror story of the MTM gown from SB. With the spouse out of town, it means alot of decisions is really up to my hands so I wanted everything to be simple and efficient.

After the husband outright said he preferred a bridal shop over any other choices I had showed him, I chose Julia Wedding News as it was recommended by an old family friend of ours. I like the quality of their gowns as the choice of lace/tulle/chiffon were of high quality. The wedding package pricing fitted into our budget and signing the package on our birthday month did help save some moolahs. The item that helped sealed the deal was they allowed me to bring 2 gowns and 1 suit over to Tokyo, Japan for our second reception at no extra charge with a longer rental period. (Of course, that was after some hard bargaining).

In JWN, gowns used for the photoshoot would be different from the actual day wedding gowns (but that is another story to tell, we would save it for the next post) so brides can go for a different look for their photoshoot and actual day.
