Say No to Wedding Packages Again

Following through our earlier post on why we say No to Wedding Packages, we are here to say No to Wedding Packages again with the many recent close down of Bridal Shops like Calla Bridal earlier this year and Sophia Wedding Collection just this month.

With the recent global economy crisis, smaller retailers are starting to slowly closing down and moved out of the store. This is visible at the nearest shopping mall, Jurong Point that is the biggest mall at Boon Lay and having a heavy shoppers traffic. When these retailers moved out, shoppers get to enjoy heavily discounted items that the retailers would want to clear away. This way, shoppers are at the advantage of enjoying discounted goods.

However, when couples shop with Bridal Shops to provide their Wedding essentials, the last thing they want to happen is the closing down of the Bridal Shops that they have signed their wedding packages with.

The recent closure of Sophia Wedding Collection has left 73 couples stranded when it suddenly closed on the 10th October i.e. last Saturday, and the owner remained uncontactable as reported by Channel News Asia. Among the affected couples, some have signed and paid for wedding packages that ranges from S$3,688 to as high at S$7,000. Assuming an average amount paid by each couple of S$5,000, the bosses of Sophia Wedding Collection could have been absconded with a total of S$365,000.

To prevent such circumstances from happening to You, Cupido Gowns advise wedding couples to exercise caution when signing up wedding packages if they really need one, otherwise it will be good to go ala carte.

P/S: Our price starts from Only S$300 to S$600 and we definitely will not abscond with such low value of money. Nevertheless, our clients claim that the quality of our gowns are way beyond what the Bridal Shops are offering.


Wedding Packages

Many of our clients came to ask for Wedding Packages for their planned Photoshoot and also for their upcoming Wedding Day. And we always gracefully rejected the idea of having Wedding Packages. Why so? Read on to find out more.

What is being offered in the market as Wedding Packages by bridal shops usually include wedding photography, gowns and suits for the couple and eventually, the photo album. These packages often times look very attractive when it is first promoted at roadshows or bridal fair.

However, we have to caution couples whom are going for these “Too Good To Be True” wedding packages as we have met with too many couples whom regretted their decision eventually when the actual package is activated.

When couples signed up for the wedding packages at these bridal roadshows, they were shown the most beautiful wedding albums where the brides (especially) wore elegant, beautiful wedding gowns and some  other evening gowns.

Most times, these packages come with hidden agenda. Eventually when these wedding packages were signed, money been paid for and when the time comes to activate the package during the process of choosing the gowns, it is totally a different story.

Usually during these bridal fairs, couples are being convinced to sign a basic package that usually cost $3,000 to lock them in. And thus, when time comes for Brides to choose their preferred gowns, many times they were restricted to a selected rack of gowns based on the basic package signed upon and of which the gowns available are not as impressive. Couples will then be offered premium rack gowns that would require additional top up payment.

On top of that, with the advent of improved technologies, it is a dismal for couples when not all of the digital photos were given to them. They are usually restricted to only about 30 copies in digital form. When couples request for all the other digital photos, they are again required to top up a substantial payment.

Having said that, we advise couples to go the extra mile to choose your preferred ala carte wedding photographer and wedding gowns provider as it would definitely prove worthwhile. Couples will get to have all the digital photos and choose the definite quality wedding gowns with no disappointment when it is done ala carte.
