A few weeks ago, Brenda had made a comment on an earlier post about the VIP dresses from HN Wedding. I was curious about this but was on vacation at the time so I didn’t get a chance to find out until recently when I went back to HN Wedding to view the photos.
Vivian explained that the dresses upstairs are available for the photoshoot as well as wedding day rental. The VIP dresses are actually located off site. The VIP dresses are mostly new and are consigned with the designers. They don’t own the dresses (unlike the ones at the studio), Which is why there is a $600 fee for rental and dry cleaning. Since the dresses are not at the studio, I was not able to see how they look like.
I know some people would like to wear a new dress for the wedding day, especially one that their fiance had never seen before. In my case Al had see me in at least 1/3 of the gowns at the studio but I’m sure I’ll still be able to surprise him with something!
Thinking back, when I went to tour the studio, I remember thinking whether I’d like the gowns they have. I’ve actually never worn a gown before (I went to my high school grad with a Chinese style top and dress) so I don’t even know how I’d look in one. During the dress picking session, I remember thinking some of the dresses don’t look good on me at all, especially the red dress. But it turned out really good in the photos. I guess it’s very different when the dress is by itself and when combined with the setting of the photoshoot.
