Evan and I visited many bridal boutiques before finally deciding on my wedding gown. It was so tiring but we really enjoyed the experience! I wanted to try as many gowns as possible so that I could choose the perfect one for me. Make sure you go to a boutique that lets you try the gowns BEFORE you sign a package. This is because you need to try on the gown to really know if it fits you. Below are ten of our favourite bridal studios and boutiques in Singapore, arranged in alphabetical order. Make sure you make an appointment before going down. Ultimately, we went with Rico-A-Mona 🙂
1. A Love Affair
A Love Affair is a cozy bridal studio located along Smith Street. We found quite a variety of pretty gowns here. The price range was the most affordable among all the bridal boutiques we visited. The staff was very helpful and patient too.

2. Amanda Lee
We found the gowns on display at Amanda Lee to be stylish, classy and elegant. The boutique makes made-to-measure gowns. We were assisted by Miah (senior designer) who was extremely helpful and nice.

Phone: +65 6738 6152
Our favourite bridal boutique of all: Rico-A-Mona! After visiting so many boutiques we finally decided to go with this one. What I really liked about this boutique is that they allowed me to try on many gowns during my first visit, even though I had not even signed any package with them yet. After trying the gowns, we were recommended some wedding packages but we didn’t sign on the spot because we wanted to think about it first. We only signed a few days later.
There is a large range of beautiful wedding gowns here and you will definitely find something that suits your preference and body shape. And surprisingly, the price was very affordable too. However, when we were negotiating the price, they quoted us the price before GST which was slightly misleading. But this was a minor issue.
Nearer my wedding day, I went down to select my wedding accessories (necklace, earrings, tiara, etc) and there was quite a large range of pretty jewellery to choose from.
In summary, this classy boutique had everything we were looking for: great service, gorgeous wedding gowns and affordable pricing!
Address: 33 Tanjong Pagar Rd, 088456 (near Tanjong Pagar MRT)
Phone: +65 6221 3383
8. The Gown Warehouse
The Gown Warehouse is a huge bridal studio located inside an industrial building in Woodlands. We found a large number of wedding gowns here and I managed to try out many gowns.

9. Tiara Bridal
We were assisted by the pretty lady boss of Tiara, Ling Lee, when we visited. Ling is an ex-Mediacorp celebrity who was very friendly and helpful when discussing with me about the gown selection. The boutique specializes in rental of gorgeous designer gowns at reasonable prices. The labels include Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Pronovias, and more.
