You've witnessed your friends & relatives get married. Perhaps you have been their bridesmaid once or twice (just don't cross 3 times!)
Well, now... it’s your turn! The thought of seeing yourself walking down the aisle may already feel surreal at this point.
Believe it or not, your tears will fall on that day. You won't be able to hold your emotions back when you see your mum, dad, and your girl-friends — all the people you love gathered in front of you — share your joy, cheering for you.
It is an incredible feeling that you will never forget. My advice: Immerse yourself in the moment. Forget the details.
The day will fly by soooo fast you can't believe it. I mean, months and months of preparation seem never-ending, but the actual day itself is like video on 4x fast forward. Within a snap, you're done.
The next day, you wake up and realize that now you have a new status. You are a wife.
A wedding is special in many ways. It is the start of many things. Unfortunately, it is also the start of quarrels. At least, for my husband and I.
My husband proposed to me and I thought it would be a fairy tale love story from then on. We would live happily forever.
Boy was I wrong. We both have hectic day jobs and didn't start planning until it was too late.
We disagreed on almost everything— the number of guests to invite, the number of sets of clothing to change and even on minor details such as how many photos to buy.
To make it worse, his mum wanted me to wear the 'Kua' in the morning as per Cantonese customs, which I didn't have the slightest liking for. Fortunately, a mutual friend acted as a 3rd party advisor to smooth out the bumps for us. However….
Since then, I've envisioned a perfect wedding. I told myself:
On the wedding day, you will stand proudly in front of everyone as you look into the eyes of the one promising to love you forever because you are just the right amount of everything wonderful
As fate would have it, I started a wedding boutique with the goal of creating this very wedding for couples like my husband and I. I've did it. From 2006 until today, I have helped 5000 couples orchestrate their most important day. I know the gravitas of each and every wedding we plan. We treat your wedding the same way we would our own.
Have your very own proactive wedding assistant with a custom timeline & calendar (based on quality management system certification— ISO 9001:2015) who anticipates every next step to make your dream wedding a reality?
Customize your bridal package to be exactly what you want. This means you can enjoy the flexibility of tailoring your package to your needs and not paying for the things you don't need.
Choose from a full range of over 1000 designer couture gowns (refreshed thrice a year) without having to pay extra. Gowns are not separated into 'premium' or 'normal' range so you don't have to worry about any hidden costs.
Talk to a wedding guru instead of a pushy salesperson so that you'll be clear-headed enough to make the right decision and go with something that you will not regret 10 years down the road.
For the past 12 years, we've worked with over 5000 couples (including celebrities such as Xiaxue, Tay Kewei & Alfred Sim, Melody Yap & Lady Iron Chef) to take them from being clueless or overwhelmed with wedding planning to being assured and seeing everything in a rosy glow — knowing that they are in safe hands. Now, we want to help you.
We are the first bridal boutique in Singapore to adopt a redeemable point system for our bridal packages. Each bridal package comes with a fixed number of ‘wishing stars’, which can be used to redeem an extensive range of bridal services. This includes bridal services such as makeup and hair-styling, wedding floral bouquets, wedding car decoration, venue decoration and props rental. There is nothing fixed and no hidden cost within the package when picking and choosing the services you require.
Choosing a wedding dress can be extremely stressful, but it is stressful for a good reason. You wouldn't want a wedding dress that has a design of yesteryear, do you? Our in-house gown & suit designers take inspirations from international bridal fashion and come out with new designs twice a year. Some of the latest trends include low V back, mermaid silhouette, and the simplistic yet elegant bateau neckline most recently worn by the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
As the famous quote goes – “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”. You are organizing your wedding for the first time but we have done it for over 5000 couples within the span of 12 years. We know the nuts and bolts that could go wrong and we review our process to ensure the next couple would not meet any hiccups. We are the only bridal boutique that has been awarded the world recognised ISO:9001:2015 certificate — as proof of our quality management system. Your concerns will never be ignored with our 24/7 dedicated email responder and you can be assured that any last minute emergencies will be promptly taken care of.
More than just offering exquisite gowns, professional wedding photography & videography, La Belle Couture serves as a one stop bridal solution that delivers a hassle free & holistic wedding experience. Our comprehensive services cover everything (well, almost!) under one roof. If you require other wedding related services beyond our scope, you can simply tap into our wide network of qualified partners.
It’s your wedding, not ours. You are the bride & groom, not us. We respect your decision. We will not try to suggest to you some grandiose setting if all you want is a simple, cosy one. There is nothing more frustrating than you starting off your wedding planning excitedly, but ending up with a totally different version of what you have envisioned. Our bridal specialist will respect your choice of style – such as wearing sneakers for your wedding! We are cool with that!
Unlike other bridal stores, Labelle was very transparent with their pricing which I appreciate! I liked how my bridal coordinator May Ling was not pushy AT ALL. In fact, she answered all our queries and gave us ample time to think and decide. Throughout my wedding process, May Ling also helped a lot by providing me a clear schedule. There were a couple of times that I made last minute changes but she was able to promptly assist me, including helping me find a gown that was comfortable. Thank you Labelle for the great service!
Engaging labelle couture for our special day is the best decision ever! Our bridal specialist May has been such a great help, a rare gem who has full dedication and passion in this industry thus she was extremely detailed and was very particular about small little details from the gowns, suits and car deco to ensure everything is perfect! My MUA vivi was also fantastic with her makeup skills. She was professional and provided great advice, i love my hairdo and makeup! The whole team in labelle couture such as kenny, rayden has been very helpful and friendly and i always look forward to go to the studio. Many thanks to all of them for this great experience, a good bridal vendor defintely boost up our mood as we know we are in good hands! -
Our bridal packages are priced slightly above many of the bridal boutiques in Singapore, and have been this way for 12 years.
If you are a price shopper, our packages might not be for you. At La Belle, we value the work done by our designers, advisors and coordinators. They all work as a team to plan the perfect wedding for you.
We are highly confident of our gown designs that we update thrice yearly, and more importantly, our processes and services that come from years of refinement. We don’t call ourselves professional for nothing.
A word of caution – beware of bridal boutiques that come off as too cheap. Do your due diligence and check on the boutique before signing anything.
It’s a misconception that planning your wedding with a bridal boutique means you are restricted. At La Belle, we set out to change this industry norm. After much brainstorming with the team, we came up with a customizable package that functions almost like a ‘buffet’ for brides- and grooms-to-be to choose their picks from.
Yes, we do.
We have our in-house seamstress on standby on your wedding day to stitch up some last minute differences. You will not be charged extra as it is important that the gown/suit fits you like a glove on your wedding day! We understand how weight fluctuations are common, so we include complementary alteration services.
We are upfront with our charges and the following items/services are at additional charges if required:
Artificial Eyelashes – $20 nett
Ampoule – $50 nett
Early hours fee per service provider before 7am – $100 nett/hr
Transportation fee for ROM makeup & hair home service – $50 nett
Wedding day and night makeup service split day charge – $150nett
A refundable deposit for each rental item (wedding gown/suit) – $300 for local rental and $500 for overseas rental
Complimentary alteration and dry cleaning are included.
No. All the gowns designed by our in-house designers at La Belle are included in all the packages. You can pick and choose from the entire selection of gown and suit collections. There is no tier for gowns and there will not be any additional charges involved. All our gowns are new and updated twice yearly.
Yes, we do. While the selection will not be as extensive as the regular sized dresses, there are dresses made for curvier brides. The range availability will largely depend on the size required. Let us know your size and we can arrange a gown fitting appointment.
Yes, we want to make sure the plan (crafted out together with you) adds value to you first before you pay a cent. If you think it's unsatisfactory and will not work for you, there is no need to commit to it. You'll not only risk nothing, but also go home with a better understanding of how to plan your dream wedding.
We are a league of ordinary yet professional folks who are dedicated to the art of creating extraordinary wedding experiences. Comprising the most committed individuals with extensive experience in the wedding industry, our team is driven to ensure that your wedding journey will be as smooth as possible.
You can expect nothing less, always more.
Here at Labelle Couture, we would love to help every couple in Singapore plan their wedding, but recognize that we are not suitable for everyone. It could be due to price point, filled-up slots or difference in styles. In any case, we think that you make the best decisions only with sufficient information.
Having been in the wedding industry for over 10 years, we’ve come to realise that most couples shop with no prior knowledge, leaving them as easy prey for some companies through their hard sell tactics. In the end, expectations were not met, leaving only nasty memories of their wedding. As such, we are offering a complimentary ‘’Wedding Guru Consultation’’ for you to get clear on what you need/want and what you don’t. Our experience with 5000 couples tells us this minimizes the occurrences of quarrels throughout the wedding planning process.
First 50 couples will receive our complimentary "Wedding Planning Starter Kit" that includes a wedding budget planner, wedding day programme & timeline, guest list manager, things to bring on your wedding day, pre-wedding photo shoot checklist, wedding vow samples and much more!
With love, Teo Peiru
