Best Couture!

I was wide awake last Saturday early morning at 5am, after reading this heart-warming email from one of my lovely bride. Totally overjoyed and  I must admit I felt so touched after reading it, couldn’t wait to post the email straight away here!

Our experience meeting her the first time at the wedding exhibition was great, had the chance to meet her friendly and supportive mum as well as her father-in-law. She has been such an understanding bride (we love her couture style too!) and she knows exactly what she wants.  She’s a sweetheart!

It was quite challenging at first far away here in UK communicating with via emails and phone calls, somehow we manage to get the understanding and finally create the masterpiece for her special day! We were truly honoured to play a major role in helping her to create her dream wedding dress and most importantly to get to know her better. Ok folks, let’s hear it from her…

“After my surprise proposal on 18th March 2011, all I can think about is my wedding dress. Would it be a rental? A couture? I had a lot of help from my mom on the wedding planning but the one thing that I requested for a 100% control is my dress. I want it to be the only outstanding thing during my wedding so eventually, I turned into a bridezilla.

I have scouted many bridal galleries in KL and none of the dress gave me the “wow” factor. And of course it was always a bride’s dream to wear a couture wedding dress but not every bride can afford it. The 1st time I met Carol from Diva Darling was during a wedding fair in July 2011. My friend highly recommended her work. I fell in love with her sample dresses immediately. I was fortunate enough to be offered a promotion which consists of 1 wedding gown, 1 evening dress and 1 mother of the bride dress for a fraction price of 1 piece of designer dress. I found some designs from the internet and run it through with Carol and I was thrilled when she told me that her seamstress is able to make the dress according to the design I gave her. Even though Carol was in the UK at the time, she was very helpful in informing me on the progress of the dress.

Her inspiration – Elie Saab couture ‘Astarte’ wedding dress

Her Astarte wedding dress was made from full beaded bustier with floral motifs and vineyard lace flowing down her flowy soft tulle.

After months of anticipating, I finally saw my dresses and it fitted perfectly. My mom was also very pleased with her dress. I have to say that the workmanship was flawless and the detailing was gorgeous. I knew from the look of my guests when I was wearing my dresses that I was stunning. My mom and I received tons and tons of compliments during my wedding. Ultimately, my wedding day was the happiest day of my life but it wouldn’t be complete without my perfect dresses from Diva Darling.

I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Diva Darling for being so helpful throughout the whole process and also the seamstress for making me such perfect and wonderful dresses.”
