Weddings are a great way for couples to show off their personalities, and what better time for brides to express their personal style than with the dress of their dreams? With the number of bridal boutiques and bespoke options burgeoning in Singapore, we decided to not just update our “Top 10 Bridal Boutiques in Singapore” feature but put together a fresh list of some of the newest players in town (as well as have a peek at the trend of online dress rental sites) to help you with your search for the perfect wedding and evening gown!

1. Truly Enamoured
Started by two sisters Michelle and Linda, Truly Enamoured aspires to inspire local weddings to take on a fine art aesthetic by making premium designers accessible to brides.

2. Jules Elie
Inspired by their own experience as brides, founders Li Ying and Serene wanted to help fill the middle ground between having to buy designer gowns with steep price tags and renting locally-designed gowns. Their collection includes timelessly romantic wedding dresses from labels such as Monique Lhuillier, Vera Wang, Maggie Sottero and Watters as well as a selection of evening gowns. Jules Elie gives brides the opportunity to rent and don a designer gown without worrying about the fate of their dress after, or busting the wedding budget.

The local players in this industry include Covetella, Rent A Dress, The Dress AccessStyle Lease and Rent The Label, and allow women to rent and return with ease.
