Dreaming of finding the perfect wedding dress? We asked top wedding planners Moments, MY Wedding Planner, Prep and Pretty Little Things to give us the inside scoop on the best bridal boutiques in Kuala Lumpur, and this list is the result.
From shops that stock the hottest international designer labels to offering devastatingly divine pieces, and even one that’s created an infinity wedding gown (aka one gown that can be transformed into four different looks), here are the bridal boutiques in KL you should pay attention to!
Located in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, the team at Armadale takes pride in offering personalised services for couples, whether it’s deciding on a particular photography style or choosing the bridal gown of your dreams. The gowns from their in-house bridal label range from timeless, feminine cuts to grander statement pieces, so you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice!
2. Celest Thoi
Trained as a designer in Auckland, New Zealand, Thoi established her eponymous boutique in 2011 and has not looked back since. Her exquisite lace and tulle creations have been worn by the likes of Malaysian model Sheena Liam and actress Debbie Goh, and she’s even presented a runway collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Kuala Lumpur. Besides rental, off-the-rack and made-to-measure options, Thoi also offers other services like designing bridesmaid dresses and bespoke wedding shoes at her store in The Gardens Mall at Midvalley City, Kuala Lumpur.
3. Designer Bridal Room
From Pronovias’ sexy tulle or halter neck mermaid looks to Annasul Y’s ethereal, feminine pieces (prices start at MYR5,000), this multi-label boutique in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur is the perfect place for brides-to-be who are going for a sophisticated and classy vibe at their weddings. Chic evening gowns and accessories such as headpieces and veils are also available for purchase.
Offering bridal and evening gown rentals, the pieces at this Petaling Jaya, Selangor-based store have a glamorous yet girly air. What’s more, they offer all brides-to-be a complimentary hour-long session with a stylist, who will dish out tips on fit, style and accessories to complement your gown of choice.
Malaysian fashion designer Meichi Phoon has an eye for romantic, flattering wedding gown designs. Based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, she produces “infinity wedding gowns” (prices begin at MYR1,399) under her Emcee Bridal label, where you can create multiple bridal looks with just one gown. For brides-to-be who are keen on convenience – and not so keen on multiple outfit changes – it means that you can go from ceremony to after-party with barely any fuss involved! If you’re only interested in having a one-of-a-kind piece, bespoke bridal wear is also offered, with prices starting at MYR3,200.
6. Red Lantern Studio
If you’re looking for wedding gowns with a touch of dramatic flair, Red Lantern Studio at Sunway Giza Mall in Petaling Jaya, Selangor is the place to go (appointments required). No gown rentals are available here; instead, every dress is custom-made to perfection, whether it’s a modern spin on a cheongsam or a bridal gown with feathery appliques.
7. Wedding Isle
Brides who prefer romantic, sexy styles will find everything that caters to their hearts’ desires at Wedding Isle, a boutique in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. A wide variety of ready-made and custom gowns are stocked here, ranging from low-back pieces with a detachable train to mermaid-cut gowns with a scalloped lace trim. In short, their designs will definitely help you look and feel your best on your big day!
8. The White Atelier
Loved the classic wedding gowns that British royals like Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie wore? Well, you’re in luck – The White Atelier in Petaling Jaya, Selangor specialises in a wonderful selection of elegant and timeless pieces, all locally designed and hand-sewn by an in-house team of seamstresses. Make an appointment for a free private consultation and create your dream dress with them (the entire process will take about three months and starts from MYR4,000), or try on some of their rental gowns (from MYR1,500 to MYR2,000, with complimentary alterations included). Top it all off with a pair of custom-made shoes to match your wedding dress. Priced between MYR600 to MYR2,500, it will take one to two months for production, and because it’s leather-lined, your feet will be extra comfortable for one full day of wedding activities.
