It was so special to work with Emily Juary for her wedding events, instead of the expected traditional ceremonies, Emily chose to have an intimate wedding with family. She did not have a Sangjit (The Traditional Chinese Betrothal Rituals) that is usually a must for most Indonesian Chinese. She also had her portraits taken and a Bali engagement weekend with friends.
We love her unconventional wedding style, and had a lot of fun curating her wardrobe with great variety, ranging from designers like Lee Grebenau and Alon Livne .. to Monique Lhuillier and Nicole Felicia…
We hear more from Emily as she shares her wedding gown experience with us:
“It’s extremely difficult to find an international designer wedding gown in Jakarta. Most Indonesians travel to Singapore or even further to find international designer brands, but I wanted a simpler way.
Truly Enamoured’s virtual styling and home fitting service are perfect for me, as I didn’t want to travel overseas just to find a wedding gown, especially during Covid times. While some would prefer to find their dream gown that way, it was not for me.”
“I worked with Truly Enamoured for all my wedding occasions including a solo beauty shoot, an intimate engagement party in Bali, and my wedding day.
During my first virtual consultation, I chose gowns for my beauty shoot, and my dedicated stylist went through the extensive catalogue of gowns that Truly Enamoured has. Sharing the top gowns I love, my stylist gave me expert advice and suggestions which helped me narrow down my search to 10 gowns from over 500 gowns.
TE sent me videos of a model with a build similar to me in the gowns so I could have a better idea how the gowns would look on me. After which, I shortlisted more gowns for home fitting, where I get to try the gowns I have shortlisted. They also sent me a very detailed measurement guide to make sure the fit will be perfect before sending them over.”
“I was extremely nervous about the gowns not arriving on time but the TEam was very confident from day one and they assured me not to worry as they’ve served many international brides prior. As promised, the gowns reached my doorstep and I got to play dress up in the comfort and safety of my home.
The day after the gowns arrived, I had another virtual session to share about the fittings and to list out all the alterations needed. The process was so seamless. Perfect for a Covid bride like me who wanted fuss-free wedding planning.”
“The same processes took place for my engagement party and actual day gowns. In fact, the processes were even simpler and more seamless as by that time I fully trusted my stylist and personally had a better idea on what I would like to wear.”
“All in all, I loved my entire experience with TE. Engaging them made wedding planning easier as I could get so many dresses from one boutique. The best part is the convenience. After the wedding I returned all the gowns and did not have to store a single one. So glad I opted for rental because the gowns would have taken up so much space in my home.
I may not have kept my wedding gowns which I loved, but I’ll have photos and videos to remember those moments and will look fondly at those and remember that one special day.”
Even though we connected virtually, we enjoyed dressing the chill and stylish Emily for her intimate wedding that’s no less stunning..
Congratulations to Emily on your beautiful wedding!
