Tagged: Wedding Dress






Sue Lin, a fun loving and outgoing lady, first described her wedding dress as one that was “dreamy in tulle”. Working with her was a wonderful treat as her openness gave us the freedom to flex our creative muscles. She would send us pictures of herself in her favorite outfits which helped us a great deal in defining her unique personality and subtle tastes in clothes. Finally, after what can only be described as an invigorating flurry of creative fireworks, we arrived at a lovely pair of wedding gowns that suited her wonderfully.

Sue Lin glided down the aisle in her elegant white, multiple-tiered tulle wedding dress with a sheer lacy boat neckline. The delicately-pleated tulle added a dimension to the lace bodice. A lovely chapel-train completes the dress. The type of tulle was selected specifically to ensure that the fluffy wedding dress does not get in her way. Sue Lin loved the light-weight tulle and carried it effortlessly.





For her wedding reception, Sue Lin changed into her slim A-line chiffon evening dress with parted chiffon panels and a sweep train. The delicate lace adorned the sheer deep V-neckline and the sheer elbow length lace sleeves. The waist line was highlighted with a slim pink sash and Swarovski crystals.

We would to thank Sue Lin, for entrusting us with her wedding dresses and sharing with us all the joy and happiness of her special day! :D

Suet and Mike’s Wedding

Suet and Mike had their beautiful engagement photographs taken at Cheong Fatt Tze, Penang on a lovely sunny morning. Her vibrant red Cheongsam was a wonderful contrast with the  walls of the Blue Mansion.

The engagement photography featured one of Suet’s wedding dress, which was a custom designed, made-to-measure, fit-and-flare Cheongsam in full Japanese lace. The sheer low back of the dress was adorned with lace appliques and lined with matching lace buttons. Her hair accessory was a handmade flower from the same duchess satin of her Cheongsam. Pearls were sewn at the center of the petals to highlight the lovely piece.

Suet contacted us online as she made preparations for her wedding from abroad. Her wedding dress was made in advance and was ready for her first fitting session when she returned to Penang a few days before her wedding.

Wondering how we managed to create a made-to-measure dress without first meeting the bride? Chiffon & Lace has established a system exclusively for this purpose. The design ideas, sketches, material selection and dress delivery details were communicated via emails. Suet was guided through an easy-to-follow but comprehensive measurement guide. Typically, these measurements are done by a local tailor. However, due to its simplicity, Suet appointed Mike to take her full body measurements. The unique body measurement system enables us to make a dress that fits the bride’s body as close as possible. Rarely, minor alterations are required – but thanks to Mike! – Suet’s wedding Cheongsam was a perfect fit on the first fitting!

All that hard work was rewarded with a happy smile on Suet’s face when she put on the Cheongsam for the first time. We would like to thank Suet Kee for trusting us to make her wedding Cheongsam although we had not met in person until the first fitting. We would also like to thank Alex Tan for the beautiful pictures that showcase the dress.

Our Real Bride this week is the lithe Alice with her exquisite full lace dress.


Full Lace Wedding Dress

For her church ceremony, she wears a full-laced, one-shoulder, fit-and-flare wedding dress. Just look at the intricate floral details encapsulated in her French lace bridal gown!

The lace-work on the wedding dress took a lot of skill and experience, which Chiffon & Lace tailors and designer were happy to provide. It takes skill and dedication to work on such fragile and delicate material.

Her full-bodied train is the one of the most distinguishing feature of her wedding gown, owing its elaborately designed lace highlights, a testament to the skill of our team. Alice looked simply wonderful, with the abundance of lace that complimenting her slender physique. The lace grants her dress lightness, making it seem ephemeral.

A detachable lace flower is placed at the lower back, a natural highlight that complements the fluid elegance of the lace.

Alice wears a stunning ankle-length turqoise Cheongsam for her wedding reception.

Her fetching Shantung silk Cheongsam is decorated with pink sheer lace on the neckline, sleeves and back. Matching French lace appliques decorate the collar, sweetheart neckline and the high slit (of course!).

Wedding Reception: 1881 Chong Tian Hotel, Penang
Bridal Gown: Chiffon & Lace custom designed made-to-measure convertible wedding dress in cream white duchess satin

Hooi Chuan is a strong-spirited and joyful girl who enjoys the simple pleasures of living. Her wedding dress is perfectly suited for her small and intimate wedding ceremony. Rather than be flamboyant, the wedding dress is sleek and elegant: an appealing cream white duchess satin convertible dress. It features a figure-hugging cocktail length bandage dress, and a detachable hi-low bubble hem skirt. The strips of her bandage dress are curved at the bustier and narrowed around the waist, for a well-defined waistline. Alan was clearly in awe of her – rendered speechless by her sassy bandage dress at the pre-wedding party.

Later at the wedding reception, the dress was paired with a flared hi-low skirt for a little touch of under-stated style. The hi-low skirt is complemented with a small train that gives a svelte silhouette to the dress. We absolutely adore her bubble hem, ending at mid-thigh – perfect for showing off those slender legs of hers!

Enjoy the pictures :)
