Bridezilla: Bridal survey

Okay, so before I decided to settle down with Yohannes bridal, I have been active-intensively seeking for a good and value for money bridal and prewedding photo vendor!

I was checking through the one and only for sure to look some of the name of the vendors and portfolios.. But I also actively blogwalking as well to see what real brides has said on the net.

Some vendors really caught my eyes:

1. JJ Bride (

I think this bridal has been the talk of the town since 5 years ago. They brought up new concept of Taiwanese edgy style with hundreds of pretty gown and amazing prewedding picture. Buuutt.. of course, you can’t pay peanut.. They are sooo expensive. Though am following the trick of the ex real brides on the forum, I tried to seek people who wanted to shift over their down payment, so I can get old price. I actually almost made a deal with one of the girl for 17 mio package (including everything, from make-up, bridal, prewed indoor outdoor, groom’s tuxedo).

But luckily, a day before meeting the girl, my mum said that she doesn’t want me to do the make-up in Jakarta because it’s just too much hassle. So I cancelled the meeting and decided to hire a MUA in Bogor. But the offer from Yohannes bridal is too tempting to reject! hehe..

2. Kaneta Bridal

They have cute gowns in their website, thus they also quite a good photographer. Buuut, the package price is too confusing to me, in Facebook the latest promo was 12.8 mio IDR for the same package as Yohannes, but when I called them, they said the package is 18 mio IDR. I was shocked, so I decided to delete them from my list.. LOL

Bridezilla: Yohannes Bridal

Today me and BF went to Yohannes bridal since they have a very interesting promo! 7.8 mio IDR only, including bridal gown, make-up for bride, moms, and bridesmaid, and prewedding indoor photo! It’s super cheap, none can beat them, even a new bridal. 

When I went there, I was amazed with a bride which just done her make-up there.. she looks amazing, flawless, and her hair do accessories is exactly like what I wanted! Basically, I was ‘amazed’ at the first sight.

Then I saw their wedding gown collections, it was only 5 mio IDR gown range, which is the cheapest.. but I think they were quite nice with a lots of sequins.

The marketing girl also quite nice and she didn’t push me to upgrade my package nor take the offer ASAP.. 

She did tell me that we can upgrade the photo sessions, because currently we can only get 10 photos wearing 1 gown, and if I add 1.5 mio IDR, I can get 20 photos with 3 other gowns. Well, I’ll think about it.. :))

Then if I want to upgrade the canvas picture from 50x60cm to 70x100cm, I also need to add 600,000 IDR.. 

After talking with BF, I finally paid the downpayment, which is 75% from the total amount 7.8 mio. We did a financial analysis, LOL.. to add 600,000 for canvas 70x100cm and 2.5 mio IDR for the cost of asking make-up artist to come to our venue for the retouch session.

Yippiii! I hope I made the right decision 😀
