Read on to find out more about the best bridal boutiques in Singapore!
#1: Blush House Bridal - understated elegance
“Understated elegance” is what comes to mind when scrolling through Blush House Bridal’s catalogue of photos. Instead of poofy, billowing skirts that can be potentially overwhelming especially for petites, this bridal boutique in Singapore founded by content creator Sheena Phua focuses on the magic of details.
Their gown silhouettes are kept relatively simple and classy, and are mostly A-line or mermaid cut. But that just allows their other attributes such as bead and lace embellishments, textured straps, and sultry side slits to shine more prominently - all without taking attention away from the bride’s natural beauty.
Blush House Bridal’s white gowns seem most popular among customers, but they do have a range of pastel gowns in shades like dusty pink, periwinkle, and champagne for ladies seeking some colour on their big day. Pick from those with long, flowing trains for a grand entrance, or shorter styles for easy twirling during pre-wedding photoshoots.
Chinoiserie is also part of their collection, with sophisticated cheongsam gowns that are perfect for Chinese wedding tea ceremonies and oriental-themed photoshoots. All painstakingly handcrafted, these combine traditional elements of the Chinese collar and floral embroidery with modern elements like sexy plunging backs and sweetheart necklines with illusion mesh.
Simply drop Blush House Bridal a DM or email them at [email protected] to make your booking.
#2: BQueens Wedding - all-inclusive packages with suits and bridesmaids’ dresses
Once a humble home-based business, BQueens Wedding has since grown to become a full-fledged physical boutique at Novena. Chances are, their name will come up a couple of times if you were to ask other brides for wedding gown recommendations. Despite their popularity, their prices for gown rental are still relatively competitive, even more so for all-inclusive packages with suits for the groom and bridesmaids’ dresses.
They’ve got everything from simple ROM dresses to full puffy ball gowns. Their range of dark blue gowns seem especially favoured for second march-ins at reception dinners!
Address: 273 Thomson Road, #04-03.04 Novena Gardens, Singapore 307644
Opening hours: 11am - 8pm daily (appointments preferred)
#3: Love to Love - versatile 2-piece options for mixing & matching
Having just opened in early 2021, Love to Love is fairly new, but we reckon it’s just a matter of time before they rise in popularity. Those who are looking for versatility will want to check out their 2-piece and 3-piece options, which allow you to mix and match various bodices to different skirts and detachable sleeves. With these, you can easily undergo a mini transformation and sport different looks for your solemnisation and banquet.
Their selection isn’t the largest at the moment, but most brides-to-be shouldn’t have problems finding a couple of pieces that look flattering on them. In fact, one of the lady bosses, Lili, is also their in-house gown designer, and she’s constantly coming up with new styles. Stay tuned to an expanded collection in time to come!
I made an appointment with zero expectations, already bracing myself for hard-selling tactics, but was pleasantly surprised to find out how warm and genuine the service was - and I wasn’t pushed into signing anything on the spot. The staff even helped me snap photos so I would be able to remember which gowns I liked best.
Love to Love
Address: 67 Ubi Crescent, #05-08 Techniques Centre, Singapore 408560
Opening hours: By appointment only
Telephone: 8803 1557
#4: The Story Of US - unique & affordable hand-sewn gowns
You’d be impressed to know that every single gown that’s part of The Story Of US’ collection is painstakingly designed and hand-sewn by the owner, who runs it as a one-woman show out of a Sembawang HDB bedroom. Despite its humble home-based operations, the room looks and feels very much like a legit bridal studio with racks of gowns lining 3 walls, a proper privacy curtain for changing, and a platform for you to mount when admiring the gown you’ve just tried.
Since the designs are uniquely her own, the owner cum seamstress is quite open to personalising designs based on customers’ preferences. For example, if there’s an off-shoulder piece that you like but find strapless tube bodices more suitable for you, she’ll be able to remove the sleeves. Likewise, the length and fit can be altered for your body proportions perfectly. These little edits are all done free-of-charge.
Best part? Accessories like necklaces, earrings, tiaras, veils, and bridal robes are included at no extra cost, and the rental period is a comfortable 7 days instead of the standard 4. Groom’s suits are also available at low rates. Check out their affordable range of prices via their Instagram page.

#5: The Gown Connoisseur - transparent pricing & online catalogue for easy browsing
Visiting a bridal boutique can be daunting when the options in front of you are seemingly endless, but there’s no need to feel overwhelmed at The Gown Connoisseur, as their online catalogue lets you browse through a handful of their selections and shortlist styles that you like even before heading down for your appointment. Of course, this isn’t a must, and ultimately there are more selections in-store, but it’s a perk nonetheless for those who like being prepared.
Pricing is transparent, with everything clearly listed on their website, so what you see is what you get. There are no “premium tiers” or hidden charges for specific ranges - rates are uniform across all gowns, so go forth and pick that dream piece without worrying about your wallet.
Fun fact: If you’re the first person to rent a new design, that gown gets named after you!
The Gown Connoisseur
Address: 3 Ang Mo Kio Street 62, #02-04 [email protected], Singapore 569139
Opening hours: Wednesday to Friday: 1pm - 10pm | Saturday & Sunday: 10am - 9pm (Closed on Monday & Tuesday)
Telephone: 9150 9120 (appointments preferred)
#6: Truly Enamoured - luxury picks in a Paris-inspired loft
Here’s one for the ladies of luxury. Truly Enamoured is a high-end bridal boutique that solely carries a curation of designer labels sourced from all over the world. Think big names that have appeared on fashion runways such as Marchesa, Berta, and Galia Lahav.
An appointment in their spacious Paris-inspired loft boutique on the 28th floor is a whole journey. After having your princess moment with their exquisite gowns in a private styling session, sip on a coffee or artisanal tea at their in-house coffee bar, where you can thumb through their albums full of wedding portraits for inspiration.
Of course, with such luxury comes a price to match - we’re talking about the 4-digit range, at the very least. It’s certainly not an expenditure that everyone can bear, but if your budget does allow for it, this royal once-in-a-lifetime experience is one you probably won’t regret.
Do note that there is a trying fee on weekends, which can later on be channelled into your gown rental.
Address: 138 Robinson Road, Suite #28-01 Oxley Tower, Singapore 068906
Opening hours: Monday to Friday: 10am - 8pm | Saturday: 11am - 6pm (Closed on Sunday)
Telephone: 6286 0281
