House Rule for visiting Dream Wedding
Change is the only constant and as many of you know, in our attempt to continuously reinvent ourselves, Dream Wedding introduced the new tagline “一生只给一人的幸福”. While translations are never able to fully capture the original meaning, this phrase loosely translates to only giving one person happiness in (his) lifetime. In keeping with our new slogan, there are a spate of new rules for visiting our boutique!
1) The Groom is only allowed to bring one Bride to our boutique in his lifetime
“Till death do us part”- this is the commitment that Dream Wedding wishes to reaffirm in serving only one bride per groom. Not to worry, your marriage history is irrelevant as our only criteria is that the grooms have not registered another woman’s name under his when signing with our boutique.
2) The first appointment with our boutique must be made by the Groom
Before you cry “sexist”, please understand that Dream Wedding only wishes for our grooms to take an active interest in the wedding preparation process and help with the back-end work (such as making an appointment) so that our brides can relax and enjoy the most exciting part of wedding preparation- choosing a gown! Rest assured, only the FIRST appointment must be made by the groom. Subsequent appointments may be made by the brides!
3) Couples will only be served if they come in as a pair for their first appointment
We know, it can be difficult to find a common time to drop by; but just as marriage is a union between two people, Dream Wedding believes that wedding preparation should also be a task for two. Come down together for a consultation and we will be better positioned to discuss both your needs!
While the layman may find our rules to be at best odd and at worst archaic, we do have our own reasons for insisting on these rules. At the top of our list is our own observations of couples in our boutique where we found that grooms tend to disengage more frequently than brides. Totally understandable, since gown selection is akin to shopping, which has always been a woman's arena. However, we also noticed that engaged grooms are crucial in amplifying enjoyment during this sometimes tedious process.
Hence, we hope to encourage our grooms to take on the mantle and be more proactive so that we can all have a smooth sailing and joyful wedding preparation experience!
