ALL the detailed preparation for a wedding can occupy an inordinate amount of time - time which some people simply don't have to spare. Enter La Sposa Wedding Services. From the making or hiring of bridal attire to getting to the church on time, La Sposa can handle all those time-consuming activities and ensure that nothing is overlooked. One of the first nuptial arrangements is a studio portrait. 'People like to take a picture in the studio six months to a year before their wedding day because they want to be well prepared,' said senior manager Claudia Choy. As most brides do not have their gowns at this point, the norm is to hire one from La Sposa which has 400 dresses to choose from. 'They usually want something simple with a very good cut and in silk. If the client has a good figure, she may want an updated style such as a sexy, off-the-shoulder dress,' Ms Choy said. La Sposa also has professional make-up artists and hair stylists to design an image for the bride-to-be. There is a choice of three looks - cute, classic and regal - which are determined mostly by the hairstyle. For the day of the wedding, the bride can book La Sposa's make-up and hair stylists to go to her home. Grooms can hire suits with tuxedo or traditional tail-coats, shirt, bow-tie and cummerband - he only needs to provide his own shoes. 'Rental is popular because a bow-tie costs a few hundred dollars and rental of the whole set costs about the same,' Ms Choy said. La Sposa can also take care of floral arrangements. Packages include the hire of both outfits, make-up and hair styling and a number of photographs, depending on the package selected.
