For us girls, any occasion can be an excuse to play dress-up, especially for a major one such as your prewedding photography! We imagine you must have so many ideas, or maybe none for you clueless brides-to be out there. But fret not, SweetEscape is here to deliver some of the most fashionable yet easy tips for your pre-wedding outfits. So read on and get ready for some styling!
A prewedding photo session can be a parade of different outfits or maybe just one or two pieces. Regardless of how many outfits you have prepared, remember to pick at least one or the dress that truly shines and dazzles. Select one dress that is the star of the pre-wedding session, something that looks absolutely stunning, and has a touch of classic that will go beyond seasons or trends.
We personally love the superbly effortless and elegant style that our designer friend, Bramanta Wijaya, embodies. His collection ranges from full dramatic gown to something simple with a timeless and sophisticated flair. Take a look at his virtual gallery and we know you will be lusting over some pieces immediately.
Well, if you do, then good news for your SweetEscape fans because we have teamed up with the talented fashion maker. Get a 25% discount on Bramanta Wijaya Pink Label Ready-to-Wear collection by booking with SweetEscape during September! Hurry up and snatch the deal girls.
The rule with accessories is pretty much the same with your dress : “ choose classic”. Avoid seasonal trend with your pre-wedding accessories as you want to achieve that timeless and eternal feel with your pre-wedding photography.
Another guideline that we swears by is “ quality over quantity”, so try not to over accessorize but instead pick a statement piece of accessories to really highlight your overall look.
At SweetEscape, we’re obsessed with From Tiny Islands which perfectly translates everything we are looking for in accessories. From daily wear to something dainty and special for wedding and engagement with exceptional quality and classic touch, this brand has it all!

Some colors are classified as photogenic, while some are not- and your outfit can be the main attraction to all the colors that are happening in the pre-wedding session.
Avoid overemphasizing colors such as orange, neon, or red and stick with complimenting colors such as cool, solid and neutral tones. If you want to add a dash of interesting pop to the shoot, you can also do so with certain accessories or props, for example your shoes, an umbrella, etc to make the photo stands out.
Big bold patterns can be quite distracting especially if there are too many of them going on at the same time. If you want to work with big bold patterns, make sure it’s subdued and sparring enough so that it doesn’t overwhelm your whole look.
The same goes with stripes and checks which can turn out jarring on camera and don’t work well with close-up shots. Our tip? It’s truly best to go with something neutral and avoid big patterns altogether

Winter has passed, flowers are blooming, and a new season has come! Spring is celebrated extensively in most part of the world with joy and excitement, and more-often-than-not with unique and colourful festivals! Take a look at some that we've complied to inspire you for choosing your next spring-break holiday destination!
Our first spring festival is Songkran, also known as the Thai New Year. You will definitely love Songkran, because this festival is a good excuse for adults and kids alike to sprinkle, spray or even flush others with water in a kingdom-wide water fight, from the streets of Bangkok, to mountainous Chiang Mai, all the way to the sandy beaches of Phuket! The Thai people believe that water is spiritually purifying, cleansing us from any bad luck or grievances for the past year, and blessing us with renewed fortune and happiness for the coming year. This extremely fun festival is fittingly held every April, which is Thailand's hottest month of the year!
The White House Easter Egg Roll is a timeless tradition that dates back to 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes, held on the White House South Lawn in Washington D.C. each Easter Monday for children aged 13 and younger and their parents, hosted by the current President and the First Lady. The Egg Roll is basically a race, where children push an egg through the grass with a long-handled spoon, while other activities such as live music and decorated Easter eggs exhibition happen around the lawn, encouraging kids and young people to live healthy and active lives.
If you plan to visit the beautiful New Delhi, Jaipur, or Agra for holiday, why not come in late March to join the explosion of colours in the Holi festival! Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, and is super-popular among tourists as well. Also known as the Festival of Colours, participants splash each other with multi-coloured powders, signifying the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and thanksgiving for good harvest. It is also a great occasion for locals to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. Get ready to be fully covered with colours!
Also known as the Tomb-Sweeping Day, Ching Ming Festival has been celebrated by Chinese people for over 2500 years. During Ching Ming, celebrated every April 5th, Chinese families all over china--from big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, or Guangzhou to small vilages across the vast land--make a trip to visit the tombs of their ancestors to clean the gravesites, pray to their ancestors, and make ritual offerings such as flowers, food dishes or burning joss sticks and joss papers, showing the reference Chinese people have towards their ancestors. Other popular thing to do during Ching Ming is to fly kites in the shapes of animals or characters from Chinese opera.
The Bloemencorso Bollenstreek is an annual festive flower parade held every mid April in the Netherlands, showcasing colourful floats decorated with tulips and other locally-grown flowers.
