3 places in Jakarta renting and designing wedding dresses.

A Western-style wedding is often perceived as simpler than traditional Eastern weddings. Those who plan to adopt Western-style wedding for their big day can get their dresses and suits at these places.

1. Billy Tjong
Billy Tjong’s works are known to have touches of elegance and femininity. In his bridal line, the designer provides custom-made and ready stock dresses, but either way, he advises his customers to contact him three to 12 months prior to the ceremony.

After the first meeting, the designer would begin to draw sketches, select the main and supporting materials, make the pattern and design the mock-up version of the dress on blacu fabric (fabric with rough fibers). Customers can also look for fabrics along with the designer.

Billy does not strictly limit how many fittings for his customers are required, but it usually takes one to five times, depending on their needs. Billy often receives requests to design a dress that highlights a certain body shape. Especially for mermaid style, a-line and ball gown wedding dresses. Prices for Billy’s wedding dresses depend on the materials.

Founded in 1968, Atham Tailor has often catered to the needs of renowned Indonesian figures for bespoke suits, but when it comes to wedding suits, the groom-to-be should approach the tailor three months before the ceremony.

The process usually takes one to two months, as they want the groom to have his customized suit a month before the wedding day. Should the groom gain weight, around 5 to 6 kilograms, no big adjustment is needed.

Aside keep in touch with their customers, Don Tjong as the designer would also like to build relations with them. Don also acts as a stylist, as he often gives out advice regarding the groom's shoes or tie. His suggestions extend to the family as well, especially in selecting the right suit to support the pair’s style.
