The Wong For You

Kevin and Trish’s wedding hashtag #thewongforyou was so memorable and catchy, I just has to use it as a blog title. Trish, a preschool teacher from Sydney, Australia, sent me an email way back in September 2014 (cannot believe it is 2016 already!). She described her dream wedding gown to be “simple, elegant, refreshing.” After a few dozen emails later and just two fittings we fast forward to their wedding day on December 12, 2015. Out with the frou-frou, pouffy or bold. Trish wanted easy and carefree, just how she is when she’s smiling, natural never contrived (I’m sure you can tell by her pictures).

Rtw Wedding Gown Manila Philippines

Mia is one of my blushing brides who availed the Comprehensive Package with Glass Garden Events Venue. Instead of opting to have a custom-made gown that’s included in the package, she opted for one of my ready to wear gowns. I never actually had a chance to shoot or post this gown online because it was swept away before I even had a chance to. Surprisingly this happens a lot, there are times the dress is only halfway through and a bride just connects with it instantly. It’s like knowing instinctively “this is it!”

Bride and Breakfast Feature: Camille Garcia RTW Fleur Collection

When I found out that my RTW Wedding Gowns from my Fleur Collection were featured at Bride and Breakfast, of course I was beyond ecstatic! I really wanted Filipino Women to be more open minded about unconventional styles and to see wedding gowns in a refreshing perspective. Filipino women tend to stick to the trends especially with what they see with celebrities and with their friends’ weddings, it’s time to slip away from the cookie cutter mold, to be unique and to shine in your own light.

This collection is so diverse ranging from off-shoulder necklines to long sleeves, sheath to A-line silhouettes to address the needs of real women with different assets or even issues. Let’s face it, very few of us have the makings of Victoria’s Secret models and yet during our wedding day, we all dream to look fresh, elegant, beautiful and captivating. And why not?! It’s our wedding! What’s best about my RTW wedding dresses is that they are only made in the same design and materials once. Yep ONCE. I can’t imagine creating the same exact gown 10 or even 100 times simply in varying sizes.

This is my continuing ode to diversity, cheers!

Finding the “One”

Hansel and Kristine booked the Comprehensive Package at the Glass Garden Events Venue. The Comprehensive package came with the Bridal Gown (by yours truly of course!), Photo & Video, OTD Coordination, Lights among other wedding must-haves. Brides always ask, “what kind of gown is included?” Of course I always sketch a totally unique design for every new bride, I don’t use template or repeat the exact same thing twice even if the bride opted a Ready-to-wear wedding gown from my collection.
