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!”
A few months ago, I launched my Fleur Collection, a collection of Ready to Wear wedding gowns and was so happy to see a couple of my designs featured in the latest issue Inspirations Magazine! It’s available in bookstores and magazine stands nationwide.
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!

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.
This took much much longer than expected but finally my new RTW Bridal Collection is out! My most romantic collection just yet with my distinctively clean polished aesthetic. Here you will be seeing a medley of beautiful florals, ultra feminine lace and soft tulle skirts.
It’s no wonder Missy is a such a sweet thoughtful person, her family is so warm and welcoming! And I had the great pleasure meeting her mom, her MOH/ sister Marla (ahem even the new boyfriend)😉 Of course I made their gowns too😉
Each fitting was always filled with new stories! It was nice to have this amazing connection with their family. They’re the type of family anyone would be lucky to be a part of, absolutely just about anybody can tell that they have a quirky yet loving relationship.
Missy is wearing a design from my RTW Collection. We were actually in the process of completing this gown when Missy came in for an appointment. Initially she was describing the type of gown that she wanted and I just happened to be working on a gown that may just fit her vision. It was the first wedding gown she ever fitted and it really was just meant to be for her. She looked stunning, exactly how a blushing bride should radiate. =)

This beautiful bride is actually wearing a bridal gown from my Ready to Wear Bridal Collection. =) I do have some gowns posted in here though a lot of the gowns are actually sold before I even have the chance to post the photos. So if you’re one of those brides who want to know instantly (like right now!) how amazing you can look like on your wedding day, drop by and fit a few of my gowns. You’ll never know, it may just be a perfect fit!
Some brides ask how do we do it? We can alter the gown to fit your body like a glove. And NO I do not use those adjustable corset back with adjustable string, which is typical of rented gowns. I’m more than willing to open up the gown and make the necessary adjustments for you.
Others ask if I repeat the designs, actually I don’t. Each RTW wedding gown is made only once in the same material, lace and design. Even if it’s an RTW gown, it’s YOUR wedding gown and it should still be unique. =)
