Wedding Talk: Veejay Floresca (and a quick glimpse of his new Madore collection)

Veejay Floresca is one of the most sought-after bridal designers in the Philippines and is quite known for her signature “frou frou” touch. When I chose her to create a custom designed gown for our wedding, my friends were surprised as her looks are usually romantic, feminine, and ethereal (ie three words you won’t particularly use to describe my personality).
So why Veejay? 
Well, she’s a really awesome designer and her talent goes beyond bridalwear. I’ve always been a fan – from when she joined a lingerie design competition sponsored by my college org to her Project Runway Philippines stint to her various international fashion week featured collections. Currently based in San Francisco finishing her MFA in Fashion Design, Veejay does everything with the help of her equally talented team in Manila (Ms Annie, Bryan, Kylie).

She’s a dream to work with and designer-client rapport is important to me. She’s listened to what I wanted without sacrificing her design aesthetic so it was a pretty good collaboration. I’m very happy with the final result and I can’t wait to wear my dress! 
The cherry on top? Her extremely happy disposition in life is so infectious, you’d feel like you’ve been bitten by a bug of positivity.
Now a couple of years ago, Veejay launched Madore, his version of “lower priced luxury” line (think White by Vera Wang or Bliss by Monique Lhuillier). Unlike other bridal brands, they sell the gowns Ready-To-Order which means each frock is tailored perfectly to each bride. Clients can choose a design and his team would create a new gown based on their personal measurements, colour and neckline preferences.
He’s just launched his third Madore collection and as always, the dresses are absolutely covetable. You can zoom in on the images to view the impeccably crafted details and check out how affordable these dresses are on the website.

    I’ve had a couple of events at Chicago Wedding Venues. The only thing that would have made these guys better would have been better communication in the earlier planning stages, but it all worked out great in the end.
