You know how brides in your favorite rom-com movies try on so many designer wedding dresses for rent until they find the right one? The Bridefolio tries to replicate the same experience but online! Here are four reasons why you should totally check them out!
When you explore the limited rental market for bridal gowns here in the Philippines, you’ll discover that the dresses are not from designer brands or if they are, the pieces are most likely to be pre-loved. The Bridefolio is different from other online rental boutiques because they officially partner with renowned local designers with the goal of making original pieces also available for women who want to rent. They are indeed the partners in this big step in the bridal industry according to the brand. Some local designers who’ve come onboard are Vania Romoff, Lulu Tan Gan, and Julianne Syjuco, to name a few.
If you’re worried that a rental dress won’t fit you well, know that the boutique will do minor alterations on your chosen dress to fit your figure. Bridefolio has a team of experienced stylists who will be available for consultation every time a bride books an appointment. There are also tailors available to customize each gown depending on the fit needed.
Note: For the safety of everyone during the ongoing pandemic, they are doing virtual viewings and home fittings for the meantime. Home fittings come with an online appointment with their experienced stylist partners.
