GREAT DRESSES DON’T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE!

MEGAN YOUNG’S LITTLE WHITE WEDDING DRESS COST LESS THAN P4,000

What news! Miss World 2013 titleholder Megan Young and actor Mikael Daez had not one but two weddings! The first was a quiet ceremony on a hilltop church in Batangas. That was on January 10th, and the second wedding followed two weeks later. The second was a more public event, boho style, with many more guests, friends, and family members.
 
Once photos were released of the first, private wedding, Megan Young looked absolutely stunning in a silk off-shoulder dress. Her dress featured simple but aesthetic details like an asymmetrical wrap skirt and puffy sleeves. It’s a dress she can re-wear in the future and an affordable dress at that! At just under P4,000, Megan’s dress will afford timeless memories of her wedding and serve as a comfortable and beautiful dress she can wear on many formal occasions.

THE THREE FACTORS OF THE PERFECT WEDDING DRESS – WHY MEGAN YOUNG’S DRESS WORKED

What’s the goal of a bride’s wedding dress? To help her look and feel beautiful. It’s to have a dress that helps the bride look stunning and gorgeous.
 
What’s the goal of wedding dress shopping? It’s finding the perfect dress that makes the bride look and feel beautiful.
 
It’s also about being unique. It’s about wearing a dress NO ONE else has or is wearing at any of the other weddings that season.
 
So what factors do brides-to-be need to consider when picking the perfect wedding dress? It comes down to three factors:

  • Style.
  • Colour.
  • Size.
 
If a bride can find the perfect-styled dress in the right colour and the exact ideal size for her body type, that is the key to the perfect wedding dress.
 
At Villoni, we help our customers find the wedding dress that will help them look and feel great! We make sure our brides-to-be are getting a dress that is the perfect style for them. We help them get into a dress that is the exact right colour (remember, even if a bride goes with the traditional white, there are lots of shades of white). And last but not least, we help brides-to-be choose a dress in the perfect size (and yes, we do work with custom, unique sizes).

A TRULY ROYAL WEDDING

PRINCESS BEATRICE WEARS BEAUTIFUL HAND-ME-DOWN WEDDING DRESS AND DAZZLING TIARA FROM QUEEN ELIZABETH

In a moment that touched the heartstrings of millions of Commonwealth folks across the world, Princess Beatrice wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi while wearing a hand-me-down wedding dress and tiara from none other than Queen Elizabeth herself!
 
Queen Elizabeth is Princess Beatrice’s grandmother, and sources say their close relationship since Princess Beatrice’s childhood may be what prompted Queen Elizabeth to loan such priceless family heirlooms to her granddaughter.
 
The wedding ceremony was private, kept to only about 20 close family members and friends (Queen Elizabeth included!) And while the wedding itself was private, the photographs of Princess Beatrice in the iconic bridal dress and tiara soon became internationally circulated.

A FORMAL DRESS AND A ONE-OF-A-KIND TIARA, WHY THESE ITEMS ARE SO SPECIAL

Besides being exquisite and stunning items that most women would love the chance to try on, there is a historical significance behind the Princess’s evening garb. The dress is a vintage ivory Peau de Soie taffeta dress made by world-renowned dress maker Norman Hartnell. Hartnell is the same designer who crafted Queen Elizabeth’s 1947 wedding gown when the Queen married Prince Phillip more than 70 years ago!
 
As for the tiara, not only was the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara worn by Queen Elizabeth on her wedding day, but the tiara was again worn by Princess Anne on her wedding day in 1973!

A ROYAL WEDDING… DESPITE IT ALL

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi had initially planned their wedding for May 29th. But due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the couple had to reschedule. The ceremony itself observed social distancing rules in accordance with government guidelines, with each participant being especially careful considering the presence of the Queen. But despite it all, the couple was wed in glamor and royal decor, with the Peau de Soie taffeta dress and the Queen Mary Fringe Tiara being the clear eye-catchers of the momentous day.
