- What is the price range of your wedding gowns and do you offer entourage packages?
Starting price for a Maureen Reeca Cruz Custom-made bridal gown is Php 50,000 and for Ready to wear (RTW) bridal gown is Php 30,000. However the actual rate would depend on the design style, amount of work (bead work or embroidery), laces (local or from abroad). For overseas brides shipping, taxes and other charges are not included. Many of my overseas brides get their gowns picked up by their Filipino relatives but if you choose we would be happy to send them through courier.
We used to offer Entourage Packages but not any more, now our work is exclusively focused on bridal gowns.
- How much lead time do you need for delivery?
Custom made bridal gown needs a lead time of 8 months. This would give ample time for the bride to visit the designer and for the designer to workout a perfect gown. Sooner than 8 months is considered a rush order and picking such orders will depend on our ongoing workload. Lot of our brides book 1 year in advance.
