Wedding Gowns in Divisoria


Since I had my entourage gowns sewn in Divisoria I had the chance to chat with the owner of the shop I got when I picked up the gowns. He was doing some bead work on a gown and shared quite a bit about their business. He said that prior to having the shop he did odd jobs (i.e. driver/kargador) and that sewing was actually much easier and would earn you more money.

He also shared that aside from walk-ins they get a lot of orders from designers (take note of this!). They just get the design and have this done in their factory located at the outskirts of Metro Manila. Here's a short video I took while I was in Divisoria (I just used my phone), in case you haven't gone there.



Take note though that Divisoria shops do not design wedding gowns. There are two ways you can get your gown from Divi:

1. Buy ready made. There are so many different designs to choose from and they usually have it in different sizes. You can also have it adjusted at the shop, but you will have to go back for it a few days after.

2. Have it custom made. You can choose a design from the multitude of catalogs they have in the shop or bring a copy of the design you want to have done. They will give you advise on what kind of cloth to use or you can request.

Cost: PhP3,500 and up (ready made/custom made)

  19. BEWARE of MAYETTE BUSTAMANTE (Motif and Style Cluster mall 2nd floor...if you don't want to e stressed before your wedding day, DON't get her!!
    up to 2 days before the wedding, wala pa syang napapakitang wedding gown. And entourage gowns still have a lot of alterations.
    Try to search her name on Google, all the NEGATIVE feedbacks will show, posted by like me, HER VICTIMS!!

  23. Hi!! just wanna share you my experience while hunting for my gown maker in divisoria...At first, kala ko ok ung boutique na pinag pagawaan namin (jan 2011, sabi sakiin ng may- ari pili daw ako ng design and they will make the same gown for me...So I trusted what they say..I choose a design and give my trust to them..after giving down naging masungit na ung may ari, pag may tinatanong ako masungit...After 3weeks Iwas so excited to see my gown just to be diappointed dahil muka itong KURTINA... Imagine..I am very much willing to give additional payments for the design I really want tapos ganon lang? At that instance, I found ate Vangie Suva...Her boutique name is Shaznay Drygoods,sa una di un kasing laki at kasing dami ng mga designs dun sa dating pnagtahian ko... But i had my gown sewed by her..Its worth it...Buti nalang nakilala namin xa at the most critical time.. kala ko masisira na ung pangarap ko mkapagsuot ng magandang wedding gown..My wedding will be on March 25 and I am on my way pero di halata sa gown...try her...here's her no. 09063326338... Sulit ung bayad at nakatulog na ko ng mahimbing...

  32. Hi!!..I need an advice po medyo na sstressed out po ako sa mag-isa kung paglalakad sa kasal ko sa January.Nagpagawa po ako sa Divisoria ng Wed Dress ko kay Ms. Vangie Suva 3 weeks ago at nagdown po ako ng 2K from the amount of 13K na gown ko at bumalik po ako dito manila para po sana sa first fitting ko sa 10th pero wla pa pong nauumpisahan pla so I grab the opportunity to make changes to my gown.And we just finalized it yesterday and the new prize of my gown was 18K na pero pinag-aadd niya po ako ng 7K pra na daw po masimulan.Do i have to give an additional eventhough dipa po nasisimulan ang gown ko ang dahilan niya 2roll na tel a daw ang kailangan niyang bilhin pra sa gown ko.Medyo nag-aalangan po kasi ako kung mgddown ulit. mag-isa ako na nakikipag-usap sa kanya na mag-isa at pumupunta sa shop niya...I just need po some advice sa mga nkakakilala kay Ms. Vangie.Thankz.

  33. ate na ikakasal sa january mag ingat ka kay vangie..... pag ganyang hindi pa nasisimulan bara bara na naman ang gagawin nya..... ganon din ginawa nya sa aken.... pagkakita ko ng gown ko mukhang kurtina.... saka kunwari lang na suskatan ka nyan pero ang totoo maghahanap lang yan ng gown na ready made na kasize mo.... At ang tela mumurahin.... kaya wag ka magtiwala dyan manloloko yan... sayang pera mo sa kanya....
