BN Bridal: Veluz Reyes – RTW 2013 & The “Veluz Bride”




Veluz Reyes is a designer we’ve been obsessing with for a while. Every time we post pictures of her gowns on social media, we get comments like “Wow!”, “Yum”, and smileys with hearts in their eyes. We promise that after you see this post, you’ll also be a fan 😉 Veluz started her line in 1998, with only custom made designs in her home country Philippines. After years of making the most memorable bridal dresses, and thousands of inquiries, she finally released her 1st Ready To Wear line this March, 2013.

Enjoy her 1st official bridal collection and photos of real Veluz brides!

    boring collection…*yawns*…now walking away

      August 20, 2013 at 12:53 pm

      Your soul must be asleep and your sense of appreciation of
      beauty non existent for you to call this boring. Even dem Vera
      Wang, Monique Lhulier and Amsale can’t hold a candle to this. You
      want boring, go look at the latest collections of those 3. Mschew.
      BN please, please showcase Ellis Bridals, I swear you will fall in
      love with the dresses

    I LOVE Veluz Reyes. In my opinion, her ready to wear line isn’t as spectacular as her custom made dresses. I’ve saved sooo many pictures to pass on to my dream dressmaker – Liz John-Black of Bridely (no, I wasn’t paid for the plug-in, I just love Bridely like that). Veluz’s dresses are so beautiful and intricately made, they are a real labour of love. Since I cant afford her, I’ll let her inspire my dress.

    • Sephora

      August 21, 2013 at 12:21 am

      Thank you so much for mentioning Liz! I’m loving the dresses on her website. Does she design the dresses?

    • Lilo

      August 21, 2013 at 6:08 pm

      She isnt actually that pricey…I got a quote for one of the RTW dresses above and it was $3200 which is not so bad.

    • Zizie

      August 22, 2013 at 7:45 pm

      so $3200 x N160 isn’t pricy, Oga o!

    liked most of the dresses. the heavy laces on some though,
    not so much. nice collection, captures what a bride should be.
    thumbs up. meanwhile, how can i get one?

    Veluz is my Fav Wedding Dress Designer of all Time. Was wondering when her stuff will ever appear on BN. Vera Wang is So overrated. This lady is the business. She is based in Manila in Philippines – i been following her for 3 year, I cant wait for someday when i place my order.

    I would love to be a Veluz bride, Wow dresses, love them…

  22. Sephora

    August 20, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    I’m loving the heavy lace!! I would combine the lace with Kosiba’s figure enhancing styles to get my perfect dress.

  23. Wanluv

    August 21, 2013 at 6:53 am

    I’ve been drooling over Veluz’s dresses now since I stumbled upon them on a blog a few years ago… Anyone who cannot appreciate these intricate works of art need their eyes examined… I hope to one day be a Veluz bride!!! I would be nice to see a Veluz dress on a black skinned girl though. My favourite dress from the collection is the first one you posted.

    I’ve been obsessing over Veluz for quite some time now. I’ll definitely be keeping her in mind for my wedding. Does anybody have an idea of what her price range looks like?

  25. wow, gorgeous, gorgeous.

  26. Louda

    August 21, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Every single piece is so lovely. I can model these gowns very well. I wanna be a veluz bride though.

  27. Nnenna

    August 21, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! Such flawless gowns! The embroidery is crazyyyyy! You can tell that a lot of time and effort is put into every detail of the dresses! I’ve never heard of her! These are such exquisite gowns! Love the lace details! Goodness! I’m just like WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! My new fave wedding designer! I have to agree with an above poster that Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier are kinda overrated right now! LOVE THESE GOWNSSSSSS!!!
