ECO INDIE REBELS OF THE WEDDING INDUSTRY
We are here to inspire you to make the eco-conscious choice in your wedding gown shopping experience. We like the unconventional, and we have built a company that respects your values. Our story is for people and for the environment.
Our wedding outfits are meticulously handmade by a group of awesome folks. You can be certain that our outfits are unique, and made only with the finest natural materials. We try our best to source fabrics that are gentle to your skin as well as to the environment. We use blends of pineapple leaf fiber and the finest spun Mulberry silk or organic cotton and banana fibers. As much as we can, we only work with either recycled synthetic materials or organic materials.
Our outfits are ethically-made. We support independent bridal designers who are dreaming to make it big in the bridal scene. You also support Filipino entrepreneurs who are struggling to maintain their home towns’ traditional weaving and embroidery industries. Our mission is to support small business through economic empowerment with your budget in mind, and to achieve that, we needed to rebel against the norms of the wedding industry.
We passionately love weddings, and just love celebrating love and happiness.
Wedding planning should not be stressful. It is a celebration of love and the marriage of two families. We are here to make sure that the wedding dress shopping experience is as #stressfree as possible. How do we do that?
- From easy communication, as easy as texting pretty much any time, about well… anything wedding related (or not). We love making friends.
- Found a dress on our site and would like to try out? Bridal salons are not your thing? Tired of wedding consultants and the traditional synthetically-made stuff? We ship the dresses you’d like to try-on directly to your home. Try them on with family and friends – in the way you want to celebrate!
- You have 7 days to try it on. During the day, at night, with your hair down, with your hair up, with your girl friends, with your future in-laws. Just enjoy.
- When you are ready or after 7 days, just pack it all up. Attach the return shipping label, and drop it off at your nearest UPS location.

We are a technical bunch and started the business with a passion for design and fabrics. We offer you well-rounded knowledge on the wedding industry, and we share with you all that we know. We aim to keep you as informed as possible throughout your dress shopping experience.
We believe that each person is unique, we are open to ideas, customizations and just sharing stories.
Once you purchase from Silviyana, you are automatically part of our family.
