Prior to launching her luxury bridal brand in 2008, Maturada was a professional TV host and MC who had also played the role of bridesmaid to many of her friends and relatives. Her attention to detail and keen eye for fashion made her popular among her friends, who sought her expertise on beauty, makeup and hair styling for their big day. While assisting them achieve their perfect look, she was inspired to create a complete beauty design service for the modern bride, starting with the perfect dress.
Maturada believes that a bride should wear the dress, not the other way around. Using this thought as her motivation as well as seeking inspiration from her clientele of brides-to-be, the designer creates luxurious dresses with one-of-a-kind details such as feathers, lace appliques and exquisite beading. Whether it is vintage or contemporary in style, voluminous or sculpted in shape, each gown is crafted keeping in mind the stylish modern bride seeking an extraordinary ensemble, with a hint of glamour and grandeur.
The entrepreneur believes that women should look their absolute best on their wedding day – from head-to-toe. This philosophy led to the creation of Bridesmaid’s signature service, ‘Beauty Rehearsal’. This exclusive service allows the bride to choose her makeup, hairstyle and accessories to create the perfect look. The aim of this service is to let the bride explore different looks and styling, and be completely prepared for her big day, leaving no room for chance or errors. “Instead of focusing on the dress alone, I believe that make-up and hair styling must go well together with the dress and most importantly, must fit with individual bride’s character to make her shine on the wedding day,” Maturada says.
Bridesmaid’s impeccable reputation as the capital’s most sought-after bridal house was further recognised when they were invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Honeymoon + Travel magazine to be a part of the “Wedding Destiny Project” last year. Spearheaded by TAT, the project was aimed at strengthening Thailand’s status as a wedding destination. Maturada and her team were chosen to dress nine celebrity couples in both Thai and Western attire, to wed in dream venues around the country. Bridesmaid considers their participation in the project as an important milestone in the company’s history.
As Bridesmaid celebrates their 10th anniversary this year, Maturada credits their inspiration, principles and a passion to providing world-class services that have always allowed them to be at the forefront of the bridal couture industry. She adds, “Being a bride’s best friend is the foundation of everything. As a friend, it is our commitment to make sure that she is the most modern, stylish, and chic bride ever.”
