Masako Formals Private Label
Doing your homework pays off – literally. At Masako’s we’re constantly on the look out for exceptional wedding dresses and bridal designers. At the same time, we want every bride in Hawaii to feel that she can walk in our shop and have options.
Over the last year and a half, we have worked hard to find designers that meet our quality expectations, while offering more affordable prices. Why are these gowns less expensive than other designers? There are a few reasons. In some cases, as with the Masako Formals Exclusive label, we’ve cut out the middle man. In other cases, we’ve discovered new, up-and-coming designers before they’ve blown up. Plus, a few of our top designers have been making more of an effort to open up their price ranges.
With our Vintage Shop, rental wedding dress options, and now new selection of wedding dresses under $1,000 (and some way under), we hope every price point feels welcome at our shop. Aloha!
