7 Local Ready-To-Wear Dresses for the Romantic Bride!

Graceful, sophisticated, and wearable–this was the vision of local designer Julianne Syjuco when she was conceptualizing her first ever Ready-to-Wear bridal gown collection more than three years ago. Now, her capsule collection is finally ready for brides to enjoy! As an ode to the classic romantic wedding gown, Julianne named this collection “Birds of Paradise.” So you can expect crystals, feathers, and pearls generously sprinkled on each dress, with dainty accents from lace she handpicked herself. And with only one to two pieces produced per style, choosing one of these RTW dresses will actually feel almost like wearing a custom gown made specially for you! See for yourself! You might just be an Atelier Julianne Syjuco bride.

This Couple Went All Out Filipiniana on Their Wedding Day!

My heart swells with pride whenever I see couples incorporate traditional Filipino elements in their wedding. Merv and Kit showed their love and appreciation for our local culture through the attire they chose for their big day. The groom looked handsome in his barong tagalog, while the bride was absolutely radiant in her classic white terno. The bridesmaids, on the other hand, wore a modern representation of the baro’t-saya–blouses without collars and vibrant aqua skirts for a pop of color. Beautiful, aren’t they? And in true Filipino fashion, the bride even rode a jeepney to go to the church! See it for yourself as you scroll through these photos by Brilliant Bum Photography.

A Sunny Tropical City Wedding Filled With So Much Love

It was nothing but blue skies and sunshine on Kid and Raf’s wedding day–their second wedding, having already married in a civil ceremony a few years earlier. That first ceremony, to their dismay, was far from dry and sunny as rain poured down on their yacht wedding. On this second (religious) wedding day, bride Raf likes to think that blessings came from above when the weather came through to match their bright and happy styling. We love that the reception venue, a lake house in Singapore, made the wedding feel tropical and easy despite being held in a city. Red, orange, gold, soft beige tones, and tropical greens came together in their clothing, invitations, and floral styling. It was a tropical dream setting that could only be a perfectly timed blessing! Scroll through this set by Superpanda Presents.

A Filipiniana Wedding Overflowing With Personality

Ram and Sai’s wedding was an all-white Filipiniana affair bubbling over with personality. The bride wore a decadent beaded Baro’t Saya wedding gown while the groom donned a classic off-white Barong Tagalog. They were not the only ones in soft hues of white, as their bridesmaids and groomsmen dressed in white dresses and Barong Tagalog, too. Wide-brimmed and fedora hats added texture to their outfits and made for fun props during group photo sessions as well. We love Filipiniana weddings because they are both a nod to tradition and a chance to keep our culture alive in modern times. While Ram and Sai’s couple portraits carry the dignity and romance of our national costume, you can’t miss the fun in their youthful smiles and in the little elements that brought life to the wedding preparations either. The wedding was a fiesta in every sense of the word and we are totally here for it! Check out the shots of Amady Manila.
