Planning a wedding is a gargantuan task with many details that need to be ironed out. As a bride-to-be, one of the first things you need to decide on is your wedding gown. But with a sea of designers and off-the-rack options out there, this mission can seem like a daunting task. To help you out, we curated a list of bridal gowns according to style, along with local designers for you to choose from.

1. Filipiniana

Jojie Lloren envisions the modern bride in contemporary iterations of the old Filipiniana. From piña to chiffon, to tulle and lace, he created a collection that features tweaked versions of the Barong Tagalog, the terno, and the baro't saya. His pieces merge our traditional costumes with western bridal designs, perfect for the modern bride looking for a frock with a nod to her heritage.

2. Bold and Printed

Joey Samson's collection is inspired by William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, which focuses on the disruption of the norm. So if you're a bride who's out to deviate from the dictates of society, Joey has you covered. He creatively juxtaposes contrasting elements like masculine versus feminine, tailored versus soft and frilly, and stark versus textured. This results in a collection featuring bold printed gowns, colored frocks, and caped suit dresses meant for anti-brides.

3. Statement Details

Mak Tumang was inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe’s paintings of enlarged flowers, which led him to create huge blooms on his bridal gowns. His frocks are made of multiple layers of ruffled ombre fabric, white and pink tulle, weaved silk, leaf embroidery, feathers, and crystals. If you're a bride looking for a standout gown, then a Mak Tumang creation is for you!
