Weddings are milestones that deserve to be celebrated in style, but that doesn’t mean you have to shell out tons of cash to do so. There’s a number of RTW dresses and even off-the-rack finds in the market that are as stunning as they are budget-friendly. Plus, you get to save time you would have otherwise spent on fittings for a bespoke wedding dress! Ahead, here are five breathtaking gowns for the practical bride:
ZOO Palmira Dress
Palmira Dress in White Linen, P5490, ZOO, zoo.com.ph
In case you missed it, two-piece bridal looks are a thing, and they come in a wide variety of styles to suit any aesthetic. If you happen to fall under the categories of “summery,” “rustic,” or “dainty,” then consider this fresh white linen set from ZOO. Featuring puff sleeves, a lace-up back, and a bodice with boning, the dress is fully lined to ensure no “see-through” moments.
ZOO Esmeralda Dress

Another piece from local brand ZOO is this luxurious silk dress with an asymmetric neckline and a long, billowy puff sleeve that’s giving us dreamy, romantic vibes. The full-length design features a thigh high slit for those who are keen on exposing some skin, as well as a detachable sash for those who want to further accentuate their figure! Plus, it’s rendered in the faintest nude color that veers away from traditional bridal ivory!
Tantease Simone Dress

Marked by a flattering halter neckline that shows off your shoulders, the clean-cut crepe dress also features subtle shirring details on the bodice for a feminine touch. The empire waist also makes you look taller!
