More often than not, the bride decides on what her entourage will wear on her wedding day with careful consideration for the event's theme and color palette. Bridesmaids are normally asked to have their dresses especially tailored for the big day. But for practical bride Joy Mica Cañete, such was not the case. Asking her bridal party to come in frilly gowns wasn't in the cards for Joy. Instead, she wanted her bridesmaids (one of them being Miss World 2013 Megan Young) to look sharp yet feel comfortable at her wedding–in all-white suits, no less!
In her Instagram, Joy revealed that she did not shoulder the cost of her bridesmaids' outfits and only requested for them to wear a white suit as their guide. "Wala kaming ginastos sa suot ng squad ko. I asked them if they can provide their own attire. Nagbigay lang ako ng peg na gusto ko," she captions her post. "Kanya-kanyang hanap na ng design kasi mas [okay] ako kung saan sila komportable and para lumabas din yung kanya-kanya nilang personality."
Ever the chill bride, Joy's decision to leave the rest of the details to her bridesmaids turned out to be a wise one. Their photos from the wedding have a cool and modern vibe, and her bridesmaids went home wearing power suits that they can still re-wear to the office or to another formal event. Now that's what we call a win-win!
