These local designers have gorgeous off-the-rack options for your last-minute needs!

There comes a time when you reach an age where weddings become the common occasion, rather than the usual birthday dinners and random GNOs. And trust us, it comes sooner than you think, and when it does, it’s best to be prepared with a selection of dresses to rely on. Being a wedding guest can be stressful enough (obviously not more so than being the bride, but still), so the dress dilemma should be the least of your worries. Keep in mind that it’s a little challenging to find a wedding guest dress because it’s more formal than what you can usually find at the mall, so it’s good to know what’s out there now.  

We’ve rounded up a few Filipino designers who have a selection of ready-to-wear dresses that you can wear to weddings. Get them now to build a good collection or take a mental note for when the time you need them comes.

Where to get chic RTW gowns for your next wedding guest outfit:

1. Debbie Co 

If you’re unsure of what style of dress to get and are looking for options, take a trip to Atelier Debbie Co. To call her selection wide-ranging is an understatement, as she has a vibrant collection of dresses in endless styles. We’re in love with the way she plays with textures, prints, and colors that make her formal gowns feel fun—like a straight-cut pair of separates that’s designed with three-dimensional lace or a floor-length gown that sees a layer of sheer floral textile atop a patterned blue base.

2. Bumgarner Studios

If you keep up with the beauty pageant world, you’ve likely seen one of Mark Bumgarner’s elaborate creations. Famed for his couture gowns, he lends his expertise to his ready-to-wear line, Bumgarner Studios. His Heritage Collection is a particular favorite of ours, and it’s not just because Philippine-inspired weddings are very popular right now. The pieces in this line are touching odes to Filipino culture that feel special in the way they’re incorporated into modern, streamlined silhouettes.

3. Vania Romoff

A name that’s beloved in the wedding community for her bridal creations, Vania Romoff also has a selection of ready-to-wear pieces for wedding guesting and other formal affairs. If your personal style leans towards a more romantic sense, see her pieces that approach it with a more modern perspective. We especially love her draped bow blouses, which are incredibly versatile in that they can be paired with either one of the designer’s skirts or something you already have in your closet.

4. Rajo Laurel

If you fancy yourself a minimalist, you have to see Rajo Laurel’s selection of ready-to-wear gowns. His dresses are straightforward in design, focusing more on soft textiles and flowing silhouettes rather than embellishments. Take a look at the Jayde or the Passionfruit Gown, which marry a sense of feminine etherealness with clean sophistication. They will definitely see many celebrations and stand the test of time.

5. Charina Sarte

For weddings set at the beach, there’s one designer you can always rely on. Charina Sarte is celebrated for her sunny, vibrant, and free-spirited sense of style that she expresses in her tropics-friendly creations. Find yourself in a long, tiered dress done in leaf-patterned cotton or something of a more romantic sensibility with softly-puffed sleeves and charming rose prints.
