Top 10 Philippines’ Best Wedding Couturiers

Once upon a time, it’s easier to pick up a list of wedding suppliers. Effortlessly. However, gone are the days when Fairy Godmother will come to the rescue to magically flick for a beautiful gown and makeover needs. Over the years, the wedding industry has grown to an empire which makes it more stressful to sort out which one fits the  style and budget of the couple’s big day.

Weddings are celebrated as one of the grandest in Filipino culture. There’s nothing more overwhelming and fascinating than planning a perfect union of two hearts in love.

While the journey to the altar will keep the lovebirds more than busy with wedding planning, some merely borderlines to being bridezilla or groomzilla, demanding stress over their own wedding. Here’s a tip, don’t overthink it, just let it be. Let your new beginnings usher in good vibes.

Here’s an impressive display of wedding gowns to inspire bride-to-be’s in choosing their own Fairy Godmother. Beyond catalogs, we trailed down best photographers in town for real brides in their custom-made wedding gowns.

We’ll kicked off the wedding month with Philippines’ Top Wedding Gown Designers. Here are the best of the best which I narrowed down to ten considering the abundance of established and up and coming Filipino Designers. Ergo, part deux soon!

A Mother’s Day Tribute


“But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”
