Make no mistake—not all celebrities go the lavish route when dressing for their nuptials. We've seen decadent, jaw-droppingly ornate gowns like the Michael Cinco creations donned by Marian Rivera and Dra. Vicki Belo for their fairytale weddings, but, rest assured, there's certainly an exciting range of simpler dresses to choose from. For example, model and entrepreneur Jess Wilson recently tied the knot in a modern Filipiniana mini dress, while Bianca King wed in a tiered polka dot frock, right from the comfort of her own living room! 


If you're planning to keep it simple for your walk down the aisle, take inspiration from these 10 stars. They're proof that your wedding should adjust to your needs, personality, and taste—not the other way around. Take a look! 

10 minimalist and simple wedding gowns worn by Filipina celebrities

1. Jess Wilson

This is one of the loveliest wedding dresses we've seen in recent memory. The terno-inspired Vania Romoff creation busts two myths: 1) that celebrity bridal gowns need a train spanning the length of a cathedral, and 2) that short bridal gowns are underwhelming. Beautifully layered callado embroidery makes the gown feminine and dainty, while the distinctive butterfly sleeves lend it prestige.

2. Megan Young

Famously a practical bride, Miss World 2013 Megan Young wore three simple white frocks over the course of her wedding festivities. Each dress was a sister to the others in both design and sensibility, which is a reflection of the clarity of Megan's vision for her nuptials. 

For her wedding ceremony, she wore a delicate long-sleeved sheer gown by Patricia Santos


Megan's reception dress was made by Boom Sason, and it featured a sleek fit balanced out with a cascading, asymmetrical skirt. 

During their intimate, 10-guest ceremony in Caleruega, Megan donned asymmetrical dress, but this time, it was an off-the-rack piece from the local brand Zoo Label

3. Alex Gonzaga 

Alex Gonzaga's Rajo Laurel gown may have been devoid of conventional beadwork and embroidery, but it was a fashion-forward stunner in every way. With its tea-length skirt and cotton candy-shaped puff sleeves, this gown merged everything we love about modern and vintage aesthetics and nicely tied it all together with a bow. 


4. Mica Javier 

Need a peg for a lacy gown with a lightweight, stripped-down look? Mica Javier's Galia Lahav dress is just the one. It was the perfect pick for a beachside wedding—the texture's softly feminine, while the silhouette was made to be flow with the sea breeze. No petticoats or heavy beading, just thoughtful shapes and sweet details. 


5.  Sarah Lahbati

To her civil ceremony, Sarah Lahbati donned a gauzy Mark Bumgarner dress that the designer reportedly finished in just one day! The tea-length A-line dress featured a classic bardot neckline and a finely pleated skirt—a snowy frock for a lovely bride! 


6. Kimi Juan-Caja

Travel blogger Kimi Juan-Caja is proof that a department store dress can look just as gorgeous as a custom-made designer gown. Once you decide on a flattering cut for your figure—in Kimi's case, a floor-length column gown did the trickall you'll have to do is hunt for one off the racks. So pretty! 


7. Jessy Mendiola

For her dreamy wedding frock, Jessy Mendiola tapped Patricia Santos, who also made Megan's gown. Jessy's dress featured a square neckline, a scoop back, and a flouncy pleated skirt. In it, she looked absolutely flawless. 

8. Maxene Magalona

To her Boracay wedding, Maxene Magalona wore a strapless Vera Wang column gown with a sweetheart neckline and plunging back. Familiar? It's almost identical to the dress worn by Ariana Grande on her wedding day! 


9. Camille Co

Did you know that Camille Co actually tied the knot in a civil ceremony before her grand Italy wedding? She did so in this girly, sophisticated cape-shouldered dress, which she paired with kitten-heeled Dior slingbacks. Style-wise, Camille never misses a beat! 


10. Bianca King

Never imagined yourself waltzing down the aisle in a poufy, true white gown? Take up Bianca King's suggestion—throw convention out the window, and trade it all for comfort and what feels right for you. If tiers and polka dots are your thing, go for it! Any dress can be a wedding dress. The rules are yours to make.
