Wedding Gown Inspiration

Simplicity is the keynote of all true form of elegance. - Coco Chanel

One thing is for sure. I don't want to shed half of our wedding budget for a dress that I will wear for only 5 hours or so.


I don't want a puffy wedding gown. And Lee don't want to see me wearing that kind of dress too. haha! I'm petite so a puffy gown is a bit overwhelming for me.

We went to some shops and look into their designs and gowns. But ALMOST every gown has a puffy skirt. Yun ata uso ngayon?

On our last stop, I saw this simple wedding dress. It was a love at first sight. And it is not puffy! It's so simple that some will even think it's just an evening dress. But the "this-is-it" feeling was really there. So I try it on. And it looooooks so gooooooood on me that when Lee saw me wearing it with a matching veil(haha!), he became teary-eyed. Drama di ba? laughing

Anyway, Lee also tried some of their suit and decided that we will also get his suit from that shop. So the mananahi took our measurements, discussed some details then we pay the downpayment required.

We went home happy that we accomplished something on that day. Another thing ticked off from our to-do list. happy

Anyway, here's the inspiration:

Kinda similar to my wedding dress.

And oh! It's not white. winking


  1. Hi Yhen,
    I love your wedding gown! I know you might wondering who am I, I just came across your blog as Ive tried finding Our Lady of Fatima Parish Church's requirements for wedding. I loved to get married there but would like to know if they will allow tube style wedding dress just like what you have posted. Hope to hear your feedback, thanks!

    1. Hi! Yes. It is allowed as long as it's not super daring. Actualy, my wedding giwn has a sweetheart neckline. Goodluck and happy preps! :)

  2. Thanks a lot! do you have any idea how much is the church fee? our reception will be in Island Cove:-)

    1. If i remember it right, it's 5000pesos. Reservation fee is 500php which is deductible naman. Ang included lang sa fee are red carpet, flower stands and nuptial candles :) you have to undergo seminar din sa church. 1st AND 2nd sat of the month. :) yung door din sa church is open. You can ask them to put curtains para sa entrance mo may effect pa din, addtl 500pesos for that. :)

  3. Wow thank you for all the info Yhen! My fiancé is from Cavite City pero usually tayo lang mga girls ang nag aayos ng wedding. Thanks ulit!
