10. Vanessa Matsunaga Sunga
Designer: John Herrera
This Brazilian-Japanese model experienced every bride's wedding nightmare. She saw her gown a week before the ceremony and it fell short of expectations. In her panic, designer friends offered her other options, but it was this John Herrera number that caught her attention. The flouncy skirt is shirred honeycomb organdy with a silk trim, but it's the elaborate top that captures the fantasy. Small circular panels of Mikado silk are laid on top of one another to capture a scales effect.

9. Rica Peralejo Bonifacio
Designer: Rajo Laurel
Mrs. Bonifacio's convertible wedding dress featured a unique cobweb overlay made with shredded silk jersey (for the Christian ceremony) to hide an intricately embellished strapless gown underneath. In keeping with her beach theme, the actress-host kept things laidback and simple, with only a beaded belt-emphasizing her tiny waist-as the major adornment. For the reception, Rica nixed the overlay to show off those bespoke details.

8. Andi Manzano Reyes
Designer: Jun Escario
This radio princess channels her inner royalty in this Grace Kelly-inspired wedding frock. The floaty drop-waist creation features a sweetheart neckline meticulously covered in gossamer and crystals with an embroidered long-sleeve overlay and exquisite lace trim that matched the hem and veil. It’s a very classic gown, with an equally traditional mantilla veil, befitting of Andi’s sweet personality.

7. Rissa Mananquil Trillo
Designer: Randy Ortiz
The acclaimed designer effectively captures this supermodel’s elegant style with this creamy princess-cut creation. The classic silhouette is amped up by the elaborate heart-shaped bodice covered with a metallic champagne Chantilly lace, floral appliques, and cutworks.

6. Iya Villania Arellano
Designer: Pepsi Herrera
The secret to this frothy outfit is that there's no lining, which makes it seem even lighter, swingier, and gorgeously appropriate for her laidback wedding. The spaghetti strap bodice clustered with flower appliques accentuates Iya’s athletic frame in all the right ways. We love the big surprise when she turns about: the deep back that ends in a big feminine bow.

5. Sunshine Cruz (formerly Sunshine Cruz Manhilot)
Designer: Eric Pineda
In an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer a month before their wedding in September 2000, Cesar Montano, Sunshine's then sweetheart, described the price of the gown to be "very expensive." There were, in fact, rumors that the strapless number cost half a million pesos. The princess-cut gown is made of duchess satin, with the hem and 20-foot train boasting most of the complexities: silk chording, beadwork, cutwork. The theme of the wedding was "sun" and Pineda made sure to add gorgeous matte-gold embroidery of radiant patterns. It's a very personal piece with a timeless appeal that lasted longer than the marriage.

4. Cheska Garcia Kramer
Designer: Puey Quinones
It's all about attitude and Cheska Garcia, with her fascinator and red lipstick, had that and more. She was an absolute vision in her vintage-Spanish wedding gown. The trumpet cut highlighted her stunning figure and we haven't gotten into the fine print yet. With feather plumes all over her skirt and train, very tricky lace paneling on her bodice, and the surprise keyhole at the back, this ensemble could easily be too much. But this model knows how to pull it off and keep it together.

3. Shamcey Supsup Lee
Designer: Cherry Veric
She was the picture of lace during her big day. Like an hour-glass-shaped sculpture in an exquisite second skin of floral lace and sparkling beads. The blush undertone makes it less frou-frou, which saves it from being over the top. We're still trying to wrap our heads around the lace platforms. But shoes aside, only someone with Shamcey's Bb. Pilipinas figure can pull off this body-hugging ensemble.

2. Karylle Tatlonghari Yuzon
Designer: Furne One
We're going to take the Virgin Mary description off the table now. Yes, the veil took a bit of getting used to, but we loved how Karylle stayed to her unique sense of style. No illusion netting for this bride. The bespoke ivory gown showed off exquisite detailing in the delicate lace trim and accents and the mermaid silhouette showed off her gorgeous figure. There's also something incredibly gorgeous about a train that goes on forever.

1. Maricar Reyes Poon
Designer: Francis Libiran
It's hard to decide whether Maricar looks like an angel or a goddess in this ethereal masterpiece by Francis Libiran. The gown had a billowing full skirt in layered tulle and a jeweled bodice complete with a high neckline and cap sleeves-all beaded, of course. In typical Libiran fashion, the entire thing is structured and elegant, but still breathtakingly romantic. Accessories are kept simple, including her Mickey See make-up. Doesn't she just take your breath away?
