The search for the perfect dress will inevitably lead you to Vera Wang at 8 Rockwell. The designer’s first and only boutique in Manila looks like a dream come true. Here, you get to try on a lovely selection of ready-to-wear designer creations. Plus, they have the most inviting fitting suites where you can swirl and sashay in front of three-way full-length mirrors and seats that can accommodate your entire entourage.

Rebellious brides will love this fabulous show-stopper. 

Brides who fall in love with a Vera Wang dress are advised to schedule an initial fitting 9 to 12 months before the wedding date. Actual gowns are made in the New York headquarters and shipped to Manila after 6 months. Once the gown is in town, best to allot a few more months for the in-house seamstress to alter and tweak your dress.

If time is a luxury you don’t have, and you’re lucky enough to find the perfect dress in your size, you can purchase any of the gowns already available in-store.
