Choosing a wedding gown is probably one of the most stressful things to tick off of your list, but when you find the perfect fit, it'll surely be worth the time, effort and money. But nowadays, prenup shoots are held as well to basically give your families and friends a little "appetizer" for your wedding day. Couples choose a location and theme that suit both their likings — and it's usually the beach.
All sorts of prenup shoot themes come to life, so here comes another thing to add to your list: a prenup shoot gown. Not to mention the kinds of fabric, the cuts, the color, and everything that comes with it, you'll have to decide on these things or simply let your trusted designer do the magic for you.
Speaking of trusted designer, we know it may be overwhelming to browse all those Pinterest boards and online catalogs so you could have pegs in mind. But with Francis Libiran, a Filipino fashion designer, it'll certainly be a piece of cake.
Francis is an A-list designer whose original and high-quality creations have graced prestigious red carpet events and numerous fashion shows all over the world. He designs wedding gowns, evening gowns, menswear, corporate wear, dresses and even accessories.
If you'll be going for a beachside prenup shoot but you still haven't decided on your attire, here are three important tips from Francis himself:
Your beachside shoot will surely require a lot of turns and slow runs to get that perfectly timed shot, so remember to choose a dress made of lightweight fabric. With a flowy dress, you won't have to worry about restrictions in movement, especially if you'll be walking by the shore. Silk chiffon and fine soft tulle would be great fabric options for your prenup shoot gown.
You wouldn't want to trip over your gown train or have those cloth clips seen in the photos, so make sure that the gown fits perfectly and complements your silhouette. You may opt for a simple design for your beach wedding but the fit must be seamlessly perfect.
Do not just choose a dress because it looks good or it's what on trend. You should fall in love with your gown. Pick a design that will make you happy each time you see it. Your prenup shoot gown should boost your confidence and make you feel totally beautiful on that special day.

You might associate ‘fun’ and ‘relax’ with beach resorts or mountain villas, but being in the heart of the city has its perks and doesn’t always have to be a hassle. We had the pleasure of shooting with model, television host, beauty columnist, lifestyle blogger, and mum Kelly Misa recently and caught up a bit on the beauty of city living.
I love being central to my work and to my family and friends. It is really convenient given I don’t need to travel far to get to my destination. Also, all the best groceries and markets are in the city (my priorities because I’m a mom) and it’s just more accessible to live within Metro Manila.
Being a mom to a toddler who just recently started school, I rarely go out. But as a family, we love eating out and trying new restaurants. One restaurant I recently tried and loved is Pablo Bistro in Salcedo Village. They serve the most amazing goat cheese salad as well as grilled octopus! Amazing! And just next door is Cartel Deli where you can find excellent coffee.
My weekends are spent with family. Most times we spend our time together at home but once in awhile we go out and try a new restaurant, check in a hotel to go on a staycation or drive out of town to Tagaytay or to the beach in Batangas.
I go to One Life Studio in Alabang for one on one Pilates sessions. This has really helped me stretch out my muscles, strengthen my core, and fix my posture.
A warm shimmery blush! I love Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color blush in Terrarose, and a pinkish nude lippie, MAC Velvet Teddy. Usually that’s all I wear everyday.
SweetEscape has been an absolute joy… I have captured so many amazing photos from my travels all over the world thanks to this photography app and I really can’t ask for anything more. The photographers are always kind and accommodating, and so patient with my son to get that perfect family photo.
