MANILA – This actress just proved that you can get married without burning a hole in your pocket.
Rich Asuncion tied the knot with rugby player Benjamin Mudie in a civil ceremony in Hong Kong last Monday, May 28.
She wore a form-fitting, off-shoulder white dress.
Citing an interview with Asuncion’s close friend, Aaron Acuña, entertainment website Pep.ph reported that the actress got her wedding dress at Sheike, a ready-to-wear boutique in Australia.
She bought the Allure Maxi Dress – which currently costs 129 Australian dollars or around P5,113 online – while on vacation in Sydney, the report added.
In 2015, singer Kitchie Nadal impressed many Filipinos for wearing a P799 gown to her own wedding.
“This should show all brides around the world that sometimes it’s about the woman and not the dress,” Nadal said in a blog post.
