Staying true to her minimalist aesthetic, Maine looked truly radiant in a strapless and simple wedding dress for the ceremony.
As of the current press time, information about the designer of Maine's wedding ceremony bridal gown remains undisclosed.
During the reception, Maine looked stunning in a strapless ball gown adorned with intricate lace throughout.
Based on the available photos, it seems Maine wore the “Asti” gown from the Spring/Summer 2023 collection of Israel-based couture/made-to-measure wedding gown label, Studio Mira Zwillinger.
The gown also included a detachable shrug – a soft illusion tulle wrap with hand-beaded ruffle detail, which Maine opted not to wear.
The brand's website does not provide specific pricing details.
However, to give an idea of the cost for Mira Zwillinger gowns, they are generally priced between USD 8,000 to USD 15,000, as per information available on online marketplaces.
In April 2022, Crash Landing On You actress Son Ye Jin also chose a gown from the same brand for her enchanting private wedding with her co-star-turned-husband Hyun Bin in Seoul, South Korea, in April 2022.

In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Arjo enthusiastically shared how deeply involved they are in the preparations for their wedding.
He said, “Being the girl she is, she's very independent as well.
“So we work together for the whole cause, and I'm enjoying every step of it. She's OC, she's hands-on. That's the way she really is. Bonus na lang sa akin.”
Arjo was a chill groom-to-be then, and simply relished every minute with his bride-to-be.
“Because obviously she really is, might be stressed out at some points. Everyone gets stressed naman, and it's wanted stress naman.
“But I guess at the end of the day, to be honest, I'm just really enjoying every moment, savoring all these times with her.”
