Toni Gonzaga will make sure that she will get married this year to fiance Paul Soriano. The two got engaged in December last year.
It’s just that she’s busy these days, so she’s finding it hard to set a definite date. If she will be the one to decide, she wants a Church wedding in her hometown of Antipolo because that’s where she was baptised.
She joked that she wants to decide for her own wedding instead of her Mommy Pinty. “Buong buhay ko, siya na ang nasusunod, e. Sana naman, sa araw na ‘to, ako ang masunod talaga!”
Church is the foundation of their relationship, Toni said.
Paul’s parents are getting ready for “pamamanhikan,” a Filipino tradition where the groom’s parents meet with the bride’s parents formally to ask for her hand in marriage.
Toni reveals she wants a traditional, clean and white wedding. They are already in the process of planning for their wedding, so they are listing the names of their possible principal sponsors.
She just wants to tap people whose love stories inspired them, and who supported their relationship. They will definitely have Boy Abunda as one of their principal sponsors.
Reportedly, Gary Valenciano wanted to be their wedding singer. Toni confirmed that it’s impossible not to have him there because she and Paul met during Gary’s concert.
They won’t be getting President Noynoy Aquino as principal sponsor because he’s busy running the country. How about Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, who is close to Toni’s father and who once took on a role as her father in a movie?
She’s not sure yet because they don’t have a final list. Toni doesn’t want to announce anything yet because they want to personally invite their guests.
The singer-actress revealed that she already has a wedding gown, and that she had her fitting already. She’s only waiting for the final fitting.
Toni has a dream designer ever since she’s a kid. This designer is the name that always crops up when people talk about celebrity weddings. She doesn’t want to reveal who that is because she doesn’t want to jinx it.
She will announce the specific date of their wedding after her movie with Coco Martin.
Toni just signed another contract with ABS-CBN. Included in her contract is the hosting of “Pinoy Big Brother,” a teleserye, and the movie with Coco under Star Cinema.
