WITH the date set on December 10, actress and television host Bianca Gonzales is merely—and excitedly—counting days before she says “I do” to basketball star fiancé JC Intal.
Sharing details of her wedding preparations at a bridal shower hosted by Facial Care Center on November 25, the 31-year-old said she remains “super chill” as she ticks off her “to do list” from day to day.
“I enjoy the planning stage of the wedding. Every morning I wake up with a ‘to-do’ list, and I think that’s one of the things that I’ll miss after the wedding,” Bianca said at a beautiful set up at Chef Jessie’s 100 Revolving Restaurant in Libis, bearing Facial Care Center’s trademark shade of yellow-green.
For her wedding gown, the very modern Bianca decided to choose from the extensive Rosa Clara collection as she explained, “In my line of work it’s really hard to choose just one designer because all of them are friends and I love all of their works. So I opted for RTW [ready to wear]instead.”
After trying on a few dresses with different silhouettes, the host recalled, “Ganoon pala yung feeling when you put it on, you really feel like ‘it’s the one.’ You know when it’s the perfect dress,” she said of a strapless and beaded Rosa Clara piece.
Two young designers have been tasked dress the entourage, while top lensmen Pat Dy and Jason Magbanua are in charge of photo and video, respectively. Both also documented the couple’s pre-nuptial photos.
Bianca’s good friend and celebrity stylist Liz Uy was also involved in the pre-nup pictorial and will also style the bride on the big day.
Bianca describes her wedding, which she started preparing in May, as “nothing super formal, very chill lang.” She and JC opted for a more private wedding ceremony with close friends and family, followed by a bigger reception celebration at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.
The bride-to-be clearly enjoys preparing for the big event and happily revealed that “everything just fell into place.” She however admitted, “nakakaloka yung gastos.” Both she and JC are personally spending for their grand wedding.
A long time Facial Care Center beauty, Bianca said she didn’t really go through much prepping for her noticeably glowing skin.
“I just come to Facial Care for my regular facials, try not to put on too much makeup in the lead up to the wedding, and that’s about it,” she happily related.
Her glow, as she puts it, is a combination of her long-time skin care regimen, and of course the joy she feels within.
“I just want the whole day to be as memorable as can be,” she ended.
