Here are Grandest and Most Expensive Weddings in the Philippine History
1. Aga Muhlach And Charlene Gonzales
They got married on May 28, 2001 at the St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Baguio. City. Even though we’re not entirely sure on how much the actual wedding, catering, reception and different cost, we can agree that Aga and Charlene’s wedding is one of the grandest. The boy next door and lovable actor Aga Muhlach tied the knot with his beauty queen, Charlene Gonzales on her 3rd month of pregnancy to their now full-grown twins.
Not like as expected to celebrity marriage, Aga and Charlene’s was quiet and very intimate. Around 400 guests graced the event. However, their principal sponsor then president Gloria Arroyo didn’t go as to fulfill her role as a president. The catering was very lit, and guests even played golf during the reception in Camp John Hay.
Charlene’s mom Elvie is the one who made the cake for the couple’s big day.
2. Gabby Concepcion And Sharon Cuneta
They got married on September 23, 1984 at the Manila Cathedral Church. We won’t be giving you any numbers on how much the wedding of Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta was, but we will provide you some details and let you estimate:
First off, we know that the Gabby and Sharon tandem was one of the most highly acclaimed back in the days. There was a movie arranged by Viva Films titled as “The Best of Sharon and Gabby,” as the film speaks for itself, and they plan to include the wedding of the two in the movie. The result? They were nine cameras of Viva Films. Yes, nine. And note that this is not a little shooting, this is a real wedding.
The security was very tight – very might be an understatement to what happened in the wedding. President Marcos was present in the wedding so say hi to great security. It even reached the point where the mother of Sharon almost pleaded to get in. There were some points that some spaces in the church don’t look good in the camera, but fortunately, it was fixed.
The gown of Sharon was magnificent – hand-embroidered jusi with a diamond-studded tiara. Contrary to usual wedding practices, Gabby didn’t wait at the altar. Instead, for cinematic effect, Gabby also marched on the aisle.
We can go on with the big details and its lavishness. Unfortunately, the love story of Gabby and Sharon is not like in the movies. They were annulled after a few years.
3. Dingdong Dantes And Marian Rivera
The two got married on December 30, 2014 at the beautiful Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral, Quezon City. The estimated cost of the wedding is about 9 Million pesos for cake and gown only.
Dubbed as a royal wedding, the primetime king and queen of GMA 7 had provided large LCD screens that were set up outside the church for those who want to witness the wedding.
Marian Rivera wore a Michael Cinco gown, and Dingdong Dantes came riding his black Ducati motorcycle. Moreover, celebrities and politicians including President Noynoy Aquino graced the royal wedding.
It was said that the large 12 ft cake cost around 7 Million pesos and the dress for 2 Million pesos. The cake even got the attention of international media for being one of the biggest cakes, ever!
The total cost of the wedding is not entirely disclosed and still under speculation. Nevertheless, for sure it was worth it.
4. Ferdinand Marcos And Imelda Romualdez
The most powerful couple in the Philippines tied the knot on May 1, 1954 at the Pro Cathedral of San Miguel, Manila with an estimated cost of 1 Million to 2 Million pesos.
What would you expect with an infamous politician getting married to a well-known fashion designer and model? Can we spell out g-r-a-n-d even better than with Ferdinand Marcos and Imelda Romualdez-Marcos? Just think about the purchasing power of 1 million to 2 million Pesos back in 1954 and see how much it costs today!
It was said that President Ramon Magsaysay was the principal sponsor of the wedding. The catering or breakfast reception was held at Malacañan Palace, and around 3,000 elites and politicians graced the event.
