MANILA, Philippines – Multimedia star Toni Gonzaga was given a surprise bridal shower organized by her sister Alex Gonzaga last Friday night, June 5, and held at Discovery Primea Hotel in Makati City. This triggered the speculations that the wedding day of Toni and her longtime boyfriend director Paul Soriano is near.
The couple confirmed their engagement last February but no wedding datehas been confirmed. They kept the details of their wedding a secret and only shared to the public the general venue of the ceremony; a church in Toni’s hometown of Taytay, Rizal.
In one of her past interviews, Toni said they really can’t confirm when they will get married since they have a lot of commitments and they are still arranging everything.
“Hopefully, talaga this year ma-push namin,” she said. (Hopefully, we can push the wedding this year.)
However, after several photos of the bridal shower has been shared on Instagram, including a post by Instagram user @cathymaecruz showing a picture of the bride-to-be and Alex with the caption: “Best surprise ever! #bridalshower #maidofhonor #7days #thebestmaidofhonorparty”, people speculated that the wedding date of Toni and Paul is on June 12, which is also their 8th anniversary as a couple.
The “#7days” seems to hint the number of days left before the big day.
Some of Toni’s celebrity friends who attended her bridal shower are her “Four Sisters and A Wedding” co-star Angel Locsin, former “Pinoy Big Brother” co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla and Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, “Home Sweetie Home” co-star Miles Ocampo, “Maging Sino Ka Man” co-star Bea Alonzo, stylist Liz Uy and “It’s Showtime” host Vice Ganda.
Last Sunday, May 31, the actress-TV host was also given an advanced bridal shower by her “ASAP” family.
Toni was serenaded by the show’s gentlemen, Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby, Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano and his son Gab Valenciano.
