Dingdong Dantes speaks up on wedding expenses
011315-dingdong_main.jpgWeeks after their very lavish nuptial, the “royal wedding” of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera is still a hot topic . While some thought that the event was lovely, some quarters thought that it was “thoughtlessly extravagant.” Some have even suggested that the money could’ve just been shared with the impoverished sector.

Such remarks stemmed from reports that Marian’s wedding gown, which was made by Dubai-based Filipino designer Michael Cinco, amounted to a staggering P2 million.

While the total amount spent for the wedding remains undisclosed, Dingdong in an earlier interview admitted that he was really the one who shelled out money for the wedding.

Ako kasi ang thinking ko kasi diyan itong araw na ito is really for her and it’s for the sake of our families. But it’s really more for her. I really want it as a gift para sa kanya. So dapat lang naman talaga [na ako ang gumastos],” he explained.

To this, Dingdong explained, “Sabihin nalang natin na meron kaming mga naging kaibigan even before this and they are helping us in so many ways. Hindi naman pupwedeng sabihin na dole out 100% dahil negosiyo rin nila ‘yan eh and at the same time kaibigan rin namin sila.”

He added, “Siguro isipin na lang natin na nagtutulungan kami, in the same way na tinutulungan nila kami sa mga needs namin. And sana makatulong rin kami sa kanila in the future in what way or means possible.”

Seeing that he was able to spend a lot for their wedding last December 30 at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral Church, many presumed that Dingdong had been saving for their much-awaited event for a while now.

Sabihin natin kung nangyari ito 12 years ago, kung ano man ang meron ako I would give it everything as long as alam ko ma-exhaust ko lahat to make her happy,” the Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles actor and producer said.

With that he emphasized that “parang nagiging relative lang kung gaano karami o gaano kamahal ang pwedeng maibigay mo para mapasaya siya.

“Pero the truth is ‘yung mga simpleng bagay naman talaga ‘yun ang pinakamahalaga,” he ended.
