Kaye Abad admits she’s excited to become Mrs. Paul Jake Castillo in December.
After getting engaged to her boyfriend Paul Jake Castillo five months ago, Kaye Abad happily declared how excited she is to walk down the aisle this coming December. Kaye said she never expected wedding plans to happen so fast. “Unang una pa lang, after the engagement, pag-gising sabi niya talaga sa akin, ‘Prepare na ha as soon as possible ito.’ Yun talaga sinabi niya sa akin. So akala ko after the engagement parang relaxed lang, pag-uusapan lang yung engagement at yung nangyari like ‘how do you feel.’ Pero sabi niya, ‘Hindi, prepare na. As soon as possible ito. Talk to my mom and ayusin niya na yan.’ Yun na yung sinabi niya sa akin. So hindi ko in-expect. Kasi usually di ba one year?” she told Push.com.ph.
During her bridal shower held last October 15, Kaye revealed she has always had an idea of a dream wedding when she was younger. "Before nung bata pa ako (laughs) gusto ko malaking wedding. Gusto ko ng parang mala-princess. Gusto ko yan. Gusto ko church wedding. Gusto ko madaming flowers, gusto ko engrande. But grabe I guess dahil bata pa ako gusto ko ng princess-type na wedding, but nung tumanda na ako gusto ko na lang siya ng mas simple. Mas gusto ko yung intimate, yung mas kumbaga yung family lang talaga yung nandiyan, yung mga close friends. Pero hindi rin siya mangyayari (laughs). Kasi malaki yung family ni Paul Jake so I guess it’s going to be a big wedding,” she shared.
At the moment, Kaye said she has her hands full planning her rustic theme wedding which will be held at the Radisson Blu hotel in Cebu in December. "I’m very hands-on. As much as possible, ideas ko lahat. Ang wedding coordinator is just there to coordinate with them or kung may mga ideas ako sasabihin ko sa kanya para sabihin na lang niya dun sa suppliers. Most of it talaga ideas ko,” she added.
Although the 34-year-old actress wants things to be low-key and simple, she admitted she trusts designer Francis Libiran to make her the perfect gown. "Hindi na siya fairytale (wedding) kasi matanda na ako (laughs). Nag-iba na yung taste ko. Kahit sa gown, sabi ko talaga, ‘Francis gusto ko talaga simple gown. Kung puwedeng walang beadwork, walang beadworks.’ Pero sabi niya, ‘No, hindi kita gagawan ng ganun. Kasi minsan ka lang ikakasal. Hindi kita gagawan ng simpleng gown.’” she revealed.
With an expected number of 600 guests to attend the wedding, Kaye said her loved ones have been supportive of her plans. "My family and friends talaga ang lilipad (papuntang Cebu) so sabi ko talaga, ‘Test of friendship talaga ito.’ So far sobrang na-touch talaga ako sa mga kaibigan ko. Sinabi ko nga kay Paul Janke, ‘Ang sarap pala nung feeling na yung alam mong mahal ka ng mga kaibigan mo talaga.’ Kasi nung sinabi ko sa kanila na it’s going to be in Cebu, no questions asked sila. Nag-yes na sila to be there. Tapos yung iba nag-text na after a week na nakapag-book na sila. Ang sarap ng feeling na lahat sila excited. Parang lahat sila pinaghahandaan nila,” she said.
