Bangs Garcia is hands-on when it comes to her wedding preparations. The actress said that she is very ecstatic about completing everything for the upcoming special day.
“I got so excited ‘yung wedding list ko almost half of it it’s done already. I’m too excited kasi I get OC once I get into something, I get in the zone. Halos lahat gusto kong tapusin but I have to go to America last month with my fiance to spend my birthday so natigil ‘yung pag-plan ko. Ngayon medyo I am slowly going back to it so very exciting. Ngayon naghahanap pa ako ng florist. Actually ‘yun na lang ‘yung pinaka-problema ko. Everything else is done. Meron na akong designer, meron na akong host, meron na akong pang giveaway,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
She added that she is very excited about how her wedding gown will turn out. “I think ‘yun naman ang pina-exciting sa wedding di ba? Lahat ng girl we just can’t stop thinking about our wedding gown, how it is going to be and at the same time you got to be a designer yourself kasi you say anything what you want.”
Bangs will be getting married to her half-British boyfriend Lloyd Birchmore in Boracay in January. They are also planning to hold a wedding in London.
Now that she is about to settle down, is she going to leave showbiz?
“What I like the most about him is he is very supportive. He doesn’t want to take away what I have already built here in the Philippines and he knows it’s my passion so he is allowing me to still continue acting and at the same time he is still going to build us a house eh sa London so habang tinatapos ‘yung house namin, [I will do] acting muna and ‘yun he loves visiting Philippines so fly in, fly out muna or sometimes ako naman ang dadalhin niya don,” she relayed.
Bangs also shared that she met her fiance’s family when they visited the Philippines.
“They went here before he proposed to me. His family talked to my family. Medyo traditional siyempre kasi ‘yung mom niya Filipina. In fact, I am very close to his family kasi they’re the coolest and funniest family I have ever known kasi siyempre British ‘yung dad niya. Alam mo naman ‘yung British humor di ba? Actually he is just extra funny, ‘yung dad niya. Para lang silang mag best friends kasi Lloydie has a younger brother Dan and silang tatlo para silang magbabarkada lang,” she said.
She added, “Even tita Charmaine (her fiance’s mom) I call them mumsie and popsie, ganon na kami ka-close, and she even considers me as her best friend now. So ‘yun na ‘yung maganda kasi very family-oriented ako. It’s very important to me that you get along with the family of your partner. That’s actually one basis for me na nasabi kong this is the one na talaga kasi nong first time na na-meet ko ‘yung family niya, nakita ko how he really is as a person.”
