More than a month to go before she ties the knot to fiancé Jason Marvin Hernandez, Moira Dela Torre revealed some of her wedding preparations including challenging ones such as water diet which requires one to consume mostly water. According to Moira, taking on the water diet goes beyond losing weight.
“Well, now I am trying to do a cleanse. And I’m trying to exercise. I think it’s not really to lose weight but more so to be able to stand at the aisle and look at my future husband saying here’s your healthy wife because you deserve a healthy wife. And I think it’s also my jumpstart to marriage and all of that. Also, I’ve been spending all my days off planning the wedding with Jason. Ang dami po naming preparations na ginagawa from suits to gowns to hotels to you know, the food. Ang dami dami but it’s really showing me that we are a great team,” she shared in an exclusive interview with PUSH.
Moira also revealed that her family and Jason’s will be spending Christmas together to celebrate Noche Buena and pamamanhikan or the Filipino tradition of the guy’s family visiting the home of the soon-to-be bride as a way of asking for the girl’s parents’ hands in marriage at the same time.
“Kasi ‘yung family ko from the States which is my Dad and my stepmom and my sisters, they get here December 23. So they’ll be here until the wedding. And first time ko in my entire life to spend Christmas with my entire family. ‘Yung hindi hati. ‘Yung hindi ako nasa Olongapo lang. Or sa States lang. As in both families are there. So I think Jason wanted to take that opportunity also to have my entire family together,” she stated.
“The venue is going to be in Tagaytay. My gown is going to be by Patricia Santos. Jason's suit will be by Francis Libiran. My cake is going to be by The Naked Patisserie. My photographer’s Pat Dy. My video team is going to be Mayad. I’m so excited for that. It’s going to be a very intimate wedding. It’s not going to be big. It’s not going to be grand. It’s going to be simple. Gideon Hermosa is going to dress up the place. But basically, Ate Vice (Ganda) is going to be there, Kuya Sam (Milby), my family, Jason’s family, Kuya Pratty (John Prats). You know, the people we’re closest to in the industry. We didn’t really get to invite everyone that we wanted to but ayun, the ones that we did get to invite are the ones that we’ve learned most from.”

Wedding Reception Installation, Gideon Hermosa
"I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul." The idea is to have a moody wedding inspired by the vibe of Lana del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" mixed with some Romeo + Juliet vibe. Using vivid shades and deep hues, the pitch is to have something ethereal, romantic, dark, eerily beautiful, yet elegant. Drawing inspiration from prose, poetry, music and the love story of the couple, we transformed the venue from ceremony to reception with two different looks. #AljurKyliEpicAfter #Gideonized @villamilagrosevents @labellefete @lxeventspro @bobnicolas @theproudrad @josephgatz @juancarlocaterer @maktumang @mkqua @renzpangilinan @chef_castillo_fuentes @cl_decor @bellabanquets @shoprentgala @soundsaladband @jcalelis

Moira, who was named Spotify’s Most Streamed Local Artist, couldn’t be more thankful for the all the blessings that she received this year.
“I guess 2018 is one of the years that I’m always going to be most grateful for. Ang dami ko pong nakuha na recognition that I never really imagined to get. And you know, I’m not the best singer, I’m not the best performer, I don’t dance, hindi ako bumibirit. But still, nabigyan ako ng mga blessings na ganito. And I’m always going to be most grateful for 2017 and 2018,” she said.
Moira Dela Torre is set to wed Jason Marvin Hernandez in January.
