Why Richard Gutierrez, Sarah Lahbati might not get their dream wedding
Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati’s big day is coming closer as Lahbati is due to give birth “anytime.”
Gutierrez said on the talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda” that the actress is on her “last month of pregnancy.”
He said pregnancy was easier for her on the second time around. The two actors have a four-year-old son named Zion.
They have also been planning their wedding after five years as a couple. It appears they’ll be having a large wedding, as per their parents’ requests.
“Siyempre, yung parents namin ni Sarah they’re very traditional Filipino, especially our moms. Gusto nila dito sa Pilipinas. Gusto nila yung traditional na invited lahat, invited yung kamag-anak ng kamag-anak namin so siyempre hindi naman namin matatanggihan yun. Siyempre nirerespeto namin yung gusto ng parents namin,” he said.
(Of course, both our parents are very traditional Filipino, especially our moms. They want it here in the Philippines. They want it in the traditional way that everyone’s invited, even the relatives of our relatives, so we can’t say no to that. Of course, we’ll respect what our parents want.)
However, their own dream wedding would take a different direction. “If we can have it our way, gusto namin sana ni Sarah na mas intimate yung wedding. Gusto sana namin yung close family and close friends ang kasama namin dun sa special moment namin.”
(If we can have it our way, we would want a more intimate wedding. We would want close family and close friends with us in our special moment.)
He also disclosed that they have a “shortlist of venues” and that they want a “beach wedding or a mountain wedding.”
In the premiere episode of season five of the reality show “It Takes Gutz to Be a Gutierrez”, Lahbati’s condition for a wedding location was “it has to be somewhere cold.”
A destination wedding could be fitting as Gutierrez proposed in the mountains of Switzerland last August. Niña V. Guno/JB
