“I have to admit, the wedding preparations have distracted me from really allowing myself to feel all the emotions that a Mom goes thru when her daughter is getting married,” Marjorie said. [O]ne of my greatest strengths is to mask my feelings so I can stay focused on my responsibilities, and get the job done first.”

She added that the party was a way of saying goodbye to Dani and turning her over to her daughter’s soon-to-be husband, Xavi Panlilio.

With only a few days left till my first daughter’s wedding.. I gave her a Despedida De Soltera. I have to admit, the wedding preparations have distracted me from really allowing myself to feel all the emotions that a Mom goes thru when her daughter is getting married, one of my greatest strengths is to mask my feelings so I can stay focused on my responsibilities, and get the job done first. But last night, in the company of our families and closest friends, I felt that if we only continue to shower this couple with lots of love , prayers and guidance, they will do fine as a married couple. So this is me, saying goodbye to my Dani, turning over to Xavi all responsibilities knowing he can take care of her very well, and welcoming a new son into my family.

In a series of photos,  it showed that those who attended Dani’s party included her grandparents Miguel and Estrella, some uncles and aunts and her siblings Claudia and Leon. Some of her closest friends did not miss the bride-to-be’s party.

Dani also shared some photos from the party that showed fellow celebrities Erich Gonzales and Michelle Gumabao in attendance, as well as her fianceé’s family.

“My heart is full,” Dani expressed, adding about her future in-laws: “Not only do I get to marry the love of my life, but I am also blessed to have the best future in-laws in the world.”

Dani, who posted a photo similar to her mom’s, also thanked her for throwing her “the most beautiful and memorable” party.

“I feel like even if I say thank you a million times, its still not enough for the many things you’ve done and sacrificed for me,” she said about Marjorie. “I am not the easiest child to raise but because of your love and guidance,
I actually turned out fine.”

Dani and Xavi got engaged last February. Dani, who is a travel blogger and influencer, said in a blog post that the two of them met in La Union in 2017.  /ra
