The only thing Arjo Atayde wishes to happen at his wedding to Maine Mendoza
“She is on top of everything,” said actor Arjo Atayde of his fiancée, actress-TV host Maine Mendoza, when Inquirer Entertainment asked how things are coming along in the preparations for their wedding that’s reportedly set for July.
“Of course, the women are always on top of things. I’ve already accepted that,” quipped Arjo, who is the son of actress Sylvia Sanchez and sister of Ria Atayde.
“It’s her day. I’m just here to support whatever Maine wants to happen on that day,” he stressed. “But what I love is that she really considers my suggestions, even the minimal ones. Obviously, to us guys, whatever our women or partners want, we’re OK.”
As to what he wished to personally experience on that special day, Arjo said: “It’s going to sound very cheesy, but again, I just want to see her happy. Also, I want to see our loved ones there, my friends, the people who matter in our lives, and the ones we care for the most. They all have to be there as their gift to us.”
‘Savor every moment’
He continued: “I just want to savor every moment with her because I know that, for every wedding that I’ve gone to for a friend, it’s just one day and it’s all done.”
Arjo said that apart from praying for a better tomorrow for the country, he also prays “for everyone in my family to be healthy, as well as for my marriage with Maine to last a lifetime and for us to have healthy children.”Arjo said he noticed that his prayer has gotten “more mature” compared to before. “I used to just wish I could get a car,” he said, laughing. “I have to admit, I don’t pray every day. I’m no saint, but I definitely pray as much as I can just to say ‘thank you’ and to ask for guidance for my goals. Obviously, hard work should be supplemented with prayers.” INQ
