MANILA, Philippines - Wedding bells will ring for couple Kyla and Rich Alvarez before the year ends.
“Sa November 28 na,” the R&B singer excitedly announced on “Party Pilipinas,” July 24, as reported by “Showbiz Central” on the same day. “This year na ‘yan. So ilang buwan na lang,” the bride-to-be added.
The singer happily shared their pre-wedding “Save the Date” video, which was shot in Virgin Beach Resort, San Juan, Batangas.
“Kahit ako, ‘pag pinapanood ko siya, kinikilig pa rin ako,” Kyla enthused.
Dishing out anecdotes about the shoot, the singer said, “Sinabi lang nila sa amin, ‘O, basta tumakbo-takbo lang kayo. Kung ano ang gusto n’yong gawin.’ Tapos ‘yung ginawa namin sumampa ako sa kanya, tumalon. Kasi ‘yung iba, candid shot na siya, ‘yung tumatakbo-takbo na kami. Naglalaro-laro lang kami.”
With four months before the wedding date, Kyla is now on a rush in attending to some details for her altar date with the basketball player of Talk ‘N Text team, Tropang Texters, of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).
“Actually, medyo kailangan ko nang madaliin ‘yung ibang mga bagay kasi mahirap, eh. Like sa church parang meron silang parang early requirement. Kunwari kailangan mong i-submit three months before. May mga gano’n. So kami, like ‘yung sa seminar namin, we have to do that as much as possible.”
Asked what her wedding theme would be, Kyla quipped, “vintage Hollywood.”
“Gusto ko lahat kasi ng guests ko very glamorous sila, maganda, gano’n. Hindi naman necessarily formal na long gown or whatever basta glamorous lang,” she explained.
She also related her simple request to her parents.
“Nag-request ako (na) ‘yung parents ko kumanta, kasi choir (members) sila dati. Sabi ko kantahan nila ako, ‘yung mga kanta nila dati, ‘yung mga kundiman.”
Kyla added, “Excited kami (na) parang ma-share na namin ‘yung... parang makapag-explore na kami together, makapag-travel kami, ‘yung gano’n. We couldn’t wait to ano, parang travel and explore the world together.”
Kyla doesn’t hide the fact that she feels very fortunate to have met Rich, with whom she has been for about five years now. “Sobrang thankful ako kay Lord kasi naka-meet ako ng tao na katulad niya.”
Back in February, Kyla recalled how rich proposed to her the month before.
“Bale nag-dinner lang kami sa isang hotel somewhere. Hindi ko naman ine-expect na in-invite niya ‘yung parents ko, parents niya, tapos ‘yung mga titos [and] titas namin. Tapos nandu’n na silang lahat [sa venue]. Ayun, nag-propose na siya," she recalled.
In another interview, she also shared details about her dream wedding. "Gusto ko traditional, 'yong naglalakad sa church... Medyo may pagka-Filipina ako, minsan ka lang kasing ikasal, 'di ba, kaya maglalakad na ko sa aisle."
