Wedding Coordinator Says Dingdong Dantes Paid For WeddingTeena Barretto, the wedding coordinator of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, said the actor paid for the wedding, which was "not a cheap wedding."
The two got married on December 30 at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Cubao, Quezon City.
Teena reacted to the wedding cost because of the negative comments from netizens since DongYan's wedding happened the same time Typhoon Seniang was battering Mindanao. Some said it was callous and insensitive of the two to push through with the wedding when so many people are suffering.
Some also said that GMA Network paid for the whole wedding since there will be a TV special. Teena denied this. While companies offered to sponsor the wedding, most of those were declined.
There were xdeals for the wedding, but this did not total to about 5% of the cost paid by Dingdong. She admitted that teh 12-foot, five-tiered wedding cake was a gift from Goldilocks, which Dingdong endorses.
Teena finds it unfair that the couple are being bashed for something that is so wonderful. Although they are thankful for those who are generous to share their products, it is unfair that Dingdong and Marian are being criticized for something they worked hard for.
"Dingdong had the purest intention of giving Marian the best wedding she deserves."
Teena, who said she is the most reliable source of information about the wedding, challenged those criticizing the couple to reveal who they are.
