MANILA – Marjorie Barretto threw a despedida de soltera for her eldest daughter Dani, who is about to get married to her non-showbiz boyfriend Xavi Panlilio.
The intimate gathering was attended by the Barretto and Panlilio families as well as the couple’s closest friends.
On Instagram, Marjorie admitted that wedding preparations have distracted her from allowing herself “to feel all the emotions that a Mom goes through when her daughter is getting married.”
Despite this, she takes comfort in knowing that Panlilio will take care of her daughter.
“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,” she added.
Dani, on the other hand, thanked her mom for throwing her “the most beautiful and memorable” despedida de soltera.
“I feel like even if I say thank you a million times, it’s still not enough for the many things you’ve done and sacrificed for me. I am not the easiest child to raise but because of your love and guidance, I actually turned out fine. I love you so much, Mommy,” she said.
While Marjorie hinted that there are only a few days left until her daughter ties the knot with Panlilio, everyone in their family has remained mum about the actual date of the wedding.
