Yeng Constantino's advice to girls who feel that waiting for the right one is impossible: "Siguro sa mga kabataan, it’s possible. Mahirap. Crucial yung waiting time, minsan maiinip ka pero, minsan feeling mo, 'Kelan ba darating?' Pero tandaan mo, may reward yung waiting.”


Soon to be bride Yeng Constatino said that she and fiancé Yan Asuncion are almost done with their wedding preparations.

The couple is set to wed in a garden-wedding February of next year.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the Pop Rock Princess revealed a few details about her upcoming wedding.

WEDDING PREPARATIONS. Months after she got engaged, Yeng did her check list for her wedding right away. She explained, “Meron na kaming venue, meron na kaming food.

"Imi-meet na namin yung gagawa ng cake, imi-meet na namin yung supplier namin ng mga alak.”

“Actually tapos na, e,” beamed Yeng.

She continued, “Sounds, meron na. Musician na lang yung pina-finalize namin kung sino ang tutugtog. Actually wala ngang kakanta, e. Most ng kaibigan ko musicians, I don’t want them to work that day. Gusto ko lang sila maging bisita, kaibigan, maenjoy lang talaga nila yung moment.”

Unlike the typical all-white wedding dress, Yeng opted for a different shade of red gown. Although a "rocker," she still wants a solemn wedding.

“Very cute and fun. Marami nga nag-e-expect na maingay siguro dahil pareho kaming musician or iniisip nila rock-themed wedding. Actually medyo solemn kaming dalawa, so mas piano, mas violin.”

PRINCIPAL SPONSORS. Yeng and Yan both decided to really get their closest families and friends to be a part of their wedding entourage. The Kapamilya artist said that there will be no known personalities on the list, but she also invited everyone in ASAP and is hoping that they could come on that special day.

Who is she expecting to come?

“Lahat ng closest friends ko, gusto ko nandun at saka syempre yung mga kapatid ko, gusto ko na masaksihan nila yun," came her reply.

“Kasi alam nila kung gaano ko katagal pinangarap 'yan. Yun lang, family and mga super close na mga friends.”

Will there be celebrities on the entourage?

“Wala, e,” she answered.

Yeng explained, “Sobrang mga friends din kasi yung ibang ninong, ninang namin. Hindi sila masyadong matanda.

“Di ba, ibig sabihin ng ninong at ninang godparents sila? Yung mga couples na pwede mag-advise sa life ninyo? Yung nakikita n'yong magandang takbuhan in case na meron mangyari sa relationship?

“So may mga kaibigan kami na hindi masyadong may age pero sobrang nilu-look up namin yung relationship. Sinabihan namin sila na gusto namin sila maging ninong at ninang.”

Yeng said that she wanted to keep her big day private, but she promises to share wedding videos and photos with her supporters, called Yengsters.

Yeng explained, “Gusto naman namin pero after na lang, pag tapos ng event.

“Siyempre ilalabas namin yung mga wedding pictures and videos. Yun naman talaga yung nasa heart namin ni Yan, na i-share yung moment sa mga close friends namin.

“Pero naiintindihan naman ni Yan na yung mga sumusuporta sa akin, they want to see me on that day pero siguro after na lang.

“Talagang ilalabas naman namin lahat ng photos. Even yung honeymoon destination photos namin, which is in Maldives, i-share din namin.

“Di naman ako madamot sa ganyan gusto ko rin naman 'yan i-share sa mga tagasuporta ko,” she related.

The musician is a testament that waiting for the right one is definitely worth the wait. She recalled that at a young age, she already imagined herself having a boyfriend, “Nagka-crush na ako ng napakarami before.

“Nakakatuwa naman po na yung una kong sinagot, siya rin yung pakakasalan ko. Hindi ko rin talaga akalain na kahit talagang pinlano ko na magkakatotoo.

“Kasi 15 pa lang ako nung naisip ko mag-boyfriend sabi ko, ‘Kung sino talaga yung sasagutin ko siya na yung pakakasalan ko.’

“Pero hindi ko inakala na mapu-push ko siya," she continued. "Natutuwa din ako, syempre, kasi siya din, ako yung una niyang girlfriend. Napangatawanan niya din at alam namin na madaming tao ang nag-iisip na hindi mangyayari.”

Yeng gave her advise to all the single girls out there, who think waiting for the right one is impossible, “Siguro sa mga kabataan, It’s possible. Mahirap. Crucial yung waiting time. Minsan maiinip ka, pero minsan, feeling mo, 'Kelan ba darating?' Pero tandaan mo, may reward yung waiting.”

And through waiting, she was rewarded with a loving boyfriend, who she will marry in a few months' time.

“IKAW.” Yeng’s newest song is a testament of their love story and it was seen in the music video, where candid moments of Yeng and Yan were captured and they simply look genuinely happy. But to her fans' surprise, Yeng was very emotional on the latter part. What was on her mind when they were doing the music video?

She said, “Kaya ako naiyak dun sa may bandang dulo kasi kinakanta ko na yung lyrics, ako yung sumulat nung kanta," she revealed.

“Actually nu'n nirecord namin yun sa studio, hindi ko talaga siya makanta, umiiyak lang talaga ako. Pag labas ko sa sa studio sabi ni Yan, ‘Love, ba’t ka umiiyak?’

“Hindi ko makanta, hindi ko ma-express into words yung nafi-feel ko about it. Kaya nung kinakanta na siya sa Singapore shoot namin, naiyak pa din ako kahit pinipigilan ko na, kasi I’m really, really happy na nakilalako si Yan, na siya yung papakasalan ko, kasi ang bait-bait niya talaga and napaka-blessed ko talaga na woman.”

Yeng said that doing that video made her realize how happy they are as a couple. She shared her most-loved moments while doing the video.

She added, “Yung singing part, ginawa namin sa Singapore yun, natapos na namin i-shoot yung Batanes and Palawan.

“During Batanes and Palawan, sobrang fun lang yun sa amin, ayaw namin ma-feel na parang nagtatrabaho kami or anything.

“Nagshu-shoot pala sila ng videos in between takes so yung mga nakikita nila sa music video na naghaharutan kami, na nagtatawanan kami mga in-between takes.

“Kami rin nung una namin napanood ni Yan yun, naiyak kami, ‘Love, ganun pala talaga tayo kasaya tignan.’

“From outside, kung hindi [tayo] 'yan, tapos tiningnan natin, parang, ‘Wow, ang saya-saya naman nila na couple.’

“Nakakatuwa na na-capture ni Direk, kasi gusto namin pag nagka-anak kami ni Yan, mapapakita namin sa anak namin yung video. Tapos ma-share namin sa kanila na, 'Grabe kami nung tatay n'yo nung bata pa kami...' Ganun ka-happy.

“We want them na kung meron man silang relationship, kami yung gusto nilang maging peg, yung ganun kasaya,” explained the soon-to-be bride.
