"Feeling beauty queen sa dami ng sash kong natanggap para sa mga BRIDAL SHOWERS na binigay sa akin ng friends ko," said Sheena Halili in her Instagram post dated February 7.
The bride-to-be has so far had eight bridal showers, the latest of which was organized by her cousin Katrina Halili and three soul sisters—Van Soyosa, a celebrity manager; Arny Ross, a comedienne-model; Jel Capistrano, a GMA Artist Center handler.
Held at the Marina Bay Spa, Seaside Boulevard, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay, it was the perfect treat before her big day.
In her caption, Sheena further wrote, "Sabi nila this is what I needed. This is the time to relax na daw and beauty rest na til the big day. Alam nila ano ang mga pagsubok na meron ang wedding planning namin kaya daw ibulong ko sa sarili ko 'I DESERVE THIS.'"
The 33-year-old actress continued, "Napakasaya ko na makumpleto at makita lahat ng kaibigan ko. Nagbigay sila ng oras at effort para icelebrate ang pagiging soon to be misis ko. Nasasanay na ako na weekly may party for me, ha. at ang pinaka masaya lahat sila present sa wedding!
"Thank you Lord, sa mga kaibigan at family ko na nagmamahal sakin. Cheers para sa forever sisterhood!"
Since November 2019, the Kapuso bride-to-be has been busy making time for her bachelorette parties.
The first was held on the busy street of Takeshita in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan.
The second was organized by her future mother-in-law, the mom of her groom Atty. Jeron Manzanero.
It was a "dancelorette."
The third took place in her hometown, San Fernando, Pampanga, and it doubled as her birthday celebration.
It happened on January 6, 2020, ten days before her birthday.
Her fourth party was inspired by Barbie. It was thrown by her friends abroad and high-school classmates.
The fifth was a surprise party mounted by Katrina, Chariz Solomon, her matron of honor Rich Asuncion, and their circle of friends.
It was actually a prelude to another surprise party.
The sixth, which was dubbed #HulingHalili, was thrown by her Kapuso friends.
The seventh was made possible her bridesmaid Brit Romero and the "VV Girls," who are barkada of Jeron.
She exclaimed, "Ang sarap maging bride. Lalo na pag cool ang groom @jemanzanero! Thank you, babe! Ang ultimate kasabwat sa lahat ng bridal shower ko. Last na ba talaga ito? FYI: Akala ko Ninong at Ninang namin ang bibisitahin namin and may simple dinner lang."
