TJ Monterde and KZ Tandingan initially planned on having their wedding this year, but they had to change their plans because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Zoom on June 24, 2020, the singer said they have not set a new date.
He said, "Sobra po as in delayed talaga siya. Planado na talaga kami this year, and since ito nga COVID, so probably next year na talaga ito, but still uncertain.
"Kasi tayong lahat ngayon, nangangapa tayong lahat, e. Hindi pa rin tayo sure kung kailan babalik ito.
"Lalo kaming dalawa, we’re both from Mindanao and yung flights, mahirap. Yung parents namin, yung families namin, parang mahirap talaga lumipad.
"So puhon lang po muna yung sagot namin sa ngayon."
The word "Puhon" means hopefully or in God's time. It is also the title of his latest single with PolyEast Records.
He continued, "Since this happened, move to TBA [to be announced] muna sa ngayon kasi kahit kami ngayon, di rin naming alam."
According to TJ, KZ started planning their wedding a month after they got engaged in December 2019.
"We have been ready ever since talaga. After nung proposal namin, parang a month after, naghanda na talaga kami. I mean, mas siya talaga.
"Si KZ yung planner type of person. Nakahanda na siya, meron na siyang pegs, meron na siyang kung sino yung planner, kung sino yung photographer, kung sino yung videographer."
Even their prenup shoot in Japan was KZ's idea.
"Yung ginawa namin na… hindi ko alam kung nakita niyo yung prenup shoot na ginawa namin sa Japan, parang idea niya yun lahat, e."
TJ hopes to hold their "normal wedding" once all the restrictions are lifted.
He said, "We’re planning to have like a real normal wedding when it’s possible. Nasa plano pa rin naman namin yun."
When asked about the most challenging part of wedding planning, TJ answered: guest list.
He remarked, "Kung maari, limited guests which is very hard. For one, Filipinos, and two, sa trabaho na ganito, yun yung pinaka-challenge siguro, yung mamili ng guests."
Meanwhile, TJ said he lets KZ call the shots, and he only has two requests: coffee and plants.
He told PEP.ph, "Sa planning, ano lang ako, e, parang dun lang ako sa gilid 'tapos, ‘oo’ lang ako.
"Basta ang sinasabi ko lang sa kanya, basta maraming kape at maraming halaman dun sa kasal. Kasi pareho kaming mahilig sa medyo nature, e."
Have they decided on the venue?
He said, "We’re planning na lugar na… Hindi namin alam kung Tagaytay or Baguio, basta medyo malamig na lugar. Yun yung plano namin."
