Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera celebrated their second anniversary yesterday, December 30.

In local showbiz, December means taking a break, spending quality time with family and loved ones, gift giving, and attending Christmas parties.

It is the Christmas season after all, but did you know it's also a wedding month?

It's that time of the year when stars would decorate their social media accounts not just with holiday greetings but also with throwback wedding photos and sweet anniversary messages for their better half.

Instagram, indeed, has been playing an active role in chronicling life's celebrations, and, in part, is responsible for this list of December weddings.

Here they are arranged according to the stars' wedding date.

Bianca Gonzalez and JC Intal: December 4, 2014

The host and the cager tied the knot in Lagen Island Resort, El Nido, Palawan.

Bianca commemorated the day on Instagram with this post.

"Thank you @jcintal7 for marrying me two years ago in paradise!

"I am faaaar from being an ideal wife. Hindi ako magaling o mahilig magluto, magulo ang gamit ko, natututo pa lang ako mag-manage ng bahay, masungit ako lalo pag antok, nangangapa pa rin ako kay Lucia, and the list goes on and on.
