Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia revealed that they've been preparing for their beach wedding scheduled for summer 2018. Asked whey they want a beach wedding, Coleen explained: "We're both beach bums and we love the beach, and it has a lot to do with our personalities, our story, and just who we are."

It's Showtime host Billy Crawford and fiancée Coleen Garcia attended their last Star Magic Ball as boyfriend-girlfriend on Saturday night, September 30.

Next year, they will be walking down the red carpet of the Kapamilya network's annual ball as a married couple. 

Billy and Coleen are scheduled to tie the knot during the summer of 2018 with a beach wedding. (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press caught up with the couple at the red carpet of the Star Magic Ball last night, and Billy admitted that the thought passed their minds while preparing for the event.

He said, "We talked about that, bago ang kasal, nag-Star Magic Ball."

Coleen, on the other hand, expressed her excitement because the gown she'll be wearing next is her wedding dress.

The 25-year-old actress said, "We're very excited, kasi the next gown I'll be putting on will be my wedding gown.

"So we're just really looking forward to that big day."

The Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin star, however, was tight-lipped when asked who designed her wedding gown.

Coleen narrated, "It's a secret. Actually, I haven't seen the designer yet, in person.

"So, I'm actually literally just about to meet with her very soon."


BEACH WEDDING. PEP and other members of the press asked the couple why they chose to have a beach wedding.

Coleen explained, "We're both beach bums and we love the beach, and it has a lot to do with our personalities, our story, and just who we are."

Billy added, "We're just really easygoing and we really just want it to be relaxed and laid back, but enjoy ourselves as well."

The couple noted that their wedding preparations are smooth sailing, but Coleen admitted that she's "very OC, but only with myself."

Billy added, "She's very organized, she's very OC, but she's super chill. Ako yung mas nase-stress.

"I think I'm the girl in the relationship."

Does Coleen have her bridezilla moments?

She answered, "Not at all, maybe none so far. But I have a feeling everything's gonna run smoothly."

THE PREPARATIONS. Now months away from their big day, Coleen and Billy admitted that they've been preparing to get their beach bodies ready.


Coleen revealed, "[Billy's] been dieting!" She added, "I'm also trying to tone my arms."

Billy further quipped, "She doesn't need any toning, to be honest with you. 

"Ako yung napapahiya e, when she tones up."

Billy proudly said that he already lost 40 lbs. from his previous weight which is 200 lbs., and looked visibly leaner during the ball. 

The 35-year-old singer/host said this was the product of playing basketball regularly and sticking to his ketogenic diet.

He narrated, "I actually haven't worked out yet, I've been playing basketball maybe two to three times a week.

"And then after that, ketogenic diet and my nutritionist is right here."

Billy added, "We make our own food, as well."

Aside from working out and dieting, Coleen said they're also taking good care of their skin for their wedding day.

Coleen said, "We're just trying to take care of our skin because the wedding's gonna be on the beach.

"And we don't wanna wear too much makeup on our big day."
