Starting April 26, Boracay will be closed down to tourists for six months, and undergo an environmental rehabilitation.
This could lead to at least 36,000 people losing their jobs and over PHP56 billion loss in revenues.
As the target date looms, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) listed down some of the grandest weddings the island has witnessed over the past years.
Boracay, indeed, has become the dream wedding destination of our local celebrities.

Francis and Mark celebrated their love with an art deco-inspired wedding by the pool side of The Lind last March 18, 2017.

MIRIAM QUIAMBAO AND CLAUDIO RONDINELLI
It was in 2002 when the former beauty queen first met her former husband, Hong Kong-based Italian businessman and restaurateur Claudio Rondinelli.
It was love at first sight, the beauty queen said, and their whirlwind romance led to a beach wedding in 2004.
Miriam stayed with Claudio in Hong Kong, where the latter owns a number of restaurants.
But in June 2006, she returned to the Philippines and announced their separation, citing lack of time and third party as the reasons.
Miriam is now happily married to Christian motivational speaker and author Roberto “Ardy” Roberto.
The couple tied the knot in March 2014 in Tagaytay.
TRICIA CENTENERA AND GAB VALENCIANO
Boracay also witnessed the union of Gab and Tricia.

This was the couple's third wedding ceremony.
Gab and Tricia first got married in the U.S. in 2014. It was followed by a garden wedding at Tagaytay Highlands Golf Club on March 27, 2015.
A year later, the couple announced their split, which, according to Tricia, was caused by a third party on Gab's side.
EULA VALDEZ AND RICHARD LITONJUA
The actress married the Australian-based electrical engineer in Boracay in 2003.
The couple, however, announced their separation in 2008.
In her previous interview with Startalk, Eula said their long-distance relationship didn't work out.
Eula and her current partner, model Rocky Salumbidez, have been together for nine years.
