Maxene Magalona is among the handful of local celebrities who chose a Vera Wang creation for their wedding dress.
It was a gift from her mother-in-law, veteran editor Millet Martinez-Mananquil.
On January 11, 2022, the 35-year-old ABS-CBN actress looked back on the time she tried it on.
Here's her full caption published as is: "This was the first time I got to try on my wedding dress from @verawangmanila [emoji] I remember feeling so elated and blissful seeing myself wear something so delicately beautiful.
"I’ve always dreamt of wearing @verawang @verawanggang on my wedding day and it was my sweet mother-in-law @milletmartinezmananquil who made that dream come true.
"I just want to offer her my sincere gratitude for being the kind, generous and selfless soul that she has always been to the lucky people in her life.
"We have all been touched and moved by her and I just want to post this photo so that she can see how happy she has always made me.
"I’m so blessed that I met her and felt her love and acceptance from the very beginning.
"P.S. Thank you so much to ate Amalia of @verawangmanila for helping me with all my fittings and adjustments! [emoji]"
Maxene also reminisced about her Tiffany & Co. bridal shower organized by her mom Pia Magalona and attended by closest friends and family members.
Maxene wrote in the caption: "Gratitude truly changes the way we see life. Today, I’m feeling extra grateful for all the blessings, lessons and memories that God has blessed me with in this lifetime and I just want to share this overwhelming emotion with the world.
"To be able to have a bridal shower at @tiffanyandco with the most special women in my life was such a sweet treat. [emoji]
"Thank you so much to my Mom @piamagalona for organizing this for me. Life is never perfect but the love that we have for other souls can be.
"We can love others the way Jesus loved and died on the cross for us. We can choose to love others the way God loves us—perfectly and wholly. [white heart emoji]
"I see each and every one of you and appreciate you for the love that you shared with me. I am truly grateful and honored. God bless you all [emoji]"
Maxene posted the throwback photos in time for her and her husband Robbie Mananquil's fourth wedding anniversary.
The couple were married in an all-white beach wedding ceremony held at Shangri-La's Boracay Resort & Spa on January 11, 2018.
At press time, both Maxene and Robbie have yet to address the rumors.
