When asked if it’s true that the gown costs about P1 million, Ogie denied it. "Alam ko na meron siyang mga gown na ganoon kamahal but I think hindi naman ganoon kamahal yung kukunin namin."

Monique is a Filipina designer based in Los Angeles. She is known for her ready-to-wear and bridal designs.

She designed the gowns of Britney Spears, Guiliana De Pandi, Kristen Stewart, Carrie Underwood and more.

Her parents are Michel and Amparito Lhuillier of Cebu. Their family owns a chain of pawnshops all over the country with Ogie as one of the endorsers.

“Malalapit sila (Lhuillier) sa akin and when I spoke to them, very happy and excited sila,” he said.

Michel and Amparito will also be one of the primary sponsors on their wedding. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
