COMEDY Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas and boyfriend Gerald Sibayan will exchange wedding vows on December 12.

In an exclusive interview, the Kapuso actress shared that they are now preparing for a church wedding which will be witnessed by their closest family and friends from in and out of show business.

Delas Alas disclosed that she will be wearing a white gown by Filipino designer Frederick Peralta and that close friend Marian Rivera will shoulder the expenses for her dress as a wedding gift.

She said the gown will feature a long train.

"White ang gown na isusuot ko. Mahaba ang train ng gown, baka nasa altar na ako, nasa entrance pa rin ng simbahan ang train."

The comedienne also revealed that Rivera will be their veil sponsor while her daughter Sophia will be the maid of honor and Megastar Sharon Cuneta will be the matron of honor.

Actor Alden Richard will also be part of the wedding as one of the best men alongside Sibayan's best friend, Kenneth, and Delas Alas' eldest son, Sancho.

Delas Alas said they are now in the process of securing all marriage permits and organizing the upcoming nuptial.

"Napakarami pala na dapat asikasuhin, lalo na kung meron kang previous na kasal. May Cenomar (Certificate of No Marriage Record), birth certificate, kumpil, binyag. Basta ang dami, kailangan kong pumunta sa ganito kasi two times kang magse-seminar the whole day."

To recall, the actress was married to businessman Jed Salang on April 3, 2013 but the two separated a month after and she accused the later of physical abuse.

In July last year, the Quezon City Regional Trial Court recognized her foreign divorce degree restoring her status as a single woman.

Delas Alas said she's excited for the wedding and happy to seek the blessing of the Catholic Church.

"Excited ako dahil first time ko na ikakasal sa simbahan, at saka parang, kumbaga sa faith ko, wala na akong pagkakamali dahil ikakasal na ako," she ended. (SunStar Philippines)
