Lovely Abella couldn't be more grateful to her "Hello, Love, Goodbye" co-star Kathryn Bernardo for giving her a wedding dress as a gift.
The dress, which she wore at her wedding to partner Benj Manalo last January 23, was gifted to her by Kathryn two days before her wedding. It was designed by famous designer Steph Tan.
"Mabait talaga si Kath. Saksi ako sa lahat ng 'yan at niregalo niya sa akin ang napakagandang wedding gown na suot ko kagabi na gawa ni @stephtancouture," she wrote in the caption.
Lovely said that the actress insisted on giving it to her as a gift when she initially declined her offer.
"Sabi ko, My Ga, 'wag na ako na, pero sabi niya regalo daw niya. 'Wag tayong tumatanggi sa blessings, 'yan ang natutunan ko kasi 'yan ang way nila to share their blessings at para lalo sila ma-bless. Kaya sabi ko buti NAIHABOL kasi 2 days na lang kasal ko na," she recalled.
Kathryn was also very hands-on in the details of the dress according to Lovely. She shared, "Saksi ang aking mga kaibigan [ko] na sina @pernellagonzaga at @kelly.harris_ kung gaano ako inalagaan ni Kath para gumanda ako sa mismong kasal ko, siya ang nag-detalye ng gown ko at talagang sinama niya si @janaranilla para i-check lahat kung okay sa akin."
"Salamat sa time and effort Ga, humabol pa 'yan para lang makita niya kung fit sa akin at maganda sa akin kaya MY GA @bernardokath, thank you for everything. Salamat sa mabuti mong PUSO, 'di ko makakalimutan ang regalo mo at kung 'di dahil sayo, baka wala akong maisuot. Mahal kita, kayo ni Bal (Daniel Padilla)," she added.
Congratulations, Lovely and Benj!
