  • The last week of the “Wedding Month” was capped off with a trending story that made the netizens say, “Sana all!”: a couple from Valenzuela City received a total of P1.2M cash as a gift on their wedding day!

    We were already happy when we receive some appliances on our wedding dayrice cooker, microwave, washing machineso imagine receiving P1.2M in cash!

    “Ang sabi lang po nila pasasayahin po nila kami sa araw ng aming kasal,” May Jean Acosta, the bride in the trending story said as she shares that the gift was from their siblings and relatives. 

    And indeed, they really made the couple happy.

    “Halo-halong emotions po eh, masaya,” she said, apparently a little overwhelmed by the surprise made on their wedding day. Who wouldn’t feel a little shocked, right?


    The couple has no idea about the gift, that’s why it was such a surprise for them. Geraldine Hizole, owner of Gee’s Events Management Solutions, the couple’s wedding coordinator said that they didn’t even put in the invitation that “cash” was preferred by the couple as a gift. The couple is already happy that they are spending their special day with their loved ones. Gifts or no gifts, their presence is already enough.

    In the traditional part of the wedding reception, the couple’s first dance, the host suddenly announced that their siblings have a gift for them.

    This is the part where we usually put cash bills in the bride’s wedding gown, and when someone put in a couple of one-thousand peso bills, the crowd goes crazy. 

    But in this wedding, not only did the crowd went crazy. Netizens went wild, too. 

    The host jokingly asked, “Six digits ba yan?”, and we all know it wasn’t.

    The first installment of the P1.2M cash came from a luggage. It was tucked inside, and as it was being taken out, a cape full of one-thousand bills appeared. The “money cape” was then put in the bride while they were still doing their first dance. The couple is already in shock and awe as the wedding host called another relative, holding another “money cape” full of one-thousand bills.

    To cap it off, a bouquet full of cash was then given to the bride. 

    Every visitor’s jaw dropped as the couple ended up having two “money capes” and a bouquet full of cash.

    All in all, the cash amounted to P1.2M. The gift was from the groom and bride’s siblings and relatives.

    “Dahil marami din daw naitulong si groom sa kanila (siblings and relatives), kaya bilang kapalit, yan ang naisip nila,” the wedding coordinator, Geraldine Hizole shared the reason why the relatives thought of giving the couple the gift.

    When asked about their plans on how to use the money, May Jean Acosta said, “Pang-negosyo po.” The couple knew that using the money as a captial for business will be more beneficial in the future, especially as they are starting their life as a family.


    Their story already captured the netizen’s attention, and is already trending in social media.

    They were also interviewed by a news channel and appeared on TV.

    Indeed, their wedding day was filled with so much love and surprise. Not only the amount of money was important, but the love shown by their family was more captivating.

    To the newly weds, congratulations! And from all of us, “Sana all!”
