MANILA – Jodi Sta. Maria will be wearing an Avel Bacudio creation for her character's much-awaited wedding on “Be Careful With My Heart” this Friday.

In a video clip released by ABS-CBN on Thursday, Bacudio said he made sure that Sta. Maria’s gown will reflect the personality of her character, Maya.

“May gown si Mamang na binigay kay Maya. May parte doon na ginamit ko talaga. 'Yung tatlong designs, kahit anong piliin niya, lalabas pa rin ang personality niya. Pero isa 'yung gustong gusto niya talaga,” he said.

Bacudio said he wants Richard Yap, who plays Sir Chief, to realize that Maya is the perfect girl for him when he sees her in the beautiful gown.

Yap, for his part, will be wearing a suit in medium blue with shades of grey.

Giving life to the wedding’s motif, the couple’s entourage will be wearing tiffany blue gowns or grey suits.

“Yung embroidery nung gowns sunflower. Binigyan din ng ‘Be Careful With My Heart’ yung mga young designers para ipakita ang talent nila,” Bacudio said.

Meanwhile, the show's director Jeffrey Jeturian revealed that they exerted extra effort in searching for the perfect place to hold the wedding of Maya and Sir Chief.

“Doon din actually ikinasal 'yung mom niya (Maya). 'Yun ang link ni Maya sa simbahan na napili namin. Kinonsider namin 'yung mga Ilocos churches. We went to Tarlac, Pampanga, Laguna, Quezon, Rizal. Ang napili namin Basilica de Taal,” he said.

Aside from being simple to reflect the couple’s personality, Jeturian said the structure of the church is also breathtaking.

“Kapag tinignan mo ang simbahan, mamangha ka. Ito na ang katuparan ng fantasy ng lahat ng nanonood ng teleseryeng ito. Natupad lahat ng pangarap ni Maya,” he said.

On Thursday, the hashtag “Be Careful With My Heart My Fairytale Wedding” made it to the worldwide Twitter trending topics as netizens discussed the upcoming wedding.

The most recent episode of the series showed both families of Maya and Sir Chief preparing for the wedding. The viewers, however, did not get to catch a glimpse of the bride in her gown.

In previous episodes, the couple are seen attending pre-marital counseling, as they also held bachelor and bachelorette parties.

The much-awaited wedding of Maya and Sir Chief will air on ABS-CBN on Friday at 11:45 a.m.
