Rodjun Cruz and Dianne Medina have already picked a date for their wedding: December 21, 2019. With almost two years to prepare, the couple was asked, why the long engagement?

Rodjun reasoned out that time flies fast, “Hindi ko nga namalayan na mag-iisang taon na, e. 'Tsaka para mas makaipon pa po.”

And why December 21?

The actor said, "Kasi gusto namin, 'di ba festive pag Pasko 'tapos may mga kamag-anak na nasa ibang bansa na uuwi.

He also shared that while they celebrate their monthsary on the 23rd of every month, they opted to marry on the 21st instead as the date falls on a weekend, and isn't as close to Christmas day. "Malapit na sa Pasko so baka maraming hindi makapunta so tinarget namin na 21."

The 30-year-old actor proposed to the 31-year-old actress on October 10, 2017, after 11 years of togetherness.

He told PEP.ph in an interview, “Tiniming ko talaga na 30th birthday ko yun and siyempre gusto ko ring ma-surprise si Dianne.’"

How do they manage to keep their relationship going strong all these years?

For Rodjun, it is the most natural thing in the world, "Siyempre, kapag love niyo naman ang bawat isa, ganun talaga yun, e."

Rodjun and Diane will exchange "I dos" at the Minor Basilica and Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, a.k.a. Manila Cathedral. They are eyeing either Sofitel Philippine Plza Manila or Manila Hotel for their wedding reception.

But Leo Dominguez, his manager, and Perry Lansigan, Dianne's manager, will definitely be part of the ceremony.

“Best man ko yung dalawang kapatid ko, si Rayver 'tsaka yung kuya ko po [Omar].

“Sa artista, siyempre mga barkada ko, sila Alden [Richards], groomsman.”

Kristoffer Martin, Jose Sarasola, and Marco Alcaraz are also among his groomsmen.
