If you have been following Anne Curtis on social media, you would know that she is a part of a solid barkada composed of female celebrities dubbed as 'it girls.'
But during her wedding day last November 12, many got curious when they realized one 'it girl' seems to be missing from the photos and it's stylist Liz Uy.
Yet before people start to speculate on why she was not able to attend the actress-host's momentuous event, Liz took to Instagram to greet Anne and Erwan for their union.
"I couldn't be happier seeing you in that beautiful wedding dress (Anne). Congratulations #thewanforanne. Wishing you both never-ending love and a happy family life! I am there in love and in spirit," she wrote in the caption.
Liz's sister Laureen Uy was spotted in the wedding.
Anne Curtis’ It’s Showtime co-hosts were almost complete at her wedding except for Amy Perez, Billy Crawford and his fiancee Coleen Garcia. Netizens were curious as to why they were not at the wedding.
Coleen answered them and said they had work commitments.

Maria Isabel Lopez recently made headlines after sharing on Facebook that she opened the lane intended for the ASEAN delegates. This didn’t sit well with the MMDA.
She then apologized and said she’s only human.
“The end doesn’t justify the means but I needed to answer the call of nature because I had been stuck in traffic for three hours. Sorry, but I’m only human,” she told Philippine Daily Inquirer. (‘Sorry, I’m only human’)
The beauty queen also explained that she asked permission to an MMDA officer.
“He said no because I didn’t have a pass. But I argued that other vehicles—taxi cabs, buses and motorcycles—had already entered the lane.”
She added: “[Then] the MMDA officer left in the middle of our conversation because of the taxis and buses behind me. This prompted me to remove the cones.”
“By the time I did it, the MMDA had allowed other vehicles to pass through the Asean lane,” she said, adding that she was speaking out “to make the story complete.”
