This was what the media heard from Anne Curtis, who was
positioned behind the audience seats of Dolphy Theater last Wednesday, June 24. The actress took part in a short skit that was part of the grand press
conference of The Wedding.
Moments later, the entertainment media witnessed Anne—dressed in a Francis Libiran wedding gown—walking down the aisle to meet her two grooms on the show: Derek Ramsay and
The 24-year-old actress said that she screamed because she felt
nervous, as if it she were really attending her own wedding.
She further described, "'Yon na nga po noong inaayos na
'yong gown, nilagay na 'yong belo sa akin, [takes a deep breath] parang sabi
ko, ‘Wait lang, hindi naman totoo ito.'
Pero 'yon talaga ang feeling, I really felt like a bride. I was nervous, nanlalamig 'yong kamay ko

her. She told the media, "I like the

think all the cast, masasabi naming lahat na we did our best here in the
show. Siyempre, may pressure pa rin but
we're just hoping for the best," she said.
She also hoped that the viewers would like the show since
it's not really heavy drama. Anne added,
"'Yong show naman po namin is safe for the kids, it's a family show, very light
and charming. It's a pure love story na
sa tingin ko naman na people will appreciate also."
The young actress did not think that her character would
make her look more mature. She
explained, "Sa tingin ko naman hindi kami magtse-change because it's not even
that mature in that sense. 'Yong
character dito is who I am already so I think I will be able to grow up with
The Wedding is
about a rich girl named Candice (Anne), who always dreams of having a perfect wedding
with her childhood crush Warren

He continued, "That's what happened sa management, e. They watched it the first day, they previewed

they previewed it, kahit sila, they [management] were really confident sa

proud na one hundred percent Filipino ito.
Aakalain lang mo nga when you watch it, parang, ‘Hango ba ito sa isang Koreanovela?' It's not, it's original. So, I'm very confident to produce."
