This was what the media heard from Anne Curtis, who waspositioned 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 pressconference 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 andZanjoe Marudo.
The 24-year-old actress said that she screamed because she feltnervous, 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 sabiko, ‘Wait lang, hindi naman totoo ito.' Pero 'yon talaga ang feeling, I really felt like a bride. I was nervous, nanlalamig 'yong kamay kokahit na alam ko na hindi naman sa real life. Pero the moment I put on the dress, and the veil, hawak ko na 'yongbouquet, it's almost real. 'Yon angnaramdaman ko."
For Anne, playing the role of the bride named Candice in The Wedding was something really new forher. She told the media, "I like thestory and I thought parang it's easy to work and nae-excite nga ako sacharacter ko din. It's different from Dyosa, it's different from Maging Sino Ka Man. I'm happy to do it, no regrets talaga."
Anne admitted that although her new primetime series was excitingfor her to do, it also put a pressure on her whether the televiewers would likethis original wedding series of ABS-CBN.
"Siyempre there's pressure kasi we also don't know kungmae-enjoy ng viewers ang show. But Ithink all the cast, masasabi naming lahat na we did our best here in theshow. Siyempre, may pressure pa rin butwe're just hoping for the best," she said.
She also hoped that the viewers would like the show sinceit's not really heavy drama. Anne added,"'Yong show naman po namin is safe for the kids, it's a family show, very lightand charming. It's a pure love story nasa tingin ko naman na people will appreciate also."
The young actress did not think that her character wouldmake her look more mature. Sheexplained, "Sa tingin ko naman hindi kami magtse-change because it's not eventhat mature in that sense. 'Yongcharacter dito is who I am already so I think I will be able to grow up withher."
The Wedding isabout a rich girl named Candice (Anne), who always dreams of having a perfect weddingwith her childhood crush Warren(played by Derek). However, he had toleave for the States.

So, sheagreed to get married with Marlon (played by Zanjoe), a construction worker inCandice's family's construction firm.
The conflict comes when Warren comes back to fulfill his promise toCandice. The young lady is now tornbetween two grooms.

Whenthey previewed it, kahit sila, they [management] were really confident samaterial. I believe, kayo rin, you'll beproud 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."
