Part of being a Rebellious Bride is changing the perspective of being a bridezilla and being a bundle-of-nerves-bride.
And sometimes, it's not really our fault.
When you are constantly fawned over, when parents are nitpicking, when you hear unnecessary comments, and you have a dozen of photogs and videogs trying to catch your every blink, it can get very, very, stressful that it sucks out your positive energy.
So sometimes, for the sake of a bride's sanity, serenity, and happy vibes, you should create new rules.
Never mind if this might offend a few parents but if you can just explain it to them as clearly and as honestly as you can, then they should be able to understand why you want to "CHILL" during your wedding preps. If they are not the type to understand, make up some excuse and ask your coordinator to deal with it.
Here's how our Rebellious-Bride-of-the-Hour remained cool, calm, and collected on her big day. As you will see in these BTS (behind-the-scenes) clips, Mica was super CHILL. Instead of having preps at a hotel, she opted to stay in her own condo. She is very much close to her family and has soooo many friends--yet she decided to do her preps on her own. And she walked around Makati to just emote and be "baliw-baliwan", then after her "alone time", her family and a few friends just dropped by to say Hi.
There's an "extra" clip in this video where you will see one of Mica & Marc's awesome surprise reception ideas: A Flash Mob! Here goes! These raw clips were captured via my iPod touch, using the 8MM app. Forgive the amateur technique but in fairness, it looks very "Wonder Years" heheh :)
