Fairy tales have implanted a certain longing for girls to get married in a grandiose, Disney-princess kind of way. And although there is nothing wrong with that at all (because Cinderella-ish weddings are also awesome! ), not all girls grow up to be the bride they thought they would be.

Meet The Rebellious Bride. She finds that she longs for more than the usual wedding lists and lusts. She craves for something new, something to defy in order to define (her personality, her groom's...their bond). 

The Rebellious Bride is not aiming for a "timeless" wedding. She is aiming to capture her wedding in a "time capsule." A perfect 'screen capture' or 'Polaroid' of how she and husband are like during that point in time. She wants to be able to tell her grandchildren the story of her purple bridal dress or how she insisted on a wedding inside a children's museum.

The Rebellious Bride and her groom aren't exactly like those two perfect porcelain couple on top of the cake. In fact, they might even forgo that cake topper or go for a chocolate tower instead. They bend the rules not for the sake of bending it, but in order to be who they are--imperfect people who found someone perfect for them :)

We dedicate this blog to all the brides who have the guts to say, "I don't care what other people say." Because of you, we will work our asses off to find inspirations beyond the cookie-cutter weddings. We applaud you for even looking at this site and embracing being a Rebellious Bride. And once again, we are not competing with the Traditional Bride. Think of this as an Alcoholic Anonymous for Brides where you realize you're not alone in this world. Our dear Rebellious Bride...we are here for you--you and your creative *topak!


Being a Rebellious Bride is not about defying convention per se, just so people would say "Shet ang cool mo!" No. That's not quite it. Being a Rebellious Bride, is about creating your own rules and your own traditions for YOUR OWN WEDDING because you feel it in your heart that this is what YOU and YOUR GROOM want and not what society, your parents, or the wedding magazines have carved out for you.

The Rebellious Bride is an empowered bride who can cleverly "outwit" supposed wedding rules---not to spite or disregard the people around her. On the contrary, she challenges the so-called wedding rules to be able to have her own dream wedding because she already grew up being told on what to do, trying to be the perfect daughter, the perfect friend, the perfect Catholic school girl and for once in her life, she wants her own happy day where she can be her pure self without walking on thin glass.

Just because The Rebellious Bride is rebellious, it does not mean she is a bridezilla who does not have breeding. The Rebellious Bride is poised, classy, and chic -- she just has more guts and pizazz =P

The Rebellious Bride, is not out there to "compete" with the Traditional Bride. She just wants to have her own voice. The Traditional Bride already has millions of references and support to help her create her traditional wedding. The Rebellious Bride on the other hand, needs to search hard to look for her own niche to help her unleash her rebellious side, and give her the strength to carry out her "Rebellious Plans" --mwahahahahahah!

Is this the first time that you stumbled upon our blog? If yes, then here are some "support" materials for you. Some would say we are bad influences but we'd like to think we are just teaching brides to be more inquisitive and be more confident with their own decisions--without being bridezillas, of course.
