Netizens went abuzz and social media timelines went wild the moment it was revealed that Wildflower‘s Ivy Aguas (Maja Salvador) is wearing a black bridal gown for her wedding to Arnaldo Ardiente (RK Bagatsing). We all know what black signifies in our culture and wearing the color to weddings is scandalizing for conservative ones, especially if you are the bride. This is why it came as a shock to the wedding guests that Ivy came in an all-black ensemble, including her nail polish and heels. Her bride-in-black getup was the perfect representation of looking at the wedding as a dark point in Ivy’s life. As she said in her head earlier, “Oo, nakaitim ako. Dahil ito lang ang kulay na nababagay sa okasyong ito.” (Yes, I’m wearing black. Because this is the only color that matches this occasion.)
“This is indeed the wildest wedding on television. If you already went wild when you saw my gown, what more when you watch our full episode on Wednesday? I cannot go into details but please watch out for it. I am very excited for all of you to see it,” this was how Maja gave a teaser for the episode aired last night. Based on the preview, a wilder episode is set to be shown later (August 10) featuring the continuation of the wedding ceremony. Will Emilia Ardiente (Aiko Melendez) succeed in her plot to kill Ivy? Will anyone die? Catch Wildflower before “TV Patrol” on ABS-CBN or ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167).
