Heart Evangelista To Walk Down The Aisle AloneKapuso actress Heart Evangelista is about to tie the knot in less than a month. She will marry Senator Chiz Escudero at the Balesin Island in Quezon Province on February 15, a day after her 30th birthday.
Heart revealed that her parents, Cecile and Rey Ongpauco, are not attending her Balesin wedding. This despite the fact they have already reconciled their differences over their daughter's decision to marry the senator.
The actress said her wedding should not be a deadline for Senator Chiz and her parents to meet again. There are other times they can settle their differences, she added.
Her parents won't also be attending her Manila reception, which will happen a week after the wedding. Heart said, though, that ther sisters will be at her wedding.
She shared that she'll be walking down the aisle alone, and she's going to do this to stand by her decision to marry the senator.
Heart has tips for would-be brides. She said it's important for their grooms to be supportive during the preparation for the wedding.
A lot of girls who get married find that their fiances are nowhere beside them while prepping up for the wedding. Heart is lucky that Senator Chiz is very hands-on with their wedding.
They talk about all the things. They are practical. They think about the wedding aftermath, when reality will finally sink in.
It's important to have good communication with your groom, Heart said, so that everything will be organized.
Heart said she learned a lot about herself while she was with Senator Chiz. She grew up with everything being given to her, so the senator thought her to appreciate the little everyday things.
He always tells her that what's important in a marriage is their life after the wedding, and not how grand the ceremony went.
She learned to be mature in the relationship, as well as to be practical. This is a turnaround for her, and Heart realized she's happier this way.
She appreciates that her fiance is a very practical man. At first, she was so stressed because the senator is killing all her ideas for the wedding but in the end, they compromised and Heart got the flowers she wanted for her wedding.
In fact, since there will be a Manila reception, they are freezing the flowers, and using them again.
