Wedding TV Shows
July 24, 2008
I love taking a behind the scenes look at what goes on at other people’s weddings. So much time and effort put into one day, and it’s so interesting to see how different people handle the pressure. Not to mention the amazing ideas and level of detail each bride brings to their wedding. It’s always thrilling to watch something come together so perfectly for one of the biggest days of their lives.
Platinum Weddings on WE tv, Sundays 10/9c. An inside look at the most fabulous and over the top weddings you’ve ever seen. Everything is extremely lavish and so spectacular, it’s fun to live vicariously through the planning of these million dollar weddings.
Bridezillas on WE tv, Sundays 9/8c. I can’t watch this show too much because it can make me depressed. These high strung brides lose their cool on what’s supposed to be the most wonderful day of their lives, taking it out on everyone in their path. However, it was funny when this one bride made a toast at her reception (after her in-laws showed up extremely late for her ceremony), and stated something to the effect of “Thank you all for coming today. I’m sorry the ceremony started so late. It WILL be dealt with…” while her husband was whispering for her to stop.
Rich Bride, Poor Bride on WE tv. These couples set themselves on a budget and we get to watch them through the planning process to see who’s sticking to their budget or not. See if they can plan the wedding of their dreams without draining their wallets.
Say Yes to the Dress on the TLC Channel Tuesdays 8/7c. My favorite show on the list. The staff from the famous bridal salon, Kleinfeld, gives us a look their team of specialists and what goes on from the initial consultation with the bride all the way to the final dress fitting. I really love how these brides always end up going with their own gut feelings. There’s always a friend or a mom or relative who tries to make her go in a different direction with her gown, and it’s so great when the bride is true to herself and chooses the dress that she wants.
Whose Wedding is it Anyway on the Style Network. Wedding planning as seen from the wedding planners’ perspective. I enjoy watching these planners come up with creative ideas for brides who are on a tight budget and how well they handle themselves in challenging situations.
