- Wedding: April 2012
One of my MOHs suggested that I apply to be on the show about a month ago. I was very reluctant because I have watched the show many times and often thought “where do they find these people?” and “who the hell would do this?”. My cons were outweighing my pros, but I did it anyways. I didn’t go into too much detail with my answers and figured they would never even consider me because of it. I only told my FH and mom about it since I was still hesitant about the whole thing. Well, turns out they must of liked something I said because I got a phone call the other day to set up a Skype interview. So now my “I doubt I’ll even be considered” turned into a “holy shit, what am I going to do?”. First person I told right away was one of my bridesmaids. She thinks exactly like I do and expressed the same concerns I did. Then I called my FH (who didn’t seem too thrilled by the idea when I filled out the application) and to my surprise, he was ecstatic. Next on my list to call was my mom (who, also, wasn’t very thrilled by the idea in the beginning) and to my surprise again, totally changed her attitude and was all for it. I told a few more family members and friends to get their opinions and they were all TOTALLY for it (probably only because they might have a chance to be on tv). I know it is a “once in a lifetime” opportunity, but getting married is too. I want our day to be special and sacred. Plus, I am not to keen about having three snotty bitches tearing apart my day that I have been stressing over and planning for the past year. I’m already afraid my wedding is going to suck and I don’t want people to say it does on TV and have it played over and over again on Sunday morning reruns. The only reason I would possibly consider it is if they gave you a video of your wedding day (not the tv show) as a consolation gift, but I cannot find anywhere what you get if you don’t win the honeymoon. I have many people telling me to just do it and that it will be so much fun, etc…including my FH. My interview is next week, I know it’s only the beginning of the process and I still might not get picked, but I need to decide if I want to continue or not.
