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.

- Wedding: June 2012 - Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards
I’m pretty sure there was someone on here at one point who took part in the interview process.
I have to imagine that brides have asked about getting the raw footage before…but I also have to imagine that a lot of the footage is of the other girls, right? Anyway, it can’t hurt to ask…again, I bet they’ve heard that question before.
I have definitely seen episodes where the girls were positive and fun. Perhaps you just have to do your best to make that the mission during that initial meeting (if you make it to that point).
I feel like the “nice girls” win more often than the hyper competitive ones, anyway. 🙂

Oh I know. It’s just the beginning of the process I’m sure. I just need to decide if I want to continue (not waste my time or theirs) or not.

I’ve always wondered… what do you do if you don’t win the honeymoon? I mean… if you count on winning and then you don’t, you end up with no honeymoon at all! And if you go ahead and plan one on your own, then you end up with two? What if you don’t have enough vacation days? Haha.
I agree though… it would be weird having three girls there solely to judge your wedding!

You could always go on to the interview and say no if they chose you. The interview may help you better decide what you want to do.

I say do it! The comments the girls make on that show are just to make it interesting and because they want to win the honeymoon. At the end of the day, you’ll come out with probably 3 new friends and free videography of your wedding. As long as you have thick skin and can take criticism, I think you’ll probably enjoy it!

So cool! I filled out an application also but I must have been too boring. I didn’t think I would win but I liked the idea of free videography! hehe Good thing they didn’t contact me cuz my Fiance says there is no way in H E double hockey sticks that he would go on TV. LOL
Keep us posted!

The interview will really help you get a feel for the process and how you feel. I think it would be a lot of fun to do it, but I’m way to shy and I never would. Think of being able to take the episode and showing your kids down the road, how cool would that be?
