    Hmmmmmm… If they paid everything I might let them lol!

    Except if it was something ultra tacky or something.

    @renwoman:  If it means that my entire wedding is paid for, then yes, I guess I probably would.  Even if the viewers vote for ridiculous things that we would never choose ourselves, at least it would be a story to tell the grandkids!

    Nope nope nope.

    I am too much of a control freak. I’d rather scrimp and save and get exactly what my FI and I want instead of leaving it up to chance.

    No, because it’s what OTHERS want. It wouldn’t reflect who FI and I are. I mean, we’re not going to be married to TV viewers, are we??!!

    Also, it gives others a chance to advertise their products at the expense of our embarrassment. Thanks, but no thanks.

    No… I wouldn’t mind having strangers pick some stuff like venue, food, maybe… But dress and honeymoon would be a a HELL NO.

    Oh, I missed that it included the honeymoon. In that case, no, I couldn’t do it. I don’t mind if someone else plans the wedding, but I couldn’t bear not having input on the honeymoon!

    @renwoman:  Forget about tv, I’d hire people in real life to set up and put on a wedding.

    “Personalization” is entirely over-rated when in the end, things look pretty much the same from wedding to wedding. I would choose the venu but after that–mail me suggested colors, a menu, and wine list for approval and we are done! They can choose the cake. I would want veto power over flowers (no astromeria ever!) but if I chose a wedding floral designer whose work I liked, he/she would have free rein with the plant material we both agreed on.

    I would take advice from a wedding planner of 3 photorphers, and I’d choose one based on website portfolios.

    I wouldn’t have “tastings” or meetings with any of these vendors because I’d be too busy living my life.

    I would want to buy a dress and show up at the wedding site ready to get married.

    @Pinkmoon:  I agree, I’d have to choose my dress. And the honeymoon–step back Loretta! *I* will be deciding where we go, a numbskull wedding planner would send us to some dull Caribbean resort when I’d want to go to Paris or Morroco or Bhuthan.
