So I was flipping through channels last night and happened to pass E! as Bridalplasty was starting (must have been a re-run from Sunday’s premier). Having heard about the show – and thinking the premise was terrible – I decided to watch and see if it was really as bad as it sounded.
All I can say is OMG those women are ridiculous!! Some of them I can understand the desire for some plastic surgery (ex. the girl who lost almost 100 lbs and now has a lot of excess stretched out skin – I can’t blame her for her desire to remove that). But many of the girls are tiny and have almost no fat on their bodies and seem to think that they need all kinds of liposuction! Seriously, what fat is there to remove?!? I don’t think that kind of mentality should be encouraged.
That said, knowing my penchant for being entertained by terrible TV, I’ll probably end up following it to see how ridiculous looking some of these women end up.
Did anyone else watch the show? What did you think? And will you continue to watch?

I think its kinda annoying that the end result is a “hollywood style” wedding. I think a lot of the girls (especially the thin ones) just want a free wedding but don’t really need plastic surgery.
Some of them on the show are also really dumb. I can’t imagine staying away from my Fiance for 4 months for a “chance” to win some money.

I haven’t watched the show. To be honest, I saw an ad of it in the magazine and there was a bride holding a bouquet of needles, and other surgical instruments. That totally turned me off! Yuck!

I refuse to watch it out of principle. It is just a horrible show that is advertising the “need” for plastic surgery on perfecty beautiful women.

I watched it just to see how awful it was. Honestly, I never watch reality shows. My Boyfriend or Best Friend was with me.
It was horrifying. I won’t watch it again. The girl at the end who was crying and said that it was like hearing an angel speaking to her from heaven really just made me sad.

I haven’t seen the show, but the concept sounds ridiculous to me.
I hate the message that this sends to women about being both a “beautiful” woman and the “perfect bride.” It is so wrong. I’m not against elective procedures, but I don’t think that they should be advertised in that manner. I’m not trying to “hate” on reality tv, but it keeps getting worse each year.
I feel so sorry for our future generations – I’m starting to wonder how our daughters/grand daughters will have any self-esteem or brains. At this rate, it seems like we’re going to have a bunch of Jersey Shore, Bridalplasty, and Real Housewives of __(insert city)__ wannabe’s running around Yikes! Better start practicing your parenting skills now, ladies! Kidding. Sorta.

No. I haven’t seen it and refuse to watch shows like that. I can’t get into most wedding shows to begin with but the idea behind this particular one is extremely offensive and sad. The only message it sends is that if a bride is not willing to change her looks to resemble someone who is not herself then she has no business getting married since “only attractive men and women deserve that right” which is BS. America is already obsessed with changing to please others instead of being proud of what Mother Nature intended for them to have and this only perpetuates the ideology that has taken over that “no one looks or is good enough” unless they destroy their looks in the process and become someone else entirely. Heaven forbid any teenage girl watch that as they are already taught how to be insecure 24/7 with the garbage they are bombarded by with the media aimed at their own age range, and some women never outgrow that insecurity when they reach adulthood.

I saw the end of the first episode and at the end, the hostess says (to the girl leaving) something like…”You won’t be as beautiful…on your wedding day”
I was like WHAT?! It is just a cruel, ridiculous premise for “entertainment” and completely feeds the stereotype that all brides are self-centered, ego-maniacs.

@PinkPinstripes: “You won’t be as beautiful…on your wedding day” — WHATTT?! They actually said that at the end of the episode? WOW.

This show is a little ridiculous. I saw the first 2 episodes, but definitely won’t be watching anymore now that Jessica is gone (the one who had lumps removed from her breast and wanted surgery because they were lopsided/had scars).. she seemed the most genuine. That girl Jenessa is so catty!

gahhh! i watched this last night to see what all the fuss is about… it’s as awful as i thought it would be. the whole premise really irritates me. isn’t it sad? we aren’t good enough the way we are – and the way our guys fell in love with us – we must change ourselves. only then, will we have the perfect wedding. pffffft!

I am so glad that someone else saw it lol!!! I saw it on the channel listing and wondered what it was. After about 20 seconds of watching it I realized how stupid it was. I walked away to do some things, but left it on. Fi came in freaking out saying that it was the stupidest show he has ever seen and said “Babe, I am cool with your SYTTD and I don’t mind watching it with you now and then, but THAT is absolutely ridiculas!” Then he continued with his rant about how that is not what a wedding is about for twenty minutes! He is normally very calm and collected, (I am the freak-er out-er in the relationship) but apparently this seriously set him off!

i’ve never seen the show, and i will refuse to watch it. don’t women realize that if your Fiance didn’t love you just as you are, he wouldn’t have proposed to you in the first place? do women EVER think about that??

I watched the first episode and haven’t watched it since. I was intrigued at first, but quickly lost interest 5 minutes in. It is very disturbing to me.
