I thought it was unfair when the (pakistani?) bride spent 70K…. it’s like, why is she competing? She can freakin afford the best honeymoon in the world… very unfair… lol.

Sadly I watch this show too often 🙂  Surprisingly the person who spent the most money does not win all the time.  I remember on a few occasions the person who spent the least had ended up on top.  My favorite episodes tend to be the ones where the budget is on the low side, seeing how they cut corners and still have amazing weddings are pretty neat.

It frustrates me too.  I always watch it though and it’s not always the most expensive one that wins though.

What bothers me is things like “I’m giving her wedding a 4. I loved the food and the ceremony and had a lot of fun dancing, but I didn’t like when the groom wore a mask during their first dance”.  Really?!  That affected your overall experience by 6 points!

I watch 4 weddings all the time and I find the person who went over the top never usually wins.  Sometimes the one with lowest budget and the simplest wedding wins overall.

I agree about the budget differences. It’s kind of like, how are you supposed to compare these weddings when they are different on such a basic level? I love it when the lower budget weddings win – I root for them! haha.

@kay01: I have seen 1 person give someone’s wedding a 10 – just once!  I can’t remember which episode though.

I watch this show WAY too much for my own good, I even rewatch some episodes.  And I find most often the most expensive budget does NOT win, the other brides seem to genuinely find it over-the-top or they are gunning for her as the front-runner.

I also love seeing all the DIY stuff that the brides do, and to see what doesn’t go over well.

I always root for the low budget ones too because they deserve/need the honeymoon more than someone who can afford to drop 20K plus. I would love to see a spinoff of low-budget weddings where people conquer the limitations of money by putting themselves into the wedding with DIY projects, creativity, etc.

@Stammie16: I watch these avidly too- I adamantly told my parents last night to record it on their DVR since I was coming home late and they were like “Ahhh, what channel is TLC?”

-I would like to watch other wedding shows but I don’t get any other ones 🙁

@danicalifornia: I never understand why the people with really high budgets are competing either… if you can afford a 70k wedding, you can afford a honeymoon!

IMO I think the entire concept of the show is awful.
