I had to stop watching the show because it was driving me crazy the way they score things. Like, “I’m giving her dress a 3 out of 10 because I don’t like mermaid dresses…” The hell does that have to do with how she looked in the dress? Or, “I’m giving the ceremony a 4 out of 10 because I don’t like personalized vows” The grading just always seems so messed up.
I have long believed that the grading should be done by “professionals” in the wedding industry, not catty brides. Also, there always seems to be a distaste for anything “offbeat”, which always rubs me the wrong way.

love the show but i have to point out that my venue was in the show and the girl won. YAY I totally saw why she won when I did my first tour there. i agree though it’s totally unfair. One of the most funniest ones that i saw was a girl had this nice gorgeous ball roll. Then they walk in with pizza boxes and generic soda. The bride had an amazing time and for her it was the best night ever but i personally wouldn’t do that and expect to when. In the end it’s all about having a great time though not about how perfect or not perfect the venue or food was. Unless it was actually that disastrous that it can kill a brides mood.

- Wedding: September 2016 - Martin\'s Valley Mansion
This show is definitely one of my guilty pleasures! I think it’s stupid when the guest brides give low scores because they don’t think the bride followed her theme. For example, “X was supposed to have a beach themed wedding, but these centerpieces aren’t very beachy.” Who cares?! If the wedding was nice and you had a good time, who cares about a beach theme? I know they’re probably prompted by the producers to say stuff like that, but come on now.
Also, I don’t understand how some of these brides spend $50,000-$100,00+ for a wedding, but still compete to win a free honeymoon that’s not even guaranteed. They could cut a couple things from the wedding and go on their own honeymoon. I guess everyone has their own set of priorities, though, so I shouldn’t judge them too much lol.

I also think that if they are going to have themed weddings they should be grouped together too. i saw one that had a circus theme and the rest were just normal and they all thought hers was stupid. doesnt seem fair. cant compare a themed wedding to a traditional one.

My favorite thing is when a guest bride will say something like, “It was the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen! I loved the venue, the food was amazing! And I had sooooo much fun! But it was windy so I’m going to rate her wedding a 5.”

Personally I like the ones where they have to rate the weddings 3,2,1 in different catergories. I think it’s the American version?
Whereas the Canadian ones give 1-10 in their catergories. Maybe they’ve changed it, I haven’t seen it in a long while.
There was one wedding (the last one) where a bride took ideas from the other three weddings and mashed it up into hers… Brides completely destroyed her in the points section… And didn’t mince words.

The show is totally addictive. I LOVE Bridezillas in the worst way though. It’s like a little taste of home, haha

That part of the show makes me laugh! One bride will say I hate over the type bling weddings and the next bride will say I’m having an over the top blinged out affair. lol.

Sooo true. I binge watched it a bit this weekend and heard three times if I didn’t hear it once, “Too extravagant for my taste.” So what you’re saying is you’d rather have McDonald’s than filet? I call bs. That’s just bald-faced jealousy, right there.

they have to script it that way. They have to like pour through hundreds of applications looking for the one bride that loves live bands and the one girl who HATES live bands haha.

LOL thank you! I don’t want to threadjack but I have made some jalapeño cupcakes and they were pretty fabulous! I did a smoked chocolate cupcake with jalapeño ganache icing.
