- Wedding: June 2010 - The Narragansett Towers
Has anyone seen this show? I just stumbled across it and am a little flabbergasted.
Four brides have agreed to attend – and score – each other’s weddings. They’ll be judging the food, dresses, venues and their overall experiences. The bride whose wedding rates the best wins a fabulous, a five-star honeymoon.
When did weddings become a competition to be judged? Ridic!

Agreed P Chips! I LOVE seeing 4 different weddings in 1 hour. But I hate how judgey they get! Sure sometimes I’ll be like “eh, I don’t like the color of those floewrs” or something at a wedding… but it’s what THEY want. They picked THEIR groom, I picked mine. Not everyone likes the same stuff! I feel bad for the girls when they watch this!

I’m watching that right now…..it’s an interesting idea to say the least! Three people who don’t know you judging your wedding? Especially when everyone has a different idea of what makes a wedding “perfect.”
The moment that shocked me the most was after the traditional Indian ceremony, which was very lengthy, one of the other brides gave that bride a lower score because the “ceremony was too long.” Uhm…hello? Just cause you might like a quick ceremony doesn’t make a long one any less amazing. And it was an important part of the bride and groom’s culture!
I just don’t really get it.

I did see that show and I thought it was pretty good. They were competing for an all expenses paid honeymoon. I thought it was a great way to get a free honeymoon.

I hate that these women are competing to win a prize based on whose wedding is the best. In the one episode I saw it was obvious that the winner boiled down to the girl that had the most money to spend.

I’ve watched the show a couple of time. One thing that really bothers me is all the talking they do throughout the ceremony. I would be a litlte ticked if I not only heard non-stop chatter but that it was someone who was picking out every little thing they didn’t like about my wedding. I just thought it was rude. They could’ve waited until after. I think they made some valid points at times but I thought they could’ve waited until a more appropriate time. Oh and the lady that won last night was going on about how she needed a vacation/honeymoon but she was the one that had the quickie wedding so she could make the ship FOR HER HONEYMOON!!!

i personally love watching the show, but you’re right – everyone has different traditions, cultures, and interests. just because my wedding is different doesn’t mean you have to like it. if everything was the way you wanted it to be, it would be your wedding.

I’ve seen the show twice, the first time I didn’t pay much attention to it, but I watched it again last night, and I thought the girls were all very nice in their judgements, saying hwo beautiful most things were about the other girls’ weddings.
There was one couple who married in late morning, and the recption was for 2 hours (with a huge buffet) and then right as “the party started”, the reception had to end b/c the couple needed to get on a cruise ship. They were upset that they didn’t have time to taste everything and as soon as people were ready to dance they had to go home. They were hard on her for that, but 2 hour reception with dj and tons of food? Thats just not enough time!

Never heard of it, but it sounds ridiculous! Brides already feel enough of a sense of competition about their weddings–really we don’t need to take it to this extreme!

I watched that for the first time last night and was quite put off. While, it was nice to see the four different weddings and how different and beautiful they each were. Yes there were elements that weren’t MY taste but it’s not my wedding and I don’t think that means that somehow one wedding is better than the other. I didn’t like how the one girl shaved points off for the Indian ceremony being too long and the one girl didn’t like that there were crystals dangling from the cake. I think that some people have different priorities for their weddings, we see it here on the ‘bee everyday. A great example of this was the couple who had a 3 hour shindig, they they offered a lot of food choices during the reception and obvioulsy wanted to have a little get away after the wedding. I’m a sucker for wedding shows tho so if it’s ever on again when I’m bored I’ll probably watch it.

We watched it last night with the volume down while hanging out with some friends. It was good without having to hear all of the catty comments. Mostly we just glanced up here and there to see all these pretty weddings. 🙂

Ew. That show sounds incredibly unappealing to me.

I saw it once and its true that they were all very nice in most of the things they said. Its also true that the person who spends the most ends up having the “best” wedding. I know I wouldnt win!!

I’ll just pay for my own honeymoon and skip the nationally televised judgements about my wedding, thank you very much.
For others that might be just what they want.

i couldn’t imagine wanting to be on the show. weddings are stressful enough, but having to be judged by 3 girls and everyone else watching the show…. not ok.
