I was asked to interview for the show. My wedding is June 9th. I don’t know if I can handle the added stress this late in the game. I’m also worried about the other girls completely tearing apart my wedding and then it ruining the memories for me. What would you do? Would your guests be ok with the camera crews being everywhere or do you think they would think you turned your wedding into a circus…

I LOVE that show but I don’t know how the brides do it and remain calm. A lot of the ripping is for TV…notice a trend 😉 All of them do it, and I know if I went on the show I would not want to look like a jerk, but I am sure they tell me to be a little bit of one 🙂
You have a 1 in 4 chance of winning a honeymoon…if you really need it, go for it, it sounds like you are not feeling it, so don’t do it if you dont! 🙂

I think it depends on the honeymoon. I don’t think you will hear the girls rip on the wedding that day, and I honestly bet the complaining is done after the fact with the producers coaching them and telling them what to say. I personally think it is worth the honeymoon because they seem to send people to fantastic places!

I love watching that show but I would NOT be cool with those women tearing apart my hard work. When they attend your wedding, they’re looking at it from the lense of a planner, scrutinizing every detail. Your guests are most likely not analyzing every little thing and are there for their personal connection to you. Like half the things that they pick apart are thing the other guests probably aren’t even thinking about. I just saw an episode where this bride had a Wizard of Oz theme and it was SICK! It was literally incredible, and the women found things to pick apart with it. I wouldn’t want someone doing that to my special day, and all the feedback I want to hear is from my guests who had a great time.

Hmmm…that’s tough. I think it depends on your personality. For example, do you have really thick skin? Or is someone commenting on a personal detail that meant a lot to you or that you worked really hard on going to upset you? It would be terrible if the show ruined certain memories of your wedding for you. For me, I watch that show but have thoughts, such as “I would never want to spend valuable time at my wedding talking to 3 people that I didn’t know just for tv”…and I wonder how much time you spend with producers trying to get certain shots.

Don’t do it. The honeymoon isn’t worth this added stress on yoruself, your groom, your family.

If you’re worried about the other girls tearing apart your wedding and memories being ruined then I would say probably don’t do it. I love watching that show, but man, some of those girls are mean. Personally, I don’t think I could handle people scrutinizing every aspect of something that I worked so hard to put together.

I would have cancelled too – I like watching it to see other’s weddings, but it makes me so sad to see these women – new brides themsleves! – tear apart each other’s weddings. It’s just bride on bride violence, and I will not stand for it!
