- Wedding: December 2010
@dcdt212: Thank you for the offer-I’ll let you know if anything comes of it. There are only a million people with a million ideas-most of the them the same. lol And thank you for being my potential viewer:)
I think you are right, the weddings would have to be staggered in order to be judged. And the three month window (an arbitrary number-maybe it should be two or even one) would be if you were definitely accepted. You just wouldn’t know which day the cameras were going to show up. That way you can give some warning to friends and family but it would still be a surprise.
I would really hope too it wouldn’t result in a lot of backyard weddings. lol You would need to be more creative than that. I mean, if that’s what you had available, then okay. But where else can you go on short notice? Maybe a really cool (but not too creepy) abandoned loft that someone is willing to rent out cheap. What about a train station? Or a nearby park/forest. Can you turn an Elks Lodge into a hip cocktail lounge? Can you serve pizza and make a gourmet presentation out of it? Can you find a bargain wedding cake at a bakery that maybe some other bride ordered and never picked up?
Also, since reading all the replies and feedback, I thought of something else. Some people have commented that it wouldn’t be a special wedding or have any meaning. Not true. I’ve heard people here counsel a bride over and over again, that the only thing that matters is that they’re marrying the man they love. And it’s true. Do you need a large diamond? Do you need a designer dress? Or Jimmy Choo shoes? Or the perfect font for your invitations? No, you need your man and your friends and family.
It would just be really interesting to see what people can pull together under extreme pressure. Most brides are totally stressed out on their wedding day anyway. Why not just get it all over with in a matter of hours? You can sleep when you’re dead, right? lol I agree with you too, 24 hours is probably a better time frame.
Anyway, thank you again for the feedback. Glad to know you would be interested. I would totally do it if I were getting married. The mind is reeling with possiblities. lol
