    I’m figuring you probably applied to be on the show if they’re calling you, right?  Or did they somehow get your info from someone else?  Because if you applied, then I’d say you’re probably wanting to do it (maybe at least for the right price)…so go for it!  The only thing I would be leary of is how they are going to portray you – it seems like even if you’re not like the girls on the show, they’re going to find a way to edit you to look that way.  Otherwise, there’s no bridezilla to showcase.

    I must confess I am emotionally responding to this…I am not over budget but my savings is going bye bye. So I’d jump at the chance right now for a lil $ for the wedding. If i were in my right mind I would say, do you have a price tag for having people think you are a certain “way”, If it trully will not bother you then sure! have fun with it! There is a certain sense of excitement there right? there would be for me at least…just so long as you KNOW you wont regret the whole paparazzi thing lol!

    I personally wouldn’t go on Bridezillas, because I wouldn’t want the most special day in my life to become a reality tv spectacle. And considering the name of the show, 99% of the content that features you is going to be negative or have a mocking tone.

    Hahaha that’s actually pretty funny that that’s what you wrote in the “application,” and apparently, that’s right up their alley.  

    It’s a tough call.  If you do the show, you’re going to be portrayed in a bad light – there are really no ifs, ands or buts about it.  But you’ll get paid, which helps the budget.  You have to decide if you’re okay being portrayed publicly in that way, which is really going to be a personal call.  I don’t think that I could do it, but that doesn’t mean that’s the right answer for you.

    I always figured the people on those shows are acting or greatly exaggerating things…   🙂  Do whatever you prefer!  I wouldn’t because my family is rather shy and not TV reality show material… but if your family is okay with it, give it a shot!

    @jules0580: Haha so true….keep us posted!  I’m definitely curious how the compensation works – I feel like it’s gotta be decent for people to agree to do the show.

    Ugh, I wouldn’t. Plus don’t go on tv if there are any skeletons in your closet!

    I said for the right price.  And honestly, for me to consider that, it would have to be at least 20k.

    @Qitty: I think they get something like $4,000

    I don’t know; I think it could be fun but you could also get hurt by how they portray you.

    Also wanna say that a side ponytail done right can be pretty! That’s what my MOHs did and recently on My Fair Wedding they did it too.
