What better way to waste a Sunday morning than by watching reruns of “Four Weddings”?! I kid…a little….FH and I getting to wedding stuff soon.
I know it’s totally high-school-Mean Girl-ish of me, but I am pleased when the mean, snotty, judgemental brides lose on “Four Weddings”. Now, I know it’s a contest/competition, so yes, there is an element of judging, but you know the brides who are just major brats. Like “I didn’t like Suzy-Q’s wedding because the napkin rings were lame.” or “I didn’t like Mary’s wedding because it was weird they served carrot cake.”
Cracks me up every time!

I always LOL when the brides are shown clearly having an AWESOME time at a wedding and then in the interview they’re like, “I give this wedding a five.” Bitch please, you were up on that dance floor and swooning over your steak and gobbling up treats at the dessert bar and we all saw it! The girls were much more generous in the first few episodes; they’d hand out 9’s with no problems. Then they strategized I guess, and realized it helped their chances to lowball. LOL.

@ohheavenlyday: So true!!!! I give this wedding a four, I mean I know I took 57lbs of candy from their candy buffet, but they didn’t have Sweet Tarts.

@ohheavenlyday: I so hate that to LOL. I mean really how do you give someones wedding a less than 5?? to me thats just rude… when you consider 5 average. I haven’t seen anything on there that warrents a low ball score of 3 or 4 like i’ve seen some of these chicks give.
And I love it when the one who spent the most is convinced shes gonna win and then loses. Umm sorry having 20,000 stations or 50 hor’ds passed around too me doesn’t make a wedding. Especially when there is no warmth or emotion.

I actually think this show is so sad! I hate watching them judge other weddings. I feel like the people getting married are just so happy and having such a good time, I think it detracts from that to be judged! Like this one episode I watched of two 18 year olds getting married? They judged the bride for wearing converse, when if that’s her thing I think it’s cool. And they laughed because they had a milk and cookie bar, and instead of a champagne toast they had milk. I thought it was cute and, I mean, otherwise they would have sparkling cider, right? And of course it’s low budget, jeez!
I don’t know. I’ve found that I just overall dislike wedding shows. Nothing against people who like them, I just don’t!
@Birdie Love: This made me laugh so hard though. The ones I’ve watched, this is sooo truee.

I hate that show, although I watch it all the time. I just feel really upset watching these women spend thousands and thousands of dollars on their wedding, only to “Not have money for a honeymoon, feel bad for me”

I only wish that they balanced the weddings more. It’s not fair to compare an $80,000 wedding to a $10,000 wedding. Still, once in a while the cheapest wedding will win and it’s sort of a moment of victory for all of us super budget brides. My Fiance always watches it from the mans point of view, and one time, when one of the brides was being particularly catty he said “I am so glad you are not like that! If they win, I think her husband should cash in the vacation and pay for a divorce attorney instead.”

I hate how sucked in I get with that show. What drives me crazy is when they say something along the lines of, “I gave her a 5 because her (insert wedding-related item) wasn’t MY taste.” Oh? I was pretty sure that wasn’t YOUR wedding. The point is – did it work for that person based on who they are and did it work for the ceremony and was everyone happy? Especially when they say something along the lines of, “The dress wasn’t my taste.” Ok. Well, you aren’t wearing it. Does it work for the bride who IS wearing it? I get that it’s a competition, but it’s also a happy occassion. Stop being so bratty.
Blah! It’s so addicting. 🙂

@Mrs. Puffin: I remember that episode. It was horrible. She’s 18, she’s not going to have liquor. And seriously, who doesn’t love cookies and milk?! If I remember right her church helped her pay for some things? But the other brides complained about everything, even the color of cake!
I havent’ seen ‘Four Weddings’ in a while. I always seem to miss it. But I too always give a little cheer when the snotty girls lose.

I just wish there were categories. Like brides that spend between 10,000-20,000 and then 20,000-30,000, 30,000-40,000 ect ect ect. That way good food and sweet DIY details would go further. It’s just like, well… duh, her $170,000 wedding was amazing. Better than the two 20,000 and the 40,000… And she gets a free honeymoon? I don’t know. But, heh, I do like the show.
