    @Statutory Grape: I love him and think his ideas are usually great! like you said the bride signed up to be on the show , I think those ideas should have been done away with as well…

    @Statutory Grape: lol for birthday cake I love supermarket cakes, but for a wedding I think it should be something a little more special, even if you cant afford a huge cake I would still have a wedding cake baker bake it for me just so you can splurge a little on yourself for one day.

    He’s all about making it the perfect day for the bride and groom.  Never wants them to have a care in the world.  He may not be that against “supermarket cakes” but its a TV show and they need to create drama in order to get good ratings.  And like FutureMrsChaney said, it’s your wedding day, it should be special!

    Usually I don’t agree with his opinions. I feel like he’s gotten a little more untraditional through the years, which makes me happy. Not much, but a little.

    @Statutory Grape: He’s a celebrity planner. Of course he’s going to be a snob. He’s planned million dollar weddings. Plus, he’s part of the wedding machine so he’s secretly sending messages to us all that we NEED all of these things to make a wedding day wonderful.
    He makes it known he hates hates hates fake flowers. He looks like he will vomit at the sight of fake flowers. That’s just his thing.
    I have a snob attitude about some things at a wedding (red plastic cups) but that’s just me.

    These brides sign up knowing full well he’s going to come in and tear everything a part and rebuild.

    Sometimes his judgements on the bride’s choice of vendor due to their budget can bug me. There are certain choices that the bride had to make because that’s what she could afford! He sometimes can put a tacky spin on some of these situations. So yea I get slightly agitated about that aspect, but I am still a fan of the show 😀

    I think that David has a specific definition for what he considers classy. These women have signed up for this show because they knew their wedding was a mess and that they wanted him to help. And also – this show is for entertainment so his comments are suppose to be funny/crude etc. 

    It’s also kind of like the brides who are on Bridezillas – they know what show they are signing up for, so if they look ridiculous, that it their own fault.

    Two words: It’s television

    Just like any other show you see on TV, you take it with a grain of salt because it is manufactured and scripted (yes, even reality shows). If he annoys you, then don’t watch him. Eventually his ratings will dip and he will lose his show. The more you talk about him, the more publicity you generate, the more people tune into his show. It’s how Hollywood works. Money mouth

    Not gonna lie, he bothers me. I feel like he promotes every wedding industry stereotype, and stifles any originality or creativity. Yes, some of these ideas aren’t the best, but the blanket statements he makes smack me as just plain rude. A lot of supermarkets have great cakes, and sometimes you hire a baker and they end up giving you something atrocious on your big day! I think he would have ripped my cheap-o wedding apart, and look how cute that turned out?

    @Statutory Grape: But you would never sign up to be on his show.  People who sign up for the show are well aware of his perspective.
