    @In the media:  I’ve never gotten that impression when I’ve watched him. It almost sounds like you’re watching a completely different show than I’ve been watching.

    I don’t know if he is someone who I would be friends with in real life, but I would hire him a my wedding planner. My wedding is inspired by some of his designs.

    By The Way: I don’t see any previews for the new season on that link. I only see the old ones.

    @Loribeth: I love what he does in the end though, so I can mute him when I think heis being mean and then we can enjoy the end together! 😀

    I love him and have gotten many ideas from him, with that said he is planning weddings with no budget in mind!

    He can be too much sometimes, but i still love watching the show. He’s really talented.

    Just want to point out that if I was a gay man I’d be all over David Tutera……

    Amen to that! I’ve meet him twice and I simply adore him. Yes he’s part of the WIC but you bet your ass if I could afford him, I WOULD get him in heartbeat. And clearly if you HIRE him he’s not in a postion to dedicate to you as much as he can on this show.

    Now do I agree with EVERY single of his ideas, of course not, but if your bride looking to get a $100k+ wedding for free, suck it up. So what if one your ideas gets thrown out. I don’t feel any empathy of these brides cause they know exactly what they are signing up for. If you were truly a budget diva bride that was comfortable with the supermarket cake, why the hell are you signing up for wedding makeover show?? Clearly you not okay with it. Lets be real here.

    And from what I’ve seen he rarely completely dismisses something. he tries to incoroprate their ideas by classing it up. Sorry some of these ideas are ghastly IMO and need to be rehashed if not thrown out.

    I really enjoy the things he pulls off – a lot of them were things I’ve dreamt of doing, had I the money. I do not enjoy that he a) covers up bride’s tattoos and b) Makes a selection of only three items, asks people which they would prefer, and then STILL gets the final decision.

    @noodlesploosh:  Nine times out of ten, I’ve seen him select the bride’s choice when he’s asked her which item she prefers. I can only think of once where he hasn’t–I’m sure there were more, but I can only think of a time when he selected a different cake than the bride chose.

    This is a cable show, not a network show.  There is no way they have the budget to “gift” a wedding to these misguided brides.  Rather, vendors are donating their time, talent, and product in exchange for free syndicated adveyrtising.  So, in a way, this is one big advertisement and promotional show for various “wedding machine” vendors. 

    I have to admit though, I’m a fan!  My wedding would never resemble a Tutera wedding, but I do find the show very enjoyable and fun!   The “Christmas Machine” has hypnotized me as well.  What can I say?!

    I feel like a lot of his designs end up looking the same with neon uplights everywhere (ala Miami beach). He makes a lot of brides really happy, but he just wasn’t my style of designer.

    Oh Grape, you might hate me for this, but in the few times I’ve seen the show, I think that he (or the show) have given me to be a total snarky b!tch. And in those few times I’d seen the show, I had the same objections that he does (sort of similar as watching “What Not to Wear.”)

    In general, I’m totally over the wedding industry and it’s “must haves” and I hate how it tends ot make brides insecure. And IRL, I’m pretty much “to each her own.”

    BUT

    I’m pretty secure in my taste and taste level. So I would never hire a wedding designer because I’m quite happy not having one–non-supermarket cakes be damned! So it amuses me in a completely self-serving way to watch brides who kind of “don’t get it,” (there’s a clip right now on the site of a couple who scanned a photo of the groom in Greek-god garb and wants to imprint that on the foil that goes around the chocolate coins that will be given to the guests as favors…David pretty much said it: “Seriously??…No.”) as much as it amuses me to watch a snobby gay designer have to deal with planning a wedding with say, a D&D theme. Sorry–can’t help it! 🙂

    @fleetstreetpress:  You’ll find this is true of any designer, photographer, artist, etc. They have their own style and a lot of the things they do look alike.  But if you don’t like one desiger’s, photographer’s or artist’s style, you can always find another who has a different style that does appeal to you.

    @BostonBaby: Pretty much every single thing you said!

    I mean, if you want a wedding like that, then sure, go on his show. But the fact that people do it certainly doesn’t invalidate all criticism of him or the show.  I do loathe the look of his weddings, but it’s the “my brides” comments and the groom-as-accessory attitude that make me want to smack him with a centerpiece dripping with crystals and 820,000 Ecuadorian red roses.
