I usually watch â€œwhose weddingâ€ but the last two seasons were terrible and full of concept shows like contests and double weddings and such that I just didnâ€™t like at all.
I was also a big fan of â€œplatinum weddingsâ€ for how absurd it is. It was over the top pretentious, self absorbed, and shallow people who loved to say â€œblingâ€ and â€œwow factorâ€ a lot. I love how they think everything they do is so original when every episode shows people doing the same thing, lol. I really enjoyed making fun of them with my FI. However they changed the formula for the show this season and its damn near unwatchable. I canâ€™t stand the new narrator (sheâ€™s so monotone) and I HATE the checklist of how much everything costs. They managed to make the people appear more shallow if thatâ€™s even possible. I have three episodes on my DVR but I canâ€™t even bring myself to watching them anymore.
I also used to like â€œrich bride, poor brideâ€ but they took the charm of it somehow and now the â€œdramaâ€ is very much put on and over the top.
â€œmy fair weddingâ€ I liked at first but then it got sorta old. I didnâ€™t always like how his new designs were mostly the same for each reworked wedding he did.
â€œsay yes to the dressâ€ is terrible. I am not ashamed to say I nearly hate the show. There is only one other bridal show I dislike more than this one. I hate the sales people on the show. They try to come off as caring when all they are trying to do is make the sale. If they simply said â€œIâ€™m just trying to make the saleâ€ I would respect it a little more. they even say on the show how everyone should come and try dresses on at kleinfield for the experience but when they have girls who do, they bitch and moan about it and how these women are wasting their time because they arenâ€™t going to buy anything.
â€œbridezillaâ€ is THE worst bridal show EVERZ. I like cheesy, guilty pleasure shows (ghost whisperer is mine and I only recently admitted it to myself that I like the show, lol) but when I watch this show I feel like it is insulting my intelligence. The drama is so fake and put on it isnâ€™t even watchable.
I guess Iâ€™m done with my wedding show rant that came out of no where, lol!

i watched an older episode last night, the bride was more mature but had always dreamed of a ball gown style, but was on a $2k budget. her mom wanted her in a slimmer style, so instead of showing the bride the dresses she wanted (which cost more) they kept putting her in slimmer gowns that cost less. if they really didnt have a single ball gown in her price, they should have told her so she didnt waste her time! it was so rude of them. i kept yelling at the tv saying "go to davids bridal where you can have a ball gown for way less than $2k!!!"
anyways, erin just clued me in to 4 weddings this past week but i havent caught one yet. i need to remember to search it so i can dvr it!! it sounds really fun

this show is really a lot more charming and real than any other bridal show. i find myself really liking most of the brides and cheer for at least 3 out of the 4 to win!! most of the brides really have nice sweet things to say about the other bride's choices which is endearing. of course there may be that one meanish britch who has nothing but negative things to say about anything and anyone.
all in all i really like this bridal show better than any other.
i forgot to mention "masters of reception" in my other bridal show rant. this show is really interesting as it shows a different side to weddings, the caterer side. of course like most other shows, the throw in some unnecessary drama that really almost has nothing to do with anything that is going on. despite that the show is really interesting to watch. i'm not sure if the show will be back for a second season which to me is a sad loss.

The weddings at least need to be in the same budget ballpark. Anything more than $5,000 difference is obviously giving an advantage - especially for things like venue and food. It would be so much more interesting to see what four different brides could do with the same budget.
