Wedding shows are all the rage. Weddings are so popular that they have taken to invading our favorite networks and become part of our daily diet of TV. Those who have an upcoming wedding, are going to a wedding, had a wedding or just simply are an enthusiast of weddings, you are not alone. As you may already know, we here at Simply Bridal are addicted. And there is no shortage of wedding shows on TV, from the fairytale endings, million dollar extravaganzas, bridezillas, frazzled grooms and the mother - in- law from you know where, and even plastic surgery competition. Wedding shows run the gamut of sub genres and can rack up hours spent in front of the TV; laughing, crying, laughing and then crying along with your favorite or love to hate brides. You don't have to be a bride or a groom to appreciate these guilty pleasures.
In no particular order, here are some of our favorite shows.
TLC's A Wedding Story: This is one of the oldest reality wedding shows out there. It follows two individuals while they plan their upcoming nuptials. It shows people from all walks of life, religions, and countries. It focuses more on the wedding planning then anything else. This show should come with warning beforehand that it will induce some serious water works.
Another TLC favorite is Say Yes to the Dress. This show chronicles brides - to - be in the hot pursuit of the perfect wedding dress. Kleinfeld Bridal Salon in New York City ( a top shop that boasts top designers dresses) serves as the backdrop for this show that gives us an intimate look at all the tears shed of joy, sadness and relief when the perfect dress has finally be found.
One of the most infamous bridal shows out there is WE's Bridezillas. The inability to turn away from this train wreck is hard. When the brides are not insulting their bridesmaids or family members or barking orders at her finance or wedding planner, she is ripping her veil in half or making people cry.
The WE network really knows how to entertain their bridal obsessed viewers. Platinum Weddings puts weddings on the spotlight in colossal proportions. No budget is too big for the horse drawn carriage entrances, jewelled flowers, designer dog wear ( who will be walking down the isle, of course), or elaborate fireworks to entertain their guests. Brides purr and coo and their fathers or fiances sign the checks and try not to cry.
So, what are your favorite?
