Say Yes to the Dress
I remember back in college when I watched this but I never got hung up on it because honestly I just could not relate with the emotions that were splattered all over my TV. For the most part, just like every other TV show, of course I know it is all acting but when you have been there and like me, passed there you seem to be able to relate a little bit better. The tears, the fights, the outbursts of anger all because a girl is trying to pick a dress? Oh and Lori and Monte absolutely add to it -my love for that show. You know something is wrong when a girl begins to feel like she knows the people on TV on a personal level. #guilty #MyStory
Why I rank this as number 2, I am not entirely sure but one thing I know is that the idea behind this show just makes my skin crawl underneath! First of all, there is no way I can watch this show without seeing the end game being a “competition.” Now a competition may not always be bad but to me, things like weddings should be left out of it. By the time one brings the “competition” mindset into a wedding, I feel the true meaning is all lost. Weddings are supposed to be one of the happy moments we all should have (if all goes well, only once) so I find it kind of hard if one spends their whole time trying to make theirs better instead of truly enjoying the moments of it all. Secondly, I dare to ask: In whose mindset does it seem okay to let brides with 2 different budgets compete? Talk about injustice! Lol. Not to say that it is impossible for a 15k budget bride to throw a better wedding than a 50k budget bride, but I just think the chances are too slim for TV.
Enough of me bashing this show, I should confess if it is not already obvious -I can spend a whole day watching this show. And I guess at the end of the day, the point is to get an audience whether or not we think the rules are fair. So kudos to the producer’s, I think we can agree that their goals are being met.
Keasha’s Perfect Dress
I still don’t have enough to say about this show since I just started watching it but in a nutshell it is pretty much a Canadian version of “say yes to the dress”- yes, I do have a Canadian side to me which you would soon figure out in my other bants. I should add this though, I think she (Keasha) is really pretty, if that counts for anything.
My Fair Wedding
Yeah, is this still on TV? The one where David Tutera plays the wedding fairy Godfather? I haven’t seen or heard about this show in a while but from the few ones I might have seen back then, I always wondered what it would be like for a complete stranger to walk into my house and totally change my dream wedding from what I want to what he wants. Err…Haven’t quite figured that out yet.
What are the Wedding TV shows you spy?
