MFT Day 12: TLC's Four Weddings

This is definitely a guilty Friday night pleasure for me and Ricky.  It's this show we stumbled upon on Friday nights on TLC.  Four girls who are having weddings compete against each other to see who can throw the best wedding (based on reviews by their peers) and the winner gets a free honeymoon.

This description doesn't do this show justice, though.

What makes it great is seeing not only how the weddings look, but also just how catty some of these girls can be.  And judgmental.  Also seeing either how amazingly nice or slightly low rent the weddings are.  We also end up rooting for the sadder sacks or the sweeter girls, and then hoping against hope that the preachy girls who don't serve alcohol or food at their wedding and bitch about all the other weddings lose.  (this last statement is based on the worst wedding we've seen to date.  Fortunately, the girl lost)

Without a doubt, the Florida weddings are usually done on the cheap or involve weird things like a party boat, the New York weddings are a mixed bag but usually quite intense, and the Chicago weddings are generally nice.  But there are some universal rules and trends from episode to episode.

--No one cares what you wear to your wedding unless you change dresses for the reception to something slutty.  Then they super care.
--The #1 thing that can ruin your wedding is bad food.  The #2 is lack of dancing.
--Releasing butterflies after your ceremony is always a bad idea. 
--Cute children saves anything.
--Be true to yourself.
--Good drinks helps. 

If we don't have anything to do on a Friday night, Ricky and I will order in and drink quite a bit of wine while watching the girls duke it out.  It's so great.
