Saw a couple of reruns over the weekend. The hour-long format is so much better than the new version.
The Boston episode had two brides with lovely weddings but less-lovely attitudes.
Fairytale Princess wedding: It rubbed me the wrong way from the get-go how Anjulie bragged that her fiance was doing all the work. She came off so entitled and spoiled. Also, she was pretty critical of the others' weddings, and kept comparing them unfavorably to her own. Her wedding was actually quite nice, with a gorgeous venue, and her princessy dress looked beautiful on her. I was a little surprised by the husband's state trooper uniform, but maybe that's the norm for members of law enforcement? I've only ever seen military uniforms worn. Too bad about the lack of AC in the castle; they should have thought that through, but my sense is that Princess would have wanted the place anyway. Their wish lanterns were awesome floating over the water.
Harvard Cammi also had a very nice wedding. I liked everything about it except the personal photos at the reception (who puts a photo of themselves as a cheerleader at their wedding? Get over it!) The chapel was beautiful; the string quartet was awesome; her Dad walking her down the aisle was moving; her reception venue was lovely. I thought she looked beautiful in that dress, and especially liked the ruched bodice. Then she turned around and was so fussy at all the other weddings. You don't like the outdoors? You don't like TREES? What kind of inane comment is that?
The other weddings were also nice. I liked the backyard wedding. I thought the food looked great, even though Anjulie said it wasn't enough for a wedding. That wedding also featured wish lanterns - wonder whose wedding came first? These didn't come off as spectacularly, not having wide open spaces for flight. The whaling museum wedding was fine, but nothing special. I was surprised it tied for first. I suspect some highly strategic placements by the contestants to help themselves or hurt someone else. That was my favorite dress, and the bride (Jenna?) seemed to have a great time. But the whole thing was pretty typical wedding except for the reception venue, which seemed ill-suited.
This show is such a guilty pleasure. Sorry to hear it may not be coming back.
