What makes for a fantastic, highly watchable wedding TV show? Drama, of course! While most brides experience jitters that might make them a bit more emotional than usual, shows like WE tv's 'Bridezillas' highlight what happens when those jitters morph into total and complete irrationality. Other shows, like 'Four Weddings,' follow several brides as they attend each others weddings and wedding receptions, judging which ones are the best. It's definitely a competition with a lot on the line, as the winner
gets a huge honeymoon as a prize.
Figuring out how to throw a dream wedding can be a serious challenge, and that's the idea behind 'My Fair Wedding
,' a reality show that features wedding planner David Tutera helping women make their wedding dreams come true, by figuring out some great ideas just weeks before the ceremony. And many, many of the best wedding shows on TV feature engaged women trying to select the best, most beautiful wedding dress ever (including the aforementioned 'Say Yes to the Dress' and the TLC show 'I Found the Gown').
