My Fair Wedding
Celebrity wedding guru David Tutera has taken his expertise in the wedding industry and combined it with reality television heaven. My Fair Wedding features brides-to-be who wish to have Tutera’s guidance and help in planning the perfect wedding. Tutera comes into the wedding planning process with just three weeks until the big day and tells the bride that everything that she’s planned thus far will be scrapped, and he’ll be the one running the show for the next 21 days. Although many brides may be totally appalled at the idea of someone coming in just a few short weeks before the wedding day and changing everything, they’re willing to trust this mastermind with the most important day of their lives.
With just season 5 available on Netflix, you can indulge in 15 straight episodes of My Fair Wedding. You’ll be able to laugh and cry along with all these brides and wonder what your wedding would be like if someone as influential as David Tutera came in and revamped your entire wedding for you.

We’ve all heard the term “bridezilla” before, and this reality TV series showcases the ultimate Bridezillas who are currently planning their dream weddings. Each episode presents stories of two different brides-to-be, from how they met their grooms-to-be to the events leading up to the big day. As the wedding planning process moves along, the bridezillas are shown interacting with members of their families, their grooms, the wedding party and the wedding vendors. Typically, each woman featured on the show is portrayed as an uncontrollable, mean, overly emotional and generally crazy person who is determined to get exactly what she wants for her wedding day.
This is one of those reality TV shows that you can watch during your own wedding planning journey to keep you grounded, as each bridezilla’s experiences will offer some reassurance and comfort as you know that you haven’t quite reached that level yet. Watch two full seasons of Bridezillas on Netflix and feel a sense of encouragement in your own wedding planning.

When you’re getting ready for a day as important and well-documented as your wedding day, it’s natural to feel as though you’d like to tone up and get in better shape for the big day. Bridalplasty takes this notion to a whole new level, with brides competing to win both the wedding of their dreams and the plastic surgery procedure of their dreams. Every week the contestants compete in a challenge, ranging from lie detector tests to wedding dress competitions. The winner of each challenge receives a surgery from their procedure “wish list,” and the winner of the entire series also receives her dream wedding.
The entire concept of this show is strangely enthralling and offensive at the same time. Although it only lasted for one season, you can binge watch all 10 episodes to your heart’s content. We promise we won’t judge you if you do.
