Need Some Bride-spiration? Check Out These Wedding Shows

Brides planning their own wedding often get inspiration from wedding-related shows and movies. You can check out a number of different wedding shows in order to learn some helpful tips, gain some insight into the industry, and even help decide your own theme, dress style, color scheme, and other wedding choices. There are 5 main wedding shows to watch that will inspire your dream day.

{Eds. Note: We think you’re perfect the way you are, and no one should feel the need to lose weight or get any other extreme work done for their wedding day. However, should you choose to do so, please consult your physician and ensure you take a healthy, happy path toward your goal.}

Shedding for the Wedding

Getting into shape before the big day is a goal of many brides. If you want some inspiration, you can watch Shedding for the Wedding. Real-life couples participate on the show, as it is a reality competition. Nine couples compete to win the wedding of their dreams. The couple who loses the least amount of weight each week is eliminated from the show. While the show was previously canceled, you can watch reruns when they air on Directv in PA and pretty much any other state.

My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding

TLC is a popular channel for wedding shows. You can catch up on shows like “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” as long as you have TLC in your DirectTV package. Watching On Demand is a popular option for new episodes. This show features brides within the Gypsy community and details how they are going to include their tradition and culture into their weddings.

Say Yes to the Dress

Also on TLC is the show, “Say Yes to the Dress.” This is an excellent show for any bride trying to find the right wedding dress style for them. Women on the show come to the shop with their mothers, grandmothers, sisters and bridesmaids in tow in order to try on some of their dream dresses. Some they love, and some they hate, but it just takes one they can’t live without for them to say yes to the dress. You can find some inspiration for your own wedding dress by watching the show and possibly even find some bridesmaid dress options as well. The show typically ends with a sneak peak of the bride’s wedding, showing them wearing the final dress they chose. It is so popular that there are also now spin-offs of the show, including a Plus-Size addition, and “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.”

Bridezillas

You can find out what not to do by watching “Bridezillas.” This show features some of the worst brides in history. It is a docu-series that follows women through their wedding planning process. Many will stop at nothing to have their day turn out to be exactly what they want. The show sometimes plays reruns on WE tv, which is available through Direct.

Bridalplasty

The E!Network took a look into brides who wanted to go all out to achieve their dream wedding look. This included them getting plastic surgery in order to reach their goals. You can watch the reality show to see what types of surgeries the brides were wanting most, and which bride won the final prize of earning her dream wedding.

As a bride, you want to do as much research as possible in order to help you decide which things you truly want to include on your special day. You also need to consider which items or traditions are simply not for you. While you can read through magazines or search online, watching these wedding shows on TV where actual couples are featured is a great way to help you better come to some of your own conclusions about your wedding desires.
