Can't talk to her, can't kill her. Here comes Bridezilla.

"Bridezilla: a bride who mutates from being a perfectly normal human being to being an obsessive-compulsive control freak when it comes to planning her perfect day.
I missed this show completely since I don't have cable, but I'm glad it's on DVD because it's trashy reality television in its purest form. This show brings stories of Manhattan brides who, according to the narrator, are twice as stressed out and likely to morph into the aforementioned Bridezilla because of the stress of everyday life in New York.
The three featured couples were:
Karen and Emmet: Karen's a PR director for H&M and Emmett is her banker fiance. They've already been together for four years, live together, and have a three-year-old daughter. Still, this doesn't stop Karen from wanting the perfect wedding down to auditioning different hair stylists, struggling to get the cut of her wedding dress perfect and finding a new florist at the last minute. Karen is self-admittedly hard to please and they're my favorite couple by far. Karen's meltdown at her wedding reception is the stuff Bridezillas are made of.
Julia and Alan: Julia is a 43-year-old African-American beauty consultant who has been planning her wedding since her childhood. Having waited so long, it's obvious why she gets teary-eyed and emotional almost every time she even talks about the ceremony. She meets with her wedding consultant two times a week for nine months leading up to her dream ceremony. She's spending her life savings on this ceremony so everything has to be perfect. I don't mention Alan because he's hardly in the show at all except for the actual wedding.
Cynthia and Matt: Cynthia is an actress who is marrying Matt, a stage director. Accordingly, their wedding is filled with drama. Cynthia's stepfather is bankrolling the $100,000 ceremony, so she finds other things to freak out about instead of money. For instance: her therapist who wants to see her more often during this stressful time, her wedding dress which becomes unacceptable at her third fitting, and the hangover she gets from staying out too late the night before her wedding.
Some of the other things to look out for are a thirty thousand dollar engagement ring, a wedding planner who morphs into a Bridezilla, grooms who are completely oblivious and out of the loop, and finally a bride who has had a wedding planner for THREE years. This 2 DVD set includes eight episodes and a recap of the first season as well as DVD extras including a third season preview and a New York bride cake dive.
This show is funny and it would be great to watch while planning a wedding just so you'll know how NOT to treat the people who are helping with your ceremony. Besides just the couples, there are interviews with hair stylists, wedding planners, dress designers, and friends and family. I would definitely recommend it for a low key night in with the girls."

"I brought both the first season and the second second. Despite the production (i.e.: narration, visuals, editing quality) for the second season is better than the first, I liked the first season's contents better as it is about New York beautiful brides. I think if you are a will-be bride or if you are a bridesmaid or a brides' close friend, it is worth watching. It helps you understand what causes brides to become bridezillas and what mistakes to avoid during the wedding planning. You will learn how to give her your support and what not to do to add to her stress. If you are a groom, watching the first season will make you not want to get married. It is a must-watch for wedding planners. This show is not the most exciting show to watch but it is a good documentary of bridezillas. I would recommend it."
I love this show!!

"The show is great. I am preparing for my wedding in August 2007 and the show, I think informed me of how NOT to act. I watched the show to get some ideas and insight of what people actually go through to prepare for a wedding. I found that the show is hilarious to the extent that some brides do go overboard with emotions and preparations for their special day. I recommend this season and the next 2 seasons for all brides to sit back and watch!"
