    I've always been amazed at how *some* think it's a better idea to blow what amounts to more than a substantial downpayment on a house on a one day event that really doesn't need to be the circus it always turns out to be. How does anyone justify a $100,000 wedding?

    Especially considering that most will be divorcing in the not so distant future. Weddings are a waste. There are many other, more meaningful ways to celebrate love than dropping tens of thousands of dollars on a lot of pomp and circumstance.

    No kidding. I was absolutely FLOORED at the amount of money they were spending for these weddings.

    Good God, our entire wedding cost less than some of these girls' dresses... and we (and our guests) had a great time. [​IMG]

    Well, the women's magazines are selling this dream to their readers, it's like "if you don't have at least a $20K+ wedding you're a loser". Of course it's gonna affect them.

    Then again, there are people in this forum who are no strangers to spending money on things that are terrible investments.

    I guess as long as you feel it's worth it, go ahead.

    And these ladies weren't even very serious Bridezillas. Very tame in comparison with what I've read and experienced in real life. The only examples in the show I saw of flirting with big time Bridezilla status was when Julia (Obsessive Bride #1) wanted to make sure her guest was wearing the champagne-colored dress and when the New York Neurotic (Name escapes me, but had 6 dress fittings) starts freaking out at the W hotel over her 20 minute 'cocktail hour.'

    I think out of all the brides featured, Miho takes the honor of creepiest Bridezilla.

    Funny, I know one of the "bridezillas," Cynthia, the actress, neurotic #2, and thought she held up rather well with the stress of planning a wedding and having a TV crew follow her around. Apparently, the show was originally supposed to be called "Manhattan Brides," but they determined in the editing room that these people were crazy and renamed the show Bridezillas.
