Who are the Brides?: 

TLC's "Four Weddings", bride Emily

TLC’s “Four Weddings”, bride Emily

  • Kara, a bride who wants class and sophistication at her wedding who starts the day with a Catholic ceremony.  Pops of purple color down the aisle, and sharing their vows facing their guests, the ceremony was lovely and sweet. A beautiful venue sets the scene for Kara’s reception. First, guests join cocktail hour with a variety of food stations. Inside the reception, featured  purple up-lighting, stunning chandeliers, windows, and tall flower centerpieces. Glow sticks handed out, and the night of dancing filled the dance floor.
  • Kristin is a bride who had her mother plan all the details of her wedding. She shows up the day of and is ready to be married. The ceremony is a traditional Catholic ceremony set in a beautiful church. With a late kiss, the couple walks out to bubbles and cheers. The yacht club was where the cocktail and reception took place. Cocktail hour featured an array of food including a hot pretzel and hot dog station.  Guests walk into a elegant ballroom which was beautifully decorated. The table centerpieces were tall trees with hanging candles and red flowers. Like the bride and groom, their guests like to dance and have a good time.
  • Chrissy a bride who is simple, yet loves graphic designs. Her ceremony is not in a church like the first two brides. Instead, the ceremony is set outside on the green lawn with the mountains and trees as the backdrop. The aisle had hanging blue vases with yellow flowers.Personal vows were shared and the couple was married. The chevron design was evident throughout Chrissy’s wedding decor. What the cocktail hour did not have was shots. No shots were to be served that evening. One of the guest brides were not so happy about that.  The reception set inside a white tent, had guest tables which featured the chevron style table runners, blue vases with unique yellow flowers, and candles. After dancing the night away, all the guests including the bride and groom  hold onto sparklers to end the day.
  • Emily a bride who loves the Christmas holiday, and has a winter wonderland wedding. Set in a church, the wedding day begins with a ceremony decorated with lighted Christmas trees,green garlands hanging above, and red poinsettias. The ceremony began with Emily’s dog as the ring bearer, walking down the aisle.  Following Emily and her groom in their old classic taxi cab, guests arrive at the rooftop of a nearby hotel for cocktail and reception. The reception space had booths and round tables for guests, with tall flower centerpieces with gold and silver colors, gold candles, all with New York City skyline as the backdrop.

Cool factor:  There was one detail from each wedding that stood out for me. What I loved at Kara’s reception was the huge array of desserts. Desserts consisted of a fondue station, cakes, chocolate covered strawberries, and a sundae bar. Even though I could not taste the desserts, however just having all that variety of sweets will make any one smile. There is something for everyone’s taste. For that, I think Kara did awesome with dessert.  I really loved Kristin’s dress. It was traditional style: It was fitted with a beaded top, and a full skirt. Her veil was simple with some sparkle.  I also really loved her hair piece which went perfectly with her dress.  At Chrissy’s wedding, I absolutely loved her overall bridal look. I thought her dress, veil, bouquet, make-up and hair, all came together perfectly. I really liked the pops of pink color. Just so pretty and cute! I have to say that I actually liked Emily’s Christmas holiday decor. It was not like Christmas threw up on their wedding day. It was very tasteful and all the decor elements came together really well. I loved the decor at the ceremony and church. The silver and gold colors were great!

Who won? Congrats to Kristin for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to Turks and Caicos.  I had guessed that either Kristin or Emily would be in first place. So I am not totally surprised about Kristin winning. While I can not account for the food since I wasn’t actually there, I did like the originality, venue, and the dress at Kristin’s wedding. Her mother’s planning all paid off well. All the details came together beautifully. Great job to Kristin and Kristin’s mom for a job well done.  So how did the other three brides score? Emily came in second, Chrissy, in third, and Kara in fourth place. Were you surprised by the results?

Kristin, the winner
