TLC’s Four Weddings Episode Recap: February 22nd

Did you watch last night’s episode of “Four Weddings” on TLC?  What are your thoughts of the four brides and their weddings? What details stood out for you? If you missed it, we have a recap of the episode:

Who are the Brides?: 

  • Irina, a bride who wants to share her Russian traditions and then some. What a better place than to have a wedding at a Russian restaurant. Inside the restaurant, there are tall ceilings, beautiful artwork. red and white colored decor, and some Christmas decorations. The room is laid out in theater style, with guest tables on three different levels. The ceremony started with the bridesmaids in their short red dresses, and then the bride with her parents walking her down the aisle. Under white drapery with red and white flowers, the couple stands. After breaking of the glass, they are married. After enjoying cocktail hour and appetizers, Irina and her husband enter from above and float down while inside a Russian egg structure. Dinner is served and guests seem to really enjoy it.
  • Dana is a bride who loves the outdoors and has a ranch style wedding. The day starts outside at a horse ranch, where the ceremony takes place. The ceremony chairs are arranged in a circle under a tree, surrounded by white rose petals. Around the circle of chairs are mason jars with candles in them. At sunset, the ceremony begins and the bride enters from a old classic white car.  During cocktail hour, guests can enjoy seeing the horses in their stables. The reception inside had a rustic and warm feel. The tables had burlap, gold chargers, candles, and white flower centerpieces. On the dance-floor during crazy hour, Santa shows up, and dances with all the guests.
  • Geysell is a bride who is in love with all things Paris. She has a french style wedding with all the Parisian elements. The ceremony took place outside surrounded by tall trees, and waterfalls. Down the red colored aisle runner,  the groomsmen wore Latin style outfits, and the bridesmaids in green long dresses. After cocktail hour and some appetizers, guests are invited inside a rustic style space for the reception. There was a long rectangular table in the middle and then round tables around. The guest tables had a champagne colored over lay linens,gold satin napkins, and a green, white, and pink flower centerpieces in a gold vase. Following dinner, there was a nice array of desserts including macaroons made by the bride.  During the “crazy hour”, there were sexy lady dancers dancing with all the guests.
  • Kimberly loves romance and the color red.She went with the white hot romance theme for her wedding.  Her wedding took place at a golf course clubhouse. The day begins on the golf course, where her ceremony takes place. On the gazebo, there are red roses and other red flowers with hanging crystals. Down the aisle, there is white draping with red roses tied to the white chairs.  The ceremony featured her two dogs dressed in suits, and then the bride and her father down the aisle. Inside the clubhouse the colors of red and white are seen throughout. The guest tables had a white tree with hanging candles and crystals, all inside a crystal box full of red roses. The dance floor featured drummers and guests danced the night away.

Cool factor:  There was one detail from each wedding that stood out for me. What I thought was super unique at  Irina’s reception was the Russian performance. There were dancers, music, acrobatic dancers, magic, and a tiger. Yes, a tiger! I thought that it was a great idea to include this type of entertainment. I thought it tied in to the whole Russian theme. It was amazing!   I fell in love with the personal vows that the Dana and her groom shared at their ceremony. It was personal and from the heart, pure romance. I just love when couples share their love with each other in this manner.  I loved Geysell’s brooch bouquet! I think it was so beautiful and a nice touch for her French theme. I loved the colors and how it went well with the whole color scheme of her wedding.  At Kimberly’s  wedding, I absolute loved her wedding cake. It was a six tier white cake with red roses and bling. I thought it was very romantic and was perfect for her romantic wedding theme. So stunning!

The winner, Kimberly

The winner, Kimberly

Who won?: Congrats to Kimberly for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to the coast of Barbados. So I am not totally surprised about Kimberly 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 Kimberly’s wedding. She has mentioned that she had planned her wedding by watching this show of “Four Wedding”. You know what? It paid off!  All the details of red, white, and romance were put together so beautifully. Kimberly  planned a romantic affair. Great job Kimberly!   So how did the other three brides score? Dana came in second, and guess what? Irina and Geysell tie for third place! Were you surprised by the results? Love to hear from you, so please share!
