TLC’s Four Weddings Episode Recap: January 25th

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? Here is a recap of the episode:

Who are the Brides?: 

  • Kale, a bride who is non-traditional and wants to dance the night away at her wedding. Being non traditional, the wedding takes place at a Design Center in San Francisco, California. The ceremony featured some elegant decor of beautiful trees, candles, and white orchids. Prior to the Kale walking down the aisle, there was a dance piece performed by a dancer.  Personal vows were shared with each other and also with Kale’s daughter. Variety of food buffet style, simple tree flower centerpieces, and a personal dance from the bride, all featured at Kale’s reception. Four costume changes took place with Kale: ceremony, dance performance, dance cocktail dress, and a dress for cutting cake and end of evening.
  • Jennifer cruises with her groom and all her guests around San Francisco Bay on her wedding day. Prior to ceremony, champagne was handed to each guest. On the top deck of the yacht, the ceremony took place with silver and purple colors, and a ivy covered arch. Down at the lower deck of the boat, the reception took place with decor of white linens, glass vases with orchids floating inside, candles, and purple sashes on chairs.
  • Christa a bride who has waited 12 years to say ” I do”, gets married on a golf course.  The ceremony was set with white tulle and black bows down the aisle, a white rose decorated alter, all with a backdrop of the golf course. After a short ceremony, guests go inside for the reception. The colors of Christa’s wedding were black and white with some bling. The centerpieces were glass vases with white flowers, and rhinestones. The tables had white linens, black sashes on the chairs, and wedding favors packaged in small black boxes.
  • Araceli a bride who features some of her Mexican heritage at her wedding. Set in a beautiful garden setting, the ceremony featured a gazebo with hanging jewels, white roses flowers, and tall green trees. Once they both were under the gazebo, in their ceremony, they had a wedding laso put around them which was part of the Mexican ceremony tradition. The cocktail hour had passed appetizers, food stations, and the Mariachi band playing in the background. The reception was also set outside on the green lawn with the lovely trees around. Her something blue colors was evident in her decor. The guest tables had  silver rhinestone chargers, and white vase with white, blue, and purple flowers. There was also blue lighting on the trees. The dance floor had line dancing, and full of energy and fun.

Cool factor:  There was one detail from each wedding that stood out for me. What I loved at Kale’s reception was the ice cream bar. I know I did not taste the ice cream, however it looked so good and you can not go wrong with ice cream. I think besides the wedding cake, it gives guests something fun and good to have for dessert. Who does not like ice cream?    I liked the personal touch that  Jennifer  had for her wedding favors. Jennifer and her family made ring shaped cookies for all their guests. I also liked that the bride herself handed them out to each guest as they walked off the boat. What a great personal touch! What I thought was really sweet at Christa’s wedding was the Southern Rock music tribute to her dad who had passed away a few years ago. I thought it was a great way to bring energy and love to such a special day in Christa’s life.  At Araceli’s wedding, she wanted to incorporate her Mexican heritage, and so at the processional, a Mariachi Band played music. As Araceli and her groom walked the aisle, and then guests then followed, the Mariachi band played. I thought this was very unique and a great way to incorporate the Mexican culture.

Who won? Congrats to Kale for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to Caribbean islands. I was not surprised  at all about the results.  While I can not account for the food since I wasn’t actually there, I did like the originality, venue, and the dress at Kale’s wedding. Her non-traditional style wedding really showed with four costume changes, a design center as the wedding location,  and her personal dance that she performed. Way to put on a great wedding, Kale!  So how did the other three brides score? Christa came in second, Araceli in third, and Jennifer in fourth place. Were you surprised by the results?
