Did you tune into 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?: 

  • Rachele, a bride who wants to bring fun, energy, and music to her wedding. Her traditional wedding ceremony takes place in a beautiful inside space at the venue. Inside there is a white draped alter, candles, and a red aisle runner. The bridesmaids wore a bright red orange colored long dresses which complimented the decor. After the ceremony which was officiated by the groom’s sister, guests head upstairs to cocktail hour. The space was decorated elegantly with gold colored draping on the ceilings, stunning chandeliers, bright linens, and a simple centerpieces with white flowers.  The bride and groom’s grand entrance is to taiko drummers music. Right before the garter toss, the groom performs a dance for his bride. After dinner, guests are on the dance floor and enjoy some line dancing and fun.
  • Nicolle’s, a bride who has team spirit and wants to share that energy with all her guests at her wedding. The day begins at a synagogue where she has her traditional Jewish ceremony. However, before guests find their seats are the ceremony, cocktail hour takes place. Inside the ceremony space, it is decorated with simple decor. There is a white draped chuppah with colorful flowers at each pillar. The colorfulness is shown also with the bridesmaid’s dresses. Each bridesmaid chose their own color and style of dress to walk down the aisle in. After breaking of the glass, the couple is now married, and guests enter the reception room. The grand space is surrounded by blue up-lighting, long white draping, ice sculptures, and long vases with colorful flowers on the guest tables. Since the couple are huge University of Miami fans, the school mascot showed up and school spirit was shared with all.
  • Travia is a bride who is says ” I do”, as she turns 30.  The wedding takes place at a Country Club. The ceremony is set outside overlooking the golf course. The decor was very simple and featured a white archway, white columns with candles down the aisle, and white flowers. The bridesmaids dresses are black and long. The father of the bride wears white as he walks his daughter down the aisle.  After cocktail hour, guests enter the ballroom for the reception. The reception has a black and white color theme. The tables had two standing sparkle decorated candles. After dinner, guests can stop off at the station which served red velvet fried oreos and funnel cake. In addition to celebrating her first day of marriage, Travia changes into a black elegant dress to celebrate her 30th birthday. The bride and groom along with their guests dance the night away on the dance floor.
  • Alex, a  bride who goes retro at her wedding with some DIY details. Her wedding takes place at a lakeside library. Before guests enter the venue, there is a old style typewriter where they can type a note and drop it in a keepsake box. The ceremony is set outside overlooking the water, and is decorated with some unique details. The aisle is decorated with white lanterns stacked on two books, and instead of an alter, there are two tall stacks of books. The bride’s bouquet was made up of paper from books styled like flowers. After a heartfelt ceremony, the cocktail hour takes place inside the venue. The colors of white, purple and turquoise decorated the outside reception space. Each guest table had white lanterns, votive candles as the centerpieces. The father of the bride along with all the guests, really got there dance on.

A Hot Detail:  There was one detail from each wedding that stood out for me. What I thought was so super unique and fun at Rachele’s wedding was the surprise performance of playing with the taiko drummers. I thought that was something totally different and very entertaining for the guests. I think it is also a great way to create a memory for their wedding day. So fun! What I absolutely loved at Nicolle’s wedding was her school spirit shining all day. I loved her high energy she had at her wedding. She seemed to really have a great time, and very happy. That is really awesome because every bride should feel like this on their wedding day. Super fun!  I really loved Travia’s bridal bouquet. It was made up of brooches, bling, and  sparkle. All personally made by the bride. I thought it was gorgoues and very personal. So stunning!  I really liked the idea of Alex’s food choices. They served fifty’s style diner food: sliders, fries, hot dogs, mac and cheese, and steak. Even though I could not taste the food, I loved the concept!

5Who won?: Congrats to Travia for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to Figi.  I was not surprised about Travia winning at all, she seemed to deserve it! While I can not account for the food since I wasn’t actually there, all the other details – venue,  bride’s dress, and originality – were owned by Travia’s wedding. I thought that every detail of her bling birthday wedding bash came together really well. It was not over the top, yet had enough sparkle.  Guests seem to enjoy it and have a good time. Great job Travia! So how did the other three brides score? Alex came in second, Rachele in third, and Nicolle in fourth. Were you surprised by the results?  Love to hear from you, so please share!
