TLC’s “Four Weddings” Episode November 29th

Who are the Brides?: 

  • Becky is an over the top bride who wanted to wow her guests at her wedding. The wedding took place at their home which was transformed into a circus theme setting. As guests entered the backyard, there was a ticket booth with a ticket person who  provided guests with programs. The ceremony featured a stage where the couple, best man, maid of honor, and officiant stood.  The groom was the master of ceremonies and welcomed all the guests before the bride and her 1940’s bridal party walked down the aisle. The ceremony was very unique as they had a reenactment of how the couple met with improv actors playing it out. The reception space was also outside and featured wild animals, dinner stations, fun circus decor, and a performance of a twirling fire show.
  • Carrie a fairytale princess bride who had a fairytale wedding out on sea. The wedding took place on a beautiful yacht where all the festivities took place. The ceremony decor was simple yet featured lovely purple colors and flowers. The captain of the ship married the princess and her Prince Charming. The theme of fairytale wedding was featured all throughout the wedding. The guest favors were stuffed animal prince frogs with kiss marks all over them. The reception continued with a money dance, a cupcake cutting, and stunning views of the San Francisco Bay for guests to enjoy.
  • Evelyn is a bride who celebrates her ten year anniversary with her husband at their second wedding. Since the first time around they did not have a traditional wedding, this time, they had a traditional Filipino Catholic ceremony.The ceremony took place at a beautiful church and featured fuchsia, pink, and white colors, flowers in vases, and the couple’s daughters walking their mom down the aisle. The Filipino Catholic ceremony featured drapery wrapped around the couple, and a unity rope which tied them together. The reception was at unique location and took place at the Space and Science Center in Oakland, California. Guests enjoyed a dinner buffet and then had the opportunity to walk around the museum and enjoy some of the interesting exhibits. Some exhibits like trying to land a space shuttle on the moon, or taking a photo in a space suit.
  • Tanaya is hopeless romantic bride who had a vintage romantic wedding. Set at a public park, the ceremony had mason jars with flowers hanging from the ceremony chairs, personal touching vows, and a flow of bubbles in the air once the couple was married. The vintage romantic feel continued at the groom’s family home. The cocktail hour took place in the front of the house and guests enjoyed various types of cheese plates.  The backyard served as the reception space and was perfect for the romantic garden feel. With hanging paper flowers on the trees, glass jars with flowers at each guest table, and beautiful greenery, the backyard was set as a rustic romantic setting. Food trucks were parked outside with various choices for dinner. Guests walked up, put in their order, and sat back down to eat their dinner. Dessert were little bags of beignets which guests seem to enjoy.

Cool factor:  There was one detail from each wedding that stood out for me. What I loved at Becky’s wedding was that instead of a traditional cake cutting, they actually cut a piece of pie. Various pies were also shared with their guests to enjoy. I think it is great because it totally goes with the whole circus theme, and its not traditional. How fun!   Carrie’s dress was a gorgeous big ball gown dress which flowed out so beautifully.  Her groom is blind and so she wanted the dress to have many great textures so he can feel them. I thought how wonderful and sweet this is, so the groom can imagine how she looks on their wedding day. That even though he can not “see” her in her dress, he could still enjoy his beautiful bride. I loved this!   Evelyn’s wedding was a family affair as both of their children were incorporated into their wedding. Not only at the ceremony, but the reception as well. The two girls performed a special dance for their parents. I thought this was such a sweet idea that not only the parents enjoyed but their guests as well. What I thought was absolutely unique at Tanaya’s wedding was the rustic outside door which had two flower displays on top, and set as their backdrop for their ceremony. Instead of a traditional altar, they had this beautiful door which totally brought in the vintage romantic feel. I had to rewind that part and see that door again! That is how much I was amazed by it.

Who won? Congrats to Tanaya for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to Mexico.  I was not surprised about Tanaya 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, dress, and originality – were owned by Tanaya’s wedding, easily exceeding the rest. I thought that every detail of her wedding reflected her vintage romantic theme. You can tell the true love that she shared with her groom because it was evident in every aspect of her wedding. It looked like a happy, fun, and lovely wedding to be at, and I’m sure viewers (like me) could tell how in love the couple was. Great job Tanaya!  So how did the other three brides score? Becky came in second, Evelyn in third, and Carrie in fourth place. Were you surprised by the results?
