TLC’s Holiday Special of “Four Weddings”

Who are the Brides?: 

  • Nancy absolutely loves Christmas and everything that it is. She is a Santa loving bride who wants to bring the Christmas spirit to all her guests at her wedding. The ceremony took place at a beautiful church where they had a traditional Catholic ceremony. The ceremony featured simple holiday decor, red rose petals, and bridesmaids wearing red dresses. The cocktail hour served a variety of food options for guests to choose from. Including a full size pig! The reception was held in gorgeous ballroom with a snowman, Christmas tree, and tall glass centerpieces which had snow-covered branches, a wreath, and red roses. Guests were handed out Santa Claus hats and Reindeer ears to wear and have some holiday fun. Santa even showed up and handed out candy canes! The live band played all night and guests danced the night away.
  • Davone a winter princess bride who enchants her guests at her wedding. The ceremony was a magical place. The room was decorated with all white decor and blue up-lighting. There were beautiful white branches with white twinkle lights, Christmas trees, white chairs, and white flowers. A true winter wonderland feeling.  After the cocktail hour, guests go upstairs to the ballroom where the reception took place. The winter wonderland theme and all its sparkles continued in the reception. The ballroom featured a white cake with snowflakes and sparkles, sparkle table numbers, diamond ring napkin holders, and beautiful white branched centerpieces. The dancing was full of high energy and fun.  Davone also changed into a second dress which showed off her bling bling shoes.
  • Lauren is a bride who wants to go back in time and have a Victorian Christmas wedding. The ceremony was at a church which featured white flowers, a cute little girl walking down the aisle, long flowing Victorian style dress with a long veil, and a red bridal bouquet.  Lauren loves the snow and had it snow as guests walked into the venue where the cocktail hour and reception took place. The elegant ballroom had hanging large chandeliers, candelabras with flowers surrounding it on the guest tables, with all that highlighted with nice gold lighting. Dinner was a buffet with variety of choices. Not only were the guests having a good time on the dance floor, but the couple as well. Lauren took off her groom’s shirt and started to dance with him on the dance floor!
  • Sakinah brings in the New Year with all her guests at her wedding. A beautiful glassed room is where the ceremony takes place. There are white flowers, a few holiday decor, and white twinkle lights above. She surprised all her guests including her groom by wearing a red dress at the ceremony. It was a beautiful long dress which flowed open wide at the bottom and was accessorized with a lovely red hairpiece. The reception space had red, black, and white colors, huge flower arrangements on top of a tall vase on all the reception tables, and lots of line dancing. Since it was New Years Eve, guests got to wear New Years Eve hats and tiaras, and use the noise makers and blow-horns. Sakinah changed into her second dress which was a fitted red dress. She was ready to celebrate the New Year countdown.

Cool factor:  There was one detail from each holiday themed wedding that stood out for me. Nancy’s dress was a form-fitting beautiful dress which had glittering twigs on the front, and tulle cupped sleeves. The dress fit her like a glove, and was just perfect for her. I really loved her dress!  What I loved at Davone’s wedding was the personal vows shared between her and her partner Tiffany. The vows were very touching and heartfelt. You just could tell how in love this couple was and that true love was there for everyone to feel and experience. It was just magical and special, just like her winter wonderland theme. I really enjoyed it.  Lauren’s reception featured a special performance of bagpipes dedicated to Lauren’s groom. Her groom is a firefighter and this was a way to celebrate him. I thought this was very personal and a special way to include the groom and highlight what he does. I think for the most part, brides will say it is their day, but it really is a day for the groom too. So I thought this was a great way to incorporate him. What I really liked at Sakinah’s wedding was the whole idea of having a New Years Eve theme wedding. What a great way to start the New Year with your new husband and all your guests.  There was a countdown, red balloons were dropped, and then a total party vibe was created. How unique and fun to go to a wedding for a New Years Eve party? How fun!

Who won? Congrats to Nancy for winning!  She and her husband won an all expenses paid honeymoon to a ski and spa resort in Alaska. I was actually surprised about Nancy winning. I am normally pretty good about guessing who the winner will be each week, so was shocked when Santa came out the limo.  Do you want to know who I thought would win? Devone! 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 Devone’s wedding, easily exceeding the rest. I thought that every detail of her wedding reflected her diamond winter wonderland theme. In any case, Nancy did have a killer dress and fit her perfectly! I did love it, so great job Nancy!  So how did the other three brides score? Lauren came in second, Devone in third, and Sakinah in fourth place. Were you surprised by the results like I was?
