Wedding Reality TV Shows

Heartwarming Stories or Train Wrecks: What Kind of Wedding Reality Show Do You Prefer?

Like I said before, wedding-themed reality shows are everywhere this Summer. Of course, it's that time of year, but suddenly it feels like all the networks are rolling out wedding show after wedding show. For the most part, they fall into one of two categories: those we watch for the emotional stories and those we watch to see a total train wreck.

Take the CW's Hitched or Ditched and TNT's new show Wedding Day as examples. On Hitched or Ditched, the couples are mostly dysfunctional, so more often than not someone will get "ditched" in front of all their friends and family. Lovely! Not very heartwarming but there is a kind of guilty pleasure in viewing it all.

On the other hand, Wedding Day features couples with a traumatic and highly emotional backstory. The couple featured in the pilot were chosen because the bride was in a horrific car accident. Yeesh. The whole production is engineered to make sure you cry by the end.

So which of these do you prefer: the train wreck wedding or the emotionally wrenching?

"Say Yes to the Dress" is great! It's like the "House Hunters" of wedding TV.

Neither. I have wedding season overdose at the moment. It makes me never want to say "I do."

I LOVE bridezillas.and platinum weddings. I also love wedding cakes. I don't really like the emotional ones, they bore me.

I like sweet wedding stories. Nobody truly deserves a train wreck of a special day.
