Platinum Weddings TV show

Have anyone seen the tv show "Platinum Weddings" on WE channel?  I can't believe what some people pay for weddings and they're not even celebrities!  One couple spent $1.3 milion on their wedding paid for by their parents!  Unbelievable!  http://www.wetv.com/platinum-weddings

I'm addicted to that show. It's quite depressing actually.

Okay just saw the guy buy a $190K Bentley convertible as a surprising wedding gift for his new wife!  WTH!  It's funny that I just discovered this show.  It's pretty fun watching all the details into the food, dress, ambiance, decor, etc.  The planners do a great job too!

I friggin LOVE that show.  Depressing?  Eh, maybe, but at the same time, sometimes it's nice to feel "normal." 


I will say, that while for the most part, I'm disgusted by the amount of money these people spend, the 5 day celebration in Cabo (it was on a few weeks ago) was ABSOLUTELY something we'd do.  Everyting from the location, to the menu to her dress were all things I'd do, given the budget.

It's good to be rich and have lots of options! I'm running off to Las Vegas. It feels decadent and glamorous but was really very affordable.

Nova - same here.  We'll spend the bulk of money on the honeymoon and going out, rather than the wedding itself.  :)

Ditto here; last thing you want to do is have this big extravagant affair, and know that some people are financially strained to attend.

I'd like to think that even if I had money to burn, that I wouldn't be able to justify spending that much dinero on a wedding! I would however take a six month honeymoon!!!

Its depressing to watch for some people because we all wish we could make OUR DAY that special (everything in your wedding is just perfect!). it is Ridiculous in this world how much you could spend in one thing (like lights for reception 80k) when kids are starving in other countries.

like to mark the one year "pre-niversary"  i think that would be an awesome idea! to have it exactly one year before the actual wedding date!!
