Rich Bride - Poor Bride

i'm sitting here watching this marathon show and i'm wondering how many couples actually stay within their budget versus going over...

one couple went over by ony $5K, while another couple (complete zilla btw) doubled their budget (yikes)

does anyone else watch this show??

what ideas/tips/advice have you gotten from these real-life examples of staying within budget?

My fiance and I LOVE that show!
I tivo it so I don't miss it.

The only think I've learned is how not to talk to people involved in your planning. The brides are terrible :)

I LOVE that show too! I don't know that I have learned anything, except maybe to be firm on my budget. When I go over in an area, I always take it out of somewhere else. If you make those decisions, you never have to go over. We are currently several thousand under budget.

I love all wedding planning shows... I have serious TIVO addiction... It's starting to erase other things because it can't all fit! It's time to stage an intervention!

I watch the wedding shows too! I used to love them (I've been watching since way before I ever got engaged), except, I was watching the Bridezillas marathon this weekend and it was totally stressing me out. I was having major anxiety watching it- especially the parts where things go wrong. I am having anxiety thinking about it now! Yikes! I think I need an intervention. Can you tell, I am stressing a bit about my own wedding? :)

I love that show. I was able to stay within budget. I didn't completely go crazy with my budget because I had a point to prove to the hubbie. But now I'm really glad i went under because he recently got laid off.

it amazes me how some of the parents and fh's take the verbal abuse...

i hate whiney biotches - i dont know why i watch the show - fh couldnt stomach it - i think it was the episode with the one chick who just kept screaching at her fh about everything - wait that's all of them!

i would have to pimp slap my daughter if she ever thought she could talk to me like that...

Out of all the bridal shows out there (and I swear there are a million of them out there these days!) This one is my favorite! I sooo budget conscious that this show just sucks me in.

I totally agree with you bride2be... It's so depressing to see how much they spend on Platinum weddings! It's unbelievable to see how much they spend. Bridezilla annoys the heck out of me but yet i can't stop watching! LOL!
