Did anybody see that on VH1?

It was such an exquisite wedding

What did everybody think of it???????

They spent over 1,000,000 dollars on it.

Did anyone think it was worth it?

They spent over 100,000,000 dollars on it.

Awww, I didn't see it which is too bad because lately I have been obsessed with wedding shows, magazines, books, you name it!!!!

Although I didn't see it I have to say that I would NEVER think it was worth it to spend that much money even though we have a pretty high cost wedding planned that is just too over the top even if I did have the money.

as far as I know they have had two episodes of this show. One wedding cost a little over 1 million and the other 2.5 million, both unbelievable amounts of money
but no where near 100 million dollars.

Didn't see it, but I watch Platinum Weddings - those are regularly around 300-800 k budgets, and I can't imagine what else they could have "left out"! A million dollar wedding - I mean, even if it's 10 hours, that comes out to 100k an hour or 1666.67 a minute. Wow.

I just saw the VH1 Big fat fabulous wedding. This episode was set in NJ. I think it got so over the top. The groom was using it as a way to show off the place he owns by inviting everyone he's ever met.

It ends up the wedding actually took place 2 years ago!

Here is alink to an article about the flowers:

I thought it was crazy! I did like the idea of having a party all night long and then serving a breakfast buffet, that was cool

Spending over $250,000 on flowers is ridiculous but if you have unlimited funds more power to you

This event was held about .5 seconds from where I work. The groom was the owner of the reception site and very well known in our area. He has soooo many contacts and friends in the wedding world. He payed much less then things were worth because of this.
I wish I had caught the special on VH1 because the event is like an urban legend around these parts! Hahaha!

That's actually a Polish wedding tradition - to party all night and the close family and friends stay until an early morning meal. (sometimes breakfast, sometimes leftovers from the "feast".) It actually has a name in Polish "Poprawiny". :)

Platinum weddings is on WE, but the times are all so different, I never know when it's on - usually after Bridezillas. ;)

I saw the Jersey episode and the Texas episode. The Jersey couple were a disaster, he had cheated on her a few times already, and the couple just didn't seem to respect each other very much.

I had a big, fat wedding (a couple of them actually). Our parents split the bill because it was really important to them (we were the first of our siblings getting married) to have a great wedding. I just wanted to marry my soulmate and giving our parents the wedding they wanted was the quickest way to that goal. We're a mixed religion couple, so we had a Hindu ceremony in the morning with a lunch reception for 350 and then a catholic ceremony and dinner reception for 750 (no, I don't know that many people either). And it was all done without a wedding planner OR the internet!!! But it changed me forever in that now I am an organization freak. But everyone will attest to the fact that I was never a Bridezilla, because with considerate organizing you don't need to be. I never had the "it's all about ME" attitude. I think that just makes you come off as ugly and selfish. At least the Texas bride was grateful for her parents giving her the wedding of her dreams, that goes a long way.

As a nine year veteran of marriage, I gotta say that marriage is so much more fufilling than even the most lavish weddding could ever hope to be.

Yea I thought in the second episode the bride came off just a tad bit selfish but in the end she was really appreciative that her parents spent 2,000,000 dollars on her wedding

even thought they spent more on the wedding then the first episode I felt that the second episode was way more realistic.

LuLu, are you Polish?! If so, I think I'll agree with your DBF and have us sent to Maury for DNA testing!! We've got to be related!! :rotfl:

Haha, yes I am. As long as we don't have to be on an episode with that woman who has tested 13 guys to see if they're the father of her kid. ;) That is so funny!

I think I saw that did she test 13 guys and none of them were the father?
