Yesterday was the two part season premiere of the strange television series, and it began with a competition in Seattle. A circus, a backyard wedding complete with tattoos, a canoe entrance, and a fairly traditional bride compete for a tropical honeymoon. And, let me tell you, the claws come out when weddings and beaches come into play.
I must say that the last thing I would ever want to do is make my wedding a competition, but hey, if it works for these people, whatever. I would also like to mention that though some of the wedding details are very cute, others literally make me cringe. It's funny how different people's taste can be.
Anyway, part one was extremely out there. The first wedding was actually beautiful with a Native American roots because of the groom’s heritage. Bride Brianna picked a lake-side venue to bring in an aquatic theme as well. I personally thought it was absolutely beautiful, and it seemed to flow perfectly. If I could have chosen a winner, it definitely would have been her.
Wedding two frightened me a bit. A backyard bash was complete with a vintage style and tattoos as party favors. Yes, you heard me, there were tattoos as party favors. Let me say that I would have definitely skipped out on that one. Bride Monica married a man who was thirteen years younger by the shore near her house in a loud and crazy ceremony, which made me a little uncomfortable.
One bride commented, “Being at Monica’s ceremony was kind of like being at a football game.”
The third wedding included a Cinderella entrance and a gorgeous countryside venue. I really thought it was pretty, but kind of boring. In fact, I’m kind of at a loss on what to say because nothing was really special about it. I will say that Bride Karen was beautiful in the ceremony though.
If you thought tattoos were strange for a wedding, what about an actual circus? It was not a circus theme, but it was literally a circus. People flipping and hanging on silks were pretty much the norm. Then, of course, Bride Kari entered the ceremony from the sky, so I suppose that was pretty unique. The wedding was completed by a food truck dinner, a beautiful dress, and an ice cream bar.
Now, it’s time for them to rank each other, and we ultimately find out who won the competition. Each wedding had a theme name, and viewers at home could vote on Facebook with hashtags for who they thought had the best big day. This, of course, had no effect on the outcome, however.
“We went to four very different weddings. It’s anyone’s game right now,” said Monica.
With a score of 82 points out of a possible 120, the circus-themed wedding hosted by Kari beat out the competition. Second place was taken by country-themed Karen, third was aquatic bride Brianna, and fourth was eclectic and tattooed Monica.
The race was close with only nine points between first and fourth place. A honeymoon in the Dominican Republic was awarded to first place, and the Four Weddings season was kicked off.
What do you think about a wedding competition? Let me know, and happy kommenting :)
