Last night, The Style Channel did dreamy brides-to-be a bignormous disservice. Producers followed up with couples featured on "Whose Wedding Is it Anyways" in a special TV show called "After the Vows."
It was like watching botched plastic surgery. One minute the Playboy-Bunny-in-training is flashing her perky pair. The next minute she's crying over her worn out eggplants.
But on "After the Vows," these married women had made their life-time commitments to squash-types who couldn't be surgically "fixed."
Quote from one bride: "I was so busy planning my wedding, I didn't think about what would happen afterwards."
What did happen? Couples therapy.
Quote from HER groom: "I don't think divorce should be an option for people married less than a year."
Woa. I didn't want to hear this. Bring back the $500,000 wedding extravaganza, with the 7-tier wedding cake and 5 piece orchestra. I want to pick out my color schemes, not my divorce attorney.
What do you think? Are these wedding shows skewing the reality of married life? Is it more like THIS?
