The Greed That Precedes Marriage Her Big Day is His Worst Nightmare

A woman�s wedding is a special day, one that should be as flawless as possible. Months and sometimes years can go into its preparation. The total cost of the occasion can be a meager thousand dollars for the frugal, up to several thousand or millions for the obsessed.

A woman�s wedding is a special day, one that should be as flawless as possible. Months and sometimes years can go into its preparation. The total cost of the occasion can be a meager thousand dollars for the frugal, up to several thousand or millions for the obsessed.

The women featured in Bridezillas tend to be the later: brides who could quite possibly kill their grooms for the ultimate wedding � if only the men weren�t required for its execution. Tantrums are thrown and friends insulted; four letter words fly furiously as dollars are vacuumed from parents� and grooms� pockets. No one is safe from the wrath of these brides to be.

Viewers will pity the disc jockeys, decorators, and dressmakers of the event as they endure hours of complaints from the bride, and sometimes her family. More saddening, however, are the poor husbands who will wed these maniacs. Many brides featured do not see marriage as a sacred institution and lifelong bond, but a chance to outdo their girlfriends in extravagance and invoke envy.

Unfortunately, these girls also fail to realize that the average wedding guest has no interest in what the bride is wearing, which DJ is playing, or how expensive the ceremony was. Most have arrived to congratulate their friend or family member for reaching a new stage in life. What attendees will remember is whether they were entertained, not the couple�s $10 thousand cake.

Despite some of the participants� horrendous attitudes, viewers have remained intrigued by Bridezillas. The program�s resounding success has spawned a total of seven seasons, with no immediate end in sight.
