What's the story?
ALONG FOR THE BRIDE is a reality series that follows bridesmaids as they fulfill their duties by helping the bride before and during the big day. As the women attend to the bride's every need, like pulling together gift bags and organizing bachelorette parties, emotions run high and personalities clash. But when the wedding day arrives, they come together and try to make everything run smoothly, so that the bride has the day of her dreams.
Is it any good?
The bridesmaid-centered series Along for the Bride focuses on the final days before the wedding, when the bridesmaids all come together (sometimes for the first time) to celebrate the big day. There's some nuptial drama, but the show creates some humor by assigning each bridesmaid a nickname to reflect her unique personality.
Along for the Bride is milder than some other wedding-themed reality series, and thanks to some lighthearted moments, some folks may find it entertaining. But if you're looking for something that features lots of romance or a complex story, there simply isn't much here.

Why are wedding-themed reality shows so popular? Is it the romance? The white dress? The idea of people falling in love? Or is it the emotional stress that comes with planning a wedding that makes them fun to watch?
