Along for the bride fan.

I really enjoyed this show, however, probably best to put the little ones to bed first.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
