It is evident that despite that the show tries to keep each bride from underscoring the other, that is teach bride's goal. They talk a lot about what they don't like personally instead of looking at the wedding and rating it for what it is. For example, a bride may say I don't like being outside. It is not about you, it is about the bride at that time's wedding. They are so busy being critical that they lose themselves. So selfish.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (9):

You have to give the producers points for not going as crazy with this concept as they could have. Everyone behaves reasonably well -- the sniping is kept to a minimum, and even the worst complaints are balanced out by compliments.

Still, the result isn't the most scintillating television, and ultimately you're left wondering: Why bother? After all, each wedding was, in fact, the best for that particular bride.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
