Is It Any Good?

This uneven series highlights the notion that couples are often stressed out trying to plan a wedding that looks and feels like those promoted by the multimillion dollar bridal industry. Each couple faces different challenges, from over-planning wedding activities to coping with cultural differences and controlling people. However, the actual process by which their problems are resolved are limited to just a few scenes. As a result, there's no real picture of what the bride and groom are changing to make the overall experience better.

The biggest flaw in the The Wedding Coach is the coach itself. Jamie Lee's intentions are good, and the messages she tries to send about what matters when it comes to planning a wedding are sound. But her overall experience on the matter is limited to planning her own wedding and writing a book about it, which leaves little other than her sometimes-bawdy, and often swear-laced, humor to add substance to the series. As a result, it's hard to take her, or the show, very seriously.
