Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series, which features reality stars Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott planning glamorous weddings with distinctive themes, is overall fairly mild. But much of the focus is on the material things associated with a wedding. The show also contains some occasional iffy language ("hell," "bitch"; a few bleeped curse words), subtle references to the wedding night, and drinking (champagne, cocktails) at receptions.
Is It Any Good?
Like the other installments of the Tori & Dean franchise, this series features the actors working together to create some sort of on-camera drama out of their personal lives -- this time by taking Tori's interest in party planning to a whole new level. What makes it refreshing is that unlike their other reality shows, the focus here is as much on the happiness and satisfaction of the engaged couples as it is about themselves.
The pug-themed weddings and large Bollywood-type bashes present creative planning details and challenges that makes the show light hearted and entertaining. Some folks might even be impressed by how well the reality stars pull off these events, too. But it also leaves you wondering about what career the duo will try next in order to get their time in the spotlight.
