A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
While the show does have some positive messages about being married and working together, the over-riding take-away is that "perfect" is an absolute must when it comes to weddings, and spending huge amounts of money can make you happy. The clients' every whim is catered to, and no expense is spared, with no mention of how the couples are able to pay for it all.
Positive Role Models
Event planners Jung Lee and Josh Brooks demonstrate how a married couple can not only work together but also work better, with their individual skills coming together. But while Jung talks about how she values her time with her kids in the early morning, that's about the only time she and Josh see their children -- they spend far more time working without a kid in sight. The fact that they (and everyone else) caters to the featured couples' every whim is also a little bit iffy.
Products & Purchases
The show serves as a promotional vehicle for Fete, the party planning company run by the show's stars, Jung Lee and Josh Brooks.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Since this is a show about weddings and parties, there are frequent scenes of social drinking, including wine with dinner and toasts with sparkling wine.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this wedding-centric reality series is about excess and fancy parties, with no expense spared. Perfection is the goal, with less attention paid to the featured couples' actual marriages than to the events celebrating them. Few people can afford the services of the featured party planners, and the events are all but over the top. There's some social drinking by adults.
Is It Any Good?
If you like weddings and extravagant parties, then Wedded to Perfection is fun to watch -- once or twice. But after a few episodes, it becomes a lot of the same old, same old. True, Lee's fantastic designs vary, but the process seldom does. Furthermore, the demands of the frequently spoiled clients become more grating than not.
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.
