Survivor-like wedding contest is far from romantic.

Is It Any Good?

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

Wedding Wars combines the rugged competitiveness and scheming behavior of Survivor with all of the drama that comes along with wedding planning. But much of the show's entertainment value comes from watching the couples' relationships being tested as they cope with the pressures of the contest.

The show's focus is on the materialism surrounding a wedding, rather than strengthening the marital relationship or thinking about the long-term commitment that the couples are planning to make. And, like most reality competitions, the series features plenty of arguing, cursing, and drinking. Viewers who like this sort of thing might find it entertaining, but it definitely lacks romance.
