Well, I watched Platinum Weddings on the WE network last night for the first time, and I have to say, I most likely won’t be doing that again. I am completely unimpressed. For anyone who doesn’t know, the show is about over-the-top weddings that really have no budget. To add to the fact that these weddings lack originality, the show isn’t well-done. It didn’t show the few details I was wondering about. The focus is on how much money was spent. I ordinarily love any and all wedding shows, but this one was quite the snooze. I still sat through three episodes, hoping to find something inspiring. Instead, what I found was a total lack of creativity. I’ve always thought that the tighter the budget, the more creative a bride has to be. This further proved my point. Sure, who wouldn’t love a martini bar made of ice, complete with the couple’s monogram etched into the ice? Oh yeah, me. All this over-the-top wedding stuff is definitely not my style. The weddings were all very formal, and pretty standard. I would love to have the money spent on those weddings. One of them actually had a “budget” of $350,000. I can’t believe someone would spend that much on a single day. I would much rather spend it on a fabulous house, shoe collection, and car – all three!
Anyway, if you haven’t watched this show, and were considering it, just… don’t.
