This show could've been a big hit
Bridezillas was one of the most surreal shows I've ever watched in my entire life. Everything about it was completely different than what I anticipated it would be which was quite a disappointment to say the least. I had a hard time going through the episodes without getting irritated with the way everyone was acting. The bride would usually have anger outbursts, wouldn't stop cussing, rude and self-centred. The three brides that were in the two episodes had a hard time controlling their emotions and although they wanted everything to be perfect with the way they planned and envisioned their dream, we all have to understand that not everything in life goes the way we planned. Regardless, this shouldn't mean that we would blame everything on everyone around who is trying to help instead of being attacked (lots of familial problems). Another point, was the extra emphasis on materialism where the brides' focus isn't on perfecting the vows and walking down the aisle with her loved one, but instead with how expensive everything should be and how the dress should look like. One of the brides said that if the dress didn't fit her there would be no wedding and was serious about it (the wedding was two days away). One of the few good points about this show was the proper body representation of the brides and that the focus wasn't about creating an ideal body image. The brides would show their struggles in dealing with their body weight and fear that the dress might not fit the way they imagined it would. In my opinion, this show could've been a big hit and could've excelled all the other wedding shows if slight improvements were made. The brides can prevent the cussing and try to control themselves if a problem occurs instead of having mental breakdowns. Also, showing some respect to those people around them can certainly be another tip.
