What Happened to the Bridezilla Reality Show?

WEtv had a great hit reality show called Bridezillas. The show began in June 2004, and women shared their stories of getting engaged to be married and then planning their weddings based on their busy schedules. The show captured the women making plans for their weddings but added some humor and drama. The tenth season aired in March 2013. When fans thought this was the end, WEtv announced that the show was going into syndication. The twelfth and final season aired on March 15, 2019.

A spin-off, Marriage Boot Camp, followed five of the couples on Bridezillas. Fans of Bridezillas were captivated by the brides and all of the drama that went along with planning their weddings. What happened to the Bridezilla reality show?

Bridezillas’s Episodes

Each episode of Bridezillas focused on two different brides-to-be and their stories. Time was split equally between their stories. The brides would share how they met their fiances, from how they met to how they fell madly in love. While telling their stories, the brides would also share what their dream wedding would look like. Most of them had some extravagant weddings in mind, but they weren’t sure they could make it happen on their budgets.

The episodes then would dive into every moment of planning their wedding. Viewers would be introduced to the wedding party, the fiance, the families, and the wedding planners. As much as the show wanted to be a way to show brides-to-be that wedding planning is stressful, there were a lot of positive moments on the show. However, it became so popular due to tension, uncontrolled feelings, and emotions while trying to plan the perfect wedding. The whole idea is that the bride is the only one who gets what she wants on her special day.

Bridezillas Were Too Serious

During the show’s third season, a new executive producer came on board. Her name is Laura Halerpin. She was ready to take the show in a completely new direction. She felt it was a bit ‘sleepy’ and needed to jazz it up. She turned the focus of Bridezillas into a more negative and dramatic one.

Halperin told viewers, “There really weren’t many wedding shows on. I think that we said what we needed to say, which is sometimes the ladies take things a little too seriously.” After the brides appeared on the show, many of them told viewers that they should have just eloped and not had the stress of a big wedding. Their stories were all captured for the show, and most of them really didn’t think all of this drama and hard work was worth it.

Bridezillas was a very popular show on WEtv, and it is available on several streaming platforms for those who would like to watch it again. The show’s drama will never be recreated, but fans can rewatch all of the madness that they went through when planning their weddings.
