Last week we learned that dreams come true and love is real and reality TV is the way to find your dream lover when Sam Wood, 35, proposed to the girl he selected from among 20-something others on The Bachelor.
In exchange for a “six-figure pay cheque”, Sam ‘n’ Snez will give up all rights to a private and intimate wedding for a televised extravaganza.
So what exactly does a TV wedding entail? Well, it kind of takes the spontaneity out of things.
Imagine the stress and excitement of planning a wedding, and then imagine you had to consult a TV producer about every element of the day from venue to guests to the date.
With a whole film crew present, there’s going to be special lighting, director’s instructions and re-takes to get the exact right shot. I wonder how many times they’ll have to say “I do”?
Not to mention the guests: only the prettiest and shiniest will be shown, so no one will get to see Uncle Norm in his suit from 1970, and cousin Dave drunk on the dance-floor will likely be edited out of the final cut.
