‘Bridezillas’ is an American reality television series that airs on WE tv. The series first premiered on June 1, 2004. In 2001, the first two seasons were produced, and they premiered on Metro TV. In 2004, the show started with its debut on WE tv. Later on, it became one of the most famous and highest rated programs on WE tv.
The show is narrated by Mindy Burbano, Laura Halperin, and Jamie Zimmer. September Films is the production company backing the show, which has Jeff Collins, David Green, Laura Halperin, Lauren P. Gellert, and Suzanne Murch as the executive producers. Mary Pelloni also served as an executive producer from 2004 to 2006.
‘Bridezillas’ revolves around women who are brides-to-be. After their engagements, they get busy picking wedding attires, location and other formalities that it some details get left out leading for them to neglect their fashion planning for the big day. Numerous engaged women showcase their journeys from the first day of meeting their partners to their marriage days. These women are ready to cross boundaries if anyone gets in the way of their wedding.
The name “Bridezilla” is derived from the combination of fictional rampaging monster named “Godzilla” and the word “bride” making us understand how tough and impossible a bride can be. This word was used for the first time by a Boston Globe writer, Diane White, in 1995. Although the article was centered around tacky brides and the problems they caused on their wedding day, the term never really caught on to pop culture until this 2004 show aired. There have been plenty of films that have based their plots on this trope as well, most famously ‘Bride Wars’ where Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson‘s characters end a lifelong friendship just because their weddings had been booked on the same day at the Plaza Hotel. ‘Bridezillas’ has been a smashing hit with the audiences due to the absolutely crazy antics of the brides that we get to see, which frankly, are somewhat relatable as well.
Bridezillas Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of ‘Bridezillas’ keeps changing each season since the show’s format focuses on the various meltdowns and tantrums thrown by the brides to be. Therefore, the narrators Mindy Burbano, Laura Halperin, and Jamie Zimmer are present in all the seasons, but in each season we see new brides.
Hopefully, in the upcoming season, we will witness more shenanigans, greater fits, and more drama from the brides who cannot stand anything going wrong on their wedding day, and literally throw a fit at the smallest of things.
