There are two shows on WE (Women's Entertainment Network) about women getting married: Bridezillas and Platinum Weddings. They are often aired one right after the other. The first one is all about the hysterical hilariousness when brides-to-be lose their shit onscreen dealing with caterers, florists, family, grooms. The contrast of the pretty sweet bridal shell and the screaming bitch underneath. The second show...lots of string background music, graphics showing pricing/costs, calmer brides and lots of wedding planners. Fuller focus on the parents behind it all and a lot of blah-blah cliches about happily ever after. The patter on Bridezillas...they're not sure what to wish for. It is really hard not to get the feeling that we're just talkin twixt the two about class. Class and/or income. Those with the ability to hire someone to be stressed out for them and those without. It's a little ruthless. Especially as they love the meltdowns on Bridezillas.

He/she who edits the video holds the key to the universe.
