Get your Wedding paid for! Having a TV wedding

I get lots of letters from Brides and Grooms asking how they can get their wedding for free. Many of you may have watched my TV series on Wedding TV - Three Grand Weddings.

In this show, three lucky couples got expert advice from some of the UK's top wedding planners and their £3,000 weddings paid for. Obviously, as with any reality TV show, there was a catch, on Three Grand Weddings, the Bride and Groom didn't know any details of their big day until the wedding day itself! All of the wedding planning was left to their friends annd family.

The Bride and Grooms may have been cut out of the wedding planning, and their big days may have only cost a budget £3,000, but nevetheless, they all had an amazing time - and I don't believe regretted a thing. The top it all off, the couples all won a honeymoon too.

What sort of Bride suits a TV wedding?

If you're willing to relinquish control of the wedding planning, and don't have set ideas of how your wedding day should look, applying to be on a TV Wedding show could be a great option to pursue.

You just have to remember, you often will have no say in the wedding planning whatsoever. You won't even get to see the wedding dress until the day itself.

Wedding planning can be one of the most magical experiences you can share with your future hubby, you need to make sure you're willing to forgo this for the sake of saving money and hassle.

On the other hand, if spending hours pouring over table decorations really isn't your cup of tea, and you couldn't care less whether you have chair covers or stools for the wedding guests, appearing on a wedding planning show could really be a great option for you.

How to get on a Wedding TV Show - and often get your wedding paid for!

A second series of Three Grand Weddings is planned for next year - I won't be the presenter sadly, as I'm living abroad. If you're interested in participating in this, or any of Wedding TV's other TV programmes, why not check out their "Be on Wedding TV" page and apply to be on of their shows?

Alternatively, for shows like BBC3's "Don't tell the Bride" keep an eye out on The Chief Bridesmaid blog and Be on Screen.
