In real-life, a wedding ceremony is a joyous, emotional occasion, filled with family, friends, loved ones and meaningful vow exchanges, but on television, some shows depict a completely different event. From lavish and over-the-top nuptials to newlyweds rating each others ceremonies in competition for the dream honeymoon, the traditional wedding ceremony has been turned into network television’s very own circus act.

If you ever want to save the sanctity of getting married and having a wedding in your own life, try not to turn to these TV shows! Here are a few of the tackiest, overly dramatic and embarrassing wedding shows on TV.

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding

Gypsies are not as common in our typical American society, but with the introduction of TLC’s “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding,” we get a glimpse of their extravagant wedding ceremonies. This show is bombarded with huge dresses, a lot of glitz, and awkward family drama and is the furthest idea from a ‘traditional’ wedding.

    I think the way you kept on using the term “Traditional Wedding” Is a bit off base! Most of these shows are just mindless entertainment not wedding guides..I always consider reality TV like going to the carnival.. It’s fun to visit but, you don’t want the lead game master as a roomate.
