New BBC1 wedding show: The Big Day

By admin on June 29th, 2007 4 comments

thebigday.jpgI have a huge (and only faintly embarrassing) crush on TV presenter Nick Knowles, so I’d be watching his new BBC show, The Big Day, even if it wasn’t about weddings.

Starting next week (5th July) this new series takes a couple who are desperate to get married but have neither the time or the money and pulls together friends and family to create the perfect day in just one week. The transport, flowers, location for reception, cake and food, even the dress are all a surprise on the day. Should be very entertaining (and only faintly embarrassing).

    Please can someone help me. I was watching the Cheshire episode of The Big Day on BBC1 last night and they were taking the mother-in-laws around trying to find a reception venue. They took them to a very old cellar-looking building, which they voted against because they couldn’t play music or have a band there. I would LOVE to know where that venue was as my sister is getting married next year and it would be the perfect place.

    I wonder if you could help. How do you apply to be on the show The Big Day. My partner and I desperately want to get married. After years in disasterous and abusive relationships, I have finally found my knight in shining armour. We are frantically saving, but as we are living on a shoe string and paying off debts, things are tight. I’d marry him in a bin bag if I had too.. We have lots of contacts that can help. We just need a little help. Please can you make our day..
