Don’t Tell The Bride returns for a new series

By admin on July 18th, 2008 34 comments

Donttell.JPGRemember the last series of Don’t Tell The Bride? The premise was would you let your husband-to-be and his mates plan your wedding? Six brave brides did just that in return for what they hoped to be a dream wedding. The grooms were given a budget and three weeks to plan everything from the guest list to the colour and theme, the bridesmaid dresses and even the bride’s own gown. As the couple are barred from seeing each other until the ceremony, did the grooms pull it off without a hitch?


If you want to see how one bride reacted to her groom’s choice of dress, click here.

The series will air soon on Thursdays, 9pm at BBC Three.

  • benjamin williams

    my name is ben and my fiance is laura we have been together for 5years and we have a daughter who is turning 3 in january. we have been saving for as long as i can remember to get married as our one wish is to become a proper family we love each other dearly. we both work but are on low income and would love our dream wedding to become reality. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP US…..

  • Julie

    HI, I’M A WHEELCHAIR-BOUND JOB-SEEKER, I HAD A TERRIBLE CHILDHOOD AND MY PARTNER DOESN’T WORK. ALSO, MY MOTHER IS REALLY ILL…SO CAN I HAVE A FREE WEDDING???
    OMG! You lot are scroungers! It’s like a competition to see who can tell the saddest sob story…I’m on a low income…my partner doesn’t work…I had a bad childhood…blah, blah, blah. Anything to get a free wedding! Here’s a novel idea: get off the internet, go find a real job and then you can pay for your OWN weddings!! How does that grab you???
    I’d like to add that I DO love Don’t Tell the Bride myself…just not the parasitic plebs who are desperate to appear on it.

  • charlene

    hi my name is charlene, i would much appreciate it if you would kindly sort out a dream wedding for my auntie n uncle, they have been together for 17 years have 2 beautiful girls and have had a really tough year, they have lost 2 close and loved members of the family plus their dog which they had for 16 years. They have been saving for years but had to use the money for a bedroom extension. it would be a lovely surprise for both of them if they got their dream wedding plus if we keep waiting for the church on the moon which is the excuse they keep using they will never get wed, plus my mum and i would like to take part in being 1 of her bridesmaids.
    thank you very much in advance, hoping to hear from you soon.

  • Mhairi

    My partner and I are not engaged, however we got together in 2007 and now have two little boys. Due to all our money being spent on the kids my partner keeps telling me he would love us to get married but we can’t afford it and don’t have the time (and have very different ideas about what we want anyway, he wants traditional wedding in university chapel and would loved to get married in climbing centre teehee). Anyway if I told him we were doing this…it would happen because what I say goes, so the not being engaged thing wouldn’t be an issue :) (oh yes, I am fed up of the excuses).

  • Paul

    Great show! My partner for 12+yrs watches it with our daughter each week (as a hint I think!) It’s so interesting to see peoples ideas and opinions on weddings/mariage and has opened my mind from the weeks i’ve seen. It has even got me thinking about proposing marriage myself, now what a show that would be.
