    wedding trends 2Wedding Trends- Don't Tell The Bride
    Don't Tell The Bride is a BBC TV program Series in which the groom must choose every detail of his wedding, from venue to cake to wedding dress- we're all addicted to it in the EW office!

    Every week a hapless groom takes charge of the whole wedding planning and the nervous bride has no idea what he will be doing. There have been some great episodes and it is especially heart warming to see the groom really getting stuck in and involved in every single detail from flowers to the major, scary decision of picking the dress... although the toughest challenge always seems to be keeping the bridesmaids happy with their dresses!

    You can really see how much these guys love their brides- to- be and make every effort to keep their love and her family happy. You can also pick up some zany ideas for your wedding too! Our favourite episode so far has to be the guy who picked a Jane Austen theme because his fiance loves Pride & Prejudice... bless him!
