Netflix's 'Say I Do' featuring surprise weddings between diverse couples leaves fans crying happy tears
The series highlights the love story of eight couples and chronicles a week in their life at the end of which they end up at the altar
Netflix just dropped all eight episodes from its upcoming series 'Say I Do'. The series highlights the love story of eight couples and chronicles a week in their life, at the end of which they end up at the altar. Each episode features a different couple where a partner seeks the help of the three fabulously talented "gay angels" — Jeremiah Brent, Thai Nguyen and Gabriele Bertaccini — to throw a surprise wedding — one that their partner truly deserves.
The show is easily one of the most diverse among dating/marriage reality shows. Their stories are equally endearing and are already touching the hearts of people who've lapped up the show in a matter of 24 hours since it dropped. One of the comments read, "PSA: do NOT watch 'Say I Do' on Netflix if you don't want to spend your afternoon between Zoom calls bawling."
The show is extremely diverse in terms of casting — same-sex couples, white couples, Black couples — you name it and the show has them all. One of these couples includes Jason and Jonathan whose wedding plans were thrown off the rails due to the former's cancer diagnosis. He's healed now but their savings have been depleted in the course of his treatment, putting their marriage plans as well as adoption plans on the backburner.
As a gift to them, Brent who's in a same-sex marriage and a father of two adoptive kids arranged for a meeting between Jason, Jonathan and an adoption lawyer. This has struck a chord with viewers and one of them commented, "Thank you @netflix for showcasing same-sex marriages on 'Say I Do'. The love between these couples is so pure but you show the opportunities of adoption and family approval in such a sensitive manner. Loved the 3 guys who arranged the weddings."
The release of the show is perfectly timed. With many weddings being postponed due to the pandemic, this show serves comes as a respite with all its feel-good vibes that is bringing smiles as well as a lot of tears to the viewers' eyes. "I’m watching this say I do show on Netflix and I’m not gonna say I’m crying but... I won’t say I’m not. I hate it here". Another viewer wrote, "I’m watching this new show on Netflix “Say I do Suprise Weddings” and babyyyyyy the tears are just rolling". Another viewer wrote, "I thought I was going to watch a cute little wedding show but Say I Do Surprise Weddings on @netflix is already bringing out the ugly tears."
