'Say I Do': Release date, plot, hosts, trailer and all you need to know about Netflix's touching reality show
The show will feature 8 couples who will be able to finally get a wedding of their dreams and helping them in the process are three experts
Everyone loves shows that deal with human emotions. For example, 'Queer Eye' on Netflix where the Fab Five give "heroes" a physical and emotional makeover. Another example is the British show 'Don't Tell the Bride' where grooms put in all the work towards making arrangements for the wedding, keeping it a secret from their brides. The enormous success of shows like these is very telling of the fact that people indeed do relate to the elements that these shows are armed with. There's another show on the block that's about to release soon and it won't be wrong to say that it is an amalgamation of the above-mentioned shows. Titled 'Say I Do: Surprise Weddings', the show features couples who always intended to enter wedlock but haven't managed to do so for a number of reasons. Continue reading to know more.
'Say I Do: Surprise Weddings' releases on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
The show features eight couples who've been together for what feels like forever. The intent to get married was always there but somehow a variety of reasons have made it impossible for them to get married. Just like the Fab Five, this show enlists the help of three experts who with their joint expertise in fashion, interior design and food help breathe life into dream weddings. What's interesting about the show is that each wedding is a surprise either to the bride or the groom. Whoever is planning the surprise only has a week to do so and this also includes a dreamy proposal. This might really touch the hearts of a lot of couples who've had their wedding plans canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. So we say get those tissues ready and mark your calendars. You don't want to miss this one.
