I've watched all of them on You Tube, and spent most of the time with my mouth open......

I was talking about it to a patients parent today (a brit) who happens to own a bridal shop, and she said that I should come sit in her shop some day and listen to some of the crazy requests she gets .... and that was after I'd told her about the numpty who had flashing lights in her skirt

That should knock on the head once and for all the American view of the British being classy and cultured

Hmmm never thought about it before, I can just hear it now 'is that how all weddings are in England'. I lost count of how many times I was asked what a stone was (lots of people watching 'you are what you eat').

I watched all when I was in England. I thought it was really interesting - their attitude towards sex completely contrasted with the way they dress themselves.

I have to say the dresses were incredible/unbelievable and waaaaay over the top. I couldn't believe the size of some of their dresses.
I wondered where they got all the money from. Those weddings must have cost an absolute fortune

I kind of felt sorry for the girls though. The wedding is the 'biggest' day in their lives. After that they are totally bound to their husbands and can only look forward to cleaning the home and obeying his every command. Eeeek.
