Platinum Weddings

Jewel encrusted wedding bouquet? $500

Professional sitar player? $2,000

45 cascading floral arrangements? $37,000

An opportunity for our readers to get ideas for their weddings without breaking their budget? Priceless

That pretty much sums up the perks of WE tv’s popular reality show Platinum Weddings, airing new episodes starting tonight.

Can we say extravagant? Of course, but these grand affairs are also super entertaining. I was checking out a repeat from last year on a couple that threw a lavish Indian ceremony and reception. There were some pretty great ideas in there, even if the sum of the parts equaled the down payment on a loft in New York. But price tag aside, there is plenty reason to watch, from the beautiful table settings, to the gorgeous locales, to the stunning dresses. Check it out and get inspired!

New episodes at 9 p.m. PST/8 p.m. CST starting January 3 on WE tv. Check your cable provider for local channel information. You can also visit the Website for info on the couples and their vendors.
