The success of WE tv's signature series Bridezillas helped define the television bridal genre when it premiered in 2003 and marked an important new mandate for the network. Next, WEgobridal.com was launched in June 2007, an online destination point for weddings and all things bridal. The popularity of the site and the network's wedding shows led WE tv to brand a special evening devoted to just this � WE Go Bridal Sundays. And now, "WE Go Bridal Week" returns to the air with a whole week dedicated to your favorite wedding specials (Best of Bridezillas, Wedding Gown Secrets Revealed, Wedding Cake Masters, The Wedding Planners, Married By The In-Laws, etc.), popular series (Bridezillas, Platinum Weddings, Rich Bride, Poor Bride, My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding, Weird Weddings, etc.) and a special presentation of the film Father of the Bride.

What does it take to create a romantic beach wedding? Beach Weddings takes you through the firsthand experience of four different couples with very diverse beach weddings. Each couple has a unique ocean-lined celebration along the sunny sands of California: an intimate ceremony in Muir Beach, swanky shindig in Malibu, platinum extravaganza in Coronado and an ethnic Hindu heritage celebration on Shelter Island. From the dress to ceremony and reception details, these wedding stories are not only romantic and heartfelt, but also a must-see for anyone planning to wed by the ocean.

It's the most important dress a woman will ever buy and this special features 16 famous dresses that are just as memorable as the celebrities that wore them. A collection of experts comment on the details that makes them so unforgettable: celebrity stylist Philip Bloch, Brides Magazine editor-in-chief Millie Bratten, InStyle correspondent Katrina Szish, fashion designers Beate and Jennifer Packham, Wedding Salon founder Tatiana Byron, and Rennee Strauss of Rennee Strauss for the Bride. Why was Tori Spelling's eyelet gown perfect for her beach wedding to Dean McDermott or Grace Kelly's beaded threads for her marriage to Monaco's Prince Rainier? Each dress makes a statement, whether it's Gwen Stefani's pink-trimmed design, Carmen Electra's shockingly traditional gown, Carolyn's Bissett's simple elegance or Princess Diana's extraordinary train.

BULGING BRIDES � All-New Series Premiere
Premieres Sunday, February 17 at 10 & 10:30pm I 9 & 9:30c with Two Back-to-Back Episodes
Continues Sundays at 10pm I 9c with One All-New Episode Each Week
Every bride wants her wedding day to be picture perfect and for many, that means making sure the wedding dress fits just right. In Bulging Brides, each half-hour episode follows different bride-to-be's as they try to shed unwanted pounds and inches in order to fit into their gowns. Yet stress, hectic schedules and temptations from menu tastings and bridal showers can make it difficult, so co-hosts and "Dream Team" experts are enlisted to help. Personal trainer Tommy Europe and nutrition specialist Nadeen Boman put the ladies through a strict and intense 6-week regimen. It's high-stakes for these brides � will they be able to reach their weight-loss goals or need to have their gowns re-fitted?
