TLC JUMPS BACK INTO THE COMPETITIVE SPIRIT WITH A NEW SEASON OF "FOUR WEDDINGS"
New season premieres August 15 at 9/8c
For the modern bride, wedding season is a spectator sport, and the competition heats up when TLC premieres its fifth season of FOUR WEDDINGS. Kicking off the series' 100th episode on Friday, August 15 at 9/8c, FOUR WEDDINGS returns with brand new batch of brides ready to defend - and judge - every wedding decision from grand entrances to menu options. While all brides aim for the most memorable event, this season features everything from a wedding at a flying trapeze school to a horror movie-themed wedding. The 16 episode run will air back-to-back on Friday nights, with competitive brides from coast to coast.
In each episode of FOUR WEDDINGS, four unique brides with their own personal styles and traditions agree to attend and judge each other's weddings on the basis of food, dress, venue and overall experience. The winning bride is awarded a luxury honeymoon package that no newlyweds would pass up.
This year, for the first time ever, fans can join in on all the wedding fun through live Facebook polling during each episode. Viewers can vote for their favorite wedding using custom hashtags; voting is live throughout the entire episode, and real-time results will be displayed on-air.
TLC is also bringing the competition from the screen to the living room, as the network launches a Watch 'N Win sweepstakes. Throughout the upcoming season of FOUR WEDDINGS, TLC will offer viewers the chance to win an exclusive, all-expense paid trip for two to New York City to be VIP guests at Bridal Fashion Week this October, and the chance to spend time with TLC's well-known wedding talent. More information can be found next week at TLC.com/FourWeddings.
