(39 x 1/2-hour series)
The path to the altar is filled with temptation as brides-to-be get serious about cutting the flab.
Here comes the bride, all dressed and…wide? After months of stressful planning and bank-breaking expenses, the real test of a bride’s nerves is the stroll down the aisle in her wedding dress. She knows that all eyes are trained on her, examining every inch of her body in that revealing, ultra-fem gown. No woman wants to be a bulging bride!
Bulging Brides is a fast-paced, action-packed television series that exposes a bride’s desperate struggle to drop unwanted inches so that she can look picture perfect on her wedding day. The series is co-hosted by every bride’s “Dream Team”: personal trainer Tommy Europe and nutrition specialist Nadeen Boman.
Each half-hour episode features the story of one bride-to-be in the high-anxiety period less than two months before the Big Day. The bride has her wedding dress, but it doesn’t fit. Racked by tension from the bridal arrangements and petrified by the thought of looking chunky on her big day, the bride-to-be has turned to the Dream Team as a last resort to lose her flab and look breathtaking in her gown.
The stress from the intense fitness program and strict nutrition regime is heightened by wedding related events in the bride’s life, from menu tastings to the bridal showers, which are interwoven throughout the episode. Tempted by rich food and high calorie cocktails at every turn, the bride’s willpower is taxed to the max.
Will she follow the Dream Team’s disciplined path or will she succumb to temptation? In the end, the measuring tape will tell the tale, as the bride steps into her gown for the highly anticipated final reveal.
Bulging Brides takes the appeal of every weight-loss program and ups the ante with the high anxiety stakes of an imminent wedding; delivering a half-hour of riveting tragic-comic television.
