Reality Bites Reality Bites

RTÉ Two, Monday 18 March 2013, 9.30pm

Jennifer Maguire is now engaged! Will her sassy and irreverent personality, not traditionally associated with a blushing bride-to-be, change now that she's engaged to her long term boyfriend, British actor Lau Zamparelli? See what happens when she ventures into the bride zone!

In truth Jennifer hasn't really thought that much about her wedding. The whole circus of dresses, drama, tears and tantrums synonymous with wannabe brides is really quite alien to her! But how will she feel now that she's getting closer to preparations for her own walk down the aisle later next year?

Regardless of the economic climate, weddings are as popular as ever, with over 25,000 happening every year in Ireland. From getting the ring, to getting to the altar, Jennifer witnesses what it's like for women who take this age old rite of passage.

Through her initiation into this wondrous world, Jennifer meets wedding industry experts who guide her down the fairytale path to supposed wedding glory. Will she be bitten by the Bridezilla bug and get carried away in a tide of tulle, place settings and monogrammed invites, or continue as an incredulous bystander with designs on an elopement!
