Preview: FOUR WEDDINGS in Charleston, Bride Crissy Exclusive Interview
The brides attend each other’s wedding and score them in four categories. After it’s all added up, whoever comes out on top wins an all-expenses-paid, luxury honeymoon. A lot is at stake and these ladies went to great pains to make it special.
Nonetheless, there can only be one winner and as the scenes unfold, it is fun to give each wedding your own score and see if you are in sync with the brides. In fact, this season on FOUR WEDDINGS, fans can do that via Facebook using custom hashtags if they watch the show live.
As you can see from the video clip posted below, Lindsay’s wedding featured a special guest: Clemson University’s mascot Tiger. It is Amie’s reception that put the aircraft carrier in the title of the show. Kimberly’s October affair had a Halloween theme, complete with guests dressed in costume. Crissy threw a beach wedding at her favorite spot along the Charleston shore.
TVRuckus was able to speak with Crissy Brooks this week about her experience on FOUR WEDDINGS and what she loved or disliked about her fellow brides’ weddings and receptions.
TVRuckus: What was the reason you chose to make your big day part of the show?
Crissy: “I really love the show and it’s a chance to meet three people from my area that I would never, ever have the chance to meet. We still keep in touch.” (The weddings on the show occurred between October 9 and November 5, 2013)
TVRuckus: Was it difficult to get your groom Josh to participate?
Crissy: “It was at first, but he got excited. He was a bit nervous, but became very supportive. He’s a great guy.”
TVRuckus: What about your guests? Did you have anyone refuse to sign the waiver to allow them to be filmed and edited into the show?
Crissy: “Most of my close friends were waiting in line, waiting to sign it. They wanted to be on TV. I didn’t broadcast it to a lot of people prior to the wedding. They signed it on that day. I think there’s something about the cameras that makes people become more alive and just tend to have more fun. I’m so excited to see the show and see if that’s true of any of my friends that were on camera.”
TVRuckus: After it was over, how did it feel to you and your guests that they participated in a reality TV show?
Crissy “Everyone loved it. To be honest, as to me, I didn’t even know the cameras were there for the most part. They weren’t intrusive or anything like that. It made my wedding even more memorable.”
TVRuckus: Any aspirations to do more TV?
Crissy: “I thought about it early on in my college career but I switched to nursing. I’m a registered nurse. During the pre-wedding activity and all the filming, I was back in school to get my bachelor’s degree and I did actually graduate.”
TVRuckus: I’d like you to name the best and worst things about each of the other brides’ weddings.
Crissy: “At Lindsay’s wedding the best was her food, particularly the dessert cart, absolutely fabulous. The worst was the Clemson Tiger. (Crissy’s loyalties are with the rival school, Univ. of South Carolina). The best thing at Amie’s wedding was that it wasn’t too hot and the worst thing was the cash bar. Kimberly’s wedding…there were so many things. Cocky showed up (the Univ. of SC mascot) and the bourbon cupcakes were the best. The worst at Kimberly’s wedding was that it was freezing cold and it was an outdoor ceremony.”
TVRuckus: Have you heard any of the critiques of the ladies about elements of your wedding day?
Crissy “No, when we talk, we don’t talk about that kind of stuff. I think we’re all scared, like ‘I hope we’re still friends after the show.’ “
TVRuckus: What if I told you that one of the things mentioned when I saw the screener sent to me by TLC was that the mini-beachballs you handed out were thrown at you and Josh on the dance floor? It got kind of rough out there, him having to shield your face.
Crissy: “That was one of the things we thought that in theory was such a great idea. In practice not such a great idea, because we got pinged in the face.”
TVRuckus: What about the ceremony on the beach and the lack of a walkway to allow people to wear their shoes as they made their way to the seating area near the altar?
Crissy: “Josh and I are big beach people. We love the sand between our toes and so we prepared everyone for there not being a walkway. We did provide a basket if people wanted to take their shoes off.”
TVRuckus: Your dress was spectacular. Shall I ask you the inevitable red carpet question at award shows? Who are you wearing?
Crissy: I bought my dress in Greenville and it’s a Jim Hjelm design.
TVRuckus: It looks like you got everything you wanted.
Crissy: I did, plus some!
TVRuckus: What would you do over if you had the chance?
Crissy: You know, there isn’t one thing I would do over. Everyone we wanted there was there. We love the beach, the weather was perfect, it was just a moment that if I could, I would put in a box and give it to people, because everyone should feel like that once in their lives.read more: bridesmaid dresses
