Los Angeles, CA — OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today it has picked up eight episodes of the new wedding series Don't Tell the Bride based on the hit U.K. show of the same name.
The series gives eight cash-strapped couples a budget to create the wedding of their dreams. But here's the catch—the bride and groom can't see each other for the month leading up to the nuptials, and the groom has to plan the whole wedding in secret with the help of his best man and the bride knows nothing of the events!
The bride will see the invitations right when they come in the mail; she'll try on the dress hours before she wears it down the aisle; and she'll view the reception venue and meal when she arrives with the rest of her guests.
Does this sound like a nightmare? Or is this a chance for the groom to impress his bride? When it comes to a wedding, there's always drama, and Don't Tell the Bride promises tantrums—and a few unexpected tears of joy before "the big day" is done.
Don't Tell the Bride is produced by Shed Media U.S. and is based on a series format from Renegade Pictures and Digital Rights Group.
