Here Come The Wedding Bashers

Arrive on time for your special date with the stylish Wedding Bashers!
M-Net’s brand new, original local show launches on Sunday 17 September at 17:00 

The dress should be to die for, the food should be world class, the décor divine and the entertainment a blast, but what will happen when South Africans of all backgrounds, cultures and religions open up their special days to The Wedding Bashers?

From Sunday 17 September there’s a brand new, quirky wedding show on M-Net 101 at 17:00. The Wedding Bashers will turn a microscope onto 22 unique weddings over 12 episodes, through an all-star celebrity team of experts in various fields. Enter former Miss South Africa and business woman Cindy Nell, bubbly socialite and VUZU star Denise Zimba, celebrity chef and food expert Siba Mtongana and wedding planner extraordinaire Zavion Kotze.

Each week, these four Wedding Bashers will make their way to nuptial celebrations across the country where they will join in the festivities and then discreetly rate the Big Day.  As the show’s resident fashion expert, Cindy has been tasked to share her thoughts about the wedding gown, garments and accessories while Siba will dish out remarks on the culinary experience. Zavion will evaluate everything  that brings ‘fabulosity’ to the event, or not – from the overall décor to the theme, flower arrangements and visual impact. To impress Denise, there should be proof that the guests had an amazing time, with on-point entertainment of course.

While The Wedding Bashers may disagree about the finer details concerning the fashion and beauty, food, décor and entertainment, their final overall score for the wedding will be vital, because at the end of the series the newlyweds at the top of the list will win a wonderful wedding gift from the show: prizes to the value of over R500 000.

On top of the celebrity squad’s feedback, viewers can have their say too by rating the weddings on www.mnet.tv/weddingbashers. Be sure to watch the first episode to see how your opinion will count – and maybe win you some great weekly prizes too!

“The Wedding Bashers is unlike any wedding show you know,” says Lani Lombard, M-Net’s Head of Publicity. “It’s great fun seeing the Bashers in action and speaking their minds, but we will also will also get to experience a diverse range of weddings and will sometimes be challenged to rethink our perceptions of what a perfect wedding day should look like. The competition element also adds an exciting spin to this proudly South African format.”

The 22 weddings featured in the show vary in budget, opulence and theme and whether its set on a beach, in a vineyard, an industrial chic area or a five-star train, the Wedding Bashers’ comments and criticism will always be outweighed by an important golden thread: the love that inspired the occasion.

The Wedding Bashers is produced by [sic] Entertainment and will be broadcast on M-Net channel 101 every Sunday night at 17:00. Viewers can also visit www.mnet.tv/weddingbashers to watch exclusive interviews with the bashers and bridal couples, and follow all the breaking news and conversations around the show on Twitter @MNet / #WeddingBashers or on the official M-Net Facebook page.
