There’s the bride at the altar. Then there’s altering the bride.

Suddenly Bridezillas seem like old-fashioned charming cherubs. Almost.

Some stories speak for themselves with no help from me. Like this from the NY Daily News:

“Some women have china patterns or placemats on their ‘wish lists.’ Others have liposuction and rhinoplasty.

“The upcoming E! series ‘Bridalplasty’ (debuts Nov. 27) caters to the second category. The reality show, a mix of extreme plastic surgery with wedding day drama, has a competition element, according the Hollywood Reporter.

“Each week, a woman will go for broke in a wedding-related competition. The winner will receive the plastic surgery that they long for to make their day complete.

Excerpted from ABC News:

“Competing in wedding-themed challenges such as writing vows and planning honeymoons, ‘each week one lucky bride will … get one piece of her dream body — going under the knife for one of the surgeries off her ‘wish list,” performed by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow, the network writes.

” ‘Bridalplasty’ will be the first American reality show to have participants compete for plastic surgery. There have been shows about people having plastic surgery, but in “Bridalplasty,” it’s the prize — pushing the limits of medical ethics.

“What’s at stake?

“According to the show’s description, contestants who are voted off risk ‘walking away with nothing and losing [their] chance to be the perfect bride.’

“But what would be a plastic surgery show without the famous reveal?

“The groom will not see his bandaged bride until the big day.

” ‘Viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery,’ says E!, according to the Reporter.

Setting aside all possible consequences and commentary, I’ll say just ahhh, remember back when the “new” of something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue meant simply a pair of earrings?
