July 29, 2020
We know you need a break from wedding planning, so we thought we'd let you in on some of our fave reality wedding shows on Netflix that'll let you project all your worries and anxieties on something other than your partner. From modern-day matchmaking to people who decide to get married before they even see each other, these binge-worthy shows are the perfect way to escape during these stressful times.
Grab some popcorn and strap in - these love stories are definitely going to be a bumpy ride.
1. Indian Matchmaking
You've probably heard your friends talking about it, but just in case you haven't, we're here to let you know that Indian Matchmaking is the go-to marriage show for the summer. Following the renowned matchmaker, Sima Taparia, this reality whirlwind takes us through the process of finding the perfect matches for Sima's clients based on their preferences for looks, lifestyles and hopes for the future. It's also a hot topic amongst critiques: is the show reinforcing outdated ideals of Indian culture or is it simply shining a light on how modern matchmaking is handled? Whatever side you're on, Indian Matchmaking will definitely keep you captivated.
2. Married at First Sight
If your first thought was, "this sounds chaotic," then you've hit the nail right on the head! The title beautifully summarizes the show - 2 people decide to take a leap of faith by agreeing to marry a complete stranger (each other!). It's a crazy love experiment that we truly cannot stop watching. Fans of Love is Blind - this one's especially for you.
3. Say I Do
Looking for a romantic tear-jerker? Then you have to watch Say I Do (fun fact - it's from the creators of Queer Eye). This show follows eight couples as they try to create their dream weddings with the help of three industry experts. Say I Do perfectly wraps up awe-inspiring love stories, wedding day designs that are unforgettable (get your Pinterest board ready!) and wedding dresses that will have your jaw dropping into eight beautiful episodes. Let your partner know you'll need a box of tissues for this one.
4. Dating Around
One single person: five blind dates. Ok, we know Dating Around isn't about marriage, but it's still about relationships! Each episode we follow one single person's journey into the somewhat treacherous world of dating. If you're yearning for something more lighthearted and focused on the butterflies you get at the beginning of a relationship, you won't want to miss this series.
5. Love on the Spectrum
Also not a marriage show, but Love on the Spectrum is totally worth watching! A new Netflix reality show unlike anything we've seen before in the realm of love stories, this series showcases the lives of young adults on the autism spectrum looking for love. If you want a reality TV show that's not your typical Bachelor or Love is Blind type, Love on the Spectrum just might be your perfect fit.
