Reality Drama: Gay Wedding Derailed After Groom Plans Surprise Harry Potter Wedding

Twitter is having a field day after an episode of Don’t Tell The Bride.

Don’t Tell The Bride is a British reality show where couples are given money to fund their wedding ceremony. The catch is, only the groom is allowed to spend the money. The bride not only isn’t in charge of the wedding planning, but she (or he in the case below) doesn’t even get to know what the plans are.

As you can imagine, this show premise has the potential to open up a whole can of worms, and it did in the case below.

The latest episode of Don’t Tell the Bride featured gay couple Brendán from Clonakilty in Cork and Victor from Mexico.

The two had been together for a year by the time they decided to get married, but their relationship was tested when they decided to be on this reality show. Victor let Brendán be in charge of the wedding and that backfired on the both of them.

Brendán decided to have a Harry Potter themed wedding with a venue that looked like Platform 9 and ¾, a reception hall decorated like the Grand Hall at Hogwarts, an owl ring bearer, and matching Hogwarts robes for the two grooms.

Problem is, Victor’s never seen or read Harry Potter.

Hilarity, and tragedy, ensues.

And, of course, there were plenty of people laughing it up on Twitter at the low-point of this couple’s relationship.

That said, the couple did get married in the end, so its good that Victor could see past Brendan’s thoughtlessness excitement.
