DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, April 2009) Some women have been thinking about their wedding day since they were little girls. The room, the flowers, the cake, and of course the dress. But what about their husband-to-be? Don't Tell the Bride gives $20,000 to twelve cash-strapped couples to create the wedding of their dreams. But here's the catchthe couple are spilt up for the month leading up to the nuptials, and the groom has to pull off the whole thing in secret. The bride will see the invitations when they come in the mail, the dress hours before she wears it up the aisle and the reception venue and meal when she arrives with the rest of her guests.
