'Bethenny Getting Married' Recap: The Wedding!


Bethenny FrankelOn Bethenny Getting Married this week,  Bethenny Frankel laughed, cried, peed in an ice bucket, and ... got married. And it was beautiful and moving, and I can't recall many times I've been so happy for someone I don't know.

There were the usual bridal tensions and last-minute freak-outs, though some things were uniquely Bethenny -- namely peeing in an ice bucket when a proper toilet wasn't an option minutes before the ceremony. I'd seen it coming in the previews, but watching it all play out was quite impressive.

Her wedding planner, Shawn Rabideau, who actually helped hold the bucket under her dress while she went, deserves a big tip. A huge tip! (And perhaps his own series on Bravo?)

"I was inches away from her cooch cooch," he said.

But everything else was gorgeous and elegant, and her emotion and appreciation for everything that was happening were contagious. Because she really never thought she'd find true love, never thought she deserved it.

And here she is getting married and having a baby with a guy, Jason Hoppy, who from all accounts appears to be amazing and comes from an incredible family when hers was exactly the opposite.

While for all her success, it's hard to think of Bethenny as an underdog -- on a lot of accounts she is ... or was.

When I watched the first episode of Bethenny Getting Married, I really worried for the future of their marriage, now I'm rooting for it!

I just wonder if they're going to change the title of the show? I hope so because the whole past tense thing is gonna bug me if not.

Did you watch Bethenny Getting Married this week? Did you cry?

My favorite part of the wedding was Bethenny's vow to Jason "The sum of us are greater together than apart." Bethenny was a beautiful bride and the wedding was fabulous. Shawn the wedding planner did an awsome job.

That was a beautiful wedding! They seem like they are truly in love. Could have done without the bucket scene way too much reality but I love the show. Bethenny is really funny and I loved the wedding planner hilarious talking about the dog!

 I think the day of her wedding was priceless. What a good job everyone did. I do say that Ramona was a bit of Papoli. Grow up Ramona, kiss & make up, Group Hug and then off to a luncheon for Ramona & her wine. Lelani

 I starting watching Housewife of New York and loved it.  When I saw Bethenny was getting her own show, I was so looking forward to it.  I think she is the best one of all.  The wedding was so beautiful and not to many women could pull off looking that beautiful and being pregnant in a wedding dress.  I am so happy for her.  All the best.

Bethenny absolutey shone with love and Jason reflected it! I was honestly surprised and so very happy for her to get the family she has always needed and wanted all in one fell swoop. Jason's parents looked ecstatic and seemed so very loving, and pray that she will let them fully love her as she deserves. She has had so much negativity in her life thus far and this is God or whatever deity you believe just blessing her abundantly. I cannot wait to see a Christmas special from this new family!

Blessings Jason and Bethenny!
