That milestone, when mild-mannered women transform into unnaturally obsessive and intolerably demanding brides-to-be, during the high-tension ritual of wedding planning, is a milestone worth honoring.
And We tv is doing just that, with the unveiling of it’s Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria, opening in New York’s Time Square to mark the reboot of reality show Bridezillas, premiering March 2 at 10 p.m.
“WE tv viewers have been calling for us to bring back the series since we wrapped it up in 2013,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv, in a statement. “And we’re answering their call – not only with new fresh and frantic episodes of their beloved show, but a full scale museum in the crossroads of the world – Times Square.”
The 3,000-square-foot attraction will be open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., from February 23 to March 4, and features kitschy displays and interactive experiences celebrating centuries of outrageous bridal behavior.
Touted as free-of-charge and Instagram-worthy, here’s a rundown of the exhibits on display:
Bridezillas Throughout History
Gawk and awe at a gallery dedicated to the baddest brides in history, revealing how the oversized expectations and behaviors of famous brides like Adam’s Eve, Nefertiti and Cleopatra set the template for generations of Bridezillas to come.
‘Zilla Did What?
Come face-to-face with articles and artifacts chronicling bad bridal behaviors that seem too outrageous to be true, but are—from the hideous hairstyles, manicures and gowns imposed upon innocent bridesmaids, to the eyesore invitations and over-the-top wedding cakes, to news articles and social media chronicling when weddings end in brawls, lawsuits and other disasters.
Channel your Inner Bridezilla
Lose yourself in a host of immersive, interactive attractions designed to allow frantic brides and tourists alike to scream, punch and vogue like a true Bridezilla, including the Rage-O-Meter Punching Bag; a Scream Booth and Cray-Cray Cranial Head Massagers, ones guaranteed to chill out the most manic Bridezilla or NYC tourist.
Do it for the ‘Gram
Remember and share your experiences by taking your own tacky bridal portrait at the Bridezillas Altar of Shame, while luxuriating in a bathtub of ‘diamonds’, being squashed under the massive sequined stiletto of a giant Bridezilla, and more.
