Don’t Tell The Bride is never a walk in the park, as a groom takes on the challenge to plan the whole wedding while keeping it secret from the bride or groom.
When 29-year-old Brendán plans a Harry Potter themed wedding, his fiancé Victor is horrified, to say the least.
The 34-year-old tries on his Gryffindor robes hand-picked by Brendán and declares he is not going to his own wedding!
Victor can’t believe the theme is real, especially considering he’s not even a fan of the books or movies.
“You must be joking, what is this,” he says, “What the f**k? I haven’t even seen Harry Potter! I can’t wear this. Is this a joke?”.
As his friends attempt to comfort him, Victor, who had been hoping for a classy wedding wearing a sharp tuxedo, takes to the couch and sheds a tear.
“I can’t go to the wedding wearing this because I don’t want my wedding to be a circus. I am extremely disappointed in Brendán and I don’t know, literally, what he is thinking. He is just thinking about him, he is not thinking about us. I am not going,” he says.
Victor is in for a shock as Brendán has themed their entire wedding around Harry Potter, from turning the Clonakilty Model Railway Village into Platform 9¾ to having their own Hedwig the Owl deliver the rings and a reception inspired by the Great Hall in Hogwarts.
Can Brendán, who proposed after three months, cast a spell on Victor and get him to the wedding? Viewers will have to tune in to tonight’s Don’t Tell the Bride on RTÉ2 to find out.
