The Big Day: Is there a budget?
It doesn’t look as though The Big Day sets a precise budget for the couples who appear on the Netflix show.
Unlike TV shows such as Don’t Tell The Bride, The Big Day seems to simply follow the bride and groom-to-be on their journey, rather than setting out budgets or requirements for their weddings.
The couples who took part in season 2 clearly have their hearts set on specifics when it comes to their wedding days. Some wanted more personal, intimate weddings, while other couples wanted to ensure that their special day represented two cultures coming together.
Twitter reacts to The Big Day season 2
Many viewers of The Big Day season 2 took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the new episodes.
Some people seemed gobsmacked by the lavish ceremonies featured on the show, one person Tweeted: “#thebigday – Basically telling me i’m poor!“.
Another said: “#TheBigDay on Netflix amazing ! Shows how to burn money“.
In terms of the amount of money spent on the show’s weddings, one viewer Tweeted: “One dude legit tried to justify spending crores on the wedding because “memories”. Shortly after Mika showed up to perform. So…yeah…I think this family spent crores on this wedding. #TheBigDay#TheBigMess“.
A “crore” means 10 million rupees which converts to about £100,000 in GBP, so it’s safe to say a lot of money was spent on the weddings shown on the Netflix series!
