-Has anybody got confetti?
..likes to take control of her wedding.
So what happens when she has no say on her big day?
Argh, they are awful!
We're not doing it.
Don't Tell The Bride is back.
This is ridiculous.
As ever, the grooms are in charge.
I want there to be a donkey at the wedding.
I'm going to look lovely on our big day.
But with £12,000 to spend
and just three weeks to throw the wedding of their dreams...
Tell my mum I love her! Ah!
..have the boys pushed themselves too far?
-Oh, my God!
With more shocking,
and more daredevil weddings than ever before...
Will there be a happy ever after?
This is not the thing you get wrong the day before your wedding.
Will true love save the day?
Mum, what is that? Mum, what is that?
Or is it a countdown to disaster.
Three, two, one!
Tonight, wannabe rock star turned zoo keeper Scott
plans a jungle themed wedding...
I'm feeling like I'm in a real rainforest.
..for the bride-to-be who tamed him, Verity.
You're a nightmare.
Will this showman act on his animal instincts?
Who'd have thought you'd be coming to my wedding?
Or give Verity the wedding she dreams of?
I'm really worried that he's going to make it all about him.
And will his eBay dress...
I just clicked on "Buy It Now".
..rock her world?
Or will heads roll?
Everything that should be special has been taken away from me.
This programme contains some strong language.
31-year-old Scott and 25-year-old Verity are getting married.
But unlike most weddings,
this one will be planned entirely by the groom.
Scott has just three weeks and a £12,000 budget,
whilst Verity has absolutely no say in her big day.
And just to make sure, he's moving out
and won't see her again until the wedding.
It's a bit exciting. The suit.
Some T-shirts, cat.
-Ha-ha, Don't take Misha!
-I'm taking the cat.
Oh, so you see? She wants to come.
-You don't want to go do you, Mish?
Not the dog as well.
How much you going to miss me?
I'm dreading it.
Left alone, Verity's worried Scott will return
to his old rock and roll ways.
Scott is the front man and lead singer of part-time rock band,
Envy Of The State.
Been in a band for 15 years.
They've been the best years of my life, from playing,
like, the smallest little venues when we were young with one person
to playing to thousands of people at Donnington Park.
It's the most epic time of my life and I love that so much.
I definitely live the rock and roll lifestyle,
the idealistic rock and roll lifestyle,
and I definitely used my position and abused it well.
The thought of you staying with the band -
that is the worst case for me... The worst case scenario.
It's going to be like you're on tour again.
-That is not what we are going to be like.
-Yes, it is!
We're going to be head in the game,
we'll be so sensible that you're going to be shocked.
That is a load of rubbish as well you know.
Scott's lifestyle is a huge contrast to Verity's,
who works for the emergency services.
I work as a paramedic.
I've worked in the ambulance service for just over three years now.
It's good fun. It's hard work, but I really, really enjoy it.
Before Scott met Verity, it was all about the female fans.
Love the groupies.
They were my favourite.
So maybe when you're getting married,
maybe being in a rock band isn't the best job to have.
# Oh, foxy lady. #
Scott was back stage with groupies when the first glimpse
of Verity left him feeling flushed.
Well, we first met in the girls' toilets of a local bar
where Scott was singing a gig.
He was like some massive celebrity that had been on tour
around America and everything.
-I can't remember meeting you that night, can I?
-I know. Boo.
But I did the next time cos I fell in love with you the next time we met.
Yeah, and you told me that you loved me on the first date.
Despite his awkward early professions of love,
it was Scott's romantic lyrics that really won Verity's heart.
I realised that I was in love when you wrote me a song
and played it topless, I might add,
on his guitar for me, and it was beautiful.
-I cried, didn't I? A lot.
-You did cry, yeah.
-Did you like it?
-I loved it. Thank you.
But Scott's not just a rocker. He's also a CROCKER-dile enthusiast.
# Born to be wild. #
Although he's not given up on dreams of superstardom,
Scott's turned his focus from a wild life to, um...
setting up Telford's first exotic zoo.
We've got crocodiles, we've got armadillos, we've got bats,
we've got skunks, we've got porcupines,
we've got monkeys, we've got wallabies...
We like to tick all the boxes, don't we?
But we just need a tiger.
-Ooh, we do need a tiger.
-Tiger would be good.
And when wonder woman Verity isn't saving lives at work,
she's leaping to the aid of Scott and his animals.
I work 12-hour shifts as a paramedic.
It's pretty full-on, and then when I come home
I generally go straight from work to the zoo before actually going home.
Hello, Exotic Zoo.
I help do all the admin things.
I help to do all, like, the jobs that Scott doesn't like.
Like cleaning out the bat poo.
You like cleaning out the bat poo, though.
Essentially, without me,
I'm pretty sure the whole thing would just fall apart.
And that's not the only backstage role
Verity plays in their relationship.
Scott definitely takes centre stage in the relationship,
and he loves it.
Our lives are basically like the Scott show,
so what with him thinking he's sort of the front man,
the main man, he's like the face of the Scott show,
and I'm sort of the producer, like,
I run everything behind the scenes of the Scott show.
Scott thinks a lot of himself.
After two years together, Scott finally popped the question.
I think it's important to get married just to...
You can fully confirm your love for each other
and show in front of all your family and friends.
Just to say in front of everyone, like, we are together forever,
and no matter what happens we'll always be there for each other.
And stability is extremely important to Verity.
My upbringing was different, I think.
My mum, Kim, and my dad separated when I was quite young.
I don't remember too much about it but what I do remember
is sort of having to be shuffled from one family to the other.
Emotionally, it did get a bit tough.
I'd definitely say me and Verity come from different backgrounds.
My mum and dad have always been together.
She'd like to have that foreverness
and I think that this is definitely the one true thing
that's going to make that a reality.
When she marries me she's going to get a family.
-I love living with you.
-It's a nightmare.
No, it's not! It's so much fun.
Nightmare or not, the couple have bought a house together in Telford,
and they couldn't be happier.
-Have your breakfast.
-I love everything about Verity.
I want to spend the rest of my life with her.
We complement each other pretty well, I think.
We bring out the best in each other.
She's got just, like, every perfect thing
that just makes a perfect person, and I've bagged her!
# There's a billion girls but there's only one. #
But Verity is concerned that Scott will go wild
with the wedding planning.
I'm scared about Scott doing something
that's too crazy even for him.
I would like quite a traditional wedding that when you look at it,
you say, "Ooh, look, that's a wedding."
Normal is not in my dictionary.
I just wouldn't want anything that's all about like a jungle theme,
because obviously we have the zoo, or like all about the animals.
I spend my life surrounded by some amazing animals,
so I would like to take our wedding
and throw it in to the middle of rainforest.
And that's exactly what I'm going to do.
On our wedding day, for once,
I would just like people to look at me first
and see that it's not just about Scott and the Scott show,
it's about the Verity and Scott show.
And I'm also worried that you do some god-awful wedding that I hate.
It's time for our lovebirds to say goodbye.
But first, some touching words from the blushing bride.
-Just don't BEEP up.
I really mean that.
I love you so much.
Don't be sad.
I will be back in our nice house before you know it.
Making it messy before I know it.
I love you.
I love you. I'm sorry I've got to go.
I feel rubbish.
Like, we've never really been apart, so...
having to be apart
and like not even being able to speak or do anything is crap.
That was pretty tough. I hate seeing Verity when she's upset.
And she was very, really upset.
All that apart, it is very, very exciting, really.
I'm going to be moving in with my best friends
and my brother for three weeks to plan the most epic wedding ever.
Very exciting. I can't wait.
Yeah, enough soppy rubbish. Let's get the band back together.
Hey, you all right? Man pad time.
And there's one more person to join the party.
My best man is also my brother, which means double trouble.
I'm David, 27 years old, brother to the groom and the best man.
In a way, we're kind of polar opposites.
He's the clever one that's a solicitor,
I'm the rock and roll one in a band.
Come on, come on. Let's go.
When you put us together, we're definitely
a bad influence on each other.
So in no time at all, Scott and the boys have hit the town,
while Verity consoles herself with the dog.
I'm just going to hate every minute of it,
but I guess I'll just have to look forward to the fact
that the next time I see him we're going to be getting married,
which is pretty cool.

# I should have bought you flowers... #
It's all going to be really hard.
It'll be harder for Scott.
Planning a wedding and getting smashed. He looks gutted.
It's the morning after the night before
and the first day of wedding planning,
but despite the huge task ahead,
our nature-loving groom is a bear with a sore head.
Oh, man, I feel rough.
What time did we even get in last night?
I can't remember. I don't know what went on.
Just going to have to make a couple of calls,
-see if we can book in the venue.
-Where you got in mind?
The Eden Project Cornwall. You know me.
It's all about the animals and the jungle.
Look at this. It is a rainforest in England.
It might be quite pricey, though.
Well, if we can save some money on that wedding dress on eBay
we'll be all right. Plough it in.
Yeah, but Scott, you can't buy a wedding dress on eBay.
I'm telling you, it is the way forward.
Verity will blow her top if she knows you're...
I'm not spending £1,000 on a dress.
As long as Verity doesn't know it's from eBay.
It doesn't fit, splits at the seams when she puts it on.
So she won't be watching this then, Scott?
Ah, no, it's going to be fine.
A dress is a dress, man, you know what I mean?
Let's call Eden and let's see if we can book an appointment
-to see them tomorrow. OK?
-Yeah, do it.
'Hello, and welcome to the Eden Project.
'I'm sorry but our phone lines are now closed.'
This is why I should have got up earlier and phoned earlier.
We shouldn't have gone out last night.
And that's a whole day wasted. Good start, boys.
By contrast, Verity's wasting no time
getting into the wedding spirit.
My dream wedding venue is Polhawn Fort
and it's got its own private beach.
The venue's just very romantic, quite sort of whimsical,
and not fairy tale as such,
but just like really, really soft and delicate and fun,
and just, it's just beautiful,
like, and you don't need to do too much to it to make it look stunning.
She's heading to her dream venue on the Cornish coast
with stepmum Christine and best friend and bridesmaid, Ally.
Oh, my goodness. Look at all of the lights.
Oh, it's so lovely.
Polhawn Fort is steeped in history with its own private beach
offering an intimate and exclusive spot
for romantic weddings by the sea.
No way, there's a rainbow.
I love it. Do you love it?
It's absolutely stunning.
I just really wish, like, Scott was here now.
-I think he'd absolutely love it.
-What's not to love?
Anything that reminds me of our zoo and our jungle...
just because it's the one day where we don't have to think about it.
We can just get away from everything and just enjoy it.
And I think if there's jungle things everywhere
it will just be...be a nightmare.
After yesterday's damp squib, Scott's travelled 250 miles
to the Eden Project in Cornwall.
Eden's rainforest biome is the world's largest indoor jungle -
with a tropical temperature to match.
Wow, I'm home, I'm home. I'm moving in.
This is amazing.
This is exactly what I was imagining that it was going to be like.
I actually feel like I'm in a real rainforest.
This is obviously your perfect venue,
but what's Verity going to make of it all when she walks into this?
I think she's going to be blown away.
We ain't going to get more of a rainforest in England than this.
Imagine that as a backdrop to your wedding photos.
Dave, we're literally going to have this whole place to ourselves.
Yes. Come on!
I want to have my wedding here 100%.
Still in Cornwall but a whole world away,
Verity's fallen for lavish backdrops and beautiful sea views.
That would look beautiful any time of the year you came.
It's like amazing inside with all the lights.
It's amazing outside with the sound of the waves.
Do you think Scott would've picked somewhere like here, then?
I'm just really worried that he's going to make it all about him
and kind of forget about what it's supposed to be about.
This venue is perfect. It's so beautiful.
It's rustic but without being overly so.
It's just...yeah, it's just simple and beautiful and I just, I love it.
And stepmum Christine is just as concerned
that everything is perfect.
It's very important. She's my eldest child.
I might not have given birth to her but we brought her up
as best we could and I want this day to be special for her...
cos she's very special to all of us.
Look, you've made cry now.
Back in the tropical climes of South West England,
Scott and brother, David, can't believe their luck.
This is definitely it, isn't it?
I know this is very me but I want to add a few extra little twists
-to make it 100% me. So...
Well, I've seen a couple of nice pools
where we could probably slip a couple of the crocodiles in.
Crocodile ring bearers. Yes.
-Crocodile ring bearers?
So, crocodile ring bearers? Just what every girl dreams of.
With Scott's plan up and running,
it's time to meet Emma from the Eden Project.
We'd love to see where the ceremony will actually take place.
Yeah, no worries. Well, if I take you across.
Scott's wedding will take place deep inside the rainforest
in the spice area.
There'd be an aisle up the middle here.
And you've got this amazing backdrop for all your guests
to watch you say your vows.
It's all right, isn't it?
This is the gallery which you could hold your reception.
And at night the biomes are actually lit up.
Now it's down to the nitty-gritty.
Can Scott afford such an elaborate venue?
The venue hire of the rainforest
and the gallery is ordinarily £4,800.
-Yeah. My background is animal-related.
Trying to include some live animals in the wedding
-would be pretty awesome.
Maybe like a crocodile as a ring bearer.
What about the bride and groom
spending their first night in a rainforest?
Well, as long as she doesn't mind any creepy crawlies.
Hey, she lives with me.
£4,800 is a huge chunk of Scott's budget,
so he's keen to negotiate a bargain.
-Obviously we are on a budget.
So where could we possibly save a little bit of money?
-I can help you on the venue hire.
we could say £3,200.
£3,200? OK, excellent.
We've got ourselves a wedding.
-Perfect, cheers. Great. Lovely.
-Thank you very much.
-Cheers to you.
Right, let's go to the pub.
Deal done. He's talked the venue down to £3,200,
leaving plenty of money to turn it into something
Verity might want to get married in.
I can't believe in less than three weeks
I'm going to be having my marriage in there.
I'm going to get married in there.
-Oh, my God, it's amazing!
-This is all coming together.
Inspired by the visit to her dream venue,
Verity has brought stepmum Christine
and bridesmaids Elita, Claire, and Ally
to a bridal boutique to see her dream dress.
Oh, my goodness, it looks beautiful.
My perfect dress is timeless and floaty and elegant.
I want to feel like a princess but not like a big princess,
just like an understated princess.
The worst scenario for my dress would either be full lace,
really heavy, itchy,
can't move very well,
or like sequins and beads and things everywhere.
Do you think he'll go for a big...big dress?
No, I think he'll go for something quite, like, fitted.
Sort of show my curvy bits.
You know, he's got a fair...an all right amount of money to spend
and I'd like to think he's going to put a decent amount aside
for my wedding dress to make me feel special.
£1,000, that's all right for a wedding dress, isn't it?
I'm sure it'll be fine.
So, £1,000. Over to you, Scott.
To me, spending £1,000 on a wedding dress, that's crazy!
You can't spend £1,000 on a dress that you wear for one day.
It's a dress, man.
I've seen dresses that look awesome on eBay.
I think that I can save a lot of money.
So I'm still a bit concerned about what Verity's going to think
about having an eBay dress.
As long as she doesn't know where it's come from it's going to be fine.
So women's wedding dresses... 183,000.
-Now that's choice.
-It's going to take us a while.
Ooh, see that's the type of shape I want. Mermaid.
Oh, it says "mermaid".
See what I mean?
Look these are beautiful dresses that look like probably
the designer dresses that we go and see for like £2,000 to £3,000.
And this is like £100.
Back in the boutique, Verity is trying on a wedding gown
with a price tag well over £1,000.
-It's so big and pretty.
-Do you like it?
-And it's classy.
It is. It feels like really expensive and really classy.
Verity has fallen in love with a classic satin dress
without a hint of lace or beading.
I want it now.
The dress, for me, has always been the biggest part, one
of the biggest parts of the wedding. For once, it's all about me.
I really hope he understands how important it is
for me to feel special. I think it really will ruin the day for me
if I don't have the right kind of dress.
-Beautiful-est eldest daughter in the whole wide world.
And it's not just Verity Scott will have to deal with if he messes up.
If Scott does get it wrong, I shall find it very hard not to punch him,
because it's her special day
and she needs to look beautiful and feel beautiful.
So it says, "Lace mermaid/fishtail bridal wedding dress."
This one's £96.
-So we're around the £100 mark, aren't we, still?
Is that kind of the budget you've got in mind, is it?
They all seem to be about the same price so I think that fits in well.
Would I go into a wedding dress shop
and find something exactly the same as that?
I'm sure they would have some of those styles as well, but...
-Yeah, but for £1,500.
-You going to do it?
-Come on, China, don't have a postal strike!
Could you imagine?
I just clicked on "Buy It Now".
It was £96.
Is that an OK amount to spend?
I suspect it's a bit less than Verity thought you'd probably spend,
-but at the end of the day, she turns up...
-She never has to know.
-..if it turns out being the perfect dress.
-She never has to know.
Bought yourself a wedding dress. Yeah, boy!
Scott has spent £96 on a figure-hugging, lacy, beaded dress,
plus an extra £50 on express delivery from China.
Not quite the £1,000 Verity was hoping for.
I'm totally happy with the dress so as long as it arrives in time,
I'm feeling pretty positive right now.
I'm really not sure about the eBay dress.
I've managed to get a dress that I think is beautiful.
Managed to spend not a stupid amount of money on it.
Hopefully it will be all right but...
it's a gamble.
So when you've saved a fortune on a cut price wedding dress,
what do you spend all the spare cash on?
Well, life-size fake jungle animals, obviously.
Off to the life-size fake jungle animal showroom we go, then.
-This looks pretty cool stuff.
Just the thing to make that jungle feel like, well, a jungle.
Here we go, here we are. Ooh.
It's cool. It's a zebra seat.
That's the croc.
That's a nice tiger actually, I quite like that one.
You could end up spending too much, way too much around here.
I think coming here might have been a bad idea.
Cancel the wedding dress.
Look at that, Dave.
There's a lot of good stuff here.
My concern is that there's perhaps too much good stuff here
and Scott's going to want to blow too much of the budget.
With Scott loving everything on show,
these animals could cost the lion's share of the budget.
The whole total with everything included it comes out to £2,219.
Yeah. Your budget can't stretch that far.
So that's the bridesmaids gone. The dresses gone.
That's the venue gone now as well.
Time for some tough decisions on which animals get a wedding invite.
We're definite on the zebra seat.
We're definitely going to go for the American alligator, that's a must.
We like the idea of the gorilla money box,
so we're going to go for that one. And the Bengal.
I really like the tortoise but we've already, like,
gone 50% over what we budgeted for these things.
So I think we're going to have to leave it at that.
And I'll just round it to the £1,500.
-Sounds like a deal.
-Sounds like a deal. Thank you very much.
-Excellent. Very excited. Thank you.
Job done. Scott's just spent £1,500
on a bunch of life-size animals for the wedding.
That went awesome. That was very exciting.
That's one of the things I've been looking forward to coming and doing.
We've blown the budget out of the water and now we need to go back
and work out where we're going to save money elsewhere.
The life-size models are ten times more expensive
than the wedding dress, but hopefully that won't be an issue.
Ah, I'm a little bit gutted
that we didn't get to come away with a dinosaur.
Yeah, shame that.
Still, it's time to head back to Telford
where Verity has received instructions
and props for her hen night.
"Dear Verity, your hen do starts here.
-"Your car picks you up at 7.30."
-What time is it now?
"Now is your chance to rock and roll."
But we're not ready!
The girls have all got shades
and there's a white rock jacket for Verity.
And there's a tour bus full of drink,
which Scott's probably got off eBay.
Scott's bought this before and it's like the cheapest wine ever,
but he's got us something and it's amazing.
Whoo, hen do!
The girls have arrived at a venue for karaoke parties.
Children's karaoke parties.
And Scott's arranged for them to make their very own rock video.
MUSIC: "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake
The girls have literally rocked until they dropped.
But for our actual rock star it's all about the glamour.
Tonight is my stag do and we are in London town.
Tell you what, I am going to have an awesome night tonight
and it's going to be so messy.
-Here's to a big BLEEP night, right?
In Coventry, things are really kicking off.
Scott's laid on free sweets and there's more cheap plonk.
Scott loves cheap alcohol. Lambrini, Chantanel.
It's just like a real children's party.
If that children's party was full of drunk adults, obviously.
But for Scott, it's a much more adult affair.
Our guitar-loving rocker
is in search of a very different kind of G-string.
The boys have headed to a strip club in Soho.
Hey, don't tell Verity I've remortgaged the BLEEP house.
Back at party central...
This looks a bit lame.
But I do wish that there was, like,
a bit of just being able to go out and let my hair down and.
That's what hen nights are about.
Don't worry, Verity, we've got loads of Chantanel, so you know.
That we do. Get it down you!
I want to get my money's worth.
Oh, what will my girlfriend think, eh?
Scott seems very pleased with himself.
Time to go home.
But the girls' night has fizzled out.
It's been different.
I do feel like I kind of wanted to go out and party a little bit.
Verity's band tour bus is going home.
We're in the best strip club in the world. It's full of girls.
We've had lap dances. This is what a stag do is all about.
It's all good fun.
I'm kind of disappointed because I would've liked to have
one big party, like, with all my friends,
and see everyone all like, all the other girls that mean a lot to me.
I'm out with my favourite boys. We're having an awesome night.
It's a night to remember for sure.
Because there was only five of us there, it was more of a
sober affair. And I would have liked to have a bit of party
and a bit of a...bit of more drinking.
As the girls take the tour bus home,
the lads continue to enjoy the sights of London.
It's the morning after the hen do.
Verity and sister, Elita, are having a debrief.
It wasn't what I expected.
Like, I thought we were going to go and get really drunk
and go a bit crazy, so...
Are you disappointed, then?
Part of me's a bit disappointed but it was still fun.
It was something different anyway,
-I think I'll never have something like that again.
Nor will you. It was really different.
But it definitely wasn't what I was expecting.
But a text from Scott might change their opinion.
"Please pass this message to Verity.
"Dear Verity, welcome to part two of your hen do."
Oh, my God.
Just when they thought it was all over, Scott's got a surprise.
They're off for an afternoon of pole dancing.
What on earth made Scott think of that?
At least he's remembered to tell all Verity's mates this time.
Verity takes to the pole like a natural.
And so do the other hens.
Well, maybe not all of them. Sorry, Christine.
I don't think Verity would have picked pole dancing.
-No. But she seems to be enjoying it, though.
She's definitely up for it. She's a sexy little minx.
She was good.
Keep going round, keep going round. Lift your legs. ALL: Yes!
I'm not entirely sure where Scott got the inspiration from,
but he is going to want me to come home
and show him some moves, so, yeah.
Oh, it was so easy.
Next up, the girls are whisked off in a limo to a swanky restaurant.
Where Scott's laid on a lavish meal.
VIP, VIP, VIP!
Followed by cocktails in a VIP lounge.
Are we ready to have a boogie?
And dancing until the early hours.
# Let me take a selfie. #
Tonight's been the best night ever.
I never thought Scott would do anything incredible like that.
Can't even comprehend how much money Scott's spent on tonight.
There's been food, there's been drink.
Everyone's had an amazing time. All my really close friends are here
and it's just been amazing. I'm so happy.
But will her happiness come at a price?
It's the week of the wedding
and Scott's got a delicate mission ahead.
I'm about to buy dresses with the bridesmaids.
I'm kind of feeling a little bit nervous because I find it hard enough
to buy for one girl, let alone to buy for...
I think they'd look awesome in that.
Scott's splashed the cash on the hen do, not to mention the gorilla
and all the other plastic animals.
So he needs some cut-price bridesmaid dresses.
It's £15.00. It's a little bit more than I was hoping.
These little beauties are £5.00
so that definitely fits in with my budget.
What will the bridesmaids think of his scrimping?
I'm 100% hoping they're going to like the dresses.
And if they do, hey, we could be out of here in an hour.
That would be a bonus.
Scott's about to find out because here come the bridesmaids,
Elita, Claire, Bev, and Ally.
I think he should spend as much as he can on a bridesmaids dress.
-Yeah, I think he should spend quite a lot.
-It wants to be quality. It doesn't want to look cheap or tacky.
I don't want to wear pink. I don't want to wear pink.
I don't want to wear pink.
Oh, well that's not great because the dress is pink and £15
with £5 shoes to go with it.
Shall we choose some dresses? ALL: Yeah!
So go and try them on and then come and show me, yeah?
He never does this!
Dealing with four upset or angry girls is probably the least thing
on my list of things to handle today.
It's impossible. You're never going to get it right.
Ah, this looks wedding-y, right?
So is this it? This is the one we're going to wear?
I think so.
This is the dress that I think fits in with the wedding the best.
I think it looks bridesmaids-y.
But no matter what Scott says, Ally isn't impressed.
OK, tell me, what style or look would've been better?
-Not a waistband.
-Not a waistband?
-Ally doesn't like a waistband.
-I like waistbands.
-See I think that the waistband's good
cos we've got something work for,
for somewhere to put flower or corsage or we can work.
Thought you were going to say lose weight!
Well, I wasn't going to say anything, but you know. ALL. Ohh!
I don't like it.
-It looks nice, Ally.
-It does look nice.
I like it how this is the best word you can come up with, "nice".
Go on get them off, I'll go and buy them.
-I'm happy to take it off.
I don't want to wear the dress.
Like, it's not what I would've picked.
If we went bridesmaid shopping,
I wouldn't have picked that at all, but...
They were 70% happy with it.
To me, that is a complete result.
I can't believe how cheap they are.
-This best be because you're...
-Yeah. Verity's best be amazing.
..dress, Scott Adams.
I think if we'd have found the same dress in a designer shop,
Ally would have probably been smiling a little bit more.
£20 budget, complete.
But how will Verity feel?
She's met up with the girls for a coffee and a catch up.
I'm assuming that the hen party cost so much money.
The fact that we did so many activities
and then there was food included for so many,
like, there was 17 of us there.
I honestly think that's eaten up quite a lot of the budget.
As it is, we really know that's
-what's taken away from the wedding.
Went bridesmaid shopping yesterday with Scott.
The budget was a lot lower than what I thought it would've been.
Lower than what you thought?
The dress and shoes cost £20 each.
I'm hoping your dress is going to be pretty good to make up for it.
I can't believe the whole thing cost £20.
I really can't see it looking nice.
I thought the like the maximum low would be like £30,
and then shoes on top. I feel a bit sick now, to be honest.
I am getting a bit nervous
about what he's prioritising in terms of money.
If he doesn't think it's worth spending much on the bridesmaids,
it does make me wonder, is he going to spend much on me?
Speaking of the dress, Scott's had some big news from China.
I've just had a phone call.
The dress has arrived at my folks' house.
I'm going straight there now because I am absolutely desperate to see it.
Really, this dress needs to be perfect
because I've not got any other options left on the table now.
-All right, mate. How you doing?
-So, it's arrived?
Oh, my God. Thank God it's arrived.
Right, it's upstairs.
Behold, either the best idea or the worst idea
I've had for the whole wedding.
This is the defining moment of the planning process.
This is either going to make or break it.
I've got you a knife, there you go.
What do you think? Is it going to be a win?
I think it has to be because we've actually blown
the safety 1.5K on life-size animals now.
Don't say that.
This is it. It's this or nothing.
Right do it, do it, do it.
Here it is. The dress.
This is probably going to make Verity cry for one of two reasons,
either because she's really happy or because she's really, really mad.
To be fair, it looks quite nice.
It's turned up on time. I've just opened it.
I feel like a massive weight has just been lifted off my shoulders
because I personally think it looks awesome.
Wow. I don't think that that is bad at all, do you?
Ah, that actually looks really nice.
I'm hoping that I've just made, like,
the best choice for the whole wedding.
Well, I can't be disappointed because that's what the picture was.
I really like that detail on the back.
Scott's bought Verity a heavily beaded, tightly fitted,
Exactly the opposite of what she was hoping for.
I think that there might be some wedding dress shops
up and down the country that'll be shaking their fist at me.
-Doesn't feel like it's bad quality, does it?
The dress is beautiful
and I haven't had to blow a massive proportion of my budget on it.
Maybe I've started a new craze.
Scott's pulled another winner.
Good job. Good job.
I am 100% happier than a pig in shit.
Verity and the bridesmaids are still in the dark
about when the wedding will be.
But a text from Scott is about to change that.
"Band about to be played on BBC radio, 96FM. Listen in if you can."
-What does that mean?
-Who's that from?
Scott's gone down to BBC Radio Shropshire
for a very important broadcast.
Rocker band, Envy Of The State,
Scott Adams is with me in the studio.
Scott, hi, how you doing?
Hello, Jim. I am fine. Thank you for having me.
Over the last few weeks I have been planning a wedding all on my own.
That's my wedding!
Her name is Verity Clarke
and she's obviously the most beautiful girl in the world
and so I would like to invite Verity Clarke to our wedding
that happens to be this Saturday.
-Oh, my God!
Yes, this Saturday, so she's got a couple of days. Pack your bags.
-I've got two days.
-'Get your hair done.'
-I hope she turns up.
-I will. I'll be there. Promise!
Thank you very much.
That invite was very Scott, very dramatic. Kind of about me,
-but still mostly about Scott cos Scott was on the radio.
I hope Verity was listening. I'm very, very pleased.
As time and money run short,
Scott splashes out on decorations for the venue,
sexy wedding undies costing almost as much as the dress itself,
and diamond encrusted wedding rings for almost 1,000.
Nice. Very sparkly.
There's also matching suits for the groomsmen at a total of £525.
With money disappearing fast, the last thing Scott needs
is some kind of unfortunate surprise.
It's the day before the wedding
and Verity is at stepmum Christine's house
where the one thing that's played on her mind the most
is about to be revealed.
-How are you feeling, darling?
-Are you? That's good.
-No, I'm not. I'm really nervous.
-You look lovely this morning.
-Why, what you nervous about?
-What do you think?
Today is the day of the dress.
And I feel a bit sick. I haven't slept all night.
Yeah, I'm cacking it, to be honest.
I want to feel special on my wedding day,
and if I don't feel right in the dress,
I'm just not going to feel comfortable for the whole day.
I'm sure it will be fine.
Well, she's about to find out,
because Scott and his brother David
are just around the corner with the dress.
Here you go then, bro. I guess you should do the honours.
Wish me luck.
-Yeah. I'm sure it'll be fine.
-See you later, dress.
The dress is just on its way to Verity.
Personally, I think it looks amazing,
so I'm just really keeping my fingers crossed that Verity thinks the same.
As the dress disappears into the fog,
the bridesmaids gather round for moral support,
wondering which bridal boutique they'll be going to.
There's some nice shops.
I haven't been but there are some nice, like,
little boutiques and stuff.
I'm sure whatever he's got you, he will have put a lot of thought
into it, and I'm sure it will be beautiful.
But it'll be nice to know when you're trying it on, though.
I want to go see my dress.
Verity won't need to go and see the dress
because the dress is coming to her.
Why is David here with a box?
Oh, my God, no!
Oh, my God!
-This for Verity.
-It is David! It's David!
-I told you it was David.
Bye. See you tomorrow, guys.
Oh, my God. Why am I not going to a boutique?
-Verity's first impressions...
-..are not good.
How'd it go?
I didn't hear any screams when I left.
-Hopefully it'll be all right.
-We'll know very soon.
I'm more nervous about this than anything else that we've done,
-to be fair.
-I'm turning my phone off.
Shitest thing ever.
And it seems that David was right to be nervous.
No, but she didn't want to be trying it on here.
-She wanted to go to like a proper shop.
-Yeah, be in a proper shop.
-This is not what she wanted.
-It might be really nice.
It just means that we don't get to go anywhere now.
Yeah, but that's bollocks,
the whole thing with a bride is going to the bridal boutique.
You get to try on a dress. You get to feel like a princess.
And I don't even, what if I don't like it, I can't go anywhere,
can't get, like, look for anything else, can I?
Everything I wanted, like, I haven't been able to do it.
And I thought the one thing I would get to do would be
to go to a nice dress shop and see my dress hanging up
the way that everyone normally does. And now I don't.
Like, everything that should be special has been taken away from me.
Oh, come on.
I feel a bit sick now.
You don't know where it's from either. Maybe somewhere really cheap.
Why don't you and Ally open it together? OK.
See you in a minute, darling.
This is the most BLEEP up thing ever.
I really hope, like, I'm being dramatic and it's just perfume.
Yeah, no, it's not just perfume, it's a dress...
with a lot of lace on.
It looks very tight.
It's just the principle, like, why am I not in a nice boutique
and get to, like, try it on and have a glass of wine, and...
You can have wine.
It's got some threads hanging off here. That's nice,
A nice little detail there.
There's a mark up here.
And what's that? Oh, a bit of the netting's coming away there.
Well, this experience just keeps getting better and better.
My dress is going to be falling apart as I wear it.
I can almost guarantee because it's come here it's come off eBay.
Like, why does he think I don't want to feel special in my wedding dress?
The one time I'm going to wear a wedding dress.
I've never felt more unspecial in my entire life, to be honest.
Well, if you put it on you might feel different.
He hasn't even put any thought into it.
And Scott's spending on the dress isn't the only thing that's tight.
Yeah, it's not going to fit.
Ow, ow, my hair! Oh, God.
Right, so there's, like, a catch missing
so we can't actually do the catch up.
-So it hasn't even got a catch on it?
These seams are pulling so tight
they're literally about to rip here and here.
Then there's a bead falling off. Course there is.
It is actually painful. Is it really red there?
It hurts, like, there
and I've only had it on for like, what, ten minutes?
I literally can't move in it. Like, it is so tight here.
This is ridiculous.
Well, we're going to have to, like, speak to him,
cos you can't wear it.
With Verity barely able to even walk down the stairs,
it seems the dress Scott bought for £96 online is off-kilter.
Oh! Oh, my God.
-You can't walk in it, can you?
-I can't move.
It's lovely, but you can't move.
The bust is going to have to be shrunk.
The tummy's going to have to be shrunk.
It's going to have to be loosened, these panels here, they're pulling.
It's going to have to have the beads sewn back onto it.
-It's going to have to have the hook sewn back onto it.
-Oh, my God.
There are is so much stuff that has to be done.
So we've got quite a long list of things
-we need to get changed here, don't we?
We can't do that in a day. That's not going to happen.
Time for an emergency phone call to Scott.
Hey, Scott, how you doing?
Yeah, how's it going?
Yeah, she's hating the fact that she hasn't gone to a bridal shop though,
but it doesn't fit her.
She can't walk, she can't sit down, she can't do anything.
It's ripping at the seams it's that tight.
So we need it, like, sorted.
-I don't know anything about dresses.
-Well, that's not good enough, Scott.
OK, right leave it with me, OK?
OK, then, keep in touch.
It could've gone better, really.
It's a worry that she can't move in it.
Time for a last minute ring around to find a seamstress
and hopefully a miracle.
I'll get the girls down ASAP, then, to you.
Verity has to make the half an hour journey in the vague hope
that the seamstress can do the impossible.
I really hope she can.
-Can you save our dress?
I don't know. Let's have a look, come on in.
Oh, I'm really worried that you can't. It is very small.
If there's nothing in the seams there is nothing we can do.
I'm disappointed that this is the dress he's chosen.
I think it's just majorly backfired.
They've put glue all over the dress.
They've put seams where there shouldn't be them,
and this is what happens when you buy a cheap dress.
-Is it tight up here?
-No, it's too loose at the top.
-Too lose at the top, too tight on the hip.
When you're planning a wedding, one of the biggest things
on the budget is deciding the dress.
I get the fact that we've got cheap bridesmaids dresses,
and we accepted that because we wanted Verity
to get the best dress possible. But this has caused so much stress today.
I just really hope for Verity's sake
that this lady is as good as she seems to be
and can pull it out the bag
cos we're going to need a miracle, I think, on this dress.
The seamstress will have to work through the night
to even stand a chance of getting the dress finished.
I'm really nervous. Like, I am terrified
that she is not going to be able to do it in time.
I just don't want 7.00 tomorrow morning, or whatever time it is,
to arrive and for me to still not have a dress.
That would be a disaster.
It's now out of Verity's hands.
All she can do is hope the dress will fit.
The night before the biggest day of her life
might well be a sleepless one.
Scott's arrived at the venue to check out his animal display.
We need to make sure people don't sit on this.
But Scott just couldn't let go of the Galapagos tortoise
he wanted so badly, so he shelled out another £300,
bringing his total animal spend to £1,800.
With its animals in place, the boys are having a final tot up.
-£3,200 on the venue.
£1,800 for these animals.
With the unexpected expense of the seamstress,
the boys have stitched themselves up.
£250 today for the dress alterations.
Oh, my God.
We've rinsed that budget, haven't we?
To be perfectly honest, it's not a massive surprise
that we've blown all the budget.
That's entirely in keeping with Scott's character.
We're going to have to cut back a little bit on the bubbly
for the guests, but hey, when the guests know that it's because
we've had to get Verity's dress perfect, they'll totally understand.
She possibly might have liked some of the money that's spent
on the animals to have been put towards a wedding dress.
It's possible she might think that.
No, I'm certain, that's exactly what she'll think.
It's the day of the wedding and Verity and her bridesmaids
have arrived in Newquay.
With his focus elsewhere, Scott's forgotten to book a make-up artist,
so Ally fills in.
I do not know what I'm doing.
And concerns about the dress are still high.
I am nervous about putting on the dress cos I've tried it on once
after having it altered slightly, and there's some more alterations
going on two or three hours before the wedding.
I really hope it fits.
Down the coast at the Eden Project,
the boys are busy dressing the reception room
with their jungle theme,
giving the cakes a scrub, standard.
Just cleaning the cakes. You know, we don't want to be serving
cakes with fluff on.
Is this what the pros do?
And perfecting his precious menagerie.
In Newquay, what will Verity make of those £15 bridesmaid dresses?
Oh, I like it.
I really do, I love it.
Ally, your face. You look lovely.
I really, really like the colour.
Ally, your face... Aww.
I think you look beautiful.
Ally is putting on a brave face.
Let's hope verity doesn't have to do the same with her £96 dress.
Has the seamstress worked her magic?
Oh, my God.
-And it fits so much better.
-It does. It really does.
It looks amazing.
I can walk. I've got boobs.
You're going to get married!
Incredibly, the dress fits.
It's time for Cinderella to go to the ball...
To Verity. You look so beautiful.
Don't make me cry.
After a frantic few hours, Scott and his band are ready to rock and roll,
but they're not the only ones making things snappy.
Who'd have thought you'd be coming to my wedding, eh?
And Scott's got some explaining to do to the registrars.
The rings are going to be placed in here.
-They all right?
As the girls make their way to the venue,
there's a pit stop for a very special guest.
-Are you OK?
-Yeah, I'm fine.
-I'm so glad you're here.
I want to find out where we're going.
-Have you no clue?
-No, I haven't got a clue.
The guests arrive at England's biggest rainforest.
Back in the bridal carriage, the penny's finally dropped.
The Eden Project. Oh, my God!
Are you kidding me?
Oh, of course he chose a bloody jungle, didn't he?
The only jungle he could find in England.
-It's going to be so sweaty!
-Oh, my God!
Walking towards England's only massive jungle.
Inside England's only massive jungle, the guests are in place.
Scott's just got one interesting task left.
He's dunking the rings in with the crocodiles
which means the only way to get them out is to put your hands in.
Let's hope our bride has still got a finger left to put it on.
It's taken three weeks, £12,000, and one plastic gorilla.
Now all Scott can do
is hope that Verity is happy to walk on the wild side.
# I've put diamonds on my promises
# So you know that they will stay... #
-You've brought the crocodiles.
-Look where the rings are.
-Oh, my God!
Will you take Verity to be your wife?
And, Verity, will you take Scott to be your husband?
# It's all for love
# It's all for love
# I will do anything for your love...
# Carry your story wherever I may go...
So, Scott and Verity, it is now my very great pleasure
to announce that you are husband and wife.
Congratulations. You may kiss your bride.
# It's all for love
# It's all for love
# I will do anything... #
Well, I can expect anything from Scott,
but I wasn't expecting the crocodiles.
It's different, isn't it?
I can't describe it. Don't, you'll make me go.
It was beautiful. It was lovely.
Yeah, I can't believe he managed to get this. Incredible.
Incredible. Very, very proud. Sorry.
I'm very happy for her.
As the sun sets on the Eden Project,
it's time for Verity to see the reception area,
and where a large of the budget has been spent.
He's a handsome fellow.
Is this is where the money for my dress went, Scott?
How much were the animals?
The animals in total with delivery cost...£1,800.
Yeah, you could've spent that on my wedding dress, but that's OK.
Luckily, Verity hasn't gone ape,
and soon everyone's caught jungle fever.
I think the day has been absolutely fantastic.
I don't think Scott could have done better if he'd have tried.
I think Scott is a very lucky boy
that everything came off so well tonight.
He said he spent nearly £2,000 on plastic animals.
I'm wearing a 15 quid dress!
And he spent two grand!
I'm going, right. He owes me.
Right, where is he?
You spent £1,800 on plastic animals.
Yeah, I did. Do you like them?
Have you had a photograph with them all yet?
What the hell went on in your brain for that?
Ordering a dress from eBay is not the best thing to do
if you want a stress-free wedding.
-Do you like it?
-Yeah, it's absolutely beautiful.
I don't think I can eat very much in it, but that's OK.
But actually, at the end of the day, miraculously,
he's pulled it all off.
It seems Scott's jungle-themed wedding is a roaring success.
It's been so good. You've done the best job ever.
Like, I couldn't ever imagine doing this and it's just amazing.
I'm so proud of you. You've done so good.
And there's a romantic tropical treat in store.
Check out our bridal suite.
What?! Oh, my God!
For me the bridal suite I was thinking plush interior,
Jacuzzi bath, um, four-poster bed, a bit of air-con maybe.
-Awesome. Is that a mosquito net?
She's going to hate sleeping in the rainforest tonight, I can just tell.
Is this is where you'll be tonight?
-It's where we're spending the night.
He likes to think he's his own little Tarzan.
-We're not really staying here, are we?
We're not, are we?
I think Jane won't like it.
Well, if she doesn't like it, hopefully she'll enjoy
the final wedding surprise.
Put your hands together for the bride and groom!
Scott has written a special song just for Verity.
# I'm so in love with you
# You're all I ever think about
# You're all I ever dream about... #
Next week, risk-taker, Dave, pushes the boat out.
Are you with me or are you against me?
As he plans a wedding on a remote island
for his sea-fearing bride, Rosie,
as her close-knit family watch his every move.
He can't always put you after surfing then golf.
Will this groom's wedding plan stay afloat?
-Is she good with boats, is she, Dave?
Or will he be made to walk the plank?
Regrets? Yeah, maybe.
Maybe I've done something really stupid.
# You're all I ever dream about
# You're the butterfly that makes my day
# Your lantern always lights my way
# And that'll never change
# That'll never change. #
