The 2020 wedding season has been unofficially canceled for months – hours of preparations and dance routines purged from the calendars. But for those still craving that dose of matrimonial bliss, Netflix has the answer. Say I Do, the latest sure-to-succeed reality series from the streamer, is the ultimate in wedding planning programs. Each episode introduces a new couple whose unique circumstances have either prevented them from getting married or kept them from having the wedding of their dreams. Enter: interior designer Jeremiah Brent, fashion designer Thai Nguyen, and Chef Gabriele Bertaccini. Nguyen has his own fashion line, Thai Nguyen Atelier, which boasts celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Emma Roberts. Bertaccini is the founder and creative director of Phoenix-based catering company Tocco Food. The three men plan each couple’s wedding to their specifications. The entire operation, including the wedding at the end, transpires over the course of a single week. A team of loving and personable men uses their skills to better the lives of others. You will laugh! You will cry! It’s not a groundbreaking concept, but it doesn’t need to be. The beauty of Say I Do lies not in its structure, but in its execution. To be fair, at this point in quarantine we find ourselves entertained by virtually anything that provides a mental escape.
