Imagine if “Jersey Shore” and “Bridezillas” smushed and made a baby. Scary, right?

Or it could be the makings of a hit reality show -- at least, that’s what VH1 is hoping. The network announced Thursday that they’d added a new series to their lineup: “My Big Friggin’ Wedding.”

From the producers of “Jersey Shore,” the show will follow five over-the-top East Coast couples (two from Long Island and three from New Jersey) in their drama-filled journey to “I Do.”


Forget improperly discarded feminine napkins and uncooperative bridesmaids. These couples will encounter surprising prenuptial agreements; they’ll watch as bridal showers unexpectedly turn into, um, baby showers; they’ll face drama with smoke machines and laser machines … and there will be plenty of fighting along the way (10 episodes, actually).

Here’s a look at the couples attempting to make it down the aisle:

-- Tammi and Danny: she’s a Long Island princess who has a slight obsession with her dog and wants a visit from the stork. He’s a divorced father with three kids who has a prenup waiting to be signed.

-- Amanda and Matt: He’s a mama’s boy with her faced tattooed on his back to prove it. She’s a Dominican gal with a temper and a meddling mother-in-law.

-- Megin and Johnny: He’s the “Meatball King of New Jersey.” No, really. Oh, and he’s unemployed. She, meanwhile, is hoping to give birth before the big day so she can fit into her dress.

-- Alyssa and Tyler: They’re party animals that come from a long line of partiers. Will they stay sober long enough to make it to the altar?

-- Sandra and Joey: The couple lives with Joey’s parents. She’s not fond of cooking or cleaning -- mostly because most of her time is spent worrying about whether her derriere will fit into her wedding dress. He’s mainly just fearful of her prying family.


“My Big Friggin’ Wedding” will walk down the TV aisle on Monday, Nov. 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
