    ABC to spend 5 nights on "Weddings Gone Wild"

    FROM AN EXTRAVAGANT ARABIAN NIGHTS WEDDING TO QUICKIE VEGAS NUPTIALS,
    "WEDDINGS GONE WILD: ANYTHING FOR LOVE" CHRONICLES COUPLES'
    HIGHLY UNUSUAL PATHS TO THE ALTAR


    The ABC News Series, Anchored by Diane Sawyer, Airs Five Consecutive
    Monday Nights at 10:00 p.m., ET, Beginning June 14



    Diane Sawyer takes a funny and sometimes poignant look at some very different couples and their unusual paths to wedded bliss in "Weddings Gone Wild: Anything for Love," a new, five-part series from ABC News. Each hour focuses on the stories of several grooms and brides-to-be as they face various challenges in their wedding planning efforts. Whether they're trying to pull off an elaborate extravaganza or overcome personal adversity that puts their wedding in jeopardy, all of the couples demonstrate incredible determination to make their dream day a reality. "Weddings Gone Wild: Anything for Love" airs on five consecutive Monday nights, beginning MONDAY, JUNE 14 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

    The weddings chronicled in the series range from over-the-top blow-outs -- like a quarter-of-a-million-dollar Arabian Nights-themed celebration, complete with an elephant and belly-dancing bridesmaids -- to quick ceremonies at a Las Vegas wedding chapel. One couple is able to get their celebration entirely paid for by companies serving as the wedding's official sponsors - all they have to do is advertise a little. There is the wedding where everything goes wrong - from killer bees to broken-down cars. And what wedding saga would be complete without the presence of a "momzilla," a mother so determined to put her stamp on her daughter's big day that she may just drive the lovebirds to elope.

    Some of the nuptials are more poignant: An African-American couple holds their wedding at a North Carolina plantation where the groom's ancestors once toiled as slaves, and a man plans a second wedding for his wife, who has lost all memory of her wedding day as the result of a car accident.

    Just as diverse as the weddings are some of the unlikely couples, including a weekend belly dancer who finds love with the drummer in her band and a man who tells his long-waiting girlfriend that he'll propose if his favorite hockey team wins the Stanley Cup. Then there's a duo at odds-she wants a beach wedding, he wants a Christmas-themed bash-who reach a very creative compromise.

    Diane Sawyer anchors "Weddings Gone Wild: Anything for Love." Ann Reynolds is the senior producer. Shelley Ross is the executive producer.

    I am not a big fan of crazy brides, I guess I am going to have to pass.
