“Don’t Tell The Bride” – Are Looking For Engaged Couples

Network Ten announced they would be making the Australian version of the show Don’t Tell The Bride, and reputable production company Southern Star is currently looking for engaged couples to be on the show.

The premise of the show is the groom organises the dream wedding for his bride.

Source Bottle have made the call out.

It says:


“Don’t Tell the Bride” is an exciting new television series.


The show gives cash-strapped couples a budget to create the wedding of their dreams. The only catch is the groom has to plan the whole wedding in secret.

“Don’t Tell the Bride” is an opportunity for the groom to impress his bride by planning the most memorable day of their lives.

• Must both be over 18 years of age
• Must be currently engaged
• Willing and able to get legally married between June – August 2012
• Have a best man and a bridesmaid willing to be on the show with you

Please email with the following information:
– Names, address and contact numbers
– A few sentences about you and why you are an ideal couple for the show
– Include a recent photo of bride and groom


4 June 2012 @ 5pm Eastern Daylight Saving Time

Thanks Denise for sending this in.

Thea, is an email address not a web address.

5 Clare { 04.20.12 at 10:17 pm }

Does anyone know if this requires you to spend 3 weeks apart? As according to wikipedia that is what the UK’ers had to do. I would love this as I am trying to plan a wedding with both of us on a pension (I have two children with a really severe neurological degenerative disease), but 3 weeks apart could be very interesting in terms of carer options…

6 Suzie McMullen { 04.21.12 at 11:31 am }

Me and my partner have been engaged for 2 yrs, and we keep trying to plan the wedding but everytime we do, something gets in our way whether it be the financial side of things, lets be honest 9x out of ten it is, or it being the fact that the month I was going to get measured for my dress I found out I was pregnant. So with having to raise our infant daughter and my 8yr old that I already had before I met my man, we are now more strapped for cash than ever. We were supposed to get married last November, but clearly things have been put on hold since having our baby.

iam trying to sign up but cant seem to found it me and my partner have been together neraly 2 yrs we got engaged a few days go we have a lil one yr old boy that means the world to us last yr we lost four loved ones so last yr was a sad time so our lil boy came as our micrle baby to help us with all of the pain we suffered we both dont work and would love to get married before anything else happens as other family members r sick to its just we cant afford to get married coz its so expensive

Hi, I have been engaged to my fiancé a year
And a half now and we really want to get
Married. I’m am 20 and studying and my fiance is
26. We are living on our own and can’t afford to pay for a
wedding. We will have to wait until I finish
studying three years from now. Nothing
Would make us happier than to get married
In the next year.

hi my name is paul my lovely partner jade and i have been engaged since 2007 and then our son Reif was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia) a potentualy life threatining disease wich put both our and familys lives through a lot of greaf and heartake. we are just an ordanary family trying to get by with what we have,reif was just cleared of illness 6 months ago, it was a tough 3.5 to 4 years of life for us what with little aurora being so young and my other daughter storm on the way. the rut we have fallen into is still affecting us now with monthley visits for reif and the debt from all the work i mist due to hospital apoinments and some sickness, anyway it would be wonderful if we had the oportunity to get married an add some happiness to our story, I know the family would be excited and thrilled for us to finaly tie the knot so to speak.
kind regards. paul leverence

17 nathan { 05.04.12 at 9:24 am }

Hi im 26 have 3 boys 4 2 and6months i have been engaged to my partner for 7yrs now as our wedding got put off when my partner fell pregnant we have been through everything possible our youngest son having brain opperations havin to leave jobs to care for my boys but all we want is to be together forever n i know that it would make my partner the happiest mum on earth please please help us

18 Jaimee { 05.04.12 at 12:38 pm }

Hi, my name is Jaimee and my partner and I have been engaged for 3 years. We really want to get married but cannot afford to as we have 3 children under the age of 4. Taylor is our 4 year old son, Ruby is 1 year old and our little baby Xavier is only 8 weeks old and are currently living on one income as my boss 2 years ago went bankrupt when I was 6 weeks away from having my daughter Ruby. We are not interested in having a big wedding,
just a really low key intimate wedding with close friends and family. It’s a struggle at the moment to just pay the everyday living expenses like Mortgage, Power, Rates aswell as getting ready for our son to start prep next year so that leaves us with no extra money to save for our wedding. It would be very interesting to see how close my partner would get it to what I would like for our wedding. Would love the opportunity as I don’t see us having the chance anytime soon to get married on our own.

19 Katherine { 05.09.12 at 12:31 pm }

Hi all, you can email or head to the website to apply. We’re going through applications at the moment and would love to talk to you.

20 Katherine { 05.09.12 at 12:37 pm }

Clare, you do need to be separated for three weeks and will need time off work during this period.

21 Clare { 05.09.12 at 12:41 pm }

Thanks for responding Katherine. No biggy if we are accepted (long shot I know). H2B can live at home and I will go stay with my parents as they can help with the kids for 3 weeks. Easy peasy I just needed to get my head around the idea. Goodluck to all that have entered I cant wait to see this broadcasted in Australia!!!

22 greg bernard { 05.10.12 at 10:29 am }

wow, this would definately make me mr popular.. have entered, fingers crossed!!!

23 Heidi { 05.10.12 at 8:29 pm }

Totally applying! Have been engaged over 9 years now, pretty sure my fiance will have Elvis do the ceremony or something equally horrifying, but least I’ll have something to look back and laugh at.

24 Liz king { 05.11.12 at 12:17 pm }

Hi our names are Elizabeth and Craig weve been together for 5 years this year engaged also for 5 years on new years also we have tried 2 times already to get married but even a basoc wedding we cant even afford. We both work and can only rent and drive an old car we have 2 beautiful children 4 and 5 they are happy and healthy. We dont want anything over the top we just want to be complete. We have each other thats wat makes us happy. Liz bought a wedding dress previosly it was stunning but we gave it away after finding out its the same dress the bride from the Ajax spray and wipe ad on TV wore. I just want to see her shine on our wedding just as much as she shines in our life.

33 Clare { 05.15.12 at 6:39 pm }

All these people getting phone calls what number are these calls coming from?

34 Stuart { 05.18.12 at 5:25 pm }

35 Sam { 05.21.12 at 4:08 pm }

None of you deserve to get on this show because you can’t even follow basic instructions… This is merely a blog about the show, this is not where you apply to participate

36 Anonymouse. { 05.22.12 at 2:00 pm }

Wah wah wah. You all want in so bad and are “so desperate” to get married? Go to the local registry, done.
Every story here “we cant afford to because we ended up having kids” – Stop breeding, put away $50 every week, done and dusted.
Christ. One sob story after the next, and majority of you are full of bullcrap anyway.

37 Katy { 05.25.12 at 9:56 am }

There is no reason to be so nasty, everyone wants and deserves
A big wedding and that doesn’t come from a registry office, yes I agree
the sob stories are a bit unfair to try and push through and no one is more deserving than anyone else no matter the circumstance, I was happy to make it through the first round and don’t think we’ve made it to the next but I am happy for anyone that gets the chance to have a fabulous wedding. GROW UP ASSHOLE.

38 W/gong { 06.05.12 at 3:34 pm }

im with many others hate hearing cant have my wedding cause of this and they have kids. and are paying off a house. thats not a sob story really i wish i had half of those.
a real sob story to me is.
someone lost their job cause financial crisis caused major cut backs of the persons job they were in, steel industry where i live died causing sub contractors to lose heaps of work, no work for me.
my fiancee and i we set a date 2 years ago to be married but my loss of income stopped that from happening.
oh shes a lovely girl she also works with kids as a childcare worker loves to have her own family one day, but recently found out she cant have her own kids unless it is done by IVF due to a doctor screwing up an OP i had to repair a hernia had now means i cant give her that without going through IVF. now being my old job as a rigger there is very little work where i live and to many un enmployed in his field . i went and got myself into UNI to do a degree in Nursing to be an RN. no shortage of work in that field. but it is also a 3 year degree.
now thinking what i have said.
i have a finacee that works with kids and loves kids cant have her own without IVF. cant afford that.
we both had to move home while i study a new career. living together even cant afford that.
wedding we had planned and had the date but job loss ment. couldnt afford that.
most womens 3 dreams in life they are have a nice husband, kids and a lovely home to share it in. hmmm i wish i could give my finacee them. we did live together but lost that dream for now til we can afford to get it back, but the other two i dont see happening to soo
dang my finacee would just kill to have kids and never be married. i cant give her that but atleast i know i can maybe try give her a wedding.

thats why i applied for it. had to email in a casting info fingers crossed may get a chance…..

if someone says thats a sob story. so be it and if they say that is lies. they are welcome to come see for themselves.

43 mel pritchard { 07.12.12 at 6:48 pm }

hi have u picked ur couples yet . I entered my son and love to know how u r going

44 christina { 07.19.12 at 12:44 pm }

my fiance and i have been together for almost 7yrs we are childhood sweet hearts meeting at 12 but dating at 15yrs. we have set the date of july 6th 2013 (im not sure if this is too late) We love each other very much but we do have very different thoughts on things :) it would be extremely interesting to see his take on the wedding. im sure it would be hilarious to see him try to plan everything he can’t multitask at all :)

45 Jasmine { 07.24.12 at 9:34 pm }

Dammit wish I’d seen this earlier! Would be awesome to have some cash for a real wedding. Planning a backyarder at the moment! Feel pretty certain that with my man organizing it though $24,000 would get spent on beer & the remaining $1000 on the rest of the wedding!

46 robyn { 07.25.12 at 5:40 pm }

I saw this TV program advertised online and thought what an amazing opportunity it would be to be involved in this, as I’m a quite control freak and my partner would be so funny to watch as he’s a procrastinator, But after reading all of your heart felt pleads for a wedding, I wish you all the best of luck with getting on the show, I know my partner would be very funny to watch on the show, but with all that you all have been through my heart goes out to you all!! I wish I could help you all have your dream wedding!!
with regards to the harsh comments on sob storys, there not sob stories there reality, some peoples lives dont go as smoothly as others.
this is coming from someone who has it pretty easy. But i also have common sense and with this i know, not all children are planned and they definatley should never go through what alot of them go through.
life is unfair unfortunatly some people are able to have children some are not (deserving or not) i just hope you can all see how lucky you are to have each other and that lifes to short, make the most of what you have as you may not be here tomorrow – what difference will a ring make once your gone, none . so just make happy memories with the time you have.
I wish i could help make all your dreams come true but reality isnt a pleasant thing so i just wish you all the best!

GOOD LUCK to you all
Yours Sincerely,

47 Lisa { 07.26.12 at 6:53 pm }

I would just like to no if this is still open for couples .

48 Mike { 07.27.12 at 5:47 pm }

I was just wondering if there’s a Australian version or if you make one I’d love to give my fiance her dream wedding but as we have young kids it’s hard.

49 Frenchy { 07.27.12 at 7:20 pm }

Oh my, reading all this I can’t help but feeling a surge of compassion for humanity. It’s really scary to see so many people desperate enough to upload their contact details and rather sad life stories into this website for everyone to see instead of following instructions and contacting the production company directly. Who can deny that social classes exist in Australia- seems to be as bad as England.

50 steven lee { 07.27.12 at 10:10 pm }

hi me and my partner are wonting to get married, we been together for 8 years and engaged for 5 years. we just wont to get married not big church wedding, we have been thought so much, i have mental illness, so cant work a minute. and i think she would love it if i could give her a day to remember .please help if you can thks s lee

51 Jerome Curtis { 07.27.12 at 11:39 pm }

Hi Corrine and I have been engaged for 2 years we have postponed it twice due to her being a new teacher and financially it has been difficult. I feel responsible for the finacial burden and would love to give her the wedding of her dreams. I surprised the proposal at my 50th and she had no clue she was blown away especially how I had picked a gorgeous diamond to match her. We would love for this opportunity. Thanks Jerome

52 Sally and Aaron { 07.28.12 at 11:17 am }

HI! Is it too late to enter? Were engaged, Az is supporting me through uni and has to work away from me and our 2yrold to do this. We consider ourselves lucky enough to do this but having our wedding paid for and the fact I wont need to do anything is any brides dream isnt it? After all its about the marriage not the wedding itself, yeah? That perspective seems to get lost with couples these days. But i have ultimate faith in his taste and what he believes I like. So i think it would be interesting to see if he can handle it hehe!! Cant wait to hear from you!

53 Felisha.D { 07.28.12 at 10:34 pm }

Hi –
Sounds like I’m too late to enter but will you be doing a second series?
If so we would love to enter.


54 Victoria { 07.29.12 at 9:44 pm }

Hi I am not entering for me because I am only 13 but I am secretly entering my parents for this but only mum knows and we would like to surprise dad because my mum and my dad haven’t had a real wedding they just ran away together which I think is so romantic but I would love for my parents to have a nice wedding where my dad gets to do exactly what he’s ever wanted…. Doing everything his way hehehehe I have 3 brothers and 1 sister and sometimes mum says its hard to take care of everyone with what we have but we get through and sometimes I hear mum and dad talking about this new show and wishing they could enter but they don’t know if they have to pay for everything or if they people that make this show do but they don’t want to enter because they are pretty convinced that they have to pay but I heard someone say that you don’t have to pay so that’s why I’m doing this so my parents can have a nice but dad-like wedding. Thank you

55 Meg { 08.02.12 at 8:42 pm }

I’m assuming that if the ratings are good for this years season there will be another for 2013? I missed the deadline to apply for this year and would love to be able to apply for the next lot if there will be another season. I’ve watched every season and episode of the British and American versions of Don’t Tell the Bride and enjoy the anticipation and especially the reaction of the Grooms when they finally see their Brides again on the day of the wedding. Trusting my other half to be fully entrusted in organizing the wedding with his bestman however will probably give me an anxiety attack, but with our lack of funds for the next few years I guess we’ll be having an extra long engagement which seems to be the case of many of the couples that have applied.

56 Lisa { 08.04.12 at 1:15 pm }

I am soooo excited, I love this show have seen all episodes of the English & US versions. I have been engaged for almost 9 years yes that’s 9 years my fiancée and I have know each other since we were 16 years old. We have two beautiful daughters together and a beautiful home but unfortunately have had to put our wedding on the back burner on more than one occasion due to lack of funds!!!

I know from watching the other versions we women don’t seem to have a lot of faith in our other halfs when I comes to the day most women dream about but I have complete faith as I know that my partner knows me better than I know myself sometimes, so I wouldn’t have any problem handing over total control to him.

Bring on the next season and we will be entering for sure!!!

Shhhh don’t tell the Bride!!!!

57 Vicky { 08.05.12 at 5:52 pm }

Hello my fiance and I live on opposite ends if the earth hehe we have to truly know each other to plan our wedding for next year any chance there will be a show in 2013? We are both financially hard up but want to make our day special :-)

58 Loren { 08.07.12 at 11:17 am }

I wish I made the deadline! We would have loved to enter will this be an on going tv show? Will there be another casting call?

59 Bonnie { 08.07.12 at 9:15 pm }

WHY would people leave their address and number in the comments section?

60 Natalie { 08.16.12 at 6:06 pm }

Hi was just wondering if you are going to do another call out for more couples next year as i would love to enter as i think it would be a hoot to see what my partner comes up with lol

61 Reality Raver { 08.16.12 at 6:38 pm }

Natalie – Network TEN will see how the show rates and if it does well they will announce a second series.

62 sharnie { 08.17.12 at 5:21 am }

my sister would love 2 get married shes been engaged 8yrs

63 Joseph Skyrim { 08.17.12 at 8:13 am }

Just wanted to say 25k is quite a lot of cash, how the hell can someone stuff it up so badly? :/ My wife and I had a smallish wedding (for her it was smallish anyway) with 80 people. Still managed to fit save the dates, invites, hired car, church, reception venue & good food, DJ, photographers, clothes (bride groom & entourage), dance lessons, etc. all for under 15k.

Is part of that money meant for their honeymoon?

64 mel pritchard { 08.17.12 at 6:40 pm }

please STOP sending me e-mails on other peoples comments ta

65 Julie-Anne Hallam { 08.21.12 at 9:53 pm }

66 Georgie Porgie { 08.24.12 at 11:12 pm }

Yo quit posting those illiterate sob stories, ya silly bogans with your illegitimate children lol…just kidding…sort of… lol. If you’ve been engaged for that long then maybe you should just throw some meat on the barbie, grab some streamers and fairy lights, a cheap celebrant and have the ceremony and reception in the backyard! Job done!

67 annie { 08.31.12 at 11:03 am }

We are hoping there is another season of this show, as my partner knows he can do it no problem and I would love to see him do it. Will be keeping a look out for the next season and keeping my fingers crossed. Kind regards Kira

My names Brendan and Im currently engaged to a pretty hot firey girl. I think this show is made for a couple like us to be on. I would have some great random ideas for the wedding that I wouldn’t have any chance of doing If Lauren was involved.
Consider us please.

Hi my name is Jade, I am now 20 years old, and have a beautiful daughter Lilli, Lilli is two in December. I broke up with Lilli’s dad unfortunately, but have now found true love with Taz. Taz is certainly lucky to be alive, he was run over when he was eight years old, by a four wheel drive vehicle, and was not expected to live, consequently he has to exsist on a pension, because as you can imagine all the damage he sustained to his head and body. We would love to get married, but saving any money is impossible, I raise my daughter singlehandedly and Taz is unable to work. Please make our dreams come true and select us for your show, we would be eternally grateful. Jade

No offense to the sob stories but you can get married without forking out heaps. That is, if getting married is more important than a wedding (which it should be). I have two daughters with disabilities. I am on the carer pension. Hubby is on disability pension (not kids dad-and I dont get child support). We hired a celebrant ($300), booked a gazebo ($80), suits (well ties, shirts, vests and pants) for the men from bigw and lowes ($200 all up), I got my dress from a cheap outlet ($250), borrowed a veil, shoes for all of us ($80), flower girl dresses from best and less ($30), hair ($50) and I DYI flowers ($100 for all) and make up. I splurged on a photographer/videographer fr $400 for the ceremony only…..all up our wedding was $1500 for everything…afterwards we said if people wants to they could join us for dinner at Sizzler at their own cost.

Honestly, if you say you cant afford it dont wait to be accepted on a show like this. Weddings are not about the money you spend it is about celebrating getting married. And you can do this without spending huges amounts. It should be marrying the man/woman of your dreams that matters, not having a huge wedding.

Our $1500 wedding meant so much to us and we wouldnt change a thing…..and if we ever have the money one day we will do it differently. But for now all that matters is we did it.

You can grab 2 witnesses and get a celebrant or go to a registry office for under $500….trimmings are not essential.

82 Rachel { 11.14.12 at 5:24 pm }

Has a new series been announced yet?

83 Olwyn Noone { 11.17.12 at 4:35 am }

When will ur next series be in the UK please. My fiance had to leave a well paid engineering job due to a stroke and is now a security guard and only earns about £1000 per month. I was a carer, but fell at work in June and have been out of work since, but have now done a course and am also applying to do security, I am 60 and John is 61. We booked our wedding for 27/04/2013, it was to be a Naval type of wedding with cadets as we are both volunteers with the sea cadets. John will wear his Naval uniform, as I could not afford a dress from the shops and have bought one online which is very similar and new for a third of the price. Now I am worried because of finance we will not afford to do this and have our reception as we wanted to. So I am thinking maybe of entering for ur next UK one.

84 Reality Raver { 11.17.12 at 7:56 am }

Rachel – Highly unlikely there will be another series in Australia as it did not rate well.

Olwyn – This is an Australian TV blog, so not sure where the show is up to in the UK. You could ring the station it airs on and ask which company produces it and then contact them is probably your best bet.
