Jeff Lewis, Wedding Planner

Episode 2: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks Andrew should be a professional bridesmaid dress model.

Jenni decides that Jeff should come help her plan the wedding. Clearly Jenni was in a love-infused haze, because there's just no way that would turn out well. So let's take a look at Jeff's adventures in wedding planning and see if Jenni came to regret her decision.

Stop No. 1 - The National Hellenic Museum

Jenni, Jeff, and Andrew find themselves at the venue for the rehearsal dinner. Basically it's like a giant Ancient Greek play land full of Trojan horses and artifacts. There's also a chest of authentic Greek garb -- togas, the works. This of course led to the team trying it all on, the best fashion moment being Andrew's (a recurring theme in this episode).



Safe to say they've found the perfect place for the playful Ms. Pulos.Stop No. 2 - The Wedding Venue/Menu Tasting

Jenni is not having a small wedding. So you're thinking, OK, maybe 200-300 people? Nope! The space fits approximately 650 guests. Yikes! Jenni's not kidding when she said the Greeks go big.

So after Jeff freaks out about how much space there is to fill, they move on to do a tasting of potential items for Jenni's menu. Here's where there seems to be a sudden shift. Jeff keeps talking about how it's his wedding and overrules Jenni's choices. We're crossed into Bridezilla mode (and Jeff isn't even the bride).

And of course Jeff manages to make an inappropriate penis joke about the lamb balls. (I must confess, I did think it was pretty funny though. They really just walked right into it!) I think Jenni was considering reaching across the table and taping Jeff's mouth shut, since she probably doesn't need Jonathan to hear about Jeff's stick and balls.

Oh and meanwhile, back at Casa Lewis...

Stop No. 3 - Bridesmaid Dresses

Clearly it was unnecessary to have Jonathan's sister there to model the bridesmaid dresses -- Andrew had this on lock! He jumped right into a dress (he's a seven), threw on some heels, and WERKED IT. Jeff and Jenni were a little put off by the ease and effortlessness with which he was able to do this (Jenni was convinced he's rocked a short dress before), but there was no denying he made that sea-foam mini look good. I'm just hoping there might be room for one more bridesmaid in the wedding party...

Stop No. 4 - Lunch Break

You knew it was coming. Lurking beneath the surface of all this wedding stuff, you could tell Jeff had something to say about the whole production. As soon as that pizza hit the table, Jeff let it all out. The wedding is too big, the wedding is too expensive, she needs to save her money, etc. etc. It seems Jeff forgot the most important wedding planner rule -- never disagree with the bride. It could end badly.

But Jenni took it all in and simply let Jeff know that she was going to have the wedding she wants. End of story. So kudos to Jenni for standing her bridal ground.
Next week Andrew finally experiences Jeff's wrath, and it's not pretty.
