This is a well-cast show with only the barest of plots...but it works. The writers have pulled out all the insanity cards and are having entirely too much fun with them. Every time one crisis is averted (or determined to not, really, be a crisis,) another one arises. And the actors seem to throw themselves with unmitigated glee into whatever situation the writers conjure up--from dealing with the obnoxious grandmother to taking down a dragon. It is, however, a warm-hearted show--even though they keep throwing roadblocks into the wedding day, you have no doubt that, in the end, the happy couple will be just that...the happy couple. (Of course, since we haven't gotten to the end of the day yet, I could be wrong...but I'm willing to bet, oh, a box of albino Monarch butterflies that it'll all come together.)
