Tie the Knot Tuesday (Celeb Edition) – Yandy & Mendeecees

Yandy and Mendeecees said “I Do” in a live televised two-hour special.

Last night the wedding of Love and Hip Hop reality television stars Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris aired during a two-hour special courtesy of VH1. The longtime couple are the proud parents of four children (two of whom Mendeecees brought to their relationship) and the lovebirds were sure to include them in their big day. Also present at the nuptials were a plethora of fellow Love and Hip Hop faves including Kandi Burruss, Ray J and R& B songstress K. Michelle who performed during the ceremony.

The bride and groom spared few expenses for the “fairy tale” experience including $90,000 for flowers, a combined $42,000 for wedding bands and a $45,000 watch gifted to Mendeecees by Yandy as a wedding day surprise. (It is pretty safe to discern that the couple were “hooked-up” by many of their vendors in exchange for the press.) The couple didn’t shy away from their relationship challenges in behind-the-scenes footage leading up to the main event. The 120 minute show gave viewers a look inside the not-so rosy relationship between Yandy and her new mother-in-law Judy and the criminal drama Mendeecees is facing — the new husband just plead guilty to drug trafficking charges that can keep him in prison for a minimum of 5 years.

Many of the vendors selected to create Yandy’s dream wedding day are Black Bridal Bliss vets like stationery wiz Kisha Kingston of Royale Amethyst. Here are more Triple B highlights from the Harris Wedding:

  1. The epitome of ghetto fabulous”. Smh. Who spends almost $90,000 on flowers when the groom is about to get locked up? !

  2. Even if he wasn’t about to get locked up, there’s no way in HELL I can see how anyone could justify spending these crazy amounts for a wedding day when they have FOUR kids and want to have more. Add to the scenario dude’s legal troubles and it really just seems insane. What is really perplexing about it all is that in the beginning of the Love & Hip Hop series, Yandy seemed to be pretty level headed and very business savvy. What happened?!

    My people, my people…

    @Sandy – What happened was VH1 was footing the bill. As Bridget alluded to in the post, Yandy and ole boy probably only had to pay for a fraction of this wedding. Do I agree with it? Nope but I still wish them the best as a couple and a family. Hey, if they like it, I love it.

    Keep the comments (good, bad or indifferent) coming, folks!

  5. Overall it was beautiful, but it was another TV reality show. History has proved that any couple who gets married on TV all divorce, because it ends up not being about love and being about money. Shawna said it best, I would not be spending that type of money on my wedding if my husband was going to jail. Where are their priorities! Hopefully they break the curse and their marriage lasts!
