Kandi’s Wedding is a reality TV series that ran on the Bravo TV network in 2014. The series is a spin-off from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The series follows Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker as they plan a themed wedding ceremony ripped from the grand wedding scene in Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America. The two decide to do the work themselves, without the help of a wedding planner and they give themselves just five weeks to make it happen.
Family drama adds to the stress, as Kandi’s mom, the outspoken and often obnoxious Mama Joyce, is still opposed to the wedding. Mama Joyce refers to Todd as an “opportunist”. In addition, Todd isn’t sure whether he should sign a prenup and refuses to do so until the day before the wedding.
