My Big Redneck Wedding is a reality television series airing on CMT. Hosted and narrated by actor and comedian, Tom Arnold, the show debuted Friday, 11 January 2008 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. My Big Redneck Wedding is produced by Pink Sneakers Productions, a production company located in Orlando, Florida.
CMT states: "....After scouring the country to find the most down-home country couples, CMT documents their journey down the aisle, as outrageous and over the top as it might be. Each episode, hosted by Tom Arnold, will feature a different redneck wedding, each with its own rustic eccentricities, whether it is a four-legged best man, a romantic beer can canopy, a celebratory shotgun salute or a reception filled with mattress surfing and mud wrestling."
The show profiles country couples who plan over-the-top, country-western style weddings. The couples proudly celebrate their down-home heritage by getting hitched on horseback, exchanging vows with the help of ordained ex-cons, or hosting mud-wrestling competitions during the reception. Baked beans, roast squirrel, and turkey testicles make for finger-licking meals. Family members and guests contribute to the festive fun by buying unique lingerie for the bride or organizing shotgun salutes.
