Say Yes to the Dress


I don't normally like to plug things but this caught my eye, and it's TLC which I can kind of be a junkie for, starting on Friday at 10 is 'Say Yes to the Dress'. The show will take 13 weeks to follow three different brides as they plan and plot their way to Kleinfeld's Bridal store in NYC to find that perfect dress. Will they have success? Well I guess we have to watch to find out. My DVR is set!

I did a bit more research on the show to find out how can it take 13 weeks of a show to find a dress in one store. I mean really. Two weekends in one store is all I'm giving a bride before I deem them on the road to Bridezillahood. Yet the show is promising a docu-soap look at behind the scenes of the store and how they go from helping a bride choose the dress of her dreams and one that looks good on her to fittings, alterations, and more. I love this stuff! Plus you get background on the brides and their own stories. Fascinating television? Maybe only to us but I'm game.

Who is with me?

I'd totally watch that, but I have sucky cable.

As for 13 weeks=zilla....umm....I went to about 10 stores before I found my dress. However, I went to several of them by myself. I had an idea of what I wanted, and I just couldn't find it.

10 stores is fine- it's the 13 weeks in one store that has me thinking that is a bit extreme.

I used to work with Elise. She was the store manager at David's Bridal. I worked there as a bridal consultant back in 1997-1998. Elise was very sweet and I liked her alot. When she's working she comes across very business like, but she's really a nice person.
I really like this show, it's fun to watch the brides trying gowns for their big day, and watching the consultants brings back alot of nice memories from my David's Bridal days.

I'm a sucker for dresses. I watch purely to see the beautiful gowns and how styles are changing.
