    Meh… the big intrusive crew on the wedding day would turn me off it. Unless it was like I was getting pro video of my entire ceremony free from it, I don’t think I would be interested. And the one person I know who has ever been on any kind of “reality tv” kind of thing got everything so crazy edited it was nothing like what was actually filmed.  Don’t know how much they could do that for a wedding dress fitting and ceremony but it would make me wary.

    elw728:  No way, but I am so shy with that sort of thing! If it fits your personality, I say go for it! I just wouldn’t want to sit through filming, be on TV, or have a bunch of intrusive cameras there at my wedding.

    elw728:  i love watching the show!

    so if i had the money to fly out and buy a dress there – i would totally do it. 

    I wouldnt mind being there for a few hours of filming, but i would inquire as to how intrusive they will be on the day of. They usually only show 1 bride at the end of the episode so is it guaranteed if you agree that they will come to your wedding?

    As long as they werent in the way and blocking the view of the guests on the day, i would be up for it!

    I had to think about this one… and everything led me to “No way would I ever do that.” My wedding is supposed to be intimate, and that would be taken away from me.  My SO would likely hate it.  I also wouldn’t want to deal with any extra details on my wedding day – no added stresses!  I wouldn’t like to talk about my wedding day and think of the camera crew being there as the highlight of it.  It’s about me and him.

    I would think about doing the fitting part since that’s pretty minimal, but definitely NOT the wedding day! I wouldn’t want the addes stress of having all that hoopla on my wedding day.

    I would be very suspicious. If you didn’t apply for the show, how do the producers even know you exist? Did you give the dress shop your permission to share your contact information?

    I would get more information. Are they going to be like videographers and give you a copy of the whole wedding? If they did something like that I would probably do it, but I would have a huge list of questions to make sure there are parameters. I’ve never seen them edit a wedding on the show to make anyone look bad, just the opposite I would think. They want to make the store look like their dress helped make the day perfect.

    elw728:  I don’t know how they can portray you as a complete biotch for that though. It’s not like it’s an entire show, or an episode even. Most of that stuff is like 5 minutes at the end, if that.

    I wouldn’t do it mostly because I wouldn’t want them there on my wedding day.  I’ve hired a photographer and videographer, and I would be worried the SYTTD people would get in their way.  I do love the show, though. I completely understand why you would consider doing it!

    I am an attention whore and would LOVE to have my dress filmed, Id enjoy the fitting part more than the actual dress shopping part because its so stressful picking out your dress. Id also love the cliip of the wedding….<br /><br />I can totally understand why people wouldnt want to though.

    My wedding day was special for me and my family. I wouldn’t ruin it by bringing tv crew in.
