- Wedding: August 2014
SO on Tuesday as some of you know I was filmed for Say Yes to the Dress. I had to come write a bloggish story for you guys and well for me to keep as well as a memory.
I had SUCH a blast!!! I feel so lucky to have been able to have such a wonderful experience and have ti be filmed!
So first off the night before I was crabby as all hell(maybe it was nerves), and the morning of I was a in a better mood but OH SO NERVOUS!!! I got all dressed and began to feel like I overdid my look a bit. However, everyone said to be ME and this was me- gawdy, sparkly and in heels and a mini dress. Oh boy…
Mom n I went for a quick bite and then off to Kleinfeld’s. We got there before my bridesmaids. I was shaking with nerves. We met the crew who were oh so friendly and super laid back. They put us at ease. Then my cousin got there and we got mic’d up. My mom totally embarrassed my cousin when the guy was micing her by telling him that she was single and asked if he knew anyone. (this was as he was basically IN her tits trying to pin a mic to her. She was mortified!! So then I went off to my first interview where I sat in the hot seat and answered many questionsa bout myself, my dream dress, what I do and about my man of course! It made me remember what I love about it when I was talking about him. The girl asking the questions was oh so sweet and helped me with how I should begin my answers and didn’t mind when I got flustered or wanted to start over.
I finished my interview and came out to see my other bridesmaid had gotten there (she was stuck in major traffic earlier). SO I felt that much better now to see she made it. We then got to go into the main room and meet our consultant who was Camille. It was funny because when I thought about it the day before I was hoping for someone else because I felt I would be intimidated by her for some reason but she ended up being my consultant and OMG SO GLAD!!! She was SO awesome!!!! We spoke away from cameras at times and she felt for me and my frustration in my dress search, she gave me advise and was just overall TOTALLY WONDERFUL!!!
I didn’t get to meet Randy since he wasn’t there and I was somewhat disappointed he wasn’t there because he is my favorite. (SIde note, I met him at an event 2 days later and got pictures with him!)
So overall Kleinfeld’s, the employees, the TLC camera crew were all wonderful. Oh and did I mention the moment I walked into Kleinfeld’s??? HOLY INTIMIDATION!!! The place is huge and gorgeous!!! Waaay high ceilings and huge glass doors, large floral trees at the entrance. Just stunning, it was so beautiful. I knew it would be nice but really it was like stepping into bridal heaven or a bridal fairy tale! So this was my experience.
Then of course there’s the negative of the day that I never would have expected… my MOH(who is basically my sister. My closest friend sicne we are 3 years old) who knew for months I was trying to get on and was super excited for us all getting on, lost her job (or rather she gave them her notice) ended up taking a job interview for 2 hours before the appointment (in another state) which she took the night before. SO already I was upset but felt like I have no right because of course she needs a job however, my FH, my mom, my BM’s all were saying she could have taken it earlier or the next day. She’s been out of work like 3 days at this point. So the day of she txts me saying they’re running late but she will be there on time (which is impossible). She then txts my mom an hour after the time we had to be there saying the next bus she can catch would be there in 5 minutes. She txts again 30 minutes later saying she was getting on the next bus (so I guess she missed the bus while she was standing there?), THEN almost THREE hours AFTER she was supposed to be there (mind u she has an hour n a half ride to get to us and she does this ride everyday so she is aware of that), she txts saying she is STILL in NJ (we are in NYC) and should she still come? .. we didn’t respond because we were filming. I am LIVID. I always let stuff slide with her but I am not even talking to her right now. Can’t let her think everything is perfectly fine and that I’m not upset with her. I hate hiding my feelings all the time. So we’ll see how long til she realizes we are all upset with her (Yes my BM’s and mom don’t understand what happen after her 1st txt).
Anyway, it WAS an AWESOME time and experience and I am so thankful I got to have it. I do hate that I did spend the whole time there wondering where my BFF/MOH was- as did the producer which also made me feel bad. BUT can’t wait til it airs.. hopefully before the end of the year.
