@LadyMoriarty:  I felt the same way watching that! It was totally pressure from her Future Mother-In-Law. She didnt look nearly as happy in her FMIL’s dress as she did in that strapless!

I have NEVER liked any of the transformed “something borrowed” and I always feel so sad for the brides that pick them because of pressure! Then I feel sad for myself for watching.

i actually loved her something borrowed. It’s one of the first borrowed dresses i’ve liked. But i agree, it did seem like she got pressured into it.

I’m wearing a borrowed dress, and doing alterations to it, but they will be minor and the dress will still look like the dress. I think my grandma would be heartbroken if I took her dress to someone to turn into something completely different.

I didnt actually mind her borrowed dress. I dont like the bottom though and the other dress is more flattering.

@LadyMoriarty:  Half of the “something borrowed” dresses have been just awful. They need a new seamstress on that show!

YES, it totally made her look pregnant! Poor girl. And the woman trying to tell her, “Oh, this is so you!” about the something borrowe dress…um, no. I felt so bad for her when her Future Mother-In-Law was saying she wouldn’t be okay if she didn’t pick her dress! Basically whenever I watch this show I’m like, “Yeah, she’s going to pick the something borrowed to not hurt the mom/MIL’s feelings. Which is too bad, because she looks a million times prettier in the new one.” I think there has been only one episode where I really did like the something borrowed when it was done. And I was so happy in last week’s episode where the girl actually realized that if her grandma, whose dress it originally was, were still there she would want her to wear the dress that made her feel beautiful – and she chose the new one.

The main thing I hate about that show is that Kelly isn’t even a good seamstress (if it is in fact her that does the work). Half the time the dresses look absolutely heinous.

I seriously hate this show because I think all the people trying to force the bride to wear their old dresses are so selfish! It would be one thing if she really wanted to, but it almost always seems like the bride is just wanting to please her family. I just want to say to them, “Look lady, you got to pick out your own dress when you wore this 30 years ago, you had your day, now let this poor girl have hers!”

@TwoStatesBride:  Yeah…and as another horrible example, how can ANYONE look at these two dresses and think that the borrowed one looks better??

@LadyMoriarty:  I said the same thing. I loved her FMIL’s dress (or what could have been done with it), but it fit her all wrong. If her Future Mother-In-Law wasn’t pressuring her, it is clear she would have picked the other dress.

ETA: I really wanted to alter my grandmother’s dress (before the show) and I never realized how attached she was to the design. I couldn’t hurt her by changing it. I cannot imagine how pissed she would be if I cut up her dress and then didn’t wear it. I am sure the brides on this show feel totally guilty about that.

@LadyMoriarty:  Oh my God all of Kelly’s dresses are UGLY. I think out of all the episodes I’ve only seen one something borrowed dress that was kind of cute. All the other dresses are just REALLY yellow and weird. Though I`m glad a few brides have chosen the newer dress. And I have yet to see that New episode though.
