@jackie-o UGH, that girl’s mom was just awful. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t have just bought the dress she loved and called it a day.

I watched! And I so far have followed all of the rules! Just gotta make it another year without looking at other dresses lol.

And I agree, that appointment was just awful. The mother was insanely rude!

I saw that episode, and I loved the rules.

I agree, that mom was horrible. The girl really wanted to get the dress, but her mom had issues. I was thinking that they probably didn’t have the dress from the other store and the mom was trying to get a better deal by saying they did.

That whole family (the girl and mom with the dress already) was just REALLY off to me. The girl was acting like a pre-teen and the mom was just RUDE..and dumb. How can Kleinfeld’s price match if you don’t give them the price?

I didn’t follow all the rules. The first time I went shopping, I tried on dresses way outside my budget, because I thought I was just going to “look” and get a feel for what I want. And I still know that that one dress was THE dress (sighs). 

Although, I always kept my crowd small. The most people I brought was three, and they were two super close friends and my fiance’s sister. Then the other times I went, it was with my mom and my sister. 

hahaha that’s so funny, people seriously don’t wear underwear ick!! Although this one time I went, I wore ruffly underwear and all the dress zippers got stuck in my underwear hahaha. the consultant teased me 😉

I made sure that I didn’t bring a large group. I only wanted to bring my Mama, my cousins and aunts were mad, but oh well. My family is very opinionated and I didn’t want them to try to run my shopping experience. I thought my search for the perfect dress would be longer, but I never tried on other dresses once I decided on THE dress.

I watched it with my fiance and he was “disappointed” they didn’t have a clip for rule number 5. Since they had one for every other rule…although most were of the same bride.

Although, my fiance would like to add a 6th rule..Don’t go shopping until you’re engaged.

I followed most of Randy’s rules. My party was small (just my fiance), I stayed in my budget, I was honest with my consultant, and I did wear underwear. But I did shop again after buying my first dress. We had a major venue chance and no longer was compromising on the princess dress that my dad wanted me to find. (so I feel that”s an excpetion) Still didn’t spend over $500 between the two dresses (my internal budget)

But yes that bride who had found the dress at the other store was just wrong. We both felt bad for Keasha.

I haven’t found my dress yet, but I definitely keep trying on dresses outside of my budget. Though my reason is that when I finally find one that I love, I want to get it used so that I have a chance at getting it in my budget. It might not be the smartest idea but I’ll let you know if it bites me in the butt. Tongue out

In defense of that girl and her mom- it sounded like they planned a trip to NY and had appointments at a couple shops, but they really thought they would get the dress at Klienfelds.  Klienfelds charges you a fee if you cancel your appointment without a certian amount of notice, so the store’s own policy was probably what made them say “Well, let’s still keep the other appointment and see if we find something better.”

I also know exactly why she didn’t tell them the price.  Say the price at the other store was $2000.  If she tells Klienfelds that, they’ll come back and say “we can do it for $1950.” When really, they maybe could have gone as low at $1800 or $1700.  Making a purchase that big really is a business decision, and as much as I like the consultants, I don’t mind it when people stand their ground concerning money.

But yeah, I agree with all those rules, except I would change #3 to “once you buy the dress…”.  But then, I was never a person who LOVED my dress, so I kept looking, and then when I had gone through all the stores in my town I was like “well, I guess I’ll just go back and get that one…”

…My favorite part about Crazy Bride and Mom was that the daughter said something along the lines of Ive never known my mother to price comparison shop before. Thats not like her.
