I went dress shopping several times and with different people, but there was one situation that definitely reminded me of a syttd episode. I have been trying desperately to involve my younger sister in wedding planning, but she she has been away in college throughout most of the planning and when she was home she would rather hang out with her friends than get involved in wedding stuff. One weekend when she was home I dragged her to David’s bridal to try on a dress I saw online; I had already ordered a dress but was having serious doubts. It was very obvious how much I wanted her to get excited about her big sister being a bride, yet everytime I would come out she was either on the phone or looking at dresses for herself. I think that would make the perfect episode of the bride looking for some attention from the family. LOL

I still love that show and watch it whenever I’m home – sadly, they haven’t brought it to the US yet 🙁
I probably would have been on the show where the bride’s voice gets drowned out by everyone else’s opinion. My mom and my sister were very vocal in their opinions and they didn’t really like anything I liked. I tried on a lace dress – didn’t love that particular dress but LOVED the idea of having a lace dress and that was immediately vetoed by them both. I ended up with a dress I liked at the time but looking at the photos now, I have serious, serious dress regret. Ah well. I can just hear Keisha now saying “It’s not about them, we have to get the bride what she wants!”

I’m an event planner, so they’d probably make me seem dramatic.

I think I already said this, but I’d be “the Canadian”, which I’m always sad to see they make such a big deal of,
or I would be the picky bride with the printout of the dress they said they had, but didn’t after all because of a mix-up… but it all turned out OK in the end.

I’d either be in sob story or the “I’m open to everything” annoying person. Or even pushy MIL’s. lol

Hahaha! I love this post!!! I would have qualified in SO many categegories, including the older bride; the “plus size” bride, who would have had trouble getting into the regular, sample gowns; the extremely picky bride; and the bride who would have had to try on her dream gown, even if it was outrageously expensive, just to make sure it wasn’t worth going over budget, etc. Also, since my mom had broken a bone and wasn’t able to travel (and she didn’t ever get to go dress shopping with me, as I lived in a different state), I would also likely have been a bride who had trouble making a decision “because her mother isn’t here…”

LOL, that is a much more snappy way of saying what I did! Nicely done hehe

I would have been the bride with severe body issues who had trouble feeling good about a dress because she wasn’t comfortable with herself (and probably left the store empty-handed).
I could also have been the bride who knew exactly what kind of dress she wanted and more or less refused to try on anything very different from that. They could tell me all they wanted that “so many women end up buying the complete opposite of what they pictured,” but I knew what worked for me, and in the end, that’s what I got.

I would definitely be the bride who tried on 100 dresses, because I totally did. I made an appointment at Kleinfeld’s as a last resort, but found my dress just before my appointment.

I would be the one that crys because her mom didnt want to go dress shopping… And loves everything but picks it apart and cant choose.

Is there an “awkward/not-girly/never into wedding-stuff and has no clue” type?
Because that’s totally what FI’s mom would try to sell me as if she actually submits my info to these shows.
(The only wedding show I watch is Bridezillas… it’s addicting 🙁 )

I am that person with the giant group of people with me (9 other people!) but not the crazy kind that take over the whole store.
