Say Yes to the Dress

Do you watch TLC's Say Yes to the Dress? I sheepishly admit it's on my tivo/PVR line up. I love looking at all the dress candy, but I also find the business side of the wedding gown industry very interesting. Until I watched Say Yes To Dress I used to think it would be so fun to go into a 'high end' bridal store and try on a zillion dresses. Now I realize that might not be the nicest thing to do since I would be taking up some poor sales lady's time who's merely try to make a living. (Don't worry, I haven't gone soft on ya, I don't sympathize with the wedding industry that much.) Anyways, Kleinfeld, the 'star' of Say Yes to the Dress is having one of its famed sample sales tomorrow. As seen in previous Say Yes to the Dress episodes, brides line up as early as 9AM for the 3PM sale. Have you lined up for a sample sale? Would you line up for the Kleinfeld's sale?

I would totally watch that show if I could. But, alas, I cannot. :(

I have a love/hate relationship with that show. It honestly messes with my head by the end of an episode! All of the sudden they have me thinking "oh...3k isn't TOO bad for a dress, I can totally do that. I mean, c'mon, that girl spend 5k!"

But yes. I watch it too *shh don't tell*. If I had a few willing supporters to accompany me to a sample sale, I would totally do it. I would just need the moral support to paw through the craziness!

@ Mo - I know what you mean. Who are these girls who can come in there with a 5-10K budget! And when a girl comes in with a 2K budget, the sales ladies are always 'there's not a lot of options.'Hello? 2K is a lot!
