i've been watching a lot of TLC lately (or what i like to call, the wedding chanel). 4 wedding, say yes to the dress (all 3), & now i'm watching Vanessa & Nick's wedding. all these shows (especially all the say yes to the dresses b/c they're my favorite shows & I hope to work at the 1 in Atlanta 1 day) make me want to get married just so i can plan & have a wedding (but mostly try on & by a dress). i've been in a relationship off & on for almost 3 yrs (the last... over yr & 1/2 have been great w/ no problems or break ups). i'm only 22, & i don't want to get married before i'm 25, but these shows are killing me. do any of you women out there who aren't married yet ever want to at least just go wedding gown shopping b/c of these shows, or is it only me?
I love looking at the beautiful gowns, but I would never spend anywhere near what these women do on dresses. The other day I watched a bride negotiate a floor sample down
to I think $13K or $14K. To me, that's ludicrous. That's almost a year's rent or mortgage. For that kind of money I could fly halfway around the world, and spend the month wherever I land. Why would I ever spend it on a dress that I would use for ONE DAY? No way.
These shows are nice to watch, or to get ideas if you do your own sewing/catering/weddin g planning, but I wouldn't bother setting foot in Kleinfield Bridal.
