What Is It About This Show?

I have an obsession with a tv show that has even ME puzzled!

I am totally in love with Say Yes to the Dress that comes on the TLC channel. I am not a girly girl by any means, so what is my fascination with these dresses?

I think my secret obsession with this is show is because way down deep, I wish I would have had a big wedding with a gown and the works. I purchased a beautiful wedding gown when I was 17 years old from a consignment shop for $150. It was the most I had ever spent on any piece of clothing. It hung in the back of my closet and one day I was hoping to wear it. That day never came because I got married at the courthouse and wound up leaving my dress at my mom's house when I moved out early.

When I watch this show, I dream that this is me trying on these gorgeous gowns (not that I would buy one because they are WAY to expensive), but to just try one on. I would love to walk down the aisle with my daddy. He never got to really give me away. I think he was disappointed way back when I got married because he had always told me how he looked forward to that day.

I want to dance that first dance with my husband (and when I say first dance girls--I am serious! We have been married for 16 years, been together for 18 and have NEVER danced once.)

So what would your perfect wedding look like? My daughter loves the video of the crazy wedding dancers coming down the aisle. That is how she wants to be married. Me? Wow...I think this is how I would do it:

Wedding song for walking down the aisle: The Closer I Get by Roberta Flack--this song is one I used to listen to a lot when we were dating. It just says everything about how I fell in love with my man.

Vows: I want to write my own vows most definitely

Colors: yellow. I love yellow roses--I always have. I can picture my bouquet filled to the brim with yellow and white roses with sprays of baby's breath (brings back memories).

The First Dance: Endless Love by Dianna Ross and Lionel Richie

Dance with Daddy: This one is a no brainer--Daddy's Hands by Holly Dunn. My all time favorite that I sing to my daddy all the time.

My Dress: Okay, so I know I will probably never get this dress, but I love this one. It has been my favorite on the show:

I love this one because it is me--simple, but so elegant. No poofy ruffles and tons of layers, but just something that says "Look at me. Today I am beautiful."

What about you? What does your dream wedding look like?

I love that show too. Number one I love weddings!
I think with each dress the girls try on, I am looking to see if it might be a style that my daughter would pick ... someday.
And the other reason is this... I enjoy observing people's behavior and analyzing it. And as you know, there have been some real characters on that show, so I have a heyday!

I too love the show!!!Thanks for sharing your story. I had a nice size wedding and I had my dress put away for my girls to wear if they would like. Our song is "It's your Love".
