Would you be on say yes to the Dress, if asked

I was at Kleinfelds and  They were filming. I was asked if I would come back to be taped for the show. I said let me get back to you.... would you do it. I am, a bit of a private person and not really in to being on TV. What would you do?

    Also, I'm unsure what you're asking?  Are you asking if we were YOU, given the information you gave us, would we do it?  Or would we personally be okay with it?

    No... I couldnt afford their dresses and would feel l was wasting their time. Plus I would be that girl everyone that is watching is thinking is too picky. When in reality I am just cheap.

    Well I like that show but only because I find the brides hilariously ridiculous. So if you're okay with me making fun of you - go for it!

    Why did they ask you to be on it? I thought you had to apply. This makes me think either you're really hot or really crazy.

    Yeah, I don't think you even get paid for being on SYTTD.

    I got my dress at Kleinfelds and I was talking to my consultant Debbie and she said being on the show is a big PITA and you might not get great service with all of the distractions, so I wouldn't do it.

    Thanks! It was in Weehawken (Hamilton Park).  There are a few more in my bio, but that's only a quarter of the ones she took.  Our photographer  is Jessica Urzua of Jessica Lauren Photography.

    Thats really funny we were just there the other day for my nephew's birthday pics. My sister lives on BLVD east. FI lives in Boken so was wondering if it was either along Frank Sinatra Drive or in the Hawk :)  I am going to have to look her up we are looking for a photographer, I am sure she  will not travel as far away as our wedding is, for our wedding but engagement pics  would be fun! thanks for the info.

    Bwhahah. Okay, you win.  But she would totally do e-pics :P.

    I wouldn't do it for 2 reasons. One, they hardly ever have "plus" size girls on the actual SYTTD. That is why they ended up making a plus show. And the second is I'd never be able to afford paying over $1000 for a dress.

    When I was looking at dresses I had a fit trying to get it in my head that I wasn't getting one under $500. AH. I hate dresses but I like wedding dresses so it's a iffy situation.

    I've never seen a bride (or her family) on that show who didn't reinforce every BSC "IT'S MY DAYYY!" bride stereotype out there.

    OK this would be another reason. When I was planning-- I wasn't all caught up in it like a lot of brides are. Maybe I knew it wasn't ment to be. I don't know but I can't see myself being all BSC about it neither.

    I wouldn't be on the show.  I went to Kleinfeld and had an okay experience, but I liked other shops better.  I ended up getting my dress at Bridal Reflections.

    S2G, I also don't like how they talk trash about the clients.

    If I lived near NYC, and had that amount of $$ to spend on a dress ... no, I'd go to the Pronovias flagship store instead and get something really unique.

    Claudia is the brunette with a bit of an accent?  And she argues about her own awesomeness during her evaluation?  I just watched the episode the other day where she DOES get fired.
  • Options
    Yes, that's her!!  I haven't seen that one, but I have a ton on Tivo so maybe it will come up soon.  Her story was so compelling to me.  The managers seemed to really want to help her, but she was so clueless and thought everyone else was the problem other than her.

    I really wanted Keasha as my consultant, but she wasn't working the day I went.

    No, I wouldn't. Well, I would never shop there in the first place even if I had the money.

    I liked Claudia! She was from Romania.

    [QUOTE]I am watching SYTTD re-reuns right now.  I can't help it.  I love this show.  Does anyone remember the consultant Claudia?  I assume she eventually got fired because every episode was about how she was struggling as a sales lady.  She was so delusional about her own skills, but I really rooted for her.
    Posted by TheCranberry[/QUOTE]

    I watch this show like its my job. I DVR it and keep 3 episodes and everyday when I come home ot make dinner I watch it.

    I dont actually mind the show. I think some brides are ok and that they pick out nice stuff.
    But I HATE when they say stuff like someone else mentioned "WELL a ballgown at 4,000?? I DOUBT we can do that" and it also irks me when they had a whole show about brides that come in to "play dress up" and how wearing it is on the consultant. And I keep thinking to myself -- well maybe they want to try a few places it is a BIG decision. Or when the seamstress argues with the customers.

    And YES I remember Claudia. and she was like "i am going to be a designer or a buyer for some big company!!" remember that? and she goes "maybe thats what they don't want to hear since I've only been here 6 months" and she kept saying she wasnt making sales and it was the other consultants faults--or the brides.

    she was a real piece of work. she was super delusional and then she ripped the dress on a girl and goes "dont tell anyone" to the girl-- and I thought to myself "EXCEPT there is a CAMERA man there"

    I wouldn't ever be on the show- just because I dont love how I look/sound on camera, and that sounds like a nightmare come true..
    Oh and because WHY can't I go through the racks and look- what if an amazing dress I love, you don't grab it out of that glorious stock room.
    I am so indecisive I would need to try on all 1600 dresses.
