Good morning everyone,
As many of you know one of the Belles, DeShae tied the knot this weekend! Of course, the wedding so fabulous and we will get to that soon, but today’s post is all about this beautiful bride finding her dream gown! DeShae was featured on TLC’s show Say Yes to the Dress, and her episode aired on the season finale apply titled “Bling it on!”
Read on to find out more about DeShae’s big spot light moment!!
Now that my “Say Yes To The Dress” filming experience has ended, it has finally sunk in that it actually even happened at all! I still have to pinch myself when I think about how crazy it is that it happened to little ole me! Being the girly, frilly, wedding dress dreamer that I am, I always dreamed of going to Kleinfeld for my dress. When I applied for the show, I never even told too many people because I didn’t think it would ever happen. My own MOTHER didn’t even know! (Sorry mom, lol) But, apparently the wedding dress gods had bigger plans for me! My expectations were very VERY high of what my experience would be like at Kleinfeld. They exceeded it. It was like no other place on Earth. It was like floating on a cloud, in a dream, surrounded by the most amazing staff, dresses, atmosphere, and customer service. (cheesy and cliche, I know!)
Walking into the front doors of the store, you can see why Kleinfeld has been the BEST of the BEST for the past 60 years. They have mastered what they do. The best day of my life will be the day I get to marry my best friend. The second best day was the day he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. The third best day was the day I became a Kleinfeld Bride. Here’s my journey:
Our group arrived at Kleinfeld around 1:30EST. We checked in with the receptionist who was INTRIGUED by what we call our “Lagniappe”! We literally brought Louisiana to New York! We brought all of the workers Mardi Gras beads and introduced them to the “second line” tradition! Thanks to our close friends, Belinda and Krissi Yoder, for letting me borrow your “bridal” umbrella! It made a super special day even that much better! Every consultant that came through the waiting room came over to talk to us, greet us, ask about our umbrellas and beads, and were THRILLED to wear their own piece of Mardi Gras around their neck! Keasha came through and loved my umbrella so we took a quick picture. She is just as fabulous is person as she is on TV.
As nervous as I was, the laid-back nature of the film crew and staff helped calm all MOST of my nerves! They wanted everyone to be as natural and comfortable as possible. Everything you see on the show is exactly the way it is. I always thought that SURELY the producers, someone, makes these people act a fool. Nope. That’s just them! They literally told me that they did not want me to choose a dress JUST because I was filming for the show. If there was anything anyone could do, they would do. Everyone bent over backwards to make my experience an amazing one. I tried to take in as much of the experience as possible and as I looked around, everyone was being treated this way:
Doesn’t she look lovely, folks?? More of DeShae’s amazing Southern Bridals will be featured in a later post, so stay tuned!
That’s all for the day. Don’t forget to contact the Two Belles for all your event planning dreams! Southern Flare. Any Budget.
