I JUST WANT TO WISH EVERYONE A VERY, VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY.

WE SEE QUITE A FEW BRIDES WHO COME IN WHO WANT

THIS KIND OF WINTER-WONDERLAND THEMED WEDDING.

BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE WINTER HOLIDAYS

WHERE FAMILIES COME TOGETHER,

AND YOU HAVE WEDDINGS WHERE FAMILIES COME TOGETHER.

SO THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR.

THERE'S TWO SPECIFIC BRIDES THAT ARE COMING IN TODAY.

ONE IS PAULA'S BRIDE, AND HER NAME IS KATIE.

AND KATIE IS RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY, PAULA.

SHE WANTS A WINTER FANTASY PRINCESS KIND OF A WEDDING.

AND, DEBBIE, YOU HAVE STEPHANIE.

SHE'S COMING WITH QUITE A FESTIVE GROUP,

SO WE'RE GONNA MAKE SURE WE GIVE THEM A REALLY FUN APPOINTMENT.

Stephanie: MY NAME IS STEPHANIE,

AND I'M HERE TO FIND MY DREAM DRESS.

HI, STEPHANIE. HOW ARE YOU?

HI. NICE TO MEET YOU.

I'M DEBBIE. WELCOME TO KLEINFELD.

THANK YOU.

AND CONGRATULATIONS.

WOW. WHAT'S ALL THIS?

WE'RE THE JINGLE BELL CREW.

I HAVE MY MOM WITH ME, MY SISTER,

MY AUNT, AND MY GRANDMOTHER.

TELL ME ABOUT THE BELLS.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GONNA USE TO VOTE.

WHEN IS THE WEDDING?

IT'S BLACK FRIDAY, THE KICKOFF TO CHRISTMAS.

OH, YES. YES. YES.

I WANT IT TO BE THE JUMP START OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

SO YOU REALLY WANT A BIG HOLIDAY THEME?

RIGHT.

I SEE PINE CONES AND SNOW-COVERED BRANCHES

AND LITTLE DETAILS LIKE THAT TO BRING IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.

SOMETHING THAT'S JUST TIMELESS.

OKAY. AND HOW DO YOU PICTURE --

THAT'S WHAT SHE LIKES. I, ON THE OTHER HAND...

MY MOM, SHE MAY BE OPINIONATED AND THINK SHE'S ALWAYS RIGHT.

I LIKE THAT FULL, PRINCESSY LOOK,

AND SHE'S LIKE, "YEAH, NO."

EVERY MOTHER WANTS TO SEE THEIR DAUGHTER IN A PRINCESS DRESS.

Stephanie: MY MOM'S OPINION DOES MATTER TO ME.

I WOULDN'T BE HAPPY IF SHE WASN'T HAPPY.

WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE PRICEWISE?

$5,000.

OKAY. COME ON.

FOLLOW ME.

ALL RIGHT.

Debbie: WHEN A BRIDE SAYS

THAT THEY WANT THE WINTER WONDERLAND THEME,

I THINK OF MAYBE SOME CRYSTAL BEADING

OR SOMETHING SPARKLY, SOMETHING THAT JUST MAKES IT

A LITTLE BIT MORE IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

YOU CAN TAKE A SEAT RIGHT THERE.

HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR FIANCé?

Stephanie: MY FIANCé'S NAME IS ADAM.

WE MET FIVE YEARS AGO AT A FRIEND'S PARTY.

WE TALKED ALL NIGHT,

AND WE'VE KIND OF BEEN TOGETHER EVER SINCE THAT DAY.

MY WEDDING, IT'S GONNA BE IN DELRAN, NEW JERSEY.

I WOULD LIKE MY DRESS

TO GO ALONG WITH THE THEME OF THE WEDDING,

SAME WINTER-WONDERLAND TYPE FEEL TO IT.

SO, WE WANT SOMETHING THAT'S FITTED,

BUT WE WANT SOMETHING THAT HAS EMBELLISHMENT ON IT.

GIVE ME A COUPLE MINUTES.

I'M GONNA GO OUT AND DO SOME SHOPPING.

Narrator: WITH STEPHANIE'S WINTER DRESS REQUEST IN MIND,

DEBBIE'S OFF TO FIND HER OWN SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER.

THE PERFECT PERSON I WANTED TO SEE.

WHAT YOU NEED?

SO, BRIDE'S NAME IS STEPHANIE.

SHE'S GETTING MARRIED

DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON, DURING CHRISTMAS.

THEY HAVE BELLS WITH THEM.

THEY'RE BRINGING, LIKE, CHRISTMAS BELLS.

WE'RE GONNA KNOW IF THEY LIKE IT OR THEY DON'T LIKE IT.

THE FESTIVE SEASON.

HI.

HI.

I HEARD BELL RINGING FROM ACROSS THE SALON.

THAT'S US.

THAT WAS YOUR ENTOURAGE?

YEP.

Narrator: AS THE JINGLE BELL CREW GETS READY,

DEBBIE SLIPS STEPHANIE INTO DRESS ONE.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE SHAPE?

I LIKE THE SHAPE.

ME TOO.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR FAMILY'S GONNA THINK ABOUT THIS ONE?

I DON'T KNOW IF MY MOM WILL. I'M SURE SHE'LL LIKE IT.

OKAY.

BUT SHE'S EXPECTING THE -- FFT!

LET'S GO SHOW THEM.

OKAY.

Stephanie: WHEN I SEE THIS DRESS,

I'M THINKING THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I ASKED FOR.

I LIKE THAT IT'S MORE FITTED

AND THEN FLARES IN AT THE BOTTOM.

AND I LIKE THAT IT'S LACE.

AND IT'S A SUBTLE SPARKLE.

IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING THAT I SAID.

I DIDN'T HEAR ANY BELLS RINGING.

NO, I DIDN'T HEAR ANY BELLS EITHER.

[ BELLS JINGLING ]

THAT'S A LOW BELL. THAT'S A HIGH BELL.

AND THAT'S LIKE AN IN-BETWEEN BELL.

THEY'RE IN THE MIDDLE FOR ME.

THE DRESS THAT SHE HAS ON RIGHT NOW IS WHAT I THINK SHE WANTS.

BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HER IN A PRINCESS DRESS.

I'M STILL LOOKING FOR THAT...

WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO PUT A BALL GOWN ON FOR MOM.

I'M KIND OF GETTING A LITTLE BIT NERVOUS.

I HOPE THAT THESE JINGLE BELLS DON'T PRESENT A PROBLEM.

Narrator: AS STEPHANIE PREPARES FOR DRESS TWO,

VETERAN CONSULTANT PAULA IS READY TO USE HER EXPERTISE

TO FIND THE PERFECT GOWN FOR HER WINTER BRIDE.

Paula: MY NAME IS PAULA.

I STARTED WORKING FOR KLEINFELD'S TWO YEARS AGO.

THIS IS SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB.

I GET TO WORK WITH BRIDES ALL DAY LONG.

IT'S REALLY A PRIVILEGE TO BE A PART OF THEIR LIFE.

I'M KATIE. I'M HERE FOR MY APPOINTMENT TODAY.

Katie: MY NAME IS KATIE HARTIN,

AND I'M HERE TO LOOK FOR MY BRIDAL GOWN.

HI. I'M PAULA. SO NICE TO MEET YOU.

WHO DO YOU HAVE WITH YOU TODAY?

TODAY I BROUGHT WITH ME MY MOM AND MY DAD, MY SISTER,

MY BEST FRIEND, MEGAN, MY FIANCé'S NIECE TIFFANY,

AND MY FAMILY FRIEND CAMILLE.

SO, KATIE, WHEN IS YOUR WEDDING?

MY WEDDING IS JANUARY 4, 2014,

AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE A WINTER WONDERLAND THEME.

I'M HOPING TODAY I CAN TRY ON A FUR SHAWL,

MAYBE SNOWFLAKES ON IT WHEREVER THERE MAY BE BEADING.

I'M JUST LOOKING TO LOOK LIKE A WINTER PRINCESS.

SO, PRICE POINT?

ABOUT $2,000.

I AM A BARGAIN HUNTER.

I LOVE TO FEEL LIKE I STOLE SOMETHING FROM THE STORE.

WE'RE GONNA GO AND TRY ON SOME DRESSES.

GOOD LUCK.

GOOD LUCK. YAY!

WHEN I THINK OF WHAT KATIE WANTS TO LOOK LIKE,

I THINK OF A BIG BALL GOWN WITH LOTS OF SPARKLE.

COME ON IN AND SIT DOWN.

SO, KATIE, TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR FIANCé.

Katie: MY FIANCé'S NAME IS LARRY.

WE ACTUALLY MET BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL,

SO I'VE KNOWN HIM FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS.

HE'S LIKE MY PRINCE CHARMING,

AND I'M SO EXCITED JUST TO BE WITH HIM FOREVER.

Katie: WE'RE JUST REALLY HOPING

FOR SPARKLE THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE NIGHT.

WE WANT IT TO BE LIKE A FAIRY TALE.

I'M GONNA GO GET YOU SOME DRESSES,

AND THEN THE FUN WILL REALLY BEGIN.

Narrator: WITH A BRIDE DREAMING OF CHRISTMAS,

PAULA ENLISTS RANDY.

I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE.

OKAY. GREAT.

SHE WANTS A WINTER-WONDERLAND THEMED WEDDING.

THIS IS THE PERFECT BRIDE FOR PAULA,

BECAUSE PAULA IS LIKE SUGAR AND SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE

AND THE HOLIDAYS ALL WARMED UP IN A CUDDLY BLANKET.

WHAT ABOUT THIS GOWN?

AH.

THIS, TO ME, SPEAKS CINDERELLA.

I THINK THIS IS A WINNER.

WELL, HELLO, PRINCESS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

THIS ONE IS PROBABLY MORE OF MY STYLE.

I LIKE THE BEADED TOP.

OH, GOOD.

Narrator: PAULA HOPES THE FIRST GOWN

WILL PUT KATIE IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

DOES THIS FEEL WINTER WONDERLAND TO YOU?

IT ACTUALLY DOES, AND IT'S VERY NICE AND BIG ON THE BOTTOM.

[ WOMAN GASPS ]

OH. THAT'S BEAUTIFUL, KATIE.

Katie: I FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS IN THIS DRESS.

IT'S STUNNING.

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

SHE'S GONNA MAKE ME CRY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WOW. PAULA, WHAT DID YOU DO TO HER?

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO, KATIE COMES OUT,

AND EVERYONE'S LOVING IT, THEY'RE CRYING, THEY'RE HAPPY.

IT'S LIKE, "OKAY, WE'RE DONE."

DID ANY OTHER DRESS GIVE YOU THIS FEELING?

NO, BUT I LIKE THE DRESS, BUT I WOULDN'T PICK IT.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

I WANT TO TRY ON SOMETHING ALSO WITH TIGHT-FITTING LACE.

I FEEL BEAUTIFUL, BUT I'M READY TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

IT'S GONNA BE REALLY HARD TO FIND A DRESS FOR KATIE

IF SHE CRIES IN EVERY DRESS.

Narrator: COMING UP, MORE TEARS FROM KATIE.

HOW ARE WE GONNA KNOW WHEN YOU REALLY LOVE A GOWN?

I DON'T KNOW.

AND NO BELLS OF APPROVAL FOR STEPHANIE.

[ SIGHS ]

Narrator: BARGAIN-HUNTING KATIE IS HERE

TO FIND THE PERFECT GOWN FOR HER WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING.

I'M JUST LOOKING TO LOOK LIKE A WINTER PRINCESS.

Narrator: EVEN THOUGH DRESS ONE HAD HER IN TEARS...

PAULA, WHAT DID YOU DO TO HER?

[ LAUGHTER ]

...KATIE STILL WANTS TO SEE MORE OPTIONS.

Paula: WE JUST HAVE A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT DRESSES.

THIS ONE...

IS ALL LACE.

WE'RE TRYING A DIFFERENT SILHOUETTE ON KATIE

BECAUSE I JUST THOUGHT SHE SHOULD SEE ALL OF HER OPTIONS.

A LITTLE BIT STRAIGHTER, VERY SPARKLY.

I LIKE THIS, TOO. SEE, I DON'T KNOW NOW.

OOH.

OH, GOSH. I'M GONNA CRY AGAIN.

OH, THERE SHE GOES AGAIN.

OH, NO, NOT AGAIN.

OH, MY GOSH, KATIE.

Katie: STOP CRYING!

Randy: WAIT A MINUTE. WHAT'S GOING ON?

SHE'S CRYING AGAIN.

HOW ARE WE GONNA KNOW WHEN YOU REALLY LOVE A GOWN?

WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN?

I DON'T KNOW.

HOW DOES THIS GOWN COMPARE TO THE OTHER ONE?

I LOVE THE LACE. I DO LIKE HOW IT'S FITTED.

SO, YOU LIKE IT BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE?

I DON'T KNOW.

I FEEL BEAUTIFUL. I THINK LACE IS VERY ELEGANT.

Camille: IT'S BEAUTIFUL, AND YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL,

BUT I LIKE THE FULLER.

IF YOU'RE REALLY GOING FOR THAT PRINCESS LOOK,

THEN THE OTHER ONE REALLY SAID PRINCESS.

AND IT'S THE ONE TIME YOU GET TO WEAR A DRESS LIKE THAT.

SO, WITH THAT BEING SAID,

HOW DO YOU WANT TO LOOK ON YOUR WEDDING DAY?

LIKE A PRINCESS. [ LAUGHS ]

Narrator: AS KATIE IS OFF TO FIND THE RIGHT PRINCESS DRESS,

STEPHANIE IS LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT GOWN

FOR HER CHRISTMAS WEDDING.

DRESS NUMBER ONE DIDN'T MEET

HER JINGLE BELL CREW'S HIGH STANDARDS.

Stephanie: I'M NOT HEARING TOO MANY BELLS,

HOPEFULLY THE NEXT TIME I GO OUT THERE, I HEAR A FEW MORE.

Narrator: NOW DEBBIE HOPES DRESS NUMBER TWO WILL PLEASE EVERYONE.

LET ME HELP YOU OUT A LITTLE.

YOU SEEM TO BE HAVING A LITTLE BIT OF TROUBLE.

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

THIS IS THE FIRST DRESS I FELT, LIKE, "WOW."

OOH!

[ LAUGHS ]

WHEN DEBBIE PUT STEPHANIE IN THIS DRESS,

SHE LIGHTS UP ALMOST LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE.

I FEEL LIKE WE'RE FINALLY GETTING SOMEWHERE

IN THIS APPOINTMENT.

THIS IS VERY, LIKE, WINTER-ESQUE.

I LOVE THIS.

THERE YOU GO.

WINTER WONDERLAND.

IT IS.

AND I'LL BRING UP THE CABOOSE.

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

WHOO, WHOO.

COME ON, RING THE BELLS. RING THE BELLS.

THIS IS THE FIRST DRESS I PUT ON AND I SAID, "WOW."

I REALLY LOVE THE TOP,

AND I'M SURPRISED THAT I LOVE THE SKIRT.

I REALLY KNEW THAT THAT WAS IT FOR ME AT THAT MOMENT.

SHOULD WE TURN YOU AROUND AND LET THEM SEE?

YES, YES, YES.

[ BELLS JINGLING ]

I'M KIND OF IN THE MIDDLE.

[ SIGHS ]

BUT THIS IS -- MM.

Woman: TOO PLAIN?

I'M FEELING LIKE SHE'S SOLD, LIKE THIS IS THE DRESS.

AND I DIDN'T LIKE IT AT ALL. NOT AT ALL.

Stephanie: WHEN I TURNED AROUND AND I DON'T HEAR

THE JINGLE BELLS GOING OFF, I FELT UPSET.

Randy: SHOULD WE PUT ON THE FUR?

YOU KNOW, STEPHANIE REALLY LOVES THIS DRESS,

AND I FEEL FOR HER

BECAUSE NONE OF HER ENTOURAGE IS RINGING THESE BELLS.

I WANT TO JUMP IN THERE AND GRAB THE BELLS AND RING THEM MYSELF.

Debbie: ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED

THAT YOUR FAMILY DOESN'T LOVE THE DRESS AS MUCH AS YOU DO?

IF THEY DON'T LOVE IT, THEN I GUESS IT'S NOT THE DRESS.

Randy: STEPHANIE REALLY NEEDS TO HEAR THOSE BELLS RINGING,

SO IT FEELS LIKE WE'VE TAKEN A FEW STEPS BACKWARDS HERE.

Narrator: AFTER VETOING A LACE DRESS,

FRUGAL-MINDED KATIE IS DEAD SET ON PRINCESS BALL GOWNS.

SO RANDY HAS A SELECTION

THAT MAY MEET HER BARGAIN-HUNTING NEEDS.

I REALLY THINK THAT I'VE COME UP WITH A SOLUTION.

LOOK HERE AT THESE DRESSES THAT ARE ON SALE.

THIS ONE -- LOOK AT THIS DRESS.

$2,699.

I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE THESE WITH HER.

LET'S GO.

[ CHUCKLES ]

BEFORE WE TELL YOU ANYTHING, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I LOVE IT. I LOVE IT.

THIS DRESS IS $3,300.

UH-HUH.

I KNOW YOU WANTED TO STAY AT $2,000.

RIGHT.

IT'S MARKED DOWN TO $2,600.

AND WE PROBABLY COULD GET A LITTLE OFF THAT.

OKAY.

WHEN THEY BROUGHT IN THIS DRESS FOR ME TO TRY ON, I WAS IN AWE.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO PUT IT ON. I WAS SO EXCITED.

I LIKE IT. I LOVE THE TOP. THE TOP IS MY FAVORITE PART.

Paula: OH, MY GOODNESS. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

[ GASPS ]

MOM, IT'S A BARGAIN DRESS.

SO, WE FOUND THIS DRESS.

OH, MY GOSH, KATIE.

SO, HOW DO YOU FEEL IN THIS?

I LOVE THE TOP. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.

AND WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF IT?

IT'S SO PRETTY.

[ LAUGHS ]

Man: THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

Katie: I KNEW IT WAS THE RIGHT ONE WHEN I CAME OUT IMMEDIATELY.

IT'S STUNNING.

Paula: DO YOU FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS?

Woman: SHE'S GONNA CRY.

HERE COME THE WATERWORKS AGAIN.

IT'S GORGEOUS.

WE HAVE A LITTLE SECRET TO TELL YOU ABOUT THIS DRESS.

THIS DRESS IS ACTUALLY ON SALE.

SO IF YOU LOVE THIS DRESS, THIS WOULD BE THE DRESS.

YOU WOULD TAKE IT WITH YOU TODAY.

IT'S IN PERFECT CONDITION, AND IT IS A WONDERFUL PRICE.

SO, ORIGINALLY, THE DRESS WAS $3,300.

SO, IT'S NOW DOWN TO $2,699,

BUT WE'RE GONNA SEE WHAT WE CAN DO.

EVERYTHING IS RIDING ON THIS DRESS.

Narrator: COMING UP, CAN DOROTHY SAVE THE DAY?

EVERY TIME RANDY'S NICE TO ME,

I ALWAYS KNOW THAT HE WANTS SOMETHING.

YES.

Narrator: AND RANDY TRIES TO GET THOSE BELLS RINGING.

SO THE ONLY THING THAT'S STANDING IN BETWEEN HER

AND THE DRESS IS YOU GUYS.

Narrator: KATIE MAY HAVE FINALLY FOUND

THE PERFECT GOWN FOR HER CHRISTMAS WEDDING.

I FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS.

Narrator: BUT THE DRESS IS ABOVE HER $2,000 BUDGET.

Paula: SO, ORIGINALLY, THE DRESS WAS $3,300,

BUT WE'RE GONNA SEE WHAT WE CAN DO.

NOW RANDY AND PAULA HOPE DOROTHY CAN WORK SOME HOLIDAY MAGIC.

Dorothy: OH, RANDY. PAULA.

HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY?

I'M DOING GREAT.

EVERY TIME RANDY'S NICE TO ME,

I ALWAYS KNOW THAT HE WANTS SOMETHING.

YES.

Paula: THIS IS OUR BRIDE, WHO HAS A BUDGET OF...

HER BUDGET WAS $2,000.

DO YOU WANT TO GIVE IT TO HER FOR, UH...

OOH!

WE HAVE SOME WONDERFUL NEWS FOR YOU.

IT'S NOT BETWEEN $2,000 AND $2,500.

WHAT IS IT, PAULA?

IT'S $1,999.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

YAY! MOM, A REAL BARGAIN!

IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. EVERYTHING, IT'S GORGEOUS.

ARE YOU SAYING YES TO THIS DRESS?

YES.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

Narrator: KATIE SAID YES TO THIS $2,000 PNINA TORNAI GOWN.

COME HERE, PRINCESS. [ LAUGHS ]

Katie: I FEEL AMAZING.

IT FEELS SO GREAT TO HAVE MY DRESS.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR LARRY TO SEE IT.

Narrator: DOWN IN ALTERATIONS,

MEGAN HAS ARRIVED FOR THE FIRST FITTING OF THE DRESS

FOR HER CHRISTMAS WEDDING.

Megan: MY NAME IS MEGAN UNGER,

AND I'M HERE FOR MY FITTING TODAY.

THE THEME FOR MY WEDDING IS CHRISTMAS.

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT CHRISTMAS.

FROM WHEN I WAS LITTLE,

MY WHOLE FAMILY MADE IT A BIG DEAL,

SO IT'S VERY IMPORTANT MY MOTHER AND MY DAD ARE HERE.

IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME FOR MY DAD TO BE HERE TODAY.

HERE'S YOUR DRESS.

I'M EXCITED. [ LAUGHS ]

MY FIANCé'S NAME IS JUSTIN BEAN.

WE MET WHEN I WAS 15.

WE'VE JUST BEEN TOGETHER EVER SINCE.

JUSTIN PROPOSED TO ME ON CHRISTMAS EVE.

HE JUST LOOKED AT ME, AND HE SAID, "I LOVE YOU,

AND I WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH YOU."

WE'RE GETTING MARRIED IN A RESTORED BARN.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE CHRISTMAS TREES.

INSTEAD OF A CARD BOX, WE'RE GONNA DO A STOCKING.

IT'S JUST GONNA BE A VERY BEAUTIFUL WEDDING.

Narrator: AS MEGAN SLIPS INTO HER DREAM DRESS,

SHE'S NERVOUS ABOUT WHAT ONE IMPORTANT PERSON MIGHT THINK.

MY DAD HAS NEVER SEEN ME IN THIS DRESS, AND HE'S EXCITED.

YOU DIDN'T SEE THE DRESS YET?

NO, I DIDN'T SEE THE DRESS YET, DID NOT SEE HER IN THE DRESS.

I HOPE HE APPROVES.

DOES SHE MAKE THE DRESS, OR DOES THE DRESS MAKE HER?

IT'S SUCH AN OVERWHELMING FEELING,

'CAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE GONNA SAY.

I HOPE THEY LIKE IT. [ LAUGHS ]

Narrator: WHILE MEGAN HOPES FOR HER FATHER'S APPROVAL,

STEPHANIE'S FEELING LET DOWN

BY HER FAMILY'S OPINIONS ABOUT THE DRESS SHE LOVED.

STEPHANIE'S REALLY RELYING ON EVERYONE IN HER ENTOURAGE

TO SWAY HER OPINION.

I WANT TO SAY, "YEAH, I WOULD DEFINITELY GET IT

REGARDLESS OF WHAT MY FAMILY THOUGHT,"

BUT I THINK AT THE END OF THE DAY,

THEIR OPINION DOES MATTER TO ME.

Randy: OKAY. HOW WE DOING?

GOOD.

GOOD.

WHEN STEPHANIE PUT THAT DRESS ON, SHE SAID, "WOW."

SO, THE ONLY THING THAT'S STANDING IN BETWEEN HER

AND THE DRESS IS YOU GUYS.

RIGHT.

HOW STRONG IS SHE?

I'M NOT SURE. I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T EITHER.

I'LL BE JUST AS INTERESTED AS YOU TO FIGURE THAT ONE OUT.

Narrator: NOW DEBBIE PUTS STEPHANIE IN A DRESS

SHE HOPES WILL PLEASE EVERYONE.

[ GASPS ] [ CHUCKLES ] WOW.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL,

BUT I'M COMPARING IT TO THE OTHER ONE.

Debbie: AND?

AND I THINK I LIKE THE OTHER ONE BETTER.

OKAY.

WOW.

WHEW.

THAT'S REALLY PRETTY.

WOW.

IT'S REALLY PRETTY.

I REALLY LIKE IT.

I LIKE IT.

IT'S A LITTLE MORE FORM-FITTING,

BUT I STILL GET MY POUFY AT THE BOTTOM.

OKAY.

I THINK WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO GO BACK IN THE STOCK ROOM.

ONE MORE TIME.

ONE MORE TIME, YEAH.

I AGREE.

YEAH. COME ON.

LET'S GO.

ALL RIGHT. LET'S GO.

BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.

Narrator: WITH A FAMILY NOT SEEING EYE TO EYE,

DEBBIE AND RANDY ARE BEGINNING TO FEEL THE HEAT.

HOW DO I LOOK FOR ANOTHER DRESS

TO BEAT THE DRESS THAT SHE ALREADY LOVES?

THAT'S NOT FOR HER.

SATIN.

SHE'S NOT GONNA LIKE THAT.

NO. NO. NO. NO.

SHE WON'T LIKE THAT.

NO. NO.

NO. NO.

NO. NO.

ONCE YOU'VE FOUND A DRESS THAT THE BRIDE REALLY LOVES,

IT'S KIND OF LIKE, WELL, WHAT DO YOU PUT HER IN NEXT?

OH, DEBBIE?

WHAT? WHAT?

WE'RE IN TROUBLE.

Narrator: COMING UP, MOM HAS SOME WORDS FOR STEPHANIE.

Phyllis: I DON'T WANT YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T GET SOMETHING

IF OUR BELLS AREN'T RINGING THE RIGHT WAY.

Narrator: AND MEGAN FACES THE MUSIC.

OKAY.

Narrator: STEPHANIE THOUGHT SHE FOUND

THE PERFECT DRESS FOR HER WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING.

BUT A DISAGREEING MOM IS ACTING LIKE THE GRINCH

WHO STOLE HER CHRISTMAS DREAMS.

I DIDN'T LIKE IT AT ALL. NOT AT ALL.

Narrator: AS THE SEARCH CONTINUES FOR STEPHANIE,

MOM HAS SOME WORDS FOR THE BRIDE-TO-BE.

Phyllis: WHEN I SAW THAT SHE WAS UNHAPPY,

I FELT LIKE I NEEDED TO GO AND SAY SOMETHING TO HER.

Debbie: HI.

HI.

COME ON IN.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNOW

THAT IT'S ABOUT WHAT YOU LOVE.

OKAY.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU CAN'T GET SOMETHING

IF OUR BELLS AREN'T RINGING IN THE RIGHT WAY.

I WANT EVERYONE TO LOVE IT.

I KNOW. I KNOW.

AND NOW I'M COMPARING EVERYTHING TO THAT ONE.

BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONE THAT ROCKED YOUR WORLD.

AND IT'S YOUR WORLD YOU HAVE TO ROCK.

HER TALKING TO ME DEFINITELY PUT ME BACK ON TRACK

TOWARD THAT DRESS.

Narrator: AFTER MOM'S KIND WORDS,

STEPHANIE'S READY TO STEP BACK INTO THE DRESS SHE LOVED.

I THINK IT'S VERY WINTER WONDERLAND.

I JUST STARTED GETTING GIDDY.

OOH.

Debbie: WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I THINK I LOVE IT.

YOU THINK YOU LOVE IT OR YOU KNOW YOU LOVE IT?

NO. AS I WAS LOOKING AT IT,

I JUST GOT HAPPIER AND HAPPIER AND HAPPIER.

THAT'S EXACTLY HOW YOU SHOULD FEEL IN YOUR WEDDING DRESS.

I'M JUST NERVOUS ABOUT THE JINGLE BELL CREW.

Debbie: HOW DO WE FEEL?

[ BELLS JINGLING ]

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

THAT IS MUSIC TO MY EARS!

Stephanie: WHEN I HEAR THE JINGLE BELLS GOING OFF,

IT MEANT A LOT TO ME.

I THINK THEY CAME AROUND.

Phyllis: WHEN SHE CAME BACK OUT, I COULDN'T HELP IT.

I JUST LOVED IT.

ARE WE GONNA SAY YES TO THE DRESS?

I'M SAYING YES!

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

LET ME HEAR SOME BELLS! WHOO!

Narrator: STEPHANIE WILL WALK DOWN THE AISLE

IN THIS $5,300 LAZARO GOWN.

Stephanie: I FEEL SO HAPPY.

I'M SO EXCITED, AND I'M RELIEVED THAT I FOUND MY DRESS HERE.

Narrator: BACK IN ALTERATIONS,

MEGAN'S TRYING ON THE GOWN FOR HER CHRISTMAS-THEMED WEDDING

AND WORRIES IT WON'T GET DAD'S APPROVAL.

MY DAD HAS NEVER SEEN ME IN THIS DRESS.

IT'S SUCH AN OVERWHELMING FEELING.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE GONNA SAY.

OKAY.

OH, MY GOD.

WOW.

SHE LOOKED REALLY BEAUTIFUL. GREAT DRESS.

Megan: HE WAS CRYING WHEN HE SAW ME IN THAT DRESS.

IT WAS JUST A VERY OVERWHELMING, HAPPY FEELING.

IT'S PERFECT.

YES.

I CAN PICTURE MYSELF WALKING DOWN THE AISLE,

AND I'M SO EXCITED, TOO.

Narrator: ON A WINTRY DAY IN RURAL PENNSYLVANIA,

MEGAN IS READY FOR HER CHRISTMAS DREAMS TO COME TRUE.

Justin: WHEN HER FATHER WAS WALKING HER DOWN THE AISLE,

SHE LOOKED ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE.

WITH THIS RING, I THEE WED.

I DO.

Officiant: JUSTIN, YOU MAY KISS YOUR BRIDE.

[ APPLAUSE ]

Megan: MY IDEA WAS TO HAVE A VERY CHRISTMASY THEME,

AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE

EVERYTHING I EVER COULD HAVE DREAMED OF.

I CHOSE THIS DRESS BECAUSE THIS IS SO ME.

AND IT JUST FIT PERFECT.

IT FEELS AMAZING TO BE MARRIED. [ LAUGHS ]

IT'S JUST A REALLY GOOD FEELING.

Narrator: WHEN A BRIDE DREAMS OF A WINTER WONDERLAND,

IT'S A CONSULTANT'S JOB

TO MAKE SURE HER HOLIDAY WISHES COME TRUE.

AND IF SHE'S ABLE TO CHOOSE THE DRESS SHE TRULY LOVES,

SHE'LL WALK DOWN THE AISLE DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS.
