Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss!

Not to fond of the name, but the show itself is awesome.  The girls are super fun and it's great to see their experiences. It's so nice to see plus size brides at Kleinfeld's definitely check it out its on TLC on Friday nights at 9/8c.

I didn't understand why they had to put a name on it, but I am enjoying the show :-)


There shouldn't be a separation between types of brides as far as I am concerned. a person is a person and a bride is a bride!

I guess they wanted to differentiate these episodes from the norm aka Atlanta and the other seasons, but it just comes of as being degrading.  They were not showing enough plus size girls in the regular seasons so I am glad that they did this, but someone could have come up with something a little better than Big Bliss, lol.

I am glad I am not the only one who thinks the name could use some work.  However, I am not sure I can think of a better one before my morning coffee is done, lol.  I am glad they chose to do a show of just plus size brides and their bridal experiences. 


What annoyed me was the ripping of the feathery dress.  I have never seen a regular episode of SYTTD or SYTTDA where that happened and I found it to be degrading of them to feature it on a plus size show.

Well I don't have extended cable now so I can't full partake in watching it.  And while I appreciate those (in the entertainment industry) who feel that are making an effort to include an often excluded group, couldn't they have simply added more plus size brides to the regular rotation?  Like make sure to feature one an episode? 


Where ever you happen to be in your plus size mentality (either fine & happy with your size or hoping to lose weight or somewhere in between) I think we all just want to be included and not necessarily singled out.


That's my two cents anyway!

I, for one, am not offended or annoyed by the name. What else would they call it? "The one where the fat girl rips the dress" or "The obligatory big girl episode." I think the name fits just fine. They are featuring larger girls, and they are finding their wedding dress bliss.


 


Just my two cents.

I am a size 16 oopps size 14 now, thanks to my personal trainer, Do not see an issue with the name. And secondly they do have what the world considers "plus size" on the show before, the one loud was was the canadian girl that couldnt afford the Enzoni dress, remember she was BLING Bride, and she got the dress anyway talking about she was going to sell a Kidney to pay for it, so yeh!


also remember the MD brides, one was plus and short and sooo wanted a mermaid dress she tried on the pink one and Randy tried to convince her that mermaid wasnt for her, but she ended up with you bet that same Enzoani mermaid gown. 


 


Hmm come to think of it there was a big african american girl from the south that wanted this strappy, slinky gown, she bought her mom and grandmother, she came out with it  and they were like eeww you dont look right in it, remember her. 


then there was the military girl, her and hubby needed a quicky wedding to get stationed together in order to get married and she was at least a 10-12


then there was katrina hurricane bride, they gave her her dress for gratis, she again at least 10-12


the list can go on


So please lets stop being so sensitve on the weight issue, you only make it an issue yourself. I have my days but I make it that way.. SMH

I actually LOVE the show. I DVR every Fri night.


I like having them all together, I remember they had a few plus size brides on the original show, but having so many is way cool. And its not always about ripping a dress or oh look at the big girl trying to put on a tight dress. I think its charming that they can showcase how beautiful ANY woman can be in their dream dress.


 


Nothing but smiles for me, and it was soooo helpful to see so many different styles on different body types. It made it easier for me when I went looking and trying on.
