Lori sees a lot of women walk into her bridal salon, and shes sized up sisters pretty accurately. Theyre usually polar opposites when it comes to shopping, she says. And the sister whos not getting married is the one who wants to choose the dress. Sound accurate to you? Well, lets take a look at how things played out with Jackie Jo and sis Lacy Lee!
Jackie Jo already had a wedding dress — so why was she shopping for another one? Big sis Lacy Lee thought it looked cheap and trashy. (Good call, Lacy Lee. It was a little, uh, boobalicious.) While Jackie Jo wanted to keep that modern, sexy look in her new gown, Lacy Lee thought it could be pulled off more tastefully. Mom didnt really care. She was cute and giggly and just wanted to see some sparkle! Definitely one of the most fun moms weve seen on the show!
In dress No. 1, Jackie Jo was pleased with the deep V-neck and simple design. “I love it. Its flat and theres not a lot of crap on it,” she said. Lacy Lee thought it was too low-cut, and Mom wanted more bling. Jackie Jo, she said, needed “something that sparkles and pops!” Try No. 2 was Montes pick: modern elegance with just a touch of bling, he called it. “This dress is locked and loaded!” Jackie Jo exclaimed. As she modeled it on the runway, she proclaimed it a perfect 10. Mom weighed in, “Its a 12!” What about modest big sis Lacy Lee? “It looks like what you deserve to walk down the aisle in.” Well-said, sis!
Robin tears up at the drop of a hat, and she had an especially emotional appointment in this episode. Kelsey was shopping with her dad, who was terminally ill with cancer. It was paramount that Dad not only be present for the appointment but that he play a role in choosing the dress. “When you find the right one, Ill let you know,” he told Kelsey. He felt very strongly that the dress play up Kelseys “petite little figure.” Lets shop, then!
Dress No. 1 was the perfect gown in Kelseys book…until her sister pointed out that it made her shoulders look broad from behind. Lori explained that any time the bride gets verbally wounded like that, its essential to put the criticism back on the DRESS and not on the brides BODY. “I was 100 percent sure my family was going to like this dress,” Kelsey said. Lori was determined to pull a family-pleasing gown. “Knowing what this family has been going through, even I want to please Dad!” she said.
She pulled a more fitted gown with a beaded belt to play up Kelseys shape and add just a hint of shimmer. The dress made Kelsey look like a sophisticated princess. When Kelsey saw her dads tears, she didnt even have to say “yes” — everyone knew!
