I'm not the type of girl who watches much television, Seems to me to be a great wasteland (with a few exceptions). But I have always had an interest in the show "Say Yes to the Dress". I finally got the chance to watch it last night.
"Say Yes to the Dress reveals the inner workings of the world's premier bridal salon, Kleinfeld Bridal. Part fashion show, part bridal story, part family therapy, the series uncovers the hurdles every staff member faces to make each bride completely satisfied on what may be the single most important day of her life.
Watch as a team of specialists guides brides through the process of selecting, fitting, altering and delivering each flawless dress in time for the perfect day. It's not a stress-free endeavor, but somehow by the final fitting Kleinfeld pulls all of the details together."
Thankfully the show is not into humiliating anyone. It's an adorable combination of lovely bridal fashion and the bride and her mother and friends (and especially the Bridal specialists) trying to make her completely happy with her selection. It's fun to watch and gives you a warm feeling inside. Check out some wonderful examples

Don't you just adore the reaction when the Bride sees herself in the gown she truly loves for the first time? Priceless!
The show is available from Itunes at $1.99 per episode. Wish it was available on DVD.
