"Something Borrowed, Something New" solves the bride's classic wedding dilemma: Does she wear a borrowed and beloved family heirloom, or does she buy a new dress that fits her own sense of style? Stylist Sam Saboura scours bridal salons for the perfect new dress, while designer Kelly Nishimoto reworks the family dress into a one-of-a-kind borrowed heirloom! In the end, the bride must choose between the two.
I thought it sounded like a good concept the first time I saw the commercial. So I've been eagerly awaiting this. When I got married almost 20 years ago, there was no way in hell I would have worn my mothers and it had nothing to do with my parents still not being married. She had a mini skirt wedding dress! I'm divorced now too and only had boys and mine was very 90's (of course at the time I thought it was timeless and would still look beautiful when my kids grew up) and can tell you the poofy sleeves (that were worn off the shoulders) just dated that gown. I actually sold it a few years ago in a garage sale.
So seeing this one bride walk out in her moms obvious 70's style dress with long sleeves and a high neck was too funny. Then her, "I can't do this dress, I'm already itching and sweating in this" was right on.
