11 Signs You Know You're Obsessed With 'Say Yes To The Dress'

11 Signs You Know You're Obsessed With 'Say Yes To The Dress'


There are so many bridal shows on television nowadays, such as "Bridezillas" and "My Fair Wedding." With all of the new shows constantly coming out, there will always be a series near and dear to our hearts: "Say Yes to The Dress." Whether your heart lies with "New York," "Atlanta," "Bridesmaids," or "Randy Knows Best," here are 11 ways that you know you have a bit of an obsession.

1. You know exactly what you want to a T...

You know what designers you like, styles you prefer, and what you're budget is going to be. #Lazarogirl all the way.

2. Or you have absolutely no clue because there are so many beautiful choices.

3. Deep down you know that Monte from "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" is your spirit animal.

He is the perfect mixture of cheeky quips and southern charm.

4. You are now very aware who NOT to bring to your bridal appointment.

There are always those brides that bring groups of people that are overly opinionated and never have the bride in mind. You also know that it is never a good idea to have too big of a group with you.

5. Friday Bride Day is your favorite day of the week.

"Say Yes to the Dress," "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta," "Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids," "Four Weddings," "Bride by Design," and more! It's everything our satin- and lace-loving hearts desire.

6. You judge other bride's fashion choices.

Some brides have the absolute worst choices when it comes to picking their dresses, especially if they have a theme. Legitimately, there was a girl that wanted a pirate-themed dress. I can't make this stuff up.

7. You're willing to travel to Kleinfeld's or Bridals by Lori to find your perfect dress.

You can't wait until you're able to get up on that pedestal in front of your loved ones in a gorgeous wedding dress. These stores also have so many options that many other bridal shops don't offer, such as dresses in colored options, like this blush gown by Lazaro.

8. When Randy gets sassy and it makes the episode that much better.

Randy (most) always knows what is best for the clients, and when they go against his advice or are particularly picky or rude, he will unleash the ultimate sass.

9. You have no idea why someone would spend more than a down payment on a house for a dress.

$4,000 dollars is actually a reasonable price, considering that many of the brides go up to $10,000, and in some episodes, they have featured brides buying multiple dresses or even purchasing a dress upwards of $50,000. That is literally the price of two brand new cars.

10. You feel like you're best friends with the bridal associates.

In addition to following the journeys of each individual bride, you get to learn about the bridal associates and their lives as well. Watching Nicole get promoted and Sarah pick out her wedding dress made us giddy with excitement.

11. And you can't help but smile and feel giddy inside when they finally say yes to the dress.

You can't wait to go shopping for your own wedding dress after watching brides find the dresses of their dreams. Whether they want to look like a princess or old Hollywood glamour, each bride that finds a dress fits them perfectly and makes us happy for them.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

Thank You, Lady Gaga, For Teaching Me To Embrace Who I Am

"I am my own sanctuary and I can be reborn as many times as I choose throughout my life." -Lady Gaga


I remember being nine years old and hearing Gaga's voice for the first time. When "Just Dance" came out, everyone around me was loving it until they saw the face behind the voice. All of the singles that came from The Fame started filling the radio stations near me, they were on TV, and Gaga was everywhere. My mom's boyfriend at the time played some of her music and I remember it was always my favorite compared to the country music he normally listened to. The first time I saw Lady Gaga was in her video for "Poker Face" and if I had any doubts at nine years old I knew two things: that was the first real piece of art I had seen since watching the "Smooth Criminal" video by Michael Jackson, and that I was most definitely queer.

Over the ten years that I have followed Lady Gaga, I have seen a true transformation in the woman that we all know and love. Everyone around me never thought she would make it because of her unique style and her badass attitude. I knew from the start that she was going to be big and I could not wait to see that growth.

As a kid, I was bullied and I was an outcast. All my life, I have worn "boys" clothes and felt like I never really had any control over my body. At nine, I was still really young and had not hit puberty but I already knew that I hated my body. My hair was too long, my voice was too high, my face was too round, and my chest was too big. Inside, I felt like I was a different person. Lady Gaga was the thing that got me through this period of my life and still is.

When I looked at Lady Gaga, I saw myself. I saw how she distracted everyone from what she looked like with her bold fashion choices. The way she would make a record and fly to the top of the charts and get praised for her music. Then, she would be on an awards show and later on people would make comments about her outfits, her personality, her dancing, everything about her was judged. Gaga was the truest replication of what I was feeling.

Like almost every other queer person, when "Born This Way" came out I lost my mother fucking mind. I finally saw someone besides Ellen standing up for people like me. The song was everywhere and it was because it was a new Gaga song, but people were hearing the story of my life because of someone braver and with a bigger platform than me.

If we speed up to October 21, 2016; the day "Joanne" came out. At this point in my life, I was out to most everyone and I was starting my freshman year in college and I needed "Joanne" more than anything. The "new" Lady Gaga that appeared with "Joanne" was so real and it felt like when I came out. "Joanne" was not a new Lady Gaga, it is Lady Gaga in her rawest form. This album was a reflection of my coming out. Everything about this era of Gaga felt right.

Due to the major difference, Gaga received a lot of backlash from critics, fans, and everyone in the media. The reason this album is a reflection of my coming out experience is that it's real, painful, raw, and thrilling. With the new album came a new Gaga that not everyone had seen before. The advocacy, outreach, and even the Superbowl performance were new for viewers.

I swear to everything in my life, Lady Gaga has changed me. This woman has taught me to love myself and embrace the person that I am. The pure emotion that Gaga shows in her work has helped me learn to accept my mental health issues and grow from them instead of using them against myself like I did before I found her. One day, I hope to have the heart that she does; all she does is love and care and advocate for things she believes in.

Lady Gaga, you have changed my life. Your music, fashion, talent, and realness has helped me to grow into the person that I am today. You are an icon for our generation and for every person alive. Watching you over the past ten years has only helped me grow and be more driven in every aspect of my life. I won't rest until I see you, my hero, perform live. Everything about you has changed my life and I would give anything to have an impact on someone's life the way you have had on mine. Thank you for everything you have done for me and for everyone else that has had the opportunity to hear your voice. We love you Mother Monster.
