Martha Stewart Dishes Out Wedding Dress Advice on Say Yes to the Dress


Shopping for a wedding dress is an anxiety-inducing experience to say the least — you have to stick to a budget, weigh the advice of your friends and family, and somehow pick one perfect dress from a sea of beautiful white gowns. But one thing that’s sure to ease the stress? When the fairy godmother of all things bridalthe Martha Stewart — shows up to help you!

In the season premiere of Say Yes to the Dress, the guru tagged along on a friend’s Kleinfeld shopping trip, offering her extremely refined expert advice along the way.

The lifestyle guru was on hand to assist Bailey, an employee of Stewart’s publicist (whose wedding Stewart also attended!), as she rehashed her options after having doubts about her initial dress choice.

And Stewart was totally game. “Having had a daughter who wore a gray flannel suit to her wedding, any chance I get to help a bride is fun,” she explained.

See how everything starts off (like the reaction of the surprised Kleinfeld consultant, which is all of us) in the clip below.

And things get slightly more dramatic when Bailey starts trying on different looks. (As Stewart put it, she tried to “tread lightly” with the criticism … but the lifestyle guru has never been one to mince words.)
