'Say Yes to the Dress: America': Erin finds stunning dream dress that's a perfect 'mix of ball gown and boho'
This week's episode introduced us to Erin Looney, the bride who will be representing West Virginia on the TLC show
'Say Yes to the Dress: America' returned to our screens on Saturday night, and this week's episode introduced us to the bride who will be representing West Virginia—Erin Looney.
Eight episodes from now, we will get to witness 52 brides gather together and walk down the aisle at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park on 'Say Yes to the Dress: America' while famed host and fashion designer Randy Fenoli officiates their wedding.
The series chooses a bride and groom from every state in America, including Washington DC and Puerto Rico.
Each chosen bride will receive an all-expense-paid trip to New York where they will get to go to Kleinfeld Bridal and choose their wedding gown that will be carefully selected.
TLC will also host these brides and grooms a pre-wedding reception and a group wedding at Central Park.
This week, we were introduced to the bride who will be representing West Virginia, and the series couldn't have made a better choice.
Erin met her fiance while they were working together at the juvenile center.
Sharing her feelings, Erin revealed that this is better than a lottery because she grew up watching the show and always wanted to get her wedding dress from Kleinfeld. Looking for the dress of her dreams, Erin was worried she might be too picky and will not find the perfect dress in time.
Erin's vision of the dress is that she wants it to be a perfect balance between a gown and a slash of boho because she wanted to have her hair braided with flowers and a beaded headband. Though she loves sparkles, she says no to sashes and corsets.
With Randy and consultant Zoey trying to find her perfect dress, Erin seemed to be discouraged with most of the dresses that were shown to her. They even brought out a mermaid cut dress, that she liked but didn't feel that's the one she wanted.
While she was starting to lose all hope, they finally brought out a beautiful Hailey Paige dress that had everything that she was looking for. It has that hint of boho, with tons of tule that gave it a ball gown look.
Erin looked stunning in the dress, and couldn't wait to say yes to it. Her mother Ruth Looney shared that it had the "va va voom" that she wanted.
Taking to Twitter after the episode, fans couldn't stop sharing how Erin looked perfect in the dress.
"So beautiful Erin!!! Stunning!! #[email protected] West Virginia!!!" a fan wrote. While another shared, "I am so darn glad that Erin said yes to her Hayley Paige dress! #SYTTD."
"Erin looks stunning in her Hayley Paige dress. I love the dress a lot! #SYTTD," wrote a fan. Adding to that another said, "@syttd Erin is a sweetheart! #SYTTD @randyfenoli."
