'Say Yes To The Dress': Samantha struggles to get her family's approval as they call her dream dress a curtain
Samantha Moniz was always conscious of the way she looked, but after losing 115lbs, she found confidence that she never knew she had. Samantha decided to turn her life around after she found out that she was borderline diabetic. Taking this as a sign to take control of her life, she switched to working out regularly and eating healthy.
While Samantha is now happy with the way she looks, she wants to find a wedding dress that makes her feel the same. Samantha admitted that having worked so hard, she wanted to show off the new figure and get a dress that made her feel flawless. Keeping this in mind, Samantha was offered multiple dresses to try. With a budget of $3000, Samantha hoped that she would be able to walk out with a dress that made her look flawless. The first dress that she tried was a ballgown. Unfortunately, she did not feel good in it as she felt it was hiding all the hard work she had put into trying to lose weight.
Samantha then moved on to the second dress that was a mermaid style dress. The second she stepped into it, Samantha knew it was the one for her. She felt a glow on her face and a voice inside her head that made it certain that the search ended there. However, the same was not reciprocated by her family.
Her mother, Sheila and aunt, Lisa did not seem to be fans of the dress. Her aunt thought that the dress looked like a curtain as it had too much lace. Meanwhile, her mother thought that there were better dresses out there. To please her family, Samantha tried the third dress. However, she could not get her mind off the dress she had tried on earlier.
To convince her family that this was the dress, Samantha took them to see different dresses that were available. Once they noticed how much Samantha loved the dress, they decided to give in and say yes. Seeing her family finally on board with her, Samantha proudly said yes to the dress and admitted that she felt confident to walk down the aisle in that dress.
'Say Yes To The Dress' airs on Saturdays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
