00:00:03Your breasts are ridiculous.
00:00:05Angel: That's all we can talk about.
00:00:06Jenny: Those bad boys are like a c-plus-plus-plus.
00:00:09Would you stop? sorry, dad. sorry, dad.
00:00:11Okay, dad, go ahead. go ahead, dad.
00:00:13It's beautiful. very nice. very pretty.
00:00:16She did look magnificent.
00:00:17How do you like it? I like it a lot.
00:00:19I can really tell that she's a daddy's girl, and I think she's got daddy wrapped around her little finger.
00:00:25I feel kind of sexy and kind of bridal.
00:00:29It's tight, but it makes me look good.
00:00:31It's beautiful.
00:00:33Narrator: Both katie and her dad love the first dress, but not everyone's in agreement.
00:00:36I just wish it had a little bit of a longer train.
00:00:41Dolores: Looking at her in it, I picture the ballroom gown, and that's not what she's leaning toward.
00:00:47So, is this the dress to beat?
00:00:48This is definitely number one.
00:00:50If this is the right one for her, we'll see.
00:00:53Here we go.
00:00:55Narrator: Across the salon, another bride has arrived with her dad in tow.
00:01:01My name is kayla capanna, and I'm hereshopping for my bridal gown.
00:01:03Who'd youbring with you today?
00:01:04This is my stepmom, sonya.
00:01:06Hi. how you doing? hi. how are you?
00:01:07My best friend, stephanie. hi, stephanie.
00:01:10And my sister carly. hi, carly.
00:01:11This is my dad, john.
00:01:12Hi, john. how are you? hi. nice to meet you.
00:01:14My dad is my best friend.
00:01:17He was in an accident.
00:01:19I was burnedin an explosion at a refinery when I was 20 years old.
00:01:23It was absolutely horrific.
00:01:24Kayla: It completely scarred him over 80% of his body.
00:01:27He was like that before I was born, so to me, he doesn't look any different.
00:01:30It just happened to be something that scarred him on the outside.
00:01:33It didn't fracture who he was on the inside.
00:01:36My relationship with kayla is a great relationship.
00:01:39We are like best friends.
00:01:40I don't know what I would do without him.
00:01:42Tell me what you're looking at.
00:01:44I have a couple of pictures I can show you.
00:01:45..
00:01:48It's a little more whimsical.
00:01:50I want that very dreamy, romantic feel.
00:01:53Where would like to be price-wise with the dress, kayla? under $3,000.
00:01:56 are you all set and ready to try on some dresses?
00:01:59Come in, please. thank you.
00:02:01Tell me a little bit about the venue.
00:02:03Kayla: It's like an old, restored warehouse.
00:02:05It used to be a pickle-barrel factory.
00:02:07And how did you meet the groom?
00:02:08His name is ryan. we met through friends.
00:02:10There was always, like, that little spark there, and we just knew that we wanted to be together.
00:02:15We really balance each other out.
00:02:16I'm gonna do a little bit of shopping, and I'll be back for you, okay?
00:02:19Narrator: Debbie's challenge is to find a traditional gown for a modern bride.
00:02:23I wonder if she would like something like this.
00:02:25 I mean, we could try it.
00:02:28I can bring this.
00:02:29Hi. I'm back. okay.
00:02:30Narrator: Debbie's first pick is a tulle ball gown -- exactly what kayla was asking for.
00:02:35What do you think? I love the tulle.
00:02:37The tulle is magical. I think so, too.
00:02:39Okay. perfect. come.
00:02:45Debbie: Okay, so, how do you feel now, coming out here and looking at the dress?
00:02:49It's very pretty.
00:02:50I really am in love with tulle.
00:02:52I think that it's just really whimsical and romantic.
00:02:55But I don't love how high the waist is.
00:02:58I think that it just made me look really short.
00:03:01I feel boxed in.
00:03:03Okay.
00:03:05That's beautiful.
00:03:06Dad loves the dress.
00:03:07Dad loves kayla.
00:03:10She hates it.
00:03:12[ Laughter ] Carly: I think that kayla is confused.
00:03:14She thinks that she wantsthat princess ball gown, but she's really petite.
00:03:18It just swallows her whole.
00:03:20When she findsthe right dress, it's not gonna beanything like that.
00:03:25Narrator:..
00:03:27It didn't really, you know,accent her silhouette.
00:03:31Narrator:...AND OVERDOING IT FOR A DAD.
00:03:33..too much.
00:03:37It's not somethingmy daughter would wear.
00:03:42I would kill for something sweet.
00:03:43I know...
00:03:45We could have ONE of those.
00:03:47One? Are you kidding?

00:05:17We have three Chevy's here.
00:05:17Alright.
00:05:18I want you to place this award on the podium next to the vehicle that you think was ranked highest in initial quality by J.D. Power.
00:05:23Hmm.
00:05:25Can I look around at them?
00:05:26Sure.
00:05:27Umm.
00:05:27Highest ranking in initial quality.
00:05:28It's gotta be this one.
00:05:30This is it.
00:05:31You are wrong.
00:05:32Really?
00:05:33Actually it's all three.
00:05:33You tricked me.
00:05:35J.D. Power ranked the Malibu, Silverado Half-Ton and Equinox highest in initial quality in their segments.
00:05:39That's impressive!
00:05:41I'm very surprised!
00:05:42I am. I'm very surprised.
00:05:43Chevy hit three home runs.
00:07:12Narrator: Kayla wants to look like a princess when her dad, john, walks her down the aisle.
00:07:16That's beautiful.
00:07:17But opinionated sister carly thinks she knows better.
00:07:20I don't ever see herin a ball-gown dress.
00:07:21 it just swallows her whole.
00:07:25Narrator: Debbie hopes the second pick will win over the bride, her dad, and her opinionated sister carly.
00:07:30Debbie: What are we thinking so far?
00:07:32I like it. I think it's pretty.
00:07:34Okay. let's go show them. I love it.
00:07:36Okay.
00:07:48Debbie: So, this one shows the body more.
00:07:50Has the raw-cut edge.
00:07:54They don't seem too happy.
00:07:55Nobody is wowed by this at all.
00:07:57It didn't have enough, like, full-bodiness to it, so it didn't really, you know, accent her siluette.
00:08:03I like it 3/4 of the way down, and then the bottom reminds me of a petticoat, how it's layered.
00:08:09I had mixed feelings about it.
00:08:11Didn't turn me onone way or the other.
00:08:13So this is not it? this is not it.
00:08:15Okay. we'll be back.
00:08:17 [ laughs ] Narrator: Across the salon, katie and her dad are in agreement about her first dress.
00:08:22I feel kind of sexyand kind of bridal.
00:08:26Very nice. very pretty.
00:08:27Narrator: But katie decides it's mom she needs to please with her next dress -- a traditional ball gown.
00:08:32I don't know. I do like this.
00:08:33I didn't think I would.
00:08:35Oh, wow.
00:08:36I really do like the ball gown.
00:08:38Ready? let's go.
00:08:42Dolores: [ Gasps ] ah.
00:08:45It's so pretty. I love the detail.
00:08:47We like this one a lot.
00:08:49I didn't think I'd like a ball gown, but I really, really like this one.
00:08:52Let's see what they say.
00:08:57Truthfully, I think I like the other one better.
00:09:01OH! Woman: Yes!
00:09:03The more I kept looking at the dress, the more I realized it really wasn't as flatteringon her.
00:09:10You likethe other one better?
00:09:11I likethe other one better.
00:09:12..too much.
00:09:16It's not somethingmy daughter would wear.
00:09:18All right. are we ready?
00:09:19Katie E.: Yes. let's move it.
00:09:21Narrator: Across the salon, kayla's stuck on finding a tulle gown, but her consultant, debbie, has something else in mind.
00:09:27I really have such a desire to put the bride in lace.
00:09:30I don't know why. it's just an inner feeling.
00:09:33Narrator: She's gone todirector of sales nicole for a second opinion.
00:09:37The bride wants something a little bit more organic feeling at the bottom.
00:09:40She loves the idea of tulle, but for some reason I can't stop wanting to put her in lace.
00:09:45Come on. let's go look. yeah. let's go look.
00:09:47This is beautiful. I know.
00:09:48How would she feel about the color?
00:09:49She'd look great in that color 'cause she's got that dark hair.
00:09:52We could do it in ivory. it doesn't matter.
00:09:54HI. Kayla: Hi.
00:09:55Have you met nicole yet? I have not.
00:09:57How you doing? nice to meet you.
00:09:59This is nicole.
00:09:59How's everything? beautiful artwork.
00:10:01Thank you. thank you very much.
00:10:03Debbie definitely wanted to bring you in lace and was hesitant about it, and I kind of gave her that push because it's not overly lacy, girly, cutesy to me.
00:10:11It's very pretty, but it is not me.
00:10:14Kayla: I hate lace.
00:10:15I think that lacelooks like doilies, like my grandma would have on her dining-room table.
00:10:22Would you be willing to at least try it on?
00:10:24I'll try it on, but I think everybody's gonna think that I'm punking them.
00:10:28Try it on. doesn't hurt. okay. thank you.
00:10:30Nice to meet you. you, too.
00:10:32Just thinking to myself the whole time, like, I just -- no, this is never gonna work.
00:10:38I think the dress is absolutely sensational on you.
00:10:42I think they're all going to die.
00:10:44Okay. let's go out there. we'll show them.
00:10:46Okay.
00:10:54Look at you in this dress.
00:10:57How does it make you feel?
00:10:58Excited.
00:10:59But, no, I really kind of like it.
00:11:01Good.
00:11:02..
00:11:04Shocked? I know. shocked.
00:11:06I was so anti-lace when I came in here.
00:11:08I'm really astonished because this is not what I wanted, and now here I am, standing in a lace dress.
00:11:15Do you like it?
00:11:19Beautiful. I love it.
00:11:20Of all the dresses, I had thebiggest reaction to that one.
00:11:23I thought that was perfect.
00:11:25It's the vintage appeal with thewild-and-crazy bottom.
00:11:29I think that it's beautiful.
00:11:31I think that it is exactlywhat she was looking for with a little bit ofwhat she wasn't looking for.
00:11:36Kayla: This dress encompasses everything that everybody wanted, but it works somehow.
00:11:42Are we gonna say yes to the dress?
00:11:46We are saying yes to the dress.
00:11:48[ Applause ] whoo-hoo!
00:11:51Yay!
00:11:52Narrator: Kayla surprised herself by saying yes to a $3,000 jim hjelm lace mermaid gown.
00:11:58I can picture myself walking down the aisle in it.
00:12:00I feel like it's gonna be the dress that makes everybody happy.
00:12:03John: I can picture myself walking down the aisle with her.
00:12:07I'm sure that'll be a very emotional moment for me.
00:12:10I think we look good together.
00:12:12We were made for each other.

00:16:02I don't like that the skirt isn't as poufy.
00:16:04We could do this neckline with this beading on the other dress. you might have me sold.
00:16:08I really do love the beading on this dress, but I just don't know if I like the taffeta.
00:16:13I'm really looking for satin.

00:16:29I think that beading ..

00:16:39It's a dress that nobody else has.
00:16:41We're gonna go put the other dress back on.

00:22:30Here we go.

00:23:12I'm kind of sad that I'mgetting closer to the point where I'll no longerhave her as my little girl.
00:23:19I like it.

00:23:22I do.

00:23:53I think we need to have dad come up and show us how he's gonna walk her down the aisle.
00:23:57Oh, yes, yes. I have to hand him off.
00:24:00Remember, my first daughter.
00:24:02Yeah.
00:24:03When I'm standing next to her, it just drove that point further in.
00:24:07I'm gonna give away my daughter, my baby, my princess.
00:24:11I don't think I'll ever be able to hand her off totally.
00:24:14Aww.
00:24:16[ Laughs ] Narrator: Downstairs, katie's hoping that her dress will fit her, with her wedding just one week away.
