97. Big Bliss...Big Miss?

I love Say Yes to the Dress - love it.

I personally think every bride getting married and wants to buy a wedding dress should watch this show. I've learned a lot about what is out there, the different dresses and how they look on people. I'm glad I did before my wedding - and I love still watching it now.

My concern lies with the most recent spinoff Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss and frankly, I was surprised by it.

Having been an avid watcher of the show for the last two years - I have noticed they featured all types of women - big women, small women, tall, short....everything. So what did they feel the need to separate this?

Here is what a few of my Facebook people had to say about it:

Leanne: "I love the idea behind it but why does it need it's own title? I would much rather see women of all sizes on one show instead of teaching young girls that bigger women need to be separated from the "normal" size women."

Alyssa: "I think although it may be to make a positive statement to theory viewers I think its almost exploiting them because of their size. We are all different shapes sizes and colors.but were are all brides that say yes to the dress."

And yeah, I get what they are trying to do - but making the idea it's OWN show probably isn't sending the message they want.

But  - decide for yourself and let me know what you think :)
