Kalana: I’M SHOWING THESE BRIDES
HOW TO GET THEIR DREAM LOOK WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK. THIS IS A SHOW FOR SMALL BUDGETS
AND BIG STYLE. ♪♪ TODAY I’M MEETING WITH LAURA. LAURA HAS HER DRESS,
BUT NOTHING ELSE. Laura: I’M LAURA, I’M 25,
AND I LIVE IN LAKEWOOD, FLORIDA. I’M MARRYING TYLER. HE IS 27. HE IS A PARAMEDIC,
A PHOTOGRAPHER AND EVERYTHING. TYLER AND I ARE GETTING MARRIED
IN CENTRAL PARK AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO WALK
TO OUR RECEPTION. THE THEME OF MY WEDDING COULD BE
DESCRIBED AS GOTHIC-GLAM. I REALLY LIKE THE 1920s
VINTAGE STYLE. I LOVE BLACK, AND MY FIANCé
KNOWS THAT VERY WELL, ‘CAUSE OF MY WONDERFUL
ENGAGEMENT RING, AND I WOULD LIKE
ALL MY ACCESSORIES AND MY LOOK TO KIND OF
REFLECT THAT. I DEFINITELY
CANNOT GO OVER $300. I’M SO EXCITED
TO MEET KALANA TODAY, AND I HOPE SHE HELPS ME
PULL OFF MY LOOK. -YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED!
-I AM. [ BOTH LAUGH ] OKAY. TELL ME.
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE? I LIKE BLACK
A WHOLE LOT. -MM-HMM.
-I’M VERY PALE. -HAVE A GOOD CONTRAST.
-YES. [ GIGGLES ] SO MY DRESS
IS VERY STRANGE. OKAY. IT’S BEADED AND GLAMOROUS
AT THE TOP, LONG SLEEVES… -OOH I LOVE LONG SLEEVES.
-…WITH THE RUFFLES. I KNOW. I KNOW.
-THAT’S FASHION RIGHT THERE. -EXACTLY! EXACTLY.
-YEAH. [ CHUCKLES ] AND YOU’RE GONNA BE
WALKING, BECAUSE YOU’RE
GONNA BE IN CENTRAL PARK? -YES.
-ARE YOU COMFORTABLE IN HIGH HEELS? OR DO YOU LIKE SOMETHING
A LOWER HEEL? -I LOVE HIGH HEELS.
-OKAY. I LIKE REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE,
BEAUTIFUL SHOES. -ME TOO.
-RIGHT? WE’RE MEANT
TO BE FRIENDS. I KNOW!
[ BOTH LAUGH ] SO,
BUT THAT’S THE PROBLEM. I’M GOING TO CENTRAL PARK
TO GET MARRIED, AND THEN OUR PHOTO SESSION
IS GONNA BE OUR WALK BACK TO
THE RECEPTION. OKAY. SO HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT
THE ELEMENTS? WHAT IF IT RAINS? YOU KNOW, YOU’RE COMING TO
NEW YORK FOR A WEDDING, AND IT COULD RAIN
ANY GIVEN DAY HERE. I WAS JUST HOPING
THAT IT WOULD BE PERFECT. -RIGHT.
-BUT I KNOW IT PROBABLY WON’T BE.
-OKAY. SO, NO, NO PLANS. SO WE NEED TO JUST PREPARE
FOR THAT. I THOUGHT IT WAS GONNA BE, LIKE,
SO BEAUTIFUL ON MY WEDDING DAY AND IT RAINED,
AND IT WAS SO COLD. SO YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE
YOU HAVE A BACKUP PLAN. DO YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS? ANYTHING
THAT YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT? HONESTLY, I JUST CHOPPED
ALL MY HAIR OFF, SO THAT. -MM. I LOVE YOUR HAIR LENGTH!
-THANK YOU! I MEAN, I THINK THAT ONE THING
THAT I’VE GOTTEN FROM YOU IS THAT YOU’RE FASHION FORWARD,
YOU LIKE TO HAVE A LOOK. AND I THINK THE SHORTER HAIR
WILL ACTUALLY GO WITH YOUR LOOK. I’M HOPING SO ‘CAUSE I DON’T
EVEN KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH IT NOW THAT IT’S THIS SHORT. -I LOVE IT. I GOT YOU.
-I NEED A LOT OF HELP WITH THAT. [ BOTH LAUGH ] I THINK A LOT OF WOMEN BUDGET
FOR THEIR DRESS, BUT THEY DON’T THINK ABOUT
ANYTHING ELSE. NOTHING ABOUT ACCESSORIES,
NOTHING ABOUT UNDERGARMENTS, AND IT POPS UP AND IT’S LIKE,
OH, MY GOSH. LAURA ONLY HAS $300
TO ACCESSORIZE HER GOTHIC-GLAM LOOK. SO I’M RELYING
ON VINTAGE FINDS AND DEPARTMENT-STORE MARKDOWNS
TO STAY WITHIN HER BUDGET. BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE NEGATIVE
SPACE AND THE SKIN SHOWING, I PULLED SOME OPTIONS
OF NECKLACES. HONESTLY I COULD USE
YOUR ADVICE ON THIS ONE. -OKAY.
-BECAUSE I’M TRYING TO STAY TRUE TO MY ENGAGEMENT RING
WHICH IS ROSE GOLD AS WELL SO. -ROSE GOLD AND BLACK.
-AND BLACK. YES. I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE GET
AFRAID OF MIXING METALS, BUT IT’S DEFINITELY SOMETHING
THAT I’M A FAN OF. I THINK IT’S SOMETHING
THAT LOOKS VERY FASHION FORWARD AND VERY UNIQUE. -I’M HONESTLY LOVING THAT.
-YOU ARE? OKAY. YEAH. DEFINITELY. THERE ARE SOME OPTIONS
OF BROOCHES. YOU CAN REALLY PLAY WITH THESE
AND KIND OF DESIGN THEM THE WAY YOU SEE FIT. VINTAGE BROOCHES ARE A GREAT
ACCESSORY FOR HER LOOK. SHE CAN PUT IT IN HER HAIR.
SHE CAN PUT IT ON HER SHOES. SHE CAN EVEN ATTACH IT
TO HER BOUQUET. I’VE NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED
PUTTING A BROOCH IN MY HAIR. -YEAH.
-SO I LOVE THAT IDEA. AND THEN EARRINGS. BECAUSE YOU HAVE
SO MUCH GOING ON, YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING
VERY SOFT AND DELICATE. YEAH, I’M DEFINITELY
NOT A HUGE FAN OF DANGLY. SOME OF THOSE STUDS
ARE GORGEOUS. SO NOW SHOES. I KNOW THAT YOU LOVE A HEEL.
-I DO. I KNOW
THAT YOU LOVE BLACK. NOW, THESE ARE A BIT
OVER-THE-TOP, BECAUSE THEY HAVE
THE BOW HERE, BUT WHAT YOU COULD DO
IS YOU COULD TAKE THIS OFF AND JUST HAVE, LIKE,
A LACE, SEXY PUMP. SOMETIMES YOU SEE SOMETHING
THAT’S FLATTERING, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING A BIT OFF. AND ONE LITTLE TWEAK
WILL MAKE IT PERFECT. YOU CAN GO WITH THE COMPLETE
OFF-WHITE SANDAL. YOU CAN USE A BROOCH,
YOU KNOW, A BLACK BROOCH, AND REALLY PLAY
AROUND WITH IT. YEAH, I LOVE THAT. JUST IN CASE IT RAINS,
I BROUGHT A BLACK RAIN BOOT. RAIN BOOT.
[ BOTH LAUGH ] I LOVE THAT! BUT I ACTUALLY THINK THESE
ARE SUPER CUTE. I LOVE THE SQUARE TOE.
I LOVE THE HEEL. SO THAT IS AN OPTION,
BUT THEY’RE BLACK, SO THEY’RE FLY. I’LL STILL BE LOOKING GOOD
IN THE RAIN. RIGHT. SO, I THINK WE HAVE
SOME GREAT OPTIONS HERE. LET’S TRY SOME OF THIS ON.
LET’S PLAY AROUND. AND I HAVE A HAIR
AND MAKE-UP TEAM HERE FOR YOU. YAY! SO WE CAN REALLY GET
A FEEL OF THE ENTIRE LOOK. ♪♪ I DIDN’T THINK I’D LIKE IT,
BUT I LIKE MY TOES SHOWING. -OKAY. OKAY.
-IT’S VERY COMFORTABLE. AND THESE ARE
MORE BLINGED OUT. SIMPLE. I LOVE THESE. -I LOVE THE LOOK…
-MM-HMM. …BUT THEY ARE VERY
UNCOMFORTABLE. THEY’RE UNCOMFORTABLE. OKAY.
SO LET’S TRY ANOTHER PAIR. ♪♪ THESE ARE FUN IF YOU WANTED
TO GO A LITTLE EDGY. BUT I WANT YOU TO
BE ABLE TO WALK. UNFORTUNATELY, MY FEET
ARE SO CLAUSTROPHOBIC. ♪♪ BECAUSE LAURA WANTS
THIS GOTH-GLAM LOOK, I THINK A BOLD EYE
AND A BOLD LIP IS THE WAY TO GO. ♪♪ I KNOW SHE WAS A BIT WORRIED
ABOUT HER NEW HAIRCUT, BUT I ACTUALLY THINK THE SHORTER
STYLE ADDED TO THE LOOK. ♪♪ LAURA’S READY FOR
HER FINAL REVEAL, AND I CAN’T WAIT TO
SEE WHAT SHE THINKS. AFTER COMBING THROUGH
VINTAGE ACCESSORIES, TRYING ON DOZENS OF SHOES,
AND A VISIT TO THE GLAM SQUAD, IT’S FINALLY TIME TO SEE LAURA’S
ACCESSORIZED GOTHIC-GLAM LOOK. -ARE YOU READY?
-I’M READY! TAKE A LOOK! AH! OH, MY GOD! YEAH! YOU DID IT! HOW DO YOU FEEL? I FEEL LIKE GOTHIC-GLAM. LET’S JUST TALK THROUGH
WHAT I DID. -OKAY.
-SO STARTING WITH YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP,
WE WENT VERY ROMANTIC WITH THE HAIR —
HALF UP, HALF DOWN. AND WE ACCESSORIZED IT
WITH A BROOCH. YOUR MAKEUP, OBVIOUSLY
WE WENT A LITTLE BIT MORE BOLD. -MM-HMM.
-WE DID A SMOKY EYE. WE DID THE BEAUTIFUL
MATTE BORDEAUX LIP, WHICH I FEEL LIKE
IS VERY YOU. -I LOVE IT.
-SO GORGEOUS ON YOU. AND I KNOW
YOU DON’T LOVE EARRINGS, BUT BECAUSE YOU WERE
REALLY BARE UP TOP, I WANTED TO GIVE YOU
JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING, SO THESE ARE VERY SIMPLE
DROP EARRINGS. THEY’RE $50. I DID NOT LIKE THE EARRINGS,
BUT NOW THAT I SEE THEM ON, AND I SEE THEM WITH THIS HAIR, IT JUST GOES
VERY NICELY TOGETHER. SO I REALLY LIKE THE EARRINGS. AND I KNOW WE TRIED ON
A BUNCH OF SHOES, BUT I REALLY WANTED TO MAKE SURE
THAT THE SHOE WAS VERY YOU. SO WENT IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION
WITH A BLACK SHOE, WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE. I TOOK OFF THE BOW THAT WAS
ORIGINALLY ON THIS SHOE, SO IT MADE IT VERY CHIC,
VERY SIMPLE, BUT VERY SEXY. ONCE I PICKED THE SHOES, EVEN THOUGH
SHE DIDN’T ASK FOR IT, I KNEW I HAD
THE PERFECT BAG FOR HER. THEN, JUST TO
TIE IT ALL TOGETHER, I FOUND A VINTAGE BLACK BAG
THAT I THINK IS A PERFECT COMPLIMENT
TO EVERYTHING. AND THIS BAG WAS $30. SO, THIS LOOK IS A COMBINATION
OF BARGAIN HUNTING AND VINTAGE. IT TOTALS OUT TO $185,
BUT THE KICKER IS, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE
PREPARED FOR THE ELEMENTS, SO I GOT YOU
A FEW ACCESSORIES. THE BLACK RAIN BOOTS,
WHICH I FEEL LIKE IS THE PERFECT COMPLEMENT.
-YES. AND A CLEAR UMBRELLA, WHICH WILL NOT COMPETE
WITH YOUR LOOK. IT WAS VERY THOUGHTFUL OF HER
TO THINK OF THE WEATHER AND MY WEDDING DAY. SO THROWING IN THE RAIN BOOTS
AND THE UMBRELLA WAS AWESOME. THIS IS $100, SO THE TOTAL
AMOUNT FOR THIS WHOLE LOOK IS $285. THAT’S AMAZING. I LOVE EVERYTHING. I FEEL SO PUT TOGETHER
AND GLAMOROUS AND JUST READY
FOR MY WEDDING DAY. ♪♪

  1. Broke-ass brides…so much more my speed that this "Say Yes to the Dress" crap. This my new binge. Also, I need that lip color.

  2. She says she likes black to contrast with her ‘very pale’ complexion at the beginning. She’s not pale at all. She actually looks to have a lovely sun kissed tan glow. Come to the north west girl, we can show you pale lol.

  3. Awww she looked amazing. I love vintage, and I loved all that she was wearing, such a pretty girl as well. I’d have loved to see the wedding!!

  4. i’m surprised so many people like the dress. it looked really amazing on her and suited her figure but it looks nothing like a wedding dress and the bottom looks like the dress equivalent of a TP’d tree on mischief night.

  5. I love the accessories, her makeup+hair and the top of the dress…but the bottom skirt, those shredded streamers…ew.

  6. Loved the dress for the most part, the accessories were good. The broach in her hair nailed it as well as the makeup. However a blah basic tshirt, ripped up jeans with no belt does not make her fashion forward. It was a pretty blah outfit and did nothing for her glowing personality.

  7. in the title when it says "vintage vamp bride" why did they say vamp she just likes the color black. I don't think shes a vampire.

  8. im getting married on halloween in a black dress and my budget is 250 why have i not been on this show lol

  9. Is it just me, or are the "S" sounds coming from both the Host and Especially the Bride REALLY INTENSIFIED???

  10. Wow Lara is literally me and honestly this episode is giving me so many ideas for my own (future, fingers crossed) wedding!!

  11. i love the look but rain boots and an umbrella 100 bucks??? That's kind of shady I really hope she didn't buy it

  12. I love that look. She would not have been any prettier if she had been in a Kleinfeld or Brides by Lauri ensemble. Proves u do not have to spend thousands on a dress u wear 1 time

  13. she is absolutely gorgeous but that dress looked like it was shredded by some animal. but if she feels good in it then it's her day her decision

  14. I saw Lara at the mermaid and pirate festival last year and she was the announcer for the mermaid costume contest.

  15. She didn't need a purse
    Should have spent that on a better necklace and a tiara probably. Umbrella was a good idea though

  16. when she said mixing metals is very 'fashion forward'. Gurl, 1st fashion rule is do not wear silver and gold metal together it's just doesn't match.

  17. Andrew MacLaine . $100. for Umbrella + Boots . 🤔This umbrella alone can’t worth $100. …🤭😱 ??
    U r on point with what a Stylist job is about 👍🏽
    By the way , the dress is a killer on her own. Not sure about some of those accessories … Not convince with the bag. Peace to everyone

  18. That what’s make a good stylist ! …. To think through the all day with an unpredictable weather. The stylist will be paid regardless of the numbers of items she chose for the bride. But if u want beautiful pictures on a rainy day it might worth the investment of those fashionista plastic boots (easy to wear after wedding) and umbrella ☔️🌂
