About a month ago I went on the craziest, wildest, most extreme hunt for a wedding dress I’ve ever been a part of. Unfortunately, the dress search wasn’t my own; or for any of my close friends or family for that matter. I was down in Boston at Filene’s basement event where thousands of women from all over the world come to find their dream dress at bargain prices. Bulls have nothing on these ladies. And one lucky bride, Shann, had been chosen to be a part of this with help from the Rachael Ray show. That’s where I came in…a tie in to the Olympic Games and her own personal “runner” to help her find her perfect dress. It was madness as I’ve never seen before but in the end she found her dress and all was good in the world.
The episode aired today and while I knew in advance it was going to be on, I hesitated on putting out the bulletin beforehand. There was a chance it was going to be extremely cheesy and embarrassing and I didn’t know just how much of the 7 HOURS OF SHOOTING!!! would be aired. Luckily it was edited down to maybe five minutes with minimal speaking parts on my behalf and just a few gratuitous shots of me running around in a sports bra. Slightly cheesy? Yes. But not my most embarrassing public appearance to date. If you watch the clip you will notice that they call me Brianne and that they refer to me as a National Championship Runner, or something along those lines. I told them not to use “Olympic Runner” as was there preference and the other title is what they came up with instead. It really makes no sense but I’m sure only a few people on the planet will notice that.
Overall it was a fun experience and I had the opportunity to help someone find the dress of their dreams all while fighting with and stomping over other Bridezillas in the process. Not bad for a day’s work.
