Amy Roloff is tying the knot with fiance Chris Marek in less than a month, and on this week’s episode of Little People, Big World, she went wedding dress shopping with her best friends.
Tonight’s episode of LPBW shows Amy and her best friends, Lisa and Deb, shopping for wedding dresses at Charlotte’s Weddings & More in Portland, Oregon.
When the trio arrived at Charlotte’s, Lisa had Amy wear a tiara that read, “Bride” and a sash that said, “Bride to be,” as she tried on gowns.
Amy Roloff found wedding dress shopping ‘awfully daunting’
“Okay, this still just feels so weird, you guys, you know?” Amy said to her friends as Lisa helped put on the tiara and the sash, while Deb took photos.
Amy, Lisa and Deb wasted no time hitting the racks of dresses and finding ones for Amy to try on. But although there were tons of gowns from which to choose, Amy found the process “daunting.”
“Picking out a wedding dress is awfully daunting. Every bride, you know, I think whether young or old, or, you know, wants to feel good in a dress … wants to, you know, be the star of the event, of course,” Amy confessed during her solo interview.
“I look at a lot of the styles and a lot of them would not work on me, being a little person. I don’t like a really skin-tight dress, but I also don’t like one that’s so billowing, because [little people] have such a short body and short legs and arms,” Amy explained about the trouble finding a gown to fit properly.
Amy’s BFFs Lisa and Deb came along for support and suggestions
Amy tried on her first dress option, and when she came out from the dressing room, Lisa and Deb were impressed. The dress looked beautiful on Amy, but she had some reservations about how it fit.
Luckily, Lisa and Deb were there to not only offer their support but also to give Amy two more sets of eyes to point out things she may not see herself.
“The good thing about having Lisa and Deb here is that they do see other different styles that they think may look good on me. Even though I had never thought of that, you never know, ” Amy told the cameras from inside the bridal shop.
Amy’s goal was to find a dress that “fits Amy,” not that “Amy is trying to fit into a dress.” Amy tried on four dresses, and each one of them impressed Lisa and Deb, making Amy’s decision even harder.
According to an old wives tale, a husband seeing his wife’s dress before the wedding is considered bad luck. So when Lisa asked Amy if she planned on letting Chris see her dress before they tied the knot, Amy decided to stick with tradition and answered, “Right now, I’m still saying no.”
Will Amy and Chris’s wedding be filmed for LPBW?
LPBW fans will certainly be looking forward to Amy and Chris’s wedding, which Zach and Tori strongly suggested will be filmed for the show.
Little People, Big World airs on Tuesday nights at 9/8c on TLC and Discovery Plus.
