IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Pretended To Be Engaged To Try On $4,000 Designer Wedding Dresses

It started because of a weekend marathon of "Say Yes To The Dress."

I was visiting my friend Julia in Pasadena, and while window shopping, we'd lusted over the designer dresses in a boutique we weren't allowed to enter without an appointment. So when we got home and "Say Yes To The Dress" was still on, Julia suggested we make one.
