Camille: The Glam Bride | Brides on a Budget


Kahlana:
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 CAMILLE,
WHO’S LOOKING FOR A SECOND LOOK. HI. MY NAME’S CAMILLE.
I’M 26, AND I’M FROM NEW JERSEY. I AM MARRYING CODY,
MY BEST FRIEND. CODY AND I MET
AT CHEERLEADING CAMP IN 2011. HE DOESN’T REMEMBER,
BUT IT’S FINE. WE MET, AND OUR RELATIONSHIP KIND OF FLOURISHED
FROM THERE ON AFTER. I’M LOOKING FOR A SECOND LOOK
FOR THE RECEPTION, MEANING THE DRESS,
SPARKLY SNEAKERS, EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
FOR A TIGHT BUDGET OF $400 AND/OR BELOW. I’M REALLY HOPING
KAHLANA CAN HELP ME. HI, CAMILLE.
I’M KAHLANA. SO, TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FIANCé.
HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET? WE WERE BOTH RECRUITED
TO TRY OUT FOR THE UNIVERSAL
CHEERLEADERS ASSOCIATION. THAT’S KIND OF WHERE
OUR RELATIONSHIP BLOOMED. WE ACTUALLY GOT ENGAGED
AT THE SAME CHEERLEADING CAMP A YEAR LATER. SO, CHEERLEADING IS REALLY
A BIG PART OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP. YEAH, SO, I HAVE MY WEDDING
DRESS, AND I’M REAL EXCITED. IT HAS A GREAT SHAPE,
BUT DURING THE RECEPTION, I WANT TO DO A SECOND LOOK
THAT WOULD ALLOW ME TO HAVE A FLEXIBILITY TO RUN AROUND,
GO CRAZY DURING THE WEDDING, AND, YOU KNOW, DO BACKFLIPS
IF I WANTED TO. THERE ARE ABOUT
20, MINIMUM, CHEERLEADERS WHO ARE
GOING TO BE THERE. OH, WOW. SO, WE NEED
TO DO A PYRAMID. SO, I’M USUALLY DOWN
ON THE GROUND HOLDING THE FEET, BUT THIS IS MY DAY TO SHINE,
SO I TOLD EVERYONE, “GET READY,
‘CAUSE I’M ABOUT TO GO UP.” [ LAUGHING ] OKAY.
AND DO YOU HAVE A COLOR IN MIND FOR WHAT YOU WANT YOUR SECOND
DRESS TO BE? I WAS THINKING SOMETHING ALONG
THE LINES OF ALSO IVORY OR DOING CABERNET, WHICH WOULD
MATCH THE BRIDESMAIDS’ DRESSES. SO, MORE SO CUTESY
AS OPPOSED TO SEXY. EXACTLY. RIGHT. I’M NOT REALLY, LIKE,
THE GIRLY-GIRL TYPE THAT WEARS
A LOT OF DRESSES. BUT YOU’RE
A CHEERLEADER! YEAH, CORRECT.
VERY TRUE. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING
ABOUT UNDERGARMENTS? SO, THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION,
AS WELL, BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENED WAS I DIDN’T REALLY THINK
ABOUT THAT, AND I WAS JUST LIKE, “WHOEVER’S DOWN THERE,
I’M SORRY.” WELL, WE’LL SEE
WHAT WE CAN DO. KAHLANA’S
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, SO I’M JUST EXCITED FOR HER
TO USE HER EXPERTISE AND TELL ME,
“YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS IS GONNA WORK
FOR YOUR LOOK.” I NEED SOMETHING THAT’S GOING TO
BE ABLE TO HOLD EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY IN MY BUST AREA BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO BE
DOING STUNTS, FLIPS, EVERYTHING
YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE. CAMILLE IS
A COMPLETE CONTRADICTION. SHE SAYS SHE’S NOT GIRLY, BUT SHE WANTS SPARKLES
AND GLITTER AND RIBBONS, AND, I MEAN,
THAT’S ALL VERY FEMININE TO ME. CAMILLE ONLY HAS $400
FOR A HEAD-TO-TOE SECOND LOOK, SO I’M RELYING ON DEPARTMENT
STORE MARK-DOWNS, ONLINE SALES, AND D.I.Y. PROJECTS
TO WORK WITHIN HER BUDGET. ♪♪ THE FIRST OPTION,
IT’S NOT IN A COLOR. IT’S IN WHITE
BECAUSE YOU ARE THE BRIDE. I LOVE THIS DRESS BECAUSE IT HAS
THE HIGH/LOW DETAIL THAT YOU WANT, BUT IT ALSO HAS
THIS HIGH NECK, IT’S HALTER. THE BACK IS OPEN. THERE’S A STRAP,
SO YOU MAY OR MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO CARTWHEELS
IN THIS. I, HONESTLY,
REALLY LOVE THIS ONE. I DO LIKE
THE HIGH NECK. I LIKE THE DETAILS
IN THE TOP AND HOW IT JUST FLOWS
AT THE BOTTOM. THEN I FOUND
A SIMPLER OPTION. THIS IS IN ROSE GOLD,
BUT IT HAS THE SHINE, THE SPARKLE,
THE METALLIC ASPECT. IT HAS THE SHEER PANEL
IN THE FRONT, AND IT LOOKS VERY SIMPLE,
BUT WHAT WE CAN DO IS WE CAN TAKE A BELT…
PUT IT HERE, AND IT REALLY JUST KIND OF
JAZZES IT UP A BIT. AND THIS IS DEFINITELY,
YOU KNOW, VERY FEMININE. IT DOESN’T HAVE THE DRAMA
THAT YOU MIGHT WANT, BUT IT’S AN OPTION. RIGHT. I NEVER REALLY DONE
ANYTHING WITH SHEER OR SWOOP, TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM
HIGHLIGHTING THE BUST, BUT, AGAIN,
DEFINITELY OPEN TO IDEAS. I’M SO GLAD CAMILLE IS OPEN
TO TRYING ON DRESSES THAT ARE OUTSIDE
HER COMFORT ZONE. HAVING AN OPEN MIND IS KEY
WHEN SEARCHING THE SALE RACK. AND THEN I ALSO FOUND
A BALL-GOWN OPTION. NOW, THIS IS
A BIT LONGER. IT’S ALSO LIGHTWEIGHT,
BUT THIS IS STRAPLESS, SO, AGAIN, WE’D HAVE TO FIND
A REALLY GREAT BRA, BUT IT’S
MORE OF A GOWN. I REALLY LOVE
THIS ONE. I THINK THIS ONE
BRINGS TOGETHER THE “YOU’RE STILL
IN A WEDDING DRESS, YOU’RE STILL IN A BALL GOWN,”
BUT CHANGING IT UP WITH A COLOR. ♪♪ WELCOME TO
SNEAKER HEAVEN. [ LAUGHS ] I GOT HIGH-TOPS, I GOT LOW-TOPS,
SPARKLES, SHIMMER, GLITTER. THIS ONE HERE IS
A D.I.Y. PROJECT, ‘CAUSE IT’S JUST
A WHITE CANVAS SHOE, AND I TOOK RHINESTONES
AND GLUED THEM ON. AND I LIKED THIS BECAUSE YOU CAN
KIND OF CONTROL IT, IT’S CUSTOM-MADE,
NO ONE ELSE WILL HAVE IT. YEAH. NO, I HONESTLY,
LIKE, REALLY LOVE THE SIMPLICITY OF IT AND THE
FACT THAT I CAN MAKE IT MY OWN. SIMPLE D.I.Y. CUSTOMIZATIONS ARE
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS A BRIDE ON A BUDGET CAN DO TO GET A LOOK
THAT’S UNIQUE AND AFFORDABLE. I MEAN, AND THIS OPTION
IS MULTI-COLOR. IT’S A BASIC RAINBOW
OF COLOR. THE SHOELACE IS REALLY
LIKE A RIBBON, SO IT’S REALLY FEMININE
AND FUN. VERY FESTIVE AND VERY, LIKE,
CHEERLEADING SPIRIT. IT REALLY IS.
THAT’S AWESOME. I ALSO PULLED
UNDERGARMENT. YOU CAN DO
A BURGUNDY SHORT, OR YOU CAN JUST GO WITH IT
AND GO FOR GLITTER AND SPARKLE. THOSE ARE AWESOME. I MEAN, TAKE A LOOK.
[ LAUGHS ] YES! I MEAN, WHO DOESN’T WANT
TO LOOK AT THAT. YEAH. ♪♪ WITH CAMILLE,
IT WAS ABOUT COLOR, IT WAS ABOUT COMFORT,
FIGURE FLATTERY. I KNOW CAMILLE HAS
SOME CONCERNS ABOUT HER BUST, BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT FINDING
THE RIGHT FIT. CAMILLE, ARE YOU READY? YES. OKAY, COME ON OUT. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WOW! OH, MY GOSH.
TAKE A LOOK. OH, MY GOD. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE
THIS DRESS. I FEEL SO WONDERFUL AND REALLY,
REALLY COMFORTABLE. IT’S, LIKE,
HOLDING EVERYTHING IN. IT IS. DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU
COULD DO A CARTWHEEL IN THIS? I THINK THAT
IF THE MOMENT CAME UP, I ABSOLUTELY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO
A CARTWHEEL AND ALSO STUNT. I LOVE A STUNT. SO, WITH THE WHITE DRESS,
I LOVE THE WAY IT FIT ON HER. I THOUGHT
IT LOOKED INCREDIBLE. I THOUGHT IT HELD HER IN
IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES. I LOVE THE DETAIL
WITH THE NECKLINE. I THINK SHE WAS LEANING AWAY FROM HAVING A WHITE DRESS
FOR HER SECOND LOOK, BUT I WANTED HER TO SEE IT
AS AN OPTION. DING, DING, DING! I’M NOT ONE TO SHOW CLEAVAGE, SO
I’M KIND OF UNCOMFORTABLE, AND FOR SURE EVERYONE
WOULD GET A SHOW IF I TIRED TO DO
SOME CRAZY THINGS ON THE FLOOR. SO, I TRIED ON
THE ROSE-GOLD DRESS EVEN THOUGH I WAS
VERY HESITANT TO DO SO. ONCE I TRIED IT ON,
I REALLY NOTICED THAT IT COMPLEMENTED MY CURVES, AND IT MADE ME LOOK
REALLY, REALLY GREAT, AND IT KIND OF HAD
A SEXY ASPECT TO IT, SO I’M SO HAPPY
THAT I TRIED IT ON. I’M EXCITED.
ROUND 3. OH, MY GOD. AND FOR THOSE
BACK HOME. OH, WOW.
THOSE POCKETS. THEY HAVE POCKETS. I LOVE IT, AND I CAN
STUFF SNACKS IN THE POCKETS. [ LAUGHS ] ♪♪ Kahlana:
FOR CAMILLE’S BIG DAY, I WANT HER TO HAVE HAIR
AND MAKEUP THAT WILL LAST THROUGH CHEERS
AND BACKFLIPS. ♪♪ WE PULLED HER HAIR UP
TO KEEP IT OFF OF HER FACE. WE WENT WITH A SOFT SMOKY EYE
AND A BORDEAUX LIP TO SET IT UP. ♪♪ ♪♪ CAMILLE’S GLAM LOOK IS READY
FOR HER FINAL REVEAL. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE
IF SHE LOVES IT AS MUCH AS I DO. ♪♪ Kahlana: AFTER RACKS OF DRESSES,
D.I.Y. PROJECTS, AND A VISIT TO THE GLAM SQUAD, IT’S FINALLY TIME TO SEE
CAMILLE’S GORGEOUS SECOND LOOK. OKAY! OKAY! OKAY, SHOULD I LOOK?
3, 2, 1. OKAY, COME ON.
TAKE A LOOK. OH, MY GOD! OH, MY GOD!
THIS LOOKS SO GREAT! OH, MY GOD.
THIS IS SO INCREDIBLE. I LOVE THE WAY
THIS DRESS MOVES. I FEEL SO PRETTY. OH, MY GOD.
YOU LOOK SO PRETTY. OH, MY GOD. MY HAIR. OH, MY GOD.
ARE YOU GONNA CRY ON ME? SORRY, MY EMOTIONS ARE
OUT OF CONTROL. NO, YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL.
GET IT TOGETHER, CAMILLE. YOUR BRIDESMAIDS ARE
WEARING BORDEAUX, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY,
YOU ARE THE STAR, SO I REALLY WANT YOU
TO SHINE. WE DID PUT YOU
IN THE BORDEAUX SHORTS, SO YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT
OF THE BORDEAUX UNDERNEATH. I JUST LOVE
THE D.I.Y. SNEAKERS. I SWAPPED OUT THE SHOELACES
FOR A CREAM RIBBON. I THINK IT JUST KIND OF
ELEVATES IT AND DRESSES IT UP. IT WAS SO GREAT
WORKING WITH CAMILLE. SHE SEEMS SO HAPPY
WITH HER LOOK. SHE LOVED EVERYTHING,
SO THAT MADE ME HAPPY. I THINK SHE FELT LIKE
A COMPLETE PRINCESS. I’M KIND OF
AT A LOSS FOR WORDS. I’M SO HAPPY
WITH HOW EVERYTHING TURNED OUT. I’M SO HAPPY! THE BEST PART IS THE WHITE DRESS
WAS ON SALE FOR $80, THE SNEAKERS
WITH THE D.I.Y. WERE $40, THE UNDERSHORTS
WERE $10, AND I ADDED SOME JEWELRY
FOR $30. THE FINAL LOOK
CAME TO $160. OH, MY GOSH! I AM SO HAPPY. I’M HONESTLY
COMPLETELY SHOCKED WITH HOW EVERYTHING
CAME TOGETHER. KAHLANA WAS ABSOLUTELY
INCREDIBLE. I COULDN’T HAVE ASKED
FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE TODAY. ♪♪ ♪♪

  1. how is she a cheerleader? She is way too chunky…she is the type that gets too comfortable in a relationship and gains a bunch of weight. Feel bad for her future husband.

  2. Where was this show when i got married. I would've totally worn sneakers and this style dress. Cute, comfortable and saving tons of money yes☺

  3. People saying that she should have chosen a certain dress because it made her look slimmer.. tf? Not every damn girl wants to look smaller. Girls that are skinny can love themselves while they’re skinny and big girls can love themselves while they are big. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder guys 👏🏼

  4. I sorta wish they had attached that cool belt thing to the white dress, but maybe it wouldn't have turned out as good as I imagine

  5. I absolutely love the final choice. It’s what I would have picked for the second dress and shoes! Which I would have done that with white converse with the ribbon laces!!

  6. My dress, makeup, shoe, photography, and the grooms suit, shoes, belt, pin shirt and styling hair, all done (and more) for 600$.

  7. Sorry but this neckline cut doesn't suit her body type at all. It makes her shoulders wider . Beautiful bride but bad dress choice.

  8. I have very broad shoulders like her, and would never wear a halter neck because it brings a lot of attention to it..

  9. Camille is so pretty, bubbly and fun. I love how she and her fiance' met, and that they have so many interesting things to enjoy together. Many blessings to them both.

  10. WOW!!! Absolutely Awesome dress and accessories!!! Love love love the shoes…. Best Wishes to you Camille on your marriage to your BEST Friend!!! YAY!!! Excellent JOB Lana!!

  11. This stylist nails the look and hits below budget every time. So impressed by her looks she puts together and the amount of details she thinks of that pull it all together. Love love 💕

  12. Man that steven deserves to be gassed, what a horrible human being a fucking lazy land whale. But the others deserves congrats <3

  13. This stylist is incredible! She looks lovely, still bridal but pretty, fun & active. And when you have a naturally big bust & some extra kgs, it’s very difficult to look slim in most silhouettes, especially short dresses. The girls that buy big boobs, usually have skinny frames to stack them on so not as many issues. She looks like she’ll really enjoy her reception. Wish we could see her wedding dress too though

  14. Most of their suggestions are far more amazing yet very affordable. I don’t often see brides pairing their wedding dresses with sneakers, but it turned out well for her.
