You might just think this is a show about going out and getting a dress, but there are actually a lot of wacky secrets that go on behind-the-scenes on Say Yes To The Dress.

1. There are rules to this show, and they are stringent.

TLC

You may (falsely) believe that people just go on this show and it's all la-de-da, pick a dress and leave, but there are a lot of rules when it comes to being on the set of SYTTD.

There are rules to this show, and they are stringent (CONT)

TLC

For starters, one bride said that there are rules about what you bring, and even what you're wearing!

For example, no one was allowed to wear pink because it would clash with the background.

2. Alexandra Godino Sued The Show

TLC

There was a very complicated series of events, but long story short Godino didn't want her episode to premiere before her wedding because she wanted her dress to be a surprise.

Needless to say, TLC aired her episode before her wedding.

3. The Narrator Goes In Blind

TLC

As in, the narrator doesn't actually see the dresses that he's narrating about. Weird, I know, but it's something about the sequence of how things are produced.

Hollywood is so weird.

4. They Have Faced Fraud

TLC

Alright so get this, a woman named Emily comes on the show and buys a $6,500 gown. After all is said and done, it's discovered that the guy who paid for it (the husband) paid with ill-gotten gains.

As in, money he got through fraudulent means.

5. Not All The Dresses Are Shown

TLC

Obviously, a lot of the stuff you see on the show has to be cut for time. If they didn't, you'd see like 9 hours of raw footage!

They just pick and choose the best dresses in the show or the best moments.

6. Oh yes, they were sued twice

TLC

This time, it was by a woman named Randi who sued them because after some alterations were done to the dress she bought on the show, it was ill-fitting and honestly, a huge mess.

7. Drama Is Fabricated

TLC

Well, this is a reality show after all, and people aren't just going to watch for the pretty dresses.

No, the producers create a bunch of drama so that the episodes are more interesting.

8. The Kleinfeld Shop Isn't What It Looks Like On TV

TLC

You know what they say, the camera adds ten-inch– er, I mean poun– er, I mean 10 square meters.

What I'm trying to say (with much difficulty) is that the real-life Kleinfeld store is actually much smaller than it looks. With a combination of clever camerawork and sneaky angles they make it look bigger.

9. If you're in the store, you might be on the show

TLC

Not in the way you're hoping for, though.

You won't be the center of attention, but you might just get to be in the background. It's like a participation prize!

10. The Actual Store Is Insane

TLC

When people aren't filming in the store, there are a lot of other brides that want to check out the now world-famous Kleinfeld store.

Which means the place is a zoo.

The Actual Store Is Insane (CONT)

There are reports of brides competing for mirror space, dresses and even places to walk around!

You'll be shoulder to shoulder with other brides if you choose to visit Kleinfeld, so be careful!

11. They'll Probably Mention A Pnina Dress In Most Episodes

TLC

Not only because it's one of the best selling dresses on the show, not because the designer sometimes shows up, but because they also tend to be some of the most expensive.

12. Where Do They Keep All Their Inventory?

TLC

Considering the shop isn't as big as it is seen on TV, where do you think they keep their vast inventory?

Well, the answer might surprise you: they are in the ceiling.
