Ballerinas Take Over "Say Yes to the Dress"

March 4, 2015

Ballerina brides are the bestest brides
, amirite? The three qualities that make for a beautiful bride—elegance, poise and a killer bod—happen to be qualities ballet dancers have in spades. And few people can rock elaborate wedding gowns as well as ballerinas, who’ve spent their lives performing in similarly elaborate costumes.

That’s why we’re stupid excited that Richmond Ballet dancer Valerie Tellmann is scheduled to appear on TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” tomorrow night. A gorgeous dancer trying on a whole bunch of gorgeous dresses? We’re in. We’re wayyyy in. Tellmann is also bringing fellow RB dancers Maggie Small and Lauren Fagone along with her, which means Kleinfeld is about to experience a veritable ballerina takeover.

Tellmann had a sort of “SYTTD” trial run a few months back, when she was the model bride for a Style Me Pretty ballet-themed wedding shoot . How perfect is that? (photo by Jessica Maida for Style Me Pretty)

This isn’t the first time a pro dancer has appeared on “SYTTD,” btw. Last fall, Broadway baby Sutton Foster said yes to a seriously high-drama (naturally) dress, and was (also naturally) utterly delightful. While you’re waiting for Tellmann’s episode to air—tomorrow night at 10:30 pm EST on TLC!—take a look at Foster’s bridal moment:
