Mara Urshel, co-owner of the famous New York City bridal boutique Kleinfeld, where brides on the TLC show go to "say yes" to their dress, warns "single bridezillas" that putting the cart too far before the horse can be a foolish decision.
"Attitudes change, weight changes, styles change," said Urshel. "So to do that [plan a wedding] way ahead of your wedding date, that is going to be a very difficult thing."
"It may be very fool-hearted, and expensive," she said.
Richter, for one, says she has a plan to make sure that her wedding dreaming does not overtake the reality of marriage.
"I've made myself a promise that for every hour I spend wedding planning, that I'm going to spend an equal amount of time working towards the marriage," she said.
