# something blue
The groom on Don't Tell The Bride dyed the wedding dress blue and made everyone VERY nervous
He did it in a big pot in his house. SCREAM!

AFTER THE CRAZINESS of the IKEA wedding last week, the latest episode of Don’t Tell The Bride proved that the grooms are not lacking in, erm… interesting ideas.

Bride Nikki dreamed of a luxurious day in a fancy venue – her fiancé Jamie envisioned a festival theme, and decided to hold the wedding in the middle of a ‘glamping’ park.

He did, however, go down the traditional route when selecting a beautiful €1500 wedding dress… then dyed it blue. In a big pot. In his house. ARGH!

His reasoning is kind of sweet: The couple met on the dating website Plenty of Fish, and he felt the blue dress would be a symbol of their beginnings.

“It’s either going to work or it’s ruined,” he fretted. You don’t say.

On the day before the wedding, a blindfolded Nikki was lead out to her mother and bridesmaids in the blue dress – and you could have cut the tension with a knife.

Serious squeaky bum time:

Amazingly, Nikki liked the dress – though she didn’t cop the significance of the colour at first: “I don’t think he really thought it out. I think he just likes blue.”

Despite all the surprises (including a trip to the ceremony by boat), both Nikki and the viewers agreed that Jamie had done a fantastic job on the day. A few tears were even shed:

Congratulations Nikki and Jamie! And thanks for making us cry at 8am on a Tuesday morning. :’)
