There is only one reason to get up at 4 o'clock in the morning and turn on the television, and that's the dress. The well-kept secret of what Kate Middleton will wear when she weds Britain's Prince William early Friday morning (our time) will finally be revealed when she steps out of the limo with her father, Michael, and I want to see it in real time. No DVR for me. No "Dateline" recap. No Google photos. I want to be able to say I was there when the world got its first glimpse of Kate in her wedding dress.

As soon as my daughter got engaged, a wedding weight loss campaign was launched. Mine. She wasn't far behind me. She signed up for something called "cross fit," and she has been complaining of pain and soreness ever since. She might not be any thinner in October, but my guess is she'll be able to throw a kettle ball the length of the aisle, should it be necessary to do so. Rob Kardashian's exit from his sister Kim's wedding spectacle after the family reportedly ganged up on him about his heft is evidence that this misery isn't just for women anymore.

Modern wedding gowns come in various styles, colors and prices. But no matter what they look like, they all have one thing in common: the bride's sentimental attachment.It's because of this attachment that many brides choose to wear their mother's or grandmother's wedding dress.These heirloom gowns require special handling from the time they're removed from their storage containers to the time they're put back into them. And the older the dress, the more challenging the restoration and cleaning process.

LOS ANGELES -- Months of planning have gone into the wedding. It is going to be picture-perfect. Then, at the 11th hour, either the bride or bridegroom ducks out of the picture.What happens to the wedding gown? All that silk and lace? All that money?In the case of actors Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland, who said "we don't," a Beverly Hills shop is storing one surplus gown."It was ready for a final fitting," says Michelle Trafficante, a partner in Tyler Trafficante. Now, "everything's just sort of on hold."

It was so different from the first time. Some of the women polished off yardwork minutes before zipping into their wedding gowns, which had to be retrieved from crawl spaces, scooped off playroom floors or unscrewed from airtight preservation boxes where they'd been entombed for years. Oblivious children did not appear to notice that, on an ordinary weekend afternoon, Mom suddenly materialized in shiny white shoulder bows, sweeping the kitchen floor with a silken train instead of a broom.

What price do you put on love?The U.S. Customs Service tags it at $133.62. That's how much Jane L. Metcalf has been told she must pay to retrieve her mother's homemade wedding dress sent from her native Australia.Government actions left the bride from down under in tears after a customs agent in Los Angeles placed a value of $743 on the garment made by Miss Metcalf's grandmother for Miss Metcalf's mother's wedding 30 years ago.The Postal Service then refused to deliver the dress unless Miss Metcalf, 27, paid the duty of $133.

You can find the ads on almost any given day at the back of the classified section in this newspaper, somewhere between vending machines and wheelchairs. Wedding gowns. Size 2 to size 22. Some with veils, some without.Some used, some not."Never worn, never altered." That's the code, the lines we read between. Stood up? Bolted from the church like a runaway bride? Tragic accident, unexpected consequences? "Never worn, never altered."You know there's a story embedded in those four words, if only you dared to ask.We dared.

“Let's try that one first,” I said, pointing to the craziest wedding gown the saleswoman had selected for me. It was tight through the hips, with geometric ribbon designs that started on the bodice and trailed down through the choppy tulle skirt. It was an avant-garde kind of wedding dress you might wear if your reception was at Sidebar in Downtown Baltimore or the Renaissance Festival - a little punk, a little medieval. It wasn't remotely my style, but I wanted the first dress I tried on to be memorable and this certainly fit the bill.

A couple weekends ago, Enrique and I invited our friends over to his house for a barbeque. With everyone relaxed and having a good time, the conversation turned to our wedding plans. First, “So, what's your theme for the wedding?”  “The theme is us,” I said. Next came the follow-up, “What are your colors?” “Red and blue, but not patriotic. They're our favorite colors.” “Do you know what the guys and girls are wearing for the wedding?” I explained that the men are wearing tuxedos, but for the women, we would give each attendant our color choice and have her pick out a dress she felt best wearing.

The minute Janeen Simon found her perfect wedding dress, she knew she had to get another one. Her first dress - a Maggie Sottero diamond-white, sweetheart-style frock adorned in ruffles and anchored by an asymmetrical train - was stunning, but she imagined it was going to be difficult to maneuver in it on a hot August day. Plus, she wanted to dance and show off her rhinestone-encrusted Jimmy Choo heels. "I knew it would be hard to balance the dress and shoes on the dance floor," the 26-year-old Owings Mills resident said.

One of the many benefits of receiving that long awaited engagement ring is the ease of daily accessorizing. I have always admired the girls who can effortlessly and flawlessly pair the perfect necklace/scarf/belt with a simple outfit, instantly elevating it from boring to stylish. But as much as I compliment and admire these embellishment- savvy ladies, I don't foresee myself ever having the patience for that extra 30 seconds to latch onto my daily routine. I also have a small problem called "champagne taste on a beer budget" where almost every piece of jewelry that catches my eye is comically out of my price range.

Remember in Clueless when Dionne asked Cher if she were suffering from buyer's remorse and, looking horrified, Cher said no? Well lucky you, Miss Horowitz, because I certainly am.  Knowing nothing about wedding dress shopping, I was surprised when in February, a week after my engagement, my stepmom insisted we begin the search. We visited a total of two places, and I had my dress deposit down in less than a month.  I love my dress. I can't really detail it here because my fiance wisely reads this blog (Hi, Rob!

Q: When I got married, my mother wanted me to wear her wedding gown, which she had saved for that very purpose. I couldn't because I am much taller and bigger-boned than she is. Now I have a beautiful baby girl, and I am thinking of saving my wedding gown for her. Experience has taught me it's ridiculous. What should I do, sell my wedding gown?A: I'd say save it -- just in case. To get some professional advice I went to Kleinfeld's, the store in Brooklyn that has been catering to the needs of brides for more than 50 years.

Jill Andrews Bell may design wedding gowns, but she's the antithesis of a bride.In her Canton studio, she's more likely to wear black Converse sneakers and a skirt made of upholstery fabric than satin pumps or a silk sheath. "People look at me and they don't believe I make wedding dresses," says Ms. Bell, 26, who has worked in New York and London.But in the heart of the marrying season, she's more concerned about her creations than their creator. Some days, she's lucky to have time to throw on a T-shirt and shorts.
