Watch Diana DeGarmo Find Her Dream Wedding Gown

11/30/2012 at 09:00 AM ET

Some women take ages to find the perfect wedding dress, but for Diana DeGarmo, it was love at first sight.

“It stole my heart from the second I put it on,” the American Idol star says in the clip above.

DeGarmo, who became engaged to fellow Idol finalist Ace Young on the show’s season finale, recently visited Renée’s Salon on Brides of Beverly Hills (airing Nov. 30 on TLC), and immediately found what she was looking for.

Considering that this was the first wedding dress DeGarmo had tried on, the singer and Broadway actress struck gold: the $6,000 Sareh Nouri gown, accented with lace flowers, had everything she wanted in a dress.

“It had the beautiful sweetheart neckline, it had lace,” she says, and, for the self-described “rhinestone cowgirl at heart,” it featured “just a little bit of bling.”

In fact, the dress had DeGarmo tearing up at its beauty. And, she says, she rarely cries.

“For me it’s not about how much you spend on the dress, it’s about how you feel in the dress,” she says. Judging by her reaction, she made the right choice. Catch DeGarmo on Brides of Beverly Hills tonight at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.

Elsa: Ellen Pompeo got married in New York City’s City Hall with Michael Bloomberg as a witness, if I recall correctly.

Kathy Griffin had all of the items at her wedding donated, then donated the value of it (about 60K) to 2 charities. She also had her guests provide donations instead of accepting gifts.

Lori on

She will make a beautiful Bride and Ace a handsome Groom!

Elsa, I think Matt Damon got married at city hall. I agree with you, though, and not just about celebrities. I know plenty of ordinary people who spend huge amounts on weddings and then end up divorcing after less than 2 years. I think those people get caught up in wedding fever and don’t consider whether they actually want to be married.

I like the dress. She has good taste.

Kate on

The bangs are so distracting and not complimenting her. It’s all I see when I look are her.

Pamterps on

$6000???!!! And she doesn’t want to spend a lot of money? I got my wedding dress on Ebay for $80 and it was amazing.

Samantha on

I love it and Diana’s beautiful in it. Happiness always to Diana and Ace.
