Ladies and gentlemen you are cordially invited to watch this month's edition of Take This Job and Love It.

So please take your seats because here is the bridal consultant.

Simply Elegant Gowns is one of State College's premiere bridal shops. Started by two sisters in 2006 this store has it all, including a new employee.

What was the first order of business? Prepping a gown to be preserved, which meant I needed a sharp eye.

Bridal consultants have to scan every inch of the dress for stains and then mark those stains with a sticker.

The only exception to that rule is the hem which the company expects to be dirty.

Once we found all the stains it was time to pack it up and ship it out.

On to task number two and I needed to hustle because I needed to find two wedding gowns and four dresses to accompany them. Oh, and narrow down a theme that tied them all together.

Ultimately I figured you couldn't go wrong with a Penn State theme. All that was left to do now was pick the dresses.

Then we had a full-fledge bridal emergency.

The bride to be’s wedding was in just two weeks. So we had to work fast finding a dress that looked like hers, pairing it up with a few of the veils on hand and sending her pictures online to see if we could put her wedding woes to rest.

A special thanks to Kristen and all the staff at Simply Elegant Gowns, be sure to visit them for all your wedding needs.
