It's an exciting night for one Albany resident who will be featured on national television.

Crews for the popular show, 'Say Yes to the Dress,' filmed blissful bride Edwina McCormick as she shopped for the perfect wedding gown at Kleinfeld in New York City.

She will be featured on Friday night’s episode of TLC’s hit show.

“I'm just going to hope I don't have spinach in my teeth, or my forehead isn't shiny, I haven't seen the episode so I don't know what's going to be on it,” Edwina said.

And though she hasn’t seen it yet, FOX23 News got a sneak peak!

“It’s three months until my wedding, so it's crunch time,” Edwina said in one of the opening scenes of Friday’s episode.

The show captured last minute brides under deadline.

Show producers chose Edwina to be filmed last June, just three months before her September wedding.

Also featured on Friday’s episode is Edwina's entourage.

“Who do we have with us?” asked the dress consultant on the show.

Edwina answered, “My mom, my sister, my other sister, and my Maid of Honor.”

Looking back on the experience, Edwina said, “I will always remember that day, what it was like to drive in, everyone was so excited.”

She says her sister may have been the most excited of the bunch, and even lost her words when she finally met the show's star – Randy.

“She is obsessed with him, she couldn't believe she was meeting him, she was on the verge of tears, you would have thought she was getting married,” Edwina said laughing.

Edwina says aside from the lights, cameras, and production crew, her appointment at Kleinfeld was a true shopping experience - thanks in large part, to Randy.

“He did pull me aside and say, ‘I know there are a lot of cameras around but this is your wedding, so pick the dress you feel comfortable with,’” Edwina recalled.

As Edwina and her husband, James, watched the commercials for Friday’s episode, they're trying to figure out just how it feels to see themselves on national television.

“It is crazy,” James said smiling.

“I think it will be interesting to just sit back an watch what was going on at that time and really ask myself why I waited until three months out to buy a dress,” Edwina laughed. “But you know what? It all worked out and I wouldn’t change anything for the world, it was amazing.”

Edwina’s episode will air Friday, June 29th, at 9 p.m.
