A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The messages include thriftiness and the idealization of weddings/marriage.
Positive Role Models
Brides are from a variety of backgrounds -- including pregnant brides, second marriages, etc. -- but all are looking for an affordable gown. Their budgets are based on what they can afford and/or their unwillingness to purchase anything at retail prices.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Occasionally the back of brides' bras are visible when trying on dresses. Some brides claim that they feel "sexy" in their dresses.

Products & Purchases
The series is a promotional vehicle for Vows Bridal Outlet, and features an endless parade of designer labels like Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Paloma Blanca, Jim Hjelm, Maggie Sottero, etc., and conversations about what they are valued at vs. what they are being sold for.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that I Found the Gown is very similar to the popular Say Yes to the Dress, but with a focus on discount gowns. The overall content is mild, but it will probably only appeal to viewers interested in weddings or related themes. Women's bra straps are sometimes visible while they are changing, and words like "crap" are sometimes audible. The series is a promotional vehicle for the store, and features lots of dress designer labels, including Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, and others.
Is It Any Good?
The show is similar to the bridal gown series Say Yes to the Dress in that it features women desperately looking for that perfect dress for their special day. But unlike SYTTD, much of the focus is on how good a deal the bride can get on their dress. It also offers a behind-the-scenes look at how a discount outlet can manage to sell gowns this cheaply, as well as the ways the store owners go about securing inventory.
It lacks some of the colorful characters that other bride-themed shows feature, but folks interested in these kinds of shows will probably be inspired by some of the deals they see here. But if watching women change in and out of wedding dresses isn't your thing, you might find yourself changing the channel.
