Melissa Rycroft Chooses Alfred Angelo for Her Wedding Dress
For her upcoming wedding to Tye Strickland, former Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars star Melissa Rycroft will walk down the aisle wearing an Alfred Angelo bridal gown. “It’s so cliché you always hear everyone say ‘you know it when you see it,’ and absolutely it was the first dress I saw and the very first dress I tried on, and I just knew it. I love it,” said Rycroft on Good Morning America. The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has not revealed the details of her dress, but said the theme of her wedding would be “laid back and fun — that’s me. I’m not stuffy or anything like that.” Alfred Angelo designer Michael Shettel, who also designed The Biggest Loser winner Michelle Aguilar’s wedding gown, is honored the reality star selected one of his gowns. “Melissa’s a beautiful woman, inside and out. She has a fabulous personality, and I am thrilled to work with her for her very special day,” said Shettel. Rycroft proved her resilience after Bachelor star Jason Mesnick broke off their engagement on national TV — she started dating Strickland, her hometown sweetheart, soon after and was planning their wedding six months later.
