Entertainment Tonight caught up with the soon to be sisters-in-law at an Alfred Angelo fashion show, and then watched them try the dresses on for themselves.Â Discussing their bridal style, DeAnna said, “I’m going mermaid.”Â Holly is opting for the fairy-tale route.Â “I’m going more of like a Cinderella dress, ball gown style.”Â When asked if they could both end up choosing the same dress, DeAnna laughed, “We think that could be a problem.Â We’ll duke it out.”Â Holly revealed of the excursion, “I’ve never tried on a wedding dress in my entire life so I can’t wait to just put the first one on.Â I’m hoping that it’s the whole beginner’s luck thing and the first one I put on, I fall in love with.”
Once the ladies pick their dresses, they will continue to plan their double wedding.Â DeAnna says, “We’re hoping that the four of us still love each other when all of this is done.”Â She then got serious and said, “It’s gone from being best friends, to now being like sisters.”
