Francesca Farago is one step closer to saying "I do."

After all, the Too Hot to Handle star, who is engaged to TikToker Jesse Sullivan, recently went wedding dress shopping for the first time. And luckily for fans, she's offering all of the dazzling details behind her experience at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City—yep, the bridal boutique from TLC'S Say Yes to the Dress.

"I was so excited to try on wedding gowns because I'd never done it before," Francesca exclusively told E! News. "I wanted to see which style looked best on me, so I tried on every type of dress I could find. Eventually, I found my favorite style."

Of course, the Perfect Match alum brought her hype team with her, noting that she was joined by her fiancé, friends and family members.

"It was such an emotional experience," Francesca shared, "that we all started crying."

And in true Francesca fashion, the bridal gown she ultimately chooses won't be for the faint of heart. As she put it, "It won't be everyone's cup of tea."

"Since I want something more unique," she explained, "I knew if everyone in the room loved a dress, then it wasn't the one for me."

Although the reality TV personality wants to wear a bold look for her and Jessie's big day, she also plans to take a classic route with her other outfit changes.

"I'm going to have three dresses," she revealed. "I'm thinking of going all out for the ceremony dress, while keeping the reception and after-party dresses more romantic and sleek."

While Francesca confirmed she found her rehearsal dinner dress, she's still on the hunt for her wedding-day look. "I'm going to go back for another appointment over Christmas," she said, "to keep looking and ask about customizing!"

Considering the influencer won't walk down the aisle until May 2024, she has plenty of time to say yes to the dress.

But until the Francesca and Jessie tie the knot next summer, keep scrolling to see the Netflix star's heartwarming moments during her dress shopping experience.
