This is Chrissy, and she's getting married very soon.

She'll be marrying her sweetheart, Josh, whom she's known for 11 years. Aww!

She thought it would be fun to try on some wedding dresses from Amazon, so she invited her friends (Jazzmyne, Sheridan, and Kristin) to come along as her bridal party.

They played a friendly game of "how much do you think each dress is worth?" Although they didn't know it yet, all of the dresses would be under $100. What?

Jazzmyne thought the first dress Chrissy tried on was beautiful. Kristin thought it was cute, and Sheridan didn't think it was anything special.

Kristin said, "It was, like, in the same zip code as her vibe, but not quite at the address that you wanted when you plugged it into Google Maps earlier."

Everyone was shocked to discover this dress was only $15!

Once Sheridan found that out, she thought the dress was more than okay for that price.

The second dress Chrissy modeled was a strapless number with a train that had a weird little pointy part in the boob area.

Jazzmyne thought the dress totally swallowed Chrissy like a sock. They all liked the train, but nobody loved the dress. Not even Chrissy.

When she revealed that the dress was $65, Sheridan was shocked because she thought it looked way more expensive.

Kristin said, "If you're only gonna wear a dress once, it doesn't need to be perfect. It just needs to be good enough for, like, six hours."

The next dress made all of Chrissy's friends immediately giggle. Kristin absolutely loved it because she thought it was cute, flattering, and classy.

Chrissy hated it. LOL! She felt like a wedding topper on a wedding cake. And there were strings hanging off the dress so it was definitely not very well constructed.

Once again, all the ladies were surprised to discover the dress was only $85.

Jazzmyne said, "Knowing that someone could spend so little money and be true to their aesthetic if they're into that vintage feel was really great to hear."

When Chrissy came out in the fourth dress, none of the ladies were feelin' it. They thought it was both boring and too much.

They thought it was the throwaway dress that they used to make bigger women wear because designers didn't bother making dresses for women with thicker bodies. Nope.

This one was $95. Sheridan pointed out that this type of dress had cost that much since 1997. Ha!

Chrissy said she was surprised by how bad it looked IRL because it looked so good online. Womp womp.

And for the fifth and final dress, it was as if three types of wedding dresses had been "Frankensteined" into one.

Chrissy said it was like the designers checked every box of things a wedding dress should have like the lace, a bow, and some sleeves.

This wedding dress turned out to be $95. Jazzmyne was four out of five when it came to guessing the right price of each dress.

Oh, and Kristin really liked this dress. Like a lot.

Sheridan said, "I think it's so awesome that people are buying their wedding dresses online."

Regardless of which dress Chrissy wears on her wedding day, they were all sure of one thing: She's going to make a beautiful bride.
