Most brides have specific ideas about their wedding dress, such as style, fabric and design, but bride-to-be Susanne Eman was also particular about another facet: color.
"I like an off-whitish, not completely white. Because if I wear completely white, I guarantee I'm going to spill something on it," Eman told Inside Edition.
That could happen to any bride, but, to be fair, the odds of making a mess on a wedding gown increase exponentially when you're 800 pounds like Eman, whose average caloric intake is 30,000 calories a day.
Eman is currently on a quest to become the fattest woman ever, beating the 1200 pound mark once held by Rosalie Bradford, who died in 2006, but what good is a goal if you don't have someone to share it with?
Luckily, Eman found love recently with Parker Clack, a 35-year-old chef she met on the Internet, and she is having fun getting ready for the big day.

"Oh, he's wonderful. He loves to cook," she told Inside Edition. "That helps out. His food is soooo good."
But preparing for the big day meant going to a bridal shop to pick the right dress -- one that wouldn't show food stains.
Making the dress will be a monumental task for seamstress Judy Goff, who estimates Eman's gown will be much larger than any bridal gown she's made -- or seen.
"Okay, we have about 15 feet here and we need 45 feet, so about three times this amount to complete her dress," Goff told Inside Edition.
For the record, Eman's gown will have to fit around her 107-and-a-half inch waistline -- that's nine feet around.
Although it would possible for Eman to go the whole nine yards with her dress -- literally and figuratively -- she is taking some steps to make it so Goff doesn't run out of fabric entirely.
"I want to go sleeveless because it's going to be summer time," said Eman.
