Season 15 premieres on a new night Saturday, February 25th at 8/7c
A decade ago, TLC brought weddings to life with SAY YES TO THE DRESS, and the Kleinfeld crew is still bringing brides the best dresses in the business, making this milestone moment bigger and better than ever. Premiering on a new night, Saturday, February 25th at 8/7c, TLC brings more brides and more drama to the Kleinfeld floor in this celebratory season. From outrageous dresses for underwater weddings to mothers of the bride stealing the spotlight, Randy Fenoli and the team of Kleinfeld consultants have their hands full with countless out-of-the-box demands. Also, last season, newcomer Shay, the first male consultant at Kleinfeld, came to make his mark on the bridal world, and his approach resulted in some turbulence with Randy. This season viewers step onto the bridal floor to see if they can really work together…or not.
Some season highlights include Grammy-nominated singer Elle King coming in to find her perfect rocker-chic gown, and notoriously outspoken reality star Omarosa searching for her perfect, but not white wedding dress. Online sensation, Claudia Oshry aka Girl with No Job, brings her comedic relief to the dress shopping process, but her search for a dress with sleeves is not an easy one for consultant, Lisa. This season is full of surprises with brides requesting dresses to run marathons in, two-piece dresses for an ocean wedding, a dress for a Grand Canyon helicopter wedding and more. Between the seemingly impossible requests and new consultants at Kleinfeld, the team is still determined to help more brides than ever.
Also this season, Randy heads out of the salon to surprise a Baton Rouge bride who lost her home and beloved wedding dress in a damaging flood. Moved to do something for the family, Randy heads to Louisiana to set up a Kleinfeld pop-up store at a local hotel to bring her the dress of her dreams. The emotional episode captures the essence of that special “Say Yes” moment. Viewers also get a peek into Randy’s life outside of Kleinfeld when his mother visits New York to celebrate her 93rd birthday, and Randy’s planned a surprise that she’ll never forget.
As a perfect pairing to the 10-year anniversary, TLC will launch Say Yes to the Dress UK at 9/8c to give viewers a double dose of bridal magic, but this time from across the pond. Host David Emmanuel, who designed the late Princess Diana’s wedding gown with his wife, brings his expertise to help more women find their dress for happily ever after.
Randy Fenoli and TLCme host Danni Starr will introduce viewers to 16 of the most stunning and stylish designer wedding dresses to go head-to-head in the third annual SAY YES TO THE DRESS’ March MadDRESS competition.
Fans will play along at home and submit brackets online at TLC.com for a chance to win a gown from Kleinfeld and SYTTD swag. Each week, Randy and Danni will report on which dresses advance and then join viewers on Saturday nights with LIVE social elements. This year’s event is presented by Quicken Loans.
