Why you should Say Yes To The Dress

As it returns to TLC for season 17, we list all the things that are almost certain to happen

Watching Say Yes To The Dress is the key to a happy relationship… with your TV

Friday 26 July, 8pm, TLC/HD (CH 167/168). Also available for 7 days in Catch Up > Channels > TLC

Say Yes To The Dress describes itself as “part bridal story, part fashion makeover and part family therapy session” – in other words, it’s the perfect formula for a reality show. And 17 seasons later, New York City’s Kleinfeld Bridal is busier than ever. With the largest selection of wedding dresses in the world and more than 200 dedicated staff members, the bridalwear empire is a dream destination for all things nuptial.


Hosted by wedding dress designer Randy Fenoli, who seeks to “educate, elevate and empower” brides, this series stars Nik, a bass player who has worked with Prince; Lyndzie, who believes she was royalty in a past life and plans on having a royal wedding; and Rebekah, a woman with a prosthetic arm looking for the perfect dress. As the brides try on the dresses, they (and Kleinfeld’s consultants) all have one goal in mind: to say “yes” to the dress. The series has spawned over a dozen spin-off shows in countries all over the world. That formula we mentioned is clearly working!

But before you say “YES!” to Say Yes To The Dress, here’s 14 things that are almost certainly guaranteed to happen.
