Plot Synopsis

SAY YES TO THE DRESS reveals the inner workings of the world's premiere bridal salon, Kleinfeld Bridal. Each half-hour episode is part fashion show, part bridal story, and part family therapy, as the program uncovers the hurdles every staff member faces to make each bride completely satisfied on what may be the single most important day of her life. Watch as a team of specialists guides three brides through the process of selecting, fitting, altering and delivering each flawless dress in time for the perfect day.

Throughout the new season, these brides visit the salon: a New Orleans bride travels in search of a sexy mermaid cut gown; the reigning Miss USA, Erin Brady, who wants the perfect gown that screams bridal and not pageant queen; Meghan King, the fiancee of former MLB superstar Jim Edmonds; a number of brides looking for gowns for their destination nuptials; and many more brides to be.

Entering into its 14th season, SYTTD debuts with a new theme song written by platinum-selling country music star Kristian Bush of Sugarland. This season, Kristian visits Kleinfeld to help country girl Evyn find the perfect dress. Inspired and moved by his experience, he wrote the song "Forever Now." In the Season 14 opener (9pm), "What Does Martha Think?," Martha Stewart pops in to help out friend Bailey and her family have that perfect 'bridal moment.' Meanwhile, bride Jessica is so indecisive she may not find a gown, and Crystal wants impossible alterations. In the night's second new episode (9:35pm), "I've Stalked This Dress on Instagram," designer Hayley Paige makes three unique dresses for her big day, bride Elisabeth comes to Kleinfeld to buy her dream gown from Hayley Paige, and LaKesha, a big fan of designer Lazaro, gets a huge shock at the salon.

The rest of the season is filled with special guest appearances and unique brides, including Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez who is still searching for her perfect dress just two months before her wedding; double amputee, bronze Olympian and Dancing with the Stars runner-up Amy Purdy; and bride Jenna Pugh who brings along her younger brother Justin, offensive guard for the New York Giants. HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL star Corbin Bleu also visits Kleinfeld with his fiancee, who is on the search for a sexy yet sophisticated look for her wedding day. Brides continue to flock to Kleinfeld from all over the country in search of their dream dress. In a special episode this season, one war veteran receives the shock of a lifetime when Randy Fenoli surprises her with a VIP experience at Kleinfeld. After two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 9/11 bombing at the Pentagon, and severe PTSD amongst other injuries, the surprises keep coming for this incredible woman on her special day. On Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 8-10pm ET/PT, TLC premiered Season 15 of SAY YES TO THE DRESS. In the season opener, "10 Years Later and Busier Than Ever!," Grammy-nominated singer Elle King comes in to find her perfect rocker-chic gown, while Randy and consultant Shay have a dress disagreement. And bride Lisa needs a gown for a wedding with dolphins. Other season highlights include notoriously outspoken reality star Omarosa searching for her perfect, but not white wedding dress; online sensation Claudia Oshry (aka Girl with No Job) bringung 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 also 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. Season 16 of SYTTD premiered on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on TLC. Kleinfeld Bridal is busier than ever this season, and consultants - old and new - are in high demand helping brides Say Yes! One bride may give her mother a heart attack if she buys an all-black dress; another hopes to choose a gown that can be replicated for her beloved dog to wear on the bride's big day; plus, FLIPPING OUT's Jenni Pulos and SHARK TANK's Barbara Corcoran are just a couple of the celebrity guests-of-the-bride who are tagging along this season. After all of the dramatic and highly emotional shopping moments featured throughout the season, fans will be enchanted by some of the most breathtaking weddings yet. From ceremonies atop a glacier in Alaska and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, to newlyweds (and Randy!) experiencing the most extreme attraction at Coney Island. Also, this season, Randy Fenoli begins a thrilling new chapter when he gets back to his roots designing wedding gowns! However, the stakes are high: not only does he need the full support of Kleinfeld, but he also needs to impress even the pickiest of brides in hopes of re-establishing himself as a highly sought-after designer in this competitive industry.
