TLC in the US has announced that major new TV event Say Yes to the Dress: America, produced by Half Yard Productions, will premiere Saturday January 4 at 8pm ET/PT.
The most epic wedding series and event in TLC’s history will see one bride from every US state, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico flown to New York for a private shopping event for her dream dress at the world-famous Kleinfeld Bridal salon. They’ll then join charismatic host and bridal designer Randy Fenoli for an unprecedented group wedding spectacular full of glitz, gowns and glamour.
Pulling double duty, Randy will officiate as each couple says “I do” in unison at New York City’s iconic Central Park in a two-hour event capping off the engaging 10-part series. Joining him to help create the wedding event of a lifetime will be bridal designer and self-proclaimed ‘America’s bridesmaid’ Hayley Paige, Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro, Emmy Award-winning host and style expert Lilliana Vazquez and fashion industry veteran Joe Zee. Randy will also be hitting the road to surprise 10 brides who will be prominently featured, revealing the news they’ve been chosen and getting a taste of life in their hometowns.
The featured brides are: Katie K. (Evans, GA), Erin Looney (Lesage, WV), Sammi Jo Woodard (Basalt, CO), Helecia Williams (Houston, TX), Lindsay Stegemoller (Phoenix, AZ), Jackie Chiao (Washington, D.C.), Cassandra Foley (Philadelphia, PA), Lacy Galas (Rockford, MI), Sky Pelham (Orange, CA) and Loales Cruz (Bronx, NY).
