The show mixes fashion with drama and, of course, tales of love. It's all about satisfying the bride and making her find the Perfect Dress.

Recently, the designer/ consultant of Kleinfeld, Randy Fenoli said the show is on steroids. The show is dramatic, but let's find out why Fenoli said that.
The New Series is on Steroids

He also wanted to make sure that every couple felt included. He didn't want anyone to feel left out. However, only 10 out of the 52 participating brides will be featured on the series.
"You are going to be blown away by this show," Fenoli tells Parade.com in this exclusive interview. "It is on steroids. I think it's going to change the trajectory of everything. I think it's going to be one of the most incredible shows ever on TLC, I do."
What's so Unique about This Season?
The upcoming season is not just another one of the many SYTTD spinoffs that are on TLC. Fenoli said that this new series is unlike anything you've ever seen before.
The 52 couples are diverse, with multiple nationalities and same-sex couples included. From the 52, ten brides were selected to be featured, and Fenoli traveled to their hometowns to spend time with them, as well as their family and friends.

"Everybody's just so different and unique," Fenoli says. "When you get to see their real lives, it's so much more informative and personal than just them coming in and talking about it. I've bonded so closely with these brides that we still keep in touch, and we're still on a group chat together."

Challenge for Kleinfeld
The Kleinfeld staff carefully selected with the help of a Kleinfeld consultant, and with 52 brides, the challenge was all the different body types, shapes, and sizes. "I always want every single bride not just to say yes to a dress, but to absolutely find the dress of her dreams," Fenoli said.
Fenoli says of writing the wedding ceremony vows. "I spent time with every single couple. And, as every single bride walked down the steps at Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, I announced her name and state as she met her groom, so they did have that individual moment."

"We pulled it off!" revels Say Yes' ebullient host, bridal designer Randy Fenoli. 'I never in a million years would've thought that we could've made that many brides happy and to have them find the Dress of their dreams. I wouldn't have been able to sleep if they hadn't, because, for me, it is essential that they feel beautiful and confident on their wedding day, so it was quite a feat."
