Bride, Family Argued Immediately on ‘Say Yes to the Dress’
- A new episode of the 20th season of “Say Yes to the Dress” airs Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.
- In a clip of the episode, a bride is trying to find a dress with only four months until her wedding.
- She didn’t agree with her mom and sister about wearing a simple dress or a ball gown.
A bride argued with her mother and sister about what kind of dress is right for her before her appointment even started on an upcoming episode of “Say Yes to the Dress.“
On Saturday’s episode of the TLC series, bodybuilder bride Liana came to Kleinfeld Bridal to find a dress with just four months until her wedding.
The time-crunch was stressful in and of itself because it takes six months to a year to make a wedding dress, but Liana was even more anxious because of her opinionated mother and sister, as seen in an exclusive clip of the episode shared with Insider.
The clip begins with Liana arguing with her mother and sister about what kind of dress is right for her before they even meet with a consultant.
Soon, Randy Fenoli and consultant Lisa interrupt the trio, trying to get a feel for what Liana actually wants.
“I see drama already happening,” Fenoli said to greet them.
“They’re overwhelming me,” Liana replied as she hugged Fenoli.
Liana and her family went on to tell Fenoli and Lisa that they had already been to four other bridal appointments where Liana had tried on hundreds of dresses. There was only one dress she liked, but she still didn’t love anything.
“You need to help us. I can’t do this no more,” Liana’s mom said.
Part of the problem seemed to be that they weren’t on the same page about what kind of dress is right for Liana.
Liana wanted a dress with sparkles on the bodice and cutouts, while her sister wanted something simple and her mom envisioned a ball gown.
Fenoli previously told Insider he can tell when an entourage isn’t going to be supportive of a bride’s vision for her dress.
“When they come in, you can always tell what the mood is and whether they really love the bride and really just want her to find the dress of her dreams or whether they have their own agenda,” he said, adding that some guests might appear jealous or apathetic.
“You never know what happened outside the salon doors before they walked in, but you can feel the energy as soon as they do,” he added.
He also said it is sometimes his job to advocate for a bride when her family or friends aren’t listening to her.
“I have to defend the bride sometimes. I say, ‘Listen, if you guys don’t get on board, I’m going to kick you overboard,'” Fenoli said.
“My goal is always to help the bride choose a dress that they feel the most beautiful in, because when they feel beautiful, they wear that dress like there is no other dress on the planet,” he added.
“They know they look good, and everybody feels it,” Fenoli said. “It’s about the confidence that you have while wearing the dress.”
