Discovery-owned cable net TLC is adding a nationwide search component to its popular wedding franchise Say Yes to the Dress.
Say Yes to the Dress America will run for 10 episodes, culminating in a two-hour wedding event.
Producers are currently casting soon-to-be brides and will select one participant from every state, as well as one each from Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
TLC will provide each bride-to-be with an all-expenses paid trip to New York City; a private shopping event at wedding salon Kleinfeld Bridal, where they will be gifted a wedding gown; a TLC-hosted pre-wedding reception; and a group wedding comprised of all 52 selected couples at an as-yet unspecified, iconic NYC location, to be hosted by bridal expert Randy Fenoli (pictured), who will also officiate.
Say Yes to the Dress America, like the original series, is produced by Red Arrow Studios-owned Half Yard Productions for TLC, and will premiere in January 2020.
“When viewers need their bridal fix, they turn to Say Yes to the Dress,” said Howard Lee, president and GM for TLC. “We are beyond excited to expand this beloved franchise and give superfans across the country the chance to be a part of the biggest and most buzzworthy wedding event of the year.”
