Randy Fenoli of Say Yes To The Dress whisks through Dallas on Sunday
He'll talk wedding gowns, like he does best.
DALLAS Randy Fenoli of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress says he knows what ladies want -- even when they don’t. This bridal guru will bring his expertise to the Dallas area for a visiting nationwide series called “Randy to the Rescue: The Ultimate Bridal Event.” Dallas is his first stop. Shooting December 11 at the Hilton Anatole, Fenoli promises to dish on the coming year’s best wedding trends.
As fashion director at Kleinfeld’s Bridal in New York City, he is no stranger to helping brides as they search for the dress of their dreams. With more than 15 years of experience, he has seen that most bridal meltdowns involve the pressures of overwhelming advice from friends and family, finding the most flattering dress for a woman’s fit, and the real challenge of staying within a budget.
Fenoli is no stranger to Dallas, having lived here in the early '90s. But while he's back for the film shoot at the Anatole, he probably won't have time to poke around our restaurants or bars. (It's a busy filming schedule -- sun-up to sundown.)
But: “If I forget to pack something, I would love to spend time at the Galleria," he said. "It was one of my favorite places to visit when I lived in Dallas in the fall of 1991. Otherwise, my shopping spree will probably be limited to the D/FW Airport.”
He follows the same mantra blazed by other reality shows: That everything's bigger in Texas. "I do anticipate a lot of brides wanting to wear cowboy boots," he said. "I guess I will have to accept this and work within the bride’s wishes. After all, it is her wedding.” He'll meet with some brides on Sunday, December 11, and says he'll report back if western footwear is popular.
He wouldn't divulge which parts of town would be featured in the show.
Here's his advice for any brides-to-be: "Be true to yourself. Your gown is out there, and I can help you find it," he said.
