TLC’s upcoming season of Say Yes to the Dress is set to premiere in January, but the fun begins now. In a teaser trailer for season 16 that dropped Monday, December 18, brides of all ilk try to lock down the dress of their dreams with the help of the ever-patient team at Kleinfeld Bridal.
Randy Fenoli, designer and bridal counselor extraordinaire, advises brides and their doting entourages to “take a deep breath” as he helps them maneuver some new territory, like a dog who needs a matching dress, a bride who wants to dress in all-black, and a bride who hasn’t told her family she’s four-months pregnant.
“Right now, I’m four months pregnant,” the bride-to-be tells Fenoli at one point in the clip. “Congratulations!” he exclaims before she cuts him off. “No one knows about this.”
Yet other brides are looking for help making their dreams for the actual big day come true: one bride hopes to say “I do” on a glacier in Juno, Alaska; another is looking to make her wedding a memorable one with a circus-themed reception.
Shark Tank‘s Barbara Corcoran and Flipping Out‘s Jenni Pulos make celebrity cameos this season, and Fenoli’s resurgence as a wedding dress designer takes center stage as well.
“After not designing for so many years, to get back into the industry—my reputation is hanging on these dresses right now,” he says during the trailer. “I’m scared.”
Say Yes to the Dress will return to TLC on Saturday, January 6, at 8 p.m. ET.
