Bride whisperer Randy Fenoli is back at Kleinfeld Bridal in the new season of Say Yes To The Dress on Sundays on TLC (DStv 135). This season’s brides are challenging Randy in all sorts of intriguing ways, from brides who want dresses that’ll be up to an adventure, to a wedding with 2 brides – who’re both seeing Randy on the same day – to brides who’re looking for a special way to honour the memory of beloved family members.
While he was playing matchmaker between the ladies and their perfect dresses, we managed to slip Randy a few questions…
Made to move
In Sunday, 4 October’s episode 5, one bride wants a gown that she can really move in, while another is gearing up to ride a mechanical shark to the altar. But Randy is ready for anything.
He still remembers back in 2018 when he and the bridal stylist and Kleinfeld Bridal consultant, Lisa Fuhrman, tried out the most extreme ride at amusement park Coney Island to figure out how to dress a bride who was making it part of her big day! Tell us about it, Randy!
“The one at Coney Island, oh my gosh, that's one of my favourite episodes,” says Randy. “Lisa the consultant and I went to see the wedding in Coney Island. And the bride wanted to wear the dress on this ride called The Slingshot. It hurls you way up in the air. Lisa is absolutely petrified of any kind of ride like that, but I talked her into going on the ride with me, and it's priceless. She swore she would never do it again. And she would never have done it if I had not been there with her, but it was quite interesting. This season (in 4 October’s episode) we have a bride (Jennifer) who does taekwondo. And she wants to make sure that she's able to move in this dress, and do her taekwondo move. So that's the only one I can think of this season that is similar to those other experiences.”
