What a phenomenal way to kick off the start of New York Bridal Fashion Week with the introduction of Randy Fenoli’s new bridal gown collection. Our first stop after we arrived in NYC was Kleinfeld Bridal, where Randy’s show took place. We were especially excited for this show and for our friend Randi Fenoli who rose to bridal bliss fame for his expert advice on TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress” and his own series “Randy To The Rescue.” Over the years, many brides have sought Randy’s advice enabling them to “say yes” to their perfect wedding dress. With so much knowledge of what brides love and dislike, what works on certain body types and what doesn’t, this collection is a welcoming fresh new vision at a moderate price point. The 25 pieces have a wide range in style and silhouettes that range from $1,500 to $3,000.
We first met Randy many years ago at Bridal Fashion Week when Kleinfeld Bridal introduced their own bridal collection. We would always cross paths going from one fashion show to another over the years as we attend Bridal Market every fall and spring. Over time we were asked by Half Yard Productions and TLC to produce the “Randy To The Rescue” show, a spin-off of Say Yes To The Dress on TLC! The premise of the show was The Wedding Guys took Randy Fenoli around the country from January -April to meet brides in different cities who were struggling trying to find just the right dress. We worked with TLC on their most expensive show to date with Randy Fenoli for two seasons traveling to a total of 18 cities. When we had a weekend off we were producing our UNVEILED Wedding Event in Dallas, Atlanta or Minneapolis. The show ran for two season on TLC. People always ask us what Randy is really like, and we tell everyone what you see on TV is exactly how he is in person! He has to be one of the most talented and caring people in the industry. On the show Randy To The Rescue, he used to sketch each bride in their dress and give it to them following the reveal.
Our top 3 picks from the Randy Fenoli Collection are:
Style R3404 “Grace” sleeveless mikado ball gown with modified Sabrina neckline, natural waist, box-pleated skirt, pockets, and beaded floral appliqués
Style R3420 “Madeline” soft trumpet dress with silver crystal beading over blush lining, a V-neckline, and a beaded-tulle modified capelet
Style R3415 “Iris” beaded floral-lace strapless trumpet dress with beaded lace cape
