Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss is a show from TLC that revolves around plus-size brides and their quest to find the perfect wedding dress. The show stars the renowned bridal consultant Randy Fenoli and follows the same format as the popular show Say Yes to the Dress. Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss was first introduced on TLC in 2007 and has since become a fan-favorite show among audiences.

The show's format is simple yet captivating. The bride and her family or friends come to the bridal salon with a desire to find a dress that flatters her body type and accentuates her best features. A professional bridal stylist discusses the bride’s personal style, venue, and budget before leading her to the showroom where they browse the dresses available.

During this process, viewers get to see the excitement, anxiety, and anticipation of the brides as they try on dresses and get feedback from their loved ones. The show also features heart-warming stories of brides-to-be who have overcome significant obstacles in life, such as health issues or self-esteem problems, to find true love.

As with any bridal salon, there are numerous mishaps and anxieties that arise in the process of finding the perfect dress. Some brides can be indecisive or overly critical of their bodies, leading to a less-than-positive shopping trip. However, the stylists at the bridal shop are experts at providing a comfortable environment to help the bride focus on what makes her feel the most beautiful.

The show also has an ensemble of expert bridal consultants who help the bride-to-be throughout the dress selection process. The main consultant, Randy Fenoli, has been with the show since the beginning and is a beloved icon in the bridal gown industry. He brings his years of experience and expert knowledge to provide invaluable feedback to the brides as they navigate the different dress styles and customization options.

Another expert consultant, Ronnie Rothstein, brings his decades of experience in the bridal industry to the show as a recurring guest. He is the co-owner of Kleinfeld Bridal, the most prominent bridal shop in the country, and has worked with some of the most respected designers in the world. He provides expert advice to the brides on dress selection, alteration, and customization, making the bridal experience even more special.

The show's host, Roger Craig Smith, brings his charm and wit to the show as he guides viewers through the shopping experience of each bride-to-be. He introduces each bride, her story, and her entourage, and also provides background information on each dress style or designer. He keeps the show's energy upbeat and entertaining while still relaying important information about the show's guests and their needs.

Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss takes on the highly critical issue of size inclusivity in the bridal industry. Many plus-sized women who are shopping for wedding dresses have found it challenging to find a store that carries dresses in their size or provides a positive shopping experience. Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss aims to change that by providing a platform for plus-sized brides to find a dress that makes them feel confident, stylish, and most importantly, themselves.

Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss is a must-watch for anyone who has an interest in bridal wear, dress customization, or the intricacies of the personal shopping experience. It is a heartwarming, informative, and entertaining show that has captured the hearts of fans for over a decade. Through this show, TLC has made significant strides toward size inclusivity in the bridal industry, and Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss stands as a testament to the beauty of weddings and the importance of personal confidence.

Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (27 episodes). The series first aired on October 1, 2010.
