FORGET THE OLD AND BLUE!
BRIDES CHOOSE SOMETHING BORROWED OR SOMETHING NEW
On TLC's newest fashion wedding series premiering Friday, February 8th at 10/9c
[Los Angeles, CA] -- Since the Victorian era, brides have followed the good luck tradition of wearing a token of Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue on their wedding day. In the latest addition to TLC's BrideDay lineup, 12 episodes of the new half-hour series, SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING NEW premiers Friday, February 8th at 10/9c and follows a bride's journey to find the perfect wedding dress, but with a twist. They have to choose if they will walk down the aisle in a new designer gown or a fashionably reimagined heirloom.
In each episode, hosted by designer Kelly Nishimoto and stylist Sam Saboura, the bride-to-be works with the experts to help her choose between two dress options. She has the opportunity to wear a special, previously worn gown (mother's hand me down, best friend's princess gown, etc.) that Kelly will rework to update for the time, venue and personality of the bride. The bride will also join Sam on a shopping trip as he takes her to the bridal salon to pick out a brand new stylish dress. Then, it's an emotional roller-coaster as the bride has to choose between a nostalgic one-of-a kind dress and a new and fashionable piece.
Meet the duo who will assist these women in making one of the most important decisions for their wedding day:
