Brides have many important decisions to make as they prepare for their wedding, including the task of finding their perfect wedding dress, as fans have seen on TLC's long-running franchise SAY YES TO THE DRESS, returning Saturday, January 5 at 8/7c. But, after brides find their dream gown and walk down the aisle, what comes next? HGTV has the answer with SAY YES TO THE NEST. In a sneak peek airing Saturday, January 5 at 10/9c, the HGTV series follows different newlyweds on their journey to finding and purchasing their first shared home. A significant milestone for any couple, this show not only offers insight into what a couple is looking for in a home, but it also provides an inside look at the dynamics of their relationship as they begin to lay the foundation for a "nest" of their own. The six-episode season of SAY YES TO THE NEST premieres on HGTV in March 2019.
"Through our newly combined Discovery Lifestyle portfolio, we can create strategic opportunities that engage our superfans across all brands and create innovative cross-over opportunities for advertisers," said Howard Lee, President and GM of TLC and Allison Page, President of HGTV and Food Network. "On the heels of relaunching WHILE YOU WERE OUT, we are excited to continue our cross-network collaborations in the wedding space. For years, viewers have lived vicariously through the brides featured in our signature wedding series SAY YES TO THE DRESS, and now with SAY YES TO THE NEST, they can explore post-nuptial bliss with newlyweds who are preparing to plant roots and spend 'forever' together."
Kicking off the fun on Saturday, January 5 at 8/7c, SAY YES TO THE DRESS returns to Kleinfeld Bridal, which recently wrapped one of its biggest bridal seasons to date, and the team is excited to welcome back Randy Fenoli on the heels of a successful debut of his eponymous bridal collection. This season is full of surprises, ranging from a bride looking for a "dark fairy" dress, to a bride who is hopeful that she will walk down the aisle with her fiancé after he was proclaimed paralyzed from an injury; and some of the celebrity brides include Prince's former bass player Nik West, singer and actress Sabrina Bryan and "bionic model" Rebekah Marine.
In the premiere episode, Randy and the consultants are immediately put to the test by two unique brides who require their undivided attention. The Kleinfeld team has their hands full with social media mogul Sydel Curry, the sister of star NBA player Stephen Curry, who arrives in tow with her mother Sonya, niece Riley and sister-in-law, celebrity chef and television personality Ayesha Curry. Not only do they need to find a gorgeous gown that Sydel loves, but they also need to get the final stamp of approval from someone a little harder to impress - Sydel's mom.
Viewers will also witness the return of Cami Li - the feisty bride who sent mothers worldwide into a state of panic last season when she was adamant about getting a black wedding dress - when she walks into Kleinfeld with her mother for her final dress fitting, before saying 'I Do," to her now husband Brent. The eclectic bride gives her mom another scare when she admits that her heart is still set on the all-black dress! Last minute arguments on rehearsal day will have fans on the edge of their seats, but the emotional rollercoaster will eventually give way to a magical, Alice in Wonderland themed wedding.
Cami Li and Brent's fairytale doesn't end at the altar; in a cross-network programming event, viewers can tune into HGTV's brand new series, SAY YES TO THE NEST, premiering on Saturday, January 5 at 10/9c, to continue following the couple's journey to happily ever after. In the premiere episode, the couple will trade in their wedding planner for a realtor as they embark on the first major purchase of their married life - a house. From location and style, to all their personal requests, the couple must master the art of compromise, so they can ultimately SAY YES TO THE NEST.
