"Say Yes to the Dress" on TLC is a reality docu-series which is taped inside the iconic Kleinfeld bridal salon in New York City. Part fashion show, part bridal story, part family therapy, the series uncovers the hurdles every staff member faces to make each bride completely satisfied on what may be the single most important day of her life.

Season 10

With the leading bridal experts in the business, the new season of "Say Yes to the Dress" continues to feature emotional brides, opinionated entourages, and dream dresses.

In the season premiere, Kristin Chenoweth's assistant and best friend, Julie, is shedding her simple classic style for her boss's style and looking for a short dress with glitz and glamour for her second wedding gown. But when dress one falls flat with the entire crowd, Kristin takes control and finds what she thinks is the perfect gown for Julie, even modeling the dress herself for the bride-to-be. Unfortunately Julie isn't sold on the dress and Kristin's left wondering if Julie will ever find a dress that's out of her comfort zone. In the end, consultant Debbie finds a gown with a little bling and a full skirt, but will Julie say yes to her Kristin style gown?

Other brides featured this season include one who shops with her two "bridesmen" for an edgy dress, a bride-to-be who brings her fiancé's best man to her appointment to represent her husband's opinion, a "Daddy's girl" who is looking for a dress to match her Texas style, and a bride who is on the hunt for a third dress to replace the two she already has. Also featured this season is a very special episode where three brides — one who has recently beaten breast cancer, one who is battling a rare kidney disease, and one who is overcoming stage four lung cancer — are all looking at their upcoming weddings as a celebration of love and life.

Season 11

In the eleventh season, brides continue to visit the salon with their colorful backstories. One bride, fresh off of her Italian elopement, decides she is after an ultra-sexy gown. But since her family missed out on her ceremony, the bride's mother has a critical eye on all the dresses she's chosen. After losing 100 pounds, another bride wants to show off her new curves. But as she brings her fiancé along, she soon finds out that they don't share the same taste in dresses.

In another appointment, WNBA star Kia Vaughn (armed with her favorite pair of high heels) wants to reach seven-feet on her wedding day. Already standing tall at 6-foot-4, Kia calls on Randy's help when she realizes that finding a dress for her tall frame may not be as easy as it seems. Country star Whitney Duncan (who was also on "Survivor" where she met her husband) also pays Kleinfeld a visit, in search of a dress that commands the center stage. Often found walking the red carpet in a variety of gowns, this time Whitney is after a romantic lace gown for her big day.

A couple of brides also travel a long way for their dresses this season, with one traveling 4,000 miles from Alaska, and another who visits NYC after exhausting the boutiques of Europe. And who says brides should wear white? Season 11 features more unconventional brides than ever, with one bride-to-be in search of a pink gown, while another is left wondering if she'll ever find her dream dress in blue.

Season 12

The twelfth season premieres with a first-ever hour-long episode and features personal trainer and television personality Jillian Michaels. Jillian pops in to surprise mentee and former "Biggest Loser" contestant Tumi Oguntala, who after losing 175 pounds, is ready to get a fresh start on her new life as she prepares to walk down the aisle. While this special bride-to-be is in the process of finding her dream dress, she has no idea that things are about to get even better when her "Biggest Loser" mentor has multiple surprises in store for her during the bridal appointment. In another first for the series, the season premiere takes viewers outside of Kleinfeld and captures a moving proposal. Being that Megan is a huge fan of the show, her boyfriend decides to plan a romantic proposal in NYC, while Nicole and Christiane ambush her with cameras, and whisk her away to Kleinfeld for a once in a lifetime shopping experience. Once Megan arrives, she is shocked once again as she is met by her friend, aunt, and sister.

Throughout the new season, brides continue to visit the salon from all over the country with their entourages and emotional backstories. One New Orleans bride travels to Kleinfeld in search of a sexy mermaid cut gown, but since her mother is paying for the dress, she believes that she should have a strong vote in the final decision.

In another appointment, Erin Brady wants to find the perfect gown that screams bridal and not pageant queen. As the reigning Miss USA, Erin has tried on her fair share of over-the-top gowns, but this time around she's after a classic romantic dress that will satisfy her friends and family, namely her hard to please mother-in-law. Erin enlists the help of bridal guru Randy Fenoli when she realizes that pleasing her entourage is not as simple as she originally thought. Meghan King, the fiancée of MLB superstar turned Fox Sports pundit Jim Edmonds, also turns to the experts at Kleinfeld for her dream dress. Meghan is supermodel stunning, but she is having trouble finding the perfect gown for her tall and slim figure. While she is after a gown that will flatter her slim figure, she also needs to find the perfect style for her Bora Bora elopement.

A number of brides this season are also preparing for their destination nuptials, with one bride searching for a gown that will suit her barefoot Turks and Caicos wedding fantasy, and another who is on the hunt for a gown that will transform her Parisian wedding.

From superstar athletes and television hosts, to Broadway actresses and real life heroes, season 12 features a robust lineup of guest appearances including Ginger Zee from "Good Morning America"; actress and Broadway star Sutton Foster; Rebekah Gregory, Boston bombing survivor; NFL stars Julius Jones and Thomas Jones, who shop with their bride-to-be sister; Laurel Harris, lead Broadway actress in "Wicked"; QVC presenter/host Courtney Casen; and NFL player Ricardo Silva and fiancée Whytnee.

Season 13

Season 13 kicks off with comedian and host of E!'s "Fashion Police," Kathy Griffin. Tiffany, Kathy's former assistant and longtime friend, is devastated to learn that the comic can no longer make her appointment. Little does she know that Kathy is waiting to surprise her and act as her personal fashion police. Premiere night also takes viewers outside of Kleinfeld to the red carpet premiere of the Broadway show "Honeymoon in Vegas." In this episode, Randy and designer Pnina Tornai join star Brynn O'Malley in search of a dance-friendly gown for the show. Tony Danza and the rest of his Broadway team test drive several options, but when nothing seems right, Pnina agrees to design a custom gown which will debut on opening night.

Season 13 features a unique lineup of guest appearances. It is not unusual to have an outspoken entourage accompany a bride to her appointment. With Melissa Sorrentino (sister of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino) and her blathering crew in tow, the spotlight ends up on the family and not on the bride. Will Melissa and the whole family be stunned when Mom picks out a beautiful ball gown? Other guest appearances this season include Kevin Jonas' wife Danielle as she accompanies her friend Elizabeth Tamburelli; fashion host for Huffington Post Live and bride-to-be Caitlyn Becker; and "Law & Order: SVU" regular Tamara Tunie with her engaged daughter. Acrobat and daredevil Nik Wallenda and wife Erendira also pay a visit to Kleinfeld, as Erendira searches for the perfect vow renewal dress. But will Nik pick a dress that is too revealing for his wife?

Throughout the new season, brides continue to visit Kleinfeld from all over the country in search of the perfect gown. While one bride is in search of an embellished "classy porn star" look, another bride finds a dress that's $7,000 over her price point. In another special episode, the salon is closed and Kleinfeld opens its doors to only top-paying VIP clientele. These brides come inside to shop for spectacular gowns, and with Pnina's help two brides walk away with custom creations.

Season 14

The series debuts with a new theme song written by platinum-selling country music star Kristian Bush of Sugarland. This season, Kristian visits Kleinfeld to help country girl Evyn find the perfect dress. Inspired and moved by his experience, he wrote the song "Forever Now."

In the season premiere, Martha Stewart pops in to help out a friend and her family have that perfect "bridal moment." The rest of the season is filled with special guest appearances and unique brides, including Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez who is still searching for her perfect dress just two months before her wedding; double amputee, bronze Olympian and "Dancing with the Stars" runner-up Amy Purdy; and bride Jenna Pugh who brings along her younger brother Justin, offensive guard for the New York Giants. "High School Musical" star Corbin Bleu also visits Kleinfeld with his fiancée, who is on the search for a sexy-yet-sophisticated look for her wedding day.

Wedding dress designer Haley Paige also reveals she's soon to be a bride herself, and during a visit to her studio, she spills the details of her Lake Tahoe wedding — from a blue painted "unicorn" and firework displays to the details of three different looks she is designing for the occasion.

Brides continue to flock to Kleinfeld from all over the country in search of their dream dress. In a special episode this season, one war veteran receives the shock of a lifetime when Randy Fenoli surprises her with a VIP experience at Kleinfeld. After two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 9/11 bombing at the Pentagon, and severe PTSD amongst other injuries, the surprises keep coming for this incredible woman on her special day.

From extravagant customized designs to brides on a budget, viewers can anticipate more designers and dresses than ever before.

Season 15

From outrageous dresses for underwater weddings to mothers of the bride stealing the spotlight, Randy Fenoli and the team of Kleinfeld consultants have their hands full with countless out-of-the-box demands. Also, last season, newcomer Shay, the first male consultant at Kleinfeld, came to make his mark on the bridal world, and his approach resulted in some turbulence with Randy. This season viewers step onto the bridal floor to see if they can really work together ... or not.

Some season highlights include Grammy-nominated singer Elle King coming in to find her perfect rocker-chic gown, and notoriously outspoken reality star Omarosa searching for her perfect, but not white wedding dress. Online sensation, Claudia Oshry aka Girl with No Job, brings her comedic relief to the dress shopping process, but her search for a dress with sleeves is not an easy one for consultant, Lisa. This season is full of surprises with brides requesting dresses to run marathons in, two-piece dresses for an ocean wedding, a dress for a Grand Canyon helicopter wedding and more. Between the seemingly impossible requests and new consultants at Kleinfeld, the team is still determined to help more brides than ever.

Also this season, Randy heads out of the salon to surprise a Baton Rouge bride who lost her home and beloved wedding dress in a damaging flood. Moved to do something for the family, Randy heads to Louisiana to set up a Kleinfeld pop-up store at a local hotel to bring her the dress of her dreams. The emotional episode captures the essence of that special "Say Yes" moment. Viewers also get a peek into Randy's life outside of Kleinfeld when his mother visits New York to celebrate her 93rd birthday, and Randy's planned a surprise that she'll never forget.
