The brides are back and better than ever! TLC's long-running series, Say Yes to the Dress, is pulling out all of the stops for its sweet sixteen season, premiering on Saturday, January 6 at 8/7c with an episode featuring popular bridalwear designer Hayley Paige, who is finds herself in an unusual position - on the other side of the drawing board as a buyer and not a creator.

This season, Randy Fenoli begins a thrilling new chapter when he gets back to his roots designing wedding gowns! However, the stakes are high: not only does he need the full support of Kleinfeld Bridal, but he also needs to impress even the pickiest of brides in hopes of re-establishing himself as a highly sought-after designer in this competitive industry. Viewers will find that Kleinfeld is busier than ever this season, and consultants - old and new - are in high demand helping brides Say Yes! One bride may give her mother a heart attack if she buys an all-black dress; another hopes to choose a gown that can be replicated for her beloved dog to wear on the bride's big day; plus, FLIPPING OUT's Jenni Pulos and SHARK TANK's Barbara Corcoran are just a couple of the exciting celebrity guests-of-the-bride who are tagging along this season.

After all of the dramatic and highly emotional shopping moments featured throughout the season, fans will be enchanted by some of the most breathtaking weddings yet. From ceremonies atop a glacier in Alaska and the Eiffel Tower in Paris to newlyweds (and Randy!) experiencing the most extreme attraction at Coney Island, the all-new, sixteenth season of Say Yes to the Dress will be an unforgettable, wild ride!

The Saturday night celebration will continue with the one-night, two-hour return of TLC's, Four Weddings, which airs at 9/8c. In a new twist, things are getting personal - the featured brides are not strangers, rather they are close friends, and the grooms are teaming up with their wives to help pull off their magical day. The veils are coming off and these blushing brides, who are all getting married around the same time, will evaluate each other's weddings based on six categories: venue, food, dress, entertainment, originality and overall experience. The bride with the highest score will win an all-expense paid honeymoon for herself and her husband.
