10-Part Series Premieres with Back-to-Back Episodes
Friday, March 27 at 9/8c on TLC
Providing personalized attention and pure Southern charm, Alabama-based bridal designer and Project Runway alum Heidi Elnora takes viewers behind the scenes of her bridal boutique in new TLC series BRIDE BY DESIGN. Viewers get an inside look at Heidi and her dedicated team as they design and create one-of-a-kind gowns for one-of-a-kind brides. Taking bridal dreams from imagination to reality, the series follows Heidi as she sketches, sews and fits each customized gown to match the personalities of each bride-to-be. Coming out of the successful pilot that aired last summer, the full first season of BRIDE BY DESIGN will include 10 half-hour episodes premiering Friday, March 27 at 9/8c.
The half-hour premiere features bride Tia who is ready to bring her dress dreams to life with the help of Heidi and her team. But Tia has a lot of dresses to compete with as eight of her fiancé’s Atlanta Braves teammates also got engaged this year. To stand out among her fellow baseball wives, Tia requests not one, but two entirely different looks for her ceremony and reception. Heidi has her work cut out for her, but is determined to hit a homerun with Tia’s dress. Then, bride Kayla experiments with Heidi’s unique “Build-a-Bride” collection—where brides can choose a classic dress and then add custom touches such as lace, sleeves or sparkle—to create a gown that fits her special day and matches her late mother’s veil. With Heidi’s help, Kayla has the confidence she needs to build just the right dress that would make her mother proud.
In the second half-hour episode, Heidi may be pushed to her limit as one bride wants to look like a Russian princess in her custom wedding dress with an intense need for sparkle. And Heidi helps a second bride design her own “Build-a-Bride” gown who is torn between lace and something with a little more wow.
BRIDE BY DESIGN invites viewers to dream big along with the featured brides, and with Heidi and her team on the job, viewers are bound to feel each bridal moment.
