Randy’s passion for fashion and design lead him to the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. While at FIT, Randy won many awards for design and achievement. Immediately after graduating in 1993, Randy launched his first two bridal industry collections: Randy Fenoli for the Diamond Collection and Randy Fenoli for Dressy Creations.  From 2007-2012 Randy worked as Fashion Director at New York’s Kleinfeld Bridal Salon where consulted with nearly 15,000 brides a year.

Today as the star of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress”, “Big Bliss”, “Randy Knows Best”, “Randy to the Rescue”, and “Say Yes to the Dress Benelux”, Randy is seen by millions of viewers each week in approximately 150 countries. On Randy to the Rescue, Fenoli traveled the country with a semi-truck filled with wedding gowns and accessories helping brides find their dream wedding dress at his ultimate pop up bridal salon. Randy selects three lucky brides who have said “Yes” to their dress and then, with the help of a hairstylist and makeup artist, transforms these brides from “head to hem” and presents each with a “bridal blueprint” for her wedding day. With a philosophy that no matter what her size, age or shape, EVERY woman is beautiful, Randy seems able to overcome any challenge.

RANDY FENOLI'S TOP 10 TIPS

FOR DRESS SUCCESS!

 

"Say Yes To The Dress" gown guru, Randy Fenoli, shares his shopping secrets in his book, It’s All About the Dress.

Image
1. ESTABLISH YOUR STORY
How do you want your dress to make you feel and what do you want it to say to your guests? Do you want to look sexy, understated, modern, chic, traditional? Or perhaps you want your dress to have a more vintage feeling? Once you find your story, I promise you will find your dress.
2. ESTABLISH A BUDGET
Once you make a wedding budget, lock it in. But what happens when you love a dress that’s over your budget? Can you reevaluate and borrow money from one part of your wedding budget and apply it to your dress? As long as you stay within the overall wedding budget you’ve established you should be able to spend a bit more if need be.
  3. DON'T WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE TO SHOP FOR YOUR GOWN
In general, it takes around six to eight months for a dress to be ordered and delivered to our store.
  5. NEVER PURCHASE A GOWN WITHOUT TRYING IT ON FIRST
It doesn’t matter if you’re petite or tall, slim or plus-sized, whether you are straight or curvaceous: You still must TRY IT ON!
Image
Image
6. IT'S NOT ABOUT SIZE : IT'S ABOUT SILHOUETTE AND PROPORTION
Whether you’re choosing your gown, your accessories or your bouquet, you must always look at your silhouette and the proportions of everything in relationship to your body.
  7. EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION. MAKE SURE YOURS IS HEARD
When gown-shopping, only invite people who love and support you — and who understand your story, your style, your budget and are there for positive support. 
8. WHEN MAKING CHANGES TO A DRESS, ALWAYS GET THE DETAILS IN WRITING
Make sure that all changes you discussed with your consultant, along with the prices, are clearly written on your order.
  9. DO NOT SKIMP ON ALTERATIONS. YOUR GOWN MUST FIT PROPERLY
There’s nothing worse than watching a bride tugging at her strapless gown to keep it from falling down or tripping on a hem that’s too long.
  10. WITHOUT A VEIL, YOU'RE JUST A PRETTY GIRL IN A WHITE DRESS
Many of my brides tell me that the moment I place a veil on their head they feel like a bride. The perfect veil pulls everything together.
