RANDY FENOLI IN 2013
Randy Fenoli, accomplished designer and popular presenter of TLC's TV hit series "Say Yes To The Dress", was our special guest in 2013 at the Rhode Island show.
Everyone enjoyed Randy's presentation and the meet-and-greet session where Randy was so gracious to endure 2 hours meeting everyone.
We would like to address a special thanks to our title sponsor Alexandra's Bridal Boutique of Fall River, MA for being a big supporter of this event.
Update - Randy has designed a new wedding dress collection, and the result is as stunning as you can imagine. The feedback from the debut of his new line for Spring 2018 was phenomenal. The bridal
veteran has channeled his skill and charm into an amazing assortment of dresses. The 25-piece collection is stylish, elegant, and sexy—how's that for a fashion trifecta? Big beaded flowers, body-hugging lace, and button-up backs are just a smidgen of the appeal. There are even convertible options in the mix, as if the dresses weren't wow-worthy already. Overall, the designer's namesake brand is a welcome addition to the wedding world. Now, for the big question: Will you say "yes" to a Randy Fenoli dress?
