According to E! News, fans can expect entourages full of “hyper-opinionated mothers, fashion-forward fathers, and scene-stealing sisters.” Some familiar faces will also be returning. Consultants who have since left Kleinfeld Bridal will be returning for the 20th season. Jill Vertes, a famed reality TV star, will also have her wedding featured on the show. Vertes, of Dance Mom fame, previously said yes to a Kleinfeld’s dress. 

Why was Randy Fenoli virtual during season 19? 

Season 19 of Say Yes to the Dress had a decidedly different feel. Randy Fenoli, the beloved consultant, known for his ability to find the perfect dress while offering some brutally honest opinions, took many of his appointments virtually. 

Fenoli explained that season 19 of the series felt different because it was filmed during the height of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. According to a clip on Instagram, Fenoli couldn’t fly due to restrictions and his schedule, which included caring for his mother. Things have loosened up a bit now, and viewers are excited to see Randy back in action inside Kleinfeld. July 9 can’t come soon enough.
