TLC renews reality series for plus-size brides


TLC executives are pleased with the success of the new spin-off series “Say Yes To the Dress: Big Bliss” – so pleased that they’ve committed to a second season.

The network has ordered 12 half-hour episodes, slated to premiere in May 2011. Taped inside premier bridal salon Kleinfeld Bridal, each episode follows the emotional journey of plus-size brides as they shop to fulfill their dream dress fantasy. For a plus-size bride shopping for her big day, the pressure is at an all-time high, not only to find the dream dress, but the perfect fit too.

Season 1 premieres of “Say Yes To the Dress” average 1.5 million P2+ viewers.

The original “Say Yes To the Dress” series returns in January 2011 with all new episodes, and the new installment of the franchise, “Say Yes To the Dress: Atlanta,” returns for a second season in summer 2011.

Say Yes To the Dress: Big Bliss is produced by Half Yard Productions for TLC.
