Parents need to know that Randy To The Rescue is a spinoff of Say Yes To The Dress, and features brides-to-be trying on dresses and getting makeovers before their big day. Lots of designer dresses are featured, and many of the conversations relate to women's shapes and silhouettes. Kleinfeld's Bridal is often referenced, and locations like Las Vegas Paris are also featured.
What's the story?
RANDY TO THE RESCUE is a reality series featuring Kleinfeld Bridal Shop stylist Randy Fenoli traveling around the country making brides dreams come true. The Say Yes To The Dress spinoff follows Fenoli as he arrives at cities around the country with a truck load of dresses, veils, accessories, and other items for brides-to-be to try on. While he advises women on how to dress for perfection on their big day, consultants like hair stylist Paul Norton and make up artist Lesley Thornton makeover a select group of women from head to hem and has them step onto the isle of style to show off their looks to their family and friends. He also sends them off with a bridal blueprint to help them replicate the look on their wedding day. It isn't always easy to please picky or very rushed brides, but Randy manages to make lots of them very happy.
Is it any good?
Like Yes To The Dress, the series follows brides-to-be as they search for their dream dress and get styling tips from Randy to help them look and feel their best on their big day. While price points are discussed, most of the show's focus is on styling brides according to his signature approach and making them happy rather than simply making a sale.
While some brides briefly share some emotional stories about themselves or a loved one that is impacting their overall buying experience, most of the show is pretty mild and upbeat. Folks in the midst of their own wedding shopping bliss may find this helpful, and hopeless romantics will probably also find it very entertaining.
