Say Yes to the Dress’ Randy Fenoli Reflects on 20 Seasons

Through it all, one thing has stayed the same for Randy, though: “Being a consultant is really just much more challenging than you would imagine because you’ve got to analyze the bride and the entourage and figure out the style and the budget,” he revealed. “It’s a lot to juggle, being therapist and fashionista and referee, all at the same time, and psychic basically!”

From brides demanding specific dresses (“I clock them on it!”) to dealing with “mean entourages,” Randy tackles deeper subjects while making every bride feel especially beautiful for her big day.

“I love filming the show and working with brides even more than the day I started,” Randy concluded. “I truly do. Now that we’re all coming out of our houses [post-quarantine], we get to experience that joy of getting back together with family and loved ones and celebrating a wedding. I’m so excited about this season, and I think it’s going to be one of the best. I’m just so blessed and lucky and honored to be able to do what I do every day.”
