Say Yes To The Dress


OK, so this is totally a breakthrough for when you have nothing to do and a bottle of wine is still lying in the fridge from last week.

The next time you and your housemate are bored silly from sitting around the house all day, why not start a drinking game and get a few of your gal pals over. 

From Gossip Girl, to Scrubs, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Game of Thrones, there's a drinking game for that on Drink Wiki. There's even one for Say Yes To The Dress. Score!

And if you happen to come up with a drinking game for a show that isn't on the list, then fear not, because you're allowed to add your own in. 

So, get ready to take a sip of wine whenever Serena and Blair fight, a gulp of your Manhattan whenever Carrie changes her outfit and a tipple of champagne whenever someone says yes to their wedding dress.

Saturday nights at home just got WAY more fun. Crack open the wine, girls.


We’ve spent many nights curled up on the sofa with never-ending episodes of Say Yes to the Dress Ireland playing on the TV.

Our evenings just haven’t been the same since the last season of the show ended, but fear not, the wonderful Franc is returning to our screens very soon.

The unmissable series starts on Monday, September 17 on RTÉ2, and follows 30 brides from all over Ireland looking to find their perfect dress.  

Over 3,500 dresses from all over the world await the new group of brides-to-be and their entourages at Vows Bridal Store in Cork.

Franc and the bridal consultants; Vows Owner, Mary O’Dowling, along with Janice O’Leary, Denise O’Riordian and Ciara O’Dowling will meet brides from all over the country in search of their dream dresses.  

This five-part series has a few surprises in store including an opinionated father of the bride and a worried fiancé thrown into the mix.

One of this season’s brides Abby Ho has been searching high and low for her dream gown.

32-year-old Abby’s appointment will be a challenge. Abby is getting married in four months’ time, she’s got a budget of €500 maximum and she is joined by her five very opinionated sisters.  But the biggest challenge: before today Abby had tried over 50 wedding dresses and said no to them all.

We are so excited for the show to return to our screens. You can tune into the new episodes of Say Yes to the Dress Ireland on Monday, September 17 on RTÉ2.


Whether you're a bride-to-be, or just a lover of daytime television, Say Yes to the Dress is pretty much everyone's favourite guilty pleasure.

The international reality hit has paved the way for a number of spin-off series over the last few years, and now it's finally Ireland's turn to get in on the action.

RTÉ and television production company, Shinawil, have announced that the county's most famous wedding planner, Peter Kelly (AKA Franc), will present the first Irish version of the series, set to debut later this year.

The ten part series will be filmed in three blocks across August and September in a new couture section of Vows bridal store based in Blarney Business Park in Cork.

The boutique is stocked with lavish dresses from all over the world and cameras will follow 40 Irish brides, who have already been selected, as they try the various styles, colours, patterns and textures in an attempt to find the perfect gown for their big day.

Speaking about the upcoming series Franc said, “I am so excited to be presenting the Irish version of Say Yes To The Dress. As an international wedding planner I have travelled both home and abroad with my brides to find their perfect dress.”

“I could write a book on the amazing experiences I have shared travelling the globe from Hollywood to Paris, London to New York. I am really looking forward to the journey that I am going to take now with my Irish brides on their quest to find their perfect dress.”

That's our winter telly sorted.


Say Yes to the Dress has been a guilty pleasure of ours for a while now.

What's better than looking at beautiful dresses along with insane brides, pushy best friends and crazy mothers?!

Well, now it's coming to Ireland, but don't get too excited – it's not staying.

The show's star Randy Fenoli will be appearing on The Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ One this Saturday and he's looking for brides that might need a bit of help when it comes to choosing their dresses.

He'll also be sharing his tips on how to make the most of your individual style on your wedding day.

Ray and Randy are looking for brides to send in some photos of potential dresses and he'll then give his expert advice.

If you fancy taking part, send an email to raydarcyshow@rte.ie with the subject RANDY. Tell them why you want to go on the show and give them your number.

Good luck ladies!


The internet went mental over the weekend when rumour kicked-off that Jennifer Aniston's top-secret wedding dress had finally been revealed. 

Sadly however, it later emerged that the gown was not connected to the actress in any way – and that it had all been a big misunderstanding. 

Still, we shouldn't lose hope just yet – it seems that we may have indeed been given a sneak-peak of her wedding day attire before… on reality TV show, Say Yes To The Dress.

Say what, now!?

Yup, TMZ has done some stellar digging, and discovered an April airing of the hit show which reveals an awful lot. 

In it, a bride is seen trying on options in Manhattan's swish Kleinfeld boutique – eventually weighing-up the merits of a €7,600 gown from Mark Zunino

She initially feels the price-tag is too steep until, that is, an employee reveals: "I know the dress really well – I actually picked this dress for Jen Aniston to wear on her wedding day."

She adds: "In my head, this is Jennifer Aniston's dress."

The piece in question – a sweeping silk sheath gown  – is a classic, somewhat understated creation. 

It features a stunning deep illusion neckline and plunging back with buttons in silk crepe and lace, and has a chapel train and cap sleeves.

The gown is also an exclusive to the Chelsea bridal boutique. Indeed, the upmarket outlet is the exclusive stockist of pieces from the Mark Zunino bridal label, which was founded in 2011.

TMZ has now asked Kleinfeld for a comment, and the website says it is currently waiting to hear back. Mail Online approached the designer himself, to which a representative replied: "We can neither confirm nor deny that we designed the gown for Jennifer Aniston's special day.

"We can confirm that we did do sketches of wedding dress options for her."

Interestingly, LA-native Mr Zunino has already dressed Jen's BFF Courteney Cox for the red carpet.

Jennifer, 46, married actor Justin Theroux, 44, in a top-secret ceremony on August 5 at their €20m LA home. They have been together for four years, and engaged since August 2012.
