Plot Synopsis

BRIDE BY DESIGN is a half-hour reality series that follows Alabama-based bridal designer and PROJECT RUNWAY alum Heidi Elnora, as she and her dedicated team at her bridal boutique design and create one-of-a-kind gowns for one-of-a-kind brides. Heidi's innovative approach to designing wedding dresses includes offering brides a variety of dresses from her heidi elnora and hello darling lines, as well as the option to design their own dress through her Build-A-Bride trademark. Build-A-Bride allows brides-to-be the ownership in designing their dress, choosing a style from 15 basic white dresses and more than 25 unique add-on pieces for a couture experience without couture pricing. Each half-hour episode of this series follows Heidi as she sketches, sews and fits customized gowns to match the personalities of two brides-to-be, including: Tia, who requests not one, but two entirely different looks for her ceremony and reception, as she tries to compete with eight fellow baseball wives who got engaged in the same year to Atlanta Braves teammates; Kayla, who creates a gown that fits her special day and matches her late mother's veil; one bride who wants to look like a Russian princess in her custom wedding dress with an intense need for sparkle; a bride who is torn between lace and something with a little more wow when she designs her own Build-A-Bride gown; and many more brides looking for their dream wedding dress. TLC first aired BRIDE BY DESIGN as a half-hour special on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, more than eight months before the program returned for its series premiere.
On Friday, April 24, 2015 from 9:30-10:30pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the season finale of BRIDE BY DESIGN, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first episode (9:30pm), "Absolute Perfection," Heidi's former intern, Molly, is back and has high expectations for the team to create the perfect custom dress she's planned for years. Felisha needs Heidi's help when she is torn between a dress that's sweet or a bit sassy from the Build-a-Bride line. Then, in the season finale (10pm), "Celebrities and Princesses," Laura Beth wants to feel like a celebrity in one of Heidi's custom gowns, but she keeps changing her mind about making the dress simple or dramatic. After a fairytale proposal, Taylor asks Heidi to help create a Build-a-Bride dress inspired by her fiance.
