Plot Synopsis

SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING NEW is a reality series that follows brides searching for the perfect wedding dress, who choose between a new designer gown and a fashionably reimagined heirloom. In each 30-minute episode, one bride-to-be works with two experts. Designer Kelly Nishimoto reworks a previously worn dress, such as a mother's hand-me-down gown or a best friend's princess gown, so that the vintage attire is updated to reflect the time, venue and personality of the bride. Meanwhile, stylist Sam Saboura takes the future bride on a shopping trip to a bridal salon to pick out a brand-new stylish dress. At the end of each episode, the bride-to-be must choose between a nostalgic one-of-a kind dress and a new and fashionable piece. Sam and Kelly returned for a second season, as TLC showed back-to-back new episodes for the Season 2 premiere of SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING NEW on Friday, January 3, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. In the night's first episode, Jersey bride Nikki was planning a big Italian wedding with a winter wonderland theme -- and she was dying to flaunt her assets in a skin-tight, crystal covered dress. After Sam and Kelly helped that flashy bride, they tried to save the day for Sarah, a self-proclaimed daddy's girl, who wanted to wear her grandma's dress from 1942.
On Friday, October 10, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC aired the Season 3 premiere of SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING NEW, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the season opener, "Something Kelly!," Kelly shocks Sam by revealing she is the bride looking for a dress, but will she give up control as Sam takes her dress shopping for the first time and as guest designer Heidi Elnora helps update her borrowed dress? In the night's second episode, "Bride Gone Wild," tomboy Christie wants to be able to play football in her dress on her big day, which doesn't work with the flouncy sleeves on Mom's dress. Later in the season, Kelly and Sam help these brides: an Army bride who met her husband-to-be while serving in Afghanistan; a Southern belle who clashes with her bling obsessed mother; a body builder whose muscles rip through her dress; and two sisters who are both vying for their mother's cherished dress.
