>> good morning.
>> great to see you. match with a little bit of color.
>> i got the memo.
>> i'm glad. let's talk about why you wanted to hit the road?
>> this is one of the most exciting endeavors i have ever done. there's so many girls out there in ohio, san diego , that just don't have it in their budget to come to new york city to shop for couture wedding gowns . i chose 200 wedding gowns, put them in a bus. some need a train, i need a bus, took them across the country and put them in bridal salons.
>> you must have gotten squealing.
>> it was incredible, so much fun. i really thought i would go out there and change these girls lives. what happened was they changed my life. the stories were so compelling and so moving and so powerful, it was really wonderful. i can't wait for you to see it.
>> you said you've been in this profession for a long time. how do you explain why the dress is so important.
>> it really symbolizes a girl becomeing a woman. she teps out from her family, becomes her own, a celebration of the union of a man and woman, starting their brand, a new family. i call it a brand because they are really representing their style and the dress kind of sets the tone for that style.
>> speaking of that, it is june. it is time for a lot of weddings. while we have you here, we thought we'd put you to work and show us four of make of the hottest styles, trends of this year's season. one of them is called the raw edge dress. explain it.
>> it's a three-dimensional texture raw edge trend that's really going on right now. lots of movement, lots of texture, a pleated sweetheart bodes, organza mini skirt , shoes. you've got to have great shoes for a dress like this. look at the beautiful clutch for accessory.
>> what's interesting about this dress, it's so architectural. would you mind turning around so people can see the back of the dress. very architectural how the folds are working. raw edges --
>> see the edges, they are raw. no hemming on the edges. cut and left raw. great for an afterparty, the second dress.
>> it would be a great dress to kick your shoes off with and get on the dance floor with. thank you so much for showing us that dress. the next dress worn by autumn. it's another trend, the accessories trend.
>> accessories, retro inspired 1950s , '60s look. the accessories you can see she's got beautiful hair pins in the hair.
>> let's let her turn around and show people those hair pins.
>> you've got to see the back. by haley page, silk. great for a vineyard, any destination wedding, retro. speaking of destination weddings i'm doing an event at grabbed central terminal if anybody wants to come out and see me. i'm going to be there with sandals handing out free vacations and books and all kinds of stuff.
>> i bet you get a big crowd responding to that. autumn, thank you so much. another trend. obviously this season has really been about color.
>> now in wedding dresses , which is interesting. this is modelled by debra.
>> a lot of designers have shown full blown color on the runway like black and purples and reds. howeverf you're really not ready to do this, this is a way, a sherbet gown, a pastel light color, which is great. if you didn't want to do the whole gown, accessorize with the shoes. really the trend started from carrie with s" sex and the city ." look at the hairpiece.
>> turn around and show the hairpiece. that's beautiful. i love how it's dragging on the floor in a big, gorgeous way.
>> very much for a youthful bride, somebody that wants to look like a princess on their widthi wedding day, in a cathedral.
>> the last dress modelled by vanessa.
>> this started with kate middleton with the lace sleeves. we've sashed it with a beautiful belt. also beautiful flowers in the hair which makes it very fresh and modern, beaded chantilly lays, trumpet line.
>> when you say sashed it, you put that sash on the dress?
>> yes. that's a really big trend right now, adding sashes, accessories. if you see every look we added accessories to change the look. if you didn't want to wear it for the wedding, you could wear it without the sash and then wear it for the reception.
>> it's especially lovely.
>> a delicate tonal beading.
>> let's bring out all the models. you look so beautiful all of you. you also say how you're feeling on the inside matters as much as how you look on the outside. your trick to this, something you call three es.
>> if it doesn't follow my three es, my company or myself, we don't do it. three es or educate, elevate and empower. most brides haven't done this before. they need to be educated in bridal. i try to help them through the process. elevate their self-confidence and empower them to go forth through the wedding day and hopefully their lives and feel good about themselves.
>> randy fenoli, always great to see you.
>> thank you. i want to thank tlc for getting on board and giving us the trust for the new show.
>> thank you. we want to mention the premier of "randy to the rescue" friday night at 10:00 , 9:00 central time
