The hugely popular TLC show Say Yes to the Dress has already launched several spinoffs, including an Atlanta edition and a show focusing on plus-sized brides, the terribly named Big Bliss. It’s clear that the network wants to monetize this franchise, if their slate of new fall spinoffs is any indication.
Say Yes to the Dress: Doggie Ringbearers
When Kleinfelds opens its new Animal Boutique, they start outfitting dogs and the occasional rambunctious cat or ferret in mini-tuxes so that they can be part of Mommy and Daddy’s wedding too. Watch dogs start crying when Diane finds them the perfect cummerbund to hide their problem areas!
Say Yes to the Dress: Angry Bridesmaids
Capitalizing on the success of Bridesmaids and Angry Birds, this show combines the best elements of both. Bridesmaids select dresses by using slingshots to lob themselves into piles of ugly dresses and destroying them.

If your Great-Aunt Viola is determined to spill champagne down the front of her dress at the reception, she can now choose from an entire collection of Pnina Tornai corset-fairy dresses made of special quick-dry sheer fabric.
Say Yes to the Dress: Portland
For the bride who’s more IndieBride.com than TheKnot.com, Kleinfelds’ new Oregon outpost is staffed with consultants who know their vegan-cotton dresses from their vegetarian-cotton dresses and specialize in two-for-one deals on dresses for lesbian weddings.
