(Los Angeles, Ca.) It's the moment Mommy's been waiting for - Katherine is getting married! DC CUPCAKES returns on Friday, November 11 at 10 PM ET/PT with "My Sweet Wedding," a one-hour television event that goes behind the scenes as the sisters of Georgetown Cupcake plan Katherine's dream wedding. Leading into the big event, that same night at 9 PM ET/PT, is a special episode of SAY YES TO THE DRESS, where Randy and team help Katherine find the gown of her dreams... but will she say "I do" to the dress?
From scouting locations to finding the perfect dress to the long awaited walk down the aisle, DC CUPCAKES: MY SWEET WEDDING gives exclusive access to Katherine's big day. While the bride-to-be works closely with celebrity party planner Sharon Sacks on all the details of her extravagant California wedding, Sophie does the heavy lifting in the store on top of planning several surprises as matron-of-honor. Katherine has no idea what Sophie is cooking up for her - an elaborate bridal shower with a surprise cupcake creation and a nine foot tall wedding cake tower made of 5,000 cupcakes. But the stress and strain of planning takes its toll on both sisters, and it's a fight to the finish to get Katherine down the aisle in the dress of her dreams for the night of her life.
Paving the way for "My Sweet Wedding" at 9 PM ET/PT is a special SAY YES TO THE DRESS episode following the sisters of DC Cupcakes to Kleinfeld Bridal to find the wedding dress of Katherine's dreams. Katherine thinks she knows what dress she wants, but when she tries it on, she isn't wowed. Randy and Audrey hatch a plan and pick a similar dress by the same designer, but it still isn't quite right. Inspired, Randy and Audrey combine the two gowns and suddenly it's perfect for bride Katherine, who says yes. But when it comes time to face a giant price tag, Katherine has a case of cold feet and looks to Sophie to make the decision. Sophie puts her foot down and forces Katherine to follow her heart and make a decision that will live with her for the rest of her life.
DC CUPCAKES: MY SWEET WEDDING is produced by Big Fish Entertainment for TLC. Executive producers for Big Fish Entertainment are Dan Cesareo, Doug DePriest and Mark Finkelpearl, Terence Noonan and Mary Pelloni. SAY YES TO THE DRESS is produced by Half Yard Productions for TLC.
