Birmingham-based bridal designer Heidi Elnora is no stranger to the camera. After being featured on TLC’s Project Runway in 2005, Elnora returned to Birmingham and launched her own boutique, titled heidi elnora, in November 2006.
Since then, Elnora has quickly gained fame in the bridal community for her designs, launching lines such as her distinguished and unique “Build-a-Bride” line that allows brides to choose classic dresses and add custom touches.
Now, Elnora has landed her own television show on TLC. “Bride by Design” premiered last Friday at 8 p.m. and will continue for ten episodes. In the show, Elnora and her team use a little Southern flair and excellent customer service to cater to unique brides for their special day. Viewers get an inside look as they design and create one-of-a-kind gowns for one-of-a-kind brides. Taking bridal dreams from imagination to reality, the series follows Heidi as she sketches, sews and fits each customized gown to match the personalities of each bride-to-be.
