Get Bridal Style Advice from Celebrity Television host Sam Saboura

Your sweetheart popped the question and you said yes! It almost feels too good to be true – you’re finally able to start planning the wedding you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little girl or boy. All things wedding quickly take over your life and Pinterest board. Should I wear my hair up or down with a particular dress style? Should my bridesmaids wear long or short dresses? How can I incorporate my theme in every aspect of my wedding?

Luckily for you, celebrity wedding stylist Sam Saboura is coming to Morgantown on March 12, 2016 and you have the chance to meet him and ask questions at the WV Weddings Extravaganza at the WVU Erickson Alumni Center.

Sam Saboura, host of TLC’s Something Borrowed, Something New has styled national bridal campaigns, contributed to numerous magazines and entertainment news programs as an authority on celebrity weddings, and styled both private clients and celebrities for their walk down the aisle. His latest venture is hosting TLC’s hit wedding show Something Borrowed, Something New. The show addresses the classic wedding dilemma: Should a bride wear a beloved family heirloom or buy a new dress that fits her own sense of style? Sam takes brides shopping for the contemporary gowns of their dreams, and they ultimately must make the highly emotional choice between borrowed and new.


WV Weddings magazine readers did a Facebook Q&A session with Sam to get warmed up for the Extravaganza. You can see Sam’s video responses at One bride askes Sam “What advice would you give brides to help them select a style theme that is unique to them?”


“You’re style should inform the wedding a little bit loosely,” says Sam. “I love the idea of cohesion. For certain brides it’s all about a beautiful through line that can be based on color, that can be based on theme like bohemian, romantic, classic, or it can really be based on the wedding dress. Sometimes you find that dress and it really informs the theme of your wedding.”


When asked about choosing the right dress, Sam says, “I think a lot of us get trapped in our world of Pinterest and bridal magazines and we fixate on certain designers. That should be a great inspiration for you, but what I want you guys to remember is the designer, the price, none of that matters when you find the perfect dress. The dress sometimes finds you.”


Tickets are still available for the WV Weddings Extravaganza for $10 at In addition to meeting Sam Saboura, the Extravaganza brings jaw-dropping décor styled by Little Black Dress Events, brunch provided by the state’s best caterers, thousands of dollars’ worth of giveaways, and access to top wedding vendors. All questions can be directed to Sarah Shaffer at or 304.413-.0104.
