DUBAI, UAE, Jan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- STARZPLAY, the leading SVOD service in the MENA region, partners with Discovery to present its 'Original', Say Yes to the Dress Arabia, available to stream exclusively from Feb. 11, 2022, with two episodes released each week.

The show, a STARZPLAY Original, is coming to the Middle East for the first time and gives brides from the region a once-in-lifetime opportunity to feature on the show and find their perfect wedding dress.

Shot at the Hazar Haute Couture in Dubai which houses an unrivalled collection of bridal dresses that perfectly accommodated the bridal budgets ranging from $615 to $14,000.

The show captures the emotional journeys of brides-to-be, bundled with the show's trademark fun family drama, as each loved one holds their own opinion on the dress. Hosted by renowned Lebanese celebrity stylist, Khalil Zein, an expert and in-demand stylist in the Arab world, Khalil has dressed many celebrities from across the region, including Haifa Wehbe, Nancy Ajram and more.

Khalil Zein said: "It is an honour to be part of a show with such an iconic legacy and it brings me great pride to be part its first regional appearance. The process of helping the brides, from different backgrounds, was a fruitful challenge. I am very excited for the viewers to watch what we worked so hard to put together."
