A fun and colorful couple is back to share their story after two years of marriage in the new episode of "Say Yes to the Dress" Season 12 Episode 18 "Since the Big Day," which aired last Dec. 26, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on TLC. In this episode, Sonny Mukhopadhyay and Autumn Levine reminisce the time when they were still engaged, Autumn remembers her wedding gown shopping spree and the couple stays stronger with their baby daughter.

Sonny is singing a lullaby to his six-month-old daughter, Liberty, until he forgets the lyrics. He is grateful to have Liberty because he believes his baby makes his relationship with Autumn stronger. He was not expecting to be the father type, but Liberty changed everything.

Two years earlier, Autumn introduced herself as a criminal defense attorney from Staten Island. She worked in Brooklyn, New York. She loved bling and sexy things. She also introduced her fiance Sonny who was a real estate agent. She shared that she met Sonny in college. She believed Sonny would love her even if she falls down or gets fat.

Back to the present, Autumn agrees with her younger self because she thinks she is fat, yet Sonny still loves her. Sonny cannot understand her because he thinks she still looks sexy.

Sonny proposed to Autumn at Central Park. He told her they would just take pictures. When Autumn turned around, Sonny was already kneeling on one knee while showing her the ring. He was glad she did not see the ring fall on the ground seconds before the proposal.

Presently, Sonny believes that if the ring fell on the water, he would still be single. He also thinks that he would dive to look for it since the ring costs more than $80,000.

In a flashback, Autumn shared that she loved shopping, so she was thankful to have an upperclass lifestyle with Sonny. Sonny was a very successful real estate agent and helped run the family business. However, Sonny had an unusual habit of referring to himself in the third person, which made Autumn crazy. He was like "Sonny works in the real estate" and "Sonny says that's not happening."

The hilarious part is Sonny still refers to himself in the third person. Autumn rolls her eyes when he said he would also try teaching his daughter to cry in third person. He wants a "third person kind of house." Autumn clearly does not want to take part in it.

Years ago, the couple's wedding was divided into two.different ceremonies. One was Jewish for Autumn, and the other was Hindu to reflect Sonny's heritage.

Sonny's mother was willing to spend for the wedding. The couple's original budget was $500,000.

While looking for the perfect dress, Autumn told the sales staff that she wanted blings and sexy gowns. She also added that she would purchase two dresses — one for the ceremony and one for the reception. When the sales lady asked how much was her budget, Autumn confidently said she had no limit for the budget. Deep down, Sonny wished there was.

In the present, Autumn defends herself that Sonny could afford it anyway. Still, Sonny finds the two dresses very expensive and says he could already buy a car with the amount spent.

Back to the bridal salon, Sonny went outside before Autumn tried the dresses. He wanted to see the gowns for the first time on the wedding day.

Autumn tried the gown with a sexy corset but did not like the skirt. The sale staff gladly said they can change the skirt. After an alternative for the skirt was shown, Autumn said yes to the dress. The ceremony dress costs $22,000.

The second dress Autumn liked was sheer and full of bling. She thought it would be perfect for the reception. When Autumn asked how much was the dress, she was surprised to hear it costs $24,000. Despite the large sum of money, she still wanted to purchase the dress. The total cost of the dresses was $50,111. Sonny was shocked with the price and thought he would be bankrupt. However, he just wanted to make his future bride happy. 

Meanwhile, in the present, Autumn says that Sonny still wants to have another baby. He reminds her that he wants a total of four children. She thinks having four children is unreasonable. She will settle for two.

Sonny says marrying Autumn is the best thing that ever happened in his life. He is happy everyday with his family and dog. Autumn thinks Sonny is her best friend. She says marriage is fun, and everyone should try it.
