Later, bride Ebony shocks her entourage with a gown twist. Then in the night's second new episode, "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?," Dana has her heart set on channeling the bridal look worn by her pop star idol, Beyonce. Caroline's dress vision is threatened by her very opinionated entourage. Elizabeth hopes her fitting will be a lasting memory for her mom who is unable to attend her wedding. Later in the season, women's basketball superstars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson come into the salon for a dress that takes Glory out of her gym gear and into a glam wedding gown. Singer/songwriter Jessie James Decker also surprises a bride that fell in love with one of her songs while healing from a tragic accident. In another visit, Naomi Judd comes to the salon to help her assistant pick out the perfect wedding gown. lso this season, NFL star Maurice Jones-Drew heads to Bridals by Lori to help pick out a wedding dress for his sister, but an unlimited budget is not what Maurice had in mind when offering to pay for her dress.

On Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT, TLC premiered the tenth season of SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA. Season 10 takes fans back inside Bridals by Lori, the premier bridal salon of the South, where business is booming like never before! The endearingly outrageous wedding duo, Lori and Monte, continues to make brides' dreams come true, while also infusing every visit with their signature charm. From a groom who donates his kidney to his fiancee, to a navy veteran who is dealing with the effects of PTSD, Lori and Monte go to extreme lengths to ensure that every bride-to-be has a unique and unforgettable shopping experience. Celebrity guests this season include THE BACHELOR'S Britt Nilsson, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and the fiancee of Apollo Nida, the ex-husband of REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA's Phaedra Parks. Viewers will also see Lori and Monte head to the Big Apple for Bridal Fashion Week, and Lori's daughter, Mollie, will return to the shop for a few weeks ... but this time, she's taking charge! In the season premiere, newbie consultant Becca takes on her first bridal appointment after only two weeks in training! It's no easy task, especially since the bride, Lindsey, is getting married in three months. Not only must Becca find Lindsey a dress she can get in time, but she also has to please Lindsey's outspoken mom and family, who don't seem to agree on anything. Kisha, the second bride featured in the episode, is in search of a dreamy dress for her upcoming fantasy beach wedding. Overwhelmed by a troubled past, a future husband who is a former NBA player, and more drama than one girl can handle, Kisha is more than ready for her happily ever after.

The eleventh season of SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA premiered on Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 8-10pm ET/PT on TLC. Business is booming at Bridals by Lori, so it's all hands on deck as Lori Allen, Monte Durham and the rest of the team work to ensure every bride and bridesmaid has an unforgettable experience. This season fans will see Jessa Duggar Seewald from COUNTING ON, who suggests a modest wedding gown for her more adventurous sister-in-law; country music duo Maddie & Tae, who are in a time crunch to find bridesmaid dresses for Maddie's crew before they leave for their big tour; and Bring It On actress Brandi Williams, who is looking for something different from her traditional red carpet glamour. Bridesmaids take center stage this season, filling the salon with big personalities and even bigger drama. Viewers will see a maid of honor who is more of a bridezilla than her identical twin sister who is actually getting married, a same-sex couple looking to make 11 bridesmaids with vastly different styles happy and a bride who envisions her bridal party in an "urban mermaid" look that's more swimwear than wedding attire. Lori and Monte have their work cut out for them but will do everything to ensure each member of the bridal party falls in love and says yes to the dress! Viewers will also see the Bridals by Lori team come together to keep business running as usual after Lori suffers an accident that keeps her out of the salon for an extended period of time.
On Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT, TLC premiered "The Perfect Shade of Blue," the season finale of SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA.
