"Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" on TLC is a reality series that is a spin-off of of the original "Say Yes to the Dress." The new series is set in one of the largest and busiest bridal salons in the south: Bridals by Lori. The series takes viewers behind the scenes as each particular and strong-willed bride sets out to find her perfect wedding dress. These southern belles keep the staff on their toes in order to ensure they get exactly what they want for their important day. With high expectations, southern brides are well-informed on their favorite bridal designers and expect each of the consultants to be on top of their game. Bridals by Lori recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and sees roughly 10,000 brides annually.

Season 9

This season, Lori and Monte step out of the salon more than ever to help brides find the dress of their dreams, even taking a road trip to Nashville. With surprise brides and last minute dress hunts, the team at Bridals by Lori has their hands full. Also, in a special episode this season, Lori helps her future daughter-in-law find the dress (or dresses) of her dreams. Then, viewers get to follow along as they prepare for the big day and get an inside look at the wedding itself.

Season 8

Throughout the new season, brides from all over the country visit the salon with their entourages and emotional backstories. From picking quick turnaround dresses to appeasing the fiancés and families, Monte, Lori and the whole staff have their hands full finding gowns for each bride.

In one appointment, 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.

Also 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. Niki Taylor also stops in the store to lend fashion and moral support to a deserving bride. Bride Morgan is marrying country music star Jerrod Niemann and has a vision of a dress that will wow the millions of fans who will see it, while bride Lindsay wants to please her father and her fiancé, YouTube star Phil deFranco.

Season 5

Season 5 kicks off with ABC News' Linsey Davis as she brings in her diva-adoring entourage to help her find the perfect gown. While one wants her to look like Beyonce the other is hoping she finds a dress similar to something Grace Jones would wear. But when Linsey finally finds a dress that she really likes, it gets bad ratings from her entourage. Will Linsey go with her gut on this special assignment, or take a pass?

The second episode features an emotional wedding at a Train concert. Bride Sue was distraught when her first husband died suddenly three years ago. But since then, she's found love again and won a contest to get married onstage at the concert. With just ten days until the 'I do's," she's looking for a traditional gown, but her entourage wants this star-for-a-day bride to wear something more rock-n-roll that will really wow the concert crowd.
