Lori Allen        

Founder & Owner of Bridals by Lori; Star of "Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta;" Breast Cancer Survivor

Lori Allen is one of the world’s foremost experts on bridal couture and is best known for starring in TLC network’s reality show "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta," as well as "Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids," which are filmed on-site at her Atlanta-based bridal salon, Bridals by Lori.

Allen opened Bridals by Lori just two weeks after graduating from all-girl Columbia College in South Carolina. Four decades later, the store has grown to become one of the premier bridal salons in North America, and brides from as far away as Russia and Australia visit Bridals by Allen to find their perfect dresses. TLC’s most popular wedding program is shown in over 120 countries, making Allen an international celebrity.

In 2012, Allen made the courageous decision to share her personal battle with breast cancer in the TLC special "Say Yes to the Cure: Lori’s Fight," which won the 2013 Realscreen Award for Best Health & Well Being Programming. Today, she travels the nation speaking about breast cancer and raising awareness for early detection. Today, Allen's true-to-life depiction of her struggle to beat the disease is used as a cancer education tool and continues to inspire women around the world.

Her debut book, "Say Yes to What’s Next," is inspiring a lifestyle movement for women of all ages, particularly women over 50. Armed with lessons learned from her own experience and a major dose of her signature humor, Allen is ready to guide women as they take control of their lives and choose their own answers to 'What’s Next?'

Allen’s role as a bridal expert, successful female business entrepreneur, TV personality and breast cancer survivor has led her to be interviewed by top-tier media outlets including CNN, ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s Today and The Wall Street Journal.
