Lori Allen Biography

When you think working mom, girl next door, successful entrepreneur, and breast cancer survivor ­­-- you think Lori Allen.

Allen has virtually grew up in the bridal business. Allen opened a small bridal boutique in Atlanta, Georgia, two weeks after graduating from the all-female Columbia College in South Carolina. Always a go-getter, failure was not an option for this girl from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Through many years of dedication and hard work, Allen grew her small boutique into one of the largest full service bridal salons in the nation.

Today, Bridals by Lori services brides from all over the world and is also home to the TLC hit show, "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta." Allen has the distinction of starring in the longest-running reality show ever filmed in Atlanta. In "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta," Allen uses her vast knowledge of wedding dress styles, trends, and fits to assist brides-to-be in their search for the ideal wedding gown, and her sassy, straightforward attitude has become a signature element of the show.

In 2012, Allen was diagnosed with breast cancer and what she did with her diagnosis turned something horrible into something positive. 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.

Since then, Allen has spoken all over the United States and Canada promoting breast cancer awareness and sharing her story with countless women.

In 2020, Allen released her debut book, "Say Yes to What’s Next: How to Age with Elegance and Class While Never Losing Your Beauty and Sass!," which she hopes will inspire women, especially those over age 50, to make the most of their remaining time.
