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.
From superstar athletes and real life heroes to singing superstars and beautiful models, season eight features a robust lineup of guest appearances all hoping for a “Say Yes” moment for themselves or their loved ones.
