TLC’S “SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA” RETURNS ON MARCH 8
Special appearances by ABC News’ Linsey Davis and the band Train in back-to-back premiere episodes
On Friday, March 8 at 9pm ET/PT, TLC brings back a new season of SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA with back-to-back premiere episodes. 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 premiere 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.
SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA is taped inside Bridals by Lori, one of the largest and busiest bridal salons in the south. The series follows a variety of particular and strong-willed southern brides and their entourages as they set out to find their perfect wedding dress. SAY YES TO THE DRESS: ATLANTA is produced by North South Productions for TLC.
