Love the show; Lori and all her staff are sharp, caring and funny. Love the southern edge to it, even though I'm not a southerner...fun to see the family dynamics of the southern culture. Each episode explores the problems with making decisions about the most important dress and usually includes family emotions about what the bride should decide; when the bride finally comes to grips with her own desires about what is right for her (with the educated assistance of Lori and her staff) it is really more than a one time event. A bride can go from girl to woman with this decision and her world opens up and she can step up to a new level. It is fun and interesting to watch. The "entourage" is usually quite something to behold! Everything from a mother trying on a wedding dress for herself (she was also engaged to be married: so selfish and juvenile to take away from her daughter who was more mature than mom) to "friends" who actually insult the bride to be (jealous? must be!) Anyway, lots to watch and ponder. PS: yes, I like Monte too!! he's kind and funny.
