Is it ever sleepytime down South? You wouldn’t think so from all of the Southern-themed series populating the airwaves these days. Amid the housewives and gator getters, Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta returns to TLC for Season 4, and does so with distinctive country flourish. Premiering Aug. 24 at 9pm ET/PT, the bridal gown drama series (yeah, it’s a reality show, but really, is it ever short on drama?) kicks off its new season with a special episode that finds country star Miranda Lambert helping her band mate from The Pistol Annies, Angaleena, to find the perfect wedding gown.
According to the episode description provided by TLC, Angaleena is planning to elope, but because she wants to satisfy her family and friends’ wish to see her in a wedding gown, she’s supposedly humoring them. (Come on, Angaleena — it’s not eloping if everybody knows you’re doing it!) And Angaleena’s entourage isn’t about to let her get away without getting an earful or two of unvarnished Southern opinions.
In addition to Lambert and her pals, Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, which continues its run out of Bridals by Lori — one of Atlanta’s biggest and most bustling bridal salons in the South — welcomes Season 4 with all of the drama you’ve come to expect, from protective Southern dads, divorced parents, jealous sisters, and even a professional cheerleading squad.
Yep, shopping for a wedding dress can be a complicated, over-emotional and exhausting experience, and when you’re doing it the Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta way, they make sure that it is so.
