From the star of Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta , now filming its eleventh season for TLC, comes a book and a life-makeover movement for women approaching fifty and beyond.
Move over, girlfriend, Lori Allen is here to help you say yes to what’s next! Star of Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, Lori Allen uses her confidence, wisdom, and signature humor not only to help young brides on their most important day ever but also to model to them and their mothers how to live out the coming years as the best of their lives.
Lori Allen is owner/operator of one of the biggest and busiest bridal mega-salons in the country, Atlanta’s Bridals by Lori. But she’s also a wife, mother, grandmother, and breast cancer survivor.
Whether you’re feeling invisible, disappearing into the fabric of your couch a little more every year, or simply being indecisive about what’s next, Lori offers herself as the poster child of what to do, not do, and how to see your way through the unexpected.
In Say Yes to What’s Next she addresses essential issues, such as
don’t let yourself go,
marriage is awesome, but it’s no fairytale,
keep your mouth shut and your heart open to your kids (and they’ll bring you grandkids),
make time to parent your parents,
maintain a close circle of girlfriends,
get off the couch and live your passion,
take charge of your money, and
what to do when life gives you a faceplant.
Say Yes to What’s Next is a life makeover and therapy session from a relatable you-can-and-you-should-do-this straight-shooter as Lori helps women shape their own futures with confidence, style, and sass.
Say Yes to What’s Next is an honest and easy read by Lori Allen that offers advice and life lessons to live your best life no matter your age!
I love Lori Allen! I have watched her help brides find their perfect wedding dress on ‘Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta’ for years. She adds her signature humor, sass, and class to this book. You can expect heartfelt and truthful chapters along with a ‘Girlfriend’s Guide’ that breaks every chapter down with the main points of the chapter.
This book is a memoir with life tips to help readers grow and learn to not be afraid of change. I loved that she was so open when it came to her personal and professional life. She talked about her battle with cancer, her struggles with aging, and gives some pretty great advice along the way. I feel like this book can help any woman because as we age I feel like we all deal with struggles with our appearance, emotions, health (both physical and mental), and our self-confidence. Through sharing her experiences she details how she felt and how/what she had to do to feel more like herself again.
I give Say Yes to What’s Next 5 stars. Readers can expect Lori’s Southern charm and class the entire book. She tells it like it is and gives you tools that she has learned along the way. Out of all the life lessons and advice she gives throughout the book she just wants readers to never be afraid to be who they are no matter what age you are.
