Love and basketball takes on a whole new meaning when engaged WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson pick a wedding dress on Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta tonight! Brittney, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, went with Glory, who plays for the Tulsa Shock, to search for a unique wedding dress that would suit her style. And even though Glory was nervous when she arrived, everyone turned emotional when she found the dress.
“Being on the show was super exciting!” Brittney says. “I was nervous, but I knew at the end of the day we would have a dress. It also let me know how real things are. When I saw Glory in her dress I just couldn’t keep the tears back!”
Bridals by Lori owner Lori Allen was also happy with Glory’s choice: an embellished strapless gown with a beautiful champagne hue.
“Dressing Glory was not as I had envisioned,” Lori says. “I expected this fabulous athlete — who would not really want to look like a traditional bride. I’m thinking maybe a pants suit? Boy, was I wrong. Ultimately, Glory was very traditional and was only interested in pleasing Brittany — like most other brides. This is why I love bridal — it keeps you on your toes! In the end, Glory looked glorious (no pun intended).”
