Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta star Lori Allen took a nasty tumble while filming season 11 of the TLC show on Wednesday.
Allen’s Instagram account posted about the news, revealing the owner of Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, Georgia, was hospitalized after the incident.
“Lori had a terrible fall today while filming for the 11th season of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta,” reads the post. “[Fashion Director] Monte [Durham] and the film crew were with her, and she is in an Atlanta hospital with her family being treated. Please lift her up in prayer and send healing vibes her way!”
“You all know Lori from TV and public appearances, and she is just the same in person. Lori is a selfless, generous, and devoted wife, mother, and boss. We love you, Lori! Get well fast!”
A rep for TLC didn’t immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Later on Wednesday, Allen’s family posted a second update on the TLC star, revealing she fell after tripping on the train of a gown.
“Lori was injured today during filming for a scene of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta. She tripped on the train of a gown and took a serious fall. Monte, the film crew, and her son, Cory, acted quickly to get help,” they said. “The extent of all of her injuries is not yet fully known, but we have confirmed that her right wrist is broken. Her right arm may be broken and left wrist may be broken as well. Thankfully, her neck is not broken, just very sore. She will more than likely need surgery on her right wrist.”
“Right now, she is banged up and swollen, so we’ll know more after further evaluation by a specialist on Monday,” they continued. “She is in a lot of pain, but she is strong and will heal. Thank you for all of your prayers and outreach! We sincerely appreciate all of your concern and well wishes. We’ll keep you all updated as we learn more.”
Allen owns and operates the full service bridal salon in the Sandy Springs community of Atlanta. Set up like a department store, the nearly 30-year-old salon services brides in a 25,000-square-foot, three-story space.
Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, which profiles brides and bridal parties searching for the perfect dress at Allen’s store, premiered in 2010 on TLC as a spinoff of the original Say Yes to the Dress.
