Lori Allen, star of TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta," is undergoing surgery Friday after tripping on a wedding gown during production of the series.

Allen's business Instagram page, Bridals By Lori, and her personal account have both posted several times over the past few days to keep fans informed.

"Lori is in a tremendous amount of pain today," the most recent post's caption explained Thursday. "It was confirmed today that she broke both of her wrists and has other extensive injuries to her lower right arm. She is immobile which is tough for an active woman like Lori."

The post indicated her surgery would take place on Friday afternoon, and the caption asked fans and friends to pray for her.

"Lori's fall could have been so much worse," it continued. "She is a fighter and will come through this with flying colors, just like she conquered breast cancer in 2013."

An earlier post provided more details before the full diagnosis was available.

"Lori was injured today during filming for a scene of 'Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta,'" said the late Wednesday post. "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."

Monte Durham is the bridal image consultant on "Dress."

"She is in a lot of pain, but she is strong and will heal," the post continued. "Thank you for all of your prayers and outreach! We sincerely appreciate all of your concern and well wishes."

Meanwhile, a post on Thursday noted that Allen was out of the hospital and back home.

"Lori is home and being tended to by her family," said the caption. "She sustained some injuries and will need time to heal. ... She loves all of her fans and we know she greatly appreciates your thoughts and prayers. We also know boss lady, she will want us to keep the ball rolling and making brides' dreams come true in her absence."

"Dress" is in the middle of shooting its 11th season, having premiered in 2010, after the original New York-based "Dress" was a success. Allen, who opened Bridals by Lori in 1980, has been with the Atlanta show since its inception. She was also the focus of a 2012 TLC special, "Say Yes to the Cure: Lori's Fight," about her breast cancer diagnosis.

We wish Lori a speedy recovery!
