Most brides dream of walking down the aisle on their wedding day.

But for "Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta" bride Lauren Garcia, walking isn't an option.

In July 2011, Garcia was shot in the back during a random shooting spree in Atlanta. The incident left her paralyzed from the waist down. As a result of the horrific incident, the 23-year-old bride will have to make her way down the aisle in a wheelchair.

In this exclusive preview clip, the bride-to-be talks about getting used to the idea that she'll be spending the rest of her life as a paraplegic. "It's really hard sometimes," she says, holding back tears. "But the fight's not over."

"Say Yes To The Dress: Atlanta" airs Friday at 9pm EST on TLC
