Despite her tragic loss, Thompson shares that the wedding, which took place in October, would remain on schedule.

“Even though Lake’s not here, I know that he wants me to be happy,” she tells the cameras. “I know that.”

The mom of three was unable to pick a dress, so hosts Lori and Monte surprised her at home by bringing a handful of beautiful dresses for her to try on just two days before she walked down the aisle.

“I haven’t been able to try on any dresses and I think part of that is because I’ve been so sad about Lake. I just really haven’t wanted to,” she explains in the ET exclusive preview.

Thompson’s mother chose an A-line ball gown for the bride to try on, while her father opted for a long sleeve lacy dress that’s a bit more fitted. See her mom's choice in the video below.

Although the clip doesn’t reveal the exact dress she chose for the big day, it does show her smiling as she dons her mother and father’s white dress picks.
