You call Diann, baby! WE tv's original series, I DO OVER, premieres Sunday, July 24th at 10pm ET/PT with six one-hour episodes, as part of WE tv's "WEDDING SUNDAY" lineup. Couples who've experienced disastrous weddings receive a much deserved do-over as celebrity event designer, Diann Valentine, along with Celebrations (www.celebrations.com), surprise them with the perfect wedding day they missed out on the first time.
