Long shifts and wedding planning can be brutal on the mind on their own, but for one bride-to-be, the combination of the two proved to be too much to handle. Luckily, the results were pretty hilarious.
Deux Aubrey shared the tale of her pre-wedding disaster on Facebook. She’d ordered a beautiful wedding dress online — a nerve-wracking experience, but a necessary one as most dress shops were shut down due to COVID-19 — and she was already worried about what it would look like in real life.
She was horrified to discover that her fears had come true. When she tried on the dress and had her partner lace her up, it looked nothing like the picture she’d seen online. It was a disaster!
All the stress bubbled up, and she wrote an “angry” email to the sellers expressing her discontent. But she wasn’t expecting this reply:
Yep, the reply from the shop informed her that she’d actually put the dress on inside-out!
Once Aubrey flipped the dress with the correct side facing outwards, she remarked that it looked beautiful, looking like it was advertised online. While we’ll have to wait til her wedding to see the updated photos of her in the dress, this is how the gown looked when the bride saw it on the internet:
This is one of those stories that seems too silly to be true, but the bride insisted that it was simply a series of unfortunate events that led to the mix-up.
“No, this was not a joke- I wish it were but I am not that creative. For those asking “how this happened” – no sleep (16-24 hour shifts for a living ), finals week, husband laced me up and was upset also with the look of it , in a rush between jobs, skepticism with the company to begin with, anger at ordering online as opposed to shut down dress shops during a pandemic, stress of wedding and pandemic in general …& I have no idea about fashion or shipping measures for formal dresses – I wear scrubs and tactical boots for a livin -. No, I am not a natural blonde but it fits the bill on this one. Hoping other brides can read this and not panic or get upset when their dress arrives in the mail ….. Don’t act like it couldn’t be any one of you! Live. Laugh. Love. Apologize. Ask your bridesmaids to lace you up not your husband, and hire the wedding planners, ESPECIALLY if this ain’t your industry or jam to begin with.“
Thankfully, this wedding crisis was averted, and this beautiful bride can walk down the aisle in a beautiful gown that’s not inside-out.
