Wedding dress disaster turns to miraculous save
An initially furious bride-to-be has revealed the hilarious chain of events after she complained about her wedding dress.
She ordered the dress online and fired off an "angry letter" to online store Milly Bridal after her tulle and diamante fishtail bridal gown looked "nothing like what I had ordered".
She also attached two pictures for reference of the dress to show the online store.
After the online store received her email, the company informed the bride-to-be that she'd put the dress on inside out.
“Please put it on the right way,” the letter stated.
After finding humour in the incident, the bride-to-be posted it online.
“Two weeks ago my wedding dress came in,” she wrote.
“I was really upset about the look of it and sent an angry email to the company wanting to return it.
“I took pictures of me in the dress telling them it looked nothing like what I had ordered.
“Well, today I received this response from the company: ‘You put the dress on inside out, please put it on the right way.’
“Who knew that they shipped wedding dresses inside out?! The dress actually turned out beautiful.”
The bride-to-be was embarrassed about lashing out at the online bridal store and went public to make up for the angry email.
“Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much school we put behind us, we’re still going to lack common sense, like how to put clothes on properly,” she laughed.
The dress ended up looking beautiful once it was on the right way.
“They probably didn’t appreciate my angry email, this post is the least I could do to thank them for ‘fixing’ the problem (me, the problem was me).
“But I hope they appreciated a good laugh. And you all too - during this tense time of the election results, I hope you take comfort in the fact I was not on your presidential ballot nor will I ever be running for any office.
“I’ll help save your life but seriously - please don’t call me to dress you, apparently I have trouble doing that for myself!”
