Another fine mess

By Stephanie - 05/03/2010 00:01 - United States

Today, I bought my wedding dress and sat it on the bed while I went to buy matching shoes. When I came home, I saw my soon to be husband on the bed sitting next to my wedding dress. Turns out he spilt Coca-Cola on the dress and was trying to get it out with carpet cleanser. FML

Especially since he isn't supposed to see it before the wedding!

she probably didn't think he'd even be home or something, it's bad luck for the groom to see the wedding dress beocre the wedding. and this just goes to show that's true lol. fyk op

it didn't I posted something and it keeps disapering and that "before" post was meant for the one I made that's gone now lol.

I've been having a lot of trouble for the past few hours with my comments not showing up too... I've been trying on both my normal computer as well as my phone :-(

yeah same here. I'll leave and come back and it's gone then leave and come back and it's there.

snickerdoodles is now no longer annoying. she's not totally serious anymore :D good girl snickers. you have learnt well.

Oh yeah, because someone who spills a drink by accident is caveman stupid. And how dare a young man not know how to get stains out of white delicates! How could you EVER marry a man who has accidents and doesn't know proper stain removal protocal!! I believe it's a pretty honest mistake here. He had the right intentions, though he should have just confessed that it happened immediately after the incident instead of trying to get the stain out himself.

Man, my dad's never even touched a washing machine in his 40 years. I don't think he's that big an idiot for using carpet cleaner - he's just a bloke.

First off Y"kinda"DI for leaving it out where a pet could poop on it (aka any generic accident)/ your fiance could spill something / etc IDK about the whole "can't see the dress before the day"... kinda sounds like the whole no sex before marriage thing... nice tradition but yea..."Can't see the dress on you before the day" is easy to do and I agree with that but can't see the dress at all is ehhh for me. If I'm with someone to the level where I'm engaged with a planned marriage, I know I would trust her judgment and whatever she picked would be fine by me (aka if I saw it I wouldn't be all "that's it...")...heck any input from me (a guy who loves a T and shorts) would probably result in a worse decision...just being honest :-)

why wasn't your dress in a dress bag to begin with?

^^Exactly, sucks to be you OP, but YDI for leaving it laid outlike that

i bet it wouldve been worth it if he said "Hi, Billy Mays here" as you walked in...

Ha. Reincarnation fail. That is awful, OP, but yeah, YDI.

All of the eight women I have married always kept that dress under lock and key and safe. Only letting it leave its plastic prison to be worn to try it on and at the wedding day. Half of them still have the dresses.

Seriously, op deserves it. Should have left it in the bag for one, and two, you should not have your wedding dress where your future Mr. can see it. Its not superstitious or anything, but more of the element of surprise when he first sees you as you make your way down the aisle. You want to take his breath away!

Agreed with #1. Why the hell would you just leave it out like that? Apparently, mine is hidden away somewhere at my Grandma's house. Mostly so I can't see it, but also to keep it safe for when I actually get to use it. Most wedding dresses are in garment bags. Hell, even nice dresses at cheaper stores are put in bags. So, idk why you left your dress out and unprotected!

My homecoming dresses from middle school don't even leave the bag. Sorry but YDI

Spittake in the office FTW! Thanks for that. :-)

Wives are like underwear.... They should be changed every three days, and you never wear another mans underwear;)

#15, it's nothing to do with no sex before marriage. It's just a dumb superstition. And of course you don't get to help decide on the wedding dress. It's not your ******* dress.

Who sits down on a bed next to a wedding dress and then decides it's a good time to crack open a can of coke?

I would have shit my self ( jokes) I would have been so mad though

As I was reading the FML I thought she was going to come home to find her husband in the wedding dress

haha! i get things outta my clothes with carpet cleaner..

omg seriously im so sorry ur going to marry the fool ydi

your saying your sorry and op's soon-to-be hisband is a fool yet you still say she deserves it?

*shudders* at that ever happenning to me

Easily fixed, just ask him to buy you a new dress! Don't worry about that seeing the dress before the wedding nonsense,get what you both like!

"Easily"? Have you seen the prices on wedding dresses?

The wedding is not about the husband, it's about the white dress, the expensive cake and spending more than your girlfriends.

Awww... that sucks! I hate to say it but YDI for leaving it out on the bed I mean come ON it's your freakin wedding dress not some outfit for the night... Hope the soda and carpet cleaner didn't stain. At least you'll be able to tell about it when your old.... LOL

Hey at least he tried to get it out right? I mean at least he didn't try to hide it. Plus, you should have put it away.
