Today, my maid of honor, who offered to take care of my wedding dress before the D-Day, left it near her open window during heavy rain. My dress is now ruined, and she's backed out due to stress. I'm supposed to be getting married tomorrow. FML

On my sister's wedding day, I was the seashell girl (it was at a beach so I was kinda like a flower girl) and I hardly threw any seashells because I liked them. Then I started picking the ones I threw afterwards because I was young. And one of my brothers accidentally deleted video footage of the kiss. And we were all late to the wedding so things weren't exactly perfect lol but my sister said she still had an amazing day and she just laughs at all the flaws. So OP, don't worry about having a "perfect" wedding, just marry who you love, have good memories to laugh at, have fun, and Congrats! :)

Umm it probably is a bad sign OP that you refer to your wedding day as D day. And it is probably a sign that your dress got ruined. I would run for the hills

Well on my parents wedding day, my father had food poisoning, had to bail his best man out of jail the morning of, and his brother showed up already drunk. I don't think anyone has a perfect wedding

I spent $15 on a beautiful dress I loved, over $300 in a cake I loved. The cake fell during delivery and the baker was supposed to fix/replace it but choose not to BC she was at a baby shower. Most of my family didn't show, my husband was late to rehearsal from work, and his phone was off. But it was one of my happiest days. Oh, and I had horrible morning sickness from the baby I didn't know I was pregnant with!

@#1, I know you're trying to help by sharing your own situation, but your wife being sick during the reception on her wedding day really isn't the same as having a fucked up wedding dress the day before the wedding. Two totally different things...

#114 The dress doesn't really matter and the bride will get over it. I guarantee you she will laugh at it in the future. Life is to short to sweat the small stuff.

There are wedding dress stores that let you buy off the rack. You won't be able to get the same exact one probably but you can get one quickly.

#6, wedding dresses are often made out of dry-clean-only fabric and typically get ugly blotches and/or texture changes even just from water, let alone whatever else might've been in the rain water.

OP, I'm guessing it's too late by the time you see this (or perhaps by the time you made your post), but I'd call all your local dry cleaners, explain your predicament, and see whether any of them can do anything at all for the dress in time. If they can't, call the shop where you bought it (or any others in the vicinity) and see if they'd have time to do an emergency-quick alteration for you on whatever they have in stock that you can see yourself wearing, or call all of your local theatres and see whether any have a wedding dress on hand you could rent for the day. Or get married in your favorite "regular" dress, no matter that it's not a traditional wedding one -- you'll have great stories to tell later! And congratulations on your wedding!

I dunno, I saved a white wedding dress from a similar predicament (fell in a puddle), barely three hours before the wedding, using a sponge and a hairdryer.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

Hopefully the dry cleaner can fix it :) if anything, EMERGENCY trip to a bridal boutique and buy a nice sample, if they fix it in time, perfect! If not, you have a back up!

#29, Alright, alright, alright! You are my kinda girl! Why don't you come over to my house, I just bought a fresh roll of masking tape, er, I mean, duct tape . . . wait, let me double-check.

Okay Perdix, I should've seen that one coming, I probably should've mentioned that I don't own leather, but some clothes just can't handle rain. Ah well, if you do decide to kidnap me, I suggest you use masking tape :)
