Don't worry, my wife was sick on our wedding day. She was in the bathroom for more then half the reception. And it was still a great day.
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! :)
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!
D-Day is June 6, so you should have plenty of time to dry out the dress and get someone else to be you maid of honor.
I'm sure it will be fine, OP. Our greatest talents shine through when everything seems to be going wrong.
How is the dress ruined? Do you own a hairdryer? If yes, you can probably fix the dress.
#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!
See if you can quickly find a rental dress in your size? And i hope u have fun , that is all that matters
