A BRIDE’s $2,300 wedding dress was rendered unwearable by an unfortunate mix-up months before her wedding.
But before she could find out what really happened to her dress, her groom-to-be tried to hide his stunning mistake and get a replacement in time.
Kasia, the owner of Kasia’s Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique in Chicago, Illinois, shared the wild wedding story on TikTok.
“So this groom calls me today, frantic as hell, and he’s practically crying. ‘Can you help me, my bride bought her dress from you last year. I understand that she picked it up … but I have to reorder it.'” She said.
Kasia told him that of course she could order it again, but she was confused.
“I think why is the groom calling me? Is that like a trick to find out information?” She continued.
The groom said he saw the dress but didn’t know it – and was single-minded in ordering it back quickly.
Still trying to fix bugs, Kasia said there might not be enough time to have new alterations made ahead of the November wedding – but if the dress they’d already bought just needed a few alterations, they should bring it to the bride.
But the bridegroom cut her off.
“He said, ‘No, change is not an option. There is nothing to change. I need to know if you can reorder this dress,'” she said.
So Kasia called the manufacturer and was told that due to the adjustments it would take a while for the dress to be remade.
When she called the groom back to pass on this information, he broke down in tears and handed the phone to the bride’s brother.
Eventually she found out what had happened.
“Well, it’s an unfortunate situation,” said the bride’s brother. “You see, the bride gave the dress to our mother for safekeeping.
“And my mother did just that. She put it in her closet and nobody goes in there. Just my mother.”
Then, two weeks ago, her grandmother died.
“Well, Grandpa was buried in his tuxedo. Grandma wanted to be buried in her wedding dress,” the brother said.
“Mom told me and my future brother-in-law to get Grandma’s wedding dress out of the closet. So we did. We didn’t know how to get the box. We took the bag,” he continued.
Kasia was stunned by the shocking mix-up.
She said: “As boys, they didn’t know any better. They didn’t know that there were several wedding dresses in the closet.
“So the boys took this dress and gave it to the funeral home.”
Kasia wanted to know why there was no point in the family seeing granny in the wrong dress.
“Apparently it was a closed coffin,” said Kasia. “So no one knew this wedding dress was at Grandma’s. The bride’s wedding dress is at Grandma’s. This dress is buried six feet below the grandma.”
Grandma has been buried in her wedding dress for two weeks now – and the bride’s mother has just realized what happened.
Now, said Kasia, they, the groom and the bride’s brother, are making every effort to fix the mistake without upsetting the bride – and Kasia is doing her best to get the maker to make it in time.
Kasia’s TikTok videos have gone viral, with millions watching the story and many in shock.
“My heart breaks for her but you can’t make this stuff up!” wrote one commenter.
“That. Is. BANANAS. But solution: maybe the bride should get married in grandma’s wedding dress,” wrote another.
