Kentucky bride writes angry email about ugly wedding dress – but she wore it inside out
When the dress she ordered looked nothing like what was pictured on the website, a Kentucky woman wrote an angry letter to the bridal shop where she bought it – and was mortified when the store responded to tell her it didn’t look good because she was wearing it backwards.
Aubrey from Louisville, shared her “blond moment” on Facebook this weekend, writing that she was “really upset” when her dress arrived and quickly sent an angry email to the company.
Shortly after, the 33-year-old received a surprising response from the store: “You put the dress inside out. Please put it in the right way.
Disappointed: Aubrey from Louisville, Kentucky wrote an angry email to a wedding company when she dressed nothing like what she was online
Not a fan! The 33-year-old health worker asked her husband to tie her up, and both were disappointed with her appearance.
Despite a bit of embarrassment, Aubrey seems to have a sense of humor about her mistake and shared it on a wedding Facebook group.
“Two weeks ago my wedding dress arrived,” she wrote. “I was really upset with its appearance and sent an angry email to the company wishing to return it. I took pictures of myself in the dress telling them it looked nothing like what I ordered.
She also included a few images: First, she posted front and back photos of the dress, a white strapless number with a sweetheart neckline and a fluffy tulle mermaid hem.
It has lots of little details including thigh embellishments and back lacing.
When Aubrey put it on, however, the dress looked rough and unfinished. The tulle only ran along the bottom, and messy white fabric took up most of the dress.
The lace-up back looked unfinished, the strings hung down the back, and the front was dull.
The real dress: Milly Bridal quickly responded to tell her she was wearing it inside out
“You put the dress inside out. Please put it on the right way, ”the store replied.
Over the weekend, Aubrey received an email from the company, Milly Bridal, explaining that she was not wearing it properly and signed with a polite “best regards”.
“Who knew they shipped wedding dresses inside out?” Aubrey wrote, adding that the dress “looked really gorgeous”.
“Sometimes no matter how many schools we put behind us… we’re always going to lack common sense like how to put on clothes properly,” she joked.
Aubrey added that the bride’s story “probably didn’t like” her angry email, so she wanted to make up for it.
“This post is the least I can do to thank them for ‘fixing’ the problem (me, the problem was me).” She wrote. “But I hope they enjoyed a good laugh. . “
Aubrey later changed the post to say she had worked long hours as a healthcare worker and was functioning with little sleep – and in her defense, her husband also didn’t realize that was Upside down.
“Sometimes no matter how many schools we put behind us… we’re always going to lack common sense, like how to put on clothes properly,” Aubrey joked.
“Hoping other brides can read this and not panic or get upset when their dress arrives in the mail,” she continued. You can cry over disasters and imperfect times that strike us when we least expect them, or you can laugh forever.
And, she added, “Ask your bridesmaids not to lace up your husband, and hire the wedding planners, ESPECIALLY if it’s not your industry or your jam to begin with.”
Now Aubrey is just waiting for the pandemic to end so that she and her husband – they’ve already made it legal – can have a good marriage with their loved ones.
Commentators were tickled by the funny story, thanking Aubrey for the laugh.
“It’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a month! One wrote. “It sounds like something I would do. I love you even more now. Ha!!’
‘Thanks for that! I needed to laugh! I simply love you ! You were beautiful, even upside down! ‘ writes another.
‘Ohmygosh, laugh with you! So funny. It will become a memory that we can laugh about forever, ”commented a third.
