  • There’s nothing as unpredictable as wedding day.
  • Just when a bride thinks that everything’s going according to plan, the unthinkable always happens.
  • A Quora user shares how she saved her friend’s daughter’s wedding dress disaster just in time for the nuptials.

Quora user Lee Souleles shared how she managed to save the day. The wedding was held a short distance from her house in a coastal community in California.  

While the bride and her bridesmaids were getting ready in another room, the photographer took pictures of the dress in the bride's room. To get the perfect angle, the photographer attached the light cord to the fire sprinkler above the bed.

That didn't work out well as the dirty water from the fire sprinkler sprayed all over the white wedding gown.

The bride didn't know all of this was happening, so Lee decided to get a duplicate of the dress from a nearby bridal store.

Although it wasn't 100% exactly like the first dress, it was close enough. The bride was informed about what happened, but thanks to Lee, her day was not ruined after all.
