Unleashing the Bridal Beast

It's official. I've blown my first bridal-gasket. I erupted with earth-shattering, high-pitched screams and wails. Veins, pumped full of blood, stood out at my temples. My fists curled into tightly-clenched weapons of pure rage. Sak cowered in the background, creating a low undercurrent of pleas to calm the catastrophic living-room storm.

Can you guess what happened?

Italian soda. RED Italian soda. Bright red, read it -RED artificial coloring.


Hell hath no fury like a woman with a stained wedding gown. I barked orders at Sak as he ran around the house like a chicken with his head cut off, yet somehow we got to the sink and the Woolite in time.

The better part of Sak's evening, spent scrubbing his soda out of my dress. Luckily, I think it came out, though you can still see faint pink stains on the underside of the gown. After it dries I'll be able to see if there's any lasting damage. I certainly hope not, because blowing one fuse was bad enough.

Chalk this up to another risk for DIY dress-making - fiance hazards. I think someone's getting a sippy cup soon.

Did your dress endure any battle stains, either pre or post wedding?


  1. lol at the sippy cup :-P

    maybe that's the "blood" in the blood sweat and tears part. :oT Sorrrrry to hear you had a wedding dress boo boo! I hope it dries okay!!!

  2. Sippy cup? I think he might be demoted to no food/drink in the house till after the wedding! You all have a porch... right?

  3. Gah! Oh my goodness, what an appropriate reason for a freakout! Glad it's coming out...maybe institute a no food/drink near the dress policy? Eeep!

  4. thanks guys >.>" I feel bad about it now, I seriously scared poor Sak. He said he'd never heard my voice get so "shrill" before. Not a good moment. and yeah, gator & ash, I think we'll be implementing a food/drink-20-feet-away-from-white-fabric policy.

  5. Soooo scary! Hope it gets resolved :o)

  6. Oh my gosh! I still can't believe this happened to you. I think a bride's worst dress-nightmare has got to be big RED stains on her white gown! I'm glad you guys were able to get the stains out. Poor Sak. Get that man a sippy cup with a slow flow spout!
