Every Bride-to-be worries that things will go wrong in the lead up to her wedding day and minor events can turn into stressful and nerve racking times but for Melissa Conley she suffered three terrible days all in a row of things going wrong that could have potentially ruined her big day.
The first bad day was on November the fifteenth when the restaurant Harry Carays’ Tavern in Chicago they had chosen and booked to hold their rehearsal dinner just closed its doors with no warning.
The day after Melissa was told that her eight bridesmaids’ dresses had gone missing from the store and to make matter worse her two wedding dresses (one to get married in and the other to change into her reception) had been in the Eva’s Bridals of Oak Lawn shop when a fire broke out, and both dresses had been completely destroyed.
Feeling as if her dream day was not going to take place the philosophical Bride-to-be quickly rallied herself and took it upon herself to track down her bridesmaids’ dresses as well as shopping for two more wedding dresses.
Thankfully Mellissa was then told by the new restaurant owners of Benchwarmers that they would honor her booking to hold her rehearsal dinner.
