Wedding dress for sale: worn once by mistake

We love it when our members make the best of a bad situation and this week one woman from Masterton did just that. 

After being worn once "by mistake", the woman put her wedding dress up for auction claiming the gown was "in excellent condition - unlike my marriage."


She described the dress as so beautiful "it will distract you and your guests from the fact you are marrying a compulsive liar." The seller also jokes that she has lost 90kgs of 'baggage' (her husband) since the photos. 


People from around the world loved the listing and sent messages of support to the seller. It had over 106,000 views and a lot of media attention before the dress sold for $400.
