Just read your post. So glad you got out of it. If it makes you feel any better my freshman year of college I totally got locked out of my dorm room in just a towel after taking a shower. You are super lucky you did not need to go to a stranger for help!

oh ive done that with a scuba drysuit (not a wedding dress i know) in the middle of summer while home alone!  i found religion real quick praying to get out of it PLUS i gave myself carpet burns while trying to skid across the floor to get it off my shoulders – thank god for door handles and coat hangers is all i can say!

never ever try something that has a zip on the back while home alone young lady!

glad to hear you got out of it ok… especially without carpet burns that you then had to later explain to the FI πŸ™‚

Although I’m sure it was traumatizing….it’s a totally entertaining story. So glad you didn’t have to ask the neighbors or firemen to help you get naked!!!! lol

Wow. SoontoBee! I think that this was definitely a learning experience! πŸ™‚ This is exactly why my dress ‘lives’ at my parents’ house (yes, I have visiting rights though but my mom says I cannot try it on EVERY weekend lol). Ok, so… now that you are out of your dress and you both are safe. Perhaps, you may want to think about getting to know your neighbors (even just first names). This sounds weird, but even knowing them a little bit will help you if something like this (or God forbid, worse) happens again. I know our neighbors, their kids (and their dogs). For us, it’s a friendly thing but it’s also a safety thing. Don’t get me wrong – I am not the welcome wagon or anything, but when we had a major wind storm here after one of the hurricaines last year, our neighborhood banded together and made the best of it with what we had. I’m so glad to know you and the dress are ok – now, next time you see a neighbor or they see you, stick out your hand and say ‘hi, my name is X.’ You’ll be happy you did. Now, don’t misunderstand. I would certainly be embarressed if I had to go to my neighbor and say ‘hey, I’m stuck in my wedding gown and can’t get out,’ but most of them are mothers, or at least wives and would get a little giggle out of it but would certainly help me out and not say anything to anybody. Lesson learned. πŸ™‚

That’s hilarious!  I never was tempted to try on my dress because I didn’t pick it up until 3 days before the wedding.

At least you were eventually able to get out of it! πŸ™‚

Am sorry about the dress!  Sometimes those zippers sink lower than where we left them when we zipped them up!

I wish you luck, and next time when you want to dress up.. you may want a friend to dress up too!

Good luck, and may you have a blessed event!

Being home alone with a dress is never a good thing!  I couldn’t get the zipper down on mine when I was trying it on so I had to yank it and the zipper broke!  Thankfully, it was an easy fix once the seamstress got to it and it didn’t have to be replaced but I was terrified of even touching it again until the fitting!  Glad you got out of yours ok!
