I agree- Wash it. You can even skip out on detergent. Is it stained? Or just wet? You can also gently soak it in the bathtub. and hang to dry. Don’t worry, all is not lost!

You can also take it to the dry cleaners for them to wash for you if you aren’t confident to wash at home.

You should try to make a claim with UPS as soon as possible. Maybe that will help you to get some kind of compensation.

daaaaang that effing stinks, I’m sorry hon. Definitely try the washing idea, and let us know how it works out! And wine is very acceptable in this situation, just nowhere near the dress! ๐Ÿ˜€

Nah, pick the bottle of wine back up. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You’ll be okay. But you’ll be more okay with a glass of wine. You can sip it while the dress is in the wash.
