My sweet Fiance loves to clean (great, I know!) but sometimes he can go a bit over board. Last night was one of those nights. It all started with a missing pair of basketball shorts. The shorts have been missing for a week and it was driving him crazy, so last night while I was sleeping, Fiance stripped our little house top to bottom. He scrubbed the floors, dusted the light fixtures, cleaned the oven, did a ton of laundry and threw out lots and lots of junk that had accumulated. AWESOME!
When I woke up, I wandered into our office and just so happened to notice that my “pile of wedding crap” was a wee bit shorter than it looked the day before. A bit alarming, if you will. But I shrugged it off, showered, and went to work. Well, once at work, it dawned on me that something very, very important was missing from my “pile of wedding crap”. The bag that my cathedral length veil was in. I called Fiance. He said “oh my god, that’s what that fluffy white shit was!” My heart sunk to filthy depths.
I came home from work, put on old sweats and a Tshirt, with big yellow cleaning gloves and I jumped into the massive dumpster. (with Fiance by my side of course). We dug through boxes and bags of cat poo, beer cans, used TAMPONS, rotting food, and more… It is hot as hell, there are flies everywhere. I even threw up from the smell. Still no veil. We are taking a break, re hydrating ourselves, and trying one last time.
The chances that it is untouched are slim to none. But I need to SEE it for myself….if that makes sense. But if it IS untouched, by some miracle, do I really want to wear somnething from a DUMPSTER on my wedding day?
If I order a new one, it won’t come in time for my fitting. It would be here for the wedding…but still. I’m so sad. And I smell like shit.

I’m so sorry! I really would not want it after it being in the dumpster. From now on, he should not throw things away if he doesn’t know what they are!
I didn’t have my veil for the fitting, don’t worry about it not being here for that.

OMG! So sorry to hear that!! You are making a valient effort though– at least you can still get one in time for the wedding! Good luck!

That’s terrible! I’m sorry you have this disappointment to deal with right now.
Here’s my e-shoulder to e-cry on.

Oh yuck! Hopefully you’ll find your veil. Just keep thinking that one day you and your husband will look back on this and laugh!

That SUCKS…big time.
I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine. Your Fiance must feel awful. 🙁
If you do find it, there MUST be a way to get the veil professionally cleaned (if you decide to use it). Someone in the hive must know.
I’m wishing you good luck on the finding factor, or if that doesn’t work, I’m wishing for a BIG glass of wine for you and that you can rush order a new veil.

My thoughts are with you while you are in a dumpster – I really hope you find it!

Ack!!! Oh no!!!!! You should put some yellow “caution” tape around your wedding corner and Fiance is not allowed to enter that zone! Oh sweetie, I’m so sorry to hear about this mess you’re in! I hope you find it, and I’m sure the dry cleaner or someone can clean it/de-scent it for you. Keep us posted! ((hugs!!))
PS- Try the old trick of putting some Vicks Vaporub under your nose, it’s supposed to help a lot!

I have a plain, cut-edge cathedral veil that I made for my first dress that I would be happy to finish and send to you! I need to clean up the edge a bit and sew the comb on, but other than that, it’s finished. It’s a drop veil, but could easily be gathered to a regular one. It’s only $8 worth of fabric, so I wouldn’t be sorry to see it go for free.
Here’s a pic of it with my old dress. It’s diamond white.
