As much as being able to say “yes to the dream dress” looms large in many a bride’s twinkling eye, budget woes have forced compromise for more than their fair share of wedding dreams.
This scenario is the same for Ireanna Bradshaw (a bride-to-be), who between saving for the wedding and getting to a new home with her intended, had a budget that was stretched to the wire.
Bradshaw saw her dream dress at David’s Bridal, but revealed that even though she’d been saving, at $1,300 it was impossible for her to acquire because it was beyond her means. She tweeted a photo of the dress and some words of distress to her Twitter feed:
I’m getting Married in March &trying to move into our own place… Excited but overwhelmed. I have been saving money; but its still a struggle. I found my dream dress and I want to get it so bad but between saving for the move – I dnt think it will be possible.Bradshaw
She posted her cash app information as well, hoping that someone will come to her rescue, without expecting that a famous fairy godmother might just be close by waiting to grant her wish.
When music legend Missy Elliott got wind of Bradshaw’s yearning for the perfect gown, she decided to make some wedding magic of her own. The star stepped in and paid for the dress in full, tweeting:
Your dress is paid for now. I don’t know you but I saw you said the dress of your dreams & figured I would help when I saw you post ya cash app. May Blessings pour on your Beautiful Wedding Day with your Future Husband.Missy Elliott
