Because there’s no coming back from a mistake that sees your future bride’s wedding gown being buried with her grandmother, who was wearing the fancy dress when she was put six feet under.

Yeah, you read that right — granny was buried in a $2,300 wedding gown meant to be worn on her grandchild’s big day.

The story, which has gone viral, was related on TikTok by the owner of Kasia’s Bridal & Special Occasion Boutique in Chicago, Ill.. The original video where Kasia tells the story has been viewed more than 4.7 million times.

The cringe-worthy story started when Kasia received a phone call from a groom wanting to re-order his bride’s wedding gown, even though she had already picked up the dress. The confused store owner offered to do alterations before the couple’s wedding in November but that wasn’t going to cut it, she was told.

“He said, ‘No, alterations are not an option. There’s nothing to alter. I need to know if you can reorder this dress,’” Kasia said.

Kasia called the dress manufacturer and was told that, due to customizations to the gown, it would take “a while” to remake. When she called the groom back and relayed that info, he broke down in tears and handed the phone to the bride’s brother.

The bride’s sibling told Kasia “You see, the bride gave the dress to our mother to go ahead and store in safe keeping. And my mom did just that. She put it in her closet, and no one goes in there. Just my mom.”

The bride’s grandmother died two weeks ago and, after her husband was buried wearing a tuxedo, she wanted to be buried in her wedding gown. But the men sent to retrieve the gown, they grabbed the wrong one — the dress intended for the bride.

“Being guys, they didn’t know better,” Kasia related. “They didn’t know there were multiple wedding dresses in the closet. So the guys took this dress and they dropped it off at the funeral home.

“Apparently, it was a closed casket. So no one knew that this wedding dress is on grandma. The bride’s wedding dress is on grandma.”

And, now, after two weeks underground, retrieving the dress wasn’t an option.

So all parties involved were left to scramble and get the soon-to-be bride her new — and unsoiled — wedding gown.
