Bride's wedding becomes nightmare, Wisconsin boutique saves day

One bride-to-be's dream wedding turned into a nightmare, but thanks to help from a Wisconsin bridal shop her wedding is back on. 


Tennessee native Andriana De'Armanni made the ten hour drive from Nashville to Sandra D's Bridal Boutique in Watertown for her dream wedding dress.


De'armanni originally bought a dress from the company Alfred Angelo. The designer had a line of Disney inspired dresses. De'Armanni said she found the dress that perfectly matched her enchanted Disney wedding theme. She tried it on at an Alfred Angelo store and bought it.


"On my way to pick it up, I found out the store was closed," De'armanni said. 


Alfred Angelo abruptly went out of business in July. De'Armanni is one of countless brides across the country that didn't get her dress. Since she didn't have money to buy a new dress she loved, she was forced to move her wedding date. 

De'Armanni posted her loss on Facebook before Sandra D's Boutique found her.

"It made me really discouraged thinking it was a bad omen," De'Armanni said. 


The Nashville bride took to social media to express her concern. That's when Owner of Sandra D's Bridal Boutique Sandra Budewitz found her and offered De'Armanni the exact Alfred Angelo dress she lost. De'Armanni tried on the dress for a second time in Wisconsin Saturday when fell in love, again. This time, she got to take the dress home. 


"A wedding is a new chapter in your life, and making that huge step and having that dress with you, you think about these things since you're a little girl," De'Armanni said.
