I paid £3k for a custom wedding dress and hated it – I cried so hard my lashes fell off when I saw it

IMAGINE spending months looking forward to trying on your custom-made wedding gown, only for it to be an overwhelming disappointment.

Sadly that nightmare became a reality for one woman who recently dished all the details on her dress disaster.

TikTok user @naadiathomasrealty said was understandably excited to step out in her dress, but it soon became a “£3000 wedding mistake.”

In a video for the social media site, @naadiathomasrealty explained: “I went to go and pick up my wedding dress.

“I saw a sneak peek preview of how the dress was going to look and I didn’t like it, but in my head, after talking to people, I felt like I could make alterations to it.

“[I thought], ‘it’ll be fine, it’ll be great, it’ll be grand.’ It was not. I just paid the remainder of a $700 balance for a dress that I will never wear… never.”

The social media user went on to say that she tried to convince herself it wasn’t a total waste of money as she could wear the outfit to a hen party – but quickly changed her mind when she realised how much she “hated” it. 

She continued: “I hate it, I truly do. I hate it. The moral of this story is – don’t think you can design some s**t in your head, it won’t work.

“Today is the day I went to pick up my wedding dress and it’s not actually my wedding dress – just a piece of fabric.” 

Further opening up on the moment she saw the outfit for the first time, @naadiathomasrealty said in a follow-up video that it had made her cry her “lashes off.” 

She then gave her intrigued followers a glimpse of the design – a strapless, fitted, embroidered number. 

Her followers were quick to say that she had made the right decision when she decided to ditch the dress to walk down the aisle. 

One wrote: “I didn’t think it would be that bad.” A second said: “Uhm…yeah… I understand now.”

While a third commented: “Yea, it’s a no. Give it back.”

@naadiathomasrealty has since gone wedding dress shopping again, as she counts down the days until her nuptials this year. 

In a short TikTok video posted recently, the real estate agent said: “I’m officially about to say yes to the dress… again.

“But this time I’m so confident. I’m so happy, like, this was a 360 experience from my first time around shopping.

“It was the bomb.com and they even gave me a gift for saying yes to the dress.”
