After my husband proposed to me, the very first thing I began to look for was my dress. Apparently that’s pretty common. According to an article on njwedding.com, 70% of brides say selecting the wedding gown of their dreams is the most important element of the wedding. So can you imagine going to bed on a Saturday night -- the night before your big day -- knowing your wedding gown is locked inside a dry cleaner that won’t reopen until Monday? That recently happened to an A Cleaner World Boone, North Carolina customer.
The bride dropped off her gown several days before the wedding to have it freshened up. When she went back to pick up her dress after 5:00 on Saturday, the day before her wedding, the store was already closed. She thought the store was open until 6:00 on Saturdays. I am sure that panic immediately set in.
The bride-to-be and her mom began making phone calls. To make a long story short, Mike Feudale, the store’s District Manager, was out with friends that night and learned about the situation after 11:00 p.m. He immediately called the bride’s mom. They came up with a plan, and Mike got up early Sunday morning and drove from his home in Winston-Salem to the A Cleaner World in Boone. He was able to help get the dress to the right place in plenty of time. So the wedding went off without a hitch. The bride was thrilled because she got to get married in the gown of her dreams. And then they lived happily ever after.
