Would you sell your wedding dress on ebay?
It’s not unusual for a bride-to-be to opt for a second hand wedding dress.
Whether it’s been passed down through generations, or they’ve bagged a vintage designer bargain online.
But if you were to see Samantha Wrag’s stunning art deco dress on ebay, you might think twice about purchasing. As, while it might boast a beautiful design and be in ‘great condition’, it also reeks of ‘the stench of betrayal’.
Blogger Samantha decided to sell her size 6, £2,000 wedding dress online after finding out that her husband had been cheating with another woman. (‘the skank’) in her ad), with a starting bid of £500.
And while cynics might see this as a bizarre move on Sam’s part, she’s getting the last laugh, with the highest bid currently coming in at over £13K!
Samantha had it all on her big day back in 2014; a crowd friends and family present to toast the happy couple, the perfect first dance, and, of course, the dream designer dress. Sadly, Samantha’s happy ending didn’t last very long, as after just 18 months her new husband left her to move in with another woman.
In her advert, the 28-year-old joked: “Mainly selling as I need to pay for my divorce which my ex-husband has left me to fit the bill for!
“As it reaches the floor, it is a little dirty around this area and will need a dry clean before it’s worn for your special day.
“I didn’t have time to get it dry-cleaned myself before my cheating scumbag of a husband decided to call an end to our marriage.
“It costs my poor parents around £2,000 brand new in 2014!
“Sorry that there are only two pictures. But when I found out my husband was living with another woman I pretty much burned/permanently deleted everything with his disgusting face on it!
“If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you!
“Hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end, and if not… well you can always sell it on here!
“If you’ve got any questions – either about the dress or the skank that my husband ran off with – then please feel free to contact me!”
Oh, we’re sure there have been plenty of questions for Sam.
Despite this rather severe reaction to her husband’s infidelity, Samantha insists she’s not bitter.
Posting on the Coco Butter Blog yesterday, she said: “I had my wedding dress on eBay for two weeks with barely any views so I decided with a little help from my brother (ok it was all his idea!) to make it funny.
“In the back of my mind I was hoping it would go viral – but I never expected this!
“A lot of people have got the wrong end of the stick and think it’s really bitter but anyone who knows me knows I’ve got a great sense of humour. It’s very tongue in cheek.
“Yes, he made a terrible and really hurtful mistake but he’s got to live with that (and without me!) for the rest of his life.
“I forgive him and I’m very happy now so I hope he is too.”
She’s a bigger woman than we could be!
