Shelby Swink, 23, from Tennessee got one of the worst news a bride to be can get: her fiance left her 5 days before the wedding!
After spending the first few days in shock and cancelling services and calling guests, when her November 1st Wedding date came she didn’t want to sit moping around.
When her wedding photographer mentioned doing a “trash the dress” photo shoot with her friends and family, Swink was all in.
“I let go of everything I was feeling before. I felt free of sadness, free of disappointment, free of anger. I let all of that go and let happiness take over,” she said. “Nov.1 was supposed to be a day full of happiness surrounded by loved ones, and that’s exactly what it was!”
The dress is at a local bridal shop where they’re displaying it until January and a portion of the shops sales will be donated to a nonprofit called befreerevolution.org
