A BRIDE has stopped her entire wedding ceremony after realizing she forgot half of her dress following a bizarre dream she had a few days earlier.
Becky Jefferies had already walked down the aisle for her long-awaited ceremony in Greece when she realized the incident.
Jefferies’ wedding dress was a two-piece with a removable skirt that had to be removed for the reception but was never put on the dress to begin with.
“As soon as I found myself after walking down the aisle – greeting my husband and calming down – I suddenly realized that I never put the overskirt on,” she said.
“And then it hit me like a ton of bricks.”
The already hectic wedding day became too much for Jefferies, who said she felt she was going to crumble at the altar.
She and her fiancé, Sherif Fayed, had already legally married at the end of 2019 and had planned a wedding for June 2020.
However, their plans have been repeatedly postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jefferies tried to alert her friend that her skirt was missing, however, they weren’t very good lip readers, so she decided to put the ceremony on hold altogether.
“Not getting the rest of the dress was never an option,” she said.
She waited for a break in the ceremony to grab the celebrant’s microphone.
“Our dear friend Amer, the celebrant, had put so much effort and practice into the discourse that there was not a moment’s pause until it was time for our vows,” said she declared.
Jefferies said she didn’t remember anything Amer said, but she knew she had to say something.
“Uh, pause for a moment. I just realized when I got to the end of the aisle that I’m missing half of my dress…maybe I could put it on now?” she told her guests .
The next two minutes were spent with Jefferies cracking jokes as her wedding planner grabbed the skirt.
The fun moment was shared on Jefferies’ TikTok account.
The rest of the wedding went off without a hitch, but the ironic part is that Jefferies admitted to the crowd that she had dreamed about this exact situation.
“Once we resumed the ceremony, everything was in working order and I was finally able to relax,” she said.
Jefferies added that her husband laughed and shook his head before they were pronounced husband and wife – along with the rest of her dress.
“Everyone said afterwards that it was the most memorable wedding they had attended, which was a relief,” Jefferies said.
“They all told us it was such an icebreaker in what is usually a very nerve-wracking time with a lot of strong emotions at play.”
