A three-pronged fashion fail one hour before the ceremony might sound the plot of a pre-wedding nightmare. But alas, it was reality for Amber Greasley.
The former Miss World was all set to get hitched to Sydney Swans player Jeremy Laidler in Melbourne on Friday when the zippers on three out of her five bridesmaids’ dresses broke.
The $680 Aussie-designer frocks rendered unwearable, her bridal party – which included Young Mummy blogger Sophie Cachia and Charlotte Goodlet, fiancée of former Swans captain Kieren Jack – made a mad dash to Chapel Street to find last-minute alternatives.
“I was downstairs totally ready when Charlotte explained and then jumped in the car with my hairdresser and they dashed to Kookai in their heels and pyjamas to find replacements,” Greasley told Confidential.
“At the end of it all, the new dresses actually ended up looking better, I think, than the original ones.”
