Five days before her wedding, Shelby Swink’s fiancé announced that he was calling their marriage off. Can you imagine the heartbreak? First of all, you’re losing the person you think you’re going to spend your life with. To add insult to injury, you then have five days to let all of your family and friends know that they should cancel their travel plans because the wedding’s off. Then there’s the embarrassment of canceling all of the arrangements with florists, photographers, caterers, and the venue. It sounds like a nightmare. But instead of building herself a nest on the couch and only wearing sweats and watching Netflix until the end of time (which would be totally understandable), Shelby did something a little different. And much sassier. She got her parents and her would-be bridesmaids together to trash her dress in a fun, inspiring, and colorful shoot.
The dress went on display at a bridal shop in her hometown, where a portion of sales while it’s there will go to a charity.
