A devastated bride-to-be rummaged through the trash after the wedding dress was posted to the wrong house


A distraught bride-to-be says she’s been rummaging through wheelie bins since her dream wedding dress went missing after being delivered to the wrong address.

Sheep farmer Katie Sugg said her vintage 1940s dress was delivered and signed for to an address two miles from her home in Brownsfield, Lichfield yesterday morning.

She said an online tracking system showed it had been signed for and delivered to her home, but the 27-year-old said Royal Mail officials told her the actual location was around three kilometers.

Katie says she’s knocked on all her neighbors’ doors and even rummaged through wheelie bins, but so far hasn’t been able to find the dress, BirminghamLive reports.

She added that she hopes someone will bring him back and that he is not stuck somewhere in a hedge.

“I don’t think I’ll ever find one like it,” she said

“It’s a size too small and I’ve already contacted a seamstress.

“I know I won’t have another like it, I’ve looked everywhere and they don’t make them like that anymore.

“That’s all for me.

“I even looked on Facebook Marketplace to see if it had gone on sale.”

Royal Mail was asked to comment.
