Bride Trashes Wedding Dress After Fiancé Called Off Wedding Via Text


There's only one thing worse than your fiancé saying he doesn't want to marry you – and that's being told by text message.

Seven days before her wedding, Kilee Manulak's ex-fiancé sent her a text message saying he no longer wanted to marry her. Kilee, though heart-broken, didn't sit around feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she joined the 5K colour run in Tampa, Florida - trashing her gown in the process.

Kilee did the run, where participants are splattered with brightly coloured paint, along with her mother, stepfather, bridesmaids and even the woman who custom-made her wedding dress.

Kilee told HuffPost: "Luckily I have a really good support system and a really good family."

She now plans to have the colourful dress cleaned (that's going to take a LOT of Vanish Gold) and will donate it to charity.

"I thought it was going to be sad putting on the dress but I was not sad at all," she said. "It was liberating."
