Bride Spends Thousands On Dream Wedding Despite Not Having Groom To Marry
A single bride has already splashed out thousands of pounds on her fairytale wedding, despite not having a groom to marry yet.
Theresa Mahon sat on the This Morning couch in her beautiful white wedding gown, complete with a tiara and veil, where she told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield she had everything arranged for her dream wedding.
With Cinderella as her inspiration, Theresa forked out £1,000 on the beautiful dress, and a few more thousands on the ceremony, including a castle for her venue and slippers from America.
"I still watch the films of Cinderella, I like how she's gone from a hard life to this beautiful bride, she has the man she loves. It's a dream," she told the hosts.
"Down to the shoes, I have ordered shoes from America they are glass slippers and completely see through. I wanted a castle like Cinderella. Disneyland didn't do weddings back then, but now they do."
Theresa was originally set to marry a former lover, but when the relationship came to an end, she decided to continue planning her fairytale inspired ceremony, which she has dreamed of since being 10-years-old.
"I thought he was going to be my prince charming, but that didn't work out. I just said I wasn't going to let that stop me, just meant when prince charming comes along there's less planning to do," she explained.
Despite having the dream day all planned, Theresa says she's more than willing to compromise if necessary when she finds her dream man.
But, the elements she's not willing to compromise on are her dress, the first dance song and the tribute to her late daughter.
She said: "I 100 per cent would compromise. The only thing I wouldn't compromise on is the first dance song. Because the song is A Thousand Years by Christina Perri because they mean so much to me. Everything else I'll be willing to compromise.
"The only other thing I would change is I want pink in the dress after my daughter who passed away, but that would be it."
When asked how people had reacted to her unorthodox wedding planning, she said: "I just say 'I have no groom, but when I find him I have the plans' there are a few ladies out there who agreed."
