Finding your dream wedding dress isn’t an easy task which is why brides get so emotionally attached once they have found it.

However, one bride-to-be had the ultimate wedding dress disaster when travelling from Boston to her native Jamaica on American Airlines.

The Daily Mail reports that Yewande Oteh says that she was told she could hang her dress in a cupboard during the flight but once boarded, an air hostess informed her that she would not have access to the space.

As a result, the wedding dress was placed in an overhead bin but when it was taken down after the flight, it had been soaked through with red wine!

Oteh declared that she saw Masters retrieve the dress with her right hand while holding something else in her left hand.

The heartbroken bride is now suing the airline for €2.9 million (£2.6 million) for a ‘lifetime of damage’, claiming she has suffered emotional and physical pain including diarrhea, dehydration and depressive symptoms since the incident.

Her claims include Negligence, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress and Negligent Hiriing and Negligent Retention.
