Lyndsey Harrison separated from husband in 2016 but just got around to selling her £1,200 gown at the start of the year. 

Sharing a picture of the dress on Facebook, she wrote: ‘Selling my wedding dress due to it falling into the same category as the husband: unwanted.

Size 12 originally bought in 2014 for £1200. May fit slightly bigger as I seem to remember a fair few months of ‘what the f*ck am I doing’ Stella binges so needed widening…

‘Please don’t ask me any questions about it cos I know nowt about dresses. It’s white and heavy but aren’t we all. £150ono. Message me if you’re interested.

Despite not receiving many enquiries about buying the dress, the 32-year-old’s post was flooded with appreciative comments on her attitude!

Speaking to Metro, she declared that there was nothing ‘remotely exciting’ about their relationship and that they met through a love of modified cars. 

‘Our relationship was quite hostile,’ she admitted, ‘even when we had the house warming for our first home together we ended up in a bit of a battle of words.’

She went on to say that she never expected him to propose and said ‘no’ initially as she assumed he was joking. 

However, when he asked again, she thought ‘why not’ and part of her wanted to annoy his family who she claimed never liked her to begin with!

I really felt like I had to go ahead with it for everyone else,’ she added. 

The dress was the first one she tried on and Lyndsey described walking down the aisle as ‘terrifying’.

Once the wedding was over, the couple kept clashing and she eventually asked for a divorce. Here’s hoping she gets a few quid for the dress!
