A funny story from Shindana

William and I hosted a welcome to the island, dinner for our friends and family who joined for the wedding. Two hours before the event, I asked the hotel to steam my white linen dress. Unfortunately I wasn’t in the room because I was having hair, make-up, and a rehearsal. When William and I walked in, the dress was hanging up in plain sight for him to see… it was my wedding dress. They must have not understood what I was saying when I gave them direction and steamed the wrong dress. Thank God I had purchased two wedding dresses. So I wore the other one.
