Woman Refused Wedding Dress Refund After Fiancé Dies Suddenly

Tags: Scoopla, Life, Wedding, Wedding Dress, Refund, Bride

You’ll be shocked when you hear what this woman, who was grieving her dead fiancé, was told by her wedding dress designers when she asked for a refund!  

44-year-old Fiona Mullins from the UK found her dream dress in November last year, planning to wear it this year at her wedding to factory worker Kevin Elliott, 34.

But tragically, her fiancé dropped dead in December and his cause of death still remains unknown.

Mullins asked for a refund of the 50% deposit of £1, 200 (AUD $2375) and was mortified by what she was told by staff.

“They told her they could cancel the dress but the money would be held as a cancellation fee or they could carry on making it in case of a change of circumstances,” her daughter Rhiannon said.

“We have never heard of anything so callous in our whole lives. What was her fiancé going to do - come back from the dead?”

“Money is not everything in life but when you also only work in a supermarket, trying to provide for your children, as now, a single parent £1,200 was a lot of money to lose.”


Rhiannon then organised an online petition as a way of getting back her mum’s deposit, and it gained over 6,ooo signatures in just one day.

After finding out about the petition, the dress designer decided to offer Mullins a full refund.

“I’m so pleased they agreed to pay the money but the whole family are still upset this was deal with so badly,” a triumphant Rhiannon said.

“This situation could have been handled so much better but we are thankful they have seen sense and decided to honour my mum’s request.”
