Bride gets $1,500 for broken gown zipper

Posted: Updated:

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island bride has been compensated for her wedding day nightmare - the zipper on her gown broke just minutes before she was to walk down the aisle.

A judge on Monday ordered the seamstress who affixed the zipper to the dress to pay Samantha Shea of Oceanside $1,500.

Shea's bridesmaids were arranging the bustle of her beaded wedding gown in June when the teeth off the dress' zipper began tearing apart, from below the waistline to the neck.

Shea told Newsda she was two hours late for her own wedding while repairs were made.

Seamstress Dalia Cohen, of Bridal World in Baldwin, declined to comment after court. But the judge's decision said she was remorseful in her testimony, saying she "was devastated" at what happened.
