The search for the perfect wedding dress can be a difficult one, but when you know, you know. Ireanna (also known as @mynamesireanna) found the gown of her dreams at David's Bridal, but unfortunately, the expenses of saving for a new place put the outfit out of reach. Little did she know, Missy Elliott would be the one to buy the special dress.
On Nov. 18, Ireanna tweeted about the dress she desired for her upcoming wedding. "Im getting Married in March &trying to move into our own place," she wrote. "Excited but overwhelmed. I have been saving money; but its still a struggle. I found my dream dress and I want to get it so bad but between saving for the move- i dnt think it will be possible."
"When I saw that she paid for it; I was shaking and crying."
Ireanna fell in love with an A-line dress from David's Bridal featuring floral detailing and removable, off-the-shoulder sleeves for a romantic appearance. She asked followers to consider donating to her Cash App to help make her dream a reality. Fellow Twitter users came through with support and well-wishes, with Missy leading the pack. "Early Congratulations. May God Bless you both with an Unbreakable Union and full of Love & Happiness," Missy wrote.
Oh, but she didn't stop there. Ireanna responded excitedly and even invited Missy to her wedding — as anyone would do — before getting the ultimate surprise: her dress, fully purchased by Missy herself. "Your Dress is paid for now. I don't know you but I saw you said the dress of your dreams & figured I would help when I saw you post ya cash app. May Blessings pour on your Beautiful Wedding Day with your Future husband."
Aw! "When I saw that she paid for it; I was shaking and crying," Ireanna told POPSUGAR. "I almost started screaming but was out with my mom picking up dinner. My mom hugged me and was so happy for me. This is a dream come true." See their full interaction, and Ireanna's dress, ahead.
