One woman decided to get her COVID-19 vaccine while wearing her wedding dress after having to cancel the reception because of the pandemic.

“Here comes the bride … to get the bulk vaccination at the M&T Bank Stadium!” The University of Maryland Medical System announced in a Twitter post on Monday April 12th that photos of bride Sarah Studley were receiving her vaccine.

Studley’s wedding reception had been canceled twice due to the ongoing pandemic, leaving her white wedding dress untouched. But instead of wasting the satin dress and polka dot sleeves, she found her vaccination reason enough to cheer up and celebrate.

Here comes the bride … to get vaccinated at the M&T Bank Stadium mass vaccination center! Instead of just leaving the beautiful dress hanging in her closet for her wedding reception, which was canceled by the pandemic, Sarah Studley wore it to get vaccinated.

“Wore what was supposed to be my wedding reception gown – decided to make it my vaccine reception gown,” Studley said in a tweet on April 12, right after getting her shot.

Studley and her husband Brian Horlor got married in a small ceremony amid the pandemic and planned a reception. It was supposed to take place last November but was postponed until June of this year, Baltimore Sun reported on April 12th.

Studley noted, however, that the pace of vaccine introductions did not look promising and again canceled the event for safety reasons.

For her, wearing her dress to her vaccination appointment was a “silver lining” for the staff when she noticed that everyone seemed happy to see her. Studley’s nurse even admitted that patients like the bride were one of her favorite parts of her job. JB
