Ireanna Bradshaw and Roderick Purdie are currently planning their March wedding, as well as preparing to move into their own place.
As anyone who has gone through a move or planned a wedding knows, those costs can pile up. Recently, Bradshaw found the wedding dress of her dreams at David’s Bridal. Unfortunately, the dress came with a $1,300 price tag and the cost got in the way of her and the perfect dress. She posted her heartbreak on Twitter with her CashApp username, hoping people could help contribute.
I never thought Id find a love like this and never thought someone would want to marry me. With all my previous insecurities- i didnt think i was worthy of love. Loving myself made me ready for love. I would be so grateful to have some support: anything would help: pic.twitter.com/Kiqt3jYQzM— I R E A N N A (@mynamesireanna) November 17, 2020

Catchy🙂 turn your adlibs down in the back in the future because you don’t want your adlibs to over power your lead vocal... but nice lil vibe🙂— Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) November 15, 2020
