Toxic Flowers Ruined Her Dream Wedding - But Her "I Do Re-Do" Was Magical

Christine Jo Miller - Todd Anderson - Disney

Sometimes a story is just so terrible, all you can do is laugh.

Christine Miller's wedding is a perfect example.

The unlucky bride made headlines around the world after she spent her wedding day in the E.R because of her homemade bouquet.

Luckily, a TV host just gave her the perfect wedding day do-over.

The Toxic Bouquet

The thrifty bride from Nebraska had made her own wedding decorations, table ornaments, and bouquet using flowers found on her own property.

Too bad those pretty white flowers were lily of the valley, a toxic plant which has been known to kill cows in large doses.

After spending hours making decorations from the plants, Miller rubbed the sap on her face and broke out in an immediate, painful rash.

“Within 15 minutes there was a rash on my face and it started to spread down my neck and arms,” she told People about the incident.

But Miller still insisted to her fiance Jon that the show must go on.

The bride says makeup was dripping down her face because her swollen eyes couldn't stop watering.

After rushing through the ceremony, Jon and Christine stopped by the emergency room for a shot and some pills, then headed to their reception.

Doctors say Miller was lucky not to get permanent eye damage from the mishap.

But after such a nightmarish wedding day, the couple got some good news from Steve Harvey.

Take Two

Harvey heard about the couple's tragic but funny wedding story, and invited them on his talk show Steve.

“I had just never heard of a wedding where the bride had to be rushed to the emergency room for having an allergic reaction to her bouquet," the host told People.

"I really felt like they deserved another opportunity to celebrate and what better place to make it happen than Disney.”

That's right, Harvey arranged for the couple to take a second shot at their dream wedding.

This time the ceremony was in Walt Disney World - and there were no poisonous flowers.

To make up for the couple's disastrous wedding day, Harvey pulled out all the stops.

Miller was gifted a new wedding dress from Demetrios Bridal New York, and the couple arrived at their ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage.

"I ended up crying during the ceremony," Miller confessed, "and I don’t usually cry.”

This couple's unique love story proves life isn't always a bed of roses, but it's not always a toxic bouquet either.
