It's been a crazy day. Yesterday when I went to open my mom's wedding dress box, it wasn't her dress! By pure luck we found the owner to the dress in under 24 hours thanks to so many people sharing the post!

Unfortunately, the woman who's dress we had, had a different dress that wasn't my moms! So in the spirit of keeping hope, I am still searching for my mother's dress and veil.

Both my aunt and mom wore this dress. Below are their pictures.

If you or someone you know got married in June of 1985 and took their dress to a Willowick dry cleaner (possibly Mr. Todd's) it might not hurt to take a peek to see if the dress it the right one!

Amazing right? Social media has indeed brought the world closer!

Looks like one must be careful in picking the dry-cleaner before giving the wedding dress for a wash!
