That’s what a local woman did nearly 40 years ago, only to discover when she finally opened it that the dress was not the one she wore on her wedding day.

She said how exciting it was to open the box, then recalled her own disappointment when she didn’t see her own dress.

“My wedding day was the best day of my life. And I know looking at the pictures I remember all the happiness and love from that day. And I was hoping that if we find the owner of this dress no matter what life has in store for her that she may have that moment when she remembers her day and all the love and happiness she felt,” he said. she declared.
