Tess Newall, a newly married bride, lost her 147-year-old wedding dress gifted by her great great grandmother after her wedding. She said that she had given off her dress for dry-cleaning but they said that they lost it. She also had a doubt that they might have sold their antique dress. But, she decided to take the help of social media and posted on her Facebook timeline asking for people to help her find the dress. Luckily, a man from nearby said that he found 'a crumbled heap of laces' lying on the floor. He then informed Tess' parents and now the dress is safe with them.
The dress was handmade by Tess' great great grandmother back in 1870. Tess wore it in her wedding in June 2016. Really the internet proved itself to be the almighty.
"There may be greater issues in the world, but this means the world to me, so please help me find it," wrote Tess on her Facebook wall. The post immediately went viral earning 46k likes and 302k shares.
She gave off her precious dress at Kleen Cleaners in Edinburgh, and when asked in return they said that they had lost it. Tess also doubted that her dress might have been sold.
