Bride Is Reunited With 150 Year-Old Wedding Dress Thanks To A Viral Post.
Family heirlooms hold a value that cannot be replaced. They're passed down generation after generation within a family. Heirlooms can be anything from a piece of jewelry to a notebook to a piece of clothing. A very common heirloom that's passed down from female to female in a family is a wedding dress.
Tess Newall had fallen in love with her great-great-grandmother's antique wedding gown when she first locked eyes with it. She wore it at her wedding in a Scottish village church to Alfred Newall just last June.
Her family took her dress to the dry cleaners after the wedding but almost instantly regretted it afterwards.
The family had taken the dress to Kleen Cleaners, ironically thinking it was in safe hands. When Newall's father, Patrick Gammell, went to go pick up the dress, however, he found out that the company had gone into administration.

"There was no sign of the dress, nothing to match the ticket we had and we're worried that it has been sold off. I don't want any kind of witch hunt against the company, the only thing that matters to me is getting my dress back," said Newall.
Newall immediately went to the Internet for help. She posted a photo of her dress on Facebook asking for help to find her precious family heirloom. The post instantly went viral.
In just a few hours, the post was shared over 15, 000 times amongst people online who wanted to help spread the word and ultimately help Newall find her dress.
Things were finally looking up when her parents received a phone call one afternoon from the landlord of the property of where the dry cleaners was.
