Bride's Missing 150-Year-Old Wedding Dress Finally Found

The dress is deeply important to Tess's family

Tess Newall told The Edinburgh Reporter that she had lost her much loved wedding dress which she wore at her East Lothian wedding in June 2016. Facebook commenters agreed, sending well wishes to the new bride when she amended her original post with the good news.

Ms Newall, who got married in June past year, believed the dress had been taken to be sold by administrators Wylie & Bisset.

A distressed bride from Scotland recovered a 150-year-old hand-made antique wedding gown through a social media plea after losing it at the dry-cleaners.

Tess Newall, a resident of Scotland was the one who benefited from the power of social media. Kleen Cleaners went bankrupt and has been under sequestration since October, and the dress was nowhere in sight.

A recent Facebook post shared by Tess Newall about the loss of her dress was shared more than 300,000 times.

"My parents received a phone call this afternoon from the landlord of the property where the dry cleaners is, whose nephew had read about the dress", she told BBC. Tess Newall still plans to have the dress cleaned, but probably at a lace specialist in London where it would be more secured. "He really searched, and he found a pile of old lace which he realized was what he thought was the dress".

'I went up to the attic and found it in the box all wrapped up in tissue paper and when I held it up I couldn't believe it, it was just so handsome and it didn't need all that much adjustment.

'After the wedding the dress had to be cleaned and we were very concerned about who might be the best people to do it.

"It seems that the dress was taken to be sold so it could be winging its way anywhere", Mrs Newall posted on Facebook.

'There was no sign of the dress, nothing to match the ticket we had and we're anxious that it has been sold off.

'Everyone is thrilled that Tess has found the dress, ' he said.
