In an ideal world, every woman would have a one-of-a-kind dress for their wedding, but since things don't always go as planned, one bride's perfect dress is also twelve others'.
An Omaha personal trainer, Dawnette Heinz, was lucky to find her gown from David's Bridal when she first set out to look for a dress a year ago. Now, on the occasion of her first wedding anniversary, Heinz got to contemplating about what she could do with the dress she'd likely never wear again.
She decided to use the dress to give back and help make somebody else's day extra special.
Heinz posted an ad on a Facebook classifieds page offering the $1,200 gown for free to a bride who couldn't afford a new dress.
But what Heinz didn't expect at all is how the dress ended up making not just one, but 12 brides feel good on their big day.
So why did Heinz choose to lend her dress instead of sell it?
