A Southern California woman is desperately searching for her beloved wedding dress after her father accidentally donates it to Goodwill.

Rebecca Nguyen kept the dress she wore in the hallway in 2017 at her parents’ house until she realized her father was clearing the property to sell after he separated from her mother.

In a panic, she called him only to discover that everything, including the stunning floor-length dress that had brought her Marine husband to tears on his special day, had been donated to Goodwill in Brea, California.

Nguyen has spent her days calling places in Orange County and posting on Facebook and TikTok begging others in an attempt to get her dress back.

“Honestly, I didn’t think I would be that attached to it,” she told NBC 4 LA. “But then when I found that dress, I put it on and felt like the most beautiful version of myself.”

According to Nguyen, her dress has been at her parents’ house since their wedding in August 2017 and she had never worried about it getting lost.

However, when her parents separated, she noticed that her father was cleaning the house before selling it, and she began to worry about the condition of the dress.

“And he said, ‘There’s nothing left,’ and I was like, ‘Oh my God,'” Nguyen said.

The dress was finally delivered to Goodwill sometime in late April or early May.

“Unfortunately, the stuff got donated to Goodwill, and my wedding dress was accidentally donated with some of the other stuff,” she told NBC4.

He immediately sprang into action, calling the original Goodwill where the dress was left. That did not turn out to be fruitful.

“We called Goodwill right away and then they said, ‘Well, unfortunately, we don’t sell wedding dresses at this location,'” she said.

The dress may have been shipped to a warehouse and then redistributed to another Goodwill location in the area for sale.

Since that initial call, he has contacted several other stores in hopes they can find him.

“They’re helping,” he said. ‘All Goodwill stores have a photo of the dress and an email with my information. So we’re doing everything we can.

This is the Goodwill in Brea, California, where the dress was accidentally donated.

In addition to her calls to Goodwills in the Southern California region, she says she has been proactive on social media, sharing her story in Facebook groups and on TikTok.

‘I posted, I don’t know, I mean like 30 or 40 Facebook pages. Like all the local pages I can find, you know, wedding pages, things like that,” she said.

In a TikTok video she posted, she shares photos of the dress along with a plea to anyone who has seen or purchased it to report it immediately.

The TikTok video has received almost 30,000 views and hundreds of comments.

“People are being really amazing and sharing,” he said.

One commenter commented that it would take someone with a big heart who has already bought it to end up returning it.

Nguyen said he knows someone may have already bought it and he just wants to work with that buyer to get it back eventually.

“There’s a very good chance someone already has the dress, and I understand that they’re probably in love with it because I was in love with it, and finding it at Goodwill is a great score,” she said.

‘I’m fine with whoever has this wedding dress, like she’s wearing it to her wedding. But, you know, if I could pay them to get it back, that would be, that’s all I’m asking for,” the SoCal woman continued.

“It could be sitting in the warehouse, still waiting to be resolved,” said Chris Sewitsky, retail director at Brea Goodwill.

A Goodwill representative who spoke to CBS Los Angeles said there is still a chance the dress hasn’t been resolved at all.

“It could be sitting in the warehouse, still waiting to be resolved,” said Chris Sewitsky, retail director at Brea Goodwill.

‘It just depends on where and what time of day you arrived. That store is a very busy store. Some things stay in that store, others go back to main distribution,” Sewitsky continued.

“So, we hope we can find it because it’s a unique item,” he said.

As she continues to search, she told NBC4 that she’s hopeful this ends happily and is just a fun story to tell her grandkids one day.
