15, McNamara posted photos of the dress with the name of the cleaners and the date. Responses poured in. At 2:30 p.m., fellow Cottonwood resident Barbara Higgins posted a link to a news report from Dec. 12, 2012, that featured the story of Kim Jones of Acworth, Ga. A Nashville native, Jones had her wedding dress preserved at White Way Cleaners following her Oct. 25, 1986, nuptials at Forest Hills Baptist Church. Like McNamara, Jones had unsealed her dress to share a special moment with her daughter only to discover that it was not her dress. Both dresses were candlelight in color and had similar beading and applique. The 2012 Tennessean article reported, Kim Jones imagines another mom out there who also may be frantically searching for her wedding dress for her own daughter or might not even know that she, too, has the wrong dress under her bed or in her closet. How right she was.
