It wasn’t until two weeks later that the couple realized what had happened. They contacted the store, but an employee said the dress had already been sold.
"He thinks it got sold for $20, $25. My heart sunk. That's not something that's replaceable at all. Even if we were to go and buy the exact same dress from David's Bridal, it's not the one I married the love of my life in,” said Gelbert.

Gelbert has posted on social media asking friends and family to help her find the dress. She hopes the person who purchased it will return it.
"It's really nobody's fault here. It's a pure accident, but it would mean the world to me if somebody would like to give it back or let me buy it back off of them. It's just heartbreaking,” she said.
