Rachel Guacin is thrilled. After contacting 3 On Your Side recently, her missing wedding dress magically appeared in the mail.
"It's a different feeling knowing you picked out the dress at a shop and you agreed to pick up the dress at the shop and then you go to the mail and there it is," Guacin said. "It's a little different."
When Guacin was first profiled in a 3 On Your Side report, she and her three bridesmaids were devastated.
Guacin had ordered a wedding dress and her bridesmaids had ordered three gowns from a business called Thelma's Bridal and Tux.
However, when they went to make their final payment and pick up their dresses, Thelma's Bridal and Tux was shut down and cleaned out.
"My heart stopped and my stomach turned," Guacin recalled.
In my first report, you could see that the women made out their checks, not to Thelma's Bridal, but to a guy named Rudy Herrera.
I found Herrera's Facebook page with plenty of photos of Thelma's Bridal before it was shut down. I also found a photo of Thelma.
After 3 On Your Side revealed this information, Guacin said she received a mysterious phone call from a guy who didn't want to identify himself but claimed he was mailing Guacin her wedding dress and the three dresses for her bridesmaids.
"He said, 'Here is the tracking number and please tell Gary Harper this is what we are doing and this is what the plans are to return the dress,'" Guacin said.
And just recently, Guacin received not only her three bridesmaids' gowns in the mail, but her wedding gown too. Guacin said it all happened because of 3 On Your Side.
"I'm very happy to know that I have my dress and I will be able to walk down the aisle with the beautiful dress, so thank you very much!" Guacin told 3 On Your Side.
Rachel's wedding day is Oct. 20. I wish her the best, and I'm glad I was able to help out.
