The dress at the heart of this story and all those shown in the "1979 newspaper wedding photos" Jennifer views in the library, are strapless. In fact, that style wedding gown was nearly unheard of in 1979 and, according to fashion site racked.com, the strapless trend only began to emerge in the mid 1990s, at least 15 years after the movie nuptials were supposed to have taken place.

One of the better Garage Sale Mystery Series ......
........ but with a sloppy sappy whitewashed ending. Why did Director: Peter DeLuise , end this episode with that goofy oh so feel good ending? I found the buildup in solving the wedding dress mystery very absorbing and well written as Jennifer Shannon brings the events together on that day in 1979 in line with her inquisitive research.
Her deductive reasoning while evaluating the evidence she finds added a more than usual interest to this episode. Then when the two principle characters confess to the detective what happened the day of the wedding I was expecting a deeper secret to come to light after 36 years had past. Such as a hidden affair between the socially prominent bride of that day and the lesser prominent auto garage repair owner.
But no! Hallmark threw in the sugar coating and nostalgia and everybody goes home happy and pleased. That just ruined the mystery for me.
