Storyline

When Hannah Pinkham's fiancé writes he's finally shipping home, her mother makes a fairy tale wedding dress, but while she's fitting it the knock on the door is not him, but the dreaded officer-messenger. Years later she sends it to her nephew, photographer Travis Cleveland, but his model-bride Cass only pretends to like it to get rid of his loyal assistant. After he walks off with it, his car gets stolen with the dress in it... And it keeps passing on from person to person, but will anybody actually get married in it or does it just keep bringing bad luck to couples? Written by KGF Vissers

What an enjoyable film!
6 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have often thought of this movie, not able to remember the title, but through the "magic" of the internet, and the above listed scenarios, am now able to run this to ground! Is it possible this film is available on VHS or DVD? The crying fiancé of the soldier, loosing the dress out the window of the car, the twists and turns of the plot, tying all characters together in quirky and "how did that happen?" ways, was such a treat and a welcomed relief from the drudge that is most TV movies. I want my best friend to see this, I want my husband to see this. I was uplifted, saddened, and tearfully joyful by the end, but most of all, I was entertained!
