One day, she finally laid her eyes on her dream wedding dress while scrolling through Instagram. “I tried to get the dress, and it didn’t work,” she revealed.
Later, she discovered that Heath had worn the same dress during her wedding three years prior. In a hopeful attempt to secure the gown, she reached out to Heath via a message.
Heath, sharing the story in her TikTok video, initially responded with a firm “no.” However, upon learning that Crouch resided in South Africa, she had a change of heart and decided to lend the dress to her.
Reflecting on her decision, Heath explained, “So I started thinking about how I cried the first time I put it on and how this dress, which was so important to me, has just been languishing in the closet for the past three years. So, I said, ‘You know what, if you can send it back to me after you’re done, sure, go ahead, you can borrow it!’”
However, the dress had quite the journey before reaching its destination. From Los Angeles, it traveled to Crouch’s mom in Surrey, United Kingdom, before finally making its way to Johannesburg in South Africa.
“There was some real sisterhood of the traveling pants magic because she put the dress on, and it fit her absolutely perfectly,” Heath recounted.
The borrowed dress marked the beginning of a genuine friendship, as Crouch extended an invitation to Heath for her own wedding. They packed up, and before they knew it, they were enjoying an incredible trip in Cape Town.
Beyond the enjoyable activities they shared, Crouch’s family warmly embraced them, from the bridal shower to family dinners and the bachelor’s party
