THE INTERNET—Back in August, dating coach Yue Xu found a one-cent wedding dress at Nordstrom Rack. Since she wasn't planning to get married any time soon, she announced that she would give the dress away to whoever emailed her with the most deserving story by October 1st. Well, October 1st has come and gone, and now Xu has declared a winner. Head to her site, Singlefied, to meet the dress's new owner, a bride whose dream wedding has been postponed for five years due to a surprise pregnancy followed by a serious illness. [Singlefied]
