Bridal dress at 70-TODAYRight after World War II, Ruth Crawford recalls, big weddings were a rarity for Americans. That’s when she married the love of her life, but never got to wear a gorgeous dress.

The 70-year-old widow was still wishing she had gotten to try on wedding dresses, when an organization called Second Wind Dreams made a proposal.

The group, which has granted thousands of wishes for elderly people, brought Ruth’s dream to life at a David’s Bridal shop recently.

Her family and friends surprised her in the waiting room and cheered as Crawford chose her favorite gown.

“When I saw myself in the mirror, I couldn’t believe that that could be me,” she told NBC News’ TODAY show.
