"DRESS GIVEAWAY!!! Hi Future Brides! I am giving away this beautiful dress! It is seriously amazing!" Amber captioned a series of pictures from a recent photo shoot Amber had done in the sleek and elegant gown.

"It's a size 8 that has been altered slightly around the straps. If you are interested in this dress, like, comment, and DM me with your love story! If you know someone in need of a wedding dress, tag them please!"

Amber concluded, "I will be deciding on a winner by Friday evening! @kaylasadamsphotography @savvybrideboutique @joyfulbloomsbymekayla @bansenfarms."

Amber's wedding dress is a trumpet-style gown that boasts a high neckline, an open back, and a large train. The dress is embellished with crystals and sparkles from head to toe.

Comments of thanks and praise poured in from fans on Amber's Instagram post.

"It's so gorgeous! What a nice thing to do for someone!" one person wrote to Amber.

"What an awesome thing to donate!" commented a fan.

"You are a kind soul!" wrote another.

One potential bride wanted to know specifics, asking Amber, "But how tall are you?"

Amber replied, "5'2."

Amber's images from the photo shoot were edgy and modern. She wore her hair down curly and flowing, and she rocked a smokey eye as well as black nail polish.

When Amber wed Matt, a former professional basketball player, on Married at First Sight, however, she wore her hair pulled back into a tight bun with a crystal headband. On her wedding day, Amber also went for a natural look for her makeup with gold and mauve tones.

Amber announced the winner of her giveaway contest early Friday evening -- and according to the Married at First Sight star, it was not an easy decision.

"So I am ready to choose a winner, and I won't lie -- I was stuck between like five people, cuz you guys are awesome," she said an Instagram Stories video.

"Seriously, I heard some of the best love stories -- y'all have overcome a lot," Amber continued.

"I wish I had five wedding dresses to give away because you guys are awesome!"

According to a subsequent post, Amber selected Brittany Soles, a 25-year-old engaged woman from North Carolina, as her winner.

Amber's marriage to Matt on Married at First Sight's latest season that was set in Charlotte, NC ended in divorce, although their romance started out promising from a viewer's perspective.

On the MAFS season, which wrapped on Lifetime in September, Matt had emotionally checked out of his marriage to Amber quite early on in the process and treated her poorly throughout the eight-week experiment.

Not only did Matt stop sleeping with Amber and disappear some nights, sometimes for 24 hours at a time -- leaving Amber alone to cope with her pre-existing feelings of abandonment -- but he was also accused of cheating with multiple women.

Amber put every ounce of effort she had into her marriage, but she left Married at First Sight crushed and heartbroken.

However, Amber developed lasting friendships with fellow Married at First Sight alums, and she now claims to be stronger, wiser and more confident than ever.

Amber has been focusing on herself since the show ended, and she recently confirmed on Instagram she's currently single and not dating.

"I don't have a man nor do I want a man at this point in my life," Amber commented on one of her posts.

The tenth season of Married at First Sight is set to premiere January 1 on Lifetime and feature couples who live in the Washington, D.C area.

The series has also been picked up for an eleventh edition, which will also air next year and likely be filmed in New Orleans, LA, based on a recent casting call.

Married at First Sight features experts matching up pairs of strangers based on their compatibility, goals, physical type, hobbies, religion, views of marriage and gender roles, and more.

Last season's experts were sociologist Dr. Pepper, marriage counselor Pastor Calvin Roberson, and newcomer Dr. Viviana Coles, a psychotherapist who replaced Dr. Jessica Griffin.

After meeting for the first time on their big day, each couple gets married and the next six to eight weeks of their lives are documented -- beginning with their wedding ceremony, reception and honeymoon, and continuing with the joys and struggles of daily life as they move in together and adjust to their new life as newlyweds.

In addition to Amber and Matt, Married at First Sight's ninth season also ended with Iris Caldwell and Keith Manley getting a divorce. However, two couples opted to stay together: Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson as well as Deonna McNeill and Gregory Okotie.
