Melody Thomas Scott presented the wedding dress from the 2002 wedding of Nikki and Victor Newman to be inducted into the Smithsonian. It was noted that the character Nikki Newman has indeed been married 12 times and her official name is:

Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharp Abbott Newman

Undoubtedly the reason Melody was selected to be the wearer/bearer of the Daytime Wedding Dress to the collection of the Smithsonian. 

Corbin Bernsen and Jess Walton MC the memorial portion of the show as we remember those from in front of the camera as well as those from behind the scenes, who are no longer with us:
