I was reading through Brides magazine at work while bored yesterday and there was an article on what to do with leftover things from the wedding, including flood, decorations, and the wedding dress.
Honestly, WHAT use would come of a wedding dress alot of women will not fit into down the road, and unless they(God forbid) get divorced, will never use again? Well, there are several donations that are tax deductable if you donate to these foundations. Why not help another bride out, and help a cause too? Win win!!
**The Brides Against Breast Cancer contributes cancer patients and their families.
**The Bridal Garden contributes to needy children in New York
**Brides Across America, donates wedding gowns to military brides with husbands in the service overseas
I will definately be donating mine

That’s pretty cool, especially because the cost of wedding dresses these days sadly makes the “expected” dress journey prohibitive to many.

Brides Against Breast Cancer is awesome!!! I had such a wonderful dress-shopping experience there, and I am deeply grateful to the woman whose generosity of spirit allowed me to end up with the beautiful dress I’ll be wearing for our wedding. Thanks in advance for your willingness to donate to any of these organizations!

I’ll be donating my dress to them. FI’s sister passed away from breast cancer.

When I went on these websites to get the links to post on this thread, I read throught the whole link on BABC page, I heard so many good reviews from them, and my Future Mother-In-Law lost quite a few relatives to breast cancer, including my SO’s grandmother. that charity touches home with soooo many people, I will definately be donating my dress there. As I looked through the page on and on, I liked them more and more

There is also a place in Virginia called Church Street Bridal (and I think they may also have a branch in Ontario?), as well as a place in Portland called Adorned in Grace, that accept wedding gown donations for charitable purposes.
