So there is a local plea for donations to be made in the name of Amanda Hogle, to:
White Satin Bridal
24047 West Lockport Street, Suite 101
Plainfield, Illinois 60544-1888
Phone: (815) 609-0031
I donated $5 with a credit card over the phone.
Her husband was laid off, she is a stay at home mom for their 2 young children, and they are now having trouble paying for a very reasonably priced gown.
Her wedding is October 23rd and I know we are all strapped for money, but I know I could afford $5 to help her out. Good karma will surely follow 🙂

@stefanieastronaut: Is there any more information about Amanda’s story? Does White Satin Bridal have info on their site?? I am a budget bride, too. Even though I am in another state, I will gladly help another bride-in-need. I would just like some more info to verify the story.

@Scottielass: There is more!
And I called and spoke to the woman at White Satin Bridal and she told me what she knew, which was just that people had been calling and putting money towards her balance.
I have also spoken with her fiance, Tim, about hosting their reception at my parents home, in the neighboring town. (They are planning on getting married at a community park that has a gazebo & lake.
