Is there a wedding charity anywhere that anyone knows of?
I’m considering donating some stuff, and possibly a dress that I purchased that I am no longer wearing just to pay it forward…does such a thing exist?

yes you can donate to brides against breast cancer- i actually almost bought my dress from them, but didn’t find the one.
it’s a traveling bridal show proceeds go to breast cancer research and terminal patients. given my family history with the disease I really wanted to find ‘the one’. However, they were elated that I even gave a donation- they were SO wonderful to work with- the consultants, who are all volunteers made you feel so good too, which at some bridal salons I didn’t even feel.
I will most likely use them for mine when I am done with it unless I develop some unhealthy attachment to them.
here is their site.
hope this helps!

The Brides Project in Ann Arbor. Doesn’t directly donate to women in need, but resells at very low cost and all profits go to support a local breast cancer charity (and the store is volunteer run and in donated space…so it is mostly profits). They will occasionally make even more discounts if a woman really can’t afford a gown, too.
PM me if you need their contact info. I bought my Kenneth Pool there for a fraction of the price 🙂

@09bmlaw: oh cool i’ll look into them!
Yeah I dont want to just give it away…I really want to know who it is and that they cannot afford a dress, its a gorgeous dress, I spent a lot of $ on it, its brand new never been worn,…I guess I’m hoping that there is one special girl out there that is dreaming of one like it and doesn’t have the $. I dunno…maybe its a pipe dream lol

This is my boss:
She’s leaving on a trip in a week and a half. She has enough dresses for this trip, but will be taking another trip in the fall, i imagine. Her brides in Haiti are a bit more conservative and prefer some sort of strap or sleeve, but we can add those to many dresses if needed. After the wedding, the dresses are kept to be part of a microbusiness that provides income for a woman at each location, by renting them out 🙂
