@conkin420:  What about contacting military bases to see if there are any brides in need? Or how you could go about contacting them.

I am wondering the same thing, my SIL gave me a brand new dress but I didn’t use it so she said to give it away.

In Tronto there is a place called The Brides project. They take donated dresses, sell them and then dsnare the profits to various charities. Check them out!

I don’t know if you are dead set on donation, but selling it is a great option as well. 

Check out preownedweddingdresses.com which is sort of  ebay for wedding gowns, minus the public bidding. You could also sell it to a local consignment shop, and some consignment shops specialize in bridal and formalwear.

Just a thought!

@Mz_HyProfyl:  this.   I’ve been to two if their events, and I learned later that my cousin’s wife bought her wedding dress at one of their events.   I view it as a two-fold donation….becauseit helps brides and cancer patients!

@PeachSnapple:  It is a 2 for one deal. My sister actually found and bought her dress the other day. while there like 5 more ladies did as well. I plan to donate my Bridesmaid dress to them, after my friend wedding in a few weeks. a great cause.

@conkin420:  woah, who quoted you that?

i’ve only heard good things about brides against breast cancer. if my dress wasn’t a damaged sample (it’s minor damage, but it’s still damaged), i’d donate mine to them after the wedding.

You can also look for The Cinderella Project in the state you live in (which is where I donated mine) or a similar group that does free prom dresses.  I know The Cindarella Project near me also collects wedding gowns and gives them to military or brides in need.  It’s also an excellent way to clear you closets of all those bridesmaids dresses. 🙂
