What Do You Do With Your Dress After Your Wedding

Make the Best of Your Dress After Your Special Day

Whether you have just celebrated your wedding last week or even five years ago, there is one souvenir that you most likely won’t use or perhaps look at again. There it hangs in all its glory in the back of your closet collecting dust and taking up room. It really isn’t benefiting anybody, is it? It shined on your special day, and chances are it is in good enough shape to be used again and by somebody who otherwise wouldn’t have the privilege of wearing such a beautiful gown. If you are interested in making a difference in somebody else’s life, and a little more space in your closet, consider some of these options for donating your wedding dress.

Brides Against Breast Cancer
Donate your dress to this organization and the proceeds they receive from selling the used dress will go toward programs for women with breast cancer and their families. Brides can also purchase their dress from this philanthropy.
Brides Across America
Military brides are often given the short end of the stick when it comes to their dream wedding due to financial struggles and working around their fiancées deployment time frame. This is a great way to support our troops and their loved ones by enabling them the special day they deserve.
The Bridal Garden
This non-profit organization uses the profit from donated wedding dresses to support less fortunate children in New York City. They accept bridal gowns, as well as veils and other accessories.
Brides for Haiti!
Donate your dress to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Maryland and they will use the money from selling the dress to consignment shops to help Haiti and the those in need there.
Mary Madeline Project
Support families who are suffering the loss of a baby by donating your dress to the Mary Madeline Project. Because they are so difficult to find, the dresses are used by people who volunteer their time and talent to make burial outfits and blankets for the infant.
