3 Charities to Donate Your Wedding Dress To

Last week we wrote about 5 things to do with your bridal gown after the wedding.  The last of these tips was to donate your wedding gown to a charity or organization, but we felt that there was too much information to only mention it.  This week's blog from the most trusted bridal salon in South Florida goes into more details about the places that will accept your wedding dress and help you to pass along the joy that the dress gave you to someone else.

Angelus Bridal & Formals did a little bit of research, and we found 3 organizations that make sure that your bridal gown is put to good use after your wedding.  You can get more detailed information about each of these charities by clicking on the links for each below.     

Wish Upon A Wedding

This group was founded by a wedding planner that believes everyone deserves the chance to marry their soul mate, even if life has thrown tough challenges their way that might make planning a wedding difficult.  This nonprofit organization grants weddings and vow renewals for couples facing serious illness or a life-altering circumstance.  They are partnered with Brides for a Cause, who not only provides this group with wedding dresses, but also 50% of the proceeds from the donated dresses they sell on their own.  Chapters are currently located in only a few towns across the country, but they grant wishes in all 50 states.  

Brides Across America
Every year this group gives away over 2.000 wedding dresses to military brides.  Their mission is to inspire and express gratitude and appreciation for the service men and women serving in the armed forces.  Deployments, financial hardships, and other challenges that are unique to military families can make planning a dream wedding difficult.  Events are held 2 times a year, generally near Independence Day and Veteran's Day, to offer free dresses to qualifying military brides.    

Angel Gowns Florida
This ministry was created to make very special gowns for newborns who pass away in the hospital.  It may seem like a small comfort, but it means a great deal to the parents to have this special piece of clothing for family visitation and photographs to remember their child by.  The baby gowns are created from donated wedding dresses.  These are not for sale, but given as a gift to the grieving families.  If you choose to donate, you will receive a photo of the child's gown that is made from your donation.  


There are organizations all over the country that will accept gently used wedding dresses to brighten a woman's special day.  You should be able to find one close to you, no matter where you live.  The national organizations above can probably help you with your search too.

When you are ready to begin the search for your own special dress to get married in, start by making an appointment to try on the exquisite wedding dresses in our Pompano Beach store.  We will get to know you and your style so that we can offer you exactly what you are dreaming about.  Angelus Bridal & Formals has the bridal fashions to help make your wedding day perfect.
