How Is My Wedding Dress or Accessory Used?

Free Use: Our mission provides free use of a wedding gown to our qualified brides who are on a budget of $3,000 or less. Countless times, a bride walks into our shop with tears in her eyes as she discovers a gorgeous gown that she would otherwise never be able to afford.

Bargain: In order to meet our monthly leasing cost and continue to further our mission, we sell any wedding gown in our inventory to any bride no matter the budget for $150 each plus tax. Many brides come to our shop amazed at the variety of styles we offer, many of which are from last season.

International Charity: From time to time, we must thin out our inventory, so we partner with several charities that provide free wedding gowns to women in Haiti and Africa where stylish white and off-white wedding gowns are unimaginable due to costs. We have made multiple donations to these organizations in the past six months. Please know that your donation is appreciated, and it will go to a grateful bride somewhere in the world.
