I apologize… it’s been a while, and we’re so happy to receive your emails about your weddings with photos to let us be there vicariously!
So… without further ado, it’s time to share some of those!
The first is from Stacey who wrote:
I’ve been in touch with you a couple times over the years (my mom too), and finally, I’m sending my dress back to you, so hopefully a third bride will wear it. It was sooooo hard to part with it, I must admit, but I know it just makes sense. Rather than it collecting dust in my closet, this dress will be passed on with even more proceeds going to support cancer charities. It means a lot to me, and feels good, no matter how tough it was!
A very close family friend, who was best friends with my Nana, spoke at our Canadian wedding (2011). It was amazing to have her there, and hear her words of advice, love and wisdom. She passed away from breast cancer in 2012. My best friend was then diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, and is totally kick ass fighting it! She’s the toughest person I know, and I’ve learned and continue to learn a lot from her, especially about being grateful for everything, no matter how small. And I’m incredibly grateful that the Brides’ Project was created!
I heard about the Brides’ Project from a friend who bought her dress there, in 2010. Since then, a few of my friends have either bought their dress from you, or given their dress to you, or both. Everyone loves it! You all do a fantastic job!
Stacey, congrats to you and Sascha, and thank you for bringing the dress back for another trip down the aisle. That dress has accumulated some seriously great karma… and mileage!!
And then there is the lovely Sarah who was married earlier this year, and wore one of our frocks. She looks phenomenal, and these pics by friends and the folks at KPStudios capture a wee bit of her glow on the big day! Her dress is back here to be loved again, and worthy of it! Thank you so much Sarah, and enjoy a lifetime of love and happiness with your hubby
Lesli brought a stunning piece to share with us after her wedding. As she says,
