Give the Gift of your Gown!
Your wedding gown was perfect, but admit it: You haven't thought much about your dress since the post-reception dry cleaning. Most of us are guilty of sticking our wedding dress in the back of a closet and forgetting about it. Sure, you can always keep it around for sentimental reasons (even though it's probably taking up precious space)… Or you could make the generous choice to donate your wedding dress to an awesome cause!

Your donation can help a family or bride in need, while also giving your dress new life. And if that's not reason enough to gift your gown, donations are also tax deductible.
Donate your dress to any of these nationwide organizations, and they'll put it to great use:
- Adorned in Grace: Resells donated gowns and accessories, with all proceeds used towards preventing sex trafficking and helping sex trafficking victims.
- Brides Across America: Provides gowns for military and first responder brides that are burdened by financial hardships like deployments.
- Brides Against Breast Cancer: Donated wedding dresses are made affordable for others, while helping fund breast cancer causes.
- Brides for a Cause: Sells donated dresses to raise funds for various women-focused charities.
- Forever Angels of Virginia: Turns donated wedding dresses into free infant gowns for babies who have passed away in the NICU.
And of course, you can always donate your wedding dress to a local Goodwill or Salvation Army.
You already said "I Do." Now you can proudly declare, "I Donate!"
