Church Street Bridal

If you are a bride on a budget and want to help a good cause consider making a trip down to Lynchburg, VA to check out Church Street Bridal. All of the dresses there range from $200-300 and all the proceeds go to help fund projects at the YWCA and the Domestic Violence Shelter there. The dresses are brand new and are donated from other bridal stores and bridal designers. Previous donations have come from Jim Hjelm, Kleinfeld Bridal in New York, and over a dozen local bridal stores.

They also sell veils, hairpins, tiaras, formal gowns, and tuxes. All for SUPER cheap.

And for after the wedding let your bridesmaid's know about their Prom Dress Project. Gently used and new dresses are sold at a discounted price so girls can afford to go to prom. Your bridesmaids could make a donation so that at least someone else might wear that dress again...plus they could write it off as a tax deduction.

Hi, I just had to respond- I just bought my wedding gown from Church Street Bridal this past Saturday! I took a friend there a few months ago when I first heard of them, and she bought her wedding dress there too. The women who work there are warm, amazingly helpful and enthusiastic (Cyndi is especially wonderful), and the gowns are incredible. The prices actually go up to $350 (who cares, right?? still a steal!), and though many are brand new, a few were samples before being donated- but even those are mostly in perfect condition. I walked out with the gown of my dreams for $300 (beyond my dreams, really- I could never afford a dress like it from a traditional bridal shop), and it's so great to know that the money is going to help women in need. DEFINITELY worth a trip down! *One more note- all sales are final, and they don't take credit cards.*
