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.
