Eco-friendly wedding boutique
For the brides seeking their dream dress, many share the sentiment that if they’d be spending the money anyway, they’d love to see it make a contribution to their community. At the Brides’ Project, all profits from the sale of the gowns go to cancer charities. The dresses are either used by previous brides, samples from salons or designers, or in the rare case they’re a second dress that was never worn. At 50 per cent or less of the retail price, it also happens to be easy on the finances and reduces your carbon footprint.
At the Brides’ Project, this wonderful new spin on an old tradition has raised close to $1 million for cancer charities — funding research and treatment as well as providing patient and family care throughout the battle.
