How To Donate Your Dress and Save Breasts

| August 31, 2010

{ Let me preface this post by saying these are all simply my personal thoughts and feelings. I don’t mean to offend anyone who thinks differently. It’s YOUR wedding! }

I’m not really the type of person who finds sentiment in material belongings.

I don’t know why, really. Maybe it’s because I lose things easily. Or maybe it’s because my mom taught me at a young age that cleaning out my closet can be…well, gratifying! I L.O.V.E. going through my old stuff and bagging up things I don’t need anymore. Clean freak? Maybe. Hoarder? Never.

Anyways, many other brides out there think like I do and don’t see the purpose in holding on to a dress that I literally will only wear once {at best twice, if I do a day-after shoot or something}. My mom held on to hers, and the first time after her wedding she ever saw it was to pull it and show me. That’s when she realized it had stains all over it. Ummm, no thanks.

In a era of awesome technology, I would rather pay gobs of money to have awesome photos and videos capture the beauty of *ME* {not some white dress} on my big day and cherish those forever, rather than hold on to some piece of clothing that, in twenty years, will probably just make me depressed because I can no longer fit into it.

A lot of brides choose to try and re-sell their gowns after the wedding, but that just didn’t really speak to me. When I heard about Brides Against Breast Cancer, though, I was hooked.

Sponsored by Making Memories, Brides Against Breast Cancer is a program designed to grant wishes, by providing affordable wedding gowns, for metastatic breast cancer patients, while continuing to support, educate and increase resource awareness.
The thousands of generous donations they receive from designers, manufactures, bridal shops, and individuals worldwide, enables Making Memories to grant final wishes to women and men suffering from terminal breast cancer. Their Foundation resurrects these dresses, giving them new life as a bride’s “dream gown” while the proceeds from the sale of these treasured possessions help grant wishes and memory making events for women and men who are losing their battle with breast cancer.

I don’t want to come off all pretentious or anything and try to make anyone who doesn’t donate their dress feel bad. If you, unlike me, DO find sentiment in things, by all means keep your dress and cherish it. If you, unlike me, are practical and budget-conscious, by all means re-sell your gown to save some cash. But if you, like me, want to find easy, simple ways to use your wedding to try and make a difference in someone’s life, I strongly encourage you to look into Brides Against Breast Cancer.

You would forever be making a difference for a woman who wants nothing more than to feel beautiful and to celebrate life.

If you want to help out even more, consider purchasing your gown from one of the tours. To see a list of cities the Tour will be visiting, click here.
