Naomi came by last Saturday to donate her dress to us, which we are very grateful for because it will sell — it is beeeeeeautiful! — and we can add it to our proceeds donation in Q2!
But how do you know it will sell?
The Brides’ Project has been in business since 2004, selling donated dresses in all sizes, shapes, colours, textures, fabrics, altered once, twice, even three times or more! We know our wedding dresses, because we only receive them — we don’t buy them. Therefore, we don’t choose the dresses, YOU do (when you buy them). Rather, we are professional Wedding Dress Matchmakers
Instead of a salon which orders multiples sizes of a limited number of styles, we have one dress in one size, multiplied by hundreds of styles. Dresses come to us from weddings in all seasons, all climates, salons across the country and individuals from around the world who make their home in Toronto. Sometimes the dresses come from further afield, shipped to us through the mail.
Compared to a regular bridal salon, we have a much greater variety. The dress of your heart’s desire may not be in your size, but don’t despair! We have amazing seamstresses who work incredible magic to make that dress fit.
Which is why we know our dresses: we do our best to find the best match!
Lovely brides like Naomi donate them to us, already altered, which always fit better than salon dresses, requiring fewer alterations or a bustle. And when the donations come with photos, we (and you) can see exactly what the dress looks like on the wedding day, and not on a mannequin or a catalogue model. Naomi looks fantastic in her dress, and so will you!
Naomi, congratulations on your wedding and thank you very much for letting us match-make to fundraise for cancer charities!
